What's New in ArcPad
Data Synchronization—ArcGIS 10, 10.1, and 10.2 feature services are directly supported and can be accessed, edited, and synchronized in ArcPad 10.2. With the new data synchronization framework introduced in ArcGIS 10.2, ArcPad synchronizes incremental changes with the published service. Hosted feature services and connections to ArcGIS Online and Portal for ArcGIS are also supported.
Integration with ArcGIS Online—Store templates as an ArcPad project in ArcGIS Online. Browse ArcGIS Online from within ArcPad to select a template and create a QuickProject from it. Once data has been collected in QuickProject, upload the new ArcPad project to ArcGIS Online to share and collaborate with others.
Automated Field Data Collection—Minimize editing by using Quick Fields to add your own custom functions and automate data collection from the field. Quickly populate feature attributes in your map with automatic form content.
