Today we are pleased to announce the availability of AppStudio for ArcGIS Beta. Here are three reasons why AppStudio for ArcGIS will matter to you.
- Cross-Platform native apps: Watch this video and you’ll know why we built AppStudio for ArcGIS: so YOU can be a rock star and build your own ArcGIS native apps! Build them ONCE, and they automatically run on Android, iOS, Windows, OS X, and Linux platforms.
- Apps for the public: With AppStudio for ArcGIS you can transform your existing ArcGIS work into beautiful consumer friendly apps for the Google Play and Apple app stores. For a taste of what you can build, download this app (available for Android and iOS). It was built with AppStudio… without writing a single line of code. Ready for the challenge? You will also find app templates for you to create map galleries to show off your work and even crowd-sourcing apps.
- Apps for the enterprise: Since AppStudio for ArcGIS leverages the power of the ArcGIS Runtime, you can build your own native apps featuring advanced GIS capabilities such as offline visualization, editing, querying and analysis. On top of that, AppStudio includes a useful utility called AppStudio Player that will let you easily share your own apps within your organization using your own organizational groups.
Start building your apps now on any machine: your Mac, Windows or even Linux!
Finally, we have launched the AppStudio for ArcGIS App Challenge! Build your own app, and send us a short video explaining what it does, who it’s for and why you built it. The builder of the best app will be announced on Esri social media channels – you may even get featured on the Esri website!
