mapwith.us Mobile

Mapwith.us Mobile is the Android and iOS app counterpart to mapwith.us Web. Mapwith.us mobile allows users to collect, view, and edit location based information from a mobile device. Mapwith.us Mobile is a completely configurable app. The look and feel, and workflow can be configured from mapwith.us web. Visit the mapwith.us website and navigate to Profile>Group>Mobile to configure your mobile application. Mapwith.us web also works on and offline allowing users to cache maps and mapping data and sync when connectivity is available.

The mobile app is simple yet powerful. The following pages describe the functionality of the user interface.

Locate
This button sends a message to your phones location services (GPS, wifi, cell) to find your current location. The button's label can be changed in the Profile>Group>Mobile settings on mapwith.us web. When this button is pressed, the label disappears, and accuracy information is shown, until the devices location services returns an acceptable location.
Pin Drop
This button creates a map item. The map item is temporary until it is saved using the Uploads button. The functionality can be modified using mapwith.us web. For example, by default when a pin is dropped, a menu of all data types shows up allowing you to create a simple or complex web item. However, you can change this by setting a default Template. When a default template is set, a custom data form pops up immediately after the pin drop, streamlining your data collection process.
Settings
This button opens the settings page. See the mobile Settings documentation for more information.
Uploads
This button opens the uploads page. See mobile Uploads documentation for more information.
