To answer this question in a definitive manner I think you need to focus on exactly what field of mobile GIS development you are interested in pursuing. Based on your current job title, are you interested in developing applications that are primarily geared towards implementing GIS in the field, i.e. data collection, GPS tracking, etc? Or a different field, ...

First how are you planning to connect the external GPS to your iOS device? Because you either have to purchase an external GPS that already has the capability to connect to an iOS device, or the GPS device can transmit the location via Bluetooth Low Energy (LE).

The app is very easy to install, just download it and enter your username and password for arcGIS online. I am not aware of any way to install something like the ArcGIS software suite onto an iOS device. ...

I think the prudent action is to forget about the mapping side, and pick the device that fits the organisation/task the best (which is covered by an ESRI api). Once you've got the best fit from a device point of view, then use the ESRI api that goes with it. IMHO picking he phone based on the api is looking at it backwards. It is worth bearing in mind, ...

Operational (editable) map layers can be a local mobile cache created with ArcGIS Desktop or can be created by adding an ArcGIS Server 10 service with the Mobile Data Access capability. Here is a ...

This is the type of error message one can get when one tries to make an HTTP request in an application (ArcGIS Mobile) that is built on the .NET Framework. It is a general Microsoft error message that is not related to the Esri part of the software, i.e., it is the .NET part that generates that message but the cause can come from both sides. It would be ...

The ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Windows Mobile only works with .db files. The only way I succeeded in using shapefile data was to export an empty .db file with Arc Catalog, then, in my application, programatically transfer the shapefile data into the .db file. The major downside was that all the elements transfered appeared as "added features"

I was going to suggest using the dojo gesture library, grabbing the screen coordinates,converting them using esri/geometry/screenUtils, but it appears that dojox/gesture/tap does not contain the pageX or pageY details in the returned event. open ticket. If this did work, you could capture the double tap like this fiddle. Using Hammer.js I got very close ...

Since you're already taking java classes, I'd look at the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Android, which borrows heavily from java and provides packages that support easy consumption of ArcGIS Server. Still, as others have mentioned, it is worth reviewing the native vs HTML5 debate.

So I found the answer and it has to do with more requirements: 1) MXD's main frame must have extent specified explicitly and 2) All new records created in ArcGIS Mobile must have a geometry and the geometry must be within the extent of the frame of the source MXD. The code above will work fine if I add this: row[table.GeometryColumnIndex] = new ...

No surprise there so far, on most 2.x devices you don't get multitouch in the webkit browser although the device can recognise more than one touch. There is an (early) polyfill available, which works for OpenStreetmap and GoogleMaps, but not for the link you provided :( Update: Thanks to Sam007's clarification the general issue cannot be related to 2.x ...
