I am excited to announce Release 1.3 of Orbit Mobile for Windows and iPad!  We've added a number of new features and have put considerable effort into ensuring cross-platform parity between the Windows and iPad versions of the app.

 

Orbit Mobile for Windows

 

Here are some of the improvements we've made to the Windows version:

  • Field user can now create a task, not associated with a feature, when in a disconnected state
  • We now provide a Delete Task tool to remove any task created by the user
  • Display and sort tasks by due date and completion date
  • Photo viewer is larger and we now support more image types:  BMP, GIF, JPG, PNG, and TIFF
  • While disconnected, you can now add a caption to a newly added image or delete a newly added image
  • We now support viewing of file attachments such as PDF and Microsoft Office documents
  • We added a character counter for text fields
  • There is now an About menu showing the app version number and copyright notices
