No end of problems with syncing, in app map management, bluetooth pairing recognition, etc. etc. This doesn't even include the constant headaches on the back end. All while paying out exorbitant license fees to ESRI for highly unstable products that suffer constant problems with bugs and unresolved issues. Find another solution if you can. ESRI clients should be compensated for down time caused by product instability. Thanks once again ESRI for continuing your focus on marketing and monopoly building instead of product development. Thanks Dangermond.
We use the ArcGIS and Esri suite of tools for our volunteer work with the Forest Service. While the software is ideal for our application, the Collector app was never problem free and is getting much worse as time goes on. It won't run more that 10 minutes on my Pixel 2XL running the latest Android version (8.1) without crashing, and it no longer works at all on our tablets and phones running Android 4 or 5. Apple products seem to be supported well, Esri needs to do some work on the Android platform.
The past couple of releases have made this application perform worse than before. I am unable to switch maps, search, or manage maps without the app crashing. Related tables are not supported like they used to be (child with multiple parent relationships). Esri support rarely knows a solution outside of "recreate everything", and that doesn't always fix the issue.
How can I ask people in my company to use this app most of the time it either takes forever to load a map or crashes. Stop adding new stuff before make sure the old capabilities are fully functional.
The work I WOULD have used this app for is very important. But see all of the poor reviews in Android devices? Those poor reviews are justified. Garbage!
The app doesn't offer post processing. That sucks. Trying to create features in areas with poor connectivity really sucks. The offline mode is nice but since we're a gas distribution company our operators have to constantly download offline maps with imagery every hour. Traveling distance is far but they need imagery with offline mode due to poor connectivity issues. Logging feature lines with poor connectivity is a huge problem. If your signal sucks then you most likely won't be able to add line features. We had to increase the intergrated receivers range just to add a simple line to the map & it was way off.. I would of rather free hand it. Snapping is a no go. Very disappointing. What's the point of adding points and line if you can't snap? I'll rate this decently only because the our operators appreciate being able to see the map out in the field. Probably the only positive thing.
