I used a tablet and phone last summer to enter scouting data using Connected Farm Scout in addition to FW Mobile on a Trimble Nomad. What I can tell you, for a guy with bifocals, using the Nomad, with it's sunlight readable screen was a much more pleasant experience! I appreciate all the drop down pick lists in CF because those have to be created in FW Mobile, which has been a long-time "wish list" improvement.

While I understand the desire for apps, the other thing that I notice is that for many of the apps out there they are single applications, then you have to switch to another app for a different function. It is too bad Microsoft was so slow to the tablet/phone game because FW Mobile was running on Windows based phones before apps ever became a topic of discussion. I do have some customers who are now running Mobile on Surface 8.2 tablets. I played with one this week and it works just fine. Getting accurate GPS into them is still a work in process.

In addition, Mobile can be used log all the field records, log points that can be returned to, soil testing, etc. Mobile is a superior package but it does take something other than an ipad to run.
