New products since ArcGIS 10.0
The new ArcGIS app
- ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Android (previously known as ArcGIS API for Android)
- ArcGIS Runtime SDK for iOS (previously known as ArcGIS API for iOS)
- ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Windows Phone (previously ArcGIS API for Windows Phone)
- ArcGIS Runtime SDKs for WPF (for Windows) and Java (for Windows and Linux), first release in beta at time of publication, allow you to bring ArcGIS capabilities to small-footprint, focused applications you build.
