"Projects" are created with Mobile Data Anywhere Designer and can then be uploaded to Mobile Data Anywhere and deployed to devices registered on your Mobile Data Anywhere account.
The Mobile Data Anywhere mobile applications run on Android, iPhone / iPad and Windows Mobile devices. Once a project has been received, data records ("sessions") are created and sent back to the Mobile Data Anywhere site where they can be exported and downloaded.
This tutorial describes what Mobile Data Anywhere can do, and how to use it to develop and run powerful business applications without the need for programming.
Android is an operating system for mobile devices and has been deployed to Smartphones, Tablets and Netbooks. The Android operating system has achieved remarkable growth because of it's open nature and adoption by many manufacturers of mobile devices. Examples of Android mobile devices are the HTC Desire (a Smartphone), the Samsung Galaxy Tab (a Tablet) and the Toshiba AC100 (a Netbook). An excellent converged mobile device, a Smartphone with a 5.3 inch screen, is the Samsung Galaxy Note .

Pocket PC is the term used to describe the touch screen, pocket-sized computers that run the Microsoft Windows Mobile (Windows Mobile 6.5, 6.1, 6, and 5) Pocket PC and Smartphone operating systems, and a cut-down version of Microsoft Office programs. Windows Mobile Pocket PCs are often deployed as 'ruggedised' devices for field use in mining, environmental programs and defence, examples are Trimble Nomad, Intermec and Motorola Symbol devices. Windows Mobile Smartphones evolved from Windows Pocket PCs, a contemporary example is the HTC HD2.
Software for mobile devices is usually developed in complex coding languages such as C++, Java, or VisualBasic. Generally, applications developed in these languages by skilled programmers must either be fairly general in their scope to cater for diversity of client requirements, or specifically customised at considerable cost.
For Smartphones, Tablets and Pocket PCs to achieve their potential, a versatile development and applicationsmedium was needed and Mobile Data Anywhere fills that need. Mobile Data Anywhere brings them together with a fully managed and hosted service saving the time and hassles, such as setting up networking infrastructure, static IP address or port forwarding.
