    Creating a Mobile application with Spotfire is just as easy as creating any Spotfire Analysis. You create a set of visualizations and pages and save them to the Spotfire library, from there your can open the Analysis using a web browser on your mobile phone, or using the Spotfire iOS App available from the Apple App store or the Spotfire Android App at Google Play. The Android and Apple Apps lets you use common mobile style interactions with your analysis such as swiping right/left between pages and even double tapping on visualizations to temporarily maximize them and then restore to normal size again.

    Here is a short video describing the use of Spotfire KPI charts on a mobile phone. 

    Good practices for designing a Mobile Application with Spotfire

    When creating a Spotfire Analysis that should be used on mobile devices it is useful to keep some things in mind. This article provides some good practices to consider.

    Using the device's GPS to use your location in the analysis

    Using the Spotfire iOS App, Spotfire can use the geographical location from the device, for instance to filter to the closest data points.

    See the documentation here and here.

    Reading Barcodes and other machine readable codes

    The Spotfire iOS App also provides the capability to read machine readable codes such as barcodes, which can be used in your application for example to display details about whatever the barcode describes. Here is the documentation about how to use this capability. Here is a very simple example that demonstrates this capability.
