Does anyone out there use an Ipad for work. If so how do you use it, and what is your feelings about it???

Is there any software you would recommend or feel we could do with getting like RSS/UDL applications etc.,

I see a few sales people using them to show picture of their kit but thats as far as it goes Apple are hard work when it comes to trying to get your apps accepted. I am still waiting for our CCTV app to be accepted

I've used my iPad for rrs but had to remote login into the host pc at the office for it .

Actually worked quite well.

Looking at getting a windows tablet and using GRS and rrs etc on that.

We use iPhones as company devices , MASWEB mobile is really handy for maint an commissions .

Saves loads of time instead of ringing the arc and then having to invert digi outputs etc .

Just wish galaxy did an UDL app

I thought everyone would be using there phones for remote access to the ARC by now?

We limit what can be done via phone but we can put on test, check history, reset if we wanted to etc. I can't remember the last time I called the control room.

We use southern and can put jobs on test , check signals and check key holders using the iPhone app.

Can't change anything from it tho . It's a bit of a pain having to ring up to change a key holder.

It can be done using the normal MASWEB desktop site in safari tho .

I dont. I suppose it depends on your ARC. Im supposing only those using mas can do this?

No EMCS use Sentinal or whatever its called. Its not an app, just a mobile web/wap page.

No chance I would change key holders like that, email, post or client ARC login.
