New Two-Column Tablet View

We’re very pleased to announce a new version of Magpi Plus that lets you take better advantage of large-screen mobile data collection devices like tablets. We’ve known for quite a while that more and more of our users are utilizing tablets for data collection, and they have made it clear that they want to make the best use of all that “screen real estate”.

The existing Magpi Plus app, like most mobile data collection apps, uses a single column view. With the new version, that will still be the case on phones, but on tablets you’ll see a view like the one below: labels will span the screen, but other questions will be displayed in two columns. Questions will be displayed Left-to-Right, and Top-to-Bottom.

We’re currently testing, but hope to release this new version very soon!
