apresher, it seems that IOS platforms are most often on TV commercials for the consumer segment, while Android is gaining traction amongst the technical folks behind the scene.

@apresher: I think the battle between iOS and Android is keeping everyone on its toes. It's a good thing anyway since the competition is done in a spirit where the users can benefit the latest technologies from both parties. Just a matter of time on who will do it first.

mrdon, Not sure what their plans are but I would be surprised if an Android app isn't on the horizon.  It's clear that those two platforms will be battling for the near term, and the user base for both is huge.

Charles, Thanks for the comment. It seems alot of companies are using the iOS as the defacto standard when developing apps instead of the Android OS. I've also been reading quite a few tweets from Entrepreneur magazine the tides made been changing as Android devices are becoming more prevalent in the business world compare to the iPhone or iPad products. Very interesting times in tech!

Good question, mrdon. It truly is amazing that such production data can be accessed through a mobile app. I'm sure the Android app is waiting in the wings.

Al, It's amazing how mobile devices are finding applications within the Industrial sector. The Smart Factory is definitely alive and well. Will an Android app be available for smartphones and tablets?
