Question

Will the Mobile Content Server and anonymous access capabilities in the ArcGIS app for iOS and Android be available in the Explorer app?

Answer

Users who currently host their web maps on-premises using the Mobile Content Server are encouraged to use either a hybrid model with ArcGIS Online where their maps are hosted and their data is on-premises, or a fully on-premises solution with Portal for ArcGIS. Both of these options have a much better user experience, especially with respect to map authoring and sharing.

Explorer requires an organizational account in order access maps and data in an organization. Users who need to have their maps accessible by their customers anonymously are encouraged to share their maps via the web map templates in ArcGIS Online and Portal.
