Quick question on the relationship between GeoSCADA mobile and Virtual ViewX...
I have tested using the Virtual ViewX from an iPhone and found it to be super frustrating to the point of being unusable. When viewing a regular webpage from the iPhone you are able to zoom in the screen and move it around with ease, but the Virtual ViewX does not function like a webpage at all. If you zoom in with two fingers the text on the screen becomes blurry and unreadable. You can use a one finger zoom that actually zooms in the ViewX but you cant move the screen side to side.
From a computer Virtual ViewX looks and feels just like being in ViewX. This could be useful if you have two people needing access to the server at the same time.
If you have access to a Windows RDS installation in that same environment, it would be worth trying to use the Microsoft RDP application with the RemoteApp capability to 'present' ViewX onto the iPhone.
I've been using this with an iPad for a while now, and it works really quite well. I'm not sure that I'd want to be designing mimics on such a device, or even doing much object configuration. But for an operator interface, I think it's suitable.
Virtual ViewX is much more suited to larger screens. We are still developing the App, and it has recently been given more capability such as Method execution and Search. There's also simpler deployment for Administrators - users don't have to read out a long Device ID to register a device.
We are adding some UI shortcuts for Virtual ViewX, watch out for them in release notes for Geo SCADA 2019 and 2020.
