QGIS was never meant to be a convenient field data entry tool and QGIS for mobile was meant to fill the gap however as of December 2014 the project has been refocused to create a touch optimised interface aimed at field work using the QGIS libraries.
'QField' aims to take your pre-prepared QGIS project out into the field and maintain QGIS styling. Some of the promised tools include:-
- More GPS centric editing.
- Desktop compatibility.
- Project preparation on QGIS Desktop.
- Simple interface with just a couple of buttons.
- Switchable use paradigm
