Ratings and Reviews
I’ve heard that this is a great app to use in the collection of GIS data. However, I’m not impressed. The location accuracy is no better than 16.2 feet. I know Esri can do better than that.
Very easy to create a mobile data collection app with mapping built in.
These low star reviews are often complaining about things unrelated to the purpose of the app. GPS accuracy, come on, that's not a function of the app but of the GPS data stream's source. You think an iOS device by itself is survey grade?
Unreal what some folks complain about. Write a collection app from scratch then come back and try Collector.

Thanks for the very positive feedback and glad to hear your are successful with Collector! We strive to make field work more accurate and efficient for everyone. Have a big update coming and hopefully we can turn some of these frowns upside down :).
Always an issue, not reliable
ESRI makes amazing software for the desktop, but fails at its iOS apps. Every time I go to collect data in the field something always goes wrong. Stops recording GPS location and then “jumps” leaving a nice straight line, now I cannot sync my field data due to bad credentials (I am logged in with the app and now it won’t sync my work), and not to mention the inability to add point features while I am streaming a polyline.
I am giving up on the collector app and will be using other mapping apps for data collection. Days worth of work now stuck in limbo due to some issues with this app. Worthless.
