[update 3/28/2012] Now available in the Amazon Appstore

The ArcGIS Android app has bee available as a beta version from the ESRI developers resource center for about a year, but there has been Iphone and Windows Mobile versions available for some time now.
On Monday  (Octobe 25, 2011) Android finally revived an official version. From my initial thoughts, it seems to very similar to the Windows mobile platform.  Some of the features, as state in the Android market are:

– Navigate map galleries in just a few taps
– Use maps authored in ArcGIS.com
– Access your own GIS data
– Display and zoom to current location
– Data Collection and Editing
* Use your GPS or the map to collect and update GIS data
* Attach photos and movies to what you collect
* Intelligent form-based data entry driven by ArcGIS data models
* Includes a set of hosted industry specific collection sample maps so you can test drive these capabilities. Look for them inside of the new Gallery entry on the Find Maps tab.
– Magnify your Identify and Editing experience
* When interacting with the map, tap and hold to accurately locate a position on the map using a Magnifier
– Perform linear and area measurements based on your current location or by interacting with the map.
– Retrieve detailed map metadata
– View feature attribute information
– Perform keyword search and get access to relevant information
– Change the visibility of layers
– Access popular maps faster by adding them to your favorites list
