I'm looking for examples of mobile applications, preferably for iOS and Android operating systems, for use in industrial settings, as opposed to consumer applications. I'm especially interested in tablet applications, but would love to see smartphone examples as well. Apps used for realtime geographical tracking, data logging, workflow, job tasking, and inventory tracking are the types of things I'm interested in. Tools for military, law enforcement, and emergency services would also help.

It's harder to find good information about these types of applications than grocery lists and Angry Birds. Any references would be appreciated. If you have worked on one and can share anything, I'll be surprised, but delighted.

i've been getting Field Technologies magazine (http://www.fieldtechnologiesonline.com/ ) and they usually have a mobile-focused article every couple of issues. If you have time to research, they have what you are looking for. Judging from the articles in the magazine, the iOS and Android are not as widespread as the Windows-Mobile platform. My guess is the mobile software is part of the server package, and thus they write software in one programming language.

Well, iBuildApp announced a new Android app creator called Android Builder. The tool simplifies creating an iPhone and Android apps for smartphones. You can try that one but be careful because there is mobile security threat. Somewhere along the line, individuals assumed their private information is protected. I've learned that mobile applications place sensitive, unencrypted info in a basic text file on your mobile device. These files could be easy pickings for the dishonest hackers of the world. I found this here: Study: Major mobile apps compromise your personal data, newstype.com.
