Questions about ODK Tables

Hi All!

I want to use ODK collect within my Application for data Collection. What I
mean by that, is the user will do something within my app, and ODK Collect
should open up with the appropriate form.

I searched in this group, and found a few posts saying that I should look
at ODK Tables, since it has similar functionality.

I have downloaded the source code for ODK Tables, and managed to compile it
and deploy it on my phone. However I haven't managed to yet figure out how
to actually use the app. I am not even sure what all it can do.

Is there some document detailing the various features of the application?
Is there anywhere where I can read up on what all it can do?

Regards,
Devdatta

As stated on the website, Tables in the unreleased project section:

"Unreleased Projects

No support is provided for these projects. They are unstable works in
progress and are actively being developed by the core team and other

Hi,

I had to do something similar for a project that I was working on late
last year.

This blog post covers how we're currently launching ODK Collect from
our app to complete a survey.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Corey!
That is exactly what I ended up doing.
As a further question, Do you install both your application, and ODK
Collect on the device?

Or have you converted the ODK Collect application to a library, and use the
Library in your Application?
