Running ODK Collect/Kobo Form on Netbooks?

Hi Guys,
I know ODK Collect & KoboCollect only work on Android devices but is there
a way to run it (or something similar) on netbooks, for example? Someone
just sent me an email asking if this is possible -- after seeing ODK in
action for the project I'm doing with 20 mobile devices. I guess their
logic is to run a longer survey on the netbooks. But netbooks don't have
touch screens and most of them either run Windows or Linux.

So, has anyone setup ODK Collect on a device that is NOT Android enabled?
Is this possible at all?
If not, how could one still use a netbook to submit forms to Aggregate?

Currently, there is no good way to do this. However, ODK Collect 2.0 will
be able to run in a standard browser. If you don't use the phone's camera
or audio (e.g., for barcode scanning, taking photos, etc.) or the GPS, then
it should work for you. This is a few weeks (or even a couple of months)
away from release.

Sarah, Gaetano...
Thanks for the speedy reply. I had forgotten about GPS, and those other
handy features that Android gives you access to when using ODK. :slight_smile: Well,
I've relayed the info.
Personally, I think Android tablets are going to be the BEST devices for
doing a wide range of forms via ODK Collect/KoboCollect. I'm looking
forward to day when you can use a stylus (like we can in Windows Mobile
going waaaay back) and entering text instead of having to use those
annoying virtual keyboards that slows me down. :slight_smile:

When THAT comes to Android and ODK implements it, all Hell's gonna break
lose -- in a good way. :slight_smile: The survey possibilities are ENDLESS. :slight_smile:

Sarah, thanks for the MakeUseOf link. Kool idea! I read the comments and
some users were complaining of no access to WIFI etc. I'll try it out when
I get some spare time though... :slight_smile:

For the record I wouldn't want to operationalize a hacked android OS on a
netbook - I just thought it was cool!

Good luck.

Hello,

Will this Collect 2.0 run in a browser under iOs/iPhone?

Thank you

It will still be predominantly tied to Android in order to get to all the
phone's hardware (e.g., camera, GPS, external sensor ports, etc.). But the
portion that would have to be re-written for iOS will be much smaller and
it would be great if someone in the community could pick that up.
