At Tableau, we’re passionate about the possibilities that mobile technology enables, and its power to revolutionize the way we stay connected to and interact with data. Our vision for Tableau Mobile is to be the fastest, easiest, and most delightful way to stay on top of your data, no matter where you are.
We’re excited to share we’re releasing a brand new version of our Tableau Mobile app as part of Tableau 9.1. Make no mistake, this is not your typical dot-update release as the version number suggests. We’ve completely redesigned the app from the ground up to be faster, more convenient, and more streamlined. In addition to the app’s existing capabilities, the new release includes several key improvements:
Responsiveness: Everything about the new app is faster. This includes searching for the views or dashboards that matter to you to viewing and interacting with your content, to answering your questions.
Experience enhancements: We’ve improved all the seemingly little things that add up and slow you down. With the new app, your data is the star of the experience; the user interface gets out of the way. Quickly page through your favorite vizzes with a swipe. Tap once to go full-screen. Switch between Tableau Server sites with a couple of taps. Favorite (and unfavorite) content with a tap. Connect to recently-visited Tableau servers with a tap—the list goes on and on!
Offline snapshots: The app now provides offline access to high-resolution images of your favorite views and dashboards. Snapshots will be available even when you’re not connected to a network. So whether you’re in between meetings at work or in between stops out on the road, snapshots of your favorite vizzes are always at the ready.

The new app will first be available on the iOS platform via the Tableau Mobile iTunes Store page around the time of the Tableau 9.1 launch. The Android version of the app will be available at a future date. The existing Tableau Mobile app for Android will continue to be made available until that time.
