One of our service providers is considering purchasing Mac tablets and was wondering if Smart Client is currently working ok on the Mac environment.
I recall speaking with one of the developers a year or so ago about this and there were limitations, but perhaps since the upgrade that is no longer the case.
Is this still the case with GMSC2015? Are there any issues to be aware of if it does work?

1. Printing does not work as GMSC 2015/2016 is not able to determine the printers DPI which results in a wrong print out
2. GMSC 2015/2016 No GPS support since the third-party library only supports windows.
3. GMSC 2015 ECW does not work. In version 2016 ECW is viable with the addition of GDAL into the products but only limited testing has been completed.
This information can also be found at here.

Thanks for this information Marc,
I'll let the service provider know.
They do use GPS and we have ECW images so I would recommend not purchasing Macs for this reason.

Just to clarify, does GPS not work even with an external device?
Also, our aerials are ECW but have been tiled as JPG/features output type is Jpeg.
Will it still not work if we are using the published tiles?

there is no difference between an internal or external device. Both will not work.
In that case the GMSC servers must be able to read an ECW so that it can produce a JPG tile. That means
Client/ECWP- Mac issue:
Marc was talking about the client-side ECWP integration. In that case the java client consumes an ECWP/IWS service.

Smart Client isn't compatible with iOS.
In addition please note that GMSC 2018's Linux and Mac support is considered viable. However, these operating systems will no longer be supported in subsequent releases.
Therefore we recommend to use any Microsoft operating system which is certified for
