Misleading Advertising

I was directed to the ESRI site from a county assessor website saying you can use this app in order to view their maps. No where on either site did it explain you needed an ESRI business account to use this app. What both sites did say was that it was FREE. What they should have said was that it is free IF you have a very expensive corporate account from ESRI. Now i am forced to search the open source options. Adobe has done the same thing. Almost all of the software is based upon subscriptions now. If the advertising had been straightforward, it would have saved me considerable time and effort.

Don’t download - it’s a Bait & Switch!

Unless you have an existing corporate account with ESRI, don’t waste your time downloading Explorer because it is not “free” as advertised. Please consider the open-source and absolutely free GIS tool “QGIS" which is used by over 100,000 people globally. QGIS works across all platforms, (Unix, OS X and PC), at no cost to users. Robust installation and user’s guides and support a large variety of popular imaging formats. Disclaimer: I do not work for a GIS software development company, just a happy QGIS user who was curious about Explorer until I discovered their unscrupulous bait and switch marketing tactics first hand - ouch!

Misleading. Personal accounts NOT supported.

The US Census Bureau directed me to the web page for the "free" ArcGIS Explorer app (this one). Search for "esri arcgis explorer" and you'll find the corresponding web page. I was then faced with a login ... so I created an account. Only AFTER that, upon trying to login to use this app, was I informed that "personal accounts are not supported." Very disappointed. I could "sign up for a 60 day free trial" but now I feel strung along.
