Figure 5 in this blog prompted me to look at Crystal Reports on the iPad

Mobile 4.4 will allow you to access Crystal in a more interactive form

It offers drill through charts, sections, and external links

You can interact with the reports

First, how do you know it is a Crystal Report?  Clicking the “i” icon on the report will tell you it is Crystal:

The “type” above says it is a Crystal Report

Now I will try some “drilldown” features with Crystal Reports:

First, I select USA

Notice at the bottom of the screen it reflects “Drilldown > USA”

I could also take advantage of the Group Tree option.

It is nice to see BI Mobile take advantage of Crystal Reports features and without any redesign of the reports.

Note this was using BI BusinessObjects Mobile version 4.4
