There are three mobile applications that I'm aware of. There are in depth descriptions available at their website and at the app store but for now, I'll focus on the "ArcGIS" application.
The "ArcGIS" application is a great bridge from data stored in the GIS space to the physical site. The application has a "find me" button, a search function for other ArcGIS online maps, measuring tools and a search within the current map function.

Searching for other ArcGIS online maps is shown at the top right.
Measuring distances and areas is available through map tools shown as a wrench.
Searching for data on the current map is shown at the top left.
Once users find their desired area, any symbol that contains data can be selected by a quick tap or tap and hold for a magnifying glass.
Quick data will display in a pop up text box. Additional information can be accessed by tapping on the " > " symbol in the text box.
Mobile Website Access:
As an alternative to the app, users can access the ArcGIS Online website directly at https://www.arcgis.com/home/. Once users find the map they're interested in, the map acts very much like the mobile app version with much of the same functionality.

Whether users access the information via the app or the mobile version of the website, it is a very powerful tool that is essentially free.
