To have access to the full programming software, you could set up a PC with the programming software and use a remote desktop program to access the PC from your mobile device. For that to work, your PLCs would have to be networked in such a way that the PC has access to all of them.

Thanks Joe E I just tried the remote desktop and it works, you wouldn't wont to do any programming on it but it is ok for fault finding/troubleshooting while on site.

I'm glad it worked out for you. I've used a remote desktop app on my 8" tablet before, but it was to do something very simple in a simple program on a remote PC (hit the "record" button from another room). It worked, but I wouldn't want to do much more than that on such a small screen.
