I have an application in the espace which do all the managing stuff (view add edit records). I also want to create an mobile application that strictly for view only. I tried adding the application as reference to my mobile project, however, I wasn't able to reference the application's Entity which has all the data, instead I can only MenuItem2 (which is useless) 

So how about am I doing this?

Hi David,

Did you set the Entity Property "Public" to Yes on the producer eSpace?
You'll have to do that and republish the producer eSpace. After that the entity should be "referable" on the mobile/consumer eSpace.
