A RF data communications system for remotely collecting data and a method of developing applications for such a system are provided. The RF data communications system preferably has a first computer including at least a first microprocessor, a first screen display, and a first data screen file positioned representing a first predetermined screen display format. A first RF data transceiver is positioned in electrical communication with the first microprocessor of the first computer for transmitting and receiving RF data, and a second RF data transceiver is positioned remote from the first RF data transceiver and the first computer for transmitting RF data to and receiving RF data from the first RF data transceiver. A second computer is positioned in electrical communication with the second RF data transceiver and remote from the first computer. The second computer preferably is arranged for collecting data remote from the first computer and includes at least a data sensor, a second microprocessor, a second screen display, and a second data screen file representing a second predetermined screen display format. The second screen data file substantially corresponds to the first data screen file so that the second screen display format substantially corresponds to the first screen display format and so that modifications to the first data screen file are responsively made to the second data screen file and responsively displayed on the second screen display to a user thereof.
