+ColorMunki Photo support with ColorTRUE

The initial release of ColorTRUE mobile profiling app did not support the ColorMunki Photo hardware (as well as some other hardware). We have released an update for the iOS version (ColorTRUE 1.0.4) that has added support for ColorMunki Photo, ColorMunki Design, and i1Studio measurement devices on Apple mobile devices only.  These devices are not supported on the Android version of ColorTRUE. The reason that we are limited in our ability to support this hardware on the Android platform is two fold:

  1. The Android version of the app relies on the phone or tablet for power. As a result only very low power consumption devices may be used,

  2. The only devices that can connect to Android hardware are devices that are known as Human Interface Devices, or HID for short, HID devices do not require a driver to connect to or interact with a computer or mobile device. Things like mice, keyboards, the ColorMunki Display, and the i1Display Pro meet this criteria. Hardware which has the ability to perform advanced functions need a driver to work correctly. The Android platform does not support the ability to use drivers.
