Mobile Color Perfection. Anywhere and Everywhere.
In our on-the-go, photography-filled world, mobile devices have become one of the most important ways for displaying and sharing our images, but their color accuracy is not perfect. What you see on your tablet (or phone) should match your laptop or desktop screen. With ColorTRUE, now it’s easy!
For professional and enthusiast color perfectionists alike, ColorTRUE delivers unrivaled mobile on-screen color accuracy and is incredibly easy and fast to use. As soon as you set a supported X-Rite calibration device on your screen, ColorTRUE begins its true magic delivering a custom profile in minutes! And ColorTRUE comes equipped with an incredible image viewer so you can confidently show your photos knowing they are color accurate.

•White Point Selection – for optimal tablet to desktop match, choose between D65, D50 and Native
Show your TRUE colors – no matter where you are!
Look for other ColorTRUE Aware Apps
Unlike your laptop or desktop operating system, iOS mobile apps do not have system wide color management capabilities. Therefore, each app must apply color profiles individually. For this reason, X-Rite has created the ColorTRUE Aware Partner Program. We are currently collaborating with other app developers to allow them to seamlessly access your ColorTRUE profile so any app can display colors accurately and consistently. ColorTRUE Aware apps will be color managed once you create a profile with ColorTRUE. Just look for the ColorTRUE Aware logo for compatibility.
So help us spread the word by telling your favorite app developers you want them to be ColorTRUE Aware! App Developers: Visit xritephoto.com/colortrueSDK to request our ColorTRUE Software Developers Kit (SDK).

Ratings and Reviews
Does not deserve the bad rap it gets in some of these reviews
What this app does that is wonderful, it preserves the shadow detail you work so hard to maintain in lightroom. It also preserves subtle colors and details that would disappear.
What I found so frustrating with the apple photo viewer was how it blocked up the shadows, added contrast and changed the subtleties of the photo, I would have to go back into Lightroom and change it till it looked good on my ipad pro which is my primary .
What I HATE is the menu bar that won’t go away in the gallery. This program is designed for perfectionists, yet they run the date and battery % thru the picture when in portrait mode. Its just a distraction in landscape mode. What are you thinking about???
Needs an update BADLY!
I had hoped this app would perhaps make a deal with Adobe and get its features incorporated into Adobe Lightroom mobile. They seemed to have an initiative of getting accurate color into other apps. But now it's currently October 8th, 2016 and it hasn't been updated since 2015. What happened X-Rite? Did you lose interest? It was a cool idea once. And now we have raw photo capture capability within iOS 10, we need accurate color more than ever!
Well here we are. I have calibrated my iPhone 6s+ with a Colormunki Display module but it doesn't work. Everything gets a horrible yellow cast when I use it now. Totally useless.
Please update, maybe partner with some popular editing apps like Adobe Lightroom, Enlight, Snapseed, or others. I would love to use this now that my phones camera can edit raw. But as long as it no longer is capable of doing what it intends to do, it only 1 star.
Don't bother with this app. The i1 Display Pro is the best in the business and is a must with desktop monitors, especially if your workflow spans multiple users and displays, but it's completely unnecessary on the iPad. Apple already does a superb job with factory calibration on the iOS displays. Check out some of the sites that do advanced testing on displays and you'll see the results are fantastic. Apple is nailing color accuracy.
Additionally, the iPad uses TrueTone technology which adapts the display color to match the ambient environmental lighting. I swear, once you've used it, it's so hard to go back to a display without it. You end up with much better, much more accurate color showing your images with the iPad's native calibration than you do with an i1 calibration. The i1 calibration looks much worse by comparison. I profiled it once then trashed the app.
In conversations with an X-rite rep he admitted as much, and called it a "marketing bullet point to match what Spyder was offering."
Oh, and to the guy switching to the surface for better color? LOL, good luck!
