The ICC Examin App is completely rewritten in Qt/QML. QML is a declarative language, making it easy to define GUI elements and write layouts with fewer code. In recent years the Qt project extended support from desktop platforms to mobiles like Nokias Meego, Sailfish OS, iOS, Android, embedded devices and more. ICC Examin is available as a paid app in the Google Play Store. Sources are currently closed in order to financially support further development. This ICC Examin version continues to use Oyranos CMS. New is the dependency to RefIccMAX for parsing ICC Profile binaries. In the process both the RefIccMAX library and the Oyranos Color Management System obtained changes and fixes in git for cross compilation with Android libraries. Those changes will be in the next respective releases.

The FLTK Toolkit, as used in previous versions, was not ported to the Android or other mobile platforms. Thus a complete rewrite was unavoidable. The old FLTK based version is still maintained by the same author.
