Note: If you are using the above mentioned iPad app, the iUSBportCAMERA firmware will be updated to V32 automatically by the app. It is not necessary to follow the below steps unless the iPad app is not working properly.

3) New Safari/Chrome web app

The new Safari/Chrome web app is included in the above mentioned V32 firmware. This web app allows iUSBportCAMERA to be used with any device with a Safari/Chrome web browser (e.g. iPhone, Android, Mac, Windows)

Known limitations
- Remember to turn off live view when you are done as closing the web browser/app will not disengage the camera from live view.
- Touch focusing may not work with some Nikon cameras. We will fix this in the next version
- Older Android devices may be slow at running this web app due to limited processing power.

3.5) Web app will see the camera and a green button will light up. If the web app shows a red button, it means that another device is already connected to the camera.
