This is a final guide illustrating how Chameleon can be integrated with iOS & Android applications. ( It's also useful if your device as a damaged or unresponsive screen)

Any network ,latency or security issues are unrelated to Chameleon.

USB connection via Android

A menu will appear if an Android device is connected to a pc via usb cable.

This phone appears as Midi Function when connected to a pc . This id & Chameleon should be visible & active in the pc software's midi ports.

Checklist.

The usb midi option should be accessible on any Android device released after 2015

The Android application should have usb midi capabilities .. Some usb cables can only charge they can not transfer files or data.
