use either of both of iPad 2 iPad and iPhone and allows you to view all images

Tablet color can be attractive, but lacking in accuracy and consistency. The Datacolor SpyderGallery™ was designed to help photographers manage the color output on the iPad®display. This app provides an easy-to-use program to calibrate the display and assure that colors are consistent throughout the entire workflow process. Just download the free app from the iTunes iOS App Store® and follow the simple instructions to download SpyderGallery™ to your desktop and iPad®.

Datacolor is the first to provide a complete calibration solution to improve the color on your iPad® device. Use your Spyder3 product to calibrate the iPad®, and SpyderGallery™ to view your images using your custom iPad® color profile. Then relax – you now have consistent color throughout your entire photo gallery!

A Spyder3™ colorimeter is required to use the calibration component of SpyderGallery™. If you do not already have access to a Spyder™ click here.
