Now that the Obdlink MX+ is supported with MS-CAN, is it possible to implement the support for the PLX Kiwi3 with MS-CAN as well?
We are sorry to disappoint you, but the problem is that PLX Kiwi 3 doesn't really support MS-CAN. Initially, they mentioned MS-CAN support somewhere in their promo or sale documents. When we and Kiwi 3 users started to ask their support about MS-CAN, they removed this mention. It is not a problem for us to add MS-CAN support, but it doesn't make sense for adapters that do not support it on their level.

Is it possible to support the Android version?
This task is in development plan but with lower priority, as we believe very few people that use FORScan for Android have Kiwi. Priority of tasks directly depends on their demand. Our resources are very limited and we cannot spend it to tasks that are demanded by several users while we have in development queue features expected by thousands of users. Kiwi 3 is quite specific solution. Yes, it is good quality adapter, but its only real adavantage is that it can be used in iOS. It is not too fast (because of the nature of BLE interface that is not designed for a high performance), it is too expensive and it doesn't support MS-CAN. So this adapter is good option for iOS but not for other platforms.
