The new Tamron app can make adjustment to Tamron lens settings out in the field and follows on from the Tamron Lens Utility for computers that was released back in October 2021. It uses the Tamron USB-C Connection cable to hook an Android device up to a Tamron lens for configuration. 

The Tamron Lens Utility app was first announced back in August 2022, but it is now officially available on the Google Play Store. However, it is still under development.
