Been playing around with OBS Fusion, but of course it doesn't have the specialized Ford PID's.

 

Downloaded Forscan for Windows for the laptop and then noticed that they have a "Forscan Lite" version for the iPhone. Installed it on the iPad and it seems to work fairly well although it just runs in emulation mode, they say they will have a version optimized for the iPad in the future.

 

Was able to show things that I didn't have PID's that I could add to OBS Fusion such as Battery Energy to Empty, Oil life left, and TPMS readings (which I don't have in my winter tires but might be useful when I put the OEM tires back on).

Looks good.  Which ELM327 are you using it with?

I finally picked up an ELM327 and ForScan Lite for an Android I had lying around.

WOW ! There is a TON of data I can look at.

These units can interfere with the vehicles systems and cause MIL's  and Wrench Lamp issue's.

If you're referring to the MyFordMobile App.  I've use the app on both platforms, and they both work.  I think the iOS version might have a few more installation related glitches (solved by deleting and reinstalling), but for some reason the app seems to feel like it works a bit better on the iPhone.  Since the problem with go-times disappearing surfaced, I have avoided using the app on my android.  The go-times still disappear occasionally when I don't use it, but accessing the car through the android app seems to almost guarantee that my go times will disappear. If the phone has a big enough screen, I actually prefer to pull up the website on either device.
