Description

Color Identifier uses the camera on your iPhone or iPod touch to speak the names of colors in real-time. It's an Augmented Reality app for discovering the names of the colors around you!

The color names are fun and specific: Paris Daisy, Lavender Rose, Moon Mist, and many more. The app also supports Simple Colors. Tap the color square at the top left corner to toggle between Simple Colors and Exotic Colors.

It can be a useful app for the blind and visually impaired, but I think it's fun for everyone.

It will also tell you the hex value of the color, so you can identify exactly what color the camera sees.

It's fast, easy, and fun! Try it today.

"Best App Ever" - JJ Sutherland, NPR

"How wonderful! This could also help me avoid arguments with my wife about what color something is. I have such a restricted color vocabulary." - Brumley Gap

* You can also switch to Simple Colors mode by using the Action button in the toolbar at the bottom.

Color Identifier will appear as "Color ID" on your home screen.

Color names are from Chirag Mehta, who used Wikipedia, Crayola, and Color-Name Dictionaries like Resene.

This is an updated version of Color Identifier that includes simple color names. It uses new APIs introduced in iOS 4.

This app originated from the Project:Possibility SS12:USC 2010 event.

almost perfect

This is really useful for collecting pallets of natural colors, especially ones that fire our fancy, for remodeling, or art/graphic projects. I'm not sure what the exotic naming convention is, but it must have been fun with 16 million possible.
I'd give it a 5, but if it's possible, it's not intuitively obvious how to use this on an existing image, and there is one bugaboo that when using the camera, I find a color I like, then try to capture it, but it captures an adjacent pixel which is sometimes not even close.

Dream come true

I though of this app. I said "I wish there was an app that did this, this and this". Here it is!

The color is very touchy and the only feature I can think of this app needing is a history of the last few colors because when I get into exotic colors there are so many it's often difficult to get that same lighting of the most accurate.

Great app, only one suggestion

Worked amazingly, just wish there was a way to blend a larger area of colors in the view. As it is, it pinpoints like one pixel to sample, which is great for solid colors, but not so much for anything mottled or gradient
