Color Identifier uses the camera on your iPhone or iPod touch to speak the names of colors in real-time.
It's a new 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.
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.
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.
The next update will include simple color names to make the results easier to understand :)

Useful and well-designed colour app
There are about 60 of these apps on the App Store. This one is my favourite. It's stable, well-coded, has a large colour library (and allows switching between complex and simple colour names), and unlike pretty much every other app I've tried, it waits a bit to get a "lock" before reading the colour name. Five stars.
