Color ID Free
By GreenGar Studios
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
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.
What's New in Version 2.3
- Support 4-inches Retina display
- Localization in Spanish for simple color mode
- Known issue: there might be an issue with saving photo on iPad 3. Please let us know if you run into problems at ColorID@greengar.com
Good, but could have better options
Very helpful app, my girlfriend uses this as she has severe colour blindness and it is very useful. However I think it would a better feature to tap the screen to analyse a colour rather than it telling you every colour it sees
No use on iPhone 6
Very poor results on the iPhone 6. I tried this up on my previous iPhone and the results were better but it is absolutely no use on my current phone. Almost every colour is reported as shade of grey or blue. The idea is very good but the practicality is not.
I can finally prove everyone wrong on what colour something is! It's not purple it's amethyst smoke !
