iPhone Screenshots


Can your iPhone correct your color blindness?

"I used it today in the real world. It was amazing! I was at Target with my girlfriend and saw a blue plaid shirt that I liked. She asked me what color it was so I pulled up DanKam and said "purple." I actually could see the real color, through my iPhone! Thanks so much!"

"I am literally, almost in tears writing this, I CAN FRICKIN’ SEE PROPER COLORS!!!!"

"Thank you so much for this app. It’s like an early Christmas present! I, too, am a color blind Designer/Webmaster type with long-ago-dashed pilot dreams. I saw the story on Boing Boing, and immediately
downloaded the app. My rods and cones are high-fiving each other. I ran into the other room to show a fellow designer, who just happened to be wearing the same “I heart Color” t-shirt that you wore for the Forbes photo. How coincidental was that? Anyway, THANKS for the vision! Major kudos to you…"

"@waxpancake: Dan Kaminsky made an augmented-reality iPhone app for the
colorblind. And it *works*. http://bit.ly/gOJAn0"

Apparently so :)

DanKam is a iPhone app that displays video from the camera (among other sources), remixed so that it's a lot easier for the color blind to see colors, and the differences between colors, more accurately.

Top app

Didn't think this app would work, but using it on the ishihara test it has aloud me to see the numbers for the 1st ever time, for any one who is colour blind well worth the money


New version no good on IPad 3

Seems to crash on the iPad 3, when changing source. Can t see any colors reported.


Not Impressed

Didn't work for me. Cant see any real life use for this product for someone like me. I'm slightly red green colour blind.
