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 :)
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
Great for help with colorblindness
I'm red-green colorblind and I wish I'd discovered this app earlier. It comes in handy when I'm shopping and need to figure out the color of something.
(I often mistake purple and blue)
I've tried other apps similar to this, but they always give strange names for colors that I don't understand like "Tapa" or "Sushi". This app has the ability to do that, but it can also give you a simpler definition like "Light Blue" or "Dark Red"
5 stars, hands down. Love it.
Greatness in progress
This is a great tool although it still needs improvements,
I see great potential with this tool,
The color identifier focuses on a crosshair section whereas it should focus on a wider area and gather the average color
I tried recommending this to a friend but its not available in the google play store
Love the app
Where can you find a database of these colors online? I want to be able to save colors and then find them somewhere else to buy my favorite colored clothes
