Good, but needs some refinement

As a reference for color names, it’s great. I assume the names are correct-they seem to be. Are they taken from some standard?

The AR view needs work.

First, you need a cursor of some kind to indicate the spot being evaluated.

Second, I suggest you take an average of a group of pixels, like maybe 3x3, at least as an option. An irregular surface, illuminated at an angle will have some fine shadows which will result in adjacent pixels having different RGB values, even though they would be the same with head-on lighting.

Third, I suggest a freeze frame (without having to take a picture). Something similar to what some screen magnifiers do.

Fourth, need to be able to zoom in on a subject in a picture.

As things are now, the AR view is not very useful. Unless you have a rock steady grip, you have a constantly changing color name, and RGB values. The lack of a cursor makes a bad situation only worse.

Good luck!

Light Meter, DB meter, Color Name,I Shutdown

I love the ability to make in-app-purchases on my iPhone. The average purchases result in outstanding features and exquisite quality contained therein. When I made the 4 app bundle purchase I was profoundly flabbergasted . I was met with the lowest quality of very nearly any purchased apps I ever made. I will not miss the purchase price of $5 or $6 .
I will, however, always feel that I was in some measure duped and deceived. Kindly refund my money. It would be the conscionable and principled action to take. Thank you for your kindness in allowing me to express my thoughts on these matters.

A lifesaver for a colorblind filmmaker

I'm always having to charge batteries and on many of the chargers, the only indicator is a single light that goes from red to green. I have no green cones so can't distinguish the two, but now use this app daily to quickly tell when my batteries are charged.
