Color Screen is a beautiful iOS app that provides an excellent solution for lighting macro photography scenes. It provides a wide range of colors to choose from.

Once you find a color that you like, turn up the brigtness and let the iOS device screen light up your scene.

When you find the colors that work perfectly, add them to favorites for one-tap setup in future for consitent lighting across sessions. You can also see the hex values and RGB values of the colors to transfer them easily to other editing softwares.

There are minimal controls on the main color screen. The app also allows to hide almost all interaction elements from the screen. This, along with the absence of ad banners provides the purest colors.

Color screen allows you to save your favorite colors for the light screen and allows one tap set up to that color. This allows for consistently-lit scenes across shots and setups.

There are no ad banners to interfere with the purity of the colors. Color Screen is completely free to use. No ads, no in-app purchases.

Pretty cool


I just downloaded this, haven't learned how to use it yet. I'm sure that once I get used to the app I will love it.

Great app if you need all colors of the rainbow. Of course rainbows don't have white and I can't find a way to have a simple white light panel. Easy to use though. Maybe I'm missing something 'cause not sure what the developer was thinking. Can't use as is.

There is way to change the brightness and saturation now. So this should allow you to get pure white and pure black. Please give it a try and let us know what you think. If you find it useful, please consider changing your rating.


Colors. No fluff. No ads.


I want a red light for stargazing and referring to my Stars book. Fits the bill
