Use the iPhone or iPad camera to capture RGB values in real-time and convert them to the closest color name from a dictionary of nearly 900 colors. Also available: RYB, HSL and CMYK values, HTML color code, and the closest HTML color name. Touch a color square to view the information for that sample at any time.

Organize the sample collection on the Edit screen. After organizing your sample collection, email the color samples with color chips, with color chips and a selected photo, or as text only.

On the Options screen, set the sample aperture from 1x1 to 50x50 pixels, and select which color conversions to display.

Touch the "Target" selector then touch the screen to move the sample location without moving the device.

Ratings and Reviews

Simple. And it's saving my color samples now!? Even when I quit the app. Nice.

Good, but...

Accurate RGB measurement. Easy to use. But sending color swatch by email to MS Outlook does not transmit the color, while sending it to another iPhone does.

Suggestion: include option to turn on the LED flash so program can be independent of burnt light.

....Even Better Now

My previous review stands. Thank you developers for optimizing for the iPhone/iPod 5. (:
