What's New in Version 1.1
Version 1.1 fixes a bug that prevented the Info tab from displaying correctly on the iPhone 3GS. As a result of this bug fix, HueVue now requires iPhone OS 3.0 or better.
In addition there are a couple of minor usability fixes:
- colors list now shows the parent tag in the nav bar
- a popup prompts users to add colors if the list is empty
Partially color blind
This is the most amazing app ever! I have partial color blindness. Any one that suffers with being colorblind can understand how frustrating it can be. With this app, you can identify colors accurately. Thank you for inventing this app. I've been waiting for a tool like this my whole life!
Since my girlfriend and I broke up I can't even match my ties or pick out my favorite jelly beans. People don't understand this ailment and think we exaggerate.
I am very grateful for the Simplicity of this app. I wish I would've had this crutch years ago. Thank you!
16% of males have some degree of color blindness.
I'm grateful but wish I had this years ago, before turning 70. Males receive color confusion from mothers. A gene pasted by fathers to daughters, who aren't color blind, pass it to their sons who are. It's a sex linked trait.
