Color Inspector is designed to help colorblind and other vision impaired people differentiate and identify difficult colors by evaluating live video to describe the color in view. With options like zoom, varying sample sizes, and torch settings*, it's easy to make sure you've got the right name for the right color.

Color Inspector features full VoiceOver support for its live color processing.


Please note that metallic and other shiny surfaces can easily take on the colors of the objects reflected in them and of the light around them. If you find colors that you believe were misidentified, please feel free to submit them as described in the application.


*Not all functionality is available on all devices.

Lumatek ,


This color identifier is easy to use. It's color categories are very broad, which are a blessing and a curse. On the plus side, the results are very reproducible (so you won't observe 50 shades of gray on a single chair). On the minus side, the program seems overly liberal with it's naming of "brown" colors. This app needs a few extra color classes for brown-orange colors, but otherwise good.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the excellent feedback. I'll take a look at sampling some additional brown-like colors and improve the differentiation. If you have specific samples that you think would be particularly illustrative, please feel free to send them to my support email - (support@colorinspector.com)

Thank for making this!

This is the most simplest color identifier app I have used I just love it. It doesn’t have thousands of shades of color which I think is useless anyway . I always had a difficulty in identifying colors and plus I am color blind so this app is of huge help. Even though it’s 3 years old it works flawlessly. Just one request please don’t remove it from the App Store else I’ll be doomed. Thank you so much :)

I want to give this app a 1 star review

This app is terrible because it made me loose a bet with my wife as to the color of her dress. But as for the color matching it’s does a pretty good job great concept.
