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.

Not useful

I bought this to simply use my camera to measure color but the tools is so basic that it does no more that get the the raw color of the measured pixel on the ccd of your camera. ( I think it’s a tiny block of them, but you cannot change the measured sea, shape, etc...). Since it’s raw data for a tiny area and there is no way to get an average color of, say, a wall you’re trying to match paint for, this is not helpful at all. There is literally no processing to account for things like adjusting to lighting conditions or smoothing an area to get the mean color. Also, all photos just report as being a shade of “mint white” no matter what you provide. It’s crude as heck and not worth $0.99 let alone the $2.99 price tag. Oh yeah, Support doesn’t work. It just hangs so you can’t get you money back for this garbage.

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!
