Great App for Colorblind

I’m a color-challenged person, and I’m always at a disadvantage while shopping or trying to pick things up for the wife and kids. This app allows me to quickly see if I’m picking up something pink that I thought was gray, or lavender when I thought it was light blue. The app quickly changes colors as you scan with your camera, and it’s cool to see how many shades there really are! One suggested improvement: allow access to the iPhone flashlight. Is the flashlight dimmable? Because accurate color is only as good as the available lighting, having access to the flashlight would maximize the accuracy of the color checker.

Thank you for your support! Will add such a feature with upcoming update.

Only supports one device per purchase

While this app is pretty sophisticated as far as identifying color is concerned, I was very disappointed to find that when I purchased it on my iPhone, I was asked to purchase it again on my iPad. There is nowhere to “restore purchases” on my iPad. Also, the iPad version does not rotate so your are stuck using it in vertical mode which seems really odd to me given how mature this app is and the fact that so many people use their iPad in landscape mode these days. The other glaring function that’s missing is the ability to zoom in. This is basically a deal breaker for me. In order to identify smaller patches of color accurately, I have to make a copy of the image in another app and crop into the area where I want to check the color. I contacted the developer a few days ago about all this (especially about the limitation of devices with my purchase) but they have not responded. Overall, I’m very disappointed.

EDIT: I’m reducing my review by another star because the developer has been completely unresponsive to my emails.

Sam from Ma. Luv luv this app.

Great app for studying varying colors, coupling colors. Those who need names to any color here is your color dictionary. Just put any picture in and the app does rest to give you the exact name of a color. Perhaps it’s a bedroom wall you want to paint and given the name through this app take the name or photo swatch of that color to the paint store where they can mix up an exact paint batch. Want to know what was the color on some celebrities dress enter a photo of the celebrity with dress and voile the name of that color appears. A ton of ideas if you put your mind to it.

I really appreciate your positive and detailed review and thank you for sharing it with myself and the community. 😊
I'm glad you found Color Name AR intuitive and useful and that it continues to be a tool you use regularly to identify any colors you need to.
Wish you all the best!
