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. In ColorAssist Lite, the in-app purchase option allows you to upgrade the app to email 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.

Very good. Needs aperture and exposure

Very good. Tells colors and codes.
To be excellent it needs an aperture to reduce the jitter in the colors described.
It especially needs an exposure to reduce the analyzed light since my attempt to get any colors from a computer screen just washed out to white.

Nice update!

Thanks! Love that I don't loose all my colors when I quit the app. The simple color name works pretty well too.

Fine as far as it goes, but it only picks up colors from the camera. If it can’t pick colors from existing images, it’s not all that useful to me.
