Thank you!!!

I’ve been searching forever for a mobile equivalent of the PC app WhatColor, and I finally found it! This is exactly what I’ve been wanting - the ability to point at anything in the ”real world” - not just on my computer screen - and understand what color it is! Great app, easy to use and understand. A few suggestions for nice-to-have improvements for future updates:
- allow user to adjust the size of the target for discerning colors in smaller areas (e.g. lines on a graph)
- provide RGB in either decimal or hexadecimal
- Would there be any way to have this running in background so I would be able to identify colors on web pages or on PDFs? As I understand it, the only way I could do this now would be to take a screen shot then analyze the photo.

Thanks again!

You beat me to it! BRAVO!!

Being colorblind my self I was attempting to build this app for my own use. This works great. I tested it with my friends who have color vision and this is spot on. Well done. I plan to tout this app on my MySpace, Facebook and Twitter accounts. This app solves my biggest problem, clothes shopping!!
I commend you on this most useful of iPhone applications. *standing applause*
