"What Color Is This" is a color discovery tool. Easily find the name of a color by taking a photo or analyzing an existing one. You can display name matches and similar colors from popular color databases like Crayola or Pantone.

Current libraries: Crayola, Pantone, Pantone Coated, Faber-Castell, Behr, Sherwin Williams

I will continue to implement new features in the future. Please leave a comment or a suggestion for what you'd like to see!

In the ballpark, much potential

I like this app for what it is trying to do, and I find it gets in the ballpark but is not spot on. I think the device camera, lighting (color temperature of bulbs) and display (true tone or not) are variables that must be just right in order to get close to the color being captured, or approximated.

I did purchase the extended color sets, which are nice to have.

One suggestion I have is for the Search / color picker mode: provide an option to change the background color from white to black (or also grey)... when color matching to a real world sample using a light emitting screen, white light can visually bias the comparison.

No no no

Never buy this app. I read the reviews and assumed they would be wrong until I got it. First of all I got it to see what color my scrunchie was but when I scanned it assuming for a color like gold or tan I got RED😡 I went into natural lighting to see if that would effect the color but no it just said green that time.👿👿😠 then I scanned a piece of paper because how could it mess that up and it did😠😡. It said brown. If you don’t listen to me and get this app then be prepared for it to be wrong and in order to get “better” results you must pay 2$😠🆗sorry😯😕
