Good app

This is a very good app except for one thing sometimes the lighting is weird and you get a different color then way it looks in real life if you’re using this app for a something important scan multiple times

Colors are inaccurate.

Here are some mistakes: Pure red is called “Deep orange”, pure green is called “Light green”, and pure blue is called “Indigo”. What should be Orange is called Amber, what should be spring green is called Teal, real teal that leans slightly towards blue is called Cyan, magenta is called Purple, tan is called orange, some shades of gray (around #E8E8E8) are called brown, dark yellow is called brown, lime, or light green, maroon is called pink or brown, dark purple is called brown, light cyan is called teal, very light cyan is called light blue, different shades of dark amber are sometimes called red or lime, salmon is called deep orange, in other words many of the colors are named inaccurately.

The only two of the 6 main computer monitor colors (red yellow green cyan blue magenta) that says the right thing are Yellow and Cyan.)

Thanks from a color blind

My whole life I’ve struggled to identify colors due to my colorblindness. I probably should’ve looked for something like this before or written it myself (I’ve been an iPhone user since its first generation), but in any case, when I searched, this app showed up first and does EXACTLY what I wanted and need: tell me what color something is. Plain and simple. Thanks for having a free version of this app. Thanks for helping mitigate a lifetime problem.
