Support Multiple resolution
Color Identifier uses the camera on your phone to speak the names of colors in real-time.
It's a new Augmented Reality app for discovering the names of the colors around you!
The color names are fun and specific: Paris Daisy, Lavender Rose, Moon Mist, and many more.
It can be a useful app for the blind and visually impaired, but I think it's fun for everyone.
It will also tell you the hex value of the color, so you can identify exactly what color the camera sees.
It's fast, easy, and fun! Try it today.
"Best App Ever" - JJ Sutherland, NPR
"How wonderful! This could also help me avoid arguments with my wife about what color something is. I have such a restricted color vocabulary." - Brumley Gap
Color Identifier will appear as "Color ID" on your home screen.
Color names are from Chirag Mehta, who used Wikipedia, Crayola, and Color-Name Dictionaries like Resene.

Not consistent. If you move it a little bit it gets a new color. Apparantly my wall has like 6 different colors in a 3 inch area.
Beside the hex value, would be nice to have rgb/cmyk conversions. Also would be useful identifying colors on previously taken photos. OK on moto defy.
Said that orange brown and white were same color... Basically useless...
Guess it could be really usefull to some, and really fun.
Force close on N1 cyanogen 6.1
This app is great. Two features missing, let me use the flash on my droid 2, and turn off the voice
When you take a picture it changes the color and the reading is inaccurate, but if it's live it is much better.
It forces close after so long and is worthless :/ uninstalled
Seems to dull the colour when you capture it, making the colour capture kinda useless. Three stars for the interface.
Poor controls, not intuitive. Also needs a silent mode that is easily accessible.
