Great But would be nice if there was way to save the colors you snapped with the info for later reference like as a photo.

No good. The colour decided upon varied with distance from the (wall). I got five different colours depending on distance.

Great colorimeter! I am deuteranomalous, and although after years and years I've finally learned the ability to doubt myself with regard to greens - but with this app, my confidence is back :D -- suggestion: exposure compensation! If you have a big dark object filling the screen, it becomes mid-grey. This should be easy to implement. Suggestion#2: white balance calibration! Maybe there's an open-source script somewhere --it would make your app the very best available. Thank you! A++++!
