Great start. I'm colorblind and frequently need to identify wires by color. Two features would make this app work great for me: 1) identify the closest "simple" color (like from the Crayola '8' box, not the 64!). "Lonely Watermelon" et al don't work for my purposes. 2) Allow me to use a white object to set white balance so the read is more accurate. If this app worked reliably for this I would happily pay real money for it.

Great app, small, accurate and simple. Does the job without a fuss. Would help if a 1 second lag can be set. Also increase the font size of the color name. Then I'll give it 5 stars.

Bad identification Says yellow is pink and there is no black color it says black is purple

Great idea. Good execution. Similar most of the comments here, an option that will id to the nearest primary color wil be great. Another suggestion is to put a bit of lag time in the detection process, making it slow in churning out the colors so it's not too sensitive to the small movements when ur trying to focus on the object :-)
