Full disclosure, I used a color code app with my camera...I pointed it at my bed frame.
Edit: The app is called Color Grab on Android.
This app (<code>Color Grab (color detection)</code>) looks to be much better and be free. From the third screenshot, it appears it tells you the specific/special name for the colour, what basic colours it is between, and multiple computer encodings of the colour.
I found an Android app that might help. It sounds like it can take a color your phone's camera sees and tell you what it's called
Maybe next time you can tell your boss that you know for sure what color it is
Hey, do you think you could use a smartphone app to help you? There's an app called Color Grab (for Android, not sure if there's anything for Apple/Windows). You point your phone's camera at something and it tells you what the color is (It gives you it's best guess at the name of the color, the HEX code for it and the HSV). If you are unsure of what the color of something is, you could just pull out your phone and use it to check. It doesn't require you to take a picture (it looks at the live feed from your camera) so you might be able to use it to check the change in color of something (like in titration).
Here's the link for Color Grab, it's free. There might be other apps for this too.
Unfortunately cameras aren't the best way to pick colors because color shades can easily change depending upon the lighting and shadows and even angles. So this won't be much accurate.
However there is a few apps which might be close enough to do this:
> You can also still see different shades of the color, just not all of them.
It's basically like having lower-precision color vision. For me, colors next to or near each other on the spectrum look like similar shades of each other. Lime green / yellow, blue / purple, red / brown, etc.
If you have an Android phone, do yourself a favor and download Color Grab. It's super helpful for when you're unsure about the colors of things.

I'm not entirely sure I understand what kind of app you need, but if the problem is your colorblindness and not being able to recognize colors correctly, then this app for android can maybe help you? Or this one for iOS.
For the artists around they may find this usefull [maybe even web designers]
i feel like that is a nice little free ad-less gem
basicly point your camera at something and it gives you a color name, a name like you would see on a crayola crayon, a hex and HSV Value and you can save colors by clickin on them.
im not an artist by any means but this i feel is a pretty neat little tool that may count as a hidden gem
I have no idea how well this works, but I guess it's worth a shot:
(Yes, it's an Android app, so you'll need an Android phone or tablet)
Not OP, but I have been doing this for a while and with a lot of trial and error (accuracy, ease of use, very detailed, etc.) Color Grab is my favourite now. It does take a little bit to become familiar with it's functions, but once you do, it offers amazingly precise results that you can also play around with and adjust as much as you wish. I definitely recommend checking it out as well as taking the time learn how to use it, which only takes seconds once you do.
I use the Color Grab app for this. This one is particularly good because it has a custom white balance option. No phone or camera will give you the right color without a white reference to compare to that's also under the same lighting conditions as your color subject.
There's loads of apps out there that can help with colour detection, something like this might be handy for you to have on your phone if you're ever stuck with a similar problem
Somewhat unrelated, but as a fellow colorblind person, this app has helped me immensely in terms of determining the colors I am looking act.
so the best advice I found for getting the exact color: if you have android use Color Grab or if you have iOS use Pixel Picker. They’re apps that grab color information from photos, and from those you can hopefully try to more easily find colors that match according to the RGB numbers or the hexcode.
It isn't exactly what you are asking for but I frequently used this Andoid App which tells you the color your camera is aiming on
Here's an app I've been using for years to find exact colors of things I come across. I have various lights throughout my room including a black light and a remote-controlled color-changing bulb. I'm sort of already obsessed! I just lack the education.
> Asking employers what color something is. I think they get annoyed after answering the same question 10 times for only shopping t shirts.
You NEED this app
Overall this monitor is calibrated really well out of the box! I found mine a bit too green though, after changing the settings you've linked it's near enough perfect.
I also strongly recommend you use a tool such as Color Grabber which allows you to sample your display's color using your Android phone's camera. I needed to remove a bit of red and mine was as perfect as can be for TN. One tip I'd give is to take the shot slightly out of focus and at a perfect angle since getting a consistent shot on a panel of this type can be tricky.
I pulled up a white image of RBG 255,255,255 and after making the necessary color adjustments, the tool sampled the same (within margin of error). I also did the same for grey (127,127,127).
hmm, I donćt know, for me it seemed ok. It even gives you the option to turn the flashlight on in low light conditions. It should be able to easily distinguish brown from red though.
I use this one
Ever found a picture that gave you a certain feeling, a feeling that you find pleasure in? Here is something that gives you the opportunity to find out which colors in that picture that gives you the feeling.
Since y'all like colors so much, this app might be treasure for all of ya.
It allows you to make a phone wallpaper with different colors and gradients. It is awesome.
You can download color detection apps, like this one I just downloaded and tried out for android. I'm sure it'd come in handy for more than just bananas.
You can use Color grab app to fetch color scheme of a image.

I'd like to recommend Color Grab. [link]
Useful for grabbing beautiful colour palettes, best for designers.
OR....you could install color grab app and check it yourself in 3 seconds.... At least you have a wife, so FML :)
I am sorry, no. But there are alternatives on Android (this is pretty popular).
I've been using a color analysis app called Color Grab to match inks and pens. According to it, Diamine Teal ink (which I own) and the TWSBI ECO in Turquoise are the same hue, but the ink is less saturated and lighter. Maybe Diamine Marine would be a better match for your pen?
EDIT: Diamine Soft Mint looks close, too.

For colors in general I use Color Grab for Android.
I scan ink colors with an Android app called Color Grab, and then organize them in the app by their HSV hue values.
How would you go with something like this :
Already one available
I'm not that fashion savvy, but I am tech savvy.
