Colour Blind Pal. (Apple version) Touch a point in a picture, and the app will display the colour name of that point. It also simulates color blindness so people with normal vision can see what it’s like to be colour blind. Not only does it tell you what the colour names are, but this app has a Colour Inspector that describes the colour to help those who are colour blind.

Colour Blind Helper. (Android version) This app identifies colours for people with colour deficiencies. You take a photo of an object or scene, then touch a point in the picture, and the app will display the colour name, RGB composition or hexadecimal code of the point you touched. The database had about 1,500 colour names when we last checked.
