Colorblind Assistant

Editors' Review

by   / April 04, 2012

Identifying the correct name of a color online can be hard, and not only for colorblind individuals. Colorblind Assistant, freeware from Achronism Studios, hopes to make this process simpler and more accurate with a streamlined approach and minimal options.

Colorblind Assistant, once installed, has a small unassuming interface that will provide color information on the spot where the mouse is pointed on. The hexadecimal and RGB (red, green, blue) values are displayed under the name of the color. The application is capable of zooming in for even closer color identification, but you won't find any other settings or options.

Colorblind Assistant has a single purpose and it gets the job done with minimal fuss. In addition to being a tool for those who can't see color, it is also a perfect tool for developers who need to replicate exact colors in their designs. One minor issue we found during the test is that the application installed a desktop icon without permission. Otherwise, the app uninstalled cleanly.
