An awesome way to illustrate my perspective to my friends. However, there is a weird bug where the shutter noise overrides the phone's volume setting and makes a loud annoying click. Only "do not disturb" silences it. Adding video conversion would be a cool feature addition.

This app is excellent to show people what it is like to be colourblind. People often ask, "what does red look like to you?" It's impossible to answer, but with this app I can simply show them. NOTE: seems that with the recent Android 11 update on my Google Pixel 2 XL, I can no longer save images from this app to my phone. I get "Image File Save Error." I have checked the apps permission and they are all enabled.

Useful for if you need to simulate colour blindness. I created a document for work and needed opinions on how the document would look for people who are colour blind. I will however need to test the document on a real person to confirm the app's results. One issue I picked up: if you take a picture of all 4 colour variants using selfie-mode, the photos get mirrored and the headings for each colour variant gets switched up leaving the results and their descriptions inaccurate.
