Fantastic App! I am so happy I found this app! My 10 year old is color blind and this allows me to see the world the way he does. It's fun for both of us and allows me to better understand why he likes certain things more than others, particularly clothing choices. I'm in the graphic design field and have above average color vision myself, so while it saddens me a bit that he can't appreciate color, this app helps me understand his vision and sparks some interesting conversations.
Without the app - strong protanopia. With it - normal color vision! I took color vision tests at two websites and got strong protanopia at 8:30. At 9 o'clock I installed this app, and the smallest app on the phone made the largest change to my body!! It doubled as the $600+ spectacles. I am finally able to beat Ishihara at least :D (maybe one day i'll be able to see the rainbow too :D)
Good! The actual heart of the app is great. The GUI could use a bit of improvement. Tapping the corners of the screen is a bit weird, and can be done on accident. A three way toggle, or maybe a setup menu for what you want would be better. As a color blind person, it's also impossible to tell if the split screen is on. A black line down the middle would be great.
Brilliant This is a terrific app. Previously, when friends/strangers learned I am colorblind, it was always stupid questions like "what does it look like to you?" and "what color is this?" Now I just show them this app, and without fail they are completely amazed at how I see the world. I also learned, thanks to this app, that apparently human skin looks "zombie-like" to me when my normal color vision friends use it to look at people. Maybe that's a part of why I'm attracted to certain women and not others.
Does not do spectral frequency manipulation This app does not do spectral frequency manipulation, so it does not work for the common anomalous forms of colour blindness such as protanomaly or deutanomaly. This makes it useless if you have these. If the app included facilities to make spectral frequency manipulation adjustments, it would be excellent.
Very helpful, but fix the camera focus I use this app to help me identify green conductors in various types of low voltage cables. It is a life saver for me, but I can't emphasize enough how frustrating it is that I often can't get the camera to focus on what I need to have it focus on. Especially when the lighting is somewhat low, and I have to focus on something close-up, I am frustrated by the camera not focusing consistently. The camera in my Note 4 is very good, but not with this app. I've experienced the same problem with my Galaxy S5, too
Still the only free colorblindness simulator with correction capability. Thanks for downloading!
NEW: Android 4.2 Support - fixed copyPixelsFromBuffer() crash due to API change.
NEW: Tablets with ARM 7a should be significantly faster
NEW (ONLY FOR COLORBLIND PEOPLE): Added correction mode (Daltonization) - tap top left or use menu! Adjust the error distribution between the two channels you can see using volume up and down. Now you can finally see what's in these Ishihara plates!
