Greatest app ever
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)
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.
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.
This could be a good app if the developer would update it to check the camera sensor orientation and adjust accordingly. As it is, the view on a Nexus 5X is inverted, making it difficult to use to evaluate (for example) the image. Developer says this has been addressed in the latest version. Not sure if it's ok on the Nexus 5X as I've since upgraded to a Pixel, where it does currently work fine. Very handy for verifying that a given data visualization will be acceptable for your colorblind audience.
Still the only free colorblindness simulator with correction capability. Thanks for downloading!
NEW: Menu entry Flip camera allows to fix flipped front cameras. You just need to set it once for each camera which is flipped.
