Are you a graphics designer, in love with all kind shades or suffer from colorblindness? Cone for iOS is here to make your day. Thanks to App Store developer, Kushagra Agarwal, your iPhone is now able to provide live real world color tracking. After receiving access to your device’s Camera, Cone is able to focus, detect and name any color that you pinpoint it too. If the target is on the move you can use the Freeze Frame technique and snapshot the object that you want to receive color info for.
Pantone Colors is another great feature provided by this color reading app. The software is able to indicate the closest matching Pantone color for the shade that it just captured. If you’re not aware yet, Pantone is a standardized color matching procedure, that utilizes a patented Pantone numbering system for detecting colors. This way, manufacturers from various locations can all use identical color tones, without using direct comparison.
