Color Blind Pal is a cellular phone application that helps people who are color blind see the colors around them. It also lets people with normal vision see what it's like to be color blind. It distinguishes between colors and, for example, its user could see the color "bold brown." User can use the Color Filter to shift colors that are hard to distinguish towards colors that are easier to distinguish. The Color Filter can also simulate any type of color blindness.

The user will open the preferences to select their color blindness type. Press "Inspecting Color" or "Filtering Colors" to switch between the two modes. The user can find out exactly what any color is, read any color-coded map, chart, or graph. Pass a color vision test (it turns out there really are numbers in those dots!)

Additional features in the Color Inspector include the following:

  • Choose between different types of names for a color, including common names, scientific names, and colloquial names (like "beige")
  • See the color's hue, saturation, and value, as well as its exact RGB (red, green, blue) color code
  • Freeze the camera and inspect different colors across the image

Additional features in the Color Filter include

  • Highlight a selected color
  • select a color by pressing it on the screen or by dragging the color spectrum slider
  • Draw a stripe pattern overall reddish colors to tell what color everything is without changing the colors
  • Freeze the camera and experiment with different filters to get an exact sense of what the image really looks like
  • Hide all the buttons on the screen so your device becomes a portal through which you see the world in richer color
