Ever wondered what the name for that color is? Or wanted a set of colors that could be described as 'dusty'?
Color Namer lets you name colors in the world around you using your camera. You can also explore the whole named colorspace with a color picker, search through color names, and find names for hex values.
The named colors in the app were taken from the results of the XKCD color survey: xkcd.com/color/rgb/. This huge survey asked real people to name swatches of colors. After some data processing by XKCD, the survey resulted in some pretty funny color names, like "ugly purple", "boring green", "vomit yellow" and "barney".
