App review: Pixolor

Find the exact colour of any pixel with this handy app



Once you give it access to capture everything on the screen, Pixolor displays a floating circle that shows colour information – RGB code and nearest Material Design shade. So by dragging it around and pinching the screen to zoom, you can discover the precise colour of anything. It also shows the distance moved and lets you measure areas. Tapping a colour code copies it to the clipboard or alternatively, use Pixolor’s notification in order to share it or possibly open the app for a colour wheel and palette.
