The app allows users to take a photo with your camera or import images already stored on the device to analyze. By zooming in and out and hovering the onscreen cursor over the color-shade-of-interest, users can see the details mentioned previously, as well as the complementary, analogous, and triadic colors, just to mention a few. Colors can be saved to a palette’ for further reference and shared through SMS, Cloud storage, or any other share intent of choice.

A most useful tool for photographic and aesthetic design purposes, Leonidan has packed all this into only 2 megabytes, along with support for Android versions 2.2 and newer.
