As the title would suggest, this is LifeDropper - the eyedropper tool for real life.
LifeDropper is designed to determine the colour of objects in the real world, and then present you with what it finds.

Instructions are provided when you open the app. Please leave feedback and make feature requests! Bug reports are extremely welcome!

Important note regarding feedback: when providing feedback, please include your phone model, Android version, ROM version (if applicable), and a link to the logcat (preferably posted on www.pastebin.com). If you don't know how to provide log information, please don't ask for directions in this thread.

Another important note regarding feedback: be brutal. If you hate the icon, tell me. If you hate the layout of something, tell me. If you hate the name, tell me. If you hate the concept...don't tell me that. Also tell me good things. Lots of good things.

Without further ado,

Market Version


Happy tagging!

Hey,

great idea!
Taking screens and analyizing colors seems to work for me, but upon saving and sharing, app crashes .

(replace 'xx' with 'tt', since i can't post links yet)
Log for save-crash:
hxxp://pastebin.com/9FhrUMNc
Log share-crash:
hxxp://pastebin.com/XB3U6xVE

Suggestion(s):
- change camera overlay (the bright rectangle in camera view)'s size, so that it reflects the number of pixels being analyized. (e.g. 1px analyzed: only cross, 144px -> 12*12 rectangle, 2500px = 50*50rectangle (you get the point )
- make color values selectable (text), so you can copy/paste them somewhere else.

Besides that, great concept, icon is ok aswell .

Cheers!


EDIT:
almost forgot:
phone: Samsung Galaxy S2
android: 2.3.3
rom: XWKE7

Awesome! Thanks for the feedback and the logcat! I'll look into the issues you're getting. I assume you are using a different locale than en_CA or en_US (as it appears you are from Germany), and that's where the share issue is coming from. I was considering having the size change for the overlay, I think that'll be a definite feature now.

As for the save error, I'm confused. The logs don't appear to be showing me anything. Everything seems to be going fine and then suddenly my Activity is force finished. I'll need to do some more investigating in that department.
EDIT: The share logcat confuses me as well, even though I'm sure I know what the issue is. I think the developer of your ROM has set the log level to very low.

Yep locale setting seems to be the problem. After switching it from de_DE to en_US saving and sharing are working fine.

Seems like everything from verbose upwards is being logged, i could give you a filtered log if needed?
(Fyi it's the stock rom if thats any helpful)

That's alright. If changing the locale solved the issue, then the locale is the problem

Would you be so kind as to post some screenshots of the app in order to entice users?

Thanks!

I'll try to get some screenshots as soon as possible, unfortunately my phone's battery exploded. I have a new one on the way and it should be here in the coming days. If anyone else would like to post some screenshots they're welcome to!
(I've tried to take some through the emulator, but they don't work because a) I'm testing a camera-oriented app on the camera-less emulator, and b) the camera uses a surface which updates while the screenshot is being taken so they end up breaking.)
