If you need a reliable mobile adviser in any argument about colors...
If you want to be able to clearly describe to your boyfriend what color the shirt you saw was...
If you want to never mess up with the lipstick color for your girlfriend...
...then Exotic Colors was created specially for you.

Exotic Colors is a one of a kind application. First of all, it is a catalogue of over 700 named colors (e.g. Terra cotta, Beaver, Atomic tangerine). Also, it is a handy mobile “picker” – if you need to determine a color right here right now – just take a photo and analyze the color.

Use Exotic Colors to:
- learn new color names that you never imagined before
- analyze colors: determine names, convert to HSV, RGB, CMYK, XYZ etc. systems, see complementary, triadic colors, and much more
- save colors and create palettes
- share your palettes with friends/colleagues/customers via social networks, e-mail etc.

Requires Android: 2.2+
Size: 2.0 Mb
Supported languages: English & Russian
Available via Google Play:

We appreciate your opinion for it will help us improve, so please do not hesitate to comment on our app!

As a photographer and web designer I'm liking the sound of this app. Especially since it can help identify and correlate colors into complementary etc, which is extremely helpful in designing layouts and schemes.

I'll check it out and rate it ASAP Just wanted to post since no responses yet, but looks nice!

I like it, its UI might could use some polish but it was intuitive enough first thing for me, and I'm not great at GUIs so not sure what to suggest. But intuitive enough to not be a big deal.

I pointed it around the office a bit, and while of course we're at the mercy of our camera for taking shots, the ability to load an image and analyze it is great. I'd most likely use it in that mode anyway since I don't really trust cameras on phones/tablets.

One suggestion.. Can you leave the pointer in the same place when scrolling an image, so one can use that to scroll an image to that spot? Tapping to move it is good, I like that. But if I've already set a spot and want to just move it a little bit, it'd be nice to be able to just scroll the image a little to that spot.

No functional issues, but some drawing issues. Nexus 7, haven't tried it on my phone. So all the info is there, but it's not quite drawn in the right place.

Thank you for the detailed feedback!

We will consider your suggestion about locking the picker in place and then this drawing issue you highlighted (strange though that it draws like this, should have been fine... Anyway, thanks, we will try to fix it ).

Great app. As a lighting designer,I'm always dealing with clients that want "this color here". This should make it much easier. Thank you.

Thumbs up Laboratory
I like this app a lot, one of the things though that caught was the Laboratory. The one thing I would personally suggest here is have it so that you can put your finger on the screen and drag the cursor around as well as tap to position it without moving the color pattern around the screen.

Very well done app, I've only got one other that comes close to this and that's the myPantone. Keep up the great work!
