iWant colour

Ever wished you could literally 'catch' a colour? Well now you can - in paint form anyway. The iPhone and Design Daily sponsor Resene have teamed up to create the clever ColourMatch application.

This nifty application enables a colour match to be made from any image taken on a user’s iPhone, giving users instant access to thousands of Resene colours. Alternatively you can use the colour spectrum to select a colour and find the nearest paint colour and complementary colour suggestions.

Developed by Chrometoaster and Y&R, the app is unique in that it is the only iPhone app developed specifically for New Zealand paint colours.

Better yet, it’s free to download.
