If you're taking Material Color, one of your required textbooks is The Elements of Color, by Johannes Itten. If you have the free Kindle app, you can purchase this textbook. The Kindle app allows you to highlight important text, take notes, and share excerpts. And no more carrying around extra pounds of textbooks in your bags! Elements of Color in the Kindle store - $40 How well can you see the subtle differences between hues of color? This app gives you the challenge of rearranging squares of color to transition smoothly from one color to the next. Train your eyes and start paying attention to how colors around you mix! How well do you see color? - FREE Want to know what color that table next to you is? Want to be able to use the colors from the environment around you in your next piece? The iDropper app lets you take a quick photo and immediately tell what color an object is. Just tap on an area in the photo with your finger or stylus, and the app will tell you the color codes for RGB, CMYK, Hue/Saturation/Value, and Hexadecimal. iDropper - FREE Visuallusion uses visual illusions to explain how information is processed by the brain. The app shows an illusion, then explains how and why the brain processes it in that way. Use this app to help understand how your mind interprets visual signals. Visuallusion - FREE Part textbook, part color wheel, the Colormixer app "contains an interactive color tutorial, chapters of information and illustrations which teach a system for understanding the properties of color, and relationships between colors." Learn color hands on with this informational app. Colormixer - $7.99
