Pixolor – Live Color Picker
Pixolor is a circle floating over your apps showing a zoomed view of the underlying pixels, including color information and coordinates of the central pixel. This app is mainly for designers to know technical pixel-level information. It is also useful for people with poor eye sight who want to effort lessly zoom in on parts of the screen(e.g. to read text more easily). Requires Android Lollipop (5.0) or higher.
Note: For Xiaomi (MIUI) devices, please enable the overlay permission in the app’s system settings.
Your iPhone friends will be jealous when they realise this technology is not possible on their devices

★ Pixolor takes a single screenshot each time you place your finger on the circle. This is indicated by the brief appearance of the Chromecast status bar icon. When the Chrome cast icon is notvisible, you can be sure no app is reading the screen.
★ Captured screenshot data is never sent (in full or part) from your device or made available outside of the app. The only exception to this is when you explicitly share the image (long-press on thumbnail), in which case it will be shared in the way you request.
