Being color blind is no fun. Those who are color blind don’t have to make drastic changes to their lifestyle. But that issue could slow them down, especially in design and other jobs that require having to deal with colors. Thankfully, there are tools that show people how severe their issue is and ways they can get around it. Here are 6 iOS apps that can prove helpful for the color blind:
