    Michael, I was curious to hear about the vOICe crashing your phone. I use the vOICe as a color identifier and it works quite well on my Nokia E51. It is a great little program and I would be happy to help you or anyone else up and running with it. Color identification is just one of the things the program can do. It has helpped me find light switches in hotel rooms, take interesting photographs on business trips, helpped me match my trousers and ties etc. One thing to remember when using it for color identification, it recognizes the color of only what it finds in the center of the camera view. You could always try using a scanner with the vOICe and getting a better color match that way.
