At least try to use full-spectrum light, or next to an open window during
the daytime.
Full spectrum lights are useful for low-vision as well.

Color ID apps may be fun and entertaining, but should not be depended on for
accurate color recognition, like matching an outfit for work, etc. The
ambient light gets in the way. It is best to use a dedicated hardware color
ID device for this purpose.

There are not any apps for the iPhone that I would trust to give anything close to accurate color readings.
The camera is not designed for that, and the lighting can change what it says about a color quite a bit.

You either need a stand-alone piece of equipment like the Colorino, or if the Rainbow III comes out this year; or to get sighted assistance.
Aira or Be My Eyes could help as they could tell you if you need to move into better lighting, etc.
