I don't know of any apps that have used this technique, but there's a paper out from from 2016, which refers to color perception and the environment and seasons.
This is the abstract: Human colour perception changes between seasons
Another reference from one of the authors:
What we are finding is that between seasons our vision adapts to changes in environment. So in summer when there is a much larger amount of foliage, our visual system has to account for the fact that on average we are exposed to far more green.
“In York, you typically have grey, dull winters and then in summer you have greenery everywhere. Our vision compensates for those changes and that, surprisingly, changes what we think ‘yellow’ looks like. It’s a bit like changing the colour balance on your TV.”
The researchers tested 67 men and women in January and June. Participants were placed in a darkened room, allowed to adjust to the light and then on a machine called a colorimeter asked to adjust a dial backwards and forwards until they felt they had reached the point where it had reached unique yellow – with no hint of a green or red.
“I take lots of measurements of the setting in both seasons, and find a shift in the average setting between seasons, ” Lauren said.
If anyone has found a UX case study for an app, please post.
