    Both methods are simple.
    A multimeter is a tool.
    What else do you expect?

    Yes, just go to your supermarket and dump them all in the Ohm counter. It will count up all the Ohms, and give you back a resistor that has 95% of the Ohms you put in.

    Use the colour chart Harald has supplied, it's really easy. Or tell us the colours. Take a close up picture or them just to be sure.

    Oh dear I thought it couldn't get any worse :) Time for me to go Ohm I have spent log enough on here :)

    Glad I'm not the Ohmly one who is enjoying this!

    Ohm my good!

    The color code chart I linked is suitable for 4-band and 5-band resistors. The app you refer to is nothing more than an electronic version of this color code chart. If you do the decoding yourself by looking at the color codes and the chart, you will soon learn to recognize the colors and the associated codes and you can decode most resistors without the help of the chart.

    The version I heard from my physics teacher was much more politically incorrect. Hint: The first one was the actual color.

    You know someone might just try this. I look forward to a report ;)

    Ohm, Ohm on the Ohmmeter Range.
    Ohm is where the heart is.
    She certainly was Ohmly, but I couldn't resistor.
