Me and my husband are thinking if it's possible to predicted my baybe's eyes color.
My husband has a brown eyes, same as me.
I wonder if our baybe may have different eye color?
I found this app on google play, and I wonder if it's any good

The app is better because i can check color eye on my mobile phone
I've never heard of someone's eye color changing after becoming an adult. It's not like Facebook where someone might post a new eye color for you after you'd checked it once. For people reading this forum, clicking on a link is going to be far more convenient than going to Google Play, looking for an app, installing the app, using it, and then uninstalling it because the information isn't going to change and leaving it on the phone is a waste of space.

Wow, I got curious and looked it up and the closest app was "My baby's eyes" and it relies on photos. That's a ridiculous amount of work for what looks like a random guess from all the possible outcomes for the two given eye colors.

You don't need an app, you can easily make a few predictions for eye color based on genetics and alleles. Brown is dominant and blue is recessive. Two blue eyed parents can only have a blue eyed child. Two brown eyed parents might have a blue eyed child if both of them carry the recessive allele for blue eyes.

you can learn more about punnett squares for calculating phenotype probability here: http://genetics.thetech.org/ask/ask59

Except two blue eyed parents can have a brown eyed child. http://genetics.thetech.org/how-blue-eyed-parents-can-have-brown-eyed-children

And you're ignoring the green mutation.
