Adobe Color CC – capture color themes
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Sample colors around you to create themes you can use in Adobe mobile apps like Comp CC, Illustrator Draw and Photoshop Sketch, as well as desktop apps including Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop.
Use your screen as a viewfinder. The app will dynamically extract colors from whatever you’re looking at. Tap the screen to freeze on a selection you like.
Photos you take with Color will automatically save to your camera roll, making it easy to extract multiple themes from the same image.
An interactive color wheel and RGB color sliders let you adjust individual colors. There are also pre-set selections based on color theory — a great option if you’re getting started or looking for quick inspiration.
Share your color themes — and the images that inspired them — through Facebook, Twitter or email. You can also opt to make themes public on color.adobe.com. Add keyword tags to make them easier to find.
CREATIVE CLOUD LIBRARIES – powered by CreativeSync*
Your color themes will automatically sync to your Creative Cloud account, giving you instant access from compatible desktop and mobile applications. You can also access assets you’ve created in other Adobe apps to create new color themes.
LOCAL COLOR – only on the Apple watch
See the sights in a spectrum of color. Pair the app with your Apple watch, and turn on geolocation, to reveal color themes that were captured nearby. View the theme, name, distance and map location. Swipe to see the ten most popular themes in the vicinity. Add them to your library as-is, or pass one to your iPhone for real-time adjustments. (Note – Running GPS in the background for long periods of time can dramatically decrease battery life.)

2GB FILE STORAGE – powered by CreativeSync*
Use of Adobe mobile apps requires a free, basic level of Creative Cloud membership, which includes 2GB of complimentary storage for file syncing and sharing.
*Adobe CreativeSync ensures that your files, fonts, design assets, settings and more all instantly appear in your workflow wherever you need them. Start your creative work on any device and seamlessly pick it up on another.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------MORE STORAGE (Optional in-app purchase)
If you need more than your allotted 2GB of Creative Cloud file storage, you have the option of purchasing an additional 20GB for $1.99 (US dollars) a month. The recurring payment is automatically charged to your iTunes account. To stop service, simply go to your account Settings and turn off auto-renew at least 24-hours before the end of your billing period. Prorating is unavailable — when you turn off auto-renew, service will continue until the end of that month’s billing period.

What's New in Version 2.2.2
We’ve improved overall stability and performance.
If you enjoy using Color, please share a nice review. It really helps!
Awesome color integration
So it's cool to randomly create a color palette from anything and then take it into illustrator or photoshop later and create something with it. This app is pretty sweet. Only reason I didn't give it five stars is for some reason it lost a few of my colors when I just updated the app. I had about 6 or 7 and when I updated only five remained. And I can't name them anymore? Does this have something to do with the way storing the files on the cloud changed or something?
I'm not a power Adobe user but I love this app!
I only dabble in the Adobe apps and desktop suites. By no means am I a professional graphic designer. However, this app is an incredible tool. My wife and I even use it when we are determining colors to paint in our home. If you ever need to know a color name (and compatible colors to boot) this is the app for you!
Really impressive could use 1 feature
So this app is extremely useful, but I feel that it could use a feature which will iterate or provide you with the color codes of each color in the theme. That would greatly improve the usefulness of the app
