What's New in Version 1.1
Added widths support! Now you can create palettes with different sized color swatches.
Very nice indeed
A couple of things to note. This is an iOS app from the same company that have the wonderful ColorSchemer Studio 2 app, a professional palette and color matching tool on the Mac. This iOS version offers a subset of the functionality of the Mac version, but It's free and rather good at what it does, you can develop palettes and share them. You can easily and intuitively create palettes from photographs for instance.
Use of palettes on iOS is pretty limited however so the functionality for a designer that the Mac version offers. especially integration into the system wide color picker, is missing. You can however, once you log in and set up a ColourLovers account, have your palettes on iOS available to you on your Mac version if you own both. There's no syncing of personal ones, you have to search for the name you saved the palette under, hopefully something they'll deal with in the next Mac version. A reviewer stated that you need to register. You don't, you just don't share them if you don't register. No problem at all using it and saving palettes for people who don't register.
Recommended especially if you're a designer or artist. The ability to focus on a palette using touch is a marvel.
This App NEEDS to be Updated
Despite my low rating, I have to say that this is a great app to use when trying to make color palettes. It's nice, simple, & it lets you upload the palettes you make online easily.
HOWEVER, there's just one major that makes this app a pain to use. Practically every single time I try it out, it keeps freezing & I'm completely unable to use it unless I delete it & download it from the App Store again (until the next time it freezes). The freezing's separator though & it can happen anywhere between a couple of days and a few months, but it's still annoying enough that it's not even worth the effort to try and use it.
In short, Color Schemer is an excellent app to use, but wait until the creators get all of their bugs fixed first before you try it 😑
This is a perfect app to try out color schemes. I am a jewelry designer and when I see a color scheme somewhere I can quickly snap a picture of the colors and save my palette. I do wish that there was a way to pick out complementary colors, split complementary, tertiary, etc....as suggested colors to go with a color. A function such as that would be a great teaching tool for my 12 year old. it would also be a great function when I'm stumped on a secondary compliment to pair with the main color of one of my pieces.
