Sleek, practical, and best of all: free!

Very easy to use and simple. No directions provided, no directions needed. You can create color palettes (if that’s your thing) or browse other people’s.

One thing I’d change: I don’t see a shuffle button. It’s be pretty cool if you could randomly browse other popular palettes to help select themes for people who are as indecisive as myself.

Other than that, perfect app. As soon as I saw it, I was literally amazed that such a clean, elegant, and modern app is 100% free. I don’t usually write reviews, but that last bit made me do it.



I needed to get a hex color from a picture that I had taken on my phone. This app allows you to either take a picture or use an existing picture to grab a hex value. This app also allows you to compare colors to see contrasts. The developer also seems to update this app very regularly. Also did I mention that it’s free!

It does everything... FOR FREE.

I’m a little taken aback when an app is as intuitive as this. You want to make a new palette? Click +. You want to have four colors? Click +. You want to edit HSB instead of RGB? Click HSB tab. You want to view your palette full screen? Click 👁. This is insane and the developer is a god. Thank you so much.
