Slows Down Your Workflow

First off, I appreciate the work and inspiration that went into making this. For me, however, this software’s performance and bloat got in the way of the fundamental problem it is attempting to solve - to provide a useful set of productivity features on top of a color picker.

My Mid 2013 MacBook Air isn’t a beast, but there is no excuse for the delay between using the keyboard shortcut to open the color picker and the point at which the color picker actually opens. This is certainly an issue with Sip (or possibly whatever OS X API it is using). By comparison, applications like Alfred open instantly when using the keyboard shortcut, providing a fast and unintrusive user experience.

On a positive note, the Adobe CS integration and plethora of color formats does give this potential. But until Sip performs as fast as you would expect for a tool of its nature, I’m fine just using OS X's Digitial Color Meter and Shift+Command+C.

Simply Superb

Sip is hands-down the most beautiful and refined color picker out there in a very crowded market. The “Pro” features are incredible – I’ve never had so much fun playing with colors in my life than when I found the color-mixer tool. If you work with colors at all, you need this app. It’s as simple as that.

To the developers: Keep up the great work!

Some Pro Features don’t Work

Just purchased the Pro version. It doesn’t sync between my iMac and Macbook. I’m not able to change the palette names. Nice app but needs improvement.
