What’s New

Version 4.1

Minor bug fixes and enhancements

ICYMI: For version four, there are improvements “four” every single part of the application… over one hundred changes and improvements! So… we’re probably good on my promise of delivering four new features?

Here are the for (four?) most exciting ones:
- a new toggle for changing the color space through which the color transformations happen
- a new Blend tab for blending multiple colors and creating gradients
- enhancements to the palette sidebar, including the ability to import and export palettes into web files
- Big enhancements to the view modes - play around with them using the W, G, B, and F key

Help Paletter’s quest for perfection - any bug or feature request, however small - I’d love to hear it! Also, tell your friends about it!

Easiest 5-star rating ever

I submitted an earlier 4-star rating that basically said "great app; one bug, contacted the developer and there hasn't been time for him to get back to me". Later that same day I got an answer and a solution (my error, not his). Consider this the current review.

With that said, I'd consider this an essential app for web development. Color palette management has always been a series of compromises for me, but no more. If you have any knowledge of basic color theory at all (and even if you don't, truth be told) you'll be pleasantly surprised at what you’re able to do with ease. The WCAG color checking is worth the price of admission right there. I've got a bunch of color apps. This is the one I use.

Great App

This app has saved me tons of time. Working with colors is usually a challenge, as the tools that I'm used to using are too presumptive and/or limited in functionality. However this app delivers. It's a breath of fresh air created by someone who has clearly gone through the same experience that I have in working with colors and solved it for not only themselves but everyone else too. Kudos.

Beautifully Designed Utility

I had a need for easily getting color codes — and then I found Color Ninja and it solved that issue. This is a really well executed and unique interface that makes working with color and extracting useful color data easy. I find myself even using Color Ninja to imagine, explore, and discover even more than I use it as a utility. Well done. Top notch.
