Make sure the text you're designing isn't too light in your interface designs with Contrast. Combine this simple little menu bar app with your favorite design tool and design with accessibility in mind.

Enter hex codes manually or use the built in color picker for sampling colors directly from your designs.

Tear the app from the menu bar and use it as a floating window wherever you'd like. It'll stay on top of your active design tool for quick access to the WCAG contrast scores.

What’s New

Version 1.3.2

Update our data privacy. Before we had some analytics to anonymously track how many times Contrast was opened just because we were curious. We never did anything with this data and haven't looked at it in years. Some asked why there was some tracking, so we decided to just remove it altogether. Now, Contrast doesn't collect any information. In fact, Contrast can't even connect to the Internet anymore. Enjoy!

Useful tool

This is a very useful tool that should be apart of every inclusive designer’s toolbox. However, there is room to approve

* Rapid color picking, would be nice to pick primary and secondary colors without having to return to the tooltip
* rgba, hsl, and more color modes should be supported
* Keyboard shortcuts

Not picking the correct color

The app worked for a little bit, then out of the blue it started picking the wrong colors.

The only support that I got so far is to reference a FAQ page for this issue which tries to persuade that it will pick up a relative value in which it will give the correct rating. That statement is flawed in so many levels.

I wish the developer fixes this issue soon though because as of right now, this is just not useful anymore.

Use it all the time

The convenience this tool brings is important to my workflow. I changed the hotkeys to buttons on my mouse so I can easily check the contrast without needing to leave the program I'm using.
