Color Picker, the utility application, designed for all Cocoa developers and application designers. An efficient color picker, for professionals, who care about optimizing their workflow and speed up their process.

With Color Picker, you can choose any color from everywhere on your screen using the magnifier and selecting your desired pixel. Then a preview of the color, its Hexadecimal, RGB value, NSColor and UIColor is displayed.
You can copy the code with a single click, drag 'n drop or use the new shortcuts to paste it into your source code.

Color Picker has now become even better.

- With the new Menubar option, you can quickly access your recently copied or recently saved colors.
- The magnifier tool is instantly displaying a preview of the color. (HEX or RGB)
- Drag and drop your code from the application to any program you are working on. (e.g. Xcode)

Additionally, the app can read any HEX or RGB values that you might type and show you the corresponding color and code.

Last but not least, Color Picker gets you out of trouble remembering the colors you used, as it contains a library, where you can store the colors for any use in the future, simply by dragging the preview box to the library.

Especially for developers is now given the chance of Zero suppression, where they can remove redundant zeroes from the float numbers, as well as appending a semicolon in the source code.

Key Features:
- Touch bar integration
- Added menubar icon
- Added recently saved and copied colors
- Code is draggable to other apps (e.g. Xcode)
- HEX or RGB value showing in the magnifier
- Retina support
- Pick up any color using the new built-in magnifying glass tool
- Save as many colors in the library for future use.
- Copy the format you need for your source code (e.g. NSColor, UIColor, HEX, RGB)

Color Picker requires macOS 10.10 or later

Easy, Fast, Simple

Love using this for keeping color palets. Great for websites and other uses when you want to keep your branding on point. One thing I would love to see is different folders that we could keep colors in, but that would negate the “simple” component. Still, love 100%!

App swatch not true representation of colour picked

The picked colour seems to be extremely pale and washed out. I have another app which gives a truer representation of colours, but will only allow 10 to be saved. The hexadecimal values in this app are completely different. My work relies on accurate colour depiction and this app certainly falls short

Also, it is extremely arrogant of a developer to assume everyone uses Facebook, I do not and, as that appears to be the only way Patrik is offering to support his app, I have no choice but to ask for a refund.

Evidently the other reviewers are reviewing a completely different app.

The most practical colour sampler

I have tried lots of colour sampling apps, but this is the one that I have found most practical, with the option of custom swatches, choiuce of formats and an unambiguous interface that may not be the flashiest but just does what you need.
