Love the app

Extremely accurate with the color picker. One problem I have is that the fps drops significantly when color picking a photo in your camera roll. Other than that this is a very excellently made app.

Excellent for a beginner painter

I’m new to painting and I purchased this app to help me identify color palettes. My favorite feature is the ability to import a photo and get a list of all of the colors from the image, that was exactly what I was looking for in an app.

I’ve also been using the live camera to scan my mixed paints to see how accurate my mixtures are for my palette.

New owners

I used to love Aurora, and was surprised to see the reviews in the state they are in, but then I grabbed it again and it made sense.

The original author of this app (who you can find in the release notes for older versions) appears to have sold this and several other of his older apps to PoeticBytes, and every single one of them has reviews that mention crashing, strange behaviors, and functionality that just plain doesn't work.

Aurora is definitely in sad shape now. It crashes frequently, windows can't resize correctly, I even got it into a state where each time I opened it, it opened multiple copies of the main window, and crashed when I tried to close one.

On top of this, as of time of writing, PoeticBytes has no support or contact information on their site. I would definitely avoid any of their apps until/unless these issues are resolved.
