Some really interesting ideas, needs a lot of work.

There are some really cool things about this app that make me really wish it worked better.

The web color picker would be awesome, but any time you try to select a color, it just wraps a box around the entire element, as though you were selecting it in Safari, and gives you the option to copy the section.

Color selection from an image works alright, but it's disappointing that there's no option for activating the swatches picked by the "photo analysis" feature of the Coordinate section. And sadly, there doesn't seem to be a way to save a palette from the colors you select in the coordinate section.

Overall, the interactions are a bit wonky, and you often have to try several times to move or select the item you intend to.

This isn't particularly usable at the moment, but I'm really, really hoping that development continues, because this has the potential to be a very powerful color picker / palette generator with some very unique features.

App does not work!!

This App simply does not work. It shuts down and when it doesn’t, it gets stuck in the tutorials, so its impossible to actually use it.
It should NOT be on the App Store.

Quilters and Fabric Workers Dream and It Works in The New IOS

This is a great application for making pics of your favorite fabric swatches and getting ideas on how to use them. It automatically pics the main colors out of a swatch that you captured with your camera and saves it with the pic. You can make collections and projects in the app. And you can search. Can't beat the price or the concepts. Must have.
