Slightly Off Colors

This works fine if you need roughly the same color- but if you need exact colors, it routinely returns different values than Photoshop would, for example. As a professional designer, it doesn’t work for my purposes, but it would work fine if you have less demanding needs. GREAT interface and super easy to use, just wish the colors were more accurate.

Thanks for pointing out the picker accuracy issues you have been having. The new 2.0 update addresses these issues with a high-accuracy picker. Color codes will now be much more accurate.

Thanks for using Color Note.

Sad to see the old interface go

While still a nice tool, the old interface was a lot more straightforward and it was very easy to see everything you're doing. Having to scroll to through a list to manage your colors and see what you've saved is not a streamlined experience in my opinion.

Simply excelent for quickly copy & pasting color hex values for web design, app develeopment, and anything like that where you have to take note of or copy a ton of color values from images, or even your own app/website! This is a great app, and it suited my needs perfectly! Salute to you sir!
