Such a Unique and Rad Tool

I wanted to say thank you so much to the developer of, Color Thief, for this wonderful application. I think it's truly such a unique concept and that it makes creating new filters for photos a really exciting and fun experience.

The possibilities seem endless to me with being able to add new color schemes to your photos. So many apps and games today are just straight up copies of other existing apps and games. But, with, Color Thief, I believe you've created a one-of-a-kind application and tool. Congratulations on that ingenuity and creativity, it's a rare thing today in my opinion on the App Store.

Also, I cannot stress enough how grateful and thankful I am to the app's developer for being rad and for not using disgusting in-app purchases or subscription plan garbage with this app. Developers like you are always a huge winner 🏆 in my book for not being scum and for not utilizing that crap with your apps. You're a dying breed and again I cannot tell how grateful and thankful I am to you for actually being ethical and moral in selling your wonderful application. Thanks for that and God bless.

Oh, and, any new apps you come out with, assuming you still sell them for one single price. Well, I'll be first in the proverbial line to purchase any of the new apps you release. You've got a customer for life in me if you continue to sell your apps this way. Thanks, again, and I hope you're doing great.

Using this constantly!

Too bad more people don't know about this great app. There's nothing else like it anywhere. It's a fun tool to play with, but also good for serious work like converting a bunch of photos into a coherent color scheme. However I use it on more than photos. I can make one design/ pattern and see it in other color combinations. I hope the developer keeps it up to date.

A fav app to add unexpected color

I love this app. Spin the dial and you will find such unexpected, yet beautiful color combinations. Color Thief can take a prosaic image and bring it to the wild side. I have used hundreds of filter apps. This has been one of my keepers and is part of my essential tool kit
