Ratings and Reviews
More than a palette generator
This has long been my favorite color app, so I’m delighted to see it restored to full working order for iOS 11. Viewing your swatches in 3D colorspace tells you so much about how your colors relate to each other—something side by side comparisons on a flat chart cannot do. Those relationships in turn guide you in tweaking the palette deliberately, with much less hit and miss, yet without losing the fluid, intuitive aspects of the process. I also appreciate that palette size is flexible. You’re not locked into the ubiquitous 5-slot format. Export to Evernote is handy, too.
One improvement that would help: either an undo option or a way to lock colors in place on the fly. It’s much too easy to move swatches without realizing it. Fortunately you can save palettes along the way, but that’s only a half measure.
I can’t emphasize enough how much incredible potential this app has as a color tool. I really hope the dev keeps developing this amazing app especially now that digital painting is getting so prevalent on the iPad Pro. This app already can do so much but it just needs a few added elements. Firstly, it needs the ability to export actual color palettes for programs like Procreate. iCloud and Dropbox integration is also important to be able to store the palettes. It would be nice to be able to have up to 30 swatches for Procreate palettes (though not completely necessary). And as of now, the camera function crashes the app on my iPad Pro right now.
Thank you to the dev for doing such a great job already! Please keep developing this app!
Amazing little app!
ColorRotate hits the sweet spot between play and precision. Beautifully designed, it makes discovering core tools intuitively part of the process. The most fun I’ve had with a design tool in a long time.
