Absolutely indespensible

Color Slurp has proven to be an absolutely indespenisble tool as a graphic designer. My favorite part is how quickly and easily this lets me use colors from one color space in another. As a freelance designer, I get all sorts of files from my clients, oftentimes inconsistent with one another. Thanks to Color Slurp it's now a breeze to pick CMYK colors from InDesign and use them as RGB colors over in Illustrator. I can even easily convert my brand colors to the weird colorspace Squarespace uses without having to Google a random website to help me out!

I also really love how if you have it on one device, you're able to sync it through iCloud with all your others. I can create custom palettes on my computer and use them immediately over in a procreate file. The camera color selection tool is a really neat and useful addition as well– my favorite palette comes from a sunflower I saw while I was out walking!

All in all, if you do design or artistic work of any kind, I highly recommend this app on all your devices, and I recommend buying the pro version to unlock all the extremly useful features it has!

Prety great tool

This product is very cool, very intuitive and well designed. Note if you're having trouble getting this to work with full screen apps you need te enable "Show App Icon In": "Menu Bar Only" under the general settings tab.

Would love to see this product just appear as "menu-bar window" always linked to the top of the screen like the "Color Note" app instead of a window you can drag around and have to click the close button on to dismiss, as that seems a little easier to use.

The app also makes a "Slurp" sound when you select color.. which is hilarious... but a little wierd. Luckily you can turn it off if you don't want to scare your co-workers.

Hi mrapogee, you can use the ColorSlurp magnifier in full-screen mode. Just set the ColorSlurp preference "Show App Icon In:" to "Menu Bar Only". This will allow using the magnifier in full-screen. Do to how the Mac OS APIs work, the magnifier cannot go into fullscreen apps when ColorSlurp's dock icon is displayed.

This is the best color picker and color blender in the market! This app is incredibly well crafted and the fact that you can create and save many different collections makes it indispensable for designers, photographers, app developers, you name it. You can also use the palette and blend colors until you find the perfect combination. Never seen anything like this. It's now one of my favorite apps. Just get the full app with in-app purchase, you won't regret it. I had an issue with the store and the developer replied right away and helped solve the issue. Very nice guy. Excellent support.
