Cone: The Designer's Premium Color Tool

Designed by a designer, for designers, Cone sets a new standard on the App Store. It's not just an app; it's a beautifully designed experience, offering an intuitive and precise color exploration tool. As the only App Store offering licensed by Pantone, Cone ensures you always have access to the most updated Pantone shades.

Top Features:

1. Pantone Matching: Snap any color, and Cone seamlessly matches it to the closest Pantone shades (Coated and Uncoated). With up to 10 Pantone recommendations, ranked by matching precision, never second guess your color choices again.

2. Real-time Color Identification: Open the app and watch it work instantly. It identifies colors on the go, displaying the name and hex code (can be changed to RGB, CMYK, or HSL).

3. Extended Color Codes: Dive deeper into the color spectrum with extended codes. From RGB and Hex to CMYK, HSL, LAB, HSV, and XYZ, Cone offers a spectrum of possibilities.

4. Color Harmonies: Uncover the relationships between colors. Discover complementary, analogous, and more harmony patterns, enhancing your design process.

5. Personal Color Library: Capture and store colors that inspire you. Whether cataloging real-world inspirations or manually adding via hex codes, your library reflects your design journey.

6. Gallery Color Picking: Tap into your gallery and extract colors from photos.

7. Bucket Organization & Exports: Organize your colors into buckets and export them as beautifully laid-out palettes.

8. Manual Color Accuracy: Adjust colors in challenging light conditions. Combined with the built-in torch mode, Cone ensures accuracy even in tricky environments.

9. Freeze Frame: Are the colors on move? Instantly freeze the frame and pick colors in your own time.

10. Colorblind Mode: This mode toggles the color names in the live preview to show simplified names like Blue, Green, Red, etc instead of names like Brandy Rose to make it easy for Colorblind people to identify colors.

11. Quick Code Copy: Copy color codes with a single tap and bring them into other design tools.

With Cone, you're equipped with a comprehensive toolkit tailored for designers who seek perfection.

So close

With pantone charging a subscription to pick colors, I suddenly need a solution for color picking the closest Pantone color asap. I have rgb / cmyk images I need to convert to Pantone but there doesn't seem to be anything that gives the same accuracy, or doesn't even let me select the Pantone color profile I need.

Would it be possible for you to add the option for Pantone Solid Coated colors?

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the review. With the latest update, you can now choose between coated and uncoated colors.

Cried with satisfaction

I’m sure anyone who is color blind has been asked a dozen stupid questions by those who’s cones are intact. This app saves me from having to ask random strangers what color something is. It’s saves me from telling people that my favorite shirt is blue when it’s actually purple. We all see the world differently and that’s what makes it beautiful but this app gives me the ability to know what other people take for granted.

What you need to know

I’ve just recently got this app because i’m red green colorblind and this app comes in very handy when non-colorblind people ask about what colors I see. Very easy to use and fast working too!! Also can be VERY helpful for graphic design and art in general. Now I can finally stop asking other people what color things are!!

Developer Response ,

Thanks a lot for the review! I can totally relate as I am red-green colorblind myself and the whole reason why I made the app was so that I can stop asking others what color things are! Glad you found it useful :)
