Drop is a delightful little color picker for developers and designers.

Pick a color and it will be copied in your preferred format. It's that easy.

> Zooming Picker
Picking a one pixel border? No worries! You can freely zoom the picker in and out with your scroll wheel or trackpad.

> Accurate
Most color pickers (including Apple's) don't pick the exact color value because of reasons that we have to understand but you don't. Drop lets you pick the exact color by switching the color profile associated with the app you are picking from.

> Dark Mode
For all those fans of the dark side, we got you covered.

> Touch Bar
That's right, get quick access to all your colors right from your fancy new Touch Bar. It's the most convenient way to have quick access to your colors. Ever.

> Just the formats you use
Quickly switch between the common formats you are actually going to need your colors copied into: HEX, RGB, Swift UIColor, Swift NSColor, Objective-C UIColor, and Objective-C NSColor.

> Palette
Save colors for later in your color palette.

> Delight
This app was built with more TLC than you can even imagine. It's those little details that make all the difference.

So far so good

This seems like it will be a useful app. I think it will be much easier to use than the digital color meter built in.

So far my only complaint is that I'm not totally sure what to do with the profile option in the preferences pane. The app description makes it sound like it's all automatic, but the dropdown in preferences seems to imply that I need to pick one. Some more information on how this works and what we need to do with it would be much appreciated. Maybe a lengthy video is in order that explains the exact problem and what this app does to fix it.

Great app love it just wish I could run it in the background with it not showing up in the dock! I know its petty but why not have the option? SIP does. For me its a 5 star app if it had that!

Developer Response ,

Totally agree! Currently working on that feature and want to release it in the next update. Thanks for your support!
