- Save Colors: Cone lets you pick and save colors to a color library so you can view all the color details at your own leisure.

- Export Buckets: Export buckets as beautiful shareable images with all colors laid out in a detailed palette.

- 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.

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.
Cone has been invaluable for my graphic design business. To be to point my iPhone’s camera to virtually any object and get instant color Information including CMYK values!
Developer Response ,
Thank you! I am very glad you are finding Cone useful.
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?
