Neon is a real-time and fast color picker for your iOS Device. With Neon you can simply point your iOS Device anywhere you like and save the color for sharing or for later use. Maybe you liked that wall color at the restaurant or you're witnessing a gorgeous sunset with Neon you can now capture those exotic colors and save them for later use.

Introducing Tiles in Neon!
Tiles is a brand new way of sharing your gradients and colors with users from around the world and viewing through captures by others!
You can follow your friends or view interesting profiles from around the world.
You can register on tiles in just a tap and immediately start sharing your captures.
If you view a capture that you like you can appreciate the post by double-tapping on it. You can also view the gradient/color in its entirety or save it to your library! It's really cool.
Simply tap the grid icon on the home screen to get started. Looking forward to building a community on Neon!

This update brings FIVE widgets for iOS 14 users!
-Color Widget: View a color from your capture library
-Gradient Widget: View a gradient from your capture library
-Random Color Widget: View a random color. Updated regularly
-Random CSS Color Widget: View a random CSS/Web color. Updated regularly.
-Random Gradient Widget: View a random gradient. Updated regularly

Once you tap on the camera button you’ll be provided with two choices
*Single Color picker that lets you pick one color.
*Linear Gradient maker that asks you to choose two colors will be mixed to form a gradient.

Neon contains an analyzer that lets you understand the captured colors in depth. With support for RGB, CMYK, HSL, Closest Hex and color name Neon is super a super powerful tool that fits into the palm of your hands.

If you want to spice things up a little you can tap the flame icon and choose to generate either random colors or random gradients. These random items are presented in the form of cards that you can swipe from bottom to the top to advance through the pile of 100 randomly generated color/gradient cards. If you like a card simple tap on it to add it to your saved colors/gradients and proceed as you’d if you’d have captured the color using the camera picker.

A Gradient or Color once captured can be shared in many ways. It can also be shared directly to your Instagram story as a background of a story or as a sticker that you can place anywhere. You also have the option to share the Hex code of the color or the hex codes of the gradients with your friends or maybe your interior decorator to let them bring that favorite shade of teal to your walls.

With Neon, you can also make pin-point edits to your captured colors or gradients using a very efficient algorithm that is both fast and is not at all power-hungry. Neon is fully integrated with iCloud sync which means the colors and gradients that you capture or edit on one device will appear on all your iOS devices within seconds. This feature requires an active internet.

If you’d like to you can also let the app access your location to Geo-Code your scans so that, in case you forget where you captured that shade of red from you can just glance at the home screen and find out exactly that.

The next time you liked that shade of purple all you have to do is open neon, capture, save, analyze, edit and share. It's that easy.

Unable to pick specific areas

Update: The developer added the ability to tap a specific point in an image to sample.

Second update: initially I didn’t realize it did display RBG and HSL values because it’s not displayed in the initial sampling data. You have to actually save the color to your library. Which is a little clunky and unintuitive.

Hard to tell from the description and screenshots. But you can’t tap to pick a specific area of an image and get the color data.

It only pulls the most significant colors from the image. Definitely not helpful for my purposes.

Developer Response ,

Really sorry :(
This has been on my roadmap forever and the next update will bring tagging to the colors and the ability to pick colors from any part of the image. Sorry for not being able to meet your expectations. Hopefully the next update will rectify the error. Thank you for using Neon.

Needs To Improve Functionality

My rating would've been higher if I was actually able to use the app. The app itself seems amazing and as an artist I would use it daily if the option was available. I was only able to try the features a couple times before the pop up came up saying that if I would like to continue I needed to purchase Neon Pro to be able to capture unlimited colors and gradients. To put out a free app and then make the users pay for the main feature is ridiculous. If you want someone to buy your app, make it $1.99 to download it instead.
Making the Image Pallet Stickers, Alternate App Icons, and Random Gradients behind a pay wall makes sense, they're additions that won't take away from the main function, the apps purpose, and the apps general functionality.
The ICloud Sync feature I feel shouldn't be behind a pay wall either, it's a complete pain, but at least it doesn't make it unusable and pointless to download.
If you were to put additional captures behind ad walls so for instance watching an ad and then getting 5 more captures, I would definitely continue using your app. It would be a bit of a pain to some, but I don't mind watching ads for apps that I love to use and serve their purpose(especially ones that do it well).
If you ever decide to update your app and make it more functional, I would love to use it again. I think it has a lot of potential and would be very helpful to many artists like myself.

Developer Response ,

Sorry. You need to look away from your privilege and realize there’s a major time cost involved in making these apps. Nothing is free. The free version is only meant to act as a trial for converting users to the full version. If I give away the main feature of the app for free there is 0 incentive for anyone to buy the pro version. Thanks for your lovely star rating. Have a wonderful day.

Really fast and unique features

Just discovered this app and really enjoying it as it’s different from some others I’ve used in the past. Particularly like the automatic gradient feature using the camera, super slick. Keep up the awesome work!

Thank you so much!
