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!
