Easiest 5-star rating ever

I submitted an earlier 4-star rating that basically said "great app; one bug, contacted the developer and there hasn't been time for him to get back to me". Later that same day I got an answer and a solution (my error, not his). Consider this the current review.

With that said, I'd consider this an essential app for web development. Color palette management has always been a series of compromises for me, but no more. If you have any knowledge of basic color theory at all (and even if you don't, truth be told) you'll be pleasantly surprised at what you’re able to do with ease. The WCAG color checking is worth the price of admission right there. I've got a bunch of color apps. This is the one I use.

This app needs two more features...

I like the way this app works! It's very fun just to experiment with and play around in. After only 10 minutes of having the app open, I've come across a missing feature that is make this app challenging to intergrate into my workflow fulltime, even just in this short amount of time...

Drag and Drop... This would make it possible for the work i'm doing within the app to be transferable to the program I am working in at that time. Pallets aside, drag and drop is borderline a must with what I am doing.

For anyone who's looking at this app, the colors ARE drag and droppable into the pallets menu, so if that is enough for you then awesome! But you can not drag outside of the application. This is a minor short coming, but for $10 I feel like not having the system wide drag and drop is a bit of a let down...

I also feel like this app needs window height adjustment and full screen support as well. It would be really nice to be able to see all 30 swatches in the list on my bigger screens!

That being said, as a color-theory aid, this is excellent and I am already comfortable zipping around the interface.

Great App

This app has saved me tons of time. Working with colors is usually a challenge, as the tools that I'm used to using are too presumptive and/or limited in functionality. However this app delivers. It's a breath of fresh air created by someone who has clearly gone through the same experience that I have in working with colors and solved it for not only themselves but everyone else too. Kudos.
