There when you need it

I need to grab colors from various apps throughout the day to get their color values for CSS, and this app makes it easy to have the color picker available from a global shortcut that then copies the color value to my clipboard. This app is cleanly designed, provides the color value in four different formats, and the developer is extremely responsive. Six stars!

Exactly right

With so many color pickers on the app store, it's amazing that so many fail to deliver the right blend of functionality with a smooth and Mac-native UX. This one gets it exactly right. I had been using "HexColor" for years after it had become abandonware, and this picker has completely filled that need for me. Great work!

Simple and has HSL and LCH formats!

I've been frustrated with the color picker that I have been using for years. Went to search for one with LCH and HSL---Two formats I am thrilled to learn about!

All functions available on one panel which makes it easier to use as well.

Only issues I have are font sizes and that app icon. Maybe that last one will grown on me, but it looks like a color blob. I would maybe play around with single-color line scetches of "droppers" (of course using just one of them---hee) which would make it more identifiable.

Thank you!!

There is a setting to get larger text size for the inputs in the latest version. I’ll look into tweaking the app icon.
