Color Picker, the utility application, designed for all Cocoa developers and application designers. An efficient color picker, for professionals, who care about optimizing their workflow and speed up their process.

With Color Picker, you can choose any color from everywhere on your screen using the magnifier and selecting your desired pixel. Then a preview of the color, its Hexadecimal, RGB value, NSColor and UIColor is displayed.
You can copy the code with a single click, drag 'n drop or use the new shortcuts to paste it into your source code.

Color Picker has now become even better.

- With the new Menubar option, you can quickly access your recently copied or recently saved colors.
- The magnifier tool is instantly displaying a preview of the color. (HEX or RGB)
- Drag and drop your code from the application to any program you are working on. (e.g. Xcode)

Additionally, the app can read any HEX or RGB values that you might type and show you the corresponding color and code.

Last but not least, Color Picker gets you out of trouble remembering the colors you used, as it contains a library, where you can store the colors for any use in the future, simply by dragging the preview box to the library.

Especially for developers is now given the chance of Zero suppression, where they can remove redundant zeroes from the float numbers, as well as appending a semicolon in the source code.

Key Features:
- Touch bar integration
- Added menubar icon
- Added recently saved and copied colors
- Code is draggable to other apps (e.g. Xcode)
- HEX or RGB value showing in the magnifier
- Retina support
- Pick up any color using the new built-in magnifying glass tool
- Save as many colors in the library for future use.
- Copy the format you need for your source code (e.g. NSColor, UIColor, HEX, RGB)

Color Picker requires macOS 10.10 or later

Color Managment - There are a plethera of color pickers. There are few that have the ability to create groups of color for a specific clients or projects. This one does. For that alone it is worth the price. It is also clean and intuative. It allows quick access from the menu bar. Great little app. Does what is needed.

Nice App, But... - I wish I could save color pallettes for individual projects.

Excellent tool - Does exactly what I need it to do. Stays out of my way. The ability to copy UIColor initialisers for ObjC and Swift is awesome. The color palette saver is also nice.\

Couldn’t live without it! - This is a great app. As a UX/UI designer, I use it constantly — it’s a great companion to Sketch and especially when I’m working in CSS. Note to the dev team: I’d like to be able to save sets of swatches as a palette and access it again later. Thanks!

Version 1.5.0
Review by Jbphelps

Incredibly simple and easy to use - This is coming from a new developer, so ive never used any apps or programs of this type before. One thing I never knew I would need is a good color dropper for finding and using colors I liked from other apps, or even photos I come across. To use this app, you simply open the application, and click on the magnifying glass icon. This then creates a small circular space with a crosshair-like point in the middle that will read out the colros as you hover over them. From here you can click and save the color, which will then give you borh RGB and HEX values for whichever use you please! To the devs, thank you for making this! As a new developer, I’ve learned that finding software that works and is simple can be difficult when you have no experience.

Review by theBrenwell

Now we are getting there - I finally feel like I can use this app. The multi-monitor plague made this ColorPicker to frustrating to use. I am glad to see that this bug has finally been squashed. The only downside is, transitioning from one monitor to another freezes the mouse for approx 1 sec before it continues into the new screen. However one can live with it. Feature request, please either combine the rgb values into one field or provide a copy button. Scenario - I have chosen a color with the mouse, I see the rgb color code and I would love to click copy, however I have to either drop the mouse and use the easily forgettable shortcut cmd+R or nvaigate into the menubar. Perhaps this is alrady possible, if so feel free to tell me @Brenwell Thanks for the app
