[50% off launch sale] Drop is a delightful little color picker for developers and designers.
Pick a color and it will be copied in your preferred format. It's that easy.
> Zooming picker
Picking a one pixel border? No worries! You can freely zoom the picker in and out with your scroll wheel or trackpad.
Most color pickers (including Apple's) don't pick the exact color value because of reasons that we have to understand but you don't. Drop lets you pick the exact color by switching the color profile associated with the app you are picking from.
> Touch Bar
That's right, get quick access to all your colors right from your fancy new Touch Bar. It's the most convenient way to have quick access to your colors. Ever.
> Just the formats you use
Quickly switch between the common formats you are actually going to need your colors copied into: HEX, RGB, Swift UIColor, Swift NSColor, Objective-C UIColor, and Objective-C NSColor.
Save colors for later in your color palette.
This app was built with more TLC than you can even imagine. It's those little details that make all the difference.
> Get ready
We are just getting started. Tell us what you think so we can prioritize the most important features.
* Pixels used to look blurry or antialiased when you zoomed in with the picker. Fixed that! Should look crisp now.
* Objective-C code now um... actually compiles because we removed the commas. Sorry about that!
* All numbers in Objective-C and Swift are now decimals. Believe me, you want this.
Most Helpful Reviews
Awesome. - Just got my MBA with Touch Bar today, and Drop is working as advertised. Very slick, and a great little utility for a webdev to add to his arsenal. I haven’t dived in in depth yet, but it seems there’s no way to run the app purely headless (taskbar only) so that you can work with it when you need it without taking up space in your dock. It’d also be cool to see ‘bigger’ Touch Bar support in the future, such that your colors are paginated in the full app view, and can be scrolled horizontally in the Touch Bar. Great little app, guys!
Not Quite There - This application does accurately record colors, but has a terrible UX.

Works well, albeit not perfect - Sometimes, I need to know the exact color of a website and, to retrieve it, I typically dive into the code of the website. I was hoping to make this process more efficient, and to use this app instead. The app definintely gets the color code very close, albeit, not perfectly so. For example, just now, the app gives the color code #D0D0CA whereas the real color code on the website is #D0D0CB. Very close, but not 100%. If anyone knows an app that gets it 100%, please let me know!
Don’t waste your money on this - The app doesn’t support spaces or full screen mode, it doesn’t show the pixel separation when picking color, it doesn’t automatically remember your last color picks (only manually) and it doesn’t show you the color name. So much is missing which makes this app almost useless.
A competent picker with some frustrating fallbacks. - Drop has a very pretty UI and a wealth of information. Having UIColor values is occasionally useful. Unfortuantely, it's not Spaces-aware, and cannot detect colors on another screen. Also, in some cases, it doesn't seem to adjust for display or color profile variance — I've had intermittent color issues, but nothing serious. On the other hand, if you're looking to match colors for your programming project, it's a solid — pick.
Legit Color Picker - This app makes me want a TouchBar MacBook. How many apps out there make you want to drop 2 grand?
Needs to work with fullscreen mode and spaces - For this to be a usefull app it needs to work while applications are in fullscreen mode. I put in a feature request with the developer months ago...
