Perfect - exactly what I was looking for! - Went through about five different apps on the App Store and Specturm was EXACTLY what I needed for web design work. It's a beautiful, simple app - lets you put together a color palette (with as many colors as you need, unlike the web apps like colourlovers / kuler which limit you to 5). You can create palettes easily through the built-in color picker or direct RGB/HSL/HEX entry, get quick access to the hex codes (perfect for CSS), and as a nice little bonus, you can even generate palettes from images. Great little app -- suggested for any type of digital designer!
Used to love it, now it crashes. Unusable - Please fix. I used to use this app all the time. Now I cannot. On previous latest release of OS X and on the very latest macOS Sierra this app crashes so much that it is unusable.

Awesome - The bug has been resolved. This is the best color palette manager on macOS. I use this in iOS and Web devleopment to create and manage my color palletes. I've even used this tool to generate bulk color palettes for work projects.
Fantastic! - This app is the best of its kind in the entire app store. Look no further. The latest update took a long time, but the crashing bug is finally gone.
Best of Breed - This is definitely one of the best apps in the Mac App Store. Best of Breed. Blue Ribbon. Simple, clean, tasteful, DISCOVERABLE. Not 100% perfect but well into the range between 90% and 99%. Great at getting a finite number of good colors from an image.
App is clever, but lacks power user features and better interoperability with HTML - The app is really well-designed and overall super functional. Granted, some of the features are difficult to discover, but all in all the app ended up suiting my needs. For anyone looking to import colours based on HTML hex code, you'll need to display the Color Inspector by pressing Command-T.
