    Does anyone know if there is an app in the App Store that has a Photoshop-like color picker for getting hex codes? I would use something like this when I'm doing CSS coding, for example when the client says he wants the box to be yellow I can pull up this app and click on the yellow swatch I want and it gives me the hex code for it. I've seen lots of color apps in the store, but it's hard sometimes to tell exactly what they do and how they work. If anyone has any info on an app like this I would appreciate it!

    Thanks! I hadn't seen that one before. I'll check it out.
    Has anyone tried ColorPicker? Just wondering if it would be any good.

    Looks like a lot of people don't have opinions on this subject. Must be that they're busy getting the free promo codes that this forum has become a venue for.

    I digress....

    I believe ColorPicker came out after colorSutra. I looked at it but it didn't give me anything new.

    Seems like if you are needing to know just the hex values, ColorPicker would give you that in a simple interface.
    I like the extras with colorSutra. The ability to save the color, for one. Complimentary colors are fun also. Seems to be more control as far as exact picking of color/shade...light/dark, ect.

    If you are primarily interested in finding a hex value for a color or dialing in a hex and then seeing the color, ColorPicker gets you there faster.

    ...I have no clue as to the accuracy of either app.
