Developers and Designers Finally get the Color Picker They Need in Drop

| Cool Stuff Found

Your Mac’s built-in color picker is fine, but doesn’t feel like it was cerated with coders and designers in mind. Tapity’s coding team thought that was unfortunate, so they whipped up Drop—a color picker that fits the bill for both coders and designers. Drop lets you sample and save on-screen colors as Hex, RGB, Swift or Objective C values for mobile and desktop formats. You can save color values to Drop’s built-in palette, copy them to the clipboard, and create colors without first sampling them. It also lets you store color swatches on the new Retina MacBook Pro’s Touch Bar for easy access. Drop is currently available for 50% off at US$3.99 on Apple’s Mac App Store.

  1. “Developers and Designers Finally get…” ?!

    Normally I try not to be “that guy”, but this headline is irksome. I’ve been using a superlative color picker, ColorSnapper 2, for years. In addition to sampling and outputting all of the formats mentioned here (Hex, RGB, Swift or Objective C) it also gives you Generic, CSS, NSColor, UIColor, Android, Java, .NET, CGColor, OpenGL, and Adobe Foreground and Background colors.

    I’m sure the reviewed product is fine, but it’s portrayed as the sole long-awaited solution and that just isn’t right.

    First, the links in the story are wrong. The first opens to a Barnes & Noble page the second will open this page again.

    I have been using Art Directors Toolkit for many years. I began using it on an old PowerBook G4 when a version came already loaded. When I upgraded to an Intel-based iMac I purchased the program.
