ColorSchemer Touch is out, and we have five copies to give away
The designers and color lovers among you may be familiar with ColorSchemer, or at least recall it from our coverage of the 2.0 release. Well, great news: ColorSchemer Touch is available on the App Store for iPhone and iPod touch! We have five copies to give away, so be sure to enter for your chance at the end of the post.
ColorSchemer Touch is designed to make color palette creation on your iPhone or iPod touch fast and simple. It offers four tools: a Color Wheel, LiveSchemes, PhotoSchemer and Spectrum. Color Wheel and Spectrum are what you'd expect, standard means of finding colors. LiveSchemes provides one of the coolest features of the desktop version; it allows you to set points on a spectrum wheel and link them together to see what the same combination of hues and saturations will do as you move them around the wheel. PhotoSchemer, which is also translated from the desktop version, allows you to pull colors from a photo or, in the case of the iPhone, a picture you take on the spot. It's great for saving palettes when you see them in real life.
ColorSchemer Touch is tightly integrated with the COLOURlovers website, which provides scads of palettes to browse, "Love" and comment on. You can add your own and interact with other people's work. It's a nice social take on the idea of palette creation.
ColorSchemer Touch is US$2.99 on the App Store. As I mentioned up top, we have five promo codes to hand out to lucky readers. If you'd like your own copy of ColorSchemer Touch for free, leave a comment below letting us know what you'd love to do with it. Good luck!
