Coolors 1.0 for iOS teaser

No matter if you’re designing a website, creating a brochure, writing a game or just messing around in creative apps like Adobe Illustrator or Pixelmator, the key to attracting your audience’s imagination is choosing the right set of colors.

While mobile and desktop applications aimed at artists and designers allow you to experiment with varied color palettes, setting RGB values manually can be a tedious task that gets old fast. What if there was a simpler way of generating endless color palettes on the go?

Coolors by Fabrizio Bianchi does just that!

The app is straightforward and couldn’t be simpler.

Just tap to generate a randomly generated color scheme. If satisfied with any specific color, tap on it to lock it and get nice matching palettes.

And should you want to set the color value manually, just tap on its hexadecimal value and enter a desired RGB color code.

You color palettes can be exported as PNG images, PDF documents or sent via email.

By copying the URL, the colors can be shared in blog posts on the web, with the link leading to the  Coolors.co website.

The web app has some more interesting features like SCSS and SVG exports. And if you create a login, you’ll be able to save color palettes on the website for later use.

The app weighs only 1.1MB and supports any iPhone, iPod touch or iPad with iOS 7.0 or later.

Grab Coolors free in the App Store.
