Adobe releases new Kuler color-picking app for iPhone

adobe kuler

I guess the title could have read: “Adobe finally releases Kuler color-picking app for iPhone,” because the company announced it nearly 2 years ago. Adobe introduced the app as part of a suite of new touch-friendly applications back in October of 2011.

But better late than never. Kuler hit the App Store this morning as the color-picking app Adobe originally promised. You can capture colors using your iPhone’s camera, or previously downloaded photos, and you can create and save your own color themes…

From the App Store description:

“Adobe® Kuler lets you capture color inspiration anywhere you find it. Capture colors from a mural, garden, or wherever you happen to be with a snap of your iPhone camera. Browse, create, and customize themes for your designs – all on your phone.

Whether you’re a designer, artist, developer, hobbyist, craft maker, or just somebody who loves color, Kuler will transform your phone into the ultimate color inspiration tool.”

The cool part is that any color themes you create with the Kuler app can be synced to the Kuler website, which is an online community of sorts for color enthusiasts. They can also be used with other Adobe applications such as Illustrator and Adobe Ideas.

I’m not in any way, shape or form an artist, so I can’t really speak to Kuler’s functionality. But it looks sharp and appears to work as advertised. If you’d like to check it out for yourself, you can find Adobe Kuler in the App Store, for the iPhone, for free.
