Palette is a powerful color picker and manager for jailbroken handsets

Whether you’re a graphic designer trying to make better use of the tools on your mobile handset or you’re a themer trying to get an exact color code from an image in your screen to make things match better, we’re excited to share a jailbreak tweak with you that could make your like so much easier.

Enter Palette, a newly released and free jailbreak tweak by TitanD3v that makes picking colors, gathering color codes, and managing color collecting easier than you could ever imagine on an iPhone or iPad.

After you’ve installed Palette, you can invoke a Status Bar based gesture to summon a color selection interface where you can either choose from a predefined list of colors, or you can take advantage of the color picker tool to locate and collect information about a specific color displayed by a specific pixel on your display:

Once selected, the interface lets you copy the color code in HEX, RGB, or other values, or you can save it to your collections for use later on.

Speaking of collections, Palette adds a new app icon to the Home Screen where you can manage all previously saved colors and gradients and do all sorts of graphic-friendly color management:
