My Color for iPhone review
My Color, developed by Shintarou Kinoshita, is a simple and functional eyedropper tool that allows you to select colours from images and save them.
For images, you can either pick an existing photo or – if you have an iPhone – take one with the built-in camera. Then, touch anywhere on the image to pinpoint a colour.
When you touch the screen, a magnified circle appears so you can get a precise selection. The magnified circle is offset above your finger to make it easy to see exactly what you’re pointing at. As you move around the image, My Color updates the colour selection, which displays as a swatch as well as RGB and HEX numbers.
Once you’ve got the colour you want, you can save it within the app for later use. My Color also allows you to adjust the brightness of images with a simple slider bar and save them to your photo library.
It would have been really useful to be able to select colours from websites as well as photos. Also, it would have been nice to be able to email your saved colours. Still, My Color does do exactly what it claims to do – make it very easy to select colours from a picture and save their RBG and HEX numbers.
