GRScott's Review of ColorsquidReviewed on 3/10/20 1:53 PM
I only gave this 4 stars for now because I think there are a couple of things that are needing a change. Most important is the black background makes it hard to see the lables and read-outs of the buttons and sliders. On the possitive note, they are very fast and responsive to any email questions. And plan to fix the above problem. I used to use ColorSchemer Studio but they went out of business with any notification. So now finally, we have a very nice replacement….and maybe even better program for color schemes. Thank you

Thank you for developing this app, it is almost exactly what I was looking for. For this app to get all 5 stars there's only two features that I am missing. First feature, it would be nice to always show RGB value, right under Hex Value on the bottom right corner, instead of me clicking on "Copy As" button to get RGB values… Second feature, is the ability for this app to save my view so the next time I reopen it it will reopen exactly how I close it...

First, I find this app confusing to use. Sure, there’s not much that could be “confusing” about a color scheme app. Ture. However, this app seems to work the contrary than any other offline or online color scheme generator I’ve tried (…and I’ve tried at least a dozen). For example, when I selectthe “Mono” option, I get five swatches to appear on the right side. I dare to assume (for some reason) that “mono” implies monochromatic colors (as opposed to a mono audio source). But at this point I can have various hues to appear on the right side. So how can a monochromatic color scheme contain reds, blues, and purples? Furthermore, let’s say I select my main color to be green, select the “Mono” option, and drag the little dots in the color selector all the way to the top right. Since my main color is green, the top right color of the color wheel (the square area) will be fully saturated green, and so the little circles should also be green-ish. But no. They all turn to black. HUH!? Why? To go further, I select “Tetrads” and now I have 20 circles on the circular color wheel. I get that each option (mono, complments, triads, tetrads) can have five colors and that makes 20, but I only selected the “Tetrads” option, so instead of 5 swatches, I should have only four little circles. But I have twenty. That’s just really confusing. I can’t tell which is the compliments, the triads, tetrads, and monos. My second issue: have you tested this app on a Mac mini using a monitor with 2560 x 1440 resolution? I find it highly odd that a color scheme generator app (which is about colors!) have a UI that is impossible to see! The Mac mini does not have a retina output. Maybe on retina screens on a laptop this app looks great, but on a non-retina monitor at 2560 x 1440 the UI is barely visible. I literally had to put my nose so close to the monitor that it almost touched it, in order to see what the label says. Yes, I know you can make at least a dozen jokes about it, but I am neither blind nor require glasses or contacts (at least not yet). So my vision is “acceptalbe” - I’d say. The UI labels are literally so dark and so tiny at this resolution that good luck reading it! The fact that I work in a dark environment is one thing. I have no idea how would someone see the interface in a place where the location is lit by natural light - as they refer to bright offices/rooms.

Know what you’re doing and get this bad boy.
Stinkykong's Review of ColorsquidReviewed on 3/10/20 1:53 PM
Setting colors in the color mixer is insanely tedious and very difficult to figure out. Documentation does not explain the process at all even though it is mentioned, the actual process is not described in any way. What makes it much worse is that their support it absolutely unresponsive. No reply at all after multiple contacts even asking if they ever reply to their support requests. No response at all. I find this very difficult to use and am hugely disappointed. To enter a desired hexidecimal value, you must select a box, add the 6 digits, hit enter which brings up an OS-like window, then use the eyedropper tool to connect that color into the mixer box. Way, way too many steps when all one should need to do is select a box and enter the hexidecimal value. Also, hexidecimal is the only value you can enter, although the app does show a reading of the HSB and RGB values, you just can't enter those values other than by dragging the slider.

All the other color scheme/wheel apps on the App Store seem to be dead. This one get updates, works without crashing and the devs answer support mails. In my opinion currently the only color schemer worth using.

Wouldn’t want to miss this app now that I use it on an almost daily basis.
