Palettes is a powerful iOS productivity tool for creating and maintaining color palettes. Turn your iOS device into a portable color creation tool. Now you can create a color palette anywhere at anytime. Great for creating color schemes. Grab colors from a photograph, a website, or add colors using any one of 5 color models. Quickly find matching colors with support for many different color schemes.

Palettes comes in one of three levels: Free, Basic, and Pro. The Free version can be upgraded from directly within the application to the other levels giving you greater functionality. When you first install Palettes you get the Pro level for free. After a limited number of launches of Palettes you will automatically revert back to the Free level. You can upgrade to another level at any time before or after this demo period.

Palettes Pro is also available directly. This version has exactly the same functionality as Palettes upgraded to the Pro level.

On App Store Palettes version 9.1 is now available in the App Store.
