Palette app, by PixelPerfect Apps, is a literal life saviour for all the design students and people who are in the designing field as a whole. It is a simple interface which lets you extract colours from any kind of image, whether the one from a public library or from your own album. The home page first provides you with an option of ‘take a photo’ and ‘choose from the library’ – choose or take a photo and go wild! If you are not able to download any photo from the internet, you can just copy the URL and paste it in the ‘open image URL’ box option.
Once you slide to the next tab, it shows a lot of colour-rich photos, which automatically gives you a ready-made palette, so that you don’t have to work hard to put together a nice and appealing colour palette; the app will do that for you. The next tab has favourites – photos, colours and palettes. You can save whatever photo, colours and palette you want, and all of it will show under this tab. The three dots at the top right corner contains settings, which has only one toggle – and that is of showing only major colours from the image. The other options there are ‘about us’, ‘rate’ and ‘share the app’, which are pretty self-explanatory.
All in all, everyone will agree that it is the simplest app, and actually the one which carries out whatever it promises to do. A boon for students and designers alike.

The app does exactly it promises to deliver – it recognises colours and presents the hex codes in front of you. The reviews all over the internet are full of praise for this app, with cheers given to the amazingly simple UI, the on-point information on the colours, and the fact that every ‘palette’ can be saved on phones or even in the app. It is also a good thing that one can extract a suitable colour spectrum to help brighten their works or projects – quite an inspiration, literally. When you don’t have a laptop with you and want to play around with colours – this app will help you get your work done.
‘Palette’ does have some drawbacks, which are usually cried about by people. The important problem that is not yet addressed by the app is only the code appears with the pictures and not the names of the colours. Let’s not forget the ads though; which can be removed by paying 30INR. It is not a feasible way, for most of the people anyway. The app doesn’t have a bad feature as such, because many of the complaints had been addressed over the years by the creators. However, according to me, there is something amiss about this app. It feels like it could do much better than it is doing currently. Sure, it gives the colours and everything, but there is a scope of making it even sleeker, precise and fun-to-use than it is now.
