I must have purchased just about every Mac colour picker in existence and most are a let down, every time I come back to Sip. You could really do with having a free trial so we can try it out before purchasing. Having said that I still purchased it 😆

@ryan_roberts1 what's your take? As much as I enjoy Sip, there are a ton of wonky UI issues that still bug me.

@jeremybeasley I went back to using Sip even though it's buggy like you say. Colormate is a nice small app but I found it awkward to use for color palette compared to Sip.

What's up guys! I made Colormate because I wanted a more minimal color picker that still had color editing and palette management. Some tips: * Hit ⌘ to go to your Recents/Palettes. * You can use the scroll wheel for the color sliders. * Hold shift to pick multiple colors. Thanks for checking it out! UPDATE (5/30): PickIt has been renamed to Colormate and has moved from Gumroad to the Mac App Store. For those of you who bought Colormate as PickIt from Gumroad, I am working on a way to help you migrate to the Mac App Store version without having to buy it again (I will email you guys via Gumroad).

@serobinson111 Quick suggestion for you, how about showing the latest colour in the manu bar icon? [edit] and dark mode support ;)

Have purchased and started using. Generally decent, but needs a global shortcut to really be useful for me.

@serobinson111 Is this a native app or Electron?

@deimos I had a look in the package contents and it appears to be Electron. Feels quite light and fast though.

@maker Super nice looking and really clean UX! …But It doesn’t seem to work with external displays. Are there any settings I’m missing?
