Great color capturer as it is almost equal to specifically made color calibrating /capturing tools without the high cost. It has great adjustments to adjust for color constancy issues. U can adjust the capture by adding light or dark to color. Artist need access to tools like this & not be priced out like many art supplies. Great for matching reference colors or matching specific colors on designs. One negative, I wish it had Munsell color space, but other than that it's an awesome app.

I work in graphic design and have used 100's of apps and programs. I rarely do any ratings and/reviews. I feel the need to preface this with above information, to provide context. To demonstrate I have a familiarity with these applications. 'Color Grab'.... In terms of its intended purpose to find, match, etc. colors, is unbeatable! Accuracy, speed, other extras ..... the best. Superlative. I don't know anyone in the company. I have no relation, or obligation......... You get it right?

None of the color apps will calibrate the white balance like this one. So thankful for this feature! But I don't trust it -- Obvious programming issues. Big Issue: W Reference results should not be different if camera WB is changed! The whole point of using a W Ref is to get around WB & ambient light color. Wish: Option to select region for W Ref. Yes, it's more accurate when directly adjacent but rare that a Ref is adjacent to a color we're checking, out of a studio
