Edit: I understand the free version let's you choose pantone colors, what I'm referring to is the function to convert hex or rgb to Pantone solid coated colors. That feature is locked behind a subscription now and seriously disrupts my workflow. Manually choosing colors by eye and then importing it into my editing program, only to find it's not quite the right shade I want, is incredibly inefficient. Starting with rgb then to Pantone is far quicker. Free trial is great but temporary.

The app was free during its beta trial. It was never meant to be a perpetual free app, but we sincerely apologize if we failed to communicate this clearly. We continue to offer freemium access with a 30-day trial to our premium features. With our community's support, we can continue servicing and providing future enhancements.
