Coolors Comments & Reviews 2022


I’m an illustrator who has always been in love with designing color and making color palettes. Coolers makes creating delicious palettes quick and easy! I am obsessed with the generate button to help me get started on palettes I wouldn’t have ordinarily have come up with on my own. There is a huge array of tools to help collect the perfect tones, shades, and vibrancy. The new update is BRILLIANT. Minimalist design, total palette adjustments and color blind corrections??? I don’t know what I did before Coolers, thank you for this app.

- Super annoying sign in process

You need to click on a link in an email to make your account. The page where you enter your email and send the email to yourself is not the same. They do not helpfully confirm what email address the email is sent to. And even more annoyingly, if the email didn’t arrive in your inbox, you don’t know if you should then go through the sign in or login process. Super frustrating. It would be possible for the app to save ONE color palette for you to have a good first time experience but nope...any palette saving functionality is only possible after you create an account.

- Doesn't work

I would have given it 5 stars if it worked! I think this must be a problem with my device, others seem to have no troubles with this app, but at the same time, I don't think it's my device at all because all my other apps work amazing. I have an iPhone 6S for reference. The problem is, the Explore tab has a loading sign but NEVER loads. Even if I wait over 5 minutes. I cannot access anything more on this app then the color pallet maker. I can't save my pallets either, because I cannot sign in to Coolors! When I try, it just tells me "An error has occurred. Please try again." but I've tried over 10 times. It's been weeks and this problem still persists.

- Love it- Just needs 1 thing!

I love how easy it is to use the Coolors app! I just need one change- to be able to shuffle my completed palettes around so I can see them in any order. It seems to default to oldest on bottom? Also if I could easily rearrange the color order on a saved palette without having to save a duplicate that would be great! Thanks!

- Color me impressed....

I’m creating my first Word Press site and this app does more than I imagined I needed. It’s intuitive, copies color codes, saves palettes, lets you create lists and sends you your lists in any format you choose (PDF, etc.) for easy reference and more... And it is addicting... if you need color palettes, this one is the best!

- So confused

I love this app in theory but a major issue I had with the website was not being able to locate an existing “favorites” tab or section where i could view all the colors I had been saving to my favorites. It seems ridiculous that there would be the option to add colors to your favorites but then not have a place to view them. I didn’t expect this issue to continue into the paid version, but it did and it’s very annoying and will probably prevent me from using it.

- Love it, but...

I really love this app, it works amazingly, super fast, awesome colors. but on the website you can push the space bar on your keyboard an it would change the palette, but on the app you cant, and i really liked that, it might of been one of the main reasons I bought the app. Kinda sad, but its still an extraordinary app, who knows, maybe that’ll change in an update...

- I LOVE IT but..

I started by using the website and was so in love that I payed for the app. I do not regret it but I do think that the website had more options available like the color information and all of the extras with the color (color blindness, text appearance, contrast, etc) and I cannot use those on the app. Other than this, I use the app to paint all the time and really enjoy it !

- Just the BEST color palette app

Professional designer, this app is a godsend. Its intuitive, easy to use, fast, and develops beautiful palettes. I use it all the time when working in Photoshop or Illustrator, more than any other apps. Super glad I found it. Really cool that they also have a complimentary website.

- Worth Every Penny!

I am an illustrator that uses an iPad mini 3. I have to say that this app is worth every penny! It works SO well with my device and works with all my illustrating apps. As someone who draws A LOT, I always use this app. It’s great for professionals and beginners too. I REALLY recommend this app.

- Amazing App

This app is absolutely wonderful especially after being updated. I love all the options it has and how it can “translate” colorblindness as well! It also works with procreate pretty seamlessly. 11/10 would recommend

- it’s really good for digital work

I really like this app i wish it was free though... i don’t understand the need to pay for this? but it’s really good for digital artwork which is how i use it :) i would recommend to purchase

- Amazing app

this app is very useful when you want to create something but you don’t have the exact colors you want. it is easy to use and has various color pallets to choose from!


Love love love the Coolors app!! I’ve been using the online one for over a year new and it amazing new features. I just bought this app for the iPhone without a second thought. It is a MUST HAVE for all designers.

- Needs instructions

Seems like a great app but it is not user friendly. I’m not sure what all the options in the settings do and there’s no instructions in the app. A quick little instruction bubble on the screen for various buttons / settings would be a great improvement.

- Holy wow, mega upgrade colorgasm!

As someone who struggles with choosing good color combinations, I’ve found Coolors very helpful but the service and app became increasingly buggy. Well the new update is beyond awesome. Everything I need in a fun, easy, breezy, ui that tickles my ux. Bravo!

- straight up NEED for creatives

Best app for brainstorming palettes! Best app for randomly generating colors when your stuck! Im an illustrator/designer using this for every project I tackle. Gets me going with a starting point to tackle that blank-page fear

- App stopped letting me sign in

Love this app but recently it stopped letting me sign in so I couldn’t use the features I paid for. I also wish there was a way to get some ratios of the colors which would be useful for artists. (Like how much color should be used, 60% green and %40 blue etc. etc.)

- Great for work or just for fun!

A great tool when browsing and/or creating custom color schemes all in one app! 10/10 would recommend!

- Great App, wish it supported keyboards in iPad

Title says it all. This is an incredibly helpful app, but feels a little slower than the web interface because I can’t use the keyboard to quickly generate new palettes. Otherwise awesome.

- Refund?

Okay- the title sounds wrong but, My dumb and stupid self accidentally bought this, (i’m not saying it’s a bad app) Is it possible that you can refund me? Thanks for reading this, ^^.

- Great App

Very useful. With this app I finally got some colors that make my software’s UI shine! Feature suggestion: ability to name colors within a pallet. E.g. I’d like to name my colors things like “text-foreground”, “photo-shadow”, “button-highlighted”, etc. Also, I’d like to see a more full featured Apple Watch app. That you made one at all is awesome. But I’d love to see more of the iOS features in the watchOS version. Very nice app!

- 🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨

This app is super awesome pretty much perfect 👌🏼 Request: a 3D Touch shortcut for the camera and maybe another dedicated button on the generator screen

- Color wheel

This is a good app but it makes no sense that a color wheel is nowhere to be found. Finding a color in a color wheel rather than searching through countless palettes would be so much more efficient.

- Love this app.

I had this on my pc and d enjoyed it once I got my tablet it was the first app that I downloaded.

- I absolutely adore this app

I’m a character artist and these pallets are amazing for my work and are super helpful!

- Good potential, confusing UI

I like the functionality of the app, but the navigation is very awkward... hard to figure out where the menu and library are, or when I’m making vs viewing a palette

- Not 4x5 crop??

I’m a photographer Who got this app to use for posting on Instagram but for some reason they decided not to include the dimensions that Instagram requires for photos (4x5) as part of their options to crop. This makes any photo I want to use from this app basically worthless to me. :(

- I like it!

I enjoy using this app and the new updates!

- Error

i cant even make an account. it says “an error has occurred. please try again” every time i try. my connection is fine. really hoping i didn’t waste money on this app because i was looking forward to it.

- Useless

No instructions for something that should be simple. So as far as I can tell it does nothing. Requires an account after paying. Am frustrated enough after only a few minutes that I'm returning this.

- Great app

Absolutely love this app! Would highly recommend.

- 🌈

I’m soooo excited that you’re still updating, I love this app!

- So easy, so cool.

Great for color schemes. Perfect.

- Love this app ! But...

Love this app ! But it always logs me out between uses and forgets my login details. No issues otherwise (:

- Can’t login

Was so excited to use this app, but I am extremely disappointed. For some reason I can not login and I’ve tried many times. Since I can not login, I can not save my palettes. Please fix this!

- Alright

It’s an alright app for what it does, but it signs me out every other time that I use it

- Account required

Account creation is required to do anything useful after already paying for app.

- Good but....

You need an internet connection to export palettes to other apps and to save files. Why?

- Can’t sign in

Just downloaded and went to save and I cannot sign in. It just continues to just load

- I wasted my money

It’s to complicated of an app. Why did I waste my money for well glad it was only 3 bucks but dang it

- Horrible

No directions on how to use. No reply to developers Don’t waste your money

- Whoaaaa

Color heaven

- Perfect tool for artists, but I have one request.

This tool really is the best for graphic designers and art students! I sometimes struggle with creating color palettes that have harmony, I understand all the principles but there’s some disconnect that makes it hard for me to make appealing color choices. I’ll often have one or two colors I know that I want to use but then get lost when deciding what colors would match. I’d waste hours fiddling with colors. I would eventually decide I hate what I have, trash it, then do some color theory research, and try again. Rinse and Repeat. It’s a frustrating cycle, especially for busy art student. That’s where this tool comes in handy! All you have to do is plug in the colors you know you want, and cycle through colors generated until you find ones you like. I also realize that this might feel like cheating, at first I felt awkward about using it because I shouldn’t need a tool (blame my artistic pride). However, after I saw several of my professors recommend using the cite and as I kept using it myself, I began to see how absolutely intuitive and useful the program is. You can use the generator to help you get close to the colors you want to stick with, then alter each color in any way you’d like. It provides you with the closest color match with marker colors and every digital color matrix you could think of. The generator gives the artist total control, the only thing the cite/app is doing is speeding up your own color picking process drastically. I just want to thank the creator for making this, and for putting it on the web for free. Honestly, the biggest reason I bought the app was to give what little thanks I could, plus I thought it might streamline my process further. This leads to my request, the app is very useful, don’t get me wrong, but I was very disappointed in one thing. When I’m typing a hex into the pallet, it won’t allow me to paste a color from my MacBook. I still like to fiddle with the colors I often throw them back into the generator after I’ve seen them on my project and edited them myself, on the website this was a breeze, even from my phone to my computer. However, I can’t do this same thing on the app. If it’s possible I would love if something like that could be allowed?

- Regret buying

Insane that I have to create an account to save hex values

- Kaylene Ciman


- Doesn’t export through procreate


- Gud


- A Creator’s Must Have

If you’re constantly creating but need to come up with a color scheme and don’t want to spend days searching for colors that fit together in scheme, this app is for you. Artists, digital designers, interior designers, print. Any activity that needs colors to be generated and the output is given in any format you want, this is a must have. I rarely review things but I realized today just how heavily I’ve depended on the 100% free tool so I have no idea what the reviews about payments is about but this lets you create a profile and save your palettes/schemes free of charge. Don’t waste your time with the other freemium stuff here. Need a color generator? It’s Coolors or endless frustration.

- Disappointed

I don’t leave reviews good or bad so this what I am doing here is unprecedented. I excitedly downloaded your app on March 22nd . I was more than happy to purchase the app as I had a very fantastic experience with your website. However, I was soon very disappointed when I realized that you did not have the opinion to upload pictures onto the app to create palettes as you have on the website. This particular feature is why I paid money to download your app because while there are similar websites that offer your service. I had not seen any that are 1) apps and 2) allow for photo upload. To say I am severely disappointed that this is similar for your app is an understatement. As someone who works predominantly from my phone something that I thought would be a fantastic purchase and investment turned out to be a waste of money I could have used elsewhere. I wish I could get a refund, but I am sure that’s not a possibility. So all I can do is have faith that this specific feature is available soon. Hopefully, I won’t have to delete the app and consider the money lost. Ps. I sent this same message to your feedback desk on March 22nd. It’s now March 25th and no one has responded to my feedback. Hence why I sent this review here.

- A colour-lover’s dream come true

To all artists, aestheticists, anyone, you need to get this app. It’s amazing.

- Excellent, helpful App

The App is extremely easy to use & 'suggests' colour palettes you may not have normally considered. Very happy with my purchase & I will definitely be using it on my next visit to the fabric store. There is just one suggestion I would make to the developer .. the ability, if possible, to take a photo of a colour, load it to the App & have the App generate a matching colour palette

- An App for Your Design

Peppermint spoilt me with it's different features, as well as giving me the ability to know the name of a specific colour. Coolor is more up to date with iOS but contains less features, no library of colour standards+names and no interactive colour wheel! At least, none I can see at the moment. In a nutshell, this app is a vintage room renovated to fit with a house of modern architecture (iOS 10), but the furnitures have not been moved in. Before this, I was using an app called Peppermint Colour Wheel. That app was also a colour scheme app, with image uploading, a colour library with colour names from various different places (even having Pantone Codes for colours) The only problem with that app was that it wasn't as compatible to iOS as it was before, even giving me the warning everytime I opened it saying the App is slowing down my iPhone. Thefore, I had to change the app I was using because that app seemed to have lost support a while ago

- Pass on this one

This app is not even optimised for the latest iOS devices. Save yourself some money and use the web app for free. No updates in 3 years for a paid app, shameful.

- Needs tweaking

Overall nice simple app, but offers less than site version. I only got the app because the site didn’t like that my iPad doesn’t have a space bar. Not being able to copy hex codes is annoying and I wish I could set filters like a mono pallet.

- Simple and easy to use.

I have never before found a colour app as great at this one. The colour schemes are easy to generate and give an amazing range of choices. I rate Coolors 5 out of 5 paint brushes!

- Makes generating colour schemes easy

Easy to use

- Great idea; works well

Very helpful for developing online colour schemes for websites. Quick, easy to use. More options to adjust colours (rather than replace) would be good.

- Add more numbers

Thinking 5 might be too less or too much, adjust ing how many colours bars you want in a palette would be great

- Pretty decent

Greatly designed app! I just wish I could have more than five colours than it would be perfect! Keep up the good work!

- I love it!

Absolutely fantastic app, thank you!

- amazing, helpful app!

the app is super helpful! all the palettes that you can generate are beautiful as well!

- Can’t copy hex codes?

Would be nice to have the ability to copy paste hex codes.

- Nice and simple

Does a great job for what it is. Good stuff

- Nice touch

Very convenient!

- Love it

This is exactly what I’ve been searching for. An app that allows you save colour combinations with the Hex code attached, plus generates for you. Also has attached with palettes information which is brilliant. I’m impressed - Thankyou !

- I.LOVE.IT!!!!!!!

- Please Add Contrast Ratio

The APP is amazing, please add the contrast ratio to the app so we can compare the contrast to see whether it’s above 4.5 ratio that passes accessibility test.

- Worth paying for

I felt like paying for such a simple app was kind of a rip off when buying it. But if your like me and picking your own colours ruins your projects, this app is absolutely worth paying for. I can’t wait for my next project to not look like I coloured it with an 8 pack of crayons.

- Amazing!

So easy to use and such a valuable tool to help with colour palette decisions for my projects. I will be using this a lot. Thank you!

- Perfect for UX design

I am a student going into digital design and this app is perfect for making anything digital! From working in computer science to designing websites this app is simplistic easy to use and has all the features I could want and more!

- Gradients

I can do gradients on the desktop but not on app. Can we get this added so it’s easier to work on the go?

- It's a niche kind of app, but also useful

I use it to find color palettes for my paintings, idk if this is what the creators were going for, but it's what I went with. It's saving feature is also a blasting, as well as be the sharing feature, allowing me to see other palettes from other people.

- Beautiful refresh bringing parity with web version

Awesome update that brings feature parity with the web. Super smooth interface. Only wish we could export colours to code palettes!

- Gradients?

I bought the app because I’m an art major going into college soon, I know the website has a gradient creation option... so I’m just wondering if that will be added or if I’m absolutely blind and just can’t find it on the app? If it isn’t then that would be all that should be added and it’d be perfect so far.

- Simple and Spot on!

It just generates colour pallets, and it does it perfectly. You can put in colours according to their hex value or mess with CMYK or RGB or let it generate colours for you! Easy to use, clean design. Only criticism is it’s limited to only a 5 colour pallet, no less.

- Just Awful

Thought this would have more functionality and similar to the website which is still a great tool. This doesn't let you pick similar shades use pantone colours, give colours names. They're all just hex strings. Saving is also terrible because it just asks you to type a new name for your pallet. It also doesn't support new iPhone screen sizes. Looking now it's quite obvious this hasn't been updated in 3 yesrs, it's a shame because the website is so useful.

- A bit disappointing

I thought this app was going to be like the website. I thought I’d be able to import photos and extract palettes from them, but it can’t be done. You also can’t choose different shades for palettes like you can on the browser. It makes no sense to me that you would pay money for an app that has less features than what’s available online for free? I could just generate a palette from the browser for free and screenshot it into my art program? I thought this mobile app would allow me to use photos from my phone and extract palettes. But it doesn’t this app doesn’t really have a functional purpose that can’t be achieved through the browser. It makes no sense at all to pay money for less features? This was a waste of money and time

- You have to log in EVERY TIME.

Very helpful; however, you have to log in every time you open the app to save pallets, which is a pain in the neck in light of how easy and accessible most apps are now.

- Disappointing and a waste of money

There’s no way to upload images to choose colours, as on the free web version. You can’t even specify a starting colour

- Not like website enough

I thought this would be much more similar to the website. Still useful and fun, but more of a slow toy than a fast tool like the website.

- Desktop Web App is Great, But...

This needs more work. I’m sure it’ll be 5-Star material once it’s functionality matches that of the Desktop App.

- Great tool!

Very fun and useful tool for graphic design. You can create some very interesting color combination in a second and save them. Not as powerful as the Pantone studio app that allow you to extract colors from images and photos but still one of my favorite design app.

- Works as Advertised

Great app! I use it to come up with colour combinations for my Hue lights.

- Useless

This is useless to someone who does not already know how to work the program. No help options in the app, no explanations no guidance. I could choose one colour at a time but no way to create my own colour scheme. Colour rocket science degree required to use! 😟😟😠😡

- Requires Cloud Save

Shouldn't require cloud save. No local save. Cloud save doesn't work. Impossible to sign-up. Borken app.

- Fun and useful!

It's like having a highly controllable paint chip combination generator at your fingertips. I can see if that crazy colour combo I was thinking of actually works, and get some quick suggestions for what works better. I'm using this to pick wedding colours, but will probably use it for interior design, art projects, and quickly settling arguments in the future. My one thought would be that I would love it if there was an option to pick more or fewer colours based on my project.

- Useful

Super useful. Thought there was an option to choose palettes from photos but I can't find it. It would be a great addition, though.

- Awesome

Really helps

- Interesting App

Helps in blending the right colours together. Very useful!

- Great app

Does exactly what it's designed to do and has a beautiful ui.

- Simple, addictive, fun

Got this app to try to pick some colours to match my walls. It's surprisingly addictive to fix a couple of colours you have and then start hitting that "generate" button. My eight year old plays with it like a game, but the palettes she saves make me think we should take her to a doctor. Or a designer.

- Terrific

Useful as well as addictive. Likely going to use it all the time. Love it.

- The color wheel perfected

Best and clearest color suggestions I've seen. Great for fashion designers/aficionados and interior designers alike!
