Why the app is decent, I am giving it two stars because not only is it a yearly subscription, but on top of that you have to pay on a per device basis. If it's subscription-based then make it for all devices, not just one. If it's device-based, then price based on device. Not BOTH!

This is subscription based! You must be totally out of your mind to use a subscription color picker. I think Sip left the MAS in 2019 or 2018. I received a mail and switched to Sip via Paddle. Today I received an email from Paddle that my Sip 2 will soon be billed to continue my subscription. I did not even know I had a subscription. Checked all my mails concerning the license I received when Sip moved away from MAS to Paddle. Not once I can see the word subscription. I am not using Sip anymore and found out I had to install the latest version to be able to cancel my subscription. I logged in to Paddle just to see I cannot do anything there. Of course I blocked Paddle now. It is very, very strange to have a subscription with a company and you cannot log in their website to manage your "subscription". This way "of doing business" only has one purpose, trick customers into a shady subscription deal. On their website you can only find the word subscription in their blog. Clicking on their pricing page (https://sipapp.io/pricing/) you will read you are entitled to one year of free updates. No mention of the word subscription automatic attempts form Paddle to pay the subscription you were not aware you were buying. This company is disgusting. By the way long before I found out before finding out before this subscription switched away from Sip as color picker.

The ultimate color picker and manger for mac , very easy to use and stunning design with very powerful and convenient tools . This application helped me manage and discover new colours for my projects and presentations, just drag and drop , the dock pallets is very reliable to get access when I need it . The developers also are very helpful and appreciate feedback . This is the most convenient color picker I ve ever come across .

The function to send palettes to others by email seems to be completely dead. It appears to send but nothing ever arrives and I contacted the developers about this over a year ago. No reply was received, so maybe they just don't like email. I tried the demo of version 2 and nothing seemed to work like before, so I uninstalled it and I'm going to look for an alternative.

A Very Greedy Developer Reason: I bought this app on 2018-11-24 (Black Friday Sales). At that time, the developer said this app can be upgraded for a lifetime. On 2019-2-18, I got an e-mail about the newest version 2.0, and this upgrade needs to pay! The Same Case: A developer of BetterTouchTool app, also changed his sales plan, but he gave users time buffer! so Ola Brothers team is VERY GREEDY, and I will keep away from all products by them.

I use this daily but I wish it could be connected to the Apple ColorPicker and show SIP collections in it.. like this "another one bites the dust" app has.. https://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/51793/colors-pro or like this great "once upon a time" app had https://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/23124/tangerine IP would then be 10 stars.. Please do it !!!

I reactivated Sip on my Mac after installing High Sierra from scratch but it seems to be gone, and found out that its not distributed anymore in MAS. No problem, I can understand that you moved away from Mac App Store, and i would buy the new version, but making MAS version useless e.g. by removing the color dock to force them to buy the new version is worst. You didn’t leave the MAS version in a good state, you left it in a broken state. If you made this already in past, i think you will make it always again in future and thats why i will not buy the new version. You should not handle existing customers like this!

I had the free version from the App Store, but never really used it. On the recommendation of others I just purchased this and it seems pretty fantastic if you do web design or other graphic work. The standard color picker in Mac OS is rather limited and this has just opened up a lot of flexibility, especially if working with others. It's too early to leave a full review with stars, but so far I'm impressed.

Wow, was frustrated with my current Color Swatches app, came sniffing around MU, and stumbled onto Sip, which I had gotten ages ago.. but hardly ever used, was too basic and I ended up using Colors Pro. I saw an update date not so far back, decided to launch my copy out of curiosity.. got a message asking to check their news.. and saw they have this new non AppStore version with numbering restarting at 1.. I gave it a spin and bought it minutes later. The tabs on the edge are very practical. Shortcuts to switch color spaces etc.. great features. Kind of wish I could drag and drop onto Adobe apps color selectors, but.. still, very well thought out. So it still get a well-deserved 5. Always nice to see devs improving their apps.

The version drops support for a shared history, favoring shared pallets in their place...

Seeing as I have no need for pallets, and generally prefer to copy history between machines, the update means this app is no more useful to me than any other color picker on the market, for which there are many.

Seeing as I had purchased pro after paying for other color pickers, I'm effectively out the cost I paid for pro since it no longer gives me any features I don't already have.

I really like SIP so far but it still won't get the best rating as it lacks some important features like: - sync only works with their own sync service. I would like to see a file based library sync like owncloud, bittorrent sync, … - I can't choose a color profile. It uses a generic profile while in most cases other profiles are more accurate (e.g. Device RGB or sRGB). This actually is a huge "no go" for me. - No help is included. I had to find the way to use SIP on my own - Renaming the colors, so I can give them more meaning (e.g. project dependent) - export/import library (e.g. ASE, AI, …) The GUI and handling are OK and the feature to integrate it with PS and AI is very nice. The best tool I ever used was tangerine which did almost everything right, but the development of this app is stalled and there are some problems using it with the latest versions of os x.

BEST color picker tool I've ever used. I've installed 2-3 on both Mac and Windows and most user experience issues and didn't work very well. I've also tried ones inside Chrome but that doesn't work if you're picking a color outside the browser. Sip is awesome. I even included it in my recommendations: http://kickassinwebdesign.com/blog/30-minute-color-palette/

All but perfect. Small great looking, unobtrusive, fast, and free! Tiny nit picks: 1. call up Color Picker with cmd+shift+c 2. offer shortcut to close 3. show the loupe/picker on application launch

This the best color picker I've used (tried ColorSnapper, Hues, Pochade, Little Picker and Color Picker). Usability and neatness are in perfect combination in this app. I recommend it to everyone!
