FREE at the Mac App Store, at least at this point in time.

Just note that it requires OS X 10.8 or higher.

The only missing feature is a shortcut for the color picker.

Sip is the most easiest, convenient, intelligent, best looking, versatile color picker on the Mac. I enjoy it using it and if you are a designer, especially for web, looking for color picker, look no further. Sip is the King for now. This is another gem for the mac that gets me get up looking forward to using a mac.

Kudos to the developer who saw what was missing on frequent quick color sampling. The price is absolutely reasonable at under a $1.

It's listing $4.99 in MacAppStore, NOT FREE!

I am also annoyed this is in MAS. If you going to let your app on MAS, then stop listing your app supporting OS X 10.5 and under. Before I received my new MacBook Pro yesterday, I was still using Leopard on my PowerBook Pro, and developers who did this really is a teaser. Not very nice!

Does absolutely nothing under 10.6.8. Nothing. I guess you get what you pay for. Good thing it's free.

This looks like a clever app. However, I am unable to try it. The requirements state that minimum OS is 10.5, which I am using, but it is apparently available only through the Mac App Store, which requires OS 10.6 or 10.7.

The Ola Brothers are artificially restricting potential users from trying their app.

(BTW, I wrote to the devs directly, but they have not taken time to respond. And I am posting a comment rather than a review since I am not able to give it a try.)
