    Nice list. I use the Kuler Air app frequently.

  2. Paul says:

    These types of articles can be helpful for finding out about new apps but 50 “Best”, come on. At least 25% of these apps are crap that no one will ever use. Some are so similar to others as to be indistinguishable.

    Instead of doing a Google search, and listing everything that pops up, this would be much more useful and interesting if it were narrowed down to ten really good apps.

    I have deleted my RSS feed from a few other design sites because they seemed to specialize in this type of article. I hope Smashing doesn’t go to far down this route.

    Take the time to evaluate the apps, and tell us why you like the best ones.

    I love these tools. Nothing makes my eyes happier than creating color schemes, so finding so many ways to do it is absolute heaven for me. Thanks!

  4. kok aan huis says:

    I don’t really use the tools. Yo can’t be original following these…

    WIth all this science and technology what are we to do when a client says I am not digging the colors you chose, they don’t pop!

    As if we picked the color schemes from our own personal taste instead of instinct, research and target audiences…

    Thanks and Regards

    I generally just use photoshop for the job, but it freezes up, so this tools will come in handy. Thanks!

    I’ve used a few of these in the past. There is one I liked best that you had to download something and pay for it. As far as these are concerned, I will need o spend some time experimenting.

    That for for compiling all these tools. They really are helpful.

    I went to SlayerOffice.com to check out their tool. Frankly, with a name like SlayerOffice, I was expecting a lot more awesomeness. Have they ever heard Slayer?

    “Color Scheme Designer” satisfies the need for 85%!

  11. Joe Payton says:

    Checkout http://colourlovers.com/ I really enjoy this site for color inspiration.

  12. anonmeh says:

    I can’t believe you neglected to mention http://colourlovers.com/

    Most of the tools mentioned above aren’t nearly as sophisticated.

  13. Ted E Bears says:

    Great tools for those of us who think purple and pink are relaxing, or worse that plaid and chex look good in a suit.

  14. A lot of thanks for the list

  15. Seth says:

    colourlovers.com has to be my favorite color design tool and it’s not even on the list.
