TOKYO (MacHouse) – I’ve been quite slow this month. I’m unlikely to be able to release 5 or 6 applications per month like I used to. Well, I’ve been working on the second one of the month. It’s been submitted to Mac App Store. This new software release is called ObjColors.
ObjColors is a desktop application that lets you save color objects as RGB values. Saving color objects, you can access them from application’s status menu to generate Objective-C or Swift code for Mac OS X and iOS. The default RGB color method is colorWithRed:green:blue:alpha:. If you intend to generate code for OS X, you can set your default color method to colorWithCalibratedRed:green:blue:alpha:, colorWithDeviceRed:green:blue:alpha: or colorWithSRGBRed:green:blue:alpha:.
- Easily pick a color from a list of 216 colors with 4 different arrangements.
- Use Color Picker to select a particular color.
- Drag and drop an image file onto a drop box to extract a pixel color at specific coordinates.
- Manually enter RGB values to specify a color. Likewise, enter an HTML color value, enter HSB values to specify a color.
- Generate a line of Objective-C or Swift code for the selected color command on the status menu.
- Control-click on a color command on the status menu to delete that color.

- The application does NOT support the fullscreen mode. The application window is not resizable, either.
- Languages: English and Japanese only
- Application file size: 10.1 MB.
- The application comes with a complete user’s guide written in English. (Choose Help > User’s Guide.) If the application window is not around, choose Show Application Window from the status menu before choosing User’s Guide under Help.
- The application comes with a 9-page introduction window, giving the user a quick tour over how it works.
- 10.8 (tested with 10.8.4), 10.9 (tested with 10.9.5), 10.10 (tested with 10.10.0)
