What’s Coming Up Next? – MacHouse Introducing ObjColors for Mac OS X

Mac OS X software ObjColors

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:.
