[Editor's note: I helped Matheau at Code Line beta test his Color Expert app for the iPhone and I'm pleased to see it's getting good press (over at MacFormat it is the iPhone app of the month for Dec 2008). Think of Color Expert as Adobe kuler for the iPhone but with the mobile ability to start color color schemes based on the world arround you. Point the iPhone's camera, tap the image, and walla! A whole new custom color wheel scheme, which can be emailed back to your computer in swatch file format directly importable into Adobe desktop apps. Or shared and modifed with your client at a job site. Color Expert still needs better support for CMYK and ability to snap to RGB and CMYK color library, not just Pantone. And I really like Mordy's idea about shaking Color Expert to come up with new color schemes But the app works well and unlike any other tool for the iPhone and at the introductory price of $9.99 is a steal. And the 1.1 update addressing some of my gripes will of course be free.]
