Search & Gather Colors with Litur For iPhone

Written by Hassan Abbas

Litur For iPhone: Say help to Litur, an effective color-picker app for iPhone and iPad. As it takes benefits of your iOS device camera. Also, it’ll let you capture any color around you for use in your projects.

It is an easy-to-use software. However, it works by checking individual frames to calculate the average color of the region within the viewfinder. Litur is the brainchild of indie iOS developer Bezaleel Ashefor.

He tells me via email:

As a creative or designer, we sometimes come across colors that we want to use in our later projects. However, at the time there’s no way of remembering them. But just trusting our brains to know what we saw. Litur stores you that headache.

Once you take colors to get automatically saved for later in the app’s History section. In which you can’t only see every color you have gathered up to that point. But you can also share them with friends and family. Each color is defined by its corresponding RGB, HSB, CMYK, and HEX value.

Using industry-standard color codes enables you to copy and paste any color to use in your projects. Either in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and other apps. Especially it’s nice that Litur automatically creates color palettes based on your capture sessions. It allows you to see different color combinations for each captured color. These combinations are complementary, analogous, monochromatic, triadic and tetradic.

Thankfully, you can generate custom palettes by adding up to five colors you have gathered over time. Not only this but also give your palette a custom name. I like that Litur supports reaching the history section and custom palettes. As they are faster from the Home screen through the Quick Actions menu invoked by clicking and holding the app’s icon.

As a bonus, Litur implant itself in iOS’s system-wide contextual menus. He packs in a handy Today widget for instantly accessing the last two captured colors. Last but not least, Litur has no subscriptions and its creator ensures that all future updates will remain free.


All done. Here’s all about Litur for iPhone. For more queries and questions let us know in the comments section below. Also, drop a comment if you want to share anything else.

Till then! Keep Smiling 🙂
