Capturing the notion of a color with a portable color studio.

On July 11th, Pantone unveiled two new mobile applications to support the evolving needs of today’s designer – myPANTONE for Android and myPANTONE 2.0 for the iPhone.

myPANTONE for Android brings Pantone’s popular iPhone application for capturing, creating and sharing PANTONE Color Palettes to the Android platform – giving graphic, digital, multimedia, fashion, interior and industrial designers access to more than 13,000 PANTONE Colors wherever they go, whenever they find inspiration.

myPANTONE 2.0 for iPhone incorporates feedback from more than 80,000 Pantone fans to extend the functionality of the original myPANTONE application. The app includes several enhanced features, including color calibration tools to improve the appearance of Pantone colors on screen, CMYK support for Pantone Plus Series Colors, access to ICC color-managed values, and the ability to print color palettes straight from the iPhone.

Each color swatch in the myPANTONE for Android application includes sRGB, HTML and L*a*b* values. myPANTONE for Android also automatically generates a variety of harmonious color combinations. Additionally, invaluable cross-referencing color capabilities make it simple for users to find similar colors among the various PANTONE Color Libraries. For example, users can identify the PANTONE FASHION + HOME Color that most closely matches any PANTONE PLUS Color.

myPANTONE for Android takes advantage of Android’s built-in camera to let the user capture whatever inspires them. Colors can be extracted from any photo stored on the Android and matched to the closest PANTONE Colors.

Once created, users can share color palettes by email with their friends, colleagues and clients. Color palettes can be sent as PANTONE Color Chips, or as swatch files that can be used in Adobe Creative Suite (.ase) and QuarkXPress. Designers can also share their color palettes by automatically posting notification of new palettes to Facebook or by sending them to the Pantone website.
