Color Oven LogoI came across this designer tool called, "Color Oven" by Lima's Web Design, they also have an OS X version of the application for USD2.99. color-oven1

The purpose of this application is quite straight forward. You choose a color and the application will generate a set of complimentary colour schemes: monochromatic, complimentary, analogous, or triad, for you.

This application's features are not unlike many of the web based colour scheme generators, like ColorSchemeDesigner.com. Web site like Colr.org will accept a photo from Flickr or uploaded from the user's computer, to generate a complimentary colour scheme from it.

Color Oven - SchemesI would not call myself a designer, but I do appreciate design, and I do often build web sites. For this application to be useful to me, I would need the ability to manually enters the HEX (preferred) or RGB codes for the desire colour then have the application generate the colour scheme.

This iPhone application is available on iTunes for USD1.99; 1 dollar less than the OS X version, I think they are both too much to ask for when ColorSchemeDeisgner can do the same thing for free.

Yesterday the iPhone Dev Team released QuickPwn (the Torrent link) for Macintosh. This is the Macintosh OS X version of the same tool they released for Windows users several weeks ago. The different between this tool and the Pwnage Tool the iPhone Dev Team has also released for the Macintosh is that the QuickPwn will not require a restore using iTunes, therefore a bit friendlier to layman iPhone users (junior hackers) who need to unlock and jailbreak their iPhone (1st generation) or jailbreak their iPhone 3G. iPhone Dev Team says the Pwnage Tool will still be enhanced and supported as it will be the tool for iPhone users who like to customize their .IPSW package for the iPhone.

I personally have not yet use this tool as my iPhone has already been upgraded to iPhone firmware 2.0.2 using the Pwnage Tool for Macintosh.
