Color palette for mobile app


is there any course on Treehouse about choosing colors for a mobile app? I don't know how to come up with colors but I need it for a presentable MVP. Are there any tools? I saw there is Adobe Kuler. Can this be used for this purpose?

Hi Markus,

I am not sure that there is a course for specifically choosing colors on a mobile app. I am not sure why that would be any different than choosing colors for, say, a web site. You need to understand color theory when choosing colors for anything!

This course here on Treehouse goes over some color theory https://teamtreehouse.com/library/aesthetic-foundations

As far as tool for creating a palette you have already mentioned one. A quick search in google for color palettes should bring up a lot of tools. Here are a couple.

The last 2 are my favorites!

Hope this help!
