App Review: Gradient by Jumpzero

Today I wanna share a review about an app I tried a couple days ago and I truly enjoyed it. It's the Gradient App from Jumpzero, the app is the opportunity to create gradients for web browsers. It's a really good app for the web designers and also for designers that wants a useful colour app at hand. All rights reserved to GradientApp.com The Look As I first noticed, the look is really simple, one window with straight-forward options. We can clearly see that the purpose is to create the gradients. All rights reserved to GradientApp.com The Options The Gradient App is coming with three different main functions to make gradients. You have selecting the colours which is pretty common. You have also by setting the gradient appears or by creating it in CSS. The use of the Custom Color Picker is very recommended also. All rights reserved to GradientApp.com More Options You can also select the type of gradients, either is direction and centre position. Choosing “linear” type, you will choose one of four directions; down, right, diagonally down and diagonally up. If you select a radial gradient then you have a few more choices as to where you want the gradient to centre. I think it's a good option to make some variations. All rights reserved to GradientApp.com Get the Code The CSS button will give you a Live Preview of the code you chose. If you're happy happy with it, you can just copy to clipboard and paste it into your design, or go back and make some modifications. All rights reserved to GradientApp.com Final Words I truly enjoyed the simplicity and efficiency of the Gradient App. For the price of 4.99 (US - Canada), you get a simple useful app packed with great features. Get it now on iTunes. For more information about the Gradient App and Jumpzero, you can check out the gradient website at GradientApp.com or simply follow them on Twitter @jumpzero .
