Pantone Extends Mobile Access for Color Accuracy with myPANTONE 2.0

Posted: April 17, 2014

As design projects continue to become more digital and designers more mobile, the demand for applications to support an ever-changing work dynamic intensifies. Pantone LLC, an X-Rite company, announced two new mobile applications to meet this growing need—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 incorporates feedback from more than 80,000 Pantone fans to extend the functionality of the original myPANTONE application and meet the growing needs of designers. myPANTONE 2.0 adds several enhanced features, including color calibration tools to improve the appearance of PANTONE Colors onscreen, CMYK support for PANTONE PLUS SERIES Colors, access to ICC color-managed values, and the ability to print color palettes straight from the iPhone.
“We continue to see a fundamental shift in the way designers work and smartphones are increasingly acting as portable color studios,” says Andy Hatkoff, v.p. of technology licensing for Pantone. “myPANTONE for the iPhone was our first mobile application. Since its release, our Facebook community has been passionate about telling us the features they would like to see in future versions, including CMYK values and display calibration for more accurate color representation on screen. And, as the mobile market continues to expand, requests for an Android version of myPANTONE could not be ignored.” For more, visit www.mypantone.com.
