A collection of screenshots of Pika

Accessibility focused

Compare colours to quickly confirm WCAG compliance.


In your menu bar or dock, and in the Touch Bar, Pika gets out of the way when you don't need it.

Ready to go

Let Pika know to start at login, and it'll always be a click or shortcut away.

Easy to access

Set a global hotkey so you can access Pika from anywhere, then use ⌘D and ⇧⌘D to start picking.

Mac native

Lightning fast and native, Pika is compatible with macOS 10.15 Catalina and newer.

Format friendly

Choose from popular colour formats like hex, RGB, HSB, or HSL, and seamlessly copy colours for other applications with ⌘C and ⇧⌘C.
