Have you ever been shopping at your favorite craft and hobby shop and decided that you'd like to expand your Copic® marker collection? This handy app lets you keep track of which colors you already have with the tap of a finger. Just by clicking on a labeled color tile, you can mark or unmark a color to match any color in the Copic® marker palette.

Android Users! — You can still use this application, just select your "Browser" icon, go to the URL in Step 1:

and then select "New Bookmark". In the future, you can use this bookmark to go to the Copic® Colors app, and it will remember your selections. You can ignore the rest of the steps that are specific for the iPhone app.

At the bottom center of the screen, click on the bookmark icon ( Bookmark Page ), or in some versions of Safari, this button looks like a plus sign ( Bookmark Page ). Either way, touch this button.

2. Add Copic® Colors to your Home Screen

This is the last step! On the last screen, you will get a chance to name your new application.

The default name is "Copic Colors", which fits nicely on the home screen. You can, of course, change it to whatever you want.

Once you have a name you like, touch the "Add" button in the top right corner.

4. Your New Home Screen

Frequently Asked Questions

Why did you write this app?
My wife uses Copic Markers and asked me if I could write something like this, since she couldn't find one online already. Writing little apps like this is just a hobby.
Why isn't this in the Apple iStore?
An Apple developer's license costs [too much] money. I'm just this one guy, and am letting people use the app for free. I didn't really want to spend much money on writing it or time learning a new coding language.
What information are you collecting about me?
Information about your markers is kept locally on your phone/device. DO NOT ERASE YOUR WEB STORAGE DATA. If you decide to store your selections in the cloud, then I could look up your email address and what markers you own—I have no plans to do anything with this information. I use Google Analytics to track usage, but all that data is in aggregate. I know nothing about you personally.
Could you make your app do X?
I'd love to hear from you! The various forum, Pinterest, and Facebook posts have really been encouraging. Cloud storage of your marker selections came about because people requseted it. But please remember, I'm just one person. You can reach me at apps@hyliston.net.
