FileMind sounds awesome! But i am currently using clover 2 and i am not sure if it is worth the switch (I like the tabs function in clover vs the quickness of FileMind)

Not sure what to recommend here as I never tried Clover 2 myself. I wouldn’t switch if you’re happy with the Clover 2 though.

Just got color grabber for my nexus due to this, and it is a godsend! I know it might seem weird, but so often do I find myself wondering how nice that shade of grey is and how good it will look on my website or my picture or anything, especially when browsing on the move on my nexus 1 (blergh) it’s a pain to take a screenshot and look at it later to get the colour (UK) so I never do. Thanks makuseof
