mColorBook is a digital munsell book of color.
In the munsell color order system, colors are ordered based on three attributes: hue, value and chroma. All three attributes are intended to be perceptually uniform. With equal hue or equal value or equal chroma or other rules, you can easily create harmonious color combinations.
The ability to see color in 3 dimensions (hue, value and chroma) is important to many. With mColorBook it's a blast. 3 viewing modes are provided to assist you, namely:
With mColorBook you have access to tens of thousands of subtle colors which vary in:
hue steps down to 0.5;

By using slider, menu items and toolbar items you can navigate to any constant hue (or value or chroma) page freely.
