If you’ve ever spent time studying color theory, odds are you’ll know the name Josef Albers, or at least his book: Interaction of Color.

The 1963 classic is an excellent way to truly understand one of the most important elements of design, color, but since books are now as passé as the phrase “passé,” you might want to check out Interaction of Color for iPad, by Yale University.

Breathing new life into the text, Yale’s app edition adds interactive color studies, a palette tool and videos. The app’s free to try, but to truly take advantage of it, you’ll want to unlock the full text with a $9.99 in-app purchase.

Again, this isn’t for you if you aren’t a budding designer or color theory-obsessed. If you are, however, you won’t want to miss it.
