No user interface

LoneColor has a minimal design and no user interface! To specify the color you want to use, just add its name or code to the program name. It's like using command line parameters, but a lot easier. And less technical.

Clipboard talk

As a zero interface app, LoneColor has no windows! So it talks to the user using the... Clipboard. It writes the color code of your wallpaper, or any error messages, to the Clipboard. To see them, paste anywhere.
