Color Thief has just become an even bigger hue-stealer. That is, the photo editing app that’s formerly optimized for iPhone and iPod touch only has just been made natively compatible with iPad as well.

Developed by Yellow Cedar Software, whose first project was helping to bring the hit indie game Osmos to iOS, Color Thief is a photography app that does only one thing but does it well.

Color Thief is so named because it lets you transfer colors from one photo to another. In particular, it allows you to apply the hue or tone of one photo to another and vice versa.

The app comes with a few photos from which you can “pilfer” colors. But a nice thing about Color Thief is that it allows you to use your own photos as color filters. Another is that it lets you save your filtered creations without any degradation in their original resolution.

Oh, and applying colors between photos is as easy as toggling a little arrow button at the center of the screen.

But there are also other buttons in the app, which let you: see photos in full screen, load photos from your camera roll, take a new photo right within the app, and share your results via Facebook, Twitter, email, and other apps.

Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 5.1 or later, Color Thief is available in the App Store for $1.99.
