Hello Kévin,

So : what do you think of this two points  ? (using "Tablet" version on
desktop and removing Recent colors from "Custom color view). What other
things would you like to change in this design ?

Tablet standards (such as icons instead of buttons and menu items) should be changed, other than 
that I think it would be the same.

Other issues:
    -New should be on the left and Old on the right.
    -New should be adjacent to Old to compare colors with slight differences.
    -The grayscale colors should be vertical and on the left of the palette for consistency.
    -The colors beneath the basic ones should be even to clear confusion about the gap between the 
third and fourth rows (to show that the third isn't the middle color).
    -The theme creator dialog should be replaced with a drop down menu for changing themes, 
possibly next to the theme colors label.
    -Automatic should also be available in custom colors, maybe to the left of the hex code.
    -The back and check-mark icons aren't consistent with the desktop UI. The back icon should be 
replaced with an icon denoting theme color and the check-mark icon should be replaced with an apply 
    -Since it is a pop-over and not a dialog the custom colors should be applied immediately upon 
changing the current color. The window can be closed when the focus moves away or using an ok 

Other concerns:
   - When using the standard colors as the default theme, what would appear in the palette tab?
    -Wouldn't using square tiles be more consistent and natural with the desktop UI?
    -Wouldn't it be better if we use a color map/square for the HSL instead of the wheel since it's 
already implemented and prettier in my opinion?

Can I have the SVG file? I have an idea regarding the palette tab and can also better explain my 
thoughts in pictures :)

Side note: I'm a he :)
