    "This is not an app for beginners. I found it pretty hardcore and I'm a professional designer, so I can imagine it can seem downright alien to most people. But there is a lot of good things there, and I found the interface clear and effective. And if you work a lot with JavaScript, I assume it could become one of your go-to applications."

    "I am not sure what I am looking at when I clicked it. It looks like a library list of color manipulation. It may be what the problem was looking for. It does not look like a basic customer friendly library. I will have a hard time investigating it to get what I am looking for. "

    "My nephew likes to program and is always working with JavaScript. Recently he was looking for the best JavaScript libraries for color manipulation. A coworker of mine recommended Async.js. Well, after checking it out, both my nephew and I were left underwhelmed. The site didn't perform like it was promised and we both feel it leaves much to be desired. I would definitely look elsewhere. "
