Not intuitive, but, once you figure it out, it's interesting. You will need to use the flashlight for indoor items. It says that it needs to calibrate using a white surface, but, no matter which such I use, including white vinyl siding in total sunlight, it always says that the object is "too dark"! I like that it saves the colors, but, aim at the same thing twice and you'll get variations. Still, this is close to what I needed, so, beggars can't be (color!) choosers.

I've just been on an app downloading spree and this is the one I come back to most often and spend the most time on. Does everything it was said to do; it's basically a tool and like any quality tool it does it's job well without delay or interruption. I already have a project for it: I'm scanning the applied inks of all my colored pens and markers as well as those for drawing and writing. It's going to help me determine what colors I'm most in need of. Pencils next!

I tested this app a year ago to find the advantages and disadvantages. (see below) Advantages: 1) The color map feature is very accurate, according to the colors on the loaded photos. 2) There are a variety of ways to upload your colors, other than plainly being a photo. 3) The options for changing and blending colors are unlimited. Disadvantages: 1) There are no multiple selection option. 2) The camera makes everything look pixelated. 3) You have to upload your colors one at a time.
