Sooooo much better than I ever hoped for! It is so intuitive and user-friendly your first time that it kind of blew me away. Whoever did the design just knocked it out of the park because I pretty much knew how to use each button even though they were not labeled and I had not looked at any instructions or guide or anything. That, to me, is a hallmark of excellent app design. Well done!! I also had no idea that in the settings you could change the color library to almost any of the relevant ones

Excited about the potential of this app but it's not at all intuitive to use. I held the camera to my ceiling trying to capture the color of paint. It did capture it but when I tried to save the info I can't without moving it just a bit and then of course the color changes and is useless. Why do I get the feeling this app is using us to do their testing?! I had high hopes but do far it's useless in being capable of grabbing a color you can save without moving the camera and losin the capture.

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.
