Quite useful, but the two separate apps is driving me absolutely crazy especially since only one can be connected to the device at one time. Without something like an "expert mode" that can be unlocked to look at both LCH at the same time as paint colors this will annoy me every time I use this app.

This app could be so much better. Why are there 2 apps, digital & paint? Why not just one app (say paint) which also shows you the digital values. Then, there are flaws with each app. Why can't I save and label scans? In the digital app, they are under recent, but you can't label them, which would be so simple. In the paints app you only appear to be able to save paints not the scan itself. Another thing, if you scan something in digital, then want to find the paint colour, you can't. You have to rescan, but guess what, you might not be near the scanned surface, and anyway as I said before in the paint app, you can't save the scan itself. So, please combine the apps, add the ability to save scans and name them and make it easy to search for the nearest match across all of your libraries.

Hi David. Thanks for your feedback! We designed the Nix Paints and Nix Digital apps to operate independently of each other. This was a purposeful decision to clearly separate paint and digital artistry to ensure there is no confusion for our users -- we wouldn't want you bringing a HEX code to the hardware store to try and mix paint!

Using a Dulux fandeck to test against I am finding the colour you scan gets around a 90% match. This I reckon is way good enough allowing for the difficulty it must be to produce actuate fandecks across the huge Dulux colour range. The Nix mini 2 is a great tool for the initial meeting with clients. A million times faster than shovelling through the thousands of colours in the fandeck. Love it!
