Edit: I understand the free version let's you choose pantone colors, what I'm referring to is the function to convert hex or rgb to Pantone solid coated colors. That feature is locked behind a subscription now and seriously disrupts my workflow. Manually choosing colors by eye and then importing it into my editing program, only to find it's not quite the right shade I want, is incredibly inefficient. Starting with rgb then to Pantone is far quicker. Free trial is great but temporary.

The app was free during its beta trial. It was never meant to be a perpetual free app, but we sincerely apologize if we failed to communicate this clearly. We continue to offer freemium access with a 30-day trial to our premium features. With our community's support, we can continue servicing and providing future enhancements.

The list of supported devices for the color match card is a painful disappointment, this is to start with. For a paid service it is simply unacceptable. This is the main function that would make this app useful for me. None of my 3 devices (Pixel 3, OnePlus 6T, 7T) are supported. The UI is basically just a website with all the shortcomings in its responsiveness and control experience. You cannot call this an app, do the job properly.

Dear Gera, with our latest update, the Google Pixel 3 should now measure as expected with the Color Match Card, and the app responsiveness is greatly improved. Could you please kindly confirm that you receive the result expected on this device? We are working with partners to profile additional devices in an upcoming batch. - Pantone Digital Team

Was great. Now there is a crashed tab error message that never goes away. Edit: in case anyone has Samsung and the same issue, Samsung recently did an update that switched my default browser to Samsung Internet. I switched default back to Chrome and the app works again! This app is a must have for anyone who loves and/or works with color!

Thanks for your updated review! We're glad you use Pantone Connect for your color work. The app works best with a Chrome mobile browser, and will be making some improvements to work well with Samsung Internet following their update.
