Maybe if you have white walls and bright light, this is fine. As is, it only sorta overlays what's there so it's next to useless on bold or dark walls. It might give an okay ballpark but with my darker gray walls, or a room that's green, I didn't get anywhere near what the colour chip in app looks like. Would be nice to be able to *erase* existing colour so the app can show the new colour properly.
App needs redo button!! :) Nearly finished a segment four times and accidentally lost it. Can't undo an accidental "Clear all" or painring is lost. Can't tap back arrow key on phone or project is lost. - Can't just leave and go back to app. or incidentally use back arrow as undo. App also needs cropping or masking tape options to fill in only wanted areas. App works for smaller projects also, but doesn't cover (namely) flat black. Retouched picture save is a nice feature.
Wow. The color match on this is awful. It can't even guess within the same color family. I tried multiple lighting situations and it didn't guess a single color right in my house. I tried to get it to guess my bedroom color that I know for a fact is behr pale starlet, and it kept coming up with olive green or ashy grays. Then I tried it in other rooms and it didn't even get close for them either. Guess I'm chipping paint off the walls!!!
I couldn't do any detail painting. It's no good for seeing how one color looks with another color of a project. Unless I want to do a one color project it is useless. And if they don't bother to try matching the colors at the store like the other reviews say, what's the point of the app? It must be as useless as the "experts" in the store are. They tell YOU what you want.
I am a Paint Department Supervisor for The Home Depot in Houston, TX. This is an excellent app to use when trying to get the perfect color in your home. It has the ability to show you EVER paint AND stain color that can be created by The Home Depot. I use it daily in my own store to demonstrate what the app can do. I have saved numerous customers from make impulse buys in the Paint department. It's an investment you are putting into your home; one that you will be enjoying for many years. So, you should take the time to play with the app & see how colorful your home can be. Plus, all the colors listed in the app can be created by the associates at your local store. NOTE: When you are using the "See It" feature with a uploaded image, make sure that you have ALL available light lighting in the whole room; for example, have all table lamps, overhead fixtures & wall fixtures on. Also, open the curtains & blinds to let any natural light in from the windows. This will provide you the amount of light needed to achieve an accurate selection when looking at the space you want to add some color to.
I've used this app previously with success, but now it will not color/paint anything I touch on my photos. Makes it useless. Not sure what changed. I've had a Galaxy S5 the entire time. I am assuming an update hosed it. :( Before it wasn't perfect, but did the job well enough to visualize a project. Totally bummed.
