This app allowed me to get a near-perfect color match for repainting my walls. Sunlight can fade paint over time, so I needed to scan my walls in several different places, then pick the color that came up more often. The tool is generally very accurate, especially if you can narrow down the search results by manufacturer. Click the Filter icon and choose the manufacturer(s). In my case, I knew the paint had come from either Sherman Williams or Benjamin Moore. The app provided me with a few color names that I then went to the paint store with. The user interface on this app is not the most intuitive, but after working with the app for a little while, it became easier. Still, it is much too tedious, and it can benefit from some significant improvements. Some suggestions: 1. Do not make the scan history an infinitely-scrolling loop. Stop the scroll when I get to the oldest scan. 2. Creating color palettes and saving colors to them is much too tedious. 3. The current version of the app requires me to create an account and login, before I can begin using the app. An older version of this app did not. 4. Syncing of my scans and color palettes to the online cloud account does not work consistently.

Using the latest software version (Dec 2020)... I had 5 cans of paints in the basement that looked almost the same to me. This tool is amazing! I filtered by Sherwin Williams and it consistently got the exact color. Took about 10 samples and the exact color showed up 9 times. A little tip: this works best at night with the lights off. The one time it picked a similar color it wound being correct when i turned the lights off.

Really useful and nifty tool! But the software is super clunky. UX needs a major overhaul. UGH. DON'T MAKE MY MISTAKE! I scanned 100 colors from a fan deck I borrowed. I forgot to reset the filter to "paint" so all the colors have similar and useless names. I also forgot to have the folder open when I scanned. So trying to move 100 scans to folders individually is miserably slow, especially since I can't figure out which scans match the fan deck. I can't keep track of which ones have been saved to a folder since there is no "move" or "rename" feature for scans in the history. It's kind of a nightmare. UX FUNCTIONALITY CHANGES. (1) Need to be able to move, copy, delete scans in BATCH, to and from folders and scan history. (2) Hitting the back arrow should not take you all the way back to the beginning or kick you out when you are looking at your scan details. (3) Action button should not be so far down in the screen. (4) Need to be able to retroactively change the display features of scans in the history if you accidentally had the wrong filter specified when scanning. (5) Need to be able to rename colors in the scan history before saving to a folder. (6) Need to be able to MOVE scans from history, instead of having to SAVE and then DELETE, especially when the scan color names are not very unique and hard to track. ACCURACY is good when scanning professionally prepared paint samples and surfaces. However, when scanning painted surfaces and samples at home the hue number seems to vary up to 5% depending which part of the surface I measure. That is enough to change the sample from a 5 star to a 4 star match with the actual known color formula. MATH SEEMS WRONG. There seems to be something wrong with the Coordinating Colors algorithms. None of the functions seem to be mathematically accurate. e.g. The Complimentary button gives me a nearby color instead of an opposite one. BETTER THAN PAINT STORE. It is really great that the tool allows you to scan stained surfaces and get a pretty good match. You can't get that at Home Depot because their color match system can't read surfaces like that (or so the employees say, anyway.)
