useless for color matching
I moved into a house, and I’m trying to match the color that’s already on the walls. This app doesn’t help, but the brightness and white balance (sunlight vs. fluorescent, etc) drastically changes the results. I have a Behr color sample card from Home Depot, and this app can’t match the card! When I know exactly what the card is, and the app gives totally wrong results, then the color matching is useless. There should be a way to adjust for brightness and white balance based on a calibrated card. Next I’m going to try adjusting brightness and white balance myself using white/gray/black cards with my camera, and do the adjustments manually in photoshop, and use the resulting photo in this app. That might work, but I’m not holding my breath.
Overall this app is really helpful for viewing sample colors, however I wish there was a way to save a bunch of color choices to one project instead of having to create a new 'project' for every shade. I always choose several shades and mull them over before I decide on one, which I think is what most people do. So all this needs is an improvement in user interface. Otherwise it's pretty solid.
I like this app because when I'm daydreaming about what color would look best in a room or what color coordination I want, this gives me a quick visual of what that might look like. Don't plan on it being a perfect match since obviously there's a difference between digital color and actual paint on a wall. But it's definitely close enough to be useful as it's meant to be.
