I thought this app was great at first. I only decided to buy Behr paint because I didn't want to spend my money on a bunch of sample paints and they were the only brand to have an app where I could actually see the colors on the walls with different lighting and furniture. So I went ahead and bought the paint according to how it looked in the photos. Home Depot wouldn't let me buy in store so I had to order online but I wasn't worried. Even if it wasn't exactly what I wanted, at least it would be similar to the photos, right? Wrong. I ordered the color "Rouge Charm" which appeared to be a light/medium purple/red. It looked a bit dark when I opened the can but I thought it would take it's true hue on the wall. I started painting on a small wall. It was definitely not the color I was expecting but I tried to keep an open mind. I decided to paint the next wall, I thought it might look better on a bigger wall that caught more light. It looked even worse. I thought I was purchasing a light purple and I got a dark red. Now I'm out $65 because I bought 2 cans of useless paint and I can't return it. I will be buying paint from a different brand after I save up enough money to do so. This is why I am most angry, not everyone has the extra money to buy a bunch of samples. The reason I used this app was to save money and make my life easier but it just made things more difficult. It makes no sense to have an app to view colors when it's not even accurate. Very dishonest.
I Love It!
I see a lot of 1 & 2 star reviews, but I love this app! I spend hours on this thing. I have found it to be user friendly, although they may have made improvements since previous reviews. I have completed 2 projects using this app as a starting point and so far it's been great! Of course, you should do a sample first to be sure you like the color. But overall, in my opinion, it is a really great app. And if you don't like it, you can always delete it.
Initiative but no follow through
The app appears to be very helpful, but it's not user-friendly. They should have had 'real' people try the app before launch. Getting back to saved projects is difficult to find. Adding a specific color is difficult, and suggestion for color inspiration should be included. You should also be able to upload your own photo, like the website (which has its own glitches). I was excited at first, but grossly disappointed. I hope they make some changes!
