Absolutely rubbish (sorry, HD)


I love my trips to Home Depot just as much as the next person, but this app was a major let-down. Since my iPad doesn't let me download apps anymore (go figure), I downloaded this paint app to my phone for my next paint project. But here's the catch: it doesn't work on the phones. Whomever's idea it was to change it for whichever update changed it from working on phones, you'd better hurry up and change it back, because this isn't working, and from the looks of the other reviews I read (to see if this 'glitch' happened to anyone else), people aren't happy. Not to mention, it asked for my email address? Unless you explain why you need my email on an app for testing paint colours, you might want to take that feature off the board, as well.

Thats all I have to say for now.

iPad functionality

eraser tool

After the October 26 update the app no longer functions properly with iPad or iPhone. I’m experiencing myriad problems, that render the app virtually worthless. It's was a very useful tool, and I utilized it frequently when providing visual examples of wall color suggestions to a decorating group. I recommended this app on a regular basis to group members, and they were extremely pleased to have such a good tool. In reading the reviews, I’ve noticed that reviews prior to the October update were generally favorable. However, it was evident that I am not the only one experiencing major difficulties post update. It is to be hoped you will soon remedy this problem and provide an update.

This app is awesome!!! I'm kind of surprised at all the bad reviews. I've had absolutely no problem with the app. It has made picking new colors so much easier. I have no issues with giving an e-mail address. It's a free, awesome app; if they want to send me junk mail, let them. (I haven't gotten any though...) Great job Home Depot.
