Not worth the FREE download


Love my Depot...never the blue store!! BUT—-this app is boasted about on the Depot commercials, and it completely fails to meet the Home Depot experience I have grown to feel is home when away from home, thinking of how to better it. Sadly, this app does not come close to matching the marketing ads that tout its abilities.

While, yes, it loads on an iPhone - - -it is completely useless on it unless you intend on take no a picture of a blank wall with no accessories, windows or furniture. It does not rotate to landscape view, and if you select a picture taken in landscape mode, it crops 2/3 of the image out leaving you a useless sliver of the picture. Also, there appears to be no zooming into the picture to ‘fine-tune’ busy areas that may confuse the app. I don’t fault the app for not being able to fully identify everything in the picture that the human eye would, but you need to offer the ability for the user to edit or fix those incidences.

Sorry, Home Depot...time to go back to the drawing board on this app, its quality is something I would expect from the BLUE store!

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.

Way too limited


Only good to look up color swatches. Limited usability to preview paint colors. > Have colors on old cans’ paint lids that the app cannot find?! What do you mean it does not exist? I have the can to prove it!!! > Completely fails to scan colors in real life (tried for a half hour to see if it can find the known color I painted a wall years ago, tried for a half hour on an unknown wall with similar color - close, farther back, ... using iphone 8 natural light, artificial, flashlight etc ) > Needs the full color swatch foldout as seen in stores or which pros carry > Needs to have close color matches that are off by a certain anoubt of tint (like small store swatches) > Needs to allow saving colors we looked up as favorites or as ideas > needs to allow tagging colors as house x, kitchen, 2017
