Updates needed

Would like to see color finder. Like on the color chart, be able to click the color and it shows where that individual color goes. A lot of the color are very similar and hard to read. Don’t get me wrong I’ve figured it out but would like to make it easier especially when mixing both perler and Hama. Could we make that possible please.

We need to update new Perler colors!

Since Perler had been adding more colors, it would be nice to have them all available in the app!
This is not a free app, I think it would be nice to have the new colors on the scheme!
That would be very appreciated!

fine on iPad, not on iPhone

Tried this app both on the iPhone and the iPad.

If this review were for the iPhone version I would give it 1 star. When creating patterns on the iPhone it has a tough time recognizing the colors and, especially next to the boundaries of 2 colors. For example if there was a red box with a black border, it may decide to throw in some brown beads where it goes from black to red. This is fine if the image were too big so it was compressing the picture down to an acceptable size, but these pictures were around 30x30 pixels. Also if the image had a definte solid color to it, it would change this to 2 colors, almost like it couldn't find an appropriate color and was attempting to average them by using 2 different color beads. I ran it with a picture that had only 5 colors, and the result came back requiring 12 colors.

When I got frustrated of trying to get it to work on the iPhone I pulled out the iPad and did the same process I was doing on the iPhone and it worked so much better. The results came out with the correct number of colors and looking good. Like a previous review said, sometimes the color matching for the Perler beads is a bit off. I noticed a lot of orange where I know it is red. Also a lot of plum or browns where I know it is black.

1 star for iPhone, 4 stars for iPad
