Outstanding App

Had damaged a wall that was covered in 30 year old paint from a defunct company. Used the color muse which scanned and gave results that I could take to Home Depot and have a custom mix. When I brought the paint home it appeared way off, but I did some touch test work. Once it dried, the paint was dead on! We are completely sold on the app and device!

Handy little thing

I bought this for my wife about a year ago. We played with it some, but we had already repainted our house, so it was more of a gimmick. We recently bought a new house and this little thing has come in very handy. I have tested it against paint samples and it has matched every one of them. I used it on the walls that have been painted for 2 years and it provided me with the correct paint color we used so we could patch holes. It is also handy to keep the color palette on so we have the colors at hand whenever we are out and about.

Super helpful! Need PMS colors, too!!

I work in interior design, and so I need to pull a paint color from something random a lot. A LOT. This lil tool + app is a lifesaver!

One request: it would be incredibly helpful to pull the PMS (Pantone Matching System) colors from a scan. It would make working with graphic designers much easier!!
