Misses the mark

Very disappointed with this app. The displayed colors are not accurate and do not match the color of the corresponding chips. I brought home more than a half dozen chips to decide which to use in our den. I then, after reading the back of the chips, downloaded the app to see whether more color choices were available. There were. However, when I located any chip color on the online screen, invariably the actual color chip was several shades darker than the screen. I wanted a lighter shade than the color chip and could not determine whether a lighter choice was offered. In addition, when I tried color matching any of the chips using the app, none of the three choices offered matched the chip. MORE work needs to be done on color matching and and Behr needs to explain that screen colors are significantly affected by the color settings of the display screen and that lighting at home may (probably won’t) match that in the lab, also affecting color matching through the app.

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.

Not enough options available

This app could be better if, after you do a color match by using a photo of an object painted in a color that you are interested in, it would show not just the preset palettes that came with the app but palettes with colors that are similar to the color you are interested in. Right now the palettes revealed start with your color of interest and other colors they claim will work with your color and then when you click the ‘Similar’ button you get a couple of palettes that are no where near the same part of the spectrum as you started with. Also, you don’t ever get an option of seeing it in the different textures like Satin for exterior stucco or Hi-gloss for bathrooms. Also, the consumer should be able to save way more favorite colors , like way more and more than that, in the app and then easily transfer them to a most favorite favorite spot so they know which samples to get or order. Then from there it should be put into an Already Tried Out section so you don’t waste time and money with samples of colors you decided not to get. One more thing, it would be nice if after a color match you could adjust the color by adding a little grey, or adding a little white, making it lighter, softer, deeper, denser. By clicking a few scales and spitting out the name of the color that best fits what you just edited.
