I found this program helpful. If you have used any apps that let you adjust color and light or face tones on a picture this will help. I notice that the color that goes over the picture is slightly translucent to allow seeing the image of the home behind it. So I feel it doesn’t give the true color. I would loosely compare it to looking like one coat of paint instead of the final two coats. But it certainly helps one think through what direction to head for!
Just use the web browser experience; the app isn't worth the frustration
I previously used the desktop site for planning the color updates we wanted to make to our living room. It was a little tedious on a laptop, much like trying to map out a route on a web browser to gauge distance walked. I was excited to learn there's an iPad app, especially since I just got an apple pencil as a gift. I was convinced it would make it easier to draw out the sections to color.
unfortunately that is not the case. I'm using the app on a new iPad air (4th gen) and it's super buggy to the point of being unusable. Sure the pencil helps make drawing th areas easier, but the app just selects and fills in whatever it thinks was your focus. It's super unintuitive to figure out how to select a previously drawn section without filling it with the wrong color. I need to draw selections because my condo used to be a rental and every wall/ceiling is the exact same color, so the AI for knowing the different surfaces just can't work well, given that there is no native distinction in the pixels.
Since the pencil was so much easier to use, I thought I'd try the desktop site on my mobile browser. But alas, their sniffing outmy device type and the mobile site experience is not available. They force you to use this barely functional app when using the iPad. I wish there was a way to bypass, but I can't find one. bummer.

Great feedback smash, this is very helpful. I know it's not solving the issues you're seeing right now but will help us going forward. Thanks!
This Review is Relating to Apple Mobil Devices: IPad Pro;IPad Air2; and the iphone7#. NOT Desktops.
-2 Selection to Paint is sporadic meaning sometimes it will pick up an entire area not requested; other times no matter what tools are used the defined area only grabs small portions. Consistent & repetitive no matter how slowly or specific the attempt.
-3 will often get message that the paint number or name cannot be found when I have found both previously when doing a paint search to add to my shortlist colors
-4 receive message that ColorSnap is working on the problem when not able to receive requested info and then has gone on for 1-3 days!
-5 would like to create more colors than what is allowed for comparisons & not have to delete others I am considering
-6 would like to immediately save to a named folder or file for future use or reference
-7 I love the ‘Compare Colors’ option that allows you to change the colors to place side by side; move the colors to create different scenarios for visuals to show clients
Developer Response ,
Ace, this is some of the best feedback we've ever received. Thank you. I can honestly say we are working on almost all of these right now so thank you. You're right, on the message we sent, we had a planned outage for a little under a day so apologies for the troubles. If you have any other thoughts, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
