Ratings and Reviews
A Tragedy of an App
How is this app so SO bad? It’s by far the worst I’ve tried so far, and that’s really saying something. I tried to select the exterior of a bright tan house surrounded by blue sky and vibrant greenery. It should not be a problem to differentiate the areas in order to apply a bucket fill (the only option to try a paint out) to just the bright tan house. However, it paints everything the new color - sky, grass, EVERYTHING. The eraser tool is a farce. It randomly works and randomly doesn’t. The app also doesn’t sample the existing color you’re laying paint over, so where it does apply, the new color is completely changed by the underlying color. That’s a serious issue when trying to visualize COLOR. Sherwin Williams should have never launched this app. It’s embarrassingly awful.
Lear How to Use
This app is great. I was worried it wouldn’t work based on negative reviews. You have to learn how to use it. If you click on paint a scene, you have to choose a color either new or from your saved SW paint perks colors, then it will access your camera. It does at first, take you to a pre loaded scene, but go back to the camera live using the arrow at the top, then touch the screen and it will load it to your own live picture. It just takes a little exploring, but it does work. It may not be flawless but it’s the best I have used to get a color on your own actual wall to see what it will look like. I’m not sure the color it paints is very accurate. I wouldn’t choose a color based on this first. I would choose a color you really like, then put it in this app to get a “general” idea what it will look like. All electronic devices are going to vary in their pixels and look different. The chip is still going to be the most accurate.
I love this app
I adore this app. I am very deliberate about apps on my phone. I am so minimal with them. I am moving to Asheville with my family and I am in charge of the color so I am looking for perfect paints. I went to Sherwin Williams today and found the color chips that I liked; I had already downloaded this app. I am blown away with the way that this works. It is so amazing. It gives you such a good idea of the way the colors will look in the rooms. Between going into the store and using this app, I have VERY EASILY, VERY ENJOYABLY found colors that I adore for our rooms in our new home. This is exactly the way I envisioned apps-- practical, useful, easy-to-use, leading-edge, enjoyable and fun. This has been a pleasure to use and has helped me so much in my move. I love this app and it's a value to this store, ensuring just another reason for customers to use SW paint. Thank you!!!
