Unintuitive, useless, and not true to color

I don’t know who this program is targeted to. I’m just a regular DIYer trying to coordinate painting rooms in my house. The Behr app allows you to “paint” walls with multiple shades in a room (I’m trying a two-tone color in my room). This app doesn’t give you a whole palette of colors. Or if it does, I can’t figure it out. Then, when you key in the color codes from the paint chips you get from Lowe’s, the colors rendered in the app are NOWHERE near the color on the card. Check out the Behr app. It’s fun, easy, and intuitive.

As I recall there was a prior app that would allow the user to see full color palettes. I have no idea how this app should be used as colors just show up in what seems to be a random list. Any guidance from the developer would be appreciated. Not intuitive at all.

Colors on screen aren’t “true”

This app didn’t help since the colors aren’t accurate to what they look like in real life. Also, there doesn’t seem to have a way to put a desired color on a pic of our room.
