The biggest thing I use a paint app for is to get a suggestion of coordinating colors - which this app appears to do by displaying a room with presumably the choice color and other attractive complementing hues splashed throughout the space. However, when selecting any of the colors, it doesn’t tell you what they are! It only shows them as hex codes. The scene it shows isn’t of your own space, but an existing image from Houzz that has similar colors but I doubt its using actual choice colors from Valspar. Since it doesn’t suggest the specific name of similar colors that the scene is displaying, it’s moot.

There’s also this odd prominent button to “connect to device” which I can only think is like if you had Alexa. I don’t see how that prominently displayed icon is more important than a button that doesn’t appear to exist that lets you upload a photo or paint a live scene using your camera. I’m not going to download an app and sync Alexa to say “hey Alexa tell me a color I should use on this app that doesn’t work!” I’m going to take those steps I’d just Google it. Very confused as to what that is supposed to do or much of the app for that matters.

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.

Perfect for me

I don't understand all the complaints! This app did exactly what I wanted: I searched for the name of the color that's on my wall and then looked for other colors that are complimentary, lighter, etc. It's a perfect way to get started on my project! Of course the color on your screen isn't "true"--no screen can be, which is why you get a paint sample and put it on your wall. But if you need to compare colors, it's great. I especially love that it can compare across brand lines. Thanks!
