Cant get a good color match
I tried the app in various lighting conditions (full sun, indirect cloudy, indirect clear, incandescent, random available) on a DE chip set as well as test panels painted w known DE colors. Never got anywhere near matching the known colors.
To be fair part of this is no doubt the iphone camera mangling the colors to make them look natural(this was apparent on the chip set shots, which the camera “adjusted” with a strong blue tinge) To be practical, so what? Its still useless for color identification.
There may be ways to trick the camera(maybe put a white mask around the color sample so it decides to white balance?)
This is not an app to try out different D-E paint colors on your walls. It's an app to analyze the colors in a picture (of a flower, stone wall, etc.) and tell you the D-E colors that match it.
The accuracy of the app depends on the accuracy/lighting of the colors in the photo. For example, I took a picture of my living room walls, which are painted in a D-E color. The app does not return that color, but I think it's because my iPhone is adjusting something in the exposure (maybe it's looking for a face!).
What's the point?
The Behr app and the Sherwin-Williams app let me try different colors on the walls of my house, using photos I had taken of my house. The Dunn-Edwards app only tells me what color the walls already are or allows me to match the color of a picture of a flower. Nice. If I look up a Dunn-Edwards paint color by name or number I still can't try it out on the photo of my wall. What's the point?
Also the App support isn't for the app itself but how to pick a paint color. Why call it app support?
