Love this app

So far, I love this app. I had a fabric I was struggling to match. I just shot a pic and let this app give it a name, the color mix, as well as complementary colors and triadic palette. Incredible!

Fun and useful

Such fun to explore color. Also, really useful for my eBay sales of designer and vintage clothing. Now I have a helpful source of descriptive names for the colors of fabrics. Love this app.

In the ballpark, much potential

I like this app for what it is trying to do, and I find it gets in the ballpark but is not spot on. I think the device camera, lighting (color temperature of bulbs) and display (true tone or not) are variables that must be just right in order to get close to the color being captured, or approximated.

I did purchase the extended color sets, which are nice to have.

One suggestion I have is for the Search / color picker mode: provide an option to change the background color from white to black (or also grey)... when color matching to a real world sample using a light emitting screen, white light can visually bias the comparison.
