Good app

This is a very good app except for one thing sometimes the lighting is weird and you get a different color then way it looks in real life if you’re using this app for a something important scan multiple times

This app is Underrated!

This app gives you variety of the color that you are looking for, most times it’ll give you the exact color your looking for.

With the Basic, NTC, Behr and other scenarios it’ll show you different colors as well!

I live for it! It helps me indicate what color I’m looking for especially for Art and fashion and to top it all off, it’ll give me other shades to choose from.

Thank you for this app! It’ll be on my device for a long long time!

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.
