Works great 5/5
I was apprehensive because people were complaining that the app didn't work as stated. But I was impressed that I could pick a color and tap on the screen where my wall was and it would change the color so that I could actually see what that color would look like with my flooring and furniture. Impressive!
Does not work with my iPad
Colors don’t match 1/5
The colors used to paint the scene are way lighter than the actual colors
Only helpful for looking up colors 1/5
You can’t do accent walls or different walls different colors, you can’t drag different colors next to each other to compare them side by side, and you can’t save and edit a scene... very frustrating
Paint visualizer is all or nothing 2/5
It’s easy to pick out the paint. But the visualizer has as all or nothing approach where the walls look poorly painted or the entire room, light fixtures and furniture, even flooring become that color. Doesn’t help visualize at all.
Very weak 1/5
Difficult to navigate and use. Should be able to take a picture and do 2, 3, 4 colors. Nope 1. All colors look bland. Poorly designed and executed. In today’s day and age this should be far far better. Don’t bother downloading.
Doesn’t Work as I Thought 1/5
By BAM Global
Why do you have a step to choose a photo and it won’t load the photo? What’s the point? Very frustrating!
When I try to test color on pictures either paints entire image or not what I want. Was going to test different colors for upper and lower kitchen cabinets
I added it to use the color visual feature. Except that feature doesn’t work well at all. Waste of time.
I took the pic of my room, chose colors. When I tried to apply the colors it applied them splotchy. Including parts of the ceiling, ceiling fan and furniture.
This app is horrible and a waste of time. I do t think it will work unless you already have crisp lines and a super hq picture because the color just goes everywhere blotchy.
This app is terrible when it comes to painting your own scene 1/5
When you click a space on the wall to paint it washes the entire picture in that color.
Worthless unless using for walls only 1/5
It only allows you to paint walls. I am trying to visualize my cabinets painted and it will not do it. Overall a clunky app.
Frustrating and glitchy 1/5
Not easy to use. Requires logins and kicked me off frequently. Removing from phone and going back to website version. Disappointing.
Limited in use 2/5
Good if you want to take a picture and have it pick out colors from the picture - however, if you want to visualize a new color scheme using a picture of your walls it is useless.
It is very easy to identify wherein Williams. Plots but if you can apply those colors to walls in a picture I was not able to figure out how to do it.
Many other apps out there that are much better at visualization.
Extremely Helpful! 5/5
App works great at visualizing all paint colors.
Love this app 5/5
By Deacon Mitch
We remodeled two rooms in our house. The app experience made it easy to pick just the right to do both rooms. SW nailed it!
Not Useful 1/5
From the preview pics of the app it looks like you can try colors out on a picture you provide - nope. It's really just a color picker... that's it. Glad it was free.
By Driod to Apple
I read through some of the reviews and don’t understand if their are higher expectations for a free app, but this was super helpful when repainting 90% of my house.
I found colors I liked on the app and then went to Lowe’s to grab the samples.
Color snap 1/5
Everything is great if you enjoy a app that has absolutely no use whatsoever 👎
Close to useless 2/5
By jd catmom
Notice I said close. It did manage to tell me my cat is orange. Lemons are ‘cheerful’. Quests that is close. Seems to get reds & yellows ok. But persistently identifies greens as either beige or silver. & as another person notes you can’t actually upload your own room picture to try on a color. It’s amusing but not worth the space on my phone. Gone
Everything is brown 1/5
By Bob cfii
I took a picture of an interior door that is “polar bear white” and the app said it was various shades of brown.
Love but needs a couple of changes 4/5
LOVE!!! I especially love that I can take a photo and it will find colors with in the picture to match. Perfect bc we are getting wood floors and I’d like find a wall color.
I love that I can start a strip of colors and see what it would look like in a living room, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom & exterior of home. Plus it gives a daylight and night time exchange which is awesome and has helped in my choices so much.
Fixes I would like to see: I’d love to be able to tap on a wall to choose a different/coordinating color. Right now I can only choose one color for the entire room.
-It would be cool if I could use one of my own photos to put a color on the wall. Or maybe whatever I tapped on would change color.
-when I search for a color I do like that it also shows other colors with similar names. I want there to be an option so it would take me to the color I want on the “explore color” screen so I can look at surrounding colors.
All in all this is a great & useful app!
It’s good but.. 3/5
It would be a better app if the sample options had more than just white woodwork and trim. Some of us are stuck for, the time being, with honey oak or cherry. I’d like to see my color choices with something other than just white.
Wish I could give a 0. App does not work. You download a picture but can not paint on it. Complete waste of time.
Not iPad compatible 1/5
Not at all usable with iPad. Displays too large so parts of pages are unreadable.
Doesn't work 1/5
I just went to Lowe's and got a color palette book. Wanted to see what the color would look like on a house. NONE of the colors exist in the app. The app is hard to navigate (and I WORK in tech). The Color Visualizer on their website is more of the same. Do not recommend.
Doesn’t recognize and match its own SW colors 1/5
Took multiple photos of varying light of just a wall of SW paint and the app never matched the paint or even identified the same color palette.
By Willy Plummer
The IG ad made this app seem like it does something other than it does, which was a great idea. Instead this app is boring and unhelpful.
False advertisement. If I would have read the reviews versus what was falsely advertised I wouldn’t have downloaded app. Bought a new house and wanted to see if the colors would look nice. No go! They have a preloaded picture for you to use instead of using a picture of your own room. Can’t even upload a photo of the room I want to paint to even get a better idea. Will continue to go with the old school route-get swatch colors of interest and put them up on a wall to narrow it done. Then get the sample paints of each and make a foolproof decision from that. This method never fails for me.
Not as it appears 2/5
By color me fooled
I downloaded the app because it appeared you could take a picture of your room and use the app to choose and color and and see what the color looks like in the photo of your room. that's not what it does. Disappointed.
Not worth the download 1/5
If you want this to paint your room, this is not the app for you. It doesn't give that option on this iPhone version.
Love it! 4/5
It took time to figure out how to use it, & it's great. My only complaint is that there is so much white in the sample rooms that it overwhelms the color I want to see. And some of the rooms have very little wall space & big furniture. Please show more paint!
The photo doesn't match the item 1/5
I tried to find colors of my couch and no matter what picture I use, the interface doesn't match correctly. It's a grey couch. No blue in it at all. Every time I try to match, it only gives me blue and white options. It's bad.
I love this app so much! 5/5
We are in the process of restoring a farmhouse so apps like this really come in handy.
I also used the Sherwin Williams color wheel a few years ago while living in Dallas I painted my entire apartment! Fun!
Where's the camera for painting my own room?? 2/5
App is a bit clunky to navigate but my biggest problem is I can't find where I can 'paint' my own room! That's why I downloaded it to begin with!
Not very intuitive and can't show you your room 2/5
You cannot choose a color and see it in the walls of your own room in a photo. Only on the sample room photo. It's also not very intuitive to use. At all.
Don't use this app! 1/5
Used this app to select the color of the trim on our house being built. Totally wrong color, cost us around a thousand dollars. The color on the app did not even come close to the actual Sherwin Williams color.
Don't know how to use it.
Took a picture of my room and try to see it in a different color but it changes the picture that is at the bottom of the app.
Can't even match its own paint chips! 1/5
By Frustrated Mel13
I was hoping this app would help pick paint colors without having to knock on people's doors and ask if they know what paint color is on their house. I wanted to try out it's accuracy so I tried it out on paint chips at my local Sherwin Williams store. No luck on any I tried! I think that needs to be fixed. It really should be able to pick up the color on your own paint chips.
This app is deceiving and makes it look like you can take a picture of your room and then change the wall colors and trim etc. that is not this app! You take a pic of your room and then it tells you the colors in that room. What's the point in that?
Huge huge waste of time and iPhone space 1/5
I saw an add that showed taking a pic of your room and adding a color to your wall to see how it looks. THAT IS NOT POSSIBLE ON THIS APP, NOT POSSIBLE AT ALL. I spent a lot more time I care to admit trying to figure out this app before coming to the reviews and seeing that nearly everyone had the same impression I did and could not add colors to their own rooms either
This app literally just inaccurately tells me what color different things in my room are... for example it judges my baby blue room as a charcoal gray.
False Advertising at its Finest 1/5
The ad makes it appear that you can try out colors on your walls... no dice. It has cool features, I will say that, but I only downloaded it because of the feature that was implied.
I got the app bc it said I could take a pic and use a color on the walls to see if it looks good. This app doesn't have that feature.
Use IPAD Only App! 5/5
This app does work if you use it on your phone, but you can not picture in your wall in the phone app. Only the iPad app can you use a photo of your house. I used it on my iPad and it works wonderfully.
Don't use this to match pre-existing Sherwin Williams colors. 1/5
We've used Sherwin Williams paint exclusively since we built our home. They keep records of the paint colors on file for us. Today we went in and the guy couldn't find them (new guy). He said just use the app. Well I used it on 2 walls that I still have the cans for, so I know the exact color names. The app doesn't not work. It pulled up colors that are way different. I tried using lots of light, flash, etc. nothing close is pulled up. Tricorn black should be easy and it didn't even match that one. Good luck. I'm not going with their suggestions.
You may ask how it works. IT DOESN'T 1/5
The app is false advertisement, it doesn't work, and is a piece of trash. Don't download this.
Worst app ever. 1/5
Nothing about this app is smart or easy to use. Unbelievable difficult and unhelpful.
I love this app 5/5
By Emily Nolin
I adore this app. I am very deliberate about apps on my phone. I am so minimal with them. I am moving to Asheville with my family and I am in charge of the color so I am looking for perfect paints. I went to Sherwin Williams today and found the color chips that I liked; I had already downloaded this app. I am blown away with the way that this works. It is so amazing. It gives you such a good idea of the way the colors will look in the rooms. Between going into the store and using this app, I have VERY EASILY, VERY ENJOYABLY found colors that I adore for our rooms in our new home. This is exactly the way I envisioned apps-- practical, useful, easy-to-use, leading-edge, enjoyable and fun. This has been a pleasure to use and has helped me so much in my move. I love this app and it's a value to this store, ensuring just another reason for customers to use SW paint. Thank you!!!
Does not work as advertised 1/5
Doesn't let you take a pic and apply colors as it states.
