Mr JR

Promise but falls short Great idea. But how hard would it really be to allow for pictures of the actual space you are looking to paint. I also want to be able to paint wood cabinets and furniture too. The home depot machine has a better interface. This seems like an earlier version.

laura Thomas

Fun but also aggravating They need more basic rooms to choose from when testing colors. Aggregates me when I have to back all the way out of the rooms when changing colors. I would also like to change the color on furniture! (Bedding, counters & such) to better match my own.

Michelle Baker

Non effective I need an app that will show me what MY house will look like painted. This app does not let me color my own house..

Kathy Mazalewski

Useless to me The two colors I wanted to see are for "Exclusive Areas". I wanted to see if the two colors I was looking at would work to distinguish the kitchen from the dining room, living room and entryway. Why have an app to help decorate if all colors are not included? Colors I was looking for were Shiny Luster and White Metal.

Gabe Hatchett

Not impressed The color match option was WAYYY off. I had a picture of a white wall in my living room that matched to a grey color. Not accurate at all. There's no way to put colors on the picture of your own wall. If there is I can't figure out how to do it. There are very minimal color options, not nearly as many as are offered at home depot. So a color you see at the store you can't necessarily see on your wall.

Akia Allen

The app is great. The only thing is when I tap a room to test paints on they zoom in and don't come back out. Also it would be great if I could use my own pictures to test paints on

Jennifer Stroud

Didn't work Thumbs down! The app kept telling me to check my Internet connection when trying to view the colors chosen in a room setting. I tried with and without wifi but it still wouldn't work. I had 4G service and the wifi was working with other apps and Internet windows.

Rachal Flewellen

Doesn't work Every time I try to preview a color in a room it will tell me "error updating preview. Please check internet connection and try again." My connection is 100%. I downloaded this app because the website wasn't working properly for me. It's really unfortunate because I'm desperate to paint and have no way to see how the colors work with Behr. I prefer Behr but if I can't use the app or site, I might as well go with a different brand.

Simon Collier

Error prone but useful for colour combinations As with other reviewers I find the app errors when trying to preview a colour in a room. Also errors when selecting a photo to upload if the photo is not stored on the phone (most are online albums in Google Photos). However, it's useful for suggesting colours that work well together.

Sonya Pietrogiacomo

Great Concept, but..... When I try to apply colors to room examples I get an "error, check internet connection" message. There is NOTHING wrong with my internet connection...only this app. Please fix!!!! Then I will revise my review. I love the idea of what this app is supposed to do.

Emily Bartlett

Its ok I try to scan the barcode on the back of the coloursmart book and it doesnt work! Kinda annoying cuz I would like to see the colours on my phone on one of the rooms..

Tammy Boyd

Easy to use but freezes easily Keeps freezing up at the preview color option. Very aggravating. The only way I've found to reset it is to close it then reopen it. Other than that, it's very easy to use.

Beth Jones

Love it all! Color match is awesome. Would be nice to upload your own picture for the preview but love it

Andrina Micale

Super helpful, some limits though The color matching and browsing features are easy to use, but the preview color feature is a bit limited. Some of their sample rooms are too cluttered to be useful for previews. It would also be cool if you could add nicknames or labels to colors for projects.

David Sherrod

Broken Only scanned 1 chip, only to say the colors weren't available. Typed another color in, only to be told that it was a limited market color and wouldn't add. Couldn't even find another one. Uninstalling.

Shawn Carroll

Not all paint colors are available I wanted to use this app to visualize painting the exterior of my house,but it this app appears to have any of Behr exterior paint colors. When I scanned the Barcode on their brochure it didn't accept it.

Tracey Seutter

Useless.... Does not allow for me to input my own photos or even adequately import existing Behr pics onto exterior of another house to get an idea of complementing colours

Patricia Cardona

Really great app.Especially if you're remodeling!Just wish it had more selection's of more rooms,then I'd give it 5 star's.

Meghan Hoskins

Should be able to choose all colors This app would be better if they made ALL their colors available. The Marquee colors do not come up on here.

Sharon Sullivan

Still needs work Cant save your uploaded picture in favorites. Also it would be great if you had sample rooms like nurseries, etc.

L Barker

Misinng Home Depot Canada colours Good app in theory but all the Home Depot colours in Canada are considered premium course that can't be worked with. The colours that can be worked are not available here.

Donetta Person

Unusable until updated with new color names and numbers The app works well. I like the color matching tool. But it is all useless if you can't go to the paint store and tell them the exact color you want. All the Behr colors have been updated in the stores but not in this app. Please fix and you'll get ☆☆☆☆☆!

Tashi Newland

No textures It works great to get an idea of what colors to use. But I wish there was a way to test special finishes. For example I'm thinking of using an antique leather finish in my room.

Lisa Josephsen

Will not load We are completely remodeling our home, and I was excited about this app, since we intend to repaint the entire interior and exterior. It won't even load. Un-installing now.

SHILOH GRAHAM

amazing app! I would recommend this app toeveryone who was planning or considering a home makeover. Go for it, I bet you won't regret having done so....ENJOY &HAVE FUN!

Ramon Castillo

Can't preview colors. (FIXED) The app is great when it works and now it is. Changed my rating from 1 to 4 stars.

Jane Logsdon

Behr Color App I'm always doing some project in the house and this app has become another handy resource to utilize. While I haven't found it to be the easiest app to use, it is fantastic to see 2 colors side by side before purchasing. I would definitely recommend installing the Behr color app.

Shannen Wright

Great App Helpful to be able to calculate exactly what you need. Colors are rich and plenty to choose from. Can save projects so can remember which colors you liked.

Chloe Davidson

No Marquee I downloaded this app in home Depot for the preview function. However, it doesn't work for Marquee paints, even though the website does. Wish the site would load on my device.

Abigail Gagnon

Wish the Marquee colors were in the app Tried contacting support to have it fixed. They state the colors are in the app, but I cannot load a single one. The exterior are but not the interior. Very disappointed that this cannot be viewed on a mobile app. Works on the PC site fine. Otherwise the rest is fine.

Bambi Libersher-Aldaz

Would be awesome if I didn't have to clear my data on the app to get it to work. Then lost all of my hours of saved projects and colors... Now I know to screenshot it so that I have the color names since I'm painting my whole home. Ugh...

jennifer bostick

Want my favorites to be used I would really like it and would of gave 5 stars if I could use the colors on my favorites in the rooms to see if they go well with each other or be able to create my own pallette based on my colors not just one color but let me choose 3 or 4 that I want to go together and then use them on the rooms!

xXLoveSummerXx

Best Painting App Ever This painting app really helps me see how my room will look like because I wanted to pick the right color. I give this app a 5 out of 5.

Stacy Clark

Awesome prviews It's completely change my color choices to see them on a wall before painting. You can't upload a pic to paint, but it has sure helped me make up my mind.

Myra Martin

It's OK I don't think it offers enough coordinating colors. Hangs up sometimes ;-|

Jane Firman

I love this app but when they update the colour at home depot they should also on the app.

Raquel Rodeheaver

Can't preview colors on the walls says check Internet connection but the connection is just fine even tried uninstalling and reinstalling and still not working

Bill Wood

Will not load photo Every photo I try to use for color match has the same message: image file corrupt. Seems funny I can open the file and view it. Totally worthless app. Uninstalling.

Greg Robinson

Not All Colors Available Does not have any of the Marquee line, so this app is useless to me. Too bad, it is nice for their standard colors, but the room selection to "paint" sucks. Not nearly enough choices. I am uninstalling this app.

Roger Kay

Doesn't work Great idea but app doesn't save paints or stores after app closes. Most paints that I match don't have a corresponding chip at the local store.

ed brennan

Wanted to preview my exterior. I went looking for a way to preview what my house might look like. I hoped to see what paint and trim colors would look like together. The description of the app gave me a false hope. I could not use a photo of my house nor use the samples to see color and trim together. Good for color matching (if needed).

Dan Vardell

You'd think they know how to pick paint Hardest part of selecting paint is finding complementary colors - no help there.

P. Patterson

Worked great Loved this app. It has helped me narrow down my color choices. The only thing I would say is that they need to expand on their share options...meaning you can share your choice on various social media platforms but can't share via text.

jody sullivan

Paint a room preview I tried three different times to sample different color chips, and each time I always ended up with same color. In every category, for every room type. This was no help. I really like the paint, but the app was frustrating.

Drew Gietman

Useless Thought you could actually take a picture of a room and apply different colors to walls instead of having to imagine it...that would be useful.

Laura Helton

Didnt work for me :-\ It gives u the option to take a photo to try colors on, but i couldnt try out the colors!!!?? It would NOT color the walls? It just kept changing colors, so frustrating!!!

Joe Blow

It's color blind I took a picture of a wall painted with Swiss Coffee and no matter how far from the wall I was, or how I adjusted the camera settings or even if sunlight was lighting up the room, no matter where I tapped on the picture, it was nowhere close to Swiss Coffee.

Breanna Friloux

It doesn't work I have a iPad..still not working!!!!???

Melanie Videan

Sucks How do you get thw pic of your room to upload. Ive been trying to get the paint samples on the pic of my wall forever. I give up.

VICKI OTERO

Colorsmart I like the idea. It would be better if you could change the color of the furniture.

MARI S

Colors are way off App colors do not match paint samples from store. I also want to see what they look like in my house, not a photo of another house. Waste of time. I wanted it to work.

Shannon Woods

Colors off The app is easy to use. But... you cannot use your own photo as example, you can only use your picture to match a color. Speaking of colors, way off mark. I had a mustard yellow and a soft gray picked for my living room. When I got to home depot, my yellow was a green. So don't get your hopes up on the right color!

Ashlee Ferguson

Meh. Not really helpful. Kicked me out several times and couldn't test color on my own picture.

Olivia Johnson

Ahh I don't want to see the paint in other rooms I want to see how it would look in my room

Debra Corner

Wasn't what I thought.

Sherron Green

Disappointed Uploaded my picture. Could not figure how to see color with my picture, only the preloaded pictures came up.

Lorenzo Zabala

Great color home app Not an interior designer. Choose color without a lot of clutter. Especially good if one has fine vision or perception.

Nancy Mac

Color choice I bought a bed spread that's blue, with a del been strike. I wish I could choose or change the bedding color, then indicate the wall color.

Elsie Kane

Can't Add My Color Choice to Uploaded Pics I wanted to see the paint color I had chosen on my actual walls. That's all I wanted to do. The app would only color-match the color already there. And the sample rooms really just didn't look like my lofted entryway or any rooms in my house. The app was not useful for my purpose.

Kristen Holland

Too much It didnt match colors well at all when using their feature. Also the color samples in the store weren't even close to the color in the app. It was disappointing that I couldn't upload my room and sample a color on the wall of my room.

yashalina Blair

Too much work There was so much work to do to get accented walls, that I gave up. I also thought I could take a picture of my actual room to view, but I had to use a generic picture from their gallery.

Aly C

GREAT! TO EXPLORE COLORS! This aop is great. It helps you find more colors and allows you to envision what the color would look like! Of course its not the same as testing out the color, but if you're on a budget, or in general want to get a feel of more colors, this is a great app. Its great at what it does. . which is showing you a variety of colors, and letting you see what it would look like. Also, it helps you see if more than one color looks good together, what shades you want it, etc. Its a great app for envisioning colors.

A Google User

Dad's lil Helper This is a terrrrrific helper. Wish I would of seen this on the flyer before I spent 2 hrs. at Home Depot picking a color that now goes in the man cave instead of the living room!

Lisa Forest

Needs improvements I love being able to explore the colors. Needs: Ability to scroll through a paint colors intensity (less or more) once The right shade is chosen, not only similar shade. Need a back button feature instead of exiting app. Need to be able to add color to favorites much more easily. Need to be able to drag and drop.

Joan Clark

Not user friendly Took a picture of the room and attempted to place my color selection on the walls. Gave me other colors and not the color that I selected. Will delete this app, not very helpful.

Raquel Gorman

Horribly designed app Color chips are too small and when you click on them, the app assumes you are picking that color. Instead, I would have liked to see the color larger. It also would be nice if I could upload a picture of my actual room that I want to paint to see the paint colors in it, instead of using some ugly designer room that looks nothing like a room in reality. If there are going to be only options to choose from, they could at least offer a better variety.

Yvette Mitchell

Stuck on stupid App is not equipped to flow from one color scheme to another. It keeps going to one color that you accidentally selected and you cannot start a new project whether it's kitchen bedroom dining room anything.

Melissa Mulvihill

I love the layout and how useful this app could be if it was not crashing all of the time. As well, it is not saving projects correctly. I used to be able to save projects but now when I save it's saving them over and over and over and over everytime I add a color. Please fix.

Ben Quintero

Ive Seen Better The only plus is that Behr colors are listed... The preview options are limited; cant paint cabinets in any scene. You cant make custom palettes. You cant ask to view colors in the family. Lots of limitations, not many bonuses.

Tim Ng

Save projects not load after update App crashed when tried to open previously saved projects

Baileyann Benjamin

Used it to paint my office the color of my boyfriends eyes Now I'm gonna have to find something that'll cover this brown.

warren cole

Very good app

John Enzien

Color smart by behr Shutdowns whenever i use it on my tablet. Does not work

Casey Halbash

Not like the commercial Gives you templates to play around with that's it. Nothing like the commercial, you can't see the colors on photos you take. Pretty pointless.

Andre Mitchell

It Backtracks The user interface is pretty good. The color preview is okay but Behr needs to develop more basic rooms, or interchange, to get a better feel for the palettes. My BIGGEST issue is with the previous era of colors generating with a current color entry for paint schemes! Why waste time with a new color wall with new swatches at THD if I'm given suggestions with older colors????

Warren Bueche

Pointless It does not allow you to take a photo and change the color of the walls in the photo, thus rendering this app completely useless to anyone who watches the commercials on television and think they can demo new colors on their own house.

Bonnie Poland

Needs improvement Why not have kitchen cabinets that can be colored like in the store? Why not have an app for computer so we can see on bigger screen

Liz Scanlon

Not user Friendly or Time Friendly Offers a few houses to paint and when you try and change colors, gets stuck and won't update. I had to start whole procedure again. Horrible and needs improvement, very disappointing quality. Shame on this company, get someone to design your App who understands what they are doing. Left me disgusted and frustrated.

Danielle M

If you're trying to use this app as the commercial depicts don't bother. Taking a photo of a room is only for attempting to colour match the current wall colour to their product. Also this colour may vary on accuracy depending on the light sensor quality in your device. If you were looking to take a photo of a room and overlay different options you've been deceived like I was. Uninstalled app.

Ryan Konkin

Some what Functions Have had zero success in ot telling me the right color on my walls. (Yes i know the color they are). Would also like to see a feature to up load my own picture to color.

Kimberly McGinnis

The app is okay, you cant go back to your previous choices or mix and match your own colors. Had a few colors selected and now I cant get back to them. The is no back or previous button. This app needs work, this was working from my laptop not on my phone.

Tabatha Trotter

I can't upload my own room On behr online you can paint your own room which I would say is super helpful but it buffers every 2 or 3 clicks, so your always refreshing. On this app you can't do that at all and that would be great if we could.

Lance Green

Terrible I often wonder if people test apps after they make them. Hey, I like those colors...save. Ok, check out some others...sorry, overwrote your save. Good luck finding those colors again. Worthless.

Celine Bucal

Does not work Don't download this app, it doesn't preview the paint of the room at all!

Jennifer Walters

Misleading I thought I would actually get to sample the color on my own uploaded photo. So it was useless to what I wanted.

April Villone

Love it! So useful. Easy to use. It is very helpful to be able to go into the store with a set of colors to try.

Rachel Whitman

House Need to have an option to take a picture of the rooms in your house so we can try the colors that we want

Veronica Ena

Not what I want it I can't paint my picture, I can't make my combination , at the end it was more easy just to get the panel colors at the store

Jennifer Harroun

I like this but needs something It would be great to be able to save individual paint colors without having to save as a project, just as a save favorite colors list. Thank you.

Cindy La Brecque

Thought I could use my own image I love Behr Paint, but I don't like the app. I couldn't use my own image, and couldn't even get their samples up. The other paint company you can use your image, but I don't like their paint. I guess I'll do it the old school way and delete this useless app.

Jeneane Phillips

Does not give you your picture

Kenneth Jenkins

Better than the Home Depot App. Would love to see a way to change roof color.

Tommy Drew

This app has no flexibility. Want to paint the exterior with color scheme of my choosing but program won't let me select trim compliments and I don't like the ones app suggests if It does its not intuitive. Virtually useless.

Bill Schmidt

Doesn't work. Take a picture and it gives me three god awful choices to choose from. Can't enter my own colors. Terrible app

Batiste Tucker

Galaxy Note 5 Another app that doesn't do what the consumers / users need it to do, which is utilize their own photos of their own rooms for a truer perspective of what they intend to do. Why do you need access to the camera if we cannot use our own photos, why do you need access to our accounts, to read them ? You Developers Need to start Listening and paying Attention to the reviews !

Melinda Wedgewood

Great for ideas Would get 5 if you could preview using your own photos!

Suzanne Asensio

freezes on android tablet Can't preview anything, freezes while trying to load room images. perhaps not tablet compatible.

Laurel Helms

I would like it a lot better if you take a picture of the actual room your going to paint and try the colors on the actual items. Would make things a lot easier.

Teresa Dietlin

I can't upload my own room to view the color.

James Schellhorn

Nice I work for home depot and have shown customers this app and they loved it.

Mal Str

Great idea, but useless the way it's set up

Alison Ristovski

Can't see my own colors together. I can look up one color to preview it in a room, but I can't add another color that I've chosen to the preview.

Judy Weber

It's OK I like the fact that you can upload your own picture and scan barcodes to see what paint selections are available. The problem is that you cannot apply the new paint colors to your own picture. Create a solution to this problem you would have a 5 star app.

Janelle Mosely

Keeps shutting down Shuts down numerous times and says color already in list,but there is no list. Can't take pictures of home to add color to your own walls

Dee Scalzo

What about hallways? Useless app. Why can't a picture of the area you'd like to paint be used to try different paint? It would be so much more useful. And why are there no hallways?

bet bai

Not work Could not open. But I like behr. So I will just get colors from store.

Bob Schmoe

I wanted to visualize room, like on TOH ad, didn't work on Galaxy But Dulux app works GREAT.

Cheryl McKay

Colors do not match The colors in the app do not match up to real world colors. This has cost us hours and now money wasted.

Anthony Nickano

What an absolutely crappy app It doesn't show anything. Wasted time for no reason

Daniel L Harris

This sucks You can't look up anything in the area of outside deckover or stains.

Rebecca Rose

Limited usage Can't use your own picture. It is hard to track down a specific color also.

Amanda Bradshaw

Simply didn't work. The colors wouldn't change according to what I picked.

Diane Rojas

Meh The older app used to let me adjust the color to a little Warmer or cooler, little darker or lighter till i got the perfect match. Now I have to hop around and go back and forth between screens. Not nearly as helpful

Molly Buckvich

Waste of space I thought I could upload a picture of my room to try colors. Why would it be useful to upload a color reverse match? The chances the light is right is slim and it probably wouldn't be exact. Uninstalling...

Marcy Hutchins

Helpful Painting rooms in your home is more than daunting, it's just down right scary. This app helped me find color coordination before I spent money on a project I wasn't going to love. I love this app and will is it in ALL my painting projects.

Nickey Hopper

Process is horrible! Not friendly I only love Behr paints! But this app does nothing for me!!!! I use "Dulux" then try to match with behr colours.....frustrating! ! Dulux let's me use my own pictures and is SUPER easy to use! Please fix/update your app!!!!

Mandy Feldgreber

Meh Difficult to navigated. Options for finding coordinating color far to limited.

Trish Nelson

No babies room Can't seem to find an app that will let me pick a babies room to paint. Seems like an obvious one to have.

Judy Anderson

Not liked Won't pick up my colors store in favorites. Can't see what it looks like in a casual kitchen

Carol Ford

Color transfer Able to take picture but unable to put colors I want onto it. Could not delete colors I did not want. So ?

TWENTY THREE

Beyond 5 STARS & must use this tool! I have been in the Automotive Paint Industry over 30 years. I have never used an app that totally excedes this pro's expectations. Note the map movement to pinpoint varied shades of color with choices in the ballpark EXCELLENT.

Grenada Hospital Assistance Fund

Could function better Great app, I really like how your able to apply colours to a room and save your work, however the back button closes the app rather than taking you a step back, which means you have to start the process all over.

Oskar zaczkowski

Worst app ever can't even take a photo of my own living room to see if the paint will match my wall.
