ColorSmart by BEHR® Mobile app review



Have you ever painted a room in your house with a shade you think will be perfect only to find it isn't at all what you wanted? The ColorSmart by BEHR® Mobile app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone gives you a way to see the results before you actually do the painting. This app has been designed to help you find that perfect color for your room so it's right from the start and you won't find yourself having to re-do it.

Get it Right the First Time

With the ColorSmart by BEHR® Mobile app you’ll be able to get your color choice right from the start. All you have to do is scroll through the images of different rooms in the gallery and select the one closest to your style. Next you will be able to paint the trim, walls, and ceiling so you can get the full finished effect before you take the plunge. This is a great way to come up with some exciting and unique color combinations or techniques that you may not have thought of otherwise. Once you come up with a look you like you can then save the room image, colors, paint quantity calculations, palettes, and even store locations right on your device.

The app has just recently been improved upon with a brand-new look and new features. It currently has 3.5 out of five stars from users so it looks like people would still like to see some refinements.

Ensure You Get a Color Match

Another cool feature in the ColorSmart by BEHR® Mobile app is the ability to match up a color that you find in everyday life with a BEHR color. This is done by taking a photo of the image, fabric swatch, or item that you wish to color match. The app then goes through the 2,500 colors in the BEHR library to find a match. Any color, palette, or room that you virtually paint can be shared with family and friends so that you can get their input as well.

Although the app offers some handy user tools it seems that there are some glitches, bugs, and minor issues that affect its user-friendliness. The most recent update has definitely taken aim at some of these problems and tried to offer some solutions but it looks like customers would still like to see more/better tools added.

Final Words

The ColorSmart by BEHR® Mobile app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone is meant to help people find those perfect shades to paint their rooms but I feel like this one could still offer more to customers and it isn’t quite all the way there.
