  • Save your $$$

    You can do just as well with the brochures at the paint stores. I was expecting much more.
  • I like it

    By Chalk Girl
    Lost my actual magazine and didn't want to spend the extra fortune on shipping a new one so I got the app... Only complaint is it keeps freezing and I have to shut down my iPad completely.... Fix that it and it does what I expected!
  • Don't bother

    By Mdrmcg
    Wish I would've read the reviews. Complete waste of money. Not helpful at all!!!!
  • Not much content

    By Marshgar
    The color river is useful and attractive. A nice feature, as is the color picker that is based on it. Yet for the price, I cannot say that the app has much in the way of content. I would expect HB to add sample rooms where you can see the colors on the walls, etc. Other apps offer this so it is possible.
  • Love the App

    By MishyLane13
    I have tried many of these apps and I adore this one. It's really helpful in helping you pick out a color. I have used it to pick out several colors and they always come out stunning. Wish they had an update, I know every color by heart!
  • not worth it

    By bryantcafe
    Overpriced with very few features. There is practically nothing you can do with it aside look at their favorite colors.
  • Dreadful

    By andrewingeneva
    Unbelievable waste of money. Do not buy it in a fit if optimism, or you will e back here tomorrow posting your own regrets...
  • Disappointing

    By Sronsin
    I agree with all the poor rating reviews and would like my money back. A pile of color chips is actually more useful. An ap like this has SO much potential but this one does next to nothing. What a disappointment.
  • Invaluable

    This app is our bible for choosing paint colors for our new apartment. It's incredibly easy to use and perfect for mixing and matching different colors and different brands of paint. Really smartly designed and amazingly useful.
  • Very useful

    By Dinguy89
    I really found this app useful in learning a way to think About paint colors, how they work together and how to put different colors together. Very beautiful interface and even if I don't find the exact color I am going to use, it gives you tons of great ideas.
