    "I used this app when I did some redecorating in my home. I wanted to use the part of "how will it fit in your room". That is the best part of the app. When you spend $1000's of dollars on sofas one has to be sure the will look good and "fit". Great concept. I would of wasted time and money as the ones I had my heart set on did not look good in my room. Thank goodness I looked first. So I used the app again to look for some ideas instead and found a great sectional that was even better. "

    "The app is expensive but if you get it, you will get your moneys worth out of it. Was able to find cheap items and pre plan my design with great efficiency. Would only recommend for those who do interior design for a living or one who is moving but the price takes it out of the need range for someone who is just doing a little redecorating."

    "I needed to buy some things for my home so I downloaded this app to try and get some inspiration or ideas. I looked around at what kind of things they sold or even what I could build."

    "In theory this is a great app but it also depends on how the camera captures the color. My Android phone doesn't capture the true color so the colors don't match. If the camera manufacturer could work with Benjamin Moore to make this work as it should, this would be a fantastic app."

    "One of the toughest things for me to do when undertaking a new DIY project at home is to try and match old paint. The ColorSmart app will not only easily match my existing colors, but also help me to manage my projects as well. The app design is well thought out and easy to use making it a great help for all my DIY projects."
