App Reviews

  • Love This App!

    By Luke_Holton
    I love using this app for editing my pictures because it allows me to take full advantage of the color chooser. It helps me in creativity in choosing projects as well. I wish though that there was an iPad version of this app because it would allow me to do so much more with what Pantone has to offer.
  • What happened?

    By LittleRae
    I paid $10 for the full app when I started graphic design classes and now I have to pay for a sub? Ugh... the UI design is better though... *edit* I was told by the developer I could restore my purchase and it would be fine. 🎉 thank goodness because it’s so much easier than carrying the deck around with me!
  • App keeps crashing when trying to read articles

    By gossjoh1
    Hello. Love the app but it crashes every time I try to read the articles. I have updated and restarted phone and it’s a bug in the app. Please fix! Thank you.
  • Not worth the money

    By xSarahhSmiles
    I work with hair, so I use Pantone to help clients figure out the exact shade they want in their hair. That being said, this app is slightly difficult to use, and confusing. I’m also not sure why there’s even a price to begin with, this app doesn’t do anything special so why a cost??? The only thing truly worth it is the aesthetic for the fact that it’s Pantone. Download pocket palette instead, save yourself the time, effort and coin.
  • Pretty cool!

    By jonkern
    I'm not positive how dead on the colors are in the images, but I find this EXTREMELY helpful. I know there are multiple, the camera & the app. Hard to pinpoint which is the variable that I can manipulate to make most accurate image of color. But OVERALL....GENIUS!
  • Liiiiiiit 🔥🔥🔥

    By odots
    If you're a designer or an artist of any kind this will make your life so much easier when it comes to creating color schemes. 7/7
  • Language Option

    By iigorpnhr
    Hello there. I'm Brazilian and it'd be great to have the option to choose the app language from Portuguese to English back again, which I prefer. Just saying. :)
  • How is this worth $5 a month?

    By unccguy75
    The app is extremely difficult to navigate, lots of hidden navigation and features. I paid for the subscription so that I could connect my adobe account, etc, and I couldn't get it to work. I want to like this but just can't.
  • Ok

    By .zebra.
    Not allowing me to index my photos after I downloaded them all. I try to press continue in the settings but it’s not taking me anywhere. I only got this app was to get a palette from photos I already took.
  • This is the first app I have felt compelled to mark down its rating.

    By An artist that wasted time
    Complete waste of your time. If you're a designer, just move right on passed this. It has a lot of potential, but what you get from the immediate download is an awful UI. The best way to illustrate this app is a color wheel that has been placed in a shredder, shaken up, and then displayed.
