Sherwin Williams iPhone ColorSnap App

sept09 023Sherwin Williams ColorSnap App for the iPhone allows you to take a photo of an item or object on the job and move your finger around that photo to find a color from the Sherwin Williams Color Pallet that matches. You can use existing photos from your photo Library too.

I snap a photo of the unfinished brickmold to get my primer base coat color to apply to the white metal overhead door.

SW 7508 Tavern Taupe is darn close.
