Ben Color Capture Finds The Perfect Colour Match With iPhone Pics

iPhone only: How do you know if the colour you want so much for your kitchen renovation is sea foam green or surf green? Let the Ben Color Capture App for iPhone help you figure it out.

Inspiration strikes at the strangest times. You'll search for the perfect paint colour for weeks, only to stumble across it splashed on the side of a city bus advertisement as you're heading to lunch. Whip out your iPhone, snap a pic, then fire up the Ben app. Open up the picture you just took, tap anywhere on the image that displays the colour you like, and the app will name the closest match available in a Benjamin Moore paint colour. Alternatively, you can use a picture you've already got stored in your camera roll.

A store locator feature lets you know the nearest place that stocks Benjamin Moore paint, so you can run right over and grab some. Once you've settled on a paint colour you like, the app also clues you in on what other colours will compliment your selection and keep you from making eye-burning choices like purple walls with fuchsia trim.

If you're planning on doing some repainting, there's really no reason not to grab this handy and free little app.
