Ever wondered what your room would look like with a new coat of paint but without the cost and hassle of trying out paint samples?
Ezycolour Screentest is one of those rare apps that has the potential to save people a lot of time and money. Given that this is the “beta” version of the app, we can’t wait to see what the developers come up with as they continue to improve it.
The basic function of Screentest is to take a picture of a room and digitally change the color of the walls within the application.
Ezycolour Screentest is able to accomplish this through the use of masking tools, like those found in Photoshop. Sadly, Ezycolour Screentest doesn’t automatically color the walls. So the process of “masking” the walls of a room can become quite tedious. Without a detailed tutorial, selecting a wall to paint proved to be a chore in and of itself.
However, once you get a handle on how to use the tools of Ezycolour Screentest, the process of digital painting becomes easier and faster. And since it has over 2,500 colors and various effects, you should have no problem getting the walls to look exactly as you imagine.
At the same time, one of the main detracting issues to the appeal of Ezycolour Screentest occurred right from startup. Asian Paints requires that all users either create a login or link the app to a social media website (ie Facebook, Twitter, or Google Plus). Linking the app to one of these websites isn’t a big issue, but trying to create an account through Asian Paints proved to be impossible because an account confirmation email was never sent.
Appearance and Layout
The overall look and design of Ezycolour Screentest (beta version) is very appealing, sporting a clean look and an efficient layout.
The editing screen for “painting” walls has all of the essential tools right at your fingertips. However, the icons and labeling for the tools are a little unclear and vague. Although there is information about the tools displayed at the top of the screen, the instructions are slightly confusing.
One other problem that occurred with this beta version of Ezycolour Screentest was the stability of the application. Screentest would completely lock up when a picture was taken within the application. The only way to avoid this glitch was to take a picture with the Android camera app, and then upload it into Ezycolour Screentest.
Even though there are a few bugs and glitches to be worked out with this version, Ezycolour Screentest (beta) is still a wonderful app for those interested in renovating their homes.
Ezycolour Screentest has tons of potential and should definitely save people a lot of time and money. On top of that it’s free, making it all the more a valuable download.
Screentest Beta requires Android 4.0 and up. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
