New app for WINDOWS Phone captures, matches colors anytime, anywhere
PITTSBURGH, Feb. 22, 2012 – New to WINDOWS(R) Phone, the COLORCLIX(R) mobile app allows users to select any color their phones can capture and match it to more than 1,200 OLYMPIC(R) Paint colors. Consumers also can find color inspiration by browsing the app’s collection of the most popular Olympic Paint colors and designer color collections.
Whatever your color inspiration, the ColorClix app for Windows Phone will help you easily identify and bring that shade to life for your next painting project. Windows Phone is the latest addition to the award-winning ColorClix suite of tools and is available for free download now from the Windows Phone Marketplace.
“In a café, a boardroom or the great outdoors – you never know when a flash of color will catch your eye,” said Jennifer Dodson, senior marketing manager, Olympic Paint and Stain. “The new ColorClix app for Windows Phone creates the opportunity for users to quickly capture color inspiration while on the go and then translate it into colors for their home. With its innovative features and seamless integration with other ColorClix tools, such as the paint-a-room ‘Visualizer,’ the app provides an unrivaled color experience for users, anytime and anywhere.”
In addition to finding a match for an inspired color, a ColorClix app user also can find designer-approved coordinating colors. Users also can tag and save colors for future painting projects, edit and access saved projects whenever design inspiration hits, and share projects with friends through email, Twitter and Facebook. Once users find their perfect colors, they can match them to an Olympic Paint product by finding the nearest Lowe's location.
The ColorClix app for Windows Phone leverages a number of features new to the Windows Phone 7.5, including multitasking, Live Tiles, mobile search integration and data syncing, which allows users to edit mobile-created projects online and vice versa.
