    Paint Track Apps?

    I am working on it. Rewriting an app that took years to write in the first time takes time (especially changing over programming paradigms). Both of us have full time jobs so this is a labor of love. I'm wondering about releasing a version with a small subset of features to start. It would have all the paints, backup, sets, but maybe not every other nicety. Thoughts?

    New update went out this weekend with those missing Reaper primers and paints added. It also addresses a number of crashes we were seeing. As always, let us know if anything comes up.

    That's probably the biggest feedback we get. Eventually we'll have a solution for that, at least to shut off the sub-types if you don't use them. Could easily add a user-disabled option as well for individual paints. You'd be surprised how often we get asked to add reeeally old paints. We support Citadel current and previous gen and people often email with "I have this paint from 1995 that's still good...why isn't it in the app?". Sadly, we can't get info for all those ancient ones.

    If you have specific ones that are not scanning (other than for being smudged), please email me with the pictures of the front and back and I can verify our data in the database. jeff at courageousoctopus.com

    Ah, you have found a bit of a bug apparently. Actually, I think what is happening is the initial sort is just the order they were added to the DB, then when you sort by SKU is gets messed up because a bunch of the Reaper paints are missing the starting 0. We'll fix both of those in the next update.

    Haha, the original plan was to make an app would prevent this, so hopefully it accomplished this for you going forward.

    Currently we don't have a way to do that across Google accounts. If you want to log in on her phone with your account you could export/import via Google Drive (but this will wipe all data on the phone). We hope to have one eventually. Can you please email me at jeff at courageousoctopus.com with pictures of the front and back of each bottle (barcode) and a picture some paint samples on a white sheet? Been trying to track those down for months! Also, I'll probably add zero to the other one so they're all the same. Actually, Purple Wash and Ginger Cookie have the same barcode! Ginger Cookie is the newer one so it wins out. We have intermittently added Primers. Send me the front and back photos (including barcode) to the above email address and we'll get it in the next update.

    If you have auto-update enabled on the Google Play store it should just download automatically next time it's plugged in and in wifi. Or you can go to Google Play app and force it to do so.

    Hah, Pezler leaked the update ;). Yes, v18 is out now! New paint as always, but more importantly two big bug fixes. Color Matching is waaaaay better now that we're using CieDe2000 color distances. It's also much faster and snappier in Color Tools. The color matching issues were probably the #1 complaint about the app previously. Hopefully this addresses the issue. I'll probably write a blog post later about it when I have a chance. Secondly, if you have a paint set that includes the same paint more than once, it'll remember the order correctly. Apparently this was a more common use case than we thought.

    That's exactly what I did now. New update is out now. Got 3 of the 6 ReaperCon paints, the Reaper Holiday pack, and tons more (including ALL Freakflex). Let us know if anything else comes up. Also, major kudos to Ludo. He keeps helping us out getting the weird color samples! Thanks!

    Yup, that's it exactly.

    I'm not seeing that on their website. What set is it from?

    We're limited in what we can do on our end, unfortunately. We're using the ZXing library (same as the Barcode Scanner app in Google Play). Seems to come down a lot to lighting and how well your barcodes are printed. You are a gentleman and a scholar!

    Look for these ones from the most recent ReaperCon: 09681 Prom Night Pink 09682 Stark Naked HD 09683 Morning After Blues Bones 09684 Ghostly Moss 09685 Copreal Shadow 09686 Gothic Crimson

    Good thread, though it is missing the paints in question.

    Anybody pick up the ReaperCon set set and want to pm/email me the barcodes? jeff at courageousoctopus.com We'll try to get them in the next update including the new Reaper Holiday set. EDIT: I had them flipped. We have the holiday ones. We need the Reapercon ones. EDIT2: Found the barcodes. Now looking for the actual colors.

    I emailed about Freak Flex. Never heard back. You and me both. I emailed them to get permission to put them in the app and they did not reply.

    Once Reaper updates their documentation we can easily add it! We love working with Reaper because they're so good about it.

    It's in your App folder which is not user-accessible. It's just a file with a whole bunch of database IDs so it wouldn't be very useful. Yes, they are sorted by Hue if you select Color from the sorting options. Remember that Hue is only one factor, so if you have significant S or V then it can look black or grey.

    I'm not familiar with this. Can you clarify what that is?

    Paint Track Apps?

    There definitely is Google Drive support on iOS devices but yes, you'd need your Google account. We have swiping on the list as a request but it's pretty tricky. It's context specific - what mode are you in (just futzing in the library or trying to pick a paint for a set or what), what were the sort orders in the last window, what filters are on, etc. Maybe if you guys explained the use case to us it would be clearer? How would you personally use the swiping?

    Currently, no.

    Right now we only support colors, but we could think of another solution for the additives. We've had plenty of feedback people want that. Strange, I'm finding the same issue. According to Dakkadakka's Paint Range Compatibility Chart, the closest of the new Citadel range should be Rhinox hide. So right now the way color matching works is we look at the HSV values and we try to find the closest Hue match (if you're looking for matches, for instance). If there's a tie we fall back to Saturation, then Value. This works well in like 75% of the cases. However, sometimes you get colors that are close in hue but way off in S or V so they appear brown or grey or something even though they are the right hue which makes the results wonky. Obviously our current solution is too naive. Bottom line is it's a known issue and I'm about 50% through fixing it to make it more accurate. This is coming in a near-future release (probably the next update or maybe the one after), so stay tuned! Currently the main priority is making subsets better for reordering paints and adding subset notes. As for Citadel barcode scanning, we support the current and last generation back.

    There are three paints that were re-released with different SKUs and different barcodes. At the moment we don't have a good solution for that so we've just left both in. We actually didn't realize those dupes were there until after the initial app release. Also, the mythical Purple Wash DOES exist, but it has the same code and barcode as the Pumpkin Orange paint from Reaper. So we put Purple Wash in without its barcode for now.
