Digital Car Paint
allows car owners to customize a paint scheme for their vehicles on their iPad or iPhone. The app offers a choice of over 200 vehicles dating back to the 1930s, including trucks, motorcycles and airplanes, and paint colours from Dupont.
The app was developed as a result of Bestapp Digital president Al Beix searching for a new look for his car, a ’33 Ford Hot Rod, he says he “plans to build.” It didn’t take Beix long to discover that there was nothing on the market that would let car owners digitally paint a vehicle before actually painting it.
“When I realized this, it was immediately clear to me that this is a real need that needs a real solution,” he said. “As a result, we set about figuring out how to make this happen, and today, some eight months later, we are releasing the initial program.”
Digital Car Paint is available as a free download on the Apple App store
. While the download gives users unrestricted access to design tools and colours available, Beix adds only the “paid version” will allow the purchaser to save their work for e-mailing or posting it online. Buying the app will also make available the colour names and codes for the “paint” used in the digital customization.
A “test drive” of Digital Car Paint can be viewed on YouTube
, where a demo of the product creates a two-tone paint job in less than one minute.
