Atlas SYR is very easy to use. Naturally they are pushing their own products so you can only see the color selection that they offer but you can get an idea of color that you might want to use if you are looking for a similar color.
Also it is important to note that this product ONLY works on an iPad.
Nice feature offered with this software is it even tells you where to stand to get the best shot of your entire roof.
Overall I would say that this is a great tool for a client to use to do their own homework on how to improve the value of their home. I don’t think this is a great tool for Roofing companies or Estimators to use.
