Absolutely Brilliant

Thank you so much to the amazing team behind this app, i had a small issue after the update & they fixed it immediately! I have had it for months & use it daily. I have completed whole sets by my favourite artists (Alina Drozdova is probably my all time fave). I love how artists come back with holiday themed art pieces to contribute to the theme sets. This app is the best colouring app I have tried, which is why I decided to pay for the subscription, & it has been worth every penny! If you love to colour daily to unwind & relax (I have a heart condition & colouring is very soothing for me) then I would say this is a smart purchase for you! I have not bought a physical colouring book in months since subscribing to Lake, & I was previously spending about $20 a month on high quality adult colouring books, so this is actually a better alternative for me. And as someone who is only in my 20s, the art styles available in the Lake app are preferable to me compared to your average boring colouring book.

Thanks so much again to the developers & artists who made this app! I truly love it.

wishing for more

i ended up trying lake because i liked the focus on independent artists and the emphasis on supporting them, not taking advantage of them for profit. additionally, i’ve found that it has the most illustrations/artists that fit my personal style preference. that said, i can’t help but feel that it falls short in a few major ways. it absolutely needs a couple more coloring tools - why there is no crayon/colored pencil type option is beyond me. i find myself using competing apps like Pigment because i just can’t enjoy the limited brush styles offered by Lake - three brushes, limited size adjustment, and no adjustment of opacity? just feels like a let down for the cost of a subscription coloring app. as for the color palette - although the idea of the rainy, cloudy, and sunny palettes is cute and is a very nice way to explore colors, i do long for an option that allows finer tuning, and the creation of custom palettes or the saving of colors beyond the 6-8 colors in the history panel. last, one little annoyance i always find myself frustrated with is the very limited recall of the undo option, especially when there’s no tap-to-undo on ipad and i constantly find myself accidentally placing small marks on the canvas that end up requiring erasing the entire section. anyways, in short - nice illustrations, great artists, cute interface - just lacking quite a bit in terms of real coloring tools.
