PLEASE READ THIS CREATORS(people get this app)

I really love this up so much! It doesn’t overwhelm me with the fancy coloring options other coloring apps have and the pictures are simple but yet amazing! (You need to get it if you haven’t). My only problem is can you offer more stuff to the people who can’t get the subscription? (Btw if you are a person who is reading this right now please get this app! Really amazing). But like how I was saying, a lot of the pictures have the subscription which right now I can’t get. If you could please make it where you can watch adds to get it? And for the subscription thing can you make it a little cheaper? (I understand if you can’t). One last suggestion. Is there a way you can add a music feature where u can listen to music while coloring? Like rain music, ocean sounds, etc. I understand for most people they don’t like listening to music while coloring but for the people who do could you please add it? Again, I understand if you can’t. Overall really great app and I would use this app everyday if I wasn’t busy. If you are a parent reading this, GET THIS APP FOR YOU OR FOR YOUR CHILD! Nothing inappropriate that I have seen and it’s really fun to use. Bye and please answer back creators if you can.

One of the best coloring apps out there!!!

I am not joking when I say how good Lake is! Sure it has a one tiny glitch but I love it! So you might be wondering what is this glitch? Well, let me tell you, so in this app you get a digital coloring journal. With that journal you choose how your feeling by an emoji and then you choose the word representing on how your feeling, it creates a special color palette. This is great! If only I could use it to color the picture I choose! For me when I try to use the color and I start coloring it switches back to the last color I was using in another coloring page. Nothing I do will fix it. But it doesn’t bug me to much since I don’t like to use the journal as much but if other people have this glitch it could really annoy them. But overall this is amazing I love how you can blend colors and how there is so many colors to choose from! If I could get the Premium version I would, but I can’t at the time! Thank you for this amazing app and keep it up! Have a good day or night! Also whoever is reading this if you like to color get this APP! P.S. I would write so much more but I don’t want to waste peoples time.
