Meet Colorist! This interactive coloring app has been developed by Nika Entertainment with a mission to help kids with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) and their tutors around the world. It was born after years of extensive research, collaboration with Centers for Autism Treatment, professional scientists and pediatricians around the world. After testing numerous cognitive behavioural therapy approaches and findings, we have come up with a coloring book that would be not only fun, but also a powerful therapy instrument.

Functionally colorist is a coloring app that features thousands of arts updated daily and a “live image” experience when the image comes to life and starts to bloom in motion. So how does it help kids and tutors? First of all, it helps kids quickly concentrate and calm down before the lesson - in a comfortable playful atmosphere.

Here are just a few of the other effects therapists and tutors of the kids with ASD can achieve with the coloring app:

Improving the persistence
Enhancement of focusing and concentration
Developing fine motor skills
Revealing the artistic potential
Reducing aggression & irritability

We have already helped 50.000 of kids, and after getting hundreds of thankful emails from tutors and pediatricians, decided to make this app FREE - to help everyone in need.

Another important function of this coloring book is its coughing and meditative effect. Frequent usage of color games helps focus on the present and achieve mindfulness. There is a special mandala coloring set that works best for meditation. According to our research, coloring a symmetrical pattern helps your brain enter a state it experiences during meditation.


- Start painting OFFLINE! No Internet? No problem! Our pages are available offline so it will not interrupt your creativity.

- Pictures that go LIVE! Discover the mind-blowing effect available ONLY in Colorist! No other drawing apps allow that! Forget about old-fashioned, boring static images. With Colorist, your drawings will come to life (like in the movies!) Imagine the tree leaves moving with the wind, a woman’s hair flipping, and birds flying in the drawing YOU make!

- New pages added DAILY! For the truest coloring games fans, we update our library on a daily basis. We now have thousands of arts created by the professional illustrators. Pick the category you like - nature, food, fantasy, celebs, characters, mandalas, and more!

- Challenge yourself with a wide array of TOOLS AND PALETTES! Colorist is the perfect coloring book for adults who like to reach new heights and set their bar high. It supplies you with numerous color shades and textures. Wood, glass, fabric - experience any artistic passion you might have!

- Color MANDALAS to keep your creative spirit busy! According to Harvard’s Dr. Herbert Benson, coloring mandalas helps to acquire relaxation due to the repetitive movement and intense concentration. While coloring the symmetrical form of mandalas in the relaxing games, your brain enters a state similar to the one you reach while meditating. With the help of Colorist’s coloring book, you can paint mandalas any time to calm your inner chaos and organize thoughts.

Just Downloaded, Actually FREE (!), Amazing Selection

I just downloaded this app and looked through the sections of various options, colored a Mandala (I love the patterns), downloaded a few for when I find myself offline, and so far I am very impressed. I did not donate right off the bat since I wanted to check it out first, although based on what I’ve seen so far, I fully expect to provide the developers with a donation after I have played around a little more. Thank you for creating this app and making it available to all. :)

Disappointed - No Response

When I read the reviews, someone complained about there being no option to try the 3 days for free. The owners said that there was an option to click on. I downloaded the app and saw the 3 day free trial. What I didn’t see - was the “small print” to click on so I wouldn’t be charged. I pressed CONTINUE - expecting to have another window open with the option for the 3 day free trial. About 10 minutes after I opened the Colorist app I realized that I didn’t want it. I promptly contacted the owners and asked them to please cancel it. I haven’t gotten a response but I thought it was handled until I saw the charge to my account this morning. I emailed Apple this morning but haven’t heard from them.
Can you please CANCEL it and REFUND the charge? I haven’t used it since and will delete it.
Thank you for your help.
P.s. Have you noticed that they don’t respond to the reviews that request a refund? Since it was my mistake I would be willing to pay a token amount for the few days I’ve had it.

Developer Response ,

Hi there! Sorry that this happened to you. In order to use the app for free, you needed to close the welcome screen by clickin on a cross at the top on the left, not "Continue". This can be fixed now and you can cancel subscription in your iTunes account. Also, we do reply to refund requests but these need to be addressed to iTunes as well since iTunes processes refunds not us.

Great for everyone

This app is easy to use and has a lot of beautiful pictures to color. There are options for kids, teens and adults! I’m so happy with the amount of people coloring pages bc I love coloring people! I also love that there are cartoon characters for kids to color and I also love to color them. I definitely recommend this app to anyone who loves to color!
