I love Lake

Lake is just the most amazing app. The in-app purchases are not persistent and the app is still great without it. This is one of my favourite apps.
You get two or three drawings a day and honestly that is more than enough. They are beautifully detailed and the smart borders can be turned on or off. This means that when I want to relax and chill out I can turn off the smart borders and when I want to make a beautiful drawing quickly. The best of both worlds!
If you are looking for a high quality, relaxing app then Lake is the one for you - it’s beautiful.
I have also got some favourites artists that I follow and I really enjoy it. The only complaint is that I would love to do a plain canvas but I don’t have the upgrade. Apart from that, it is amazing.
Thank you Lake!

This is THE one…

This was recommended to me as I am an Apple Pencil user and immediately I downloaded because I’ve been looking and searching for digital adult colouring books (I’m 18). I’ve tried many other apps before but deleted before the end of the day because these apps failed to replicate the motion of colouring and typically just used the “fill motion” if you get what I mean. I wasn’t a fan of this, and also the fact that using these apps without the subscription was terrible as there were barely any options to choose from. THIS, however…I love this app and am even considering purchasing the subscription because I love it that much. You’re given quite a few free drawings and one new one each day (bearing in mind I’ve had this app a few days and only tend to colour one image a day) and the colour selection is great. I’ve found a way to layer colours using the tapered brush and hold on top to select that as a colour to add some that are unavailable if you do not pay! I also love the journal feature that allows you to make daily colouring entries with FREE images. So so so much love for this app I’ve found that colouring in this app is a great for calming me down and making me feel relaxed. I only with there were a few more free images to choose from, hence the 4/5 but aside from that this app is absolutely amazing and I’m so glad it was recommended to me on my App Store! I tried to keep this review short haha guess not but you will not regret downloading this app!

Thank you for your kind review! We are happy to hear about how much you enjoy Lake. We are also glad you consider subscribing. Getting a subscription unlocks all the drawings in the app (1,000+) - artist and collection packs, and the color wheel gets upgraded with more colors. On top of it, you directly support the artists in Lake with every purchase. That means that a part of every purchase in Lake goes directly to the artists. Paid content also enables us to continue developing the app and provide new content on the regular.
Have a wonderful day!
