Excellent app with excellent diversity

Okay I usually don’t write reviews but this app is great. First of all, it’s the first one I found where you actually make the motions of painting instead of just tap to fill and if there are any bugs I haven’t noticed them. Second of all, I like how you can use coins to get the premium stuff at the end of a pack, and how a good 70% of the app is usable without it. I’ve seen so many where a subscription is absolutely necessary to get anything out of an app. Last but not least, DIVERSITY!!! Seriously, this is the first app I’ve seen to feature so many women of color. Usually you get mainly white women with the occasional black woman, but there are all races featured in this app. In fact most of the women ive seen aren’t white, or at least clearly white. I’ve even seen a few men, which you usually don’t see in these kinds of apps. I really appreciate that this app displays the beauty of all colors instead of just white people, because too many of these kinds of apps don’t. The only improvement I could think of would be an option to choose different pallets, especially for the landscapes. Like there’s one where it’s a mountain range primarily in shades of pink, and as pretty as it is I’d like so see it in blues or greens, but that’s honestly just nitpicking.

All in all, fantastic app, completely recommend!

Great! ❤️

This game is very calming, The premium doesn’t have ridiculous features, so you don’t HAVE to buy it for the game to work and everything works well. The controls are easy to figure out, and it’s nice how you actually get to color it in, instead of like in other apps where you just tap and the whole section is colored. Basically for me this game is incredible and worth it. Some other reviews say there are too many ads. I don’t understand this because it is a free game so of course there are gonna be some ads. And also, even if it feels like they are excessive ads, that’s not the case for every picture. Also, even if that were true, the game balances out that anyway. I like how the pictures that would normally just be premium you can actually buy with the in game coins. I love how there are so many different galleries to choose from and the pictures are very well chosen. Another thing that I like is how they make the pictures look like real life when you finish coloring them, instead of cartoons. The only thing I would like is maybe a little percentage thing around each of the colors like the circle for the total percentage done. I saw that suggestion in another comment, and I think it’s a good idea.

Hey! We appreciate your feedback a lot :). Thank you for your kind words and understandinhttps://www.facebook.com/groups/aprilcoloringfansg of some of the features and means to develop the app. We are truly happy that you've found some time to send this review and express your thoughts about it. We are doing our best to move on to make the app better, and we are regularly adding new pictures and features.

We will check if adding a "percentage meter" around colors. It's a nice idea, although we have to verify if it would be possible to implement it.

Update to five stars

Update to my below review: first, thank you to the developer for responding so fast. I did as suggested and removed the app and reinstalled it. Hallelujah! It works like it did originally and I’m once again totally addicted. This is the best coloring app out there! I love the feeling of actually coloring and I can color for HOURS. I do still want more pictures to come out each week, but I can be patient 😉

When I first started on this app I became addicted! I couldn’t stop coloring. I got through every available picture and even started re-coloring. BUT... the app has been super laggy, not responding after several attempts on one section, and sometimes it will randomly jump to another section. When I try to move it back, it doesn’t respond. Also, new galleries only come out once a week and the number of new pictures varies. This week only one gallery is released (10 pictures). For the subscription price, all of these issues makes it not worth it. Oh and I do use the Apple Pencil and still have these issues.
