Open this Apple Design Award winner and start coloring. In moments, all your stresses just kinda wash away, right? That’s the nice side effect of this tremendous coloring app. It’s packed with creativity-enhancing tools—spray paint, customized color palettes, and a huge assortment of intuitive features. Our favorite pictures switch from coloring between the lines to going rogue.

Always evolving, never gets old!

I love this app, for so many reasons. It is very user friendly, and easy to figure out. The artwork is amazing! It’s all so different, and I think that makes it very well rounded. There’s something for everyone, and they’re constantly adding new artists, which keeps you from running out of things to color. I’ve used both the paid version, and the free version, both are great. I do enjoy getting a bigger variety of colors and access to MORE artwork in the paid version, but this is not at app that loses its appeal if you don’t pay for it. And both versions are gloriously ad free! The creators are awesome if you ever need to contact them for support, but also just in encouraging you to share your creations on social media, and I’ve even had a few of the artists reach out and leave comments as well that they liked my pictures, etc. Its just a really well made app that runs smoothly, and has become an essential part of my “unwind routine”.

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.
