What’s New

Version 3.1.1

A bit late to the party, but we are bringing a bottle, so to speak! Now introducing Dark Mode!

› About Dark Mode. It’s tied directly to your system settings, so whatever mode your iPhone or iPad is in, Lake will be in as well. Some words of wisdom: mindful coloring practice before bedtime can help you fall asleep faster. The process of coloring will allow you to slowly unwind after a long day and relax your body and mind. Try to see how this works for you!
› We are being joined by our 64th artist! Luna Valentine from Poland loves drawing cute magical people and finding whimsy in their everyday life. Beware, she will put a spell on you ...
› We are waving hello to Dark Mode and goodbye to our ‘Black Mode’! Yikes. If you were one of the unlucky ones who were experiencing their canvas going black (gulp), you should be on the safe side now.

In February, Lake will become fluent in Brazilian Portuguese, Pусский, Français, 日本語. Can. Not. Wait.

Thanks for your feedback: this way, you help us evolve and grow!

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.

It is a nice coloring app, but.....

Lake is a nice coloring app, probably on one of the better ones out there because you can actually color and shade each part of the drawing. The overall drawings for coloring are awesome and very unique, you won’t find these kinds of drawings anywhere else, which is another reason why lake is a top choice for me. The overall experience is nice and the final results almost look like a real painting, it’s really quite a bit different then any other painting program I’ve tried. Lake doesn’t overwhelm you with a bunch of tools and such, it gives you what you need to get great results and let’s you concentrate on your work. Selections are easy and the navigation is simple, I just wish there was a way to rotate the canvas while working, I often have to rotate my iPad to compensate for this. They are also are having a killer deal right now on subscriptions, I signed up for a year and I’m really glad I did, so far I’m loving it.

Needs improvement

I think this app needs improvement I think it is a really good app for like coloring and I am very very picky person about apps but it gives you all the supplies for coloring that you need to like make use of successful but they do they have to make like what I don’t like about it is that they have make you wait till like I could draw something they have to make you wait 25 minutes to wait to draw another thing and it’s very creative app but I wouldn’t recommend getting it because of like a lot of glitches and it’s gotten like whenever I try to zoom out it starts coloring and then it gets really annoying so yeah and that’s why every day of three star so yes if you don’t agree with me it’s OK but this is just my opinion everyone else has other opinions and I respect that but this is just my point of you and yes I certainly do love the app I am as I said in the beginning I am a very picky person about apps and I also love how creative this app is so without other to say everything’s a three star hopefully it gets better with the app and I can read a five star sooner or if not but yes thank you for letting me respond to your app and yes hopefully you respond and fix or you don’t have to fix for me but it’s OK

Developer Response ,

Hi, thanks for your feedback. Happy you like coloring with Lake but not sure what you meant with the 25 minutes of wait time to color the next image. You can color right away in Lake. Perhaps you encountered that in another coloring app? Can you please reach out to so that we can determine if the zooming issue is from Lake or also from using it in another coloring app. We know sometimes a mix up can happen :) We'll definitely consider your suggestions if it turns out the issue is from our app. Hope to hear from you soon via email. Thank you and all the best.
