One of the best coloring apps out there!!!

I am not joking when I say how good Lake is! Sure it has a one tiny glitch but I love it! So you might be wondering what is this glitch? Well, let me tell you, so in this app you get a digital coloring journal. With that journal you choose how your feeling by an emoji and then you choose the word representing on how your feeling, it creates a special color palette. This is great! If only I could use it to color the picture I choose! For me when I try to use the color and I start coloring it switches back to the last color I was using in another coloring page. Nothing I do will fix it. But it doesn’t bug me to much since I don’t like to use the journal as much but if other people have this glitch it could really annoy them. But overall this is amazing I love how you can blend colors and how there is so many colors to choose from! If I could get the Premium version I would, but I can’t at the time! Thank you for this amazing app and keep it up! Have a good day or night! Also whoever is reading this if you like to color get this APP! P.S. I would write so much more but I don’t want to waste peoples time.

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.
