Coloring is a great way to pass time and reduce stress & anxiety. Just 10 minutes of coloring can provide the same benefits as meditation, and help you practice mindfulness, live in the moment, enhance concentration, and encourage your creativity.
Take a break and relax with Pigment, the award-winning coloring app. We have thousands of coloring pages and access to exclusive content from Disney and The Jim Henson Company. Simply "tap and fill," or immerse yourself in a unique coloring experience that lets you color as you would on paper, with 29 different pencils, markers, and brushes. For advanced colorists, Freehand, Automatic, and Advanced modes provide even greater control.
Get creative with the oil, watercolor and pastel tools, and use blur and blend brushes for even more interesting results! Choose from an unlimited number of colors using the color wheel and innovative shade control slider. You can also create and save your own custom color palettes or choose from the curated ones provided.
Import your own images, or choose from the largest collection of illustrations and grayscale images including flowers, mermaids, people, animals, landscapes, anime, mandalas, and so much more! Even start with a blank page and use Pigment as a sketchbook.
Easily share your creations with friends and family via social media, email, SMS, and more — and even print them for framing!

Ratings and Reviews
Love this app!
This is a great app for anyone old or young! I think this is one of the best apps I've found. I like that you can actually color instead of just point and click. You can choose to do automatic where you don't have to worry about going outside lines. This is great for when you are in the car or you can do free hand and it's just like coloring on paper. There is a cost if you want to have access to all the colors and types of ink/styles, but I think it is worth it. It gives me the satisfaction of coloring/relaxing yet lets me save a ton of money on all the gel pens and colored pencils I go through. It's also mu.) better on my eyes because you can enlarge and turn to whatever angle you want. I had gotten so that I needed to wear reading glasses because some of these coloring books have such small detail. Lastly the best part is that I can upload pics from my favorite coloring books and do them over and over again. Plus if I make a mistake or choose a color that I don't care for I can just erase. If you like to color as much as I do, You have got to get this app. Especially if you have the IPad Pro and pencil... it's a dream. The only thing I wish were different would be the glitter option. I love to use glitter pens IRL so I wish this. Would sparkle and stand out more, but I still like to use it. Hope this helps anyone considering paying for this app.
Best Coloring App
No contest, hands down, the best coloring app out there if you want a real coloring book experience without hauling your coloring books and tools around with you. I’ve tried a bunch. Tap and color isn’t coloring - for me, anyway. It’s cool for my 3 year old granddaughter so it’s nice to have that option, but Pigment really makes use of the apple pencil, it feel like coloring. I debated for months whether to purchase this app for the year. I went through the 7 stages and was hung up on anger for quite some time. The free version actually does give you a lot to do - all you need really if you are just using it for stress relief or to pass timed. I LOVE being able to import my granddaughters coloring book pages. That way, we can take the best of them with us! You are limited to the number of images you can import with the free version so that finally pushed me over the edge. I understand those who think this is a high cost app - I’d never pay 10/mo. But 5? I talked myself into it. Honestly, for how much you get with the premium, I don't regret paying. I’ve paid much more for much less. I use this app every day and now I can use any coloring page I want, use any coloring medium, import to my heart’s content and even create my own color palettes. Super in my book - both free and premium.
Incredible and worth every penny!
This app gets my first review out of the hundreds I have downloaded over the past 10 years. I recently upgraded my iPad Air 2 to the new Pro 10.5 and after some easy convincing to myself, purchased the Apple Pencil, (After not having success with Wacom and Adonit pens). Please note that I sampled the majority of coloring books in the App Store and none come close to Pigment. I am not an artist by a long shot and lack the practice and skill to draw/sketch freehand. I was intimidated at first being new to coloring apps but quickly caught on to the well designed interface, different brushes/fills/colors and basic controls. On my 2nd day, I was creating the most amazing drawings and already posting to their gallery. I’m not sure the experience on older IPad models and different stylus but my current setup is near flawless, has no lag and is precise. I am in love with this app and not only is it satisfying to bring a drawing to life, but also provides me with a therapeutic comfort at the end of the day.
For those complaining about the price, it’s worth packing a lunch to work a few times a month, (or whatever method you chose), to offset the cost. That’s what I’m doing! I’m so happy with this app and know that it will offer me a sense of satisfaction for a long time to come.
