  • Great! I love it! ❤️ May 21, 2020

    By littlefox_13
    I love this game so much! 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 is such a great one that it 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. This game is amazing! I love it. 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. That’s really just me trying to come up with something that is not perfect about this game! 🤩I know this review was really long.... 😅but I couldn’t help it. Thanks!

    So relaxing. Definitely worth buying a stylus for. I was hesitant at first about buying a stylus but it really helps my carpal tunnel and is just really satisfying to watch. It helps my anxiety and depression too; I color at least 3 photos a day. It's also worth buying the premium subscription to not only support the devs, but you get no ads along with unlimited pictures to color. I love this app and tell all my friends about it. If you're hesitant about downloading it, try it!

    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!

    Nice relaxing coloring game. The screen freezes for a few seconds when you need to move on once in a while, but then it's fine.. The only thing I don't care for is that I'm pretty sure I'm getting spam text messages because of this game. **Update 5/28/21** The spam messages seemed to have stopped, so at this point I can't confirm that it actually came from this game. Play on and enjoy 😎

    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.

    So when you see that this is the app of the day you think it’s great and then read reviews most people really like it but that’s because they have the premium and I’m a kid and I don’t have a lot of money and my parents don’t pay for stuff I want so when I’m going to relax I’m not allowed to even do the daily picture!!! There’s probably even more stuff because I just got it but let me tell you the good stuff So I’ve never seen a color by number pile this so normally you just tap and that color cel is full but no this time when you tap the color cel you have a paintbrush and your getting the feeling that your actually painting. And that’s pretty much everything good to say but back to the bad stuff So when your coloring when you leave the app and come back let’s say someone calls you and you answer them when you come back you have to watch a whole bunch of ads for it to save your progress. Well since I just got it I don’t know all the things but thanks for reading this long review and I really want the developer to respond and can you put it do that you can see your finished work with the unfinished work and can you add less ads a cheaper premium like $2 a year or something and can you do challenges and last less things that need the premium thanks They responded quickly and now I know what to do

    Love this app. Love how it turns out when you've finished. So colourful. Very relaxing. Only downside is the amount you have to pay to subscribe. If if was a lot cheaper just to buy out right I might have thought about getting it. But I will just stick to the free one. Otherwise I do love the app.
  • Best coloring app with one flaw May 8, 2021

    By Pooky254
    This is the most enjoyable coloring app I have used. The picture are dynamic and take some effort to complete, similar to an actual paint-by-number kits you can by in the craft store. The controls are friendly to use and it’s easy to complete the paintings any way you want - finish each color one at a time, or portions of the painting as you go along. Of course I am not a fan of subscription models with apps like this. I am much more willing to pay a flat rate to gain full access. At least I can buy packs of coins to purchase portions of the collections, but the prices are a little steep for me. UPDATE I recently got an iPad with the Apple Pencil and thought that might be a good experience with this app, and I was right. I like using the pencil as it makes it easier to deal with both very small and very large sections. Unfortunately I found a BIG missing feature. When I first installed the app on my iPad, the images I had already colored were recognized on the iPad, along with progress rewards. I figures this means the app syncs progress on iOS devices. Wrong. As I started coloring on each device, I noticed this isn’t the case at all. Given that iCloud makes this easy to do, and could even be set as an option in the settings, I had to take away a star for this. Very disappointing.

    Enjoyable and relaxing paint by number app. Different from the others, April Coloring is more like authentic oil painting by number where you fill in shaded areas. Colors are vivid, outlines sharp and there are plenty of free pictures to do. April Coloring is the perfect app for when I just need a little down time.

    Simply put...I love this swipe & color app.& the black background is perfect also how numbrs remain until area is completely covered! Only problem I incur is while swipping at times my whole pic moves as I do need to enlarge to b able to cover whole area. Am I the only one experiencing this problem? Is it fixable or is it my cellular service?

  • Frustrating coloring book Oct 28, 2020

    By ipod geek
    This app is weird. I downloaded it because the App Store recommended it some time ago. Honestly, I think it's because of the $10 a month in app purchase. I think this is an art app, but it's more like a game. You randomly get stars, that you need to unlock coloring books, but only 2-4 pictures are unlocked per book. There is also another random occurrence that gives you gold coins, after watching some irritating ads. Those gold coins can be used to purchase the remaining pictures in the coloring book. But, for the monthly fee (which is insanely high) you apparently don't have these annoyances. For $120 you can buy a lot more real coloring books and art supplies (crayons, pens, pencils), especially if you go to the dollar store. I really wanted to like this app. The controls are weird, am I coloring, or scrolling? The app doesn't seem to know. Well, I guess I was near a section that needed to be filled in, so it seems to want me to do that instead of scrolling, but I wanted to be scrolling. The zoom level goes from super zoomed in (like a pixel in the painting is almost half the screen), to not quite far out. I'd like to see more on the page, but when you do that it shows you the picture with some animation, not really what I wanted. I downloaded this app to help me relax, but I think it just gets under my skin. YMMV.

    Too much 'pay now' options shoved in your face. Can't get into the free pics without having to watch a video either. I recommend 'happy colour' instead, it's TAP only but completely free to use. None of that subscription BS.
  • Why make it a free game? Apr 15, 2021

    By Zap578
    The creators made the game free just to trick you. Right when you open the app, it asks you to buy premium. Which is a 10 dollar a month subscription. Just to be able to get all the painting right off the bat. If you don’t do premium, you are forced to do the paintings in order, want to do a pretty dessert first? Too bad, you need to do pink flowers. And even after you do a painting, you need to wait 2 hours to do the next one. But you can go to the next one instantly if you buy premium! Stupid. Have fun emptying your bank account for something digitally when you can go out and buy paint, paintbrushes, and canvases for a longer project that you can display on your walls. And you don’t need to spend 10 dollars a month for a 3 minute project. Or wait 2 hours to make another painting. And you can make any painting you can think of, instead of being limited to a few weird blocky drawings you might not even want to paint. And the paint and paintbrushes will last longer. And that stuff isn’t that expensive and you could probably buy it all at a dollar store for decent enough quality. Anyway, I hope you now have changed your mind about wasting your time and money.
  • Color motion Nov 21, 2019

    By Tiranish
    I like the app for the most part but it has some things I would like to change or see improved. It was hard to find an app that actually lets you “color” the sections rather than tap and fill it in. This app lets you “color” but once you fill the section 80%ish of the way it fills in the rest. I kinda wish it wouldn’t do that, this is what I’m looking to do after all and I don’t want the help. Also, it really wants you to get the free trial and pay them, eventually, for more pictures to color. It has what looks like a coin system (I’ve been getting coins for completing parts of the pictures) so why can’t I use those coins or points to purchase more pictures? I have to wait for one to become available, usually when a timer is up, or I have to color a picture I’m not interested in coloring for another to be available, and even that one I usually don’t want to color. I don’t get to pick the pictures I want to color, it’s a “take it or leave it” situation. So I give this app a 2 star rating because I think it’s pretty controlling on the app developer side on what I can/cannot do, but I like that I can “color” the pictures.
  • Updates ruined a very good app Jun 21, 2019

    By sangeo24
    When I subscribed to this app I did it for a full year with full confidence that I would enjoy it as much at the end of the subscription as I did when I started but one day there was a new look and with it came a severe decline in availability of pictures I could color. I use to be able to get pictures based on points (750 point) and you you got a new 10 to 12 pack of pictures, now that feature is gone. I use to be able to buy and use “ coins” to buy packs of pictures, that feature is gone. Now every 7 days you get 20 pictures to color, I can do that in 2 days. I got this app as part of therapy to work on my wrist after a fall crushed the bones that required reconstruction surgery. The coloring helps gain and maintain flexibility so what you have done is killed my therapy! I will be canceling this app at the end of the year because you will not refund my money for the remainder of the year, this is, in effect, a bate and switch and it is a horrible thing to do to a person on disability!

  • This app has changed my life Mar 26, 2020

    By 223cool
    When I first downloaded this app, I was looking for a game to play when I’m bored and have nothing to do. I started playing and I couldn’t stop. I absolutely love this app and how much it has done for me. I always have trouble focusing and have anxiety and OCD. This app relaxes me and makes me calm. As an artist, this app has shown me how much I enjoy art and has fueled a new desire for me to paint. I can’t stress enough how helpful this app is for those who get stressed frequently. This app is always my go to when I need to take a break. This app has also helped me so much with patience. I’ve never been an impatient person, but this app has truly changed my perspective. I do yoga once a week, and always have trouble with the meditation aspect, but this app has helped me stay focused on the task. A few months ago, I wouldn’t be able to write a long review like this one. Ever since I downloaded April Coloring, I feel more self confident and accepting. I highly recommend this app to everyone, regardless of emotional stability.
  • Fun app, but GREAT customer service May 1, 2020

    By BronwynL
    In search of some new zenful art apps I downloaded this app yesterday, but was immediately frustrated by the fact my Apple Pencil didn’t work. While the app worked okay with my finger, there are some very fine details in the pictures that are a bit clunky with a finger, and I prefer to use my pencil with art apps anyway. I wrote to the company and within MINUTES I got a response, very kindly apologizing for the problem and asking for some more information, which I was able to provide. Today, not 24 hours later, they’ve rolled out an update that fixes the problem! They also followed up to make sure it worked for me! I’m so impressed! The app itself is well designed and easy to use, and the images are beautiful. I like coloring apps where you have your own choice of color, but sometimes I need the slightly more meditative experience of a paint by number, and this perfectly fits the bill. Also, now that the app is updated, my Apple Pencil works very well!

And that’s pretty much everything good to say but back to the bad stuff So when your coloring when you leave the app and come back let’s say someone calls you and you answer them when you come back you have to watch a whole bunch of ads for it to save your progress. Well since I just got it I don’t know all the things but thanks for reading this long review and I really want the developer to respond and can you put it do that you can see your finished work with the unfinished work and can you add less ads a cheaper premium like $2 a year or something and can you do challenges and last less things that need the premium thanks They responded quickly and now I know what to do
  • Great but needs landscape mode Sep 25, 2020

    By Midwestro
    This is the first coloring app that I’ve actually kept on my iPad and used consistently. It honestly helps me to stay focused and listen more attentively in long Zoom meetings. Pros include 1) “natural” mechanics that make it feel a bit more like actually coloring 2) a good selection of pictures that are interesting to adults 3) excellent representation of different cultures/skin colors and 4) good support for the Apple pencil. My only gripe? There is apparently no support for landscape mode. Given that many of the pictures are wider than tall, this means that it is virtually impossible to get more than a portion of the picture in your screen without snapping out to the whole picture (where you can’t see the numbers) or too far in (where you can’t really tell what you’re actually coloring). Consequently, you have to spend an annoying amount of time panning around and carefully zooming in and out to try to find the numbers you want. Aggravating. Fortunately, this is my only complaint thus far about a truly pleasant app experience.

    Liking it so far, but I do have a suggestion. Right now the game is set so that when you click a number on the actual picture, it will switch to that number. I would really like some way to lock the numbers so that they don't switch, because it's very easy to accidentally touch the wrong thing and then I have to switch back to what I was actually working on. Also, the game could use a better system of moving the painting around. It's very hard to move the painting vs color something.
  • Pretty great! Mar 26, 2020

    By I like Minecraft 🙂
    I really, really like this app. I’m not allowed to purchase things on my phone, so the subscription is a little annoying, but other than that I love it! I’m so glad that it’s not little pixels that you have to color individually, that’s always irritating. Also, the pictures are beautiful and most of them are free to purchasable with coins, which are not hard to get. And when you buy galleries with coins, all the pictures are free. But the thing that I’m most happy about, which is a personal preference, is that the cat gallery is free. The dog one, too. Last thing, it’s amazing that you guys really care about the feedback you get! It’s so great that you guys read through them and respond to a lot of them. Thank you! Keep April great! Edit: Thanks for the response! I do have one suggestion - can you make a way for people to redo pictures? And if that’s already an option, I want to know know how... I’m almost done with the cat gallery and want to do more kitties! Thank you!

    Really excellent controls and fill-in response. Even so, when I'm done with a pic there is no sense of achievement. If I'm careful or sloppy how I "draw" it doesn't matter. No way to pick my own colors. No way to blend colors across predefined boundaries. No way to make a mistake. Every finished pic looks the same, no matter who does it. What's the point? STILL, THE BEST DIGITAL PAINT-BY-NUMBER I'VE SEEN SO FAR. If only it was interesting...
  • Love brush strokes, but not the in picture color changes May 28, 2021

    By SouthernBelle57
    The pictures in this set are outstanding. What distinguishes it from most other paint -by-number type apps is the brush stroke method, allowing one to shade large areas of color without a lot of tedious, finger aching tapping. That’s the good side. The one big negative is that the app will switch to a different color if one goes “outside the lines.” This can get annoying when one is working in an area in which many small areas of different colors are close together, especially if you happen to be someone who prefers to color the picture in by sequential color numbers as opposed to by completing objects or areas with several different numbers, e.g., an animal or flower (object) or grass, sky or ocean (area). A possible fix could be to make it so the color being indicated in the picture only switches when one pushes a different number on the color list but not when one touches a different number in the picture itself.

    Beautiful pictures, however I'm not a fan of my page moving on me when I color. That said, once you get used to how to manipulate the painting it's easier and mostly enjoyable. Is it possible to put an example of the process of coloring in, instead of trying to figure out how to not make the page move around at first? After updates I will rate it a 5. Thank you
  • May 28, 2021

    By Heather Lilley
    Nice relaxing coloring game. The screen freezes for a few seconds when you need to move on once in a while, but then it's fine.. The only thing I don't care for is that I'm pretty sure I'm getting spam text messages because of this game. **Update 5/28/21** The spam messages seemed to have stopped, so at this point I can't confirm that it actually came from this game. Play on and enjoy 😎
  • Best coloring app with one flaw May 8, 2021

    By Pooky254
    This is the most enjoyable coloring app I have used. The picture are dynamic and take some effort to complete, similar to an actual paint-by-number kits you can by in the craft store. The controls are friendly to use and it’s easy to complete the paintings any way you want - finish each color one at a time, or portions of the painting as you go along. Of course I am not a fan of subscription models with apps like this. I am much more willing to pay a flat rate to gain full access. At least I can buy packs of coins to purchase portions of the collections, but the prices are a little steep for me. UPDATE I recently got an iPad with the Apple Pencil and thought that might be a good experience with this app, and I was right. I like using the pencil as it makes it easier to deal with both very small and very large sections. Unfortunately I found a BIG missing feature. When I first installed the app on my iPad, the images I had already colored were recognized on the iPad, along with progress rewards. I figures this means the app syncs progress on iOS devices. Wrong. As I started coloring on each device, I noticed this isn’t the case at all. Given that iCloud makes this easy to do, and could even be set as an option in the settings, I had to take away a star for this. Very disappointing.

    I really like this app i use it all the time. Just wish i could do more pictures without having to go premium. Wish you could get coins easier as well.
  • Fun but too many ads Feb 10, 2020

    By HolloarR
    I do enjoy the coloring, in that it does actually let you color in the spaces, not just touch to fill the area with color. As I am on a budget I have not paid for a subscription. As you complete more pictures you level up to open more galleries. However, it will only let you color in a few pictures within the gallery before requiring you spend coins you earn by interrupting the coloring process to watch an ad. Sometimes you only have access to 2 of 10 pictures before the rest are locked. You then use the coins to open one picture at a time. After spending the earned coins to open a picture you then also have to watch an ad! What? I just paid my 50 coins and now I have to watch an ad too? There is also a daily picture in which in which you watch an ad to open, that’s fair, but then after the picture is open, you touch and another ad pops up! I thought I already watched the ad to open it, why does another one pop up?! The ads are popping up too often, I may not keep this app. Edit, so many pro trump ads, what’s that about? It’s very off putting.
  • Great app but... Aug 14, 2020

    By dudhrhrh
    I love this app, I love the oil painting feel to the paintings while I’m physically doing the motion to color in the pieces instead of tap to color. After using this app for free for several months and watching all the ads I could to gain coins and buy new packs I want to color, I decided to try the free trial to maybe go premium. I was excited for the no ads and to be able to still build coins without watching the ads and to be able to buy packs I wouldn’t otherwise be able to. However, buying the premium or the subscription is not really as great and freeing as I thought it was going to be. It will not give me pop up coin options while coloring anymore so the ONLY way to get coins and buy packs is to watch ads. I’m also not allowed to buy the packs only offered to subscription members, I completely have to wait till I reach that level, which might take months. I just feel like for $9.99 a month or $50 a year I should be offered more options than just not having ads. I’m PAYING for this app, I should have 100% access to everything if I pay out of my own pocket for a game

    Great pictures. Ads are needed, I suppose. On my Samsung Tab A device, there is way too much lag between screens. For that reason I'm gonna have to uninstall. Waiting for it to load, just to watch an ad between pictures is not condusive to stress relief.
  • Good game, greedy ad implementation Feb 5, 2021

    By unamused brony
    April Coloring is a very enjoyable app, even if you’re like me and don’t want to bother with a subscription. There is a pretty reliable way to collect in-game currency to unlock pictures otherwise barred behind the subscription service. However... There is no quality control whatsoever going towards the ads you do get, or the length. What is especially infuriating are the unskippable 30-second ads, some I would rather close the app over rather than watch. I have very strong opinions about weight-loss ads. I think they’re disgusting and exploitative and that it is completely unacceptable and immoral to feed off human insecurity as a moneymaker. These ads are in the unskippable 30 second format, and yes, I close the app to reboot when I’m given them. This app is in serious need of quality control regarding the content of its ads, and unskippable 30 second ads should not exist. Period. Make it possible to forfeit your reward for skipping after 5 seconds. I will not tolerate abusive ads. I will force close the app every single time I come across one if necessary.

    I really enjoy this app. There are a good variety of pictures and you have some control over the number of ads you watch. My only issue is that the app causes my phone (Samsung Note 10) to run hot, even when it is the only app running, so I can only color for a short time before having to give my phone a break to cool down.
  • Missing key feature Jan 12, 2020

    By LilRihRih
    Nice app, very fun to do. Two things that I do not like about this app is that it takes FOREVER TO gain a new level, there are sections that will not open at all until you reach a certain level, no matter if you are paying for this app or not, it’s not happening. I feel that is not fair and there should be an option for that or make it possible to reach those levels, you literally will have to color all day long for several days to reach a new level, it’s taken me two weeks just to get to level 2😩😩...ridiculous. Also, it would be nice to have a separate tab that shows all the ones you’ve completed in one location, instead of having them all over the gallery. This is why I take away two stars, too hard to level up and no organization. Other than that it’s a nice way to pass some time, the pictures are beautiful and easy to do.
  • Frustrating coloring book Oct 28, 2020

    By ipod geek
    This app is weird. I downloaded it because the App Store recommended it some time ago. Honestly, I think it's because of the $10 a month in app purchase. I think this is an art app, but it's more like a game. You randomly get stars, that you need to unlock coloring books, but only 2-4 pictures are unlocked per book. There is also another random occurrence that gives you gold coins, after watching some irritating ads. Those gold coins can be used to purchase the remaining pictures in the coloring book. But, for the monthly fee (which is insanely high) you apparently don't have these annoyances. For $120 you can buy a lot more real coloring books and art supplies (crayons, pens, pencils), especially if you go to the dollar store. I really wanted to like this app. The controls are weird, am I coloring, or scrolling? The app doesn't seem to know. Well, I guess I was near a section that needed to be filled in, so it seems to want me to do that instead of scrolling, but I wanted to be scrolling. The zoom level goes from super zoomed in (like a pixel in the painting is almost half the screen), to not quite far out. I'd like to see more on the page, but when you do that it shows you the picture with some animation, not really what I wanted. I downloaded this app to help me relax, but I think it just gets under my skin. YMMV.
  • Why make it a free game? Apr 15, 2021

    By Zap578
    The creators made the game free just to trick you. Right when you open the app, it asks you to buy premium. Which is a 10 dollar a month subscription. Just to be able to get all the painting right off the bat. If you don’t do premium, you are forced to do the paintings in order, want to do a pretty dessert first? Too bad, you need to do pink flowers. And even after you do a painting, you need to wait 2 hours to do the next one. But you can go to the next one instantly if you buy premium! Stupid. Have fun emptying your bank account for something digitally when you can go out and buy paint, paintbrushes, and canvases for a longer project that you can display on your walls. And you don’t need to spend 10 dollars a month for a 3 minute project. Or wait 2 hours to make another painting. And you can make any painting you can think of, instead of being limited to a few weird blocky drawings you might not even want to paint. And the paint and paintbrushes will last longer. And that stuff isn’t that expensive and you could probably buy it all at a dollar store for decent enough quality. Anyway, I hope you now have changed your mind about wasting your time and money.
  • Color motion Nov 21, 2019

    By Tiranish
    I like the app for the most part but it has some things I would like to change or see improved. It was hard to find an app that actually lets you “color” the sections rather than tap and fill it in. This app lets you “color” but once you fill the section 80%ish of the way it fills in the rest. I kinda wish it wouldn’t do that, this is what I’m looking to do after all and I don’t want the help. Also, it really wants you to get the free trial and pay them, eventually, for more pictures to color. It has what looks like a coin system (I’ve been getting coins for completing parts of the pictures) so why can’t I use those coins or points to purchase more pictures? I have to wait for one to become available, usually when a timer is up, or I have to color a picture I’m not interested in coloring for another to be available, and even that one I usually don’t want to color. I don’t get to pick the pictures I want to color, it’s a “take it or leave it” situation. So I give this app a 2 star rating because I think it’s pretty controlling on the app developer side on what I can/cannot do, but I like that I can “color” the pictures.

    Too much 'pay now' options shoved in your face. Can't get into the free pics without having to watch a video either. I recommend 'happy colour' instead, it's TAP only but completely free to use. None of that subscription BS.
  • Updates ruined a very good app Jun 21, 2019

    By sangeo24
    When I subscribed to this app I did it for a full year with full confidence that I would enjoy it as much at the end of the subscription as I did when I started but one day there was a new look and with it came a severe decline in availability of pictures I could color. I use to be able to get pictures based on points (750 point) and you you got a new 10 to 12 pack of pictures, now that feature is gone. I use to be able to buy and use “ coins” to buy packs of pictures, that feature is gone. Now every 7 days you get 20 pictures to color, I can do that in 2 days. I got this app as part of therapy to work on my wrist after a fall crushed the bones that required reconstruction surgery. The coloring helps gain and maintain flexibility so what you have done is killed my therapy! I will be canceling this app at the end of the year because you will not refund my money for the remainder of the year, this is, in effect, a bate and switch and it is a horrible thing to do to a person on disability!
