  • 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!

  • Excellent app with excellent diversity Sep 27, 2018

    By Infinitely Whelmed
    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!

    Beautiful pictures but I'm disappointed that I have to worry about a trial in order to color previous pictures. Can't really earn in game coins easily without (of course like most other games) spending a little hard earned money. I won't harp on it too bad, so if you want to put in your money to an app this would likely be a great calming app to do so

  • YOUR EYES OPEN WIDE! Nov 7, 2020

    By "PAKALOLO"
    All of us in some way are stressed, and enough with negativity in our Country. I had to find a way to calm myself. Our life is in our hands, no one else is to blame for the choices we make. We smile with our Glory, or we cry for letting that go. This paint by the numbers is nothing like I thought it would be “ Paint by the numbers?” I can do better than that! But I turned my thought to the movement of my strokes, the blending coming together and not even aware I was calm. I now thought of my emotions. I was focused to make sure every number was completely filled in. I noticed the check mark on the color I finished, and moving on to the next. While doing the painting it never entered my mine as to what I felt in the start of my review, PAINT BY THE NUMBERS! Was now Paint by the Numbers. When I finished the painting I had only the thought of the next one to accomplish. I, not once said the word, finish, it was accomplish. I would highly recommend this app to fill anyone with a clear mind, heart beat slowing down, the mind to bring your thoughts in calmness.

    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

    Game is fantastic. I love the game. The reason I am giving 1 star is all the freaking advertisements! Watch a video to get a picture, sure, another ad to open it, another ad if you open Facebook messenger, another ad if you sit still too long. Another ad for completing the puzzle, for going forward a page, back a page. Hoboy are they getting their ad money. Sure you can pay 10$ monthly for premium but... nope. Not happening. Tried to sit through it but I just couldn't handle the ads so bye.

  • 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.

    My favorite coloring app! It takes a while to load, but it's so fun and engrossing. The pictures are beautiful, and it's so satisfying watching them come to life! This app reminds me of the old painting books I had as a kid, where you just use a brush and water over pre-colored dots that turned into paint when wet! My own children loved those, too!!! Completely addictive!!!

  • 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.

    Unique because you swipe instead of tap. Its a low stress and relaxing experience. I don't have an issue with paying to unlock pictures. You give us the option to earn coins by watching ads. The thing I appreciate the most is the ads. When we are forced to watch them, we are able to skip them with in seconds. The mere thing I would critique on is how there is no option to compete. I think if you add event's so we can win rewards, that would push this game up and surpass your competitors -G'job.

    I do like this app a lot. The ONLY issue I have is how much money you have to pay to get some packs or be a member. I don't mind watching ads to unlock things or earning stars to unlock. But I can't afford so much money a month for one game. With the amount of ads you have, I high doubt you need that much money at all. It sucks I won't be able to ever get some packs because I can't afford them.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

    I would give the app 5 stars, but the star reward counter is not counting properly. I have no "in-progress games" going at the moment, but the counter is showing an odd number ( 7 below a completed game count). I now that each completed painting is worth 50 stars, so I know that I'm missing 7.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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.

    This game is nice and satisfying, but I cannot get past the monthly price tag for a coloring game when there are other games much cheaper. If you want to play free without paying a monthly fee, be prepared to wait two hours PER PICTURE. That's right, you can only color one picture per two hours. I gave stars for how satisfying it is and the nice layout, but the tinegating and the price tag doesn't allow me to give any further.

  • 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!
