So, I just downloaded this game and I already love it! My friend told me about it. She is the best! 👍💯👏 I immediately downloaded it. This game does have some problems but not big ones. First, when you log into it for the very first time it shows you "wanna get the full package?" or whatever and I thought I HAD to pay, but I found the "X" in the courner. Come on guys. I know you want money for the game but not everyone can afford that. I mean I can but like I won't spend money to be on a silly phone all day drawing. I can have way more fun actually drawing on real paper for free than on my phone. I'm not saying that it isn't fun. It's awesome, but I'm not paying for that. So anyways I think they should make the "X" a bit darker because I could barely see it. Now the game is great! You should totally get it, just dont miss the "X" in the corner. I like how you can take a pic and color it. That is the best part. Now warning... Half of the pictures you have to buy, which is fine because they have so many options. This game I think you should totally get!
I’d give 2.5 stars now.

I used to like this app a lot. It had a lot of ads then, but now they play ads every single time you exit out of a painting, turn your phone off with the app open and turn your phone back on, open a painting. Essentially, the only time an ad doesn’t play is when you open the app. Second of all I was able to play this app on airplane mode, now it requires internet and I can’t use it on airplane mode. Next, I used to be able to watch an add and get 5 paint buckets for that ad. Now I watch an ad and I get 2 paint bucket. My third issue with this app is when I watch an add to get paint buckets sometimes my phone will turn off because I’m on low power mode and when I turn my phone back on I have clear out the app and watch another video because I didn’t get my paint buckets. Speaking of low power mode, I’ve noticed that the app now drains a lot of my battery now. It didn’t use to do that. Honestly, now when I play this app it feels like a majority of the time (50% or more), I spend is spent watching adds. I’m fine with an occasional ad here and there, but not all the time!
However, there are features that they added that I like. I can now turn my photos into paints unlimited times now. I’ve been painting a lot of pictures of Karen Carpenter. Sometimes it feels like I have a love hate relationship with this app. Also, don’t listen to those reviews praising this app because there is little to praise about this app.
Great but one small issue
Everything about this app is awesome the only thing is I’ve been having an issue with the daily painting for march 18th for the last 3 weeks (basically since it came out). At first when i tried to paint it, the image was blank and said i think something about a bad internet connection and to try again. So after several attempts to correct it over the next day or so the image finally showed up but then when i tried attempting to paint it again, it just did a replay of the “finished” drawing except I didn’t color it at all let alone finish it and it’s been that way ever since march 18th. It shows up gray/uncolored in my gallery but then when i tap on it to try to color it just, as i said, does the replay of the “finished” product even though it isn’t. I also tried connecting/contacting someone in the app about the issue and was told by a response bot, I believe, that a human representative would be with me shortly but that was a few weeks ago and i still never got a response, though with everything going on at the moment with the coronavirus i can understand. Anyway, since I don’t know if anyone has seen that message yet in the app about my issue i was hoping by writing here that maybe someone now finally would. Hope this can be fixed soon. :)
Awesome app! But a few flaws...
To be honest, I just love the app! It is great, relaxing, and super fun! But there a 2 flaws that annoy me a lot, I hope you will find the time to fix them. Flaw number 1: Sometimes I am trying to find a number and I have to press the hint button because I can’t see it, then after I press the hint button it brings me to the number like it should, but the number is not dark. Example, I am currently using the number 4, and then I click hint because I can’t find a 4. The hint brings me to a 4 but not darkened like its supposed to be. This is a waste of my hints, and time. Flaw number 2: Very laggy, I have tried everything to make it stop. I am close to the router in my home, WiFi connection=Great, and yet the app is very laggy. When I try to scroll around the screen, stops then I wait. Wait. Wait. Finally! It’s to the spot I scrolled to. When I hold my finger on the screen and drag across numbers, it stops. I wait. Wait. And wait again. FINALLY! It’s working, but over the wrong numbers. This makes me frustrated, and it is NOT relaxing. I really would like this to be fixed please, it now takes a really long time to finish coloring with these flaws. I love the app still, but it could be improved. Thank you for taking time to read this, and when I am satisfied, I will change my rating! 🙂
Really good but some edits can be made
I have the free version of this app, and one thing about a lot of apps is that if you don’t get the paid version, you don’t get anything. In this app, the paid version gives you access to more drawings, unlimited buckets, and the ability to change your name more than once. I think you should be able to change your name more than once, so for me that feature should not be for money. Also, I wish there was some sort of tutorial the first time you open the app, because I didn’t know how to use the app the first time I tried. With 3D images, when I try to use the AR feature, it gives me an ad and then kicks me out so I cannot use that. Also, some of the ads are very gruesome and/or violent. I also have a glitch where e.g, I am on number 1 and accidentally color a number 3 and have to erase it, then when I click number 3, it doesn’t show up with a gray shading but the number is still bold. I also can’t play music while in the app. Another thing, it’s very frustrating how you can only put 3 tags on an image, and (at least in the free version) you cannot create a tag. One last thing, I accidentally tapped an image one time so I deleted it from my gallery, but it keeps on coming back in my unfinished images. Overall, a good app but has technical flaws
Love the app, hate the system

The app itself is wonderful. My favorite coloring app by far. The paintings themselves are really good and the simplicity of the app is wonderful. However, I wish I could make a one time payment for no ads. I would’ve done that months ago if it was an option, but I don’t have $10 a week (or whatever the overpriced subscription is) to get rid of the ads. A while ago they removed the feature where when you were holding down and coloring, the screen would shift towards where you were coloring. That made me annoyed, and now I can’t even find the night mode option? Most of these small things I would be willing to get over if they got rid of the subscription and simply had a one time payment for no ads. I’d pay $3-$5 dollars for no ads on this app because it’s so good, but they had to do a subscription. Hell, I’d even do a subscription if it was like $1-$2 a MONTH. But almost $10 a week is absurd, I’d be genuinely surprised if they were making any money from that feature. You can pay like $10/MO for Netflix, I don’t know anyone who would pay $10/WEEK for a phone app. With every update I get more and more upset with the app, but I stick around because it’s a good time supplement and I enjoy it. Please, let me pay you once for no ads. I’d love to.
Gotten a bit tooooo flashy
By This is a great day
I got this app before all the updates and now I think that the old color by number was better than this updated version. I liked the way of catagorizing the pictures and the auto scroll. I was a bit disappointed when they took out the eraser but they brought it back in thank goodness! But I really hate the paint bucket! It messes up every single thing! Another one of my complaints is that in the most newest update the developers said that they have made the game more smooth. It is a bit better but when I opened up the app man has everything changed?! The new home screen looks in my opinion very cartoony and awful. And by awful I mean AWFUL!! They have also changed the font of the numbets which looks eh. Then we have the auto scroll. They've tried to perfect it sooo much that I can't even see what I'm painting! And the new way of painting is super super annoying. It's trying to be flashy but it's too flashy. I liked color by number when they didn't try to copy other color by number games but since this new update they have tried copying and it's turned out to be a mess!! I'm definitely not going to play this game as much as i used to. Hopefully the game developers will see their mistake and make color by number more simple and not flashy
Was Fun 😔
My last update before I delete this app. There are no longer any portrait type ones to color, the ones with hundreds of squares to color in. The portrait ones are the ones I looked forward to the most and there hasn’t been 1 in over 6 weeks!!! DISAPPOINTED 😢
Update** I had submitted the other review a little while back but felt I needed to amend my initial review. I am sadly disappointed that since the last one you have completely took away the portrait ones 😳😳 why ??? That’s the only reason I did all the little ones so I could do the portrait/ hard ones... DEEPLY disappointed!
I have really enjoyed this app especially because it helps with my anxiety and stress. I love that there are always new ones everyday because I literally have done every single free one there is 😊 There are only 2 small issues I have seen thus far. The first one is that on the 3D ones , there have been several that can not be completed saying there are still uncolored squares left when there clearly are none left to color. The last thing is the lovely portrait type ones. I understand that buying the membership will allow me to do all of the ones like that but not everyone has spending money to buy it so I wish that we non-membership people get at least 1 a day would be awesome. Thank you 🙏🏽
Community Section!! Rating: 4.3
I love the app a lot, but I have somethings that just don’t make it a 5 Star app.
1. In the community section (since I’m not a “member”) I use a lot of those photos since they are not blocked and I love that but it takes a long time to find pictures like u should have categories of the pictures and put the pictures in the categories that matches it the best! U could also add a search bar!
2. Ok so there are new pictures everyday in the community section but like there are pictures from a while back and when I try to scroll all the way down to like color them the scroller like lags/stops like at a random point and then I can’t color the picture I want which leads me to my next point...
3. When I’m coloring a picture and I stop bc I have to go and do something when I come back I go to color that picture again but everything I did before is gone so then I have to start all over please fix that so I don’t always have to start over
4. It’s not about the community section just like a little heads up um the eraser you can only erase 1 square at a time and if I want to erase a lot it makes me frustrated!! 🤬🤬
The new update...
Unlike other people, I actually love the paint bucket it helps when there’s a big space to color and it takes so long to color by hand. Although I love the app, there could be some changes. For example, I use the paint bucket a good amount of times and now when I want to watch an add to get five more it doesn’t let me watch the ad. I don’t know hi that is maybe there’s a bug, but at some point could you maybe take a look at it? Also, I get how people were complaining about how the home screen looked to cartoony and I agreed with that, but I loved the fact that when you colored a block it popped out a bit. Some people might not feel the same way, but it just made it more smoother in my opinion. The font of the number is ok it’s not the best; I like the font better when it was skinnier and not as bold. I know I’m giving a lot of suggestions and I’m not trying to MAKE you give extra work and time just for this game, but I do want you guys to try and fix some of them or update the game. I LOVE THIS APP and I will continue to play it. These are just a few suggestion that will make the app better for me personally.
