Really good for anxiety
I suffer from sever anxiety attacks basically every night. My routine is putting something on the TV in the background, sucking on ice cubes, and opening this app. I actually turned off painting wrong numbers to aid in just relaxing, worry free colouring. It usually calms me down pretty quickly. Sometimes, I’ll colour to the point that my finger hurts from rubbing against the screen so much.
The reason I gave 4 (I’d give 4.5 if I could) stars is because although it’s a great app, I do have 2 issues. Sometimes if I’m watching an ad, it won’t play and there’s no way to exit the ad so I have to exit and clear the app completely and reopen it. Or there’ll be times where I’m watching an ad, accidentally click on it or entertain the demo and it’ll open the download app page. The issue with this is that when I go back to the ad to leave, it won’t let me click on anything or exit either. I also think it’s a bit much to pay $9.99 a week to avoid these ads.
Secondly, it’s not an issue exactly with the app itself, it’s more of a suggestion to put in. When you import pictures to the community, it does tell you how many pictures you’ve uploaded and how many likes in total you got on them. There should be a feature to see how many likes you’ve gotten on individual pictures.
Overall, this is a really really good app. It’s calming, it’s mind numbing, and it’s something to do.
Great game but there is some thing
First off, I think this is a great game! But there is two things I don’t like, the sound effects. To turn off vibration and sound effects you have to go into settings. So if I’m new and I don’t know I would have to go into settings and scroll down and see if there is sound effects off and vibration off. Personally me, I’m fine with it, but it sounds loud. And the first sound effect sounds ok, but the second one sounds recorded. The second thing is I don’t like the ads, now I have not seen any inappropriate ones. But I do not like how long and how many there are. Like, after every painting there is a ad, so be aware. Now, I do like the the daily painting page. It is very neat and nice, the paintings are pretty. And I do like that you get new ones every day. Personally, I think this is a great game I give it a 4 star! Now, I did read the reviews and some said “...is very laggy...” and so on. I have not experienced it, but if you live not with high speed internet I doubt this app will work. One more thing about their ad so it looks like it will be glitter paint but when you go in it is NOT glitter paint. Which really disappointed me. I think you should change that if you are not going to have glitter paint. Thanks for reading this long review, if you have! The conclusion is, That this is a very good art app and I would really use it, even though there are some flaws. Thanks!
Amazing 🤩, but something....

Don’t get my wrong, I love this game so much! Just the sound effects are annoying, when you try to relax and do a little drawing, it makes sound when ever you use your finger. You have to go to settings and turn your sound off so the finger thing won’t make sound. But no games are exactly perfect, not even highly addictive games. I recommend this app to you so much, so relaxing, (if you turn your sound off) and so addictive, I give this app all five stars, it’s better then anything. If you do not have Color by Number, download it now on your Mobile device, it is the best!!! If you are thinking about getting the app, get it! It is the best like I said! Yes, there are adds, but only when you open or close a drawing, and it isn’t at all annoying. I love that there are millions of drawings to open, and all different, like one section is all people, one is all cute pets, one is emojis....buy it!! Don’t think about it, I promise you’ll love it, you guys. Some is for older people, some is for younger! You can choose almost anything, and you can also search what your looking for at the top of the app when you open it, it is the best, (like I keep saying) buy it.
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. :)
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
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! 🙂
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!
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
