Ratings and Reviews
Colour stunning scenes from BBC documentaries.
Images need cleaning up!
It's a great app, the only flaw, and it's an important one, is the quality of the source images.
They obviously haven't cleaned them up, if you fill with a colour then there will be lots of small white pixels left over, most of which are almost impossible to get to. This makes the final drawings look really poor and childish.
They need to invest a bit more time and effort to clean up the black & white starter drawings and make sure they fill properly. It's not difficult, fill the entire image with red for instance, by clicking all the major areas. Then go in and tidy up any small white areas - black them out or expand slightly the adjoining white bits. Then repeat until the final image is fully covered.
If they do that then this is a brilliant app, until then - it's okay.
Get the controls right
Marvellous app with high potential; its approach is a great first step. Navigation however (e.g. Zooming, moving around picture) can be quite a pain.
Also, areas not meant to be coloured may be coloured unnoticed, hence requiring a lot of undos and therefore much hard work is deleted along with the error.
Do expand beyond Planet Earth II, but don't steer (too far) away from wildlife.
