What A GREAT App!

I am going to fess up here. I'm an adult and I love to doodle and PRETEND I can draw. Sadly, I have zero drawing talent.

Anyway, I've tried lots of coloring apps over the years and this is by FAR the very best drawing/coloring app of its kind that I have ever seen and used! I LOVE that you can choose to use crayons, colored pencils, markers (some VERY cool markers too), as well as paint brushes. There are LOTS of colors to choose from and you can even create your own colors! I appreciate that the coloring books can be individually purchased at a reasonable price. In the past you had to buy multiple apps to combine all these features.

Bummer! Only 2-3 days of using this app, I too experienced a crash and total deletion of my current work. I think it has something to do with the "undo" button. I hit it a couple of times rapidly and my work disappeared then reappeared but the next time I used the undo button everything was lost on my current project and the app froze for a bit.

Super Fun Creativity

This app is great mobile art studio app for all ages of children 2-92.
It is easy and fun to use. It has many types of tools to choose from.
There are paint brushes, crayons, colored pencils, markers and more. There are ways to enhance and fine tune the mark that each of these tools makes. There are many selections for colors. The pencils, for instance, had 68 colors to choose from, which could also be modified into the tints or shades of these colors. This app provides a platform for fun open-ended creativity. It also has coloring books for those who like that. It has nice save and undo features. This app is a must have for helping children explore open ended art creativity.

Worst app

This app has great features, however; it doesn't save your work. I have worked on a drawing for 3 weeks. Today, when I opened the app and did minor touch up work it was working fine. Then, I hit the back button one time and it erased all the work I previously worked on for the past week. Don't waste your money on this app, there are way better ones that will actually SAVE your work. It's sad you have to pay for this app and this has happened to me several times. Complete Garbage. How can you do wonderful art with a app that erases your work. I'll probably be 60 by the time I will be able to finish this drawing that erases half my work! Please fix this bug, until then; your app is going on the cloud. I suggest everyone to do the same!
