Open this Apple Design Award winner and start coloring. In moments, all your stresses just kinda wash away, right? That’s the nice side effect of this tremendous coloring app. It’s packed with creativity-enhancing tools—spray paint, customized color palettes, and a huge assortment of intuitive features. Our favorite pictures switch from coloring between the lines to going rogue.

The best coloring book app ever!!


Ok, so all of the other apps that are "free" really aren't. You have to download them to then purchase a monthly or yearly subscription which in my opinion is stupid. What if you don't like something you get? Or if you don't color that month, or forget about the app?? Lake allows you to either do a subscription (which I have already shared my feelings on) OR they provide you with the awesome option to purchase a single coloring book (with a good amount of pages to color in might I add) from the artist who made it for $2.99. This is a one time purchase for that specific coloring book that YOU like!! And the money you spend on that book goes to the artist who made it which is pretty cool too! I assume it's a relatively new app cause there aren't a whole lot of coloring books to choose from but the ones that are available are super cute and fun to color. This app is very fulfilling not only cause I can color in the pictures but I also know my money is going to the person who made it!! :)

Problems With Auto! Saving

Joshua D.

I like this app, though I won't subscribe to it because I think that's ridiculous. But, I would pay a reasonable one-time price for everything offered here, like $10 probably.

Besides that though, I've found that the app has issues auto-saving progress on a project. I had just colored in quite a bit on a page and when I came back later the project was missing about a quarter of the progress I had made that it didn't save. I noticed too, that I'm not the only user experiencing this issue with app not saving projects properly.

This is infuriating and I sincerely hope and ask that the developer please to look into making the saving or auto-saving feature of Lake work much better. Like how about make it so whenever a user cancels out or leaves the app, all progress is saved of what you have colored on any and all projects in the program? And I'm having this issue on an iPad Air 2 running iOS 11.1.2, if that helps you fix it.

If this huge, saving bug issue, were corrected and the developer ditched the subscription nonsense and sold the app for one fee. Well, I think that this app would then be worthy of 5-stars.

Thank you if you'll look into this saving bug problem and consider offering a one-time fee version of the app. But, I know the latter you won't consider at all. At least not when there are customers who ridiculously find it acceptable to pay monthly or yearly for a friggin' coloring book app, which is just insane in my opinion.
