Coloring has been shown to reduce stress and anxiety. Just 5-10 minutes of coloring can provide the same benefits as meditation, and help you practice mindfulness, live in the moment, enhance concentration, and encourage your creative side.
So take a break, and relax with Pigment, the ultimate coloring app. You can choose to "tap and fill" or immerse yourself in Pigment's unique coloring experience that lets you color like you would on paper, with 24 different pencils, markers and brushes. Get creative with the watercolor and pastel tools, use markers, colored pencils and even oil paint!
Pigment also gives you an unlimited number of colors using the color wheel and innovative shade control slider. You can also create and save your own custom color palettes or choose from the curated ones provided.
You can import your own images, draw and paint right in the app or choose from the large collection of professionally-drawn illustrations including flowers, mermaids, people, animals, landscapes, mandalas and so much more!
And for the more advanced colorists you can choose from Freehand, Automatic, or Advanced mode, giving you even greater control.

Ratings and Reviews
Few things are more relaxing than settling down with a good coloring book—at least, until the kid we borrowed it from asks for it back. Pigment unleashes our grown-up creative energy with a surprisingly deep array of artist’s tools and tweaks. It even lets us automatically color within the lines, giving our productions a sheen of perfection. We expect a call from the gallery any day now.
Love this app!
This is a great app for anyone old or young! I think this is one of the best apps I've found. I like that you can actually color instead of just point and click. You can choose to do automatic where you don't have to worry about going outside lines. This is great for when you are in the car or you can do free hand and it's just like coloring on paper. There is a cost if you want to have access to all the colors and types of ink/styles, but I think it is worth it. It gives me the satisfaction of coloring/relaxing yet lets me save a ton of money on all the gel pens and colored pencils I go through. It's also mu.) better on my eyes because you can enlarge and turn to whatever angle you want. I had gotten so that I needed to wear reading glasses because some of these coloring books have such small detail. Lastly the best part is that I can upload pics from my favorite coloring books and do them over and over again. Plus if I make a mistake or choose a color that I don't care for I can just erase. If you like to color as much as I do, You have got to get this app. Especially if you have the IPad Pro and pencil... it's a dream. The only thing I wish were different would be the glitter option. I love to use glitter pens IRL so I wish this. Would sparkle and stand out more, but I still like to use it. Hope this helps anyone considering paying for this app.
Best Coloring App
No contest, hands down, the best coloring app out there if you want a real coloring book experience without hauling your coloring books and tools around with you. I’ve tried a bunch. Tap and color isn’t coloring - for me, anyway. It’s cool for my 3 year old granddaughter so it’s nice to have that option, but Pigment really makes use of the apple pencil, it feel like coloring. I debated for months whether to purchase this app for the year. I went through the 7 stages and was hung up on anger for quite some time. The free version actually does give you a lot to do - all you need really if you are just using it for stress relief or to pass timed. I LOVE being able to import my granddaughters coloring book pages. That way, we can take the best of them with us! You are limited to the number of images you can import with the free version so that finally pushed me over the edge. I understand those who think this is a high cost app - I’d never pay 10/mo. But 5? I talked myself into it. Honestly, for how much you get with the premium, I don't regret paying. I’ve paid much more for much less. I use this app every day and now I can use any coloring page I want, use any coloring medium, import to my heart’s content and even create my own color palettes. Super in my book - both free and premium.
