Number back ground gray

You need to change the high lit color from gray to a checked bright color. I did one picture and had such a headache that I could not do another. I like everything else.
Battery Zapper
by Photonut70 on 2020/09/16 19:21
This app uses an unbelievable amount of battery power. 25% battery usage for two paintings. I have to keep a power plug in if I use it.
Perfect app but
by Pinkdahlia25 on 2020/09/16 12:30
This would be 5 stars but I am not paying $40 a year to get rid of the ads. I am on a fixed income and that’s a ridiculous amount for coloring by numbers
Just Don’t do it
by Kashlian on 2020/09/16 08:35
they changed it... now you HAVE TO consent to be ad tracked while you surf the web ... OR PAY... A program I have enjoyed since 2012 ... I have to delete... too bad they got greedy, but No way do I allow any anonymous company to track me... thats a deal breaker every time, 😟 oh well plenty of others like this ... who respect my privacy to choose from ... bye bye karen
App suddenly not working
by MontessoriChild on 2020/09/16 05:24
Updated app and now it’s frozen on the first screen. I wait and wait and nothing loads. Tried restarting app but it doesn’t help.
Very good game
by Legomackley on 2020/09/13 15:52
Over the pandemic I got into doing paint by numbers and when I wasn’t at home I would wish I was home to do my paint by number. So I downloaded this app and I couldn’t stop playing it. It’s one of those games that if you enjoy it you enjoy and if you don’t you don’t, and what I mean about that is there is no problem with that app that will make you not enjoy it. There are barely any ads. The pictures are free, or at least I haven’t seen one that wasn’t free. The only problem I noticed is about the hints and helping features. Where they’re located is right by the painting and it is very easy to accidentally use one. I suggest that you should put a feature were if you click it you get asked “are you sure you want to use this feature”. Other than that this is a really fun addictive game.

Preview of finished picture
by jnull91 on 2020/09/08 18:29
I may be the only one, but I would really like to see the finished picture Before I start it. This is like buying a jigsaw puzzle that does not have a picture on the box. But, I DO like the app.

I like most subjects but a lot of times the colors are too much. Harsh
Please fix
by mimi1017 on 2020/09/02 17:31
Please fix what you supposedly fixed. Can’t even play anymore!!!!!! I have painted over 900 pictures. This is all I do. Now something is seriously wrong. Keeps crashing, logging out. I get halfway through a pic and it kicks me out. If it comes back on I have to restart pic all over again. What did you do?????
Oil Painting by number
by gypsyjudy on 2020/08/26 03:31
I have loved painting every picture I have painted and have done between 15 and 20 since my daughter/in-law introduced me to the app. That is, until the last one and as hard as I have looked and as many times as I have looked, I can’t get #61 to clear. There are no white spots anywhere!! What do I do? It’s very frustrating not to be able to say it’s complete!! Update-I listened to a video and used a bucket. It cleared it, but I still don’t know where the paint went. I’m very forgiving-already started another picture! 😍❤️
Grey pixels

I have stopped using this app until you change the pixels from grey to a color that is easier to see up against the grey picture
Malware Issue
by tttuuufff on 2020/08/23 20:56
Absolutely love this app! I don’t think I’ve enjoyed an app as much as this one. Unfortunately I had to delete it. I constantly receive notifications from my spamware blocker which is, I’m assuming from all the ads - which I never click on. I don’t care about the ads. But I don’t understand why this is the first app I’ve downloaded that has done this. It is extremely annoying and I have no choice but to delete it.

I love this app . it’s so calming . I loose track of time and the pictures are beautiful.
Love!
by Auntigrams on 2020/08/20 01:33
I love the colors and pictures; however, I was doing them all in landscape mode and now the app won’t allow the landscape mode only vertical. Is there a way to fix this?
Oil painting by number
by yes#25 on 2020/08/18 14:04
The app really needs to have more colorful paintings. So many of the dailies are very colorless. I will stop using if I can’t find colorful choices. There are very few Colorful” in that category, and they don’t have enough.
Your no ad icon
by Bellasings on 2020/08/18 06:39
I can see that you don’t want to read your bad reviews you only want people to rave about your site. I pay good money to have beautiful pictures and in the beginning was OK now it’s like you’re just trying to pull the wool over people’s eyes. You keep putting the same darn pictures back on there and you think we won’t notice it wrong I’m done with you crooks

Can you make it to where you can take a picture of yourself and color it?
Cool app, missing one important feature
by Slidyswinger on 2020/08/12 17:10
The one thing holding me back from liking this app is the inability to upload your own photos. Every other color by number app I use allows it. This is the best coloring app of them all, but I don’t use it because I want to use my own pictures. If that ability was in the app, I would only use this app. And it isn’t that the photos they provide aren’t cool, it’s just that some days I’m in the mood to color something more personal, like a photo of my dog or a landscape photo I’ve taken. Makes it so much more fun when the photo means something to you. If you added this feature I would subscribe to the app and use it every day.
Wish Pictures could be saved across devices
by rollinghedgehogs on 2020/08/11 04:16
First of all, I really enjoy this app and all the features it includes. It’s become a regular part of my day and is great for taking a break and de stressing. The app works well and is intuitive and easy to use on a phone though it is a little bit of a battery sucker (at least for my phone) My biggest issue is simply that there doesn’t appear to be a way for your pictures to be saved so they can travel from device to device. For example, if I were to get a new phone and resownload this app, all my progress would be lost. Perhaps this is because I don’t have a subscription? I’m not sure, but it would be nice if you could log in using Facebook or email so that the pictures you already completed would be saved across multiple devices.
Love the App
by LindsayZ on 2020/08/06 22:10
The best coloring app in the App Store. There is one major problem....you need to allow landscape coloring again. It is very uncomfortable coloring in portrait. Please change it back to landscape!!!!!

This is a great app to paint by number for relaxing. I do wish the colors were more accurate to what the flowers, or waters, were in reality.

Love this game, very good pics look so real when they are finished.
No longer able to use
by Kelleylynn042 on 2020/08/01 15:58
I paid for the whole year but now that I can’t clear out the grey background I can’t use as my old eyes aren’t what they used to be This is too bad as I loved this app prior to the last update. This ended up not being what I paid for.
Oil Painting Fantasy
by Photogirl411 on 2020/07/31 17:46
Love this app. I enjoy the challenge of finishing some of the most intricate pictures. Passes lots of time during this pandemic. Just wish it wasn’t so expensive for VIP. Keep up the good work👍🏼👍🏼
Return the option to clear grey areas
by Ken955 on 2020/07/31 16:45
The latest change removing the ability to remove the grey from fields by tapping them has made the app nearly impossible to use. With a minor visual impairment, I would go through the picturing tapping each grey area, turning it white (or a lighter shade of the color selected) be fore starting to color. Without this ability it is very difficult to see the grey highlight against the dark grey fields. Please return this feature, or make it an option to change fields or remove the entire greyscale image
Beautiful pictures

LVer how the pictures look after you complete them. They really look realistic
I really like this app. But all of sudden it does not open up.
by Verna Mae on 2020/07/30 00:02
What needs to be done so I can continue coloring on this app?
Tired of old pictures
by Silly Jilly me on 2020/07/29 05:53
I like this app. It is my favorite coloring app, but they keep recycling through old pictures instead of adding new pictures as a bonus. Almost every week the bonus picture is one that I have already colored.
Enjoying this app!
by Elaine9000 on 2020/07/28 07:07
You will not be bored with this app! There are so many oil paintings to choose from (e.g., nature, architecture, animals, beaches, still life, fruit, vegetables and so much more) and the color pallets are vibrant and beautiful! I can spend hours on coloring different oil paintings because it relaxes me and it’s fun to do. I love the light houses and beach scenes. It’s hard to put down so be prepared for that. If you have an iPad and iPad pencil it is even better. There are a few ads after you complete a painting but they are very short. The developers did a great job with this app. Thank you!!
Scary Advertisements
by LG1369 on 2020/07/28 05:49
The ads shown are not kid friendly. I just watched one where a wife gets so annoyed with her husband/boyfriend that she kills him.
Colors
by Inch1962 on 2020/07/27 01:53
I find it hard to get the colors up when I tap on them. Seems lot of times it take 3-4 taps to get colors to pop up. Besides this, I like the App. It is nice to have the challenge compared to other Apps.
Landscape not working
by Lifelong colored on 2020/07/26 19:30
I “upgraded” my iPad to a newer one my one year and now this app won’t work in landscape mode. The opening display of the app is landscape, but then it changes to portrait mode and I don’t know how to switch it back. Any ideas?
One flaw...and it’s not about money
by nearriver on 2020/07/24 00:32
I love the pictures on this app! I’ve had it for about a year now. I’ve never had an issue until now. Recently when I have to minimize the app, it now sort of “closes” itself, brings you back to the main screen, AND erases work you did prior to minimizing. I can deal with re-loading a picture, but undoing what I’ve already colored in is really starting to get on my nerves! Please fix this and I’ll happily continue using this app and referring it to friends.
I love it.
by AdkinsJay on 2020/07/23 04:26
I really enjoy this app, thou I would enjoy it more if there was an easier way to add pictures to my collection without having to tap on the picture and fill in one part before leaving and repeating it. Other wise I Love all the pictures ^^
TOO MANY BUGS!!
by MollyMax0841 on 2020/07/19 17:10

I loved it until you took away horizontal mode
by MojoCMO on 2020/07/14 13:03
I have a brand new ipad - your latest update took away horizontal mode and I use a keyboard that has my ipad in horizontal. So bummed. It’s an awesome app otherwise.
Great and not great
by pugamuga on 2020/07/13 22:24
This app is really good but there is a lot of adds for instance I had to watch an add to get a picture put then after that add I had to watch an other add also sometimes it gets a little stressful when you are trying to find the piece you are looking for.

Now starting to mess up
by Aokmom on 2020/07/09 02:17
I have been using this app for a while now. It worked very well at first and I really enjoy it, I do the painting for the day everyday. But now it is starting to mess up since they changed it to where the numbers stay on the bottom instead of disappearing. Now to get out of the app I have to close the app completely so I have to restart my I pad after every pic. Also they don’t complete and stay in the in progress stack. I would have sent this to the app creators but I can’t find how to do that.
Endless ads
by gamejess on 2020/07/08 22:37
For most paintings, colors are too dark and gloomy. And you have to close endless ads

I love this oil painting app. This is the second year I have paid for the subscription. What has happened to the bonus paintings that I would normally get for holidays.

Daily Oil Painting picture for July 2
by Gee728 on 2020/07/03 05:21
The daily picture for July 2 cannot be completed. It is the picture of a beautiful sunset. The very last piece #58 turns gray when you tap the last color but doesn’t fill in. Can this be corrected without having to paint it again? Otherwise, I love everything about this app!! It is satisfying, peaceful, and a major stress reliever in these trying times in our country. So a big THANK YOU to all who keep this app running so smoothly!!!

This app promises much...DOESN’T DELIVER
by pintrestisajoke on 2020/07/03 02:45
Too many bugs. Then they take away ALL HINTS! They’re playing footsie! My guess is, either you succumb to their PRICE GAUGING “PREMIUM” which has no ads & plenty of hints...or you GET NOTHING AT ALL OF ANY VALUE FOR FREE! Don’t waste your breath with this app. It’s completely not worth it. No better than any other online coloring book.
A Really Great App WITHOUT a Need For PREMIUM!!
by Eerawk on 2020/07/03 01:14
Honestly i was skeptical about this app from the ad. I thought premium would be needed to actually enjoy this app, and then... I opened the app and realized it was not! The are TWO new free pictures a day, and only ONE premium, which differs from EVERY OTHER coloring app I tried and have used, (colorfy, sandbox coloring, ect. Keep in mind these apps aren’t necessarily bad) And the TWO FREE pictures AREN'T EVEN BAD! They’re just as good, maybe more so as the one premium. They’re also complex, not some crappy simple picture for a seven year old. Also, not all these pictures are complex either! If you’re looking for complex, there’s plenty. If you’re looking for simple, you got simple! These pictures are really cute and realistic too. I just absolutely adore these pictures, and I keep starting new ones! The developers also care. They respond too the good and bad reviews of the game, and are working on it. You will have to note there are some pictures that need an ad to open, but that’s ok. One ad isn’t bad at all, and as I said, there’s plenty of free ones. Eventually, you will run out of free ones, but this is a new app and they don’t have thousands of pictures like some older apps do. You could also choose to watch ONE add to get FOUR hints, which is great. I just ADORE this app, it’s, it’s amazing. I HIGHLY recommend it!

Good app but does save its state well
by feitelberg on 2020/06/28 20:33
If you don’t complete a picture you really can’t save your progress and you have to start over; this annoys me no end but the app often hangs when saving at the end of your work.
Offline Options!
by Ja9Legge on 2020/06/28 16:01
I love this app, and it keeps me busy when I wanted to keep my mind off some certain things. I really wish there is available offline/download colorings for traveling where there isn’t wifi available. It would be great if the option becomes available!
Ads have stopped working
by TerriP1212 on 2020/06/23 19:22
I’ve had this app for a good while now and had a fairly enjoyable go of it, but the recent bug of ads playing and no clues coming afterwards has me to the point of removing the app entirely. The recent inundation of quickly closable ads is one thing, but making someone watch an ad for a reward that is never awarded is quite another.
Oil painting has too many comercials
by Alkgdsdghljgds on 2020/06/22 04:51
I used to enjoy the app for passing the time and watching the picture develop. But lately it is impossible to use the app. It has taken on a mind of its own with its constant links to other games. If I wanted other games I know where to look for them. It has become so annoying that I’m going to have to delete the app.

Ad- no reward
by CricketGreen:) on 2020/06/16 02:49
I watched an ad to get hints on where the color was and it did not give my reward. It made me furious so I deleted the app.

New update changed the interface
by Zilkpod on 2020/06/13 01:54
Please change the background color of pictures to white. After the update, the picture background/color of uncolored cells are all gray—this makes it very hard to see colors. Please change back to white background/cellls for uncolored!
Great App....but
by 70sSinger on 2020/06/12 01:47
So this one too now makes you watch ad after ad to move forward. Such a shame. Almost not worth it anymore.
Darn
by Mchacu on 2020/06/09 21:31
Love doing this. The colors are wonderful and the pictures are pretty, not all cartoonish like some. Only problem I’m having is suddenly it’s turning itself off and going to my home page. Over and over again I have to restart the game. Huge bummer as I just want to “paint”. Would give it a 5 star if it wouldn’t do this.
Changes
by molliverwrites on 2020/06/08 15:09
I have loved this game for a long time, however for the last six months it has continually been updated to remove things. First there were four hints and two buckets, then down to two hints and one bucket. Now if these ran out you would need to watch ads. Then the pictures slowly started to change from beautiful artwork to ones without so many colors. I haven’t seen one over 100 in ages. Then they took away all hints and buckets without watching an ad. This is in addition to any you watch to get a picture or that play upon opening. If this continues to happen, I will no longer be recommending this app to other people and possibly delete it.
Hints
by 6mus on 2020/06/08 04:02
I don’t like the way you have changed the hints for this app. When I first downloaded it, there were 4 hints to fill in all spaces with the same number and 4 hints to find one space you’re not seeing. The next upgrade gave only 2 hints each. With those updates, however, you could at least start with those hints starting on a new picture. On the last update, once the hint is used, it’s gone unless you want to watch a video.
Very sluggish on older iPad
by High Desert Jack on 2020/06/07 14:31
This app works very slowly on my older iPad - moving the picture around and resizing have noticeable lag and sometimes I have to tap a greyed in area 2 or 3 times before the app would color it in. So frustrating that I gave up after the first picture and uninstalled the app.
Beautiful!
by galityomtov on 2020/06/02 03:55
Thank you for this app. Every picture is beautiful and it’s a joy to color them.
It’s nice
by Tiny-bug on 2020/06/01 00:51
It’s a amazing app, one of my favorites in fact but after the update going from 2 hints per picture now it’s 2 hints in total it kinda annoying and not only that but the app says I have no hints left and some of the colors are super small. But the price for the yearly subscription is pretty nice, I just can get it. But good work on the app!
Excellent App
by Betsinme on 2020/05/30 20:18
I’ve used several paint by number apps and this is the best one for free that I’ve found . Matter of fact, Inuse it as a hobby for inspiration and to survive this Pandemic . I’m sure most all of you do something to keep your brain ( both sides of it ) stimulated. As a photographer, one from my collection I decided to submit to Flickr . Lo abd behd I woke up to find they awarded an EXPLORE to that particular one. However I do NOT submit as is .. using several Editing tools you can change it .. the perspective, colors, or lack thereof ( black abd white) All in all I highly recommend this app if you enjoy doing paint by numbers . Kudos 👍 You ROCK !!
My favorite pastime!

Saving
by Queeniesusan on 2020/05/29 18:56
I really enjoy this app for the most part, but I don’t finish the entire picture in one sitting. I will work on it over time. My issue comes from when I quite the app for a while and go back later, part of the coloring I had already done has been erased. Now as fun as it is, it isn’t fun to go back and re-color what you just did earlier. It is as if it doesn’t save the last segment that you worked on. I really hope this gets fixed, because it is annoying enough that I am considering uninstalling it.
Ads stick and block app
by Budlink on 2020/05/29 15:08
For the most part, this is great entertainment (some of the choices of colors are pretty weird...) but many times the ads end up freezing and there is no way out - other than restarting my iPad 😢 I would also like a way to cancel the ads after a ‘reasonable’ amount of time (one ad leads into either a repeat of the first ad or into a second... after 18 seconds you realize you are in a loop with no way out...)
Frozen in time
by Meelainee on 2020/05/29 14:58
I’ve really been enjoying this app. My sister got me hooked. Anyway, yesterday, the screen became frozen in an ad. My husband recommended shutting down my iPad. I did that, got back in, and now it is frozen in another ad! So frustrating. I got another paint by number app, but I don’t like it half as much as this one.

I love this app’s variety of colors and pictures BUT once I tap on a picture, I can’t go back to see other choices. The back arrow in the upper right corner freezes the entire game. It’s so frustrating!
Great Covid 19 Stress Relief
by TX Winter Bear on 2020/05/27 23:57
I started play 2weeks before the pandemic. I love it and even counted 734 pictures I had completed as of today. I have installed and deleted several others that I was not enjoying making this my only coloring game. The game started freezing and I deleted and reinstalled it. I did not know it would erase all the ones I had finished. I don’t mind redoing them because I enjoy the app. I would have liked a choice in clearing them since I am trying to do all the pictures that are available. I was considering purchasing to have all the pictures and no ads. Now I am not so sure I want to since it cleared all the pictures and knowing if I have to reinstall the app again it will erase everything each time.
App dis function
by SR72f on 2020/05/27 18:06
I was enjoying this app a lot until it stopped working on me. Every time I want to color a drawing , in the middle of finding the first color, the app closes and my phone goes to turning off like if it died on me and then comes back on and having to put in my code or finger print to reopen my phone. I have other coloring apps that work just fine so it’s not my phone.
Ads
by jmlmuuu on 2020/05/26 21:38
Fix your ads. Can’t even get into the program. AdColony ads won’t shut down.
Wow
by Mags_42 on 2020/05/26 02:51
So intricate, turned out great. Not for the weak of heart. Takes time, but well worth the end result!
Subscription didn’t renew
by Cindy-Omaha on 2020/05/25 09:39
I paid for the unlimited hints at $4.99, but this isn’t working anymore. I don’t know why. This is supposed to renew automatically.
What happened to pictures?
by chesterme on 2020/05/24 23:15
You need to go back to the smaller numbers the larger ones I don’t like, it was easier than the big numbers.
Ads that prevent play
by Do ga on 2020/05/24 16:28
Quicken Loan ads are now preventing me from playing the game. They just linger there - there is no timer, X, or way to close the ad out. C’mon you guys!
Oil painting is a great app.

Paint is my passion
by Cyndi Marie on 2020/05/19 06:00
Absolutely love this game!
I love the new format!!
by Great way to get mail on 2020/05/18 17:39
I used this app for a long, long time. Then I just quit because I was doing other things. Had to download again because it wouldn’t stay on. So now I’m happily surprised with the new way to “paint”. I’ll be using it more now. It’s a great app with lots of great pictures to color. All of my old pictures were lost when I downloaded it again but I’ll just do the favorites again. I recommend this app.
Oil Painting by Number
by Colorado Kayaker (since 2013) on 2020/01/30 04:56
Thank you so much! I love all of your pictures and enjoy deciding which one to do next. I am retired and always busy and can't wait to log on to my iPad to finish one picture and start another one. The colors are beautiful on all of the pictures I have done. I was always concerned about losing my pictures, so I try to remember to save each one in one of my iPad photo albums - just for me to look at. When I save my picture, I am asked if I would like to share in Face Book. All of my high school graduating class follows Face Book. I get so many really nice comments from so many people that I can't read all of them. It really makes me feel good and figure it sends customers your way. I have sent a couple of my pictures to my little 5 year old Granddaughter and Daughter for Thanksgiving and Christmas and they loved them. I hope that was okay and not a problem! Keep up the good work. I know there are so many people that look forward to your pictures and I am on top of the list. Thanks again, it is appreciated! Carol K.N.
Oil Painting by Numbers brought back memories of my youth
by Eddie Quig on 2020/02/01 15:18
I selected the disable hints in the settings but it does do what I thought it would do. If I accidentally touch the hints buttons it will do whatever it is function to do. I don’t know then what disabling the hints buttons should do but it does stop the usage of them. Maybe it wasn’t tested before the put this function in. Downloaded about 2 weeks ago and finished all the free and ones you had to watch a video paintings in about 8 days. Just to let all know you have to watch 3 to 4 videos weather it was free or had to watch a video to paint. This may irritate some. They need to remove the word “a” since in my understanding that would represent “1” and put an “s” at the end of video. Yesterday they increased the amount of colors (24 to about 128) in the paintings which is great, takes longer to paint. The only 2 issues I have is the amount ads to watch, though some are informative, and the amount of space it is using up on my iPad. It puts a logo and no picture of the paintings. Can’t buy an iPad with more memory since I already have 128GB. I don’t want to clear the paint on the ones I have already painted since some have been moved over to premium and would have to purchase a subscription. Because of the ads I am a bit leery to purchase and the ads won’t really go away. But other than that I enjoy the app.
My fave coloring app until...
by kriv70 on 2019/07/12 18:09
Update: The developers replied and said I should update the app, but I had already updated to the latest version when I wrote my review. All my completed images are still gone. Especially don’t like that the colors don’t advance once you finish one, but it’s obvious they want you tapping in the color area more often because the ad is right there. More tapping means more errant taps on the ads. Still like the end results, but the app is not as enjoyable as it was and I’m using it less. This is my favorite coloring app. Just challenging enough to take a while, but not too hard, and a pretty pic at the end. (Although I never liked the obnoxious logo obscuring part of the picture when saving.) But the last update had the app constantly crashing, so I reinstalled and, like others, discovered all my completed pictures lost. Looking through the gallery, some that I had completed before are now premium, some are totally gone. Also, the find and fill hints dropped to 1 each. Hardly ever used those, so whatever. Honestly though, updates that take things away are just frustrating. The premium price is much too high and there are a couple of ads that give you a “close” button but nothing happens when you press it. Still my fave for the end result picture, but disappointed with recent changes. (Also, please stop the pop-up hints! No one needs those after the first two minutes.)
A Really Great App WITHOUT a Need For PREMIUM!!
by Eerawk on 2020/07/03 01:14
Honestly i was skeptical about this app from the ad. I thought premium would be needed to actually enjoy this app, and then... I opened the app and realized it was not! The are TWO new free pictures a day, and only ONE premium, which differs from EVERY OTHER coloring app I tried and have used, (colorfy, sandbox coloring, ect. Keep in mind these apps aren’t necessarily bad) And the TWO FREE pictures AREN'T EVEN BAD! They’re just as good, maybe more so as the one premium. They’re also complex, not some crappy simple picture for a seven year old. Also, not all these pictures are complex either! If you’re looking for complex, there’s plenty. If you’re looking for simple, you got simple! These pictures are really cute and realistic too. I just absolutely adore these pictures, and I keep starting new ones! The developers also care. They respond too the good and bad reviews of the game, and are working on it. You will have to note there are some pictures that need an ad to open, but that’s ok. One ad isn’t bad at all, and as I said, there’s plenty of free ones. Eventually, you will run out of free ones, but this is a new app and they don’t have thousands of pictures like some older apps do. You could also choose to watch ONE add to get FOUR hints, which is great. I just ADORE this app, it’s, it’s amazing. I HIGHLY recommend it!
What happened to the pictures??
by Suzieque29 on 2020/05/12 01:30
Edit to add .....so the new update fixed the opening view of the puzzle with getting rid of the very large numbers it’s still distracting when you enlarge the puzzle and the enlargement goes too far out. Please go back to two versions ago before the large number change. Was waiting for and was excited to see this update but only half the issue was fixed. I guess I’ll continue playing my jigsaw puzzles until it’s fixed or find a new paint by number. Shame because I loved this app I love this app and play it every day for I find it very calming. I would normally give this 4 stars (not 5 due to ads). I just went in and the pictures look different. In light Of this i would give it 1 star. I gave 3 as a compromise. The numbers are too large and take over the photo and when you go to enlarge the photos the numbers get even bigger and there is no stop to enlarging it like before. This is very distracting and makes it no fun or relaxing anymore. PLEASE PLEASE fix this back to how it was yesterday. If this doesn’t change I will have to find a new paint by numbers.
Fun at first, but not now.
by Cheerful2mara on 2019/08/04 17:40
This game has been enjoyable for quite awhile, but I’ve been noticing some of the pictures have an extraordinary number of different colors in it, and most of these only color 1 or 2 spaces each. An example is the picture of three surfboards with a circular, blue background. There are 168 different colors in it. That wouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing if the color differences made some sense, but many of these nonsensical colors also appear to be repeats of colors that were used previously, elsewhere in the picture. Maybe it’s more difficult because my eyesight isn’t the greatest, and even though hunting and finding the very tiny dots of color is OK when there are only a few of them, having to spend a lot of time finding them causes eye strain that’s really uncomfortable. There have been other pictures, such as the horse with the beige colored eye, that are equally distracting and, since there’s no way to determine that prior to getting started on a particular painting, this app isn’t fun anymore. Again, I loved this app for a long time, but I’ll be deleting it.
App is great! Must download!!!!
by the username of KittenCx on 2019/09/29 16:04
When I first saw this app I thought that it would be like; color by number, unicorn coloring etc. But when I installed the app it was better than I though! I loved how all the paintings were complicated and honestly I think this app should have 5 stars. But I do have some suggestions; first please take down that ‘click the next color’ button. Or please make it in settings so that I can turn it off. The button always gets on my nerves when I don’t click it first! Also the only simpler pictures are the baby ones. I’m just wondering if maybe you could make a few more but in a different category. Thank you for listening. I love this app and it’s so much fun! This app also doesn’t only have around 15 out of 200 ( not actual numbers just metaphor) pictures that you can actually do without V.I.P. Thanks for reading! :)
I loved this app...
by Liscat6 on 2019/07/06 19:03
I was addicted; pictures are beautiful when completed and it is relaxing, thoroughly enjoyable despite the ads in the free version but, apparently unstable. I’m not sure if due to an update or bug crash, etc. but, occasionally the app would freeze, locking the screen upon picture completion ; then, just wouldn’t open a all. I deleted then reinstalled, knowing that I’d lose all that I’d done but, the problems continue, plus some. I’m happy that this happened prior to purchasing the full app. I’ll save my money and get over my disappointment! The developer contacted me to report that the problem has been found and fixed so I’ve reinstalled the app with trust. Truth is that I missed it. Its slightly different now in that the next color doesn’t auto select as before, you must manually select, which is fine. Thank you for the response! 🙂
Very good game
by Legomackley on 2020/09/13 15:52
Over the pandemic I got into doing paint by numbers and when I wasn’t at home I would wish I was home to do my paint by number. So I downloaded this app and I couldn’t stop playing it. It’s one of those games that if you enjoy it you enjoy and if you don’t you don’t, and what I mean about that is there is no problem with that app that will make you not enjoy it. There are barely any ads. The pictures are free, or at least I haven’t seen one that wasn’t free. The only problem I noticed is about the hints and helping features. Where they’re located is right by the painting and it is very easy to accidentally use one. I suggest that you should put a feature were if you click it you get asked “are you sure you want to use this feature”. Other than that this is a really fun addictive game.
I was Hopeful
by Krisct on 2019/04/23 00:05
This app had a lot of good reviews so I was hopeful. But it did not take long for that feeling to fade. I started looking through all of the pictures and noticed most of them had little icons in the corner. Not knowing what they were, I clicked on the picture to find out. One of them told me I had to watch an ad to color those pictures. The other one told me they were for "premium" members and I can join the club for $20 a week! That's crazy! $20 a week! I continued on trying to find a picture to try. Now I really, really like dolphins. And I found one but I was really crushed to find out it was for the premium club members only. Just CRUSHED!! So I pick a picture to try out. One that wasn't premium or required me to watch an ad. Guess what I was greeted with? An ad that I had to watch! But I picked one that didn't require me to watch an ad! What the heck! What's the point of blocking some of the good pictures unless I watch an ad if you're forced to watch one anyway?! I think I'm going to remove this app.
One of my favorite color by number apps
by Sassi18 on 2019/08/25 14:51
This is one of my favorite Color By Number apps but I do have a couple of complaints. My first complaint is the number of very pastel colors used in a lot of the pictures. I realize I’m a senior citizen and maybe that’s part of the problem but when I’m looking for a piece that needs colored but I find one and it’s a pastel I’ve already filled, it’s very frustrating searching for the pieces that are left. My second complaint is that so many of the colors look like they’re exactly the same. Are the people that create these pictures paid by the number of colors the picture has? Because often, it seems several of the colors could be combined into one. I’m not an artist so maybe there is a difference but to one of the average, they’re the same.
I love this game. But needs something new...
by Garyisboss on 2019/08/22 20:12
This game is great for passing by time or something to do if you are really bored. One major problem is that you need to have internet to be able to paint any of the pictures. As soon as you fill one spot in, you can use it where you please (plain, outside, etc...) I do think the developers need to a feature as to where you can color your own photos. As in choosing a photo from your camera roll, having the app split it up into different colors, and you can decide the difficulty. AKA, be more detailed with more colors, or less detailed with less colors. And then you can paint away. I would love this feature. Other than that, great game. I do recommend this game to others. Also I’ve noticed a lot of reviews about ads. Just turn on airplane mode when playing. It saves battery and disables ads.
Awesome!
by DkWinter11 on 2019/04/10 17:53
This color/paint by number is fabulous! What I like about this app compared to others is that there are actual color schemes for each picture. 90% of the time, other apps use all the colors of the rainbow in one picture. This app offers Autumn tones, Spring tones, marine tones, etc. The finished pictures are works of art....very adult. I saw a review concerned with moving the picture to color better. I found this to be true using my fingers, but not much of an issue if using my Apple pen or other screen pen. Happy I purchased the subscription for hours of relaxing enjoyment. Update: I like to not have to zoom in too far to find the right spaces to color so I can see the picture develop as I go. So thank you for showing the active spaces as a checkerboard to find them easier!
Wish Pictures could be saved across devices
by rollinghedgehogs on 2020/08/11 04:16
First of all, I really enjoy this app and all the features it includes. It’s become a regular part of my day and is great for taking a break and de stressing. The app works well and is intuitive and easy to use on a phone though it is a little bit of a battery sucker (at least for my phone) My biggest issue is simply that there doesn’t appear to be a way for your pictures to be saved so they can travel from device to device. For example, if I were to get a new phone and resownload this app, all my progress would be lost. Perhaps this is because I don’t have a subscription? I’m not sure, but it would be nice if you could log in using Facebook or email so that the pictures you already completed would be saved across multiple devices.
Beautiful art, system could be better
by Sten2198 on 2019/06/14 12:42
Update: did the free 3 day trial and works much smoother on moving around the screen, so it must be their ads on screen that make it not as easy to use. If the cost was less to go ad free I would consider it, but it is way too overpriced as it is now in my opinion. The pictures themselves are great, with a great selection of free choices. The VIP pricing is ridiculous - a one time fee of $39 would be high, a monthly fee of that price is way too expensive. I don’t love the way that everything appears gray until you zoom way in, it makes it harder to find the selected color spots for no reason. I also get frustrated that it changes the color of the areas you touch that aren’t the color you use. All this does is make zooming in and moving around the pictures unnecessarily difficult. All in all, a good product that with a few tweaks could be great.
Finally, something worth downloading.
by Alle711 on 2019/10/17 07:04
“Adult coloring” ok, I admit, used to love to break out the crayons/colored pencils when younger but I prefer my time spent on something a little more challenging than a black light poster with a dozen colored markers or my granddaughter’s rag paper coloring books. I like a finished picture that resembles a painting or a thousand plus piece jigsaw puzzle. This isn’t a coloring book. Pictures are vibrant. Color pallet looks more like walking into a high end paint store instead of a box of cheap crayons. Subjects are variable from wildlife to portraits, landscapes to still life. And from photo image to classic art styles similar to Monet or Warhol. And free vs paid... there is more than enough free art work to keep one busy with 3+ new pictures released every day. Video ads are only when you open app up and when you start a new picture. Banner ad is small across bottom. Paid gets access to some beautiful art but I don’t feel frustrated or cheated by the free version like I have with many other apps. Only thing I would like to see changed. Numbers for colors remain the same font size when zoomed. It would be nice if they got a little bigger.

Update to my previous review
by Lisa Bateman on 2019/04/07 06:16
I think I reviewed this previously but can’t find it. Anyway, I’ve decided to update my old review because now that I’ve used it a while, I find I like it better than all other paint by numbers. Previously, I stated that it was hard to tell the shaded area for the number and color you’re working on from all the others. It shows up a lot better if you make the screen bigger and focused in more. Which I was wanting to do it without doing that but that would defeat the purpose of it being challenging I guess. And now that I think about how much fun it is, the price isn’t bad for the yearly subscription. I’m just wondering if I would do more than was available at a time then lol.
Who programmed this thing?
by t3rm!n8r29 on 2019/12/04 06:57
The gameplay itself is fun, but the experience is ruined by 2 big things. 1. I have never seen an app drain my battery as fast as this one does. This tells me that the developers are probably using some horribly inefficient toolkits to build the software 2. There are far too many interactive ads. And after watching the ads, every time you start playing, this annoying flying envelope covers the right side of the screen offering the ability to pay to eliminate ads. That stupid envelope is more annoying than the ads because you can’t swipe it away and it gets in the way of gameplay, and I can promise the developers that it makes me want to uninstall the app rather than pay. And get real—who in their right mind is going to pay 10 bucks a week for this? A one time purchase I might consider, but a recurring subscription is ludicrous.
Used to be a great app!
by IamATimeTraveler on 2019/07/07 00:55
I have completed almost 600 paintings and loved the app...then you had to include the useless, pointless FB option (I stopped using FB a long time a go) and change the dynamic of the app with an annoying reminder to choose a color that I wish was an option to disable. I have lost all of the hundreds of completed paintings as your app did not work any longer post FB integration update! The only thing left to do was to uninstall the app, then reinstall...that’s why I gave it only three instead of five stars. I hate FB or others (Google, Twitter...) who collect every digital bit of information and sale it to the highest bidder! By the way, your app crashed on my 12.9 iPad Pro.
Great app. Need NEW content. Done all pictures
by designgirls2 on 2020/04/09 14:43
I got this app for my mom who is not a person who uses electronics. She is not well and has spent hours on my iPad everyday with it. We’ve tried other apps and they don’t even compare as far as artistic quality, color and ease of use. Being artists we appreciate the high quality of the art. She has done over 1200 pictures pretty much every one in the app. Despite the glowing comments she has been frustrated lately with the lack of new art work and the quality of the dailies. The “new” content isn’t new and the childish pictures are not of interest to her. She feels like she has exhausted this app and actually really frustrated. We’ve looked at other apps again but she just wants his app to have more content. Thank you for making a great app. Keep up the good work!
A great app
by HousesGalore on 2019/08/27 16:10
I've really enjoyed this app. It's relaxing and easy to use. However, after the last update is now missing an important feature. Previously, when you completed a color the next color would automatically be highlighted and show gray in the picture. Now, you have to manually click on the next color to make it show gray in the picture. Please fix this so that is automatic again. I find myself scrolling through the picture looking for more of the color I was working on only to find it's completed and I need to manually select the next color. It's a waste of time not to have it automatically to the next color. Thank you.
Intrusive ads ruin this app
by Alexc823 on 2019/08/07 23:23
This app is pretty fun and has some good pictures. However, the experience is ruined by the intrusive ads. An ad plays every single time you enter the app, even if you only exited for a few seconds to check a text. There are banner ads that sometimes randomly expand to take up half the screen while you’re playing, and there’s no way to minimize them besides closing out of the app. If you’re listening to music or podcasts while you color, this app will turn off your sound even when it doesn’t have an ad with audio playing. I totally understand that ads are how they make money, but they shouldn’t ruin the experience. Also, the cost for premium membership to get rid of ads is outrageous...$10 per week?! Finally, this app drains my phone battery like no other. Probably because of all the ads.
Love this app
by KimMarcAndre on 2019/08/02 18:28
I really think that this app is exceptional. Good for the developers of this app. I’m unfortunately unable to afford the paid version, however if you don’t mind watching an ad to unlock a picture to do it’s wonderful. I find that time goes by very quickly. The pictures are absolutely stunning. If you can afford to pay for the subscription, I’d encourage you to do so. If you’re unable there’s still plenty of beautiful pictures for you to do. They are exceptional, not like some of the other apps. I applaud the creators of this app, and again I urge you to get this app I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do. Thank you.
Fix Fix Fix
by Gocoastl on 2019/09/30 11:30
Alright, I am a weekly subscriber and began using the app with an iphone xs max. I got the new iphone 11 pro, transferred my apps and information over with almost no issues. After data transfer to new phone, my previously completed pictures (and current pictures in progress) showed up fine but i no longer received the facebook messenger pictures. So i deleted the app in order re-install it hoping that i could get the facebook messenger to reset and begin sending me pictures again. Sadly, when i booted up the app, i hit restore purchase option and the app said it did restore the purchase, BUT ALL THE PICTURES I HAVE PAINTED SINCE JULY HAVE DISAPPEARED ALONG WITH MY CURRENT ONES IN PROGRESS. There is no specific option to “log in” and now nothing i have done is apparently saved and here i am paying ridiculous $4 per week for this foolishness. If this nonsense can’t be fixed i want my money back.
Beautiful pictures
by Kim G J on 2019/06/17 15:00
I actually paid the $40 a year subscription fee because I wanted to color as many pictures as I could. They truly are beautiful. I did this when each picture had around 24 colors. They updated the app and now most pictures have over 100 colors. This puts such a strain on my eyes, that I usually only color 1 picture a day now. I know that I can use the magnifying tool or the other tool that paints every color of a certain number, but that defeats the purpose to me. I would appreciate a few more pictures with less colors. That way I might actually be able to color a few more pictures a day instead of just 1. Not sure if I will renew my subscription now.
Love this app!
by Azkate95 on 2020/04/07 18:07
I love this app and purchased the annual subscription - well worth it. I have a couple of suggestions: there should be more than 2 new pictures a day for subscribers; once you finish a color, the next color should automatically be highlighted (I can’t tell you how many times I finished a color not realizing it and I am still looking for more when it’s actually waiting for me to pick another color ☺️) and last suggestion is to allow a choice of colors for the shaded areas representing the current chosen color, oftentimes the gray is just too hard to see. Thanks for listening 😁
Stopped working
by Loivia on 2019/07/04 16:09
I’ve had this app for a while and I’ve always enjoyed it. It’s a good pastime, although each piece is always intricate. There’s a membership necessity for half of the pictures and when you run out of freebies, you’re just stuck. No ads to get a pic, nothing. Got kinda annoying, but still was a great app. That was until recently. I jumped into the app a day or two ago and it showed the first entry screen of the logo, and loaded. And loaded. And loaded some more. And then, it kicked me back to the home screen. None of my other apps are having this issue. This might be a bug? I restarted my phone and it didn’t help. Sadly, because of this issue, I plan on deleting the app from my phone due to lack of ability to use it, and I hope that they fix that bug in the future.
Love this app! But want the old version back
by mmmkiijklKloihuyffdszq on 2019/07/04 14:37
I love this coloring app! This is my go to now out of all the other coloring apps I have. The detail in the pics with the different shades of colors make the end product breathtaking. However, I just updated the app and the new version took away the automatic switch to the next color when you finish the previous one. 😢 That was one of my favorite aspects of this app compared to the others. I keep looking for my next piece but don’t even have a color picked so it’s for nothing. It will eventually tell you to pick a color but still...I want my old version back!
Two steps forward, one step back
by JuanitaMM1 on 2019/07/12 17:23
Really like these pictures—they are beautiful! I was impressed how nice they were, with 24 or fewer colors, then suddenly there are often over 100, which seemed to me like overkill. I was going to suggest that the selected color cell be patterned instead of a solid grey, when bam! That feature was added! But the numbers don’t get any bigger when expanded, but at least they are a contrasting color, which helps. I also really liked that the next color got selected automatically, then that was taken away. Manual selection was already possible, so why?
Change Highlighted Color
by AuburnDitzy on 2020/04/29 23:22
I really enjoy painting with this app and the pictures are beautiful. The only thing that would make it a greater app would be being able to change the highlighted color from gray and white to a more standout color. One of the apps I also use for oil painting allows me to change the highlighted area to one of six colors that are much easier to see. I can select yellow, green, blue or red checked or a red or blue solid color. Would it be possible to get these highlighted colors with this app? I use this App a lot. I just checked my statistics and I’ve colored 1069 pictures!
Amazing in every way.
by Kalothekalico on 2019/10/04 11:52
I’m an App reviewer by hobby and I stumbled across this app, saw the reviews and decided to download it. Immediately I fell in love with every picture! The simple design of the app, the calendar, the free to membership ratio! UGH I love it. Starting with coloring the pictures are amazing and most of them are free! When coloring it’s super smooth and easy navigation with refreshed hints every picture. I have respect for this app because of the details that went into every picture. The saving is nice, experienced no problems and no critique. The membership seems perfectly balanced as well. Just a really great app so 11/10. -Kall
Nice Paintings But A Few Things I Don’t Care For
by BGs_Fan on 2020/04/12 15:47
Although I see it is disclosed, I don’t think it’s fair to lose the free trial as soon as you subscribe. I paid for the weekly rate and thought that would give me two weeks to try but it doesn’t. There also doesn’t seem to be much help; like for example I was trying to find out if there is an undo button in case you color the wrong section and couldn’t find an answer to that question. Help file is very lean. Finally I would prefer an app that allow you to control the pressure/application of the paint and you just tap on this one to fill the areas. Again not a bad app, just not for me.
Awesome

I do not usually write reviews but this one is worthy.....I sit on my recliner to watch TV and if I done have a cat or dog on my lap I need something to do with my hands....this is very relaxing. And the pictures or beautiful....I have had one other painting app. It pulled me in and then got to a point where I had to pay....I am not going to pay to use an app..... The colors are beautiful....I like that I can paint what ever part I want either by number or by section....I cannot say enough about this app....if you are unsure just down load it if you don’t like it unsubscribe....I figure most people will not unsubscribe
30 hours in, this is how I feel. :)
by lexibaby on 2019/07/31 21:47
I really like the app. I would give it five stars if not for three small things that bug me. (I don’t expect them to fix all three, but I can always hope). 1. I wish ad-free was available as a one-time purchase as well, not just as part of the subscription. 2. I wish the travel and landscape pictures had captions or some sort of location tag, because I’d love to go to some of these places. 3. The buttons with the bucket and the magnifying glass are in slightly bad spots (but this might be due to either my old iPad or the ad underneath the buttons) which makes me accidentally hit them way too often.
Best coloring app and it’s working again
by J201299 on 2020/01/30 23:18
I love the final results from this app and the picture selection is great. Latest release (1.4) is very nice too. Thx. January 2020 release has partially broken the app. Developers did another release but I view that the app is still broken when only one of three new pictures per day is actually accessible to paint. Very frustrating. I’ve lowered my rating to one star. Thanks Veraxen folks! That must have been a sneaky bug but you got it. As best as I can tell, the pictures that were “freezing” are back and functioning. Thx for the hard work.
Beautiful Pictures, BUT
by Ruthie52 on 2019/05/11 17:36
#1. I’m giving this app 3 stars because of the fact that you can only upgrade the app if you’re willing to pay so much money a week, monthly or yearly. Now I’m one that that will pay 5to 6 bucks, possibly 10 bucks for a 1 time fee for an app. But I can promise I will never ever pay monthly to color a picture on my phone. Honey bottom line is, if I can’t eat it I won’t pay it! #2. Please get rid of the color change if I hit the wrong number or give me the option to not use it. #3. I would also like to be able to not see a pop up when I’ve found all of one number that’s says pick a number. Now if all the above was fixed I would definitely give it 5 ⭐️.
Love
by ZombieB4coffee on 2020/02/09 01:45
As I lay here on day 3 of the flu, I thought it was time I sent in a review to say how much I enjoy this app. It’s great for winding down after work. My favorite pictures are the colorful ones, especially when color is used in unexpected ways, and pictures of food. I wish there was a way to remove pictures from the “In progress” section because it put pictures in there that I touched while scrolling and probably won’t complete. Also, would like the option to remove ones I’ve started and don’t like. I really don’t want to see them either.
Cool app, missing one important feature
by Slidyswinger on 2020/08/12 17:10
The one thing holding me back from liking this app is the inability to upload your own photos. Every other color by number app I use allows it. This is the best coloring app of them all, but I don’t use it because I want to use my own pictures. If that ability was in the app, I would only use this app. And it isn’t that the photos they provide aren’t cool, it’s just that some days I’m in the mood to color something more personal, like a photo of my dog or a landscape photo I’ve taken. Makes it so much more fun when the photo means something to you. If you added this feature I would subscribe to the app and use it every day.
Enjoying this app!
by Elaine9000 on 2020/07/28 07:07
You will not be bored with this app! There are so many oil paintings to choose from (e.g., nature, architecture, animals, beaches, still life, fruit, vegetables and so much more) and the color pallets are vibrant and beautiful! I can spend hours on coloring different oil paintings because it relaxes me and it’s fun to do. I love the light houses and beach scenes. It’s hard to put down so be prepared for that. If you have an iPad and iPad pencil it is even better. There are a few ads after you complete a painting but they are very short. The developers did a great job with this app. Thank you!!
Overbearing Ads
by ajssmom on 2020/03/16 00:28
Really enjoyable while working on a picture, but the ad scheme is completely overbearing. If you even pause to do anything and the screen locks, you will have to watch another ad just to be able to even continue the picture. Ads when you complete and another ad when you select next picture. Ads everywhere. Would be fine with paying once just to remove ads but only subscription is an option. Outside of ads, runs smooth and beautiful pictures. Can upload to Facebook on completion or you can find your completed pictures under My Collection and save to photos if you want.
The Greatest App Ever!!
by Miss_Jean on 2019/04/11 18:58
This is now my favorite go to app! I use to use Recolor, which was amazing in itself. But when I found that this app was oil painting, that was all it took! The pics are absolutely beautiful. The coloring apps can not even begin to compare!! Now, since you have changed the spaces to color to a plaid, they are so much easier to see. I was having trouble with some of the grays and greens with the coloring spaces being just a darker shade of gray. I would always miss at least one, lol. Kudos guys!! I love what you have brought to my world!! Thank you♥️♥️♥️♥️
I love this app
by JulieKhush on 2019/09/19 14:17
I do love this app and I love the amount of access I have in the free version. Yes I would like the nice pictures in the paid version too but oh well. I do have a few suggestions though - 1. If paint baskets are not used in a picture can you please roll them over so it can be used in the next one? 2. Can we display some indicator against each number color to indicate how many of those occurrences we have? So if my picture has colors from 1-200 there are several shades which only have one occurrence of it. Can I know how many occurrences for each color so I can knock out the single ones or the super busy ones first as I desire??? Please please
Beautiful Pictures, Generous with Free Content
by Luca's Lady on 2019/11/14 20:02
I love this app. The pictures are gorgeous, and they’re constantly adding new ones, even at the free level. There’s a subscription level, which is pricey, but the free selection is high-quality and extensive. There are ads, but they’re not intrusive. I’m happy to watch them because they don’t interrupt my session, and they help support the creators. Usually they show up before I start a painting session. Highly recommended for anyone who loves beautiful artwork and likes painting by numbers.
Loved it...at first
by JazzLvr15 on 2019/05/25 17:54
This app has beautiful artwork that I really enjoy watching develop as I add color. In the beginning it was a pleasant experience just relaxing and filling in the numbers to see what artwork would emerge. But then, the numbered shapes began getting smaller, more numerous and more obscure and difficult to find causing my relaxing chill to become more of an annoying ‘challenge’. After 8 hours of attending to ‘work fires’ and staff problems the last thing I want is a game that keeps me even slightly on edge, and if I did it wouldn’t be a paint by number app. I’m dissatisfied and disappointed there is not an option to stay in the no-stress zone using this app.
Changes
by molliverwrites on 2020/06/08 15:09
I have loved this game for a long time, however for the last six months it has continually been updated to remove things. First there were four hints and two buckets, then down to two hints and one bucket. Now if these ran out you would need to watch ads. Then the pictures slowly started to change from beautiful artwork to ones without so many colors. I haven’t seen one over 100 in ages. Then they took away all hints and buckets without watching an ad. This is in addition to any you watch to get a picture or that play upon opening. If this continues to happen, I will no longer be recommending this app to other people and possibly delete it.
Should be Relaxing but ...
by The34thwarrior on 2020/01/15 21:07
While this app has the potential to be very relaxing and fun, it is also very frustrating!!! When I was younger, I’m 73, paint by number was fun and relaxing, this app could be but the way it’s setup makes that hard. On paint by number I grew up with you had a canvas board with an outline of the picture with numbers in sections. NO grey picture to color. This app uses a grey indicator to show where the colors go but, the grey of the picture can make it extremely difficult for these old eyes of mine to see where the indicator is, so I suggest the developer LOSE that grey and just have a white background with outlines and numbers
Revised review-I am really enjoying this app
by Queueman on 2020/05/17 01:36
I originally rated it lower because of ads, but they really are not that bad. I am enjoying the app quite a bit. Right now there is so much tension and uncertainty in the word that this helps me unwind and, at least momentarily, ignore all the turmoil. I find it very relaxing and quite addictive. The paintings are wonderful and complex. It is a bit like painting and a bit like a jigsaw puzzle. Yeah, the ads are still there, but I have learned to coexist with them. I wish real life could be so accommodating.
great app, but glitches
by jiyatheperson on 2020/04/09 20:14
ok this is a cool app! there is so many cool options to color, but i wish they had a wider variety. there are LOTs off ads all the time, so i wish they could cut it down a little. there e one glitch that really bothers me that they didn’t fix in the update. whenever i exit the game after playing, then when i come back, it deletes most of my past work and i have to start over again!! it really annoys me, but that’s the only main issue i came across while using the app. it’s still a great app, and it gets you really addicted!!

Number back ground gray
by ruthtony on 2020/09/17 13:10
You need to change the high lit color from gray to a checked bright color. I did one picture and had such a headache that I could not do another. I like everything else.
Battery Zapper
by Photonut70 on 2020/09/16 19:21
This app uses an unbelievable amount of battery power. 25% battery usage for two paintings. I have to keep a power plug in if I use it.
Perfect app but
by Pinkdahlia25 on 2020/09/16 12:30
This would be 5 stars but I am not paying $40 a year to get rid of the ads. I am on a fixed income and that’s a ridiculous amount for coloring by numbers
Just Don’t do it
by Kashlian on 2020/09/16 08:35
they changed it... now you HAVE TO consent to be ad tracked while you surf the web ... OR PAY... A program I have enjoyed since 2012 ... I have to delete... too bad they got greedy, but No way do I allow any anonymous company to track me... thats a deal breaker every time, 😟 oh well plenty of others like this ... who respect my privacy to choose from ... bye bye karen
App suddenly not working
by MontessoriChild on 2020/09/16 05:24
Updated app and now it’s frozen on the first screen. I wait and wait and nothing loads. Tried restarting app but it doesn’t help.
Very good game
by Legomackley on 2020/09/13 15:52
Over the pandemic I got into doing paint by numbers and when I wasn’t at home I would wish I was home to do my paint by number. So I downloaded this app and I couldn’t stop playing it. It’s one of those games that if you enjoy it you enjoy and if you don’t you don’t, and what I mean about that is there is no problem with that app that will make you not enjoy it. There are barely any ads. The pictures are free, or at least I haven’t seen one that wasn’t free. The only problem I noticed is about the hints and helping features. Where they’re located is right by the painting and it is very easy to accidentally use one. I suggest that you should put a feature were if you click it you get asked “are you sure you want to use this feature”. Other than that this is a really fun addictive game.

Preview of finished picture
by jnull91 on 2020/09/08 18:29
I may be the only one, but I would really like to see the finished picture Before I start it. This is like buying a jigsaw puzzle that does not have a picture on the box. But, I DO like the app.
3 stars

Please fix
by mimi1017 on 2020/09/02 17:31
Please fix what you supposedly fixed. Can’t even play anymore!!!!!! I have painted over 900 pictures. This is all I do. Now something is seriously wrong. Keeps crashing, logging out. I get halfway through a pic and it kicks me out. If it comes back on I have to restart pic all over again. What did you do?????
Oil Painting by number
by gypsyjudy on 2020/08/26 03:31
I have loved painting every picture I have painted and have done between 15 and 20 since my daughter/in-law introduced me to the app. That is, until the last one and as hard as I have looked and as many times as I have looked, I can’t get #61 to clear. There are no white spots anywhere!! What do I do? It’s very frustrating not to be able to say it’s complete!! Update-I listened to a video and used a bucket. It cleared it, but I still don’t know where the paint went. I’m very forgiving-already started another picture! 😍❤️
Grey pixels
by Pamela Corley on 2020/08/24 00:00
I have stopped using this app until you change the pixels from grey to a color that is easier to see up against the grey picture
Malware Issue
by tttuuufff on 2020/08/23 20:56
Absolutely love this app! I don’t think I’ve enjoyed an app as much as this one. Unfortunately I had to delete it. I constantly receive notifications from my spamware blocker which is, I’m assuming from all the ads - which I never click on. I don’t care about the ads. But I don’t understand why this is the first app I’ve downloaded that has done this. It is extremely annoying and I have no choice but to delete it.

I love the colors and pictures; however, I was doing them all in landscape mode and now the app won’t allow the landscape mode only vertical. Is there a way to fix this?
Oil painting by number
by yes#25 on 2020/08/18 14:04
The app really needs to have more colorful paintings. So many of the dailies are very colorless. I will stop using if I can’t find colorful choices. There are very few Colorful” in that category, and they don’t have enough.
Your no ad icon
by Bellasings on 2020/08/18 06:39
I can see that you don’t want to read your bad reviews you only want people to rave about your site. I pay good money to have beautiful pictures and in the beginning was OK now it’s like you’re just trying to pull the wool over people’s eyes. You keep putting the same darn pictures back on there and you think we won’t notice it wrong I’m done with you crooks

Can you make it to where you can take a picture of yourself and color it?
Cool app, missing one important feature

If that ability was in the app, I would only use this app. And it isn’t that the photos they provide aren’t cool, it’s just that some days I’m in the mood to color something more personal, like a photo of my dog or a landscape photo I’ve taken. Makes it so much more fun when the photo means something to you. If you added this feature I would subscribe to the app and use it every day.
Wish Pictures could be saved across devices
by rollinghedgehogs on 2020/08/11 04:16
First of all, I really enjoy this app and all the features it includes. It’s become a regular part of my day and is great for taking a break and de stressing. The app works well and is intuitive and easy to use on a phone though it is a little bit of a battery sucker (at least for my phone) My biggest issue is simply that there doesn’t appear to be a way for your pictures to be saved so they can travel from device to device. For example, if I were to get a new phone and resownload this app, all my progress would be lost. Perhaps this is because I don’t have a subscription? I’m not sure, but it would be nice if you could log in using Facebook or email so that the pictures you already completed would be saved across multiple devices.
Love the App
by LindsayZ on 2020/08/06 22:10
The best coloring app in the App Store. There is one major problem....you need to allow landscape coloring again. It is very uncomfortable coloring in portrait. Please change it back to landscape!!!!!

No longer able to use
by Kelleylynn042 on 2020/08/01 15:58
I paid for the whole year but now that I can’t clear out the grey background I can’t use as my old eyes aren’t what they used to be This is too bad as I loved this app prior to the last update. This ended up not being what I paid for.
Oil Painting Fantasy
by Photogirl411 on 2020/07/31 17:46
Love this app. I enjoy the challenge of finishing some of the most intricate pictures. Passes lots of time during this pandemic. Just wish it wasn’t so expensive for VIP. Keep up the good work👍🏼👍🏼
Return the option to clear grey areas
by Ken955 on 2020/07/31 16:45
The latest change removing the ability to remove the grey from fields by tapping them has made the app nearly impossible to use. With a minor visual impairment, I would go through the picturing tapping each grey area, turning it white (or a lighter shade of the color selected) be fore starting to color. Without this ability it is very difficult to see the grey highlight against the dark grey fields. Please return this feature, or make it an option to change fields or remove the entire greyscale image
Beautiful pictures

I really like this app. But all of sudden it does not open up.
by Verna Mae on 2020/07/30 00:02
What needs to be done so I can continue coloring on this app?
Tired of old pictures
by Silly Jilly me on 2020/07/29 05:53
I like this app. It is my favorite coloring app, but they keep recycling through old pictures instead of adding new pictures as a bonus. Almost every week the bonus picture is one that I have already colored.
Enjoying this app!

Scary Advertisements
by LG1369 on 2020/07/28 05:49
The ads shown are not kid friendly. I just watched one where a wife gets so annoyed with her husband/boyfriend that she kills him.
Colors
by Inch1962 on 2020/07/27 01:53
I find it hard to get the colors up when I tap on them. Seems lot of times it take 3-4 taps to get colors to pop up. Besides this, I like the App. It is nice to have the challenge compared to other Apps.
Landscape not working
by Lifelong colored on 2020/07/26 19:30
I “upgraded” my iPad to a newer one my one year and now this app won’t work in landscape mode. The opening display of the app is landscape, but then it changes to portrait mode and I don’t know how to switch it back. Any ideas?
One flaw...and it’s not about money
by nearriver on 2020/07/24 00:32
I love the pictures on this app! I’ve had it for about a year now. I’ve never had an issue until now. Recently when I have to minimize the app, it now sort of “closes” itself, brings you back to the main screen, AND erases work you did prior to minimizing. I can deal with re-loading a picture, but undoing what I’ve already colored in is really starting to get on my nerves! Please fix this and I’ll happily continue using this app and referring it to friends.
I love it.
by AdkinsJay on 2020/07/23 04:26
I really enjoy this app, thou I would enjoy it more if there was an easier way to add pictures to my collection without having to tap on the picture and fill in one part before leaving and repeating it. Other wise I Love all the pictures ^^
TOO MANY BUGS!!
by MollyMax0841 on 2020/07/19 17:10

I loved it until you took away horizontal mode
by MojoCMO on 2020/07/14 13:03

This app is really good but there is a lot of adds for instance I had to watch an add to get a picture put then after that add I had to watch an other add also sometimes it gets a little stressful when you are trying to find the piece you are looking for.

Seems to have got easier

Not sure why but the highlighted color seems to have got darker and the areas larger making it much easier. I preferred it when it was more of a challenge.
Now starting to mess up
by Aokmom on 2020/07/09 02:17
I have been using this app for a while now. It worked very well at first and I really enjoy it, I do the painting for the day everyday. But now it is starting to mess up since they changed it to where the numbers stay on the bottom instead of disappearing. Now to get out of the app I have to close the app completely so I have to restart my I pad after every pic. Also they don’t complete and stay in the in progress stack. I would have sent this to the app creators but I can’t find how to do that.
Endless ads
by gamejess on 2020/07/08 22:37
For most paintings, colors are too dark and gloomy. And you have to close endless ads
By number
by dpsmiley on 2020/07/07 10:41
Love the app, I just wish they would give you the paint by number & an ability to choose your own colors.
READ PLZ!

Omg me and my sister love this app! One suggestion we have is that you can either do a pic you have take a pic and have it turn into a picture you can do

Oil painting

I love this oil painting app. This is the second year I have paid for the subscription. What has happened to the bonus paintings that I would normally get for holidays. I received the new paintings for Mother’s Day, I didn’t get fathers day nor the Fourth of July. I’m only receiving 3 paintings a day. Please reply!
So enjoy this app.....but

Daily Oil Painting picture for July 2
by Gee728 on 2020/07/03 05:21
The daily picture for July 2 cannot be completed. It is the picture of a beautiful sunset. The very last piece #58 turns gray when you tap the last color but doesn’t fill in. Can this be corrected without having to paint it again? Otherwise, I love everything about this app!! It is satisfying, peaceful, and a major stress reliever in these trying times in our country. So a big THANK YOU to all who keep this app running so smoothly!!!

This app promises much...DOESN’T DELIVER
by pintrestisajoke on 2020/07/03 02:45
Too many bugs. Then they take away ALL HINTS! They’re playing footsie! My guess is, either you succumb to their PRICE GAUGING “PREMIUM” which has no ads & plenty of hints...or you GET NOTHING AT ALL OF ANY VALUE FOR FREE! Don’t waste your breath with this app. It’s completely not worth it. No better than any other online coloring book.
A Really Great App WITHOUT a Need For PREMIUM!!
by Eerawk on 2020/07/03 01:14
Honestly i was skeptical about this app from the ad. I thought premium would be needed to actually enjoy this app, and then... I opened the app and realized it was not! The are TWO new free pictures a day, and only ONE premium, which differs from EVERY OTHER coloring app I tried and have used, (colorfy, sandbox coloring, ect. Keep in mind these apps aren’t necessarily bad) And the TWO FREE pictures AREN'T EVEN BAD! They’re just as good, maybe more so as the one premium. They’re also complex, not some crappy simple picture for a seven year old. Also, not all these pictures are complex either! If you’re looking for complex, there’s plenty. If you’re looking for simple, you got simple! These pictures are really cute and realistic too. I just absolutely adore these pictures, and I keep starting new ones! The developers also care. They respond too the good and bad reviews of the game, and are working on it. You will have to note there are some pictures that need an ad to open, but that’s ok. One ad isn’t bad at all, and as I said, there’s plenty of free ones. Eventually, you will run out of free ones, but this is a new app and they don’t have thousands of pictures like some older apps do. You could also choose to watch ONE add to get FOUR hints, which is great. I just ADORE this app, it’s, it’s amazing. I HIGHLY recommend it!

Good app but does save its state well
by feitelberg on 2020/06/28 20:33
If you don’t complete a picture you really can’t save your progress and you have to start over; this annoys me no end but the app often hangs when saving at the end of your work.
Offline Options!
by Ja9Legge on 2020/06/28 16:01
I love this app, and it keeps me busy when I wanted to keep my mind off some certain things. I really wish there is available offline/download colorings for traveling where there isn’t wifi available. It would be great if the option becomes available!
Ads have stopped working
by TerriP1212 on 2020/06/23 19:22
I’ve had this app for a good while now and had a fairly enjoyable go of it, but the recent bug of ads playing and no clues coming afterwards has me to the point of removing the app entirely. The recent inundation of quickly closable ads is one thing, but making someone watch an ad for a reward that is never awarded is quite another.
Oil painting has too many comercials
by Alkgdsdghljgds on 2020/06/22 04:51
I used to enjoy the app for passing the time and watching the picture develop. But lately it is impossible to use the app. It has taken on a mind of its own with its constant links to other games. If I wanted other games I know where to look for them. It has become so annoying that I’m going to have to delete the app.

The best app

I love there are so many things to chose from. I love the hints come in four. Keep up the good work!
Ad- no reward
by CricketGreen:) on 2020/06/16 02:49
I watched an ad to get hints on where the color was and it did not give my reward. It made me furious so I deleted the app.

New update changed the interface
by Zilkpod on 2020/06/13 01:54
Please change the background color of pictures to white. After the update, the picture background/color of uncolored cells are all gray—this makes it very hard to see colors. Please change back to white background/cellls for uncolored!
Great App....but
by 70sSinger on 2020/06/12 01:47
So this one too now makes you watch ad after ad to move forward. Such a shame. Almost not worth it anymore.
Darn
by Mchacu on 2020/06/09 21:31
Love doing this. The colors are wonderful and the pictures are pretty, not all cartoonish like some. Only problem I’m having is suddenly it’s turning itself off and going to my home page. Over and over again I have to restart the game. Huge bummer as I just want to “paint”. Would give it a 5 star if it wouldn’t do this.
Changes
by molliverwrites on 2020/06/08 15:09
I have loved this game for a long time, however for the last six months it has continually been updated to remove things. First there were four hints and two buckets, then down to two hints and one bucket. Now if these ran out you would need to watch ads. Then the pictures slowly started to change from beautiful artwork to ones without so many colors. I haven’t seen one over 100 in ages. Then they took away all hints and buckets without watching an ad. This is in addition to any you watch to get a picture or that play upon opening. If this continues to happen, I will no longer be recommending this app to other people and possibly delete it.
Hints
by 6mus on 2020/06/08 04:02
I don’t like the way you have changed the hints for this app. When I first downloaded it, there were 4 hints to fill in all spaces with the same number and 4 hints to find one space you’re not seeing. The next upgrade gave only 2 hints each. With those updates, however, you could at least start with those hints starting on a new picture. On the last update, once the hint is used, it’s gone unless you want to watch a video.
Very sluggish on older iPad
by High Desert Jack on 2020/06/07 14:31
This app works very slowly on my older iPad - moving the picture around and resizing have noticeable lag and sometimes I have to tap a greyed in area 2 or 3 times before the app would color it in. So frustrating that I gave up after the first picture and uninstalled the app.
Beautiful!
by galityomtov on 2020/06/02 03:55
Thank you for this app. Every picture is beautiful and it’s a joy to color them.
It’s nice
by Tiny-bug on 2020/06/01 00:51
It’s a amazing app, one of my favorites in fact but after the update going from 2 hints per picture now it’s 2 hints in total it kinda annoying and not only that but the app says I have no hints left and some of the colors are super small. But the price for the yearly subscription is pretty nice, I just can get it. But good work on the app!
Excellent App
by Betsinme on 2020/05/30 20:18
I’ve used several paint by number apps and this is the best one for free that I’ve found . Matter of fact, Inuse it as a hobby for inspiration and to survive this Pandemic . I’m sure most all of you do something to keep your brain ( both sides of it ) stimulated. As a photographer, one from my collection I decided to submit to Flickr . Lo abd behd I woke up to find they awarded an EXPLORE to that particular one. However I do NOT submit as is .. using several Editing tools you can change it .. the perspective, colors, or lack thereof ( black abd white) All in all I highly recommend this app if you enjoy doing paint by numbers . Kudos 👍 You ROCK !!

Saving
by Queeniesusan on 2020/05/29 18:56
I really enjoy this app for the most part, but I don’t finish the entire picture in one sitting. I will work on it over time. My issue comes from when I quite the app for a while and go back later, part of the coloring I had already done has been erased. Now as fun as it is, it isn’t fun to go back and re-color what you just did earlier. It is as if it doesn’t save the last segment that you worked on. I really hope this gets fixed, because it is annoying enough that I am considering uninstalling it.
Ads stick and block app
by Budlink on 2020/05/29 15:08
For the most part, this is great entertainment (some of the choices of colors are pretty weird...) but many times the ads end up freezing and there is no way out - other than restarting my iPad 😢 I would also like a way to cancel the ads after a ‘reasonable’ amount of time (one ad leads into either a repeat of the first ad or into a second... after 18 seconds you realize you are in a loop with no way out...)
Frozen in time
by Meelainee on 2020/05/29 14:58
I’ve really been enjoying this app. My sister got me hooked. Anyway, yesterday, the screen became frozen in an ad. My husband recommended shutting down my iPad. I did that, got back in, and now it is frozen in another ad! So frustrating. I got another paint by number app, but I don’t like it half as much as this one.
Back arrow freezes screen
by Pccdiane on 2020/05/28 15:18
I love this app’s variety of colors and pictures BUT once I tap on a picture, I can’t go back to see other choices. The back arrow in the upper right corner freezes the entire game. It’s so frustrating!
Great Covid 19 Stress Relief
by TX Winter Bear on 2020/05/27 23:57
I started play 2weeks before the pandemic. I love it and even counted 734 pictures I had completed as of today. I have installed and deleted several others that I was not enjoying making this my only coloring game. The game started freezing and I deleted and reinstalled it. I did not know it would erase all the ones I had finished. I don’t mind redoing them because I enjoy the app. I would have liked a choice in clearing them since I am trying to do all the pictures that are available. I was considering purchasing to have all the pictures and no ads. Now I am not so sure I want to since it cleared all the pictures and knowing if I have to reinstall the app again it will erase everything each time.
App dis function
by SR72f on 2020/05/27 18:06
I was enjoying this app a lot until it stopped working on me. Every time I want to color a drawing , in the middle of finding the first color, the app closes and my phone goes to turning off like if it died on me and then comes back on and having to put in my code or finger print to reopen my phone. I have other coloring apps that work just fine so it’s not my phone.
Ads

Ads that prevent play

by Great way to get mail on 2020/05/18 17:39
I used this app for a long, long time. Then I just quit because I was doing other things. Had to download again because it wouldn’t stay on. So now I’m happily surprised with the new way to “paint”. I’ll be using it more now. It’s a great app with lots of great pictures to color. All of my old pictures were lost when I downloaded it again but I’ll just do the favorites again. I recommend this app.
Oil Painting by Number
by Colorado Kayaker (since 2013) on 2020/01/30 04:56
Thank you so much! I love all of your pictures and enjoy deciding which one to do next. I am retired and always busy and can't wait to log on to my iPad to finish one picture and start another one. The colors are beautiful on all of the pictures I have done. I was always concerned about losing my pictures, so I try to remember to save each one in one of my iPad photo albums - just for me to look at. When I save my picture, I am asked if I would like to share in Face Book. All of my high school graduating class follows Face Book. I get so many really nice comments from so many people that I can't read all of them. It really makes me feel good and figure it sends customers your way. I have sent a couple of my pictures to my little 5 year old Granddaughter and Daughter for Thanksgiving and Christmas and they loved them. I hope that was okay and not a problem! Keep up the good work. I know there are so many people that look forward to your pictures and I am on top of the list. Thanks again, it is appreciated! Carol K.N.
Oil Painting by Numbers brought back memories of my youth
by Eddie Quig on 2020/02/01 15:18
I selected the disable hints in the settings but it does do what I thought it would do. If I accidentally touch the hints buttons it will do whatever it is function to do. I don’t know then what disabling the hints buttons should do but it does stop the usage of them. Maybe it wasn’t tested before the put this function in. Downloaded about 2 weeks ago and finished all the free and ones you had to watch a video paintings in about 8 days. Just to let all know you have to watch 3 to 4 videos weather it was free or had to watch a video to paint. This may irritate some. They need to remove the word “a” since in my understanding that would represent “1” and put an “s” at the end of video. Yesterday they increased the amount of colors (24 to about 128) in the paintings which is great, takes longer to paint. The only 2 issues I have is the amount ads to watch, though some are informative, and the amount of space it is using up on my iPad. It puts a logo and no picture of the paintings. Can’t buy an iPad with more memory since I already have 128GB. I don’t want to clear the paint on the ones I have already painted since some have been moved over to premium and would have to purchase a subscription. Because of the ads I am a bit leery to purchase and the ads won’t really go away. But other than that I enjoy the app.
My fave coloring app until...
by kriv70 on 2019/07/12 18:09
Update: The developers replied and said I should update the app, but I had already updated to the latest version when I wrote my review. All my completed images are still gone. Especially don’t like that the colors don’t advance once you finish one, but it’s obvious they want you tapping in the color area more often because the ad is right there. More tapping means more errant taps on the ads. Still like the end results, but the app is not as enjoyable as it was and I’m using it less. This is my favorite coloring app. Just challenging enough to take a while, but not too hard, and a pretty pic at the end. (Although I never liked the obnoxious logo obscuring part of the picture when saving.) But the last update had the app constantly crashing, so I reinstalled and, like others, discovered all my completed pictures lost. Looking through the gallery, some that I had completed before are now premium, some are totally gone. Also, the find and fill hints dropped to 1 each. Hardly ever used those, so whatever. Honestly though, updates that take things away are just frustrating. The premium price is much too high and there are a couple of ads that give you a “close” button but nothing happens when you press it. Still my fave for the end result picture, but disappointed with recent changes. (Also, please stop the pop-up hints! No one needs those after the first two minutes.)

What happened to the pictures??
by Suzieque29 on 2020/05/12 01:30
Edit to add .....so the new update fixed the opening view of the puzzle with getting rid of the very large numbers it’s still distracting when you enlarge the puzzle and the enlargement goes too far out. Please go back to two versions ago before the large number change. Was waiting for and was excited to see this update but only half the issue was fixed. I guess I’ll continue playing my jigsaw puzzles until it’s fixed or find a new paint by number. Shame because I loved this app I love this app and play it every day for I find it very calming. I would normally give this 4 stars (not 5 due to ads). I just went in and the pictures look different. In light Of this i would give it 1 star. I gave 3 as a compromise. The numbers are too large and take over the photo and when you go to enlarge the photos the numbers get even bigger and there is no stop to enlarging it like before. This is very distracting and makes it no fun or relaxing anymore. PLEASE PLEASE fix this back to how it was yesterday. If this doesn’t change I will have to find a new paint by numbers.
Fun at first, but not now.
by Cheerful2mara on 2019/08/04 17:40
This game has been enjoyable for quite awhile, but I’ve been noticing some of the pictures have an extraordinary number of different colors in it, and most of these only color 1 or 2 spaces each. An example is the picture of three surfboards with a circular, blue background. There are 168 different colors in it. That wouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing if the color differences made some sense, but many of these nonsensical colors also appear to be repeats of colors that were used previously, elsewhere in the picture. Maybe it’s more difficult because my eyesight isn’t the greatest, and even though hunting and finding the very tiny dots of color is OK when there are only a few of them, having to spend a lot of time finding them causes eye strain that’s really uncomfortable. There have been other pictures, such as the horse with the beige colored eye, that are equally distracting and, since there’s no way to determine that prior to getting started on a particular painting, this app isn’t fun anymore. Again, I loved this app for a long time, but I’ll be deleting it.
App is great! Must download!!!!
by the username of KittenCx on 2019/09/29 16:04
When I first saw this app I thought that it would be like; color by number, unicorn coloring etc. But when I installed the app it was better than I though! I loved how all the paintings were complicated and honestly I think this app should have 5 stars. But I do have some suggestions; first please take down that ‘click the next color’ button. Or please make it in settings so that I can turn it off. The button always gets on my nerves when I don’t click it first! Also the only simpler pictures are the baby ones. I’m just wondering if maybe you could make a few more but in a different category. Thank you for listening. I love this app and it’s so much fun! This app also doesn’t only have around 15 out of 200 ( not actual numbers just metaphor) pictures that you can actually do without V.I.P. Thanks for reading! :)
I loved this app...
by Liscat6 on 2019/07/06 19:03
I was addicted; pictures are beautiful when completed and it is relaxing, thoroughly enjoyable despite the ads in the free version but, apparently unstable. I’m not sure if due to an update or bug crash, etc. but, occasionally the app would freeze, locking the screen upon picture completion ; then, just wouldn’t open a all. I deleted then reinstalled, knowing that I’d lose all that I’d done but, the problems continue, plus some. I’m happy that this happened prior to purchasing the full app. I’ll save my money and get over my disappointment! The developer contacted me to report that the problem has been found and fixed so I’ve reinstalled the app with trust. Truth is that I missed it. Its slightly different now in that the next color doesn’t auto select as before, you must manually select, which is fine. Thank you for the response! 🙂
Very good game
by Legomackley on 2020/09/13 15:52
Over the pandemic I got into doing paint by numbers and when I wasn’t at home I would wish I was home to do my paint by number. So I downloaded this app and I couldn’t stop playing it. It’s one of those games that if you enjoy it you enjoy and if you don’t you don’t, and what I mean about that is there is no problem with that app that will make you not enjoy it. There are barely any ads. The pictures are free, or at least I haven’t seen one that wasn’t free. The only problem I noticed is about the hints and helping features. Where they’re located is right by the painting and it is very easy to accidentally use one. I suggest that you should put a feature were if you click it you get asked “are you sure you want to use this feature”. Other than that this is a really fun addictive game.
I was Hopeful
by Krisct on 2019/04/23 00:05
This app had a lot of good reviews so I was hopeful. But it did not take long for that feeling to fade. I started looking through all of the pictures and noticed most of them had little icons in the corner. Not knowing what they were, I clicked on the picture to find out. One of them told me I had to watch an ad to color those pictures. The other one told me they were for "premium" members and I can join the club for $20 a week! That's crazy! $20 a week! I continued on trying to find a picture to try. Now I really, really like dolphins. And I found one but I was really crushed to find out it was for the premium club members only. Just CRUSHED!! So I pick a picture to try out. One that wasn't premium or required me to watch an ad. Guess what I was greeted with? An ad that I had to watch! But I picked one that didn't require me to watch an ad! What the heck! What's the point of blocking some of the good pictures unless I watch an ad if you're forced to watch one anyway?! I think I'm going to remove this app.
One of my favorite color by number apps
by Sassi18 on 2019/08/25 14:51
This is one of my favorite Color By Number apps but I do have a couple of complaints. My first complaint is the number of very pastel colors used in a lot of the pictures. I realize I’m a senior citizen and maybe that’s part of the problem but when I’m looking for a piece that needs colored but I find one and it’s a pastel I’ve already filled, it’s very frustrating searching for the pieces that are left. My second complaint is that so many of the colors look like they’re exactly the same. Are the people that create these pictures paid by the number of colors the picture has? Because often, it seems several of the colors could be combined into one. I’m not an artist so maybe there is a difference but to one of the average, they’re the same.
I love this game. But needs something new...
by Garyisboss on 2019/08/22 20:12
This game is great for passing by time or something to do if you are really bored. One major problem is that you need to have internet to be able to paint any of the pictures. As soon as you fill one spot in, you can use it where you please (plain, outside, etc...) I do think the developers need to a feature as to where you can color your own photos. As in choosing a photo from your camera roll, having the app split it up into different colors, and you can decide the difficulty. AKA, be more detailed with more colors, or less detailed with less colors. And then you can paint away. I would love this feature. Other than that, great game. I do recommend this game to others. Also I’ve noticed a lot of reviews about ads. Just turn on airplane mode when playing. It saves battery and disables ads.
Awesome!
by DkWinter11 on 2019/04/10 17:53
This color/paint by number is fabulous! What I like about this app compared to others is that there are actual color schemes for each picture. 90% of the time, other apps use all the colors of the rainbow in one picture. This app offers Autumn tones, Spring tones, marine tones, etc. The finished pictures are works of art....very adult. I saw a review concerned with moving the picture to color better. I found this to be true using my fingers, but not much of an issue if using my Apple pen or other screen pen. Happy I purchased the subscription for hours of relaxing enjoyment. Update: I like to not have to zoom in too far to find the right spaces to color so I can see the picture develop as I go. So thank you for showing the active spaces as a checkerboard to find them easier!

First of all, I really enjoy this app and all the features it includes. It’s become a regular part of my day and is great for taking a break and de stressing. The app works well and is intuitive and easy to use on a phone though it is a little bit of a battery sucker (at least for my phone) My biggest issue is simply that there doesn’t appear to be a way for your pictures to be saved so they can travel from device to device. For example, if I were to get a new phone and resownload this app, all my progress would be lost. Perhaps this is because I don’t have a subscription? I’m not sure, but it would be nice if you could log in using Facebook or email so that the pictures you already completed would be saved across multiple devices.
Beautiful art, system could be better
by Sten2198 on 2019/06/14 12:42
Update: did the free 3 day trial and works much smoother on moving around the screen, so it must be their ads on screen that make it not as easy to use. If the cost was less to go ad free I would consider it, but it is way too overpriced as it is now in my opinion. The pictures themselves are great, with a great selection of free choices. The VIP pricing is ridiculous - a one time fee of $39 would be high, a monthly fee of that price is way too expensive. I don’t love the way that everything appears gray until you zoom way in, it makes it harder to find the selected color spots for no reason. I also get frustrated that it changes the color of the areas you touch that aren’t the color you use. All this does is make zooming in and moving around the pictures unnecessarily difficult. All in all, a good product that with a few tweaks could be great.
Finally, something worth downloading.

“Adult coloring” ok, I admit, used to love to break out the crayons/colored pencils when younger but I prefer my time spent on something a little more challenging than a black light poster with a dozen colored markers or my granddaughter’s rag paper coloring books. I like a finished picture that resembles a painting or a thousand plus piece jigsaw puzzle. This isn’t a coloring book. Pictures are vibrant. Color pallet looks more like walking into a high end paint store instead of a box of cheap crayons. Subjects are variable from wildlife to portraits, landscapes to still life. And from photo image to classic art styles similar to Monet or Warhol. And free vs paid... there is more than enough free art work to keep one busy with 3+ new pictures released every day. Video ads are only when you open app up and when you start a new picture. Banner ad is small across bottom. Paid gets access to some beautiful art but I don’t feel frustrated or cheated by the free version like I have with many other apps. Only thing I would like to see changed. Numbers for colors remain the same font size when zoomed. It would be nice if they got a little bigger.
Great Covid 19 Stress Relief
by TX Winter Bear on 2020/05/27 23:57
I started play 2weeks before the pandemic. I love it and even counted 734 pictures I had completed as of today. I have installed and deleted several others that I was not enjoying making this my only coloring game. The game started freezing and I deleted and reinstalled it. I did not know it would erase all the ones I had finished. I don’t mind redoing them because I enjoy the app. I would have liked a choice in clearing them since I am trying to do all the pictures that are available. I was considering purchasing to have all the pictures and no ads. Now I am not so sure I want to since it cleared all the pictures and knowing if I have to reinstall the app again it will erase everything each time.
Update to my previous review
by Lisa Bateman on 2019/04/07 06:16
I think I reviewed this previously but can’t find it. Anyway, I’ve decided to update my old review because now that I’ve used it a while, I find I like it better than all other paint by numbers. Previously, I stated that it was hard to tell the shaded area for the number and color you’re working on from all the others. It shows up a lot better if you make the screen bigger and focused in more. Which I was wanting to do it without doing that but that would defeat the purpose of it being challenging I guess. And now that I think about how much fun it is, the price isn’t bad for the yearly subscription. I’m just wondering if I would do more than was available at a time then lol.
Who programmed this thing?
by t3rm!n8r29 on 2019/12/04 06:57
The gameplay itself is fun, but the experience is ruined by 2 big things. 1. I have never seen an app drain my battery as fast as this one does. This tells me that the developers are probably using some horribly inefficient toolkits to build the software 2. There are far too many interactive ads. And after watching the ads, every time you start playing, this annoying flying envelope covers the right side of the screen offering the ability to pay to eliminate ads. That stupid envelope is more annoying than the ads because you can’t swipe it away and it gets in the way of gameplay, and I can promise the developers that it makes me want to uninstall the app rather than pay. And get real—who in their right mind is going to pay 10 bucks a week for this? A one time purchase I might consider, but a recurring subscription is ludicrous.
Used to be a great app!
by IamATimeTraveler on 2019/07/07 00:55
I have completed almost 600 paintings and loved the app...then you had to include the useless, pointless FB option (I stopped using FB a long time a go) and change the dynamic of the app with an annoying reminder to choose a color that I wish was an option to disable. I have lost all of the hundreds of completed paintings as your app did not work any longer post FB integration update! The only thing left to do was to uninstall the app, then reinstall...that’s why I gave it only three instead of five stars. I hate FB or others (Google, Twitter...) who collect every digital bit of information and sale it to the highest bidder! By the way, your app crashed on my 12.9 iPad Pro.
Great app. Need NEW content. Done all pictures
by designgirls2 on 2020/04/09 14:43
I got this app for my mom who is not a person who uses electronics. She is not well and has spent hours on my iPad everyday with it. We’ve tried other apps and they don’t even compare as far as artistic quality, color and ease of use. Being artists we appreciate the high quality of the art. She has done over 1200 pictures pretty much every one in the app. Despite the glowing comments she has been frustrated lately with the lack of new art work and the quality of the dailies. The “new” content isn’t new and the childish pictures are not of interest to her. She feels like she has exhausted this app and actually really frustrated. We’ve looked at other apps again but she just wants his app to have more content. Thank you for making a great app. Keep up the good work!
A great app
by HousesGalore on 2019/08/27 16:10
I've really enjoyed this app. It's relaxing and easy to use. However, after the last update is now missing an important feature. Previously, when you completed a color the next color would automatically be highlighted and show gray in the picture. Now, you have to manually click on the next color to make it show gray in the picture. Please fix this so that is automatic again. I find myself scrolling through the picture looking for more of the color I was working on only to find it's completed and I need to manually select the next color. It's a waste of time not to have it automatically to the next color. Thank you.
Intrusive ads ruin this app
by Alexc823 on 2019/08/07 23:23
This app is pretty fun and has some good pictures. However, the experience is ruined by the intrusive ads. An ad plays every single time you enter the app, even if you only exited for a few seconds to check a text. There are banner ads that sometimes randomly expand to take up half the screen while you’re playing, and there’s no way to minimize them besides closing out of the app. If you’re listening to music or podcasts while you color, this app will turn off your sound even when it doesn’t have an ad with audio playing. I totally understand that ads are how they make money, but they shouldn’t ruin the experience. Also, the cost for premium membership to get rid of ads is outrageous...$10 per week?! Finally, this app drains my phone battery like no other. Probably because of all the ads.
Love this app
by KimMarcAndre on 2019/08/02 18:28
I really think that this app is exceptional. Good for the developers of this app. I’m unfortunately unable to afford the paid version, however if you don’t mind watching an ad to unlock a picture to do it’s wonderful. I find that time goes by very quickly. The pictures are absolutely stunning. If you can afford to pay for the subscription, I’d encourage you to do so. If you’re unable there’s still plenty of beautiful pictures for you to do. They are exceptional, not like some of the other apps. I applaud the creators of this app, and again I urge you to get this app I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do. Thank you.
Fix Fix Fix
by Gocoastl on 2019/09/30 11:30
Alright, I am a weekly subscriber and began using the app with an iphone xs max. I got the new iphone 11 pro, transferred my apps and information over with almost no issues. After data transfer to new phone, my previously completed pictures (and current pictures in progress) showed up fine but i no longer received the facebook messenger pictures. So i deleted the app in order re-install it hoping that i could get the facebook messenger to reset and begin sending me pictures again. Sadly, when i booted up the app, i hit restore purchase option and the app said it did restore the purchase, BUT ALL THE PICTURES I HAVE PAINTED SINCE JULY HAVE DISAPPEARED ALONG WITH MY CURRENT ONES IN PROGRESS. There is no specific option to “log in” and now nothing i have done is apparently saved and here i am paying ridiculous $4 per week for this foolishness. If this nonsense can’t be fixed i want my money back.
Beautiful pictures
by Kim G J on 2019/06/17 15:00
I actually paid the $40 a year subscription fee because I wanted to color as many pictures as I could. They truly are beautiful. I did this when each picture had around 24 colors. They updated the app and now most pictures have over 100 colors. This puts such a strain on my eyes, that I usually only color 1 picture a day now. I know that I can use the magnifying tool or the other tool that paints every color of a certain number, but that defeats the purpose to me. I would appreciate a few more pictures with less colors. That way I might actually be able to color a few more pictures a day instead of just 1. Not sure if I will renew my subscription now.
Love this app!
by Azkate95 on 2020/04/07 18:07
I love this app and purchased the annual subscription - well worth it. I have a couple of suggestions: there should be more than 2 new pictures a day for subscribers; once you finish a color, the next color should automatically be highlighted (I can’t tell you how many times I finished a color not realizing it and I am still looking for more when it’s actually waiting for me to pick another color ☺️) and last suggestion is to allow a choice of colors for the shaded areas representing the current chosen color, oftentimes the gray is just too hard to see. Thanks for listening 😁
Stopped working
by Loivia on 2019/07/04 16:09
I’ve had this app for a while and I’ve always enjoyed it. It’s a good pastime, although each piece is always intricate. There’s a membership necessity for half of the pictures and when you run out of freebies, you’re just stuck. No ads to get a pic, nothing. Got kinda annoying, but still was a great app. That was until recently. I jumped into the app a day or two ago and it showed the first entry screen of the logo, and loaded. And loaded. And loaded some more. And then, it kicked me back to the home screen. None of my other apps are having this issue. This might be a bug? I restarted my phone and it didn’t help. Sadly, because of this issue, I plan on deleting the app from my phone due to lack of ability to use it, and I hope that they fix that bug in the future.
Love this app! But want the old version back
by mmmkiijklKloihuyffdszq on 2019/07/04 14:37
I love this coloring app! This is my go to now out of all the other coloring apps I have. The detail in the pics with the different shades of colors make the end product breathtaking. However, I just updated the app and the new version took away the automatic switch to the next color when you finish the previous one. 😢 That was one of my favorite aspects of this app compared to the others. I keep looking for my next piece but don’t even have a color picked so it’s for nothing. It will eventually tell you to pick a color but still...I want my old version back!
Two steps forward, one step back
by JuanitaMM1 on 2019/07/12 17:23
Really like these pictures—they are beautiful! I was impressed how nice they were, with 24 or fewer colors, then suddenly there are often over 100, which seemed to me like overkill. I was going to suggest that the selected color cell be patterned instead of a solid grey, when bam! That feature was added! But the numbers don’t get any bigger when expanded, but at least they are a contrasting color, which helps. I also really liked that the next color got selected automatically, then that was taken away. Manual selection was already possible, so why?
Change Highlighted Color
by AuburnDitzy on 2020/04/29 23:22
I really enjoy painting with this app and the pictures are beautiful. The only thing that would make it a greater app would be being able to change the highlighted color from gray and white to a more standout color. One of the apps I also use for oil painting allows me to change the highlighted area to one of six colors that are much easier to see. I can select yellow, green, blue or red checked or a red or blue solid color. Would it be possible to get these highlighted colors with this app? I use this App a lot. I just checked my statistics and I’ve colored 1069 pictures!
Amazing in every way.
by Kalothekalico on 2019/10/04 11:52
I’m an App reviewer by hobby and I stumbled across this app, saw the reviews and decided to download it. Immediately I fell in love with every picture! The simple design of the app, the calendar, the free to membership ratio! UGH I love it. Starting with coloring the pictures are amazing and most of them are free! When coloring it’s super smooth and easy navigation with refreshed hints every picture. I have respect for this app because of the details that went into every picture. The saving is nice, experienced no problems and no critique. The membership seems perfectly balanced as well. Just a really great app so 11/10. -Kall
Nice Paintings But A Few Things I Don’t Care For
by BGs_Fan on 2020/04/12 15:47
Although I see it is disclosed, I don’t think it’s fair to lose the free trial as soon as you subscribe. I paid for the weekly rate and thought that would give me two weeks to try but it doesn’t. There also doesn’t seem to be much help; like for example I was trying to find out if there is an undo button in case you color the wrong section and couldn’t find an answer to that question. Help file is very lean. Finally I would prefer an app that allow you to control the pressure/application of the paint and you just tap on this one to fill the areas. Again not a bad app, just not for me.
Awesome
by Pepper 820604 on 2019/12/20 14:14
I do not usually write reviews but this one is worthy.....I sit on my recliner to watch TV and if I done have a cat or dog on my lap I need something to do with my hands....this is very relaxing. And the pictures or beautiful....I have had one other painting app. It pulled me in and then got to a point where I had to pay....I am not going to pay to use an app..... The colors are beautiful....I like that I can paint what ever part I want either by number or by section....I cannot say enough about this app....if you are unsure just down load it if you don’t like it unsubscribe....I figure most people will not unsubscribe
30 hours in, this is how I feel. :)
by lexibaby on 2019/07/31 21:47
I really like the app. I would give it five stars if not for three small things that bug me. (I don’t expect them to fix all three, but I can always hope). 1. I wish ad-free was available as a one-time purchase as well, not just as part of the subscription. 2. I wish the travel and landscape pictures had captions or some sort of location tag, because I’d love to go to some of these places. 3. The buttons with the bucket and the magnifying glass are in slightly bad spots (but this might be due to either my old iPad or the ad underneath the buttons) which makes me accidentally hit them way too often.
Best coloring app and it’s working again
by J201299 on 2020/01/30 23:18
I love the final results from this app and the picture selection is great. Latest release (1.4) is very nice too. Thx. January 2020 release has partially broken the app. Developers did another release but I view that the app is still broken when only one of three new pictures per day is actually accessible to paint. Very frustrating. I’ve lowered my rating to one star. Thanks Veraxen folks! That must have been a sneaky bug but you got it. As best as I can tell, the pictures that were “freezing” are back and functioning. Thx for the hard work.
Beautiful Pictures, BUT
by Ruthie52 on 2019/05/11 17:36
#1. I’m giving this app 3 stars because of the fact that you can only upgrade the app if you’re willing to pay so much money a week, monthly or yearly. Now I’m one that that will pay 5to 6 bucks, possibly 10 bucks for a 1 time fee for an app. But I can promise I will never ever pay monthly to color a picture on my phone. Honey bottom line is, if I can’t eat it I won’t pay it! #2. Please get rid of the color change if I hit the wrong number or give me the option to not use it. #3. I would also like to be able to not see a pop up when I’ve found all of one number that’s says pick a number. Now if all the above was fixed I would definitely give it 5 ⭐️.
Love
by ZombieB4coffee on 2020/02/09 01:45
As I lay here on day 3 of the flu, I thought it was time I sent in a review to say how much I enjoy this app. It’s great for winding down after work. My favorite pictures are the colorful ones, especially when color is used in unexpected ways, and pictures of food. I wish there was a way to remove pictures from the “In progress” section because it put pictures in there that I touched while scrolling and probably won’t complete. Also, would like the option to remove ones I’ve started and don’t like. I really don’t want to see them either.
Cool app, missing one important feature
by Slidyswinger on 2020/08/12 17:10
The one thing holding me back from liking this app is the inability to upload your own photos. Every other color by number app I use allows it. This is the best coloring app of them all, but I don’t use it because I want to use my own pictures. If that ability was in the app, I would only use this app. And it isn’t that the photos they provide aren’t cool, it’s just that some days I’m in the mood to color something more personal, like a photo of my dog or a landscape photo I’ve taken. Makes it so much more fun when the photo means something to you. If you added this feature I would subscribe to the app and use it every day.
Enjoying this app!
by Elaine9000 on 2020/07/28 07:07
You will not be bored with this app! There are so many oil paintings to choose from (e.g., nature, architecture, animals, beaches, still life, fruit, vegetables and so much more) and the color pallets are vibrant and beautiful! I can spend hours on coloring different oil paintings because it relaxes me and it’s fun to do. I love the light houses and beach scenes. It’s hard to put down so be prepared for that. If you have an iPad and iPad pencil it is even better. There are a few ads after you complete a painting but they are very short. The developers did a great job with this app. Thank you!!
Overbearing Ads
by ajssmom on 2020/03/16 00:28
Really enjoyable while working on a picture, but the ad scheme is completely overbearing. If you even pause to do anything and the screen locks, you will have to watch another ad just to be able to even continue the picture. Ads when you complete and another ad when you select next picture. Ads everywhere. Would be fine with paying once just to remove ads but only subscription is an option. Outside of ads, runs smooth and beautiful pictures. Can upload to Facebook on completion or you can find your completed pictures under My Collection and save to photos if you want.
The Greatest App Ever!!
by Miss_Jean on 2019/04/11 18:58
This is now my favorite go to app! I use to use Recolor, which was amazing in itself. But when I found that this app was oil painting, that was all it took! The pics are absolutely beautiful. The coloring apps can not even begin to compare!! Now, since you have changed the spaces to color to a plaid, they are so much easier to see. I was having trouble with some of the grays and greens with the coloring spaces being just a darker shade of gray. I would always miss at least one, lol. Kudos guys!! I love what you have brought to my world!! Thank you♥️♥️♥️♥️
I love this app
by JulieKhush on 2019/09/19 14:17
I do love this app and I love the amount of access I have in the free version. Yes I would like the nice pictures in the paid version too but oh well. I do have a few suggestions though - 1. If paint baskets are not used in a picture can you please roll them over so it can be used in the next one? 2. Can we display some indicator against each number color to indicate how many of those occurrences we have? So if my picture has colors from 1-200 there are several shades which only have one occurrence of it. Can I know how many occurrences for each color so I can knock out the single ones or the super busy ones first as I desire??? Please please
Beautiful Pictures, Generous with Free Content
by Luca's Lady on 2019/11/14 20:02
I love this app. The pictures are gorgeous, and they’re constantly adding new ones, even at the free level. There’s a subscription level, which is pricey, but the free selection is high-quality and extensive. There are ads, but they’re not intrusive. I’m happy to watch them because they don’t interrupt my session, and they help support the creators. Usually they show up before I start a painting session. Highly recommended for anyone who loves beautiful artwork and likes painting by numbers.
Loved it...at first
by JazzLvr15 on 2019/05/25 17:54
This app has beautiful artwork that I really enjoy watching develop as I add color. In the beginning it was a pleasant experience just relaxing and filling in the numbers to see what artwork would emerge. But then, the numbered shapes began getting smaller, more numerous and more obscure and difficult to find causing my relaxing chill to become more of an annoying ‘challenge’. After 8 hours of attending to ‘work fires’ and staff problems the last thing I want is a game that keeps me even slightly on edge, and if I did it wouldn’t be a paint by number app. I’m dissatisfied and disappointed there is not an option to stay in the no-stress zone using this app.
Changes
by molliverwrites on 2020/06/08 15:09
I have loved this game for a long time, however for the last six months it has continually been updated to remove things. First there were four hints and two buckets, then down to two hints and one bucket. Now if these ran out you would need to watch ads. Then the pictures slowly started to change from beautiful artwork to ones without so many colors. I haven’t seen one over 100 in ages. Then they took away all hints and buckets without watching an ad. This is in addition to any you watch to get a picture or that play upon opening. If this continues to happen, I will no longer be recommending this app to other people and possibly delete it.
Should be Relaxing but ...
by The34thwarrior on 2020/01/15 21:07
While this app has the potential to be very relaxing and fun, it is also very frustrating!!! When I was younger, I’m 73, paint by number was fun and relaxing, this app could be but the way it’s setup makes that hard. On paint by number I grew up with you had a canvas board with an outline of the picture with numbers in sections. NO grey picture to color. This app uses a grey indicator to show where the colors go but, the grey of the picture can make it extremely difficult for these old eyes of mine to see where the indicator is, so I suggest the developer LOSE that grey and just have a white background with outlines and numbers
Revised review-I am really enjoying this app
by Queueman on 2020/05/17 01:36
I originally rated it lower because of ads, but they really are not that bad. I am enjoying the app quite a bit. Right now there is so much tension and uncertainty in the word that this helps me unwind and, at least momentarily, ignore all the turmoil. I find it very relaxing and quite addictive. The paintings are wonderful and complex. It is a bit like painting and a bit like a jigsaw puzzle. Yeah, the ads are still there, but I have learned to coexist with them. I wish real life could be so accommodating.
great app, but glitches
by jiyatheperson on 2020/04/09 20:14
ok this is a cool app! there is so many cool options to color, but i wish they had a wider variety. there are LOTs off ads all the time, so i wish they could cut it down a little. there e one glitch that really bothers me that they didn’t fix in the update. whenever i exit the game after playing, then when i come back, it deletes most of my past work and i have to start over again!! it really annoys me, but that’s the only main issue i came across while using the app. it’s still a great app, and it gets you really addicted!!
