Lake: Artists’ Coloring Books App Reviews

0 add


It's awesome but you have to bye the pages only one is free

Innovative tools, better art than most

The tools are cool. A bit like a certain well-known photo editing program, you can choose brush size and type. Lake allows a truer coloring experience than most of the “tap to fill” coloring pages do. You can really express yourself with their coloring tools. The color palette is a mixed bag. I like the way it's set up for the user to select colors from. Sort of like a cross between a digital palette and a Pantone swatch. At first, the color selection seemed amazing. But after you do a few pictures, you begin to feel limited. There are no bold colors, no "true" colors--that is, there's a carmine red but no cherry red. I’d like to see a wider range of color availability. After giving it much thought, I became a subscriber. The quality of the art is what sold me, but I’d like to see more artists added more frequently.

Loving it😁😁😁😊😊😊

I love lake so much 😍😍😍😍😍🐶


Most amazing coloring app ever.

Hours Of Free Fun

keeps kids/family. entertained

Castle of art

Beautiful castle with all different colors.

The best coloring book app ever!!

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

Fun interface, horrible auto save

I loved coloring with this app. It is great for releasing my mind and getting in love with color. However, i have had 2 different paintings (out of the 3 that i worked on) not auto save correctly. There is nothing worse that having part of your art removed so then you have to start over again. I have sent an email to tech support with no response. This is the second time. The color wheel also would be great if it could have more options. The paint brush can be to fat at times for intricate works. The 2 stars is mostly for the frustration of auto save. Also, it would be good to have a tab that has “my purchases” rather than assuming that everyone has the subscription. Haven’t tried other apps, but this one is okay if you doing the painting in one sitting only.

It's ok

I think that you should add more colors


This app is beyond amazing but I hate how you have to pay for ALMOST EVERYTHING! I do like the color wheel but everything else you could do a bit better on😊👍🏼

Phenomenal App & Support

Lake is an extraordinary app - there is a huge selection of templates from a wide variety of artists. The color pallets are beautiful and the methods with which you can color are outstanding. Also, there are numerous sharing options or you can just save to your photos. I also want to make a huge shout-out to the amazing folks behind Lake. They have a sincere passion for what they are doing and are deeply involved. And they are open to feedback and respond quickly. Oh, and did I mention that coloring really is relaxing!?!?!? They make the entire experience fun! THANKS!

Peaceful Break

This did just the trick when I needed to work on calming down my thinking and taking restorative breaths as I waited for my daughter to come out of surgery. Thank you for the simple mind break 💜

A delightful app.

A most entertaining time pass.

Love this app

This is like the best coloring app I’ve never seen and app that is free and does not glitch or trick you l suggest this game to ages ten and up.l love this game and l think you will to.✌️😎😊❤️❤️❤️❤️💕💕😍😍

Misleading subscription policy

I apologize if this may come as a surprise but I find your subscription policy a bit misleading. I downloaded the App looking for a simple coloring book and obviously heard a lot of good things about this App. But like most Apps, we use it in the beginning and then gets lost in the mix. Well to my surprise I was getting a random 2.99 charge. SORRY FOR THE 1 STAR


Ok, I love this app. I do. I played it in the Apple Store with the Apple pen and it’s phenomenal. Now that I have the app, I have one free drawing a day. To me, that’s incredibly ridiculous. For an app that has multiple coloring pages i should have two or three. I understand that the artists need the support, but to need to subscribe for all the pages is ridiculous. I would rather pay $7-8 dollars for the app then, and send the proceeds to the artists.

horrible Lake

It just doesn’t work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!😡😠😠😡😠😡😠😡😠😡😠😡😠😡😠😡😠😡😠😡😠I just hate it😡😠🤢😡😠🤢😡😠🤢😡😠🤢😡😠🤢😡😠🤢😡😠😡😠😡😠🤢😡😠

I love it!

Color Your World

Great interface, vibrancy of colors is beyond comparison. A great outlet for creativity, thanks for the work!

Not enough variety

The colors and tools just don't offer enough variety for me. The colors are all tints and shades but no true color wheel shades. I would like some other brush options as well. The art work is lovely and I will prob buy a few pages from my fave artists but not going to subscribe maybe in the future if they add more tools/colors.

Love it

This app is so relaxing. It feels wonderful to be able to just color and have the app interface be as pleasant as the coloring experience. Plus, knowing artists are actually getting paid is 👍 I have three requests for the future: When in paint bucket, a second tap erases the fill A paint dropper tool to match previously painted stuff A slightly bigger pre-chosen color palette


It's fun and free! What more could you ask for in a coloring app? I love all the features, like the option to color inside the lines automatically even if your finger goes outside, the different kinds of coloring options like physically coloring it yourself or autofilling, etc. It's better than most other coloring apps I have seen. 10/10 would recommend.

Mostly great app

Only complaint is that there’s no true blue. Blue is one of the primary colors. And yet I either get cyan or a murky gray blue shading towards purple. Perhaps it’s somewhere in the app color wheel, but after several days of playing around with the app, true blue eludes me.


The game is super addictive.I love it,it’s my fav game :3

Dear Lake,

Thank you for giving me at least one coloring paper on each page. I have some questions.Are you a Christian? Where do you go to church?

The developer is more focused on selling

Should show the coloring sheet I bought across devices and allow me to use it. Stop showing yearly subscription. Very annoying.

Tranquil Relaxing

This is a wonderful way to relax and unwind anytime of the day with a great variety of pallets from various artists! A little or a lot can melt the stress of the day away ...

Ugly pictures

And not much variety. I prefer the more popular coloring book app. Thousands of pictures and they're not all ugly.

A number #1 app

I love drawing and you gave me this awesome app


Lake is a free app that gives you a free trial period in which you can download and color a new drawing every day. It is easy to use and is relaxing and fun. You can tap your inner artist, and your own creativity even though you are using someone else's drawings. You will be surprised at how many different designs you can create out of one drawing. I definitely enjoy this app and recommend it.

Grand Daughter Heaven

As an excited GrandPa, my 8 year old Grand Daughter and I sit as I watch her color with great creativity and style. The stay in the lines feature is priceless. She doesn't have the evil mistake happen when coloring or get frustrated when a color crosses a line when it should not. Great software, great idea. For $30.00/year, that sure beats taking her to Target for an afternoon.

Spectacular app ...👍😁


Bueno muchas era mientras

Es bueno


I love this game

Pay $ to color mediocre pictures

I don't think so. You wanted a review. There you go.

What a beautiful app

So lovely to use. And the different themes artists and the unending choice of colors to use. What an ingenious color wheel. Nice job! They definitely deserved the award!

Fantastic app ruined by outrageous price

It's a great coloring app but $40 a year!?!? Ludicrous. Lots of cheaper options. Would you pay $40 one time for a paper coloring book? I didn't think so. This is even worse. Look elsewhere.


How do I erase???

Best coloring app I've ever used

App is easy to use. love the drawings and the variety of artists and styles of drawings.


i like dis

Key feature missing

Is there a way to select a color already on the screen in order to match the exact shade? The memory of the color palette doesn't go back far enough and mismatched shades make coloring extremely frustrating.

Won't allow access to all books

I'm not able to scroll down to see all the books, it stops scrolling and just jumps. I'd love to be able to access them all.



This game has a good consept but...

This game teaches you skills and I get that but they won't let you continue unless you know how to draw. I don't like this game that much . It isn't even fun like other games are. Recolor is a much better app.

Good, but.....

Like the app & pictures, but not happy with color wheel. Lots of colors not available, i.e. Reds, golds, silvers, etc.....Red is a medium coral color at best. Paid for use of app for 1 year and disappointed.

Coloring inside the lines!

Fun app. Free pics to color. Color wheel not the easiest to use but does allow more color variety & you don't have to "unlock" them. I do like the feature that allows you to choose whether you want the color to stay within the line boundaries or be expressive & color wherever you like!

Simply Awesome!

'Nuff said.

Was wonderful, but...

This was one of my favorite apps - it had some creative art (better than the typical mandalas), and it was super therapeutic. However, I tried to access the prints today only to find that I can't even continue working on prints I've started until I sign up to pay. I get paying for full access, but these were free prints and I had already been working on them for a few weeks. Hopefully this gets resolved! Update: I wasn't able to retrieve any of my older works even after getting help. I opted for the membership. The UI and experience is still great, but I wish they had newer images more frequently. Overall, it's still a good app.


Fun every day
