The daily grind has driven tons of stressed-out fully-grown people back to one of their favorite childhood pastimes: coloring. Coloring books have been getting trendier and trendier for a while now, and there are ever more people spending hours of their free time scribbling into one. If you want to try it but still haven’t dished out for one of the hundreds of books out there plus the pack of colored pencils or crayons, no worries. We think of everything here at Uptodown, and we’ve put together a list of five free Android coloring apps for you to enjoy instantly.
Coloring is great for relieving stress or letting your imagination roam free. The large number of apps available might intimidate more than one person and that’s why this selection is essential – we’ve picked out the ones that stand out for one reason or another. We don’t spell out how to handle the app given how basic it is for all of them: to color you just have to select the hue you’re looking for and tap the area you want to fill with color, while to zoom in or out on a certain area just pinch the screen. So without further ado, here are our five coloring app picks.
Coloring for Adults
This app takes you quickly and easily to multiple categories where you can select tons of drawings you can color in however you like. It’s got a huge list of available colors and a clean interface that lets you concentrate on what matters: coloring in the nice illustrations. [Download]
We’re looking at one of the most downloaded coloring apps, which makes sense considering its multiple features: it has a broad color palette, it’s as simple to handle as it is effective, you can get inspiration from other users and like their colored-in drawings… all in all a very nice coloring app that also lets you share your creations with your friends or the Colorfy community. While it’s true they’ve gone a little overboard with the ads these days, it’s probably still got the best user community of all these picks. [Download]
We picked this app over other ones because it focuses on a specific theme, nature, instead of having tons of different ones. The nature theme is still broad, though: animals, feminine designs, floral stamps… all the variety you could ask for. Garden Coloring also stands out for an intuitive drawing mode where you can pick different colors in the same zone and draw on your picture with no limits whatsoever. [Download]
If you’re afraid of getting lost amongst detail-filled illustrations, this app could be the one for you. The designs you can color in and relax with are simpler, though not exactly simple. With a more surreal aesthetic, Coloring Book strips the features down to the essentials. That said, you can still take inspiration from, or simply enjoy, other colorers’ creations shared over the app. [Download]
One of the features that got my attention with this app is its variety of color palettes. Lots are paid, but others are unusual and fun to use. You can enjoy the works created by other people, like in most apps like this, but here the section is divided into two: the most viewed and a selection of the latest pics. You’ll get as much pleasure from creating lovely pictures as from seeing what everyone else has made. [Download]
