1000s of adults are fond of drawing. Once a person draws something on the canvas, he/she may want to fill the drawing with color. Generating new colors by mixing two or more colors is not an easy task. If mixing doesn’t yield the right color, you’ll have to dump the new color. Thus, we can say that it takes months or even years of practice to create the perfect color.
Once the drawing is ready, users will take their printouts or frame it. Instead of spending money on hardcopy coloring pages, taking printouts, or learning to mix colors, you can use a coloring app on your Android or iOS device. Why use an application? Well, apps support millions of colors. With a tap on a button, you can see a color chooser tool or a palette that shows various types of colors. All you have to do is select a color and tap on the drawing part to fill it with the chosen color. If the color doesn’t look good, you can change it within a few seconds by simply tapping on undo button, choosing a new color, and tapping on the part of the drawing once again.
