Lumiappaday #288: Coloring Book demoed on the Nokia Lumia 900 (KidsApp)

| August 30, 2012 | Reply

This is one for the kids – a very basic colouring book. Pretty much like those magic painting books where you paint with water and everything turns into the right colour? Well in Coloring (I dislike spelling colour this way :p) Book, you have outlines of drawings. You then select a crayon colour and just touch a section. Anything within that solid line gets coloured in that way. Much like the colour fill tool in MS Paint.

Activities like this could help with hand eye coordination, colour recognition, nurture creativity and learn focus. It might be even nicer if it was possible to have a slightly more advanced mode to see brush strokes.

Note again, this is just for kids! A much more advanced drawing app is scheduled for tomorrow (currently processing now).

I think colour selection could have been made a little bit better. At the moment you flick up and that selects your crayon. I think it might be nice to have that OSX dock style so as I’m dragging my finger, the particular colour enlarges and then maintain the flick up gesture.
