Color & Learn: Sea Animals: Written Android App Review
Of all the things I love about the Nexus 7, the large screen has to be my favorite feature. Not only is it great for reading, writing, and games, but it also serves as a wonderful source of entertainment for kids. I’ve always been an advocate of using technology to help with teaching children, which is why I thoroughly enjoy seeing a strong emphasis placed on educational apps and games.
Color & Learn: Sea Animals, developed by 1up Creative Group, is a wonderful coloring app which is not only entertaining, but also educational. It’s great for both children and adults who are looking for a free and fun Android app. It currently has a 5-star rating in the Google Play store with over 50 positive reviews.
Concept and Functionality:
While drawing apps and games can be fun, the wrong device can really put a damper on the entertainment factor. Color & Learn: Sea Animals feels like it was made for the Nexus 7, which is great for users with similar devices. It’s also compatible with phones, so you’re not limited to devices with large screens.
Color & Learn: Sea Animals is very intuitive, so kids will learn how to use it in no time at all. There are 10 different sea animals to color in, each with their own characteristics and animations. You can choose from a palette of 7 colors including rainbow, and you can even blend colors by layering them. If you make a mistake, simply use the eraser to correct it.
Children can be somewhat erratic when drawing, which is why it’s great that Color & Learn: Sea Animals automatically colors inside lines. This not only keeps the young ones from turning the whole ocean purple, but also teaches the importance of precision and patience.
Once the aquatic masterpiece is complete, children can watch their creation swim through the ocean. The cute animations and sound effects are also a plus. You can also save drawings to your device and share with others.
One of my favorite features Color & Learn: Sea Animals offers is simplicity. You don’t have to worry about choosing brush styles, sizes, or even colors. Everything is literally right at your fingertips, allowing you and/or your child to focus on drawing.
Another neat feature is how universal the app is. While it’s geared toward younger users, even adults will have fun coloring sea animals. It’s great practice for learning how to draw on your device or honing your skills.
Lastly, Color & Learn: Sea Animals even teaches children about blending colors by allowing them to layer them and create new colors.
For a free app, Color & Learn: Sea Animals offers countless hours of fun and entertainment for both children and adults. Between the wide variety of drawings to neat animations and sound effects, this is definitely a must-have for anyone looking for a great tablet coloring app!
