Forgot your color pencils, crayons, or markers at home? No problem! With 500 Coloring Pages on your tablet or phone, you’re all set for coloring fun.
Perfect for keeping kids entertained on long road trips without any annoying sound effects, you can drive in peace and know that your children are being creative with 500 Coloring Pages.
500 Coloring Pages does exactly what its name says – it has 500 Coloring Pages that you can color in any combination of colors.
Kids will love how easily it lets you zoom in and “color” the small details in the drawing, and it contains three categories of coloring pages.
Simply choose your color and tap where on the picture that you’d like to color. Unfortunately, the coloring tool only seems to be like the Paint Bucket tool seen in Microsoft Paint or Photoshop, and only lets you fill in the outlined area with a color. We would love it if the developers added in a Pencil-type tool where you could add on to the picture or draw your own pictures to color.
These categories are: Easy, Medium, and Hard. Easy is primarily large, easy to fill shapes and drawings, whereas Hard contains numerous small details and take much more time to color. A Random coloring page can also be generated by tapping the green folder containing a question mark.
500 Coloring Pages also allows you to save your colored picture to share with anyone, which is especially neat when you want to send your parents the beautiful colored picture that their grandkids colored (and even better, the colors are all within the lines!).
Overall, 500 Coloring Pages is quite similar to most MS Paint type of apps, but the main differentiating factor is that 500 Coloring Pages has 500 pre-loaded coloring pages that you can simply open up and color away.
Appearance and Layout
The appearance and layout of 500 Coloring Pages is very simple, and even though it is not especially aesthetically appealing, its style will definitely appeal to young kids and it gets the job done. It has the basic menu options on the left of the screen and the picture in the center. All one needs to do is tap and color.
The pictures that you get to color aren’t especially amazing and tend to be rather simple. Another thing that the developers could possibly add to the app to make it better would be a “Difficult” category that had much more detailed watercolour-esque pictures to color for those who are older.
The value of 500 Coloring Pages might be a little pricey at $1.99 for an app that only allows you to color within the the lines (e.g. it’s practically a paint bucket tool).
However, if you have kids that need to be entertained for awhile, for the sheer amount of “playability” offered in coloring 500 pages and at only 12 MB, the price seems worth it.
