★ Winner of Children's Technology Review Editor's Choice Award. Selected by Apple: iTunes Rewind & Staff Favorites! An interactive artistic springboard for children ages 3-10+. ★

Color & Draw is the best children's coloring app. It's feature-rich, boasts a high-fidelity, professional grade drawing engine—you can draw a circle very quickly and not get an octagon—and is designed for kids! :-)

It is 4 apps in 1
➔ A drawing and sketching app with white and black canvas backgrounds!
➔ A coloring book app with 50 exquisite drawings of fun topics including animals, professions and landscapes
➔ It's an Artistic Springboard where some drawings are "incomplete" so children, guided by voice over instructions, can creatively interact with the drawings!
➔ A photo decorator where kids can draw over your own photos and decorate them with stickers!

✓ Free Letter & Number tracer and fun textured backgrounds!

Digital coloring books can be entertaining, but they can instill passivity in kids. Tap and a color field automatically fills a shape. Or, paint and the app keeps your color stroke within the lines for you. This gets boring fast. Apps that only offer blank pages for 'free drawing' can be a little intimidating for the youngest children. And many so-called activity books are too ambiguous or too difficult for little children to decode on their own, leaving them asking: "Dad, what do I draw now?" and "Mom, what am I supposed to do here?"

Kids need to develop and improve their fine motor skills and creativity. Color & Draw's drawings are simple enough for young children to explore drawing and colors, to go beyond realism and to expand the limits of their imagination. The voice prompt invitations give kids autonomy over the app. Each illustration presents an opportunity to enhance both skills and imagination. And, of course, to have fun with art making.

★ 50 cute and smart, custom illustrations
★ Multiple brush strokes with size and opacity controls!
★ Zoom!
★ Collapsible tool bar!
★ Fun, age-appropriate themes: animals, professions, sports and natural settings
★ Save drawings to the in-app Art Gallery or your device's photo album to share by email
★ An in-app Art Store with more coloring pack collections!
★ Import images or take pictures to draw over them
★ 50 custom voice-over invitations
★ Real finger painting. Not the classic "the-machine-fills-it-for-you" app engine!
★ Curated color palette. Enough colors choices for a full spectrum of artistic expression yet restricted so kids are not overwhelmed by too many options.
★ Eraser and unlimited 'undos'
★ Tons of fun backgrounds and textures
★ Professional grade rendering engine

Tipitap pushes the limits of traditional coloring apps harnessing the possibilities of touchscreen environments.

Learning fun. Fun learning.
