What you should know:
The classic color-by-number has been given a major makeover for the modern day. Children can color their way to learning with this engaging app that's so much more than just a coloring book.
Select from a variety of themed coloring pages to complete by numbers, uppercase letters or lowercase letters. Color complex shapes, like pyramids and overlapping rectangles, or world maps, which display information about the continents and countries as you color. The basic version starts at $0.99, but you can purchase additional coloring books, or get them all for $5.99. Accompany holiday-themed coloring books with the music of the season or shut off the songs for a strictly academic activity. Customize the voice-overs to introduce different languages, such as Spanish, French and German. Let kids who like to color outside the lines let loose and express themselves with freestyle coloring, painting and photo decoration.
Children can create their own self-portraits by framing a favorite photo and covering it with stickers or by painting silly features on their own face. The app is extremely intuitive, so kids can play with minimal intervention, and if they make a mistake, the shake-to-erase feature is a frustration-free way to start over.
