Color-mixing and drawing app is clunky, not intuitive.

Is It Any Good?

ICRAYONMAKER is a good start to a great concept: mixing your own colors to use for drawing pictures. Kids can create and name their own crayon colors, then use those colors to draw pictures with different media. The app is not immediately intuitive, however, and there are no built-in instructions. Also, it is clumsy and time consuming to change colors while drawing. Also, since the only colors that can be used in the drawings are ones that have already been created, sometimes kids will have to pause their artwork to create the colors they need to finish their pictures. Once kids have built up a decent crayon library and learned how to use the app, however, they should be able to have quite a bit of fun with it and share their custom artwork.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
