My Coloring Book Free is a straightforward app with numerous coloring pages and a decent palate of colors, though few actual creative options. Instead of actively coloring in the pages, you just tap an enclosed space with whatever color you have selected and it is instantly filled.

Adobe Systems has launched a beta version to try out changes to its color-picker Kuler service, including the restoration of an earlier feature to extract dominant colors from photos.

Some painters are born talented, others are manufactured that way. The WaterColorBot is a painting robot that handles all the brushwork for you. Its creators are raising funds on Kickstarter to offer the kit to the masses.
The bot doesn't have a creative mind of its own. It can either take vector artwork and paint it, or follow along as you sketch in real time. It uses regular watercolor paints, the kind you probably remember from childhood, and regular paper.… Read more
