Adult colouring books are the rage right now and little wonder why. When the hustle and bustle of life get overwhelming, nothing beats sitting down in a quiet place and playing with colours.

Now, what if you could take that feeling everywhere with you? The pigments app gives users that flexibility and freedom. With the app, you can pull out your phone anytime you need a break and get colouring.

Pigments was created by Pixtie, a group of artists and creators in 2015 and has seen several updates since then. Although there are many colouring apps, Pigments is a favourite among users. It is easy to use and you can get access to many features in the free version.

How to get started with Pigments

The first step is to download the app from your preferred app store. This could be the Play Store for Android devices and the App Store for iOS.

Next, tap the app open. A beautiful screen will appear, tap Continue.

The app will ask you to select the types of artwork you enjoy colouring. Next, it will ask for your favourite palettes.

After that, you get to choose the brushes you would like to try. Once you’re done, you will be presented with three payment options. These are weekly, monthly and yearly subscriptions.

These are for Pigment Premium, which unlocks even more brushes and over 5k colouring pages. Users get access to exclusive colour palettes and can save custom palettes.

You can skip the premium version and go straight to the free app, which has great features. You can then choose from several images and get colouring.

When colouring, you can use the fill tool to paint. You can also use the two-finger pinch to move the picture around or zoom in.

The Pigments app is simple to use with a clean interface. Once you download the app, you can get painting in very little time.

System requirements

The app was launched as an IOS app and is available on the App Store for iPhones, iPads and iPod Touch. You will need a recent IOS version as older versions are not supported by the app.

If you want to run the Pigment app on your Android device, you need to download the APK from Aptoide or any preferred platform.

Top-rated adult colouring apps

As we mentioned before, adult colouring books are in popular demand. So, there are many options for those who like to colour.

One option is Colorfy, which is available on IOS and Android devices. It also runs a subscription model like Pigments. However, Colorfy does not have as many painting tools and textures as Pigments.

Another colouring app is Painting by Numbers, which is a lot of fun if you like numbers. The app has a premium and a free version that is ad-supported. If you’re not a fan of ads, then you should skip this one.

If you like 3D images, then you should try Recolour. That is a fun app that animates the colours you’ve painted. You can paint 2D images or 3D objects for a different painting experience. The app is subscription-based with a 7-day trial period.

Subscription costs aside, and the clear bias against Android, we really like Pigments. It is clean, fresh and intuitive.



  • A fun way to relieve stress and anxiety.
  • The app is easy to use.
  • Access to thousands of colouring pages.
  • Limited colour palettes with free version.
  • Not available on the Google Play Store.
  • The premium version is expensive.
