Coloroos 1.0 Released

We at Rise Software are really proud to announce the release of Coloroos 1.0 on Google Play!

Coloroos is a fun drawing application that is both simple and safe for children to use.

Safety first. The application offers the opportunity to add parental control so that you can be reassured when your children use your device. There are two modes for parental control. The first mode consists of entering a PIN code and activating the “Lock in drawing” function. The second mode consists of an alarm sound of your choice and activating the vibration. This way if the child presses your device’s home button, the alarm will trigger. In addition to parental controls, Coloroos has no access to the Internet and contains no advertising.

But also fun! Besides drawings on a blank canvas, you can also draw on coloring books or on your photos while the original photos will remain untouched.

The coloring books have a minimum of twenty-five pages and are full of fun drawings and simple games that every child will love. You can also save your drawings and share them on social networks or with your friends and family.

Since the holidays are approaching, we have a special Christmas coloring book! This book is filled with drawings and easy games in the theme of winter and Christmas. Children will have lots of fun by coloring Santa Claus or Mr. Snowman and playing simple games.

Coloroos is available for free on Google Play and will always be free. It will never have any ads, links or have access to the internet.

The Christmas coloring book is available on Google Play for USD $0.99.

The free Meet Pocket coloring book will soon be available on Google Play.

We sincerely hope that everyone will have lots of fun using Coloroos.

Happy Holidays!

Coloroos SDK released today


After many months of hard work Coloroos is on the verge of being released to the public. Version 1.0 RC1 was delivered to the beta group and is looking great. I’m very happy with the feature set and the app looks great! And Although the app can stand alone, it’s much better with coloring books. We already have a few ready to put on the market, but we’re waiting for more. I want at least 5 full coloring books to be available when Coloroos is released. And that’s where you come in!

Starting today you too can make Coloroos coloring books that you can distribute on Google play or any other market where Coloroos will be available. We’ve had many requests to allow people to create coloring books and now your wish has come true. Artists love having their art appreciated and nothing is better than having a child appreciate and play with your drawings.

To get started you can find the SDK documentation here under the SDK tab. I have created and published a free SDK that allow any artist to easily create and distribute coloring books. The SDK documentation contains all the information required. You’ll find all the code that you need, image templates, the licensing agreement and more.

I’m taking all the steps necessary to make Coloroos an awesome place for kids: safe, fun, easy to use. And also a great app for grown-ups with many tools, sharing options, and import options. The next versions will bring:

* more settings to make the environment even more secure for kids
* toddler, child and teen modes
* more tools, more strokes, more colors

Coloroos is going to be awesome! Come join us and bring your artistic talent!
