This coloring app lets grown-ups experience the therapeutic joy of finger painting, using their own photo collection.

The Chromaldry coloring app bills itself as an "art therapy app." The app will take any photo from the user's smartphone and turn it into a unique coloring book page. The coloring app divides the photo into small, black and white sections. Then it offers the user a paint palette, where they can use swirling finger motions to blend their own colors. Once they've created the perfect shade, the amateur smartphone artiste can take it and apply it to the coloring page. Repeat this process over and over again, and eventually you've got a fully painted piece of coloring app art. Users can even take a selfie and turn it into a profile picture-worthy work of art.
