A Color Story Now on Android!!!

Android AnnoucementAfter waaaay too long of a wait, we finally get to announce A Color Story is available on Android!!

We're so happy with how it turned out and can't wait to see what our Android friends make with the app!

It was quite the process getting here, and it took much longer than the matter of weeks we initially said in the announcement post here on ABM (so so sorry!). Our first Android developer on the project took a job at Google about halfway through, and finding a replacement set us much further behind schedule than we anticipated. However, our new developer is one of the best we've ever worked with. While it put us behind schedule, we ended up with an even better app in the end! 

And now it's time to CELEBRATE!!! You guys have no idea how excited we are today! 

Here's a quick overview of what it can do:

A Color Story on Android!!You can see the full capabilities in our app tour here! Or to see the app in action, here's a photo shot edited on an Android with just one filter. (Essentials > Pop)

2016-03-24 Flower, pad, coffeeThank you for hanging in there with us and checking in daily on the @acolorstory Instagram! We hope you love the app as much as we do. The app is free with in-app purchases. And for a limited time, there's a bonus pack of filters, Good Vibes, available for FREE! Now what are you waiting for? Go to the Google Play store!

Love, Elsie + Emma 

P.S. There will no doubt be some technical issues that crop up for a few of you with all the devices available out there. Please reach out through our support form with any challenges you're running into! The app is only optimized for Android phones, not tablets, and requires Android 4.1 or newer.

  • Best news today!! Downloaded the app and all the packs right away! Thanks for working so hard on this!

  • Hooray! Hooray!!! A thousand times hooray!!!

    I hope android users show you the same amount of love you received from the IOS version. Just know you have made THIS Android user so happy!


  • Eek! Downloading now and wishing Indy had fun walls like you all seem to find! πŸ™‚ Thank you!

  • Downloaded the app! Its working perfectly, super easy to use, and is SO FUN to play with I feel like a kid in a candy store πŸ™‚ my photo editing skills are pretty low tech, so I love how there are great filters to make it easy. Android loves you! πŸ˜€

  • I don’t think you realise how excited I am about this! I’ve been swooning over everyone’s photos for months on the hashtag, waiting for it to come out on Android! I’m literally downloading it right now! YAY!

  • I’m so over the moon about this! Already downloaded it, bought the filter packs, and edited a picture of pizza lol thanks for another great product ABM!

  • Yay! I was so bummed when you gals first posted about the Color Story since it wasn’t available on Android….until it said the Android version was coming soon!!!! So excited! Now to get back to playing with all the amazing filters…:-D

  • hmm..it won’t show up in my play store either..the link does work but will not download onto my phone (s6). Super excited for this app though (once the kinks are worked out;))!

  • I have Android 4.2 and downloaded the app, but unfortunately it’s not working well. Keeps freezing and locking up on my phone. I can’t switch between the filters quickly and it causes my phone to lock up. Not sure if it’s a glitch in the app or if it’s my phone.

  • Finally! Thank you guys so much, I’m downloading it right now and can’t wait to try it out πŸ˜€

  • Thank you so, so much… started downloading it the moment I got to know about its availability πŸ™‚ It’s simple but makes an impact, will bring so much more clear colors into our lives.

  • Lovely! Finally an easy to use app that can enhance my photographs for Android users! Thanks πŸ™‚

  • Was super exited as well as I am daily using the “A beautiful mess” app with succes and loving it. Although my mobile is running on Android version 4.2.2 the app is not working. I will keep my fingers crossed and try to be patient. Maybe the next update will help.

  • thank you guys, I downloaded it yesterday and LOVE it so much! greetings from vienna, austria πŸ™‚

  • I was so excited, but it doesn’t pass the crop page… tried to download later after some bug fixing but it still doesn’t work….

  • I can’t find the app in the play store. When I click on the link above, I get a message saying it’s not available in my country. Help please!

  • We needed to push A Color Story for Android back into beta temporarily, while we sort through some major bugs that didn’t come through on our initial testing. If you’d like to be added to the beta group, contact us at [email protected] from your Google Play email.

    Sorry for the inconvenience! -Elsie

  • I can’t find the app in the play store! Has it been removed?

  • Oh Boo! I can’t find it in the play store and the bitly link redirects me to a page that says it’s not available in my country, but I’m in California.

  • It says “not found” on mine, even with the links above. Cry.

  • It says that I can’t download it in Australia? Is this correct? If so, are there plans to bring it to Oz?

  • H
    ey there every one…is there a new link or way for me to find this app!?!?!

  • Hi. It looks like a great app! When will it be available internationally? I got the message that it has not been released in my country yet …

  • I have been waiting for this app for well, forever. I’m so bummed to hear it’s not available in my country yet:( Is this true for iOS too? I am currently based in South Korea.

  • I’ve been waiting for the Android version ever since I got a new phone, but it says it’s not available in my country! I live in the United States so I’m really not sure why it’s not available…? Was the app pulled from the Google Play store?

  • Great & congratulations! Guys. I downloaded your apps and its working perfect in low space. Nice.

  • Android is no double most powerful and most loved mobile os for android device users, you wrote such a great concept of android colors. Keep it up.
