Nationwide --  Mover and shaker Latoya Nicole is an innovator, owner of Entrepreneurs Color Too, and the creator of Color XO: A New Stress Relieving Coloring Book App for the Culture. The free app features retro-style pixel images that you can color-by-number, and it's full of black culture vibes ranging from brown skin girls to curly locs and fros!

"Filling the diversity gap is what I love to do," said Latoya. "New mobile apps are being developed every day and they continue to impact every facet of our lives.

From the Colorfy app which allows you to tap and color for relaxation to Faceapp which allows you to transform your photo and changing the selfie game forever, the possibilities are endless for mobile technology. By introducing coloring apps that celebrate differences in others, parents and children can see images that look like them.

Just as with books and TV shows, we should see ourselves depicted in apps. We have a need for greater diversity, representation and inclusion in the app industry and I just decided to pull up a seat at the table."

The app images are inspired by original coloring pages from Latoya's adult coloring book series, which includes popular images from her bestselling books like 24 Shades of Business. Now, you have the option to choose whether you want to color using physical books and crayons or by using Latoya's digital coloring app to color on-the-go. In the coming months, additional features and characters will be added. The app is available for iOS and Android platforms and is free to download.
