Hi, Kjetil. I've tested your code - and it works just fine.

Your code doesn't contain a closing curly brace - probably you posted not the whole body of the function and you are setting .tintColor somewhere later to a fixed color?

.tintColor did not work for me either but .setTitleColor did.

    @IBAction func loadFact() {
        let randomColor = colorModel.getRandomColor()
        view.backgroundColor = randomColor
        funFactButton.setTitleColor(randomColor, forState: .Normal)
        funFact.text = factModel.getRandomFact()

button color doesn't change for me either. (Using Xcode 8.0)
