Procreate is the most powerful sketching, painting, and illustration app ever designed for a mobile device. This complete artist’s toolbox helps artists and designers create beautiful sketches, inspiring paintings, and stunning illustrations anywhere. Procreate features groundbreaking canvas resolution, 128 incredible brushes, advanced layer system, and is powered by Silica: the fastest 64-bit painting engine on iOS.
The app comes fully loaded with a set of tools such as pastels, pencils of various width and hardness, watercolors, oil, acrylic, and more. Files can be exported as PSD, PNG, or JPG, and photos can be imported as well.
Updates to Version 3.0.4 optimize the app for use with the iPad and Apple Pencil. Improvements include:
- Selecting brushes and layers with Apple Pencil was pretty difficult. It’s now been fixed so you can easily select them.
- Some changes in Procreate 3 meant that performance would get sluggish with long strokes, which have been fixed.
- No one really needs a pencil with an eraser at both ends, so Pencil by FiftyThree now draws like the real thing.
