Inspire — Create Art, Paint, Draw & Sketch

By snowCanoe

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Available exclusively on the App Store, meticulously designed to be beautifully powerful and painstakingly engineered for the 64-bit CPU and multi-core GPU of iPhone — Inspire delivers an incredibly fast and realistic painting, drawing and sketching experience that you can take with you wherever you go and use whenever inspiration strikes.

Our proprietary painting engine Sorcery™, based on OpenGL, takes full advantage of the GPU to render brush strokes with brilliant 64-bit color, laser-sharp sub-pixel precision and insanely fast speed. While the strokes of a wet oil paint brush look beautiful on their own, the breathtaking blending effects of a dry brush will absolutely stun you. Graze the canvas with just a bit of pressure to add a subtle blur to your artwork or use stronger pressure to actually mix existing colors on the canvas together to create new ones.

With no instruction manual or handbook required, whether you are a beginner, expert or somewhere in-between, you will enjoy the simplicity and power of the most intuitive and compelling illustration app for iPhone, Inspire.

Customer Reviews

This App Needs Some Major Fixes

I enjoyed the app when I first got it, but now it crashes every five minutes, deletes all my progress, and just makes it really difficult and frustrating to use. Fix it soon, or I'll be contacting Apple to see about getting refunded for an app that has issues and hasn't had an update to fix said issues in a long time.

Great App!!

I have tried a few other coloring/ actual create your own art apps and this is far better!! This allows me the freedom to make art wherever I go. I find it much easier to use and colors blend better.

Works like a champ

I love this app! Fulfills all my artistic needs.
