What's New

Version 4.0.10

We're fast approaching some really exciting releases. This is one last stop to pick up the new iPad, and keep your engines running smoothly.

• Sometimes your safety features would fail you and Undo would stop working. It's important to us that you feel safe.
• Layers sometimes merged without looking, losing layer opacity and layer masks. We've taught them to check their mirrors.
• Inserted images will no longer cause corrupted or blank exports.
• If you quit the app while within a document the Gallery thumbnail will still update.
• Like a child forgotten at sports practice, inserted image layers were occasionally left behind in imported PSDs. We promise it won't happen again. Yes, we can stop for icecream.
• Galleries jammed with artworks will now load as fast as that really fast car you like, instead of another slow kind of car that you don't like.
• Big things in the pasteboard won't cause roadblocks in Create Canvas.

We're working on some hot modifications to Procreate, and can't wait to greatly enhance your ride. We'd love to hear about your journey so far, so please leave a review on the App Store.

The Professional App for Artists


I started using Procreate back in 2011 on the iPad 2. Back then it was an impressive app, despite only being able to finger paint at the time. Savage kept updating it. Changing it. With each iteration it got better and closer to what it felt it was trying to be; a professional app for artists.

Nowadays, professionals are using it to create amazing work on iPad Pro with Apple Pencil. It’s crazy how far the app and the iPad have come. Everything from movie posters used in theaters and on billboards (Logan), storyboards for films (It), to fine art, comics, and concept art. If you want to do professional work on iPad Pro, this is your app. It may lack a tool here and there, but everything it has is tweaked to near perfection. Blazing fast, smooth as glass, and full of power. Not many developers in the App Store so obviously put in this much work and care. Procreate is what you get when a team wants to make the best thing they possibly can.

With Procreate 4 we get yet another amazing update at no additional cost. I feel like I’ve robbed Savage at this point. I paid some small amount of money back in 2011 and what I have now is worth hundreds. I hope they’re making plenty of money, because they deserve it, and I’d be crestfallen if Procreate was no longer around. Keep doing your best down under, guys and gals. We appreciate it.

Amazing, even for the novice


I am new to drawing, taking my first lessons. I used Linea for the first 2 weeks, and I still love it for it's simplicity, with just enough options to make it a very fun and useful sketch app. Yet, I soon yearned for more options, and downloaded Procreate. At first, I missed the great simple options and controls of Linea, but by day 2 the power and beauty (yes, well functioning apps are a thing of beauty to me) came through and I only use Procreate now. While I am practicing beginning methods of sketching, I am also learning Procreate, which in itself offers many AHA moments when I learn how to do something I initially could not figure out.
With that said, if you are reading this and thinking of buying Procreate, do not hesitate... this app is simply amazing... even for the beginner! Part of the joy is the terrific online support and forums. I have not had a question I could not readily find an answer to by searching the web. This app is worth so much more than the $4.99... kudos to the Procreate team and all the amazing users who have enabled me to find answers to my questions.
