What's New in Version 4.0.1

This is Procreate 4. The biggest update to Procreate ever. Powered by a new and incredibly advanced painting engine, packed full of game changing iOS 11 features, and combined with an elegant, powerful interface. It's the same Procreate you know and love: rebuilt, refined, and revolutionized.

• Astonishing new painting engine
Built with technologies like Metal 2, Swift 4, and Accelerate, Silica M has been designed to extract the full power of iPad to provide incredible color depth, fluid and accurate painting, and stunningly fast performance.

• All new Smudge
Use any brush to smudge and mix paint with extraordinary speed and fidelity. With the power of the Silica M engine, blending colors in Procreate is now an incredible 250 times more accurate.

• Wet painting
Wet yourself with Procreate's new Metal-powered engine that makes mixing paint incredibly accurate and blazingly fast. Procreate now gives you the ability to mix and combine paint on the canvas in all new ways for stunning texture and color blending.

• iOS11 Drag and Drop
File management can be a real drag, but no more! If you need to download a custom brush, just drag it into Procreate. Need to quickly email a layer? Just drag it straight into Mail. Need to back up your work? Grab all your artworks from the Gallery and drop them into your favorite cloud service. It's going to completely change how you work with Procreate.

• Layer Masks
Everyone looks more attractive in a mask (that's why they have those parties) and so will your layer. Use masks to non-destructively erase parts of a layer, so you can modify your image without losing any of the original content, and you won't know who you're going home with.

• New Brushes interface
The all new brushes interface gives you instant access to your entire brush library. Navigate hundreds of brushes easily, and instantly import or share multiple brushes at once with iOS 11 Drag & Drop.

• Brush Blend Modes
You asked for it (about 4 years ago) and you finally have it. All existing blend modes can be applied to any brush; plus a brand new mode for those who like to paint from Behind.

• Bleed setting in Brushes
Using the pressure of your Apple Pencil, Bleed lets you control how much of your brush texture hits the canvas for sharper strokes than ever before.

• Better Sketching
Using Apple Pencil Tilt with Sketching brushes has a new level of realism and responsiveness, and all Procreate's drawing tools have been refined for a smoother and more realistic experience.

• Rebuilt color interface
All four color selection modes have been neatly ordered into tabs, allowing you to quickly jump between picking colors, managing swatches, and entering precise color values.

• Redesigned Adjustments
Now you can actually see your canvas while performing complex image adjustments with the new interface design.

• All new Gallery
The all-new Procreate 4 Gallery works seamlessly with the new iOS11 Files App to instantly access your files across all of your locations. It's easy to manage thousands of canvases, scroll with blazing speed, and neatly order your artwork into Stacks. And this is just the beginning. We've got lots more in store.

• P3 Wide Color
Cause pleasurable discomfort to your eyeballs with extremely saturated artworks. Procreate now fully supports P3 Wide Colour on compatible devices, including import, export, and video.

• Hundreds of refinements
Nearly every pixel in Procreate has been polished to perfection to make your workflow faster and easier. Including the new AirPlay Canvas feature, a better Copy Paste menu, more canvas information, import and export support for TIFF, significant improvements to performance and stability, and over two hundred other features and refinements, Procreate 4 is everything you love but better.

Worth it++

I first purchased this app a few years ago when it first became available. I recently returned when I fell in love all over again when I experienced this with the 1st gen iPad Pro + Apple Pencil. I immediately ran to the nearest store and purchased the 2nd gen iPad and my own pencil for this app alone. I have Wacom products yet this app by far has been my best experience with mobile art creation. I rant and wave about this to anyone who will listen.

On top of that, the dedication to this product by the Savage team is apparent and I will purchase products with their name on it without question going forward.

Feedback: it would be great to see the %change of opacity on the layers menu. Right now, I have to enter edit mode to see my adjustment values.

Works incredibly well with iPad Pro and Pencil!

I love this app! It’s devilish powerful, fun to explore, and version 4 adds a lot of new features while also improving performance drastically, by switching over to Metal. The Procreate developers listen to the users, and implement features over time, so Procreate keeps heading toward the “ideal” of a tablet drawing application with every update.

If you like to draw, or would like to start practicing and learning, Procreate is the perfect artist studio filled with every digital tool you need, while still being user-friendly and offering pleasant surprises every time you explore. It’s like taking a trip to Disney, without having to spend a fortune!

Great, though rewrite slowed down delivering user value

As a software engineer, I know how exciting it is to rewrite things from scratch. This update improves a lot of behind the scenes aspects of the app, without greatly morphing the user experience.

The new inking is a bit jarring at first, it feels like laying rope down more than it does drawing at times, but it is very responsive... !

The new stacking is feels half-baked, because art is stacked, but there is no pinch to go back after picking a stack, unlike Paper by FiftyThree. It moves away from an “app icons and app folder” skeumorphism into an better, but incomplete paper stack one.

Personally, I would prefer the app developers focus on user impacting features: the ability to add text on art, the ability to resize images, the ability to render boxes and align them with text, layers ( I want to use Procreate to doodle webcomics, but sadly the experience is incomplete! )

That said, this is a great update, and there are a lot of features left for me to discover (e.g.,the layer improvements are a welcome change!)

Keep up the good work, and regards!
