Procreatefor iOS



Plenty of beautiful brushes

Procreate is an art suite available for your iPhone that has many unique options and useful features. It has full layering support and a fast engine for digital painting.

A simple program for picky artists

Procreate is a powerful art studio that’s filled with features and creative tools. It’s easy to create amazing art with this app.

This app is a powerful art studio that supplies you with almost any tool you can think of. Many available alternatives don’t have as many utilities as this app.

Procreate can support up to 4K resolution. You can take advantage of this feature and create art projects with one of the highest levels of quality out there. However, you’ll need one of the latest devices before you can set the app to draw with such high resolutions.

When you’re looking for speed, or feel more comfortable drawing on your computer, you can connect a keyboard to your device. With this feature you can use a list of keyboard shortcuts instead of manually searching for each tool or feature.

Available for your use is one of any art application’s livelihoods, the brush. There are over a hundred beautifully designed options available for use. Each of these offers a different feel or texture for your drawing. Some of the extra features that are available are the eraser, a smudge option, vector text, and filters. There’s also a frame by frame animation available for use.

The only real flaw you can find in Procreate is that it forces you to edit each layer individually. Where other applications, like Photoshop, shine is through multiple layer modifications. This is a limiting factor for almost any project.

Where can you run this program?

Procreate is available for iPads running iOS 13.2 or later.

Is there a better alternative?

No. Procreate is one of the best virtual art studios available. However, if you want to get it on your iPhone, you’ll need to download Procreate Pocket, a smaller and sleeker version. Astropad is a decent alternative.

Our take

Procreate is an amazing art studio for your iPad. It has hundreds of brushes and a variety of other tools for you to use. It has a simple interface and a few tutorials to guide your hand. The addition of a keyboard and shortcut support makes it easier than ever to make quick modifications to your work.

Should you download it?
