Procreate Pocket Positive Reviews
Conflicted feelingsI’m not sure what to feel towards Procreate Pocket. I’ve recently purchased the app on my iPhone in hopes that I would be able to use the same wonderful drawing app I know and love without having to carry around a huge iPad Pro wherever and whenever I want to draw, but I’m struggling to find any situation where I’ve ever felt comfortable using the application on the iPhone. I feel like I’ve had too high of an expectation from the iPad app to really see where the pocket version can shine but I cannot say that it would ever be a viable alternative to the iPad version let alone be some form of replacement. It’s lack of features that the iPad has like the extra drawing guides, liquify and quick shape are some of the biggest features that I would have really liked to have seen on Pocket, but sadly aren’t included as of making this review. I really want this app to succeed, but right now it’s simply unusable since I’m so used to the iPad version. I would also HIGHLY recommend some sort of cloud syncing if that isn’t already a feature so I can work on my projects across devices. Seeing as this isn’t an option right now from what I’ve seen, this is a huge bummer because It takes away one of the big reasons I wanted to purchase it in the first place..Version: 2.0.2
It’s a pretty good app overall but I do have a few questions...I honestly love this app I love how free a user can be do to the amount of art supplies/options on here, it’s really helping me improve my art.
I’m also pretty new to the whole thing still, there is a lot to learn on this app. I have a few concerns though, first off when I got the app I was able to make a messy circle into a perfect one just by holding down, but now I can only make a straight line not any shapes. I researched about my problem and I read that all you have to do is turn on automatic lines under prefs, I looked but that wasn’t an option...
Also I accidentally deleted the app a few weeks ago but when I downloaded it again all my art was gone I was devastated. Is there a way to get my art back If not whatever I can make more art but still? ^ - ^
(I recommend that there is a sign in for your pocket procreate app :if it isn’t one already: so that your progress will be saved even if you delete this app from your device, I feel it would prove to be most beneficial for users)
So ya if anyone could help me out a bit with my listed set backs or maybe give me a few tips on how to improve my knowledge about this app I would highly appreciate it and thank you.❤️.Version: 3.0.5
UntouchableProcreate Pocket, is not better than Procreate, and this is just because of screen size. Besides that procreate does everything you would want in a drawling app and more. It has such clean and unique movements and animations that capture you into the drawling, without sacrificing features. I originally thought that you couldn’t fill in anything, but all you have to do is just drag the color into your fillable area. How amazing! But by far the best feature of Pocket is for sure layering. Procreate allows you to layer your drawings, so if you do something on one layer, it doesn’t effect the other layers. You can delete, duplicate, merge, lots other, and my most favorite feature of all of these things is where you can drawl on two layers, and then crop the second layer into the borders on the bottom layer with in a click called clipping mask. You will never find a free drawing app with all the capabilities, so just start with pocket! This is by far the best iPhone mobile drawling app of all times, and I’ve downloaded 23 different apps. Start with procreate pocket and end wi the procreate pocket. Cause once you get it for it’s low price, it won’t ask for anything else again. This app is perfect..Version: 3.0.7
Finally! A Robust Drawing App for Phones!Coming from Auto Desk SketchBook, it has been a very pleasant experience! The amount of brushed and utility are insane, and the option to import your own brushes is a very nice addition. Undo and Color Picking gestures have been very easy to memorize and adapt, ui is clean and small leaving enough room to draw even with your fingers! Had high expectations from hearing that Procreate on the iPad is highly regarded as the best drawing app for its platform. Two things that i have a problem with is that if you are using an iPhone 10 or above, the navigation bar at the bottom of the screen seems to be disabled after a couple seconds when Procreate opens, you have to swipe up twice on it to activate it again to be able to leave the app or switch to a different one, it can be very bothersome when trying to swap between a reference photo and the actual app. Another thing is that the app does not seem to have a Dark Mode, it is very hard on the eyes at full brightness, and having the background behind the canvas be white is distracting, it would be nice to have a Dark Mode. But the app is overall worth it and had I had a good time using it..Version: 3.0.7
Awe-droppingTo start out, I’m not much of an artist. But I'm still interested in art. When I saw this app and the amount of features it had set in front of me to use, I couldn’t wait to buy it. It has amazing things and textures to use whenever needed. Calligraphy has been something I’ve been focusing on and it has plenty of styles for that as well! I would give this app a 7/5 but of course they don’t have that. It’s SO worth the 5 dollars you find in the couch. The developers of the game thought of every single thing one artist might make and set the tools to prepare them for it right in front of you. You can modify, warp, touch up, and so much more. I can’t keep myself off my phone anymore! All I have to say is thanks so much developers. This app is a life-saver and I don’t know why you haven’t bought it yet cause your missing out!
(One minor problem- I noticed that I will accidentally make a mistake in my work. However, there is no back arrow, or at least that I know of, that is available. If there is I can’t seem to find it. However there is a lot of area of things to learn about this app and I’m still getting used to it.).Version: 4.0.3
Excellently executed Drawing AppI’m very impressed by how well the developers designed this app. The interface starting out is incredibly simple an easy to navigate. Just tap with two fingers to undo, three to redo, and draw around with your finger. There’s a size slider and an opacity slider to the left or right, easy to use and highly unobtrusive. There’s also a couple icons for a brush, eraser, color, etc at the top. I can’t imagine a more compact and effective interface.
Then you can go into the brush icon and select from a bunch of very beautiful brush types, including paint themed ones that are designed to look very realistic and are very fun to work with. There are a bunch of brush options for smoothing and opacity and everything to play around with and really skink your teeth into. The company also has a lot of help videos and such on their insta or on google.
But the reason this app is really great is just how convenient it is. You can open it up and get drawing at any time in any place, wherever inspiration strikes. I’m excited to use it more and see all that is possible with it. Thanks for making this high quality app so practical..Version: 3.0.7
Thank You Very Much :DI'm so very grateful for this amazing new 4.0 Procreate Pocket update. I was already thrilled when you guys brought so many of the iPad Procreate features over to this Pocket edition not that long ago it seemed. Yet, I'm just ecstatic now with you giving us even more of them. Really, you gave us all of them it looks like to me. Thanks a million!
It's very hard to see much of difference between the iPad and iPhone version of Procreate anymore and that's something I've always dreamed of and wished for on this iPhone edition. To be able to finally have the awesome Animation Assist, the full brush creator, which is truly stunning I believe, you can even sign your brush creations. Also to have all of the many, many other new features is so wonderful I think. I'm flabbergasted by all the new items brought over to Pocket, thank you, you guys are the best ❤️.
Again, Savage Interactive, you have my sincere thanks and gratitude for this newest update and for all of the hard work and time you no doubt put into bringing all of these amazing features over to the iPhone app. Thanks for everything and God bless all of you at S.I..Version: 4.0
One of the best drawing apps for iPhoneIt’s a very powerful app but perhaps it’s UI could be better, after using it constantly for some days it would be awesome to see: 1. A way to change the position of Size and Opacity sliders (like at the other side of the screen, or at the top or bottom of the screen) so they don’t interfere every two minutes. 2. In Spanish, the “Done” buttons are replaced by “Ok” this makes the -hit box- of the button very small, so we have to tap it many times to successfully touch it, “Ok” could be replaced by “Listo” which is longer and a better translation of “Done”. 3. When tapping a layer (and nothing else) immediately return to the canvas, that would make the experience much faster. 4. When changing the Opacity of a layer we need to see the layer to know when to stop, this was possible in old versions. 5. When selecting a Modify tool, it would be nice to get a long list with all the sub tools available, that would cut the number of taps needed to select a tool from 2 to 1. 6. An option to disable transparency in the upper bar, or make the app captable of seeing if “Reduce transparency” on iOS is turned on..Version: 4.0.4
Not that bad :) just some a minor inconvenienceI’ve been using procreate pocket for a couple of months now and I had no problems with the app! It runs very smoothly and it’s helped me improve throughout these months! At first I never understood how to use the app but after awhile I soon got very used to using it! Then once iPhone released a new software update (14.1) procreate pocket has some issues. Whenever I opened a canvas, it took at least a minute or 2 before it was fully loaded and then turned black but then I could work on the canvas. I did that to each of my pieces and I found it bizarre for it never has done that to me before. I have tried restarting my phone (multiple times) and checked if I had enough storage (and I did) but nothing seemed to worked. I deleted the app and reinstalled it back and everything worked smoothly until I added a few more canvas to be sure it was working. Overall, it’s a lovely app I just find it an inconvenient since I’m so used for my canvas to be all loaded (like a few seconds) and not take a few minutes. Thank you for your time..Version: 3.0.7
Love this AppUpdate: Procreate pocket is only for the iPhone not the iPad. Get the real version for the iPad. I also read one review saying the app is only for editing photos? That is not true, procreate pocket is a drawing app not a photo editing app. Another user said the layers don’t work, I have had no problems with several layers. Download this app, it wins the competition.
As someone who is new to procreate I didn’t have any real expectations on what to expect. I don’t have an iPad, but a lot of my friends have procreate for the iPad. The stuff I have seen them create is mind blowing. I have tried several other drawing apps, mostly Adobe Draw or Adobe sketch. I find their user interface clunky, with limited brushes and gestures. With procreate the UI is beautiful. Easy to understand menus, the ability to share in a variety formats and the nice haptic feedback confirmations. One area I have had difficulty with is moving “shapes” using the transform tool. After they are moved they become jagged. Another suggestion would the ability to rotate brush direction and shape. But thank you all for a great app!.Version: 3.0.6
Feeling ecstatic with this new update 4.0I have been procreate user for years now. First of all kudos for the entire time for a job well done. You guys have been amazing and leading developers in the industry, who always listens to user requests and try to bring life to them in every update as possible as you can, after being used to procreate on iPad Pro, I kinda felt unhappy about pocket app and uninstalled it for some time now.
After hearing again on media about pocket, I reinstalled pocket app today and it literally blew my mind. You guys are so amazing that you bought life to this app having all the same functionality as iPad Pro, now I feel like I can potentially use it all the time whenever I don’t have my iPad Pro. Granted iPad Pro have bigger screen and have Apple Pencil, but using pocket on my iPhone 12 Pro Max bigger screen making me feel ecstatic and bringing boundless joy to my heart. I can’t wait to see, what the team is planning for all future updates, ‘you guys ROCK’, keep up the good work. Please accept my sincere THANKS from the bottom of all my heart. 🥰😄.Version: 4.0.1
GoodThis app is a really good app. For example, changing your brush size/opacity is really easy, there are sliders on the side. They kind of get in the way and its annoying when you accidentally change the brush size, but they're extremely easy to get to. However, changing layer opacity is kind of hard. You have to click on layers, click on the layer you wanna use and then you have to click the 'N' and click opacity. But, the lines don't lag when you move it, like they do in IbisPaint X, i think that's really nice. I don't like the layer limits, though. I tried to make a short animation of my character changing colors, but it said i could only use 19 layers. Using the selection tool is extremely easy though. You have to click the words 'Modify' next to the arrow that takes you to your gallery. you click the 'S' next to the magic wand, and just draw. I love how there are like 3 options for the color wheel, and palletes. You can put in hex codes, too. Hex codes are alot easier than taking a picture, uploading it, and taking the color from the picture.
Thank you for reading this. -Kazunii.Version: 3.0.7
Good app, could use some featuresI’ve been using ibisPaint X for a while now, and their tools and UI aren’t as good of quality as Procreate Pocket. However, there are some features this app could use, and some might just be something I’m not sure how to do yet. Anyway, while I was drawing my first piece, I got to the coloring and noticed that I couldn’t find a blending tool. I know there is a smudging tool, but it doesn’t have the same effect. Blending is a huge part of a lot of artwork, and not just of my own. I know there is a blur filter, but creating a new layer, drawing in one thing that needs to be blended, and using the filter isn’t as efficient as just having a blending tool on hand. Besides, sometimes I just need one side of a shape blended, not the entire thing.
Another thing I noticed was that you can’t change the type of layer you’re using (multiply, add, etc.). These features are vital when shading and adding highlights. This may just be something I’m not sure how to do yet, though.
Overall, I would recommend the app, but it is missing some things..Version: 3.0.7
Great, for the mostpartI recently purchased this app and have been enjoying it so far! I really love the endless possibilities in terms of customizing your brushes and creating your own palettes. However, I’ve been running into one small issue: functionality. The app randomly crashes without warning. It doesn’t freeze, or lag, it just crashes. I never know when it’s coming, so I’m constantly frustrated, having to re-open the app and go back to my artwork over and over. My phone does not have any storage issues, and none of my other apps ever crash like this. I’m concluding it must be an issue with the app itself. I have an iPhone 7. Hopefully this issue is fixed(especially if I’m not the only one having it), because it is a small one, and the app is great otherwise!
Edit: I have updated my phone to see if that would solve the issue, but the app is crashing twice as much now. This is definitely proving to be an issue that I can’t avoid, and I’m afraid I’m going to refrain from using the app until an update is available..Version: 2.0
Disappointed. Could have been better. Way below my expectation.I have the Ipad version of this app. I love the Ipad version. I thought the phone and pad versions are same and I am so confused why I have to buy two separate apps for both my ipad and iphone. I was so wrong. I waited for a long time to get my hands on this version. I have to say it lacks many functions. It is way too simplistic. It does not have stamps and other illustrations. You have no way to control and manage the brushes (different shapes and sizes of one single brush style.) There's only three pages of color swatch as oppose to infinite pages in ipad version (Ipad version also comes with a full basic color swatch). There's no line of symmetry and grid function. It lacks way too many functions the ipad version have and the difference is too great. I am greatly disappointed. Couldn't you just make an app the same for both ipad and iphone? Ibispaint did it, why couldn't you. Ibispaint went from simple interface to very useful art app with full set of digital and manga tools and on top of that FREE. For now I will stick to Ibispaint for iphone. I am too disappointed..Version: 1.6.3
Great.. BUTPROS: i love this app. i make twitch emotes and just started doing so. that being said, i don’t have much experience with app editing but i have tried adobe draw, auto desk, and a couple more. they were all pretty similar. not many brush selections, has a learning curve, and just doesn’t have all the setting/features and stuff i wish it did. but once i tried procreate pocket, with a few videos i was able to learn the majority of what i can do. it has great interface, easily understandable features, and just not complicated at all while offering what what u need.
CONS: it’s 4.99$ which is a tiny bit on the pricey side for a drawing app considering there are many free ones. I’ll be drawing on separate layer (like any one would) but i didn’t draw it in the direction i want it. when i go to transform the layer, the lines because pixilated while the rest of the lines are buttery smooth. it’s very annoying because i sell my emotes to costumers so knowing that i could give them better quality if this app just had one little bug fix is upsetting, especially when my business is on the line.
overall the app is great, just wish it didn’t do that with my lines and wasn’t 5$ also wish there were options like “fill” because when i have to manually select the section i want to color, it gets pixelated.
please have an update or something that fixes these issues. other than that, it’s a great app with even greater potential :D.Version: 3.0.7
Surprised :)I was expecting this app to be a let down from the other reviews but I’m surprising on how much I love the app! It’s definitely not worth 5 dollars, maybe 3? But the only thing i would change or add would be a button to do the thing where you draw and it pops up all around the screen and copies when your finger/stylus touches the screen (idk how to explain it) and a blending brush and a regular blurring brush. If you could add these few things that would be amazing 😉 thanks!
Edit- So now that I’ve been on this app for longer, I got more time to experience the app. It’s actually plenty of fun and I do recommend it. It’s not the same as procreate, but really they never update this app anymore and they should, I really want a paint bucket brush to fill in one spot and if there is one please tell me where it is located, and also I still want a blending brush, but except for those thing I love the app! But please if the creator reads this review please do add in those two brushes please and thank you!.Version: 3.0.5
Awesome app but...What I love: I’ve been drawing on my phone for a while and I decided that I needed an upgraded app. I had been using other free apps that you had to pay for the full version to get everything. I saw a lot of people saying to get procreate (not pocket), so I decided to get it! It has a lot of brushes, and YOU CAN MAKE YOUR OWN!!!! I love that aspect of it!
To make it better: I love watching people draw and do tutorials, and I get so excited to do them. I go into the app and then I follow along until I get to a spot where it doesn’t have the same features of the iPad. Maybe you could make them the same and by doing that, make them the same price??
Overall: I’ve never drawn on an iPad or tablet, so this is a good experience. I highly recommend getting this if you ever want the best drawing app. 5 BUCKS FOR IT!! THAT IS AMAZING!! As I said before, I wish it had the same features of the iPad, but I would love to see what the creators can do next!!.Version: 3.0.7
I don’t know how I feel about the app yet.I am just not quite sure if it’s worth the money yet, I have only had the app for about a day but still, I spent money on it. I had VERY high expectations for this app because I have heard so many good things about it, so I paid the $3.99 for it (which I thought was a little expensive). My cousin got the app and absolutely loves it, not quite sure if it’s on an iPad or a phone. She has made some incredible art with it. I got it and was kinda disappointed because 1. I have no idea how to work the app (maybe include a tutorial or something?) 2. I wanted to recreate this art that my cousin made and just couldn’t figure out how to edit the photo.
I do have a question though- Why is the Procreate app for the iPad and the Procreate Pocket for the iPhone so different? I feel like I can’t really do anything on the Procreate pocket. I like doing lettering and stuff but I can’t fit it into the screen. Wouldn’t it be easier to just have the exact same app on 2 different devices?
I can’t do anything! Please help me!.Version: 3.0.7
What happened?I really like a lot of the new features. The new brush stroke options and the free form drawing are great. Then there are some issues with color changes and drawing a single straight line (which I confirmed after reading another review). But most importantly, WHAT HAPPENED TO THE UNDO AND REDO BUTTONS!? If they still exist, my bad. But it should not be this difficult to find them if they do still exist, so there’s still a problem. Then again, if those buttons truly have been removed: WHY!?!?!? Why would you make me completely erase something with ridiculous accuracy? It’s so easy to make an accidental mark. For literally any reason. Someone please tell me what’s happening here.
Update: I finally figured out that the undo is now a two finger double tap. Which is convenient for the most part, until I accidentally do it, then there’s no redo! Also, I should NOT have had to google how to do that. There should be something in settings or help or whatever with a guide for all the shortcuts. So I’m bumping it from 2 stars to 3..Version: 2.0
Great app to bring your imagination to life!I thought on this app for about a week. When I get the itch to draw it’s more convenient than having to look for a pencil or paper. Easy to use once you play around, the kids can use it too. I am so happy with my purchase but there is one major thing that needs introduced, the REASON for a 4 stars because I feel it’s a big one. Other than that I would have given a 5!
Do not close out your drawing if you are not finished. Ugh, I worked hours on a drawing and needed a break and closed out only to find I could not go back in and undo anything I had just done. Such a disappointment and a waste of time. The edit history really needs to be fixed. It’s enough to throw in the towel especially when you worked so hard on something to just trash it.
Overall if youre into this kind of thing, just buy it, you really will not regret it and it’s only $5. 👍🏻.Version: 3.0.7
Undo and redo ruined??I love this app, I really do, and while the new update added a lot of great new features, everything became MUCH more confusing. For a while I was really upset bc I thought the speedpaint feature had been removed, when in reality it had just been moved to a different part of the app. PLEASE add a tutorial or something to let users know where everything is. In addition, I find the new double-tap and triple-tap for undo and redo respectively to be more a hassle than a convenience... the buttons were much more simple and straightforward... sometimes I accidentally undo and it takes me a while to understand exactly how many undos and redos I’ve done... PLEASE PLEASE put the buttons back in, or at least make it an option somewhere to decide whether you want double-tap and triple-tap or buttons... I think implementing the option would make a lot of people happier with the update..Version: 2.0.2
Wonderful but...I really am liking Procreate and it’s very good to make different types of paintings and bring out your creatively amazing mind! But I have a few problems to share.. For example I don’t want to have to make every single thing a layer! A redo button would be good for it like FlipaClip and I think IbisPaint has one. Another is that we’re it says Previous colors you can make the previous color right? Well I am rather clumsy and I would click on the wrong color so I changed it to get another color then I need the color before the accident color. So basically I did Purple then didn’t mean to click on Orange so I thought I was done with Purple so I clicked on Red but then I needed Purple but on previous colors it only goes back one. So please for people like me can you make the previous color go back more then just one?!
Thank you for your time and I love you app!.Version: 3.0.7
Very GoodWhen I saw this app on an add I thought to myself “well I’ve always wanted to do art in anyway but my parents wouldn’t let me get painting supplies.” When I looked at the reviews I didn’t think it was good until I bought it on my iPhone and one reviewer said “I don’t like it because it doesn’t have all the features like on my iPad Pro.” And that reviewer got it on their iPhone. But the thing I really like about this app is that you can carry it on your phone and you don’t need internet to use it and you can be as comfortable as possible and still be able to make a masterpiece! I definitely recommend this on an iPad if you already use it on that and you switch to a phone you just have to get use to it because you can make ANYTHING you want!!! Highly recommend, very good! -Sophie.Version: 3.0.7
Not user friendly! Not what I expected.I wanted to be able to make image backgrounds transparent and this was not the app for it. There is no undo button. There are so many hidden features to this app and I find it one second and the next I cannot find it back. To put a text, I found it once and now I can’t find it gain. Maybe it will be good for watermarking my images for Etsy but a free trial would have been nice. I just wasted my money because this app didn’t do anything of what I hoped for. There needs to be an easier way to find the options for editing, better tool bar or something. It’s just too confusing. I’ve been an iPhone user for well over 10 years and I am not one to not understand an app or technology. This was just not my idea of how to create graphics or edit pictures to make them transparent. Maybe the iPad version is better but with how poorly this turned out for me there is no way I’d buy another app..Version: 3.0.7
Not updating??Hello, I have used procreate for quite a few years on my iPad, and I would like to use it on my phone but it does not show this new interface and such as advertised. It says I am fully updated but I don't see this white theme, more features, and more brushes. I seem to have a very old and simplified version with a black theme. I do not know why, Although I am using a iPhone 6 with version 10.3.2, and I am not willing to update it (since I dislike the newer features). Also there is another, REALLY BIG SUGGESTION of mine that I have, to increase the limit of 'Streamline', or what other programs may call Stability or Pen Correction, to help make even smoother lines. It's why I prefer to use other apps more for line art since I can create better lines there, although I like to then transfer my work to procreate for its great coloring abilities and many brushes, it would be a lot easier to use only one app for everything one day again..Version: 1.6.3
Update = Good but Not PerfectTo say I’m blown away with the update is an understatement! I love that there are soooo many new brushes and I’m enjoying experimenting with them all. I only have one issue: Importing both images and PSD files. Neither of them seem to work. Images does if I put it into an open canvas, and uploading files into said canvas makes it a simple, flat, one-layer image. But when it comes to importing from the main screen (both photos from the camera roll and PSD files from whatever app you use, trust me, I’ve tried a lot), where you get the layers and what not, the app straight up crashes. It’s extremely frustrating, especially because I’m so used to Procreate as a whole. If this gets fixed, I’ll be switching over to it as my full time creation app. If not... whelp, there’s other apps such as Sketchbook that can open the files I need, properly..Version: 2.0
WHAT HAPPENED?!I’ve always loved this app and never had any problems or complaints, but now I’m having a huge issue. I’ve always been able to create art and then save my work to the French Girls app from the Procreate Pocket app, but now it doesn’t even give me that option anymore... It has nothing to do with my phone or iPod settings because I’ve never changed anything in my settings, but to be 100% sure I checked both my iPhone and my iPod and none of my settings are different, So it has something to do with the Procreate Pocket app. I really hope that you’re able to fix this issue because I love your app, but there’s no reason to have it if I can’t link my artwork to the French Girls app anymore because being able to have that option is the main reason that I downloaded the Procreate Pocket app. Have a wonderful day and Thank You So Much For Creating This Amazing Art App, I Just Seriously Hope that you can fix it..Version: 2.0
Great App, tends to lag behind iPhone updates.I’d like to start off by saying that I’d recommend this to any beginning artist! I use this on my phone and have recommended it to MANY of my friends as I’ve been able to make some pretty cool stuff. It comes with loads of great brushes (studio pen being my favorite) and brush settings. On of my favorite features is that you can make your own brush. Overall, the mechanics of the app are convenient and easy to use after some practice. The one thing I’ve been having a hard time with is the fact that whenever there’s an iPhone update, the app tends to crash on me, and then I have to wait a bit for them to fix it. In fact, I’m having this issue right now (at a very inconvenient time as I have an artwork in progress). That’s the only complaint I have about the app. Otherwise, highly recommend!!.Version: 3.0.7
Mixed feelings :/I love this app but there are a few problems. First of all I don’t like how for example you cannot make a color changing brush on pocket but you can make it on the regular procreate. I thought this app was going to have the same exact features as the one on regular procreate. And for me it’s not just the brushes. Soooooo much other stuff I can complain about. Another example is where you can do a marble effect with liquify. On my phone it only does an abstract painting. On the iPad it does an actual marble effect. Most of the other stuff is fine. Another thing I want procreate and pocket to have is where you can send the color palettes or brushes in iMessages. I tried it with my friend but it didn’t work. She got it from Instagram and I couldn’t find the brush. It would really help if I had a response from the developer, thank you ✌🏼:).Version: 3.0.7
Wonderful, some suggestions to make better.Let’s start positive! 1: This app is BEAUTIFUL and INCREDIBLE! This game has colors( BT dubs, my name of my creation is Colorz), and beauty! 2: You can use lots of colors, make pallets, make text, create different kinds of artwork, and SO much more! 3: The app is only 5 DOLLARS! Yes, REAL money. All for a ton of stuff! 4: There is no “Pro Version” of this app. You just pay, and boom! You get the whole thing! And, for the suggestions/downsides. 1: Undo and redo is a little weird. You have to use fingers. Can you just add an undo/redo button? 2: It is great, but can you add tutorials, please? So, this app is great! Just a few suggestions, but other than that, awesome! I wonder why the person who created Procreate didn’t creat Procreate Pocket? Okay, thank you! Edit: Oh, you did. My phone gets Procreate Pocket only.😞🤦🏻Whoops..Version: 4.0.4
I love it, but would like to see what happens in the future!I really love the app overall! Coming from someone who used PC softwares and ibisPaint, I really like using this. Everything is cool and I think the next updates will be cool and can make the app better. I have hard times making lines stable and I like how ibisPaint has a stabilizer tool. It goes for all brushes. You can increase or decrease the intensity. And you can always go back to drawing without the stabilizer which is “real time.” To use the stabilizer you go to “after.” I wish there was one like these in this app because when I hold for lines that I want they either give me arcs that are not how I wanted it to turn out or give me straight lines that I definitely didn’t need at the moment. Overall a great app and hope to see future updates! I will continue to use this..Version: 3.0.7
Highly recommended.I’ve been using this app for about a year and a half, and it hasn’t disappointed me once. As a person who has used multiple drawing apps, I have to say this is the best one I’ve used yet! I enjoy using the brushes, as they are very high-quality, and specific ones can be very helpful. I enjoy the fact there are canvases that are already made and ready to have your next masterpiece put on to. There are only two things that I have small issues with, whenever I use “color balance” I can’t get out of that mode and I have to restart the app, which gets rid of the adjustments. And also the FacePaint feature can’t be found. I may be doing it wrong, but I don't know. Other than that, this is a great app, and I’ll be using this for a long time..Version: 4.0.4
Adore it to bits but...OK, to put it simply, I absolutely love procreate pocket; however, its a bit tedious to use on older gen iPads that are not updating to iOS 13! It works fine, but the size of it doesn’t even fit to the edge of the iPad and there’s just two black gaps in between!! Even when you turn it sideways, it stays the same except instead of on the sides, it’s on the top and bottom of the screen!! I don’t like the look of it and it truly does not fit the seamless look I associate with procreate as a brand. This makes it so that it does not utilize the screen of the iPads it can be put on, and I’d really appreciate it if you could update the app to be just a bit stretched out to take up an entire iPad screen (just for iPad devices, of course, seeing how phones would not be able to use that.) I would really appreciate it, seeing how I’m on a 2013 iPad Air!.Version: 3.0.5
Pretty Good! Could use a Dark Mode, though!I’ve been using this app ever since the beginning of this year and boy, I have to say this app is definitely worth the buck, and I’m very excited to try the IPad version in the near future. My only concern though is the lack of a dark mode for this app. Don’t get me wrong, this app is wonderful, but when I want to wind down at night and draw on my phone, the dark mode I have on every other app make it easier on my eyes, yet when I open this app— BOOM! I’m implored with the white interface and it creates quite a bother to my eyes. This is especially true when I want to create darker ambient drawings, and I find myself not really liking the white as it creates a high contrast to the dark drawings. If this app would have a dark mode interface, it would be the most wonderful thing! ^_^.Version: 3.0.7
Okay appThis app seems pretty nice so far. I really like the option of brushes, and how smooth everything is. The only thing is that there could be many MANY improvements in this app.
For one, I can’t seem to figure out to import photos. I like to import traditional sketches and pictures of my characters/oc’s.
Second of all, there should be an option where you can type the number size of the brush
Third; the fact that when I zoom out a little when I’m drawing it zooms the whole canvas out which is very VERY frustrating.
Fourth; It should be easier to move a layer around and what not. It’s just so hard and frustrating to figure out how to move a certain layer, and sometimes by accident it completely stretches the layer, and it take forever to get the dang undo to work without accidentally drawing a whole bunch of dots all over your drawing.
This app can use a lot of work. You should make a button in the corner to undo and redo things, because the finger tap just makes everything difficult, and I always accidentally draw dots all over my drawings when trying to redo/undo.
Like in Ibis Paint, there should be a selection layer. It makes moving things so much easier!
Like I said before, this app can use a lot of work. When you fix those inconveniences maybe I’ll fix the rating.
Since it’s so AMAZING I will say what people have no idea ofI LOVE THIS I made a tons of books 📚 and there are so many things to choose from there are no in game purchases
No adds the best thing a girl 👧🏾 could dream for!!!

3: On the side you’ll see that there’s to half circles one make how much you’ll be able to see it the other make how big and small!😎

Gonna be it’s the hardest part lucky for me a adult did it but I can tell u the size 5000 and 5000 The DPL is 132 COLOR sRGB
That’s what u should do thanks for reading have a great day.Version: 3.0.7
I like it but it needs workHi I’d like to say that if you want to get procreate I’d rather get it on iPad then iPhone because it’s harder to do it on the iPhone it’s a really amazing app but there are a whole bunch of flaws and quite often it’ll ask you if you want to reload the example pictures of how it works it’s just they make you pay 5 to 10 bucks for these apps and let’s just say it isn’t the best but it also is very good witch ever since I got it on my iPhone and my iPad I loved it so much it was such a good app but after a while I started falling behind on using it on my phone it is started failing me so then I just wouldn’t work on my iPad and I don’t have any more stuff my iPad so do you want from someone who likes it then I put it as a don’t get it on your phone and a waste of money just get the one for your.Version: 3.0.7
Worth 5 starsThose who say this app is not good or give it a bad review, haven’t given it a chance or don’t know how to use its full potential if you ask me. This app is the perfect drawing app for any artist who actually has the time and patience to work on something. I learned how to use layering, texture, smoothing, and a lot more all by myself actually. The only thing I searched up was where to import new brush types and that’s all on the procreate website. I’ve made a good amount of things already and some were not outlines of drawing what I’ve drawn on actual paper. If you plan on drawing an outline of a picture you import, then I suggest you make using layers your bestfriend. This app works if you put the effort to work with it. The app is worth paying for even if it was $10..Version: 1.6.3
Great app with few exceptionsI’ve had procreate for about 6 months now, and I love pretty much every feature on the app, but I’ve noticed something. Whenever I watch the replay of one of my drawing, it looks more pixilated and there are tons of colors that I never used in the art piece. I honestly don’t know if there’s something I don’t know about or how to fix it, and I don’t know if it’s a normal thing in art apps. And I have another problem, I don’t know what’s causing procreate pocket it update slower than the IPad version, One example is that it’s been 4 months since procreate pocket has been updated. And whenever I save my photos (I normally use PNG) it’s the same thing with the replays. It’s more pixilated and there’s colors I never even used. I’ve been trying to fix the problem to no avail..Version: 3.0.7
Amazing! Amazing!As an artist myself, I always look for new ways to improve my art. I am a huge fan of digital art and always wanted to try it. I realize that this is the pocket version but it is so high quality and amazing that you would think it was the actual Procreate. I do have one question that I don’t know will be answered but: How do I blend one part of the painting/drawing I want instead of using the blur that blends everything? Unless that is a full Procreate item, which I am planning on getting soon. This is all in all and amazing app and fun for all. I see professional artists on social media using Procreate and their art work is amazing thanks to you guys. If I ever forfill my passion for art and become an art teacher one day I will surely recommend tbis app to all my students!😁.Version: 3.0.5
This is sadSo I have an iPad 2 right and I know it's old and only updates to iOS 9.3.5 but both your procreates have to be iOS 10 or more can you please make a separate app for those who have low iPads like me I would appreciate it because I love to draw and I have it on my iPhone 7 and all but the screen is to small so I got really excited when I saw it could be downloaded onto the iPad so I decided to go to App Store and look for it and I found the ten dollar one and got permission to downloaded it but when I went to it said must be iOS 10 or eleven I think so I got really sad because I understand most of you would be like "why not get a newer iPad" but I'm not allowed and plus I love to draw especially on procreate but it is really sad that it requires more updates by this is the max I can go to please do something about this I understand if you can not..Version: 3.0.5
What the pros useI work at an relatively large marketing firm. A year ago, most of my colleagues were tethered to their laptops: photoshop and a tablet of some sort for any and all designs. That is until I showed them the IPad Pro and Procreate. Fast forward a year and nearly all of our design team, 20 or so, are using Procreate and IPads. Our clients like the art we give them, our bosses like the quality we put out, and the designers like the flexibility. Brush simulation, countless layer modes, and a software development team that simply knows what they’re doing. Take it from a pro, this is the real deal.
PS If you read from some reviews that it takes forever to import brushes, know that there is a 2 minute workaround that has you importing hundreds of brushes instantly..Version: 1.6.3
Fitting to ScreenI love this app, and I was very excited to find out that it was a one time pay. I love how many different brushes there are, the quality, the ability to import photos etc. But, the display does not fit my iPhone (XR) screen. There are two circles on the left hand side of the screen in which are used to change the size of the brush and how solid the brush strokes are. Because the display doesn’t fit my screen (the display is too large for the screen), I can’t see the full circles and the % number of the size. It’s really annoying. I don’t know if this is because there is something wrong or because I just cannot figure out a way to fix it, but I watch videos of people using ProCreate and you can see the full thing on theirs. I would really appreciate it if this was fixed, and I will change my review to 5 stars..Version: 3.0.5
Love ItI’ve been a personal assistant/smartphone painting app user since 2004 and the Palm Zire.
I did the first-ever 24-hour comic (make a 24-page comic in 24 hours) made on an iPod Touch/iPhone using Brushes in 2008.
I LOVE digital painting on small screens, but when Brushes and its compact interface and playback feature went away, there wasn’t anything quite as easy to use until Procreate Pocket.
I like that Pocket has most of the features of Procreate for the iPad, including drawing assist, liquify, and text!
This is a good app for when you have an idea and only your phone to get it down. Or when you’re already in bed and inspiration for a joke strikes. (This has happened to me so many times!)
It’s great for fast visualizations, and better than you’d expect for photo manipulation. (Good enough that I got in trouble on a forum for a manipulation being TOO convincing.)
I use it Pocket, I love showing off what can be done with it on an iPhone, and recommend it highly!
The ONLY thing I want that Pocket doesn’t have is the playback of the files that come with the initial download. I need to know how that swordswoman that looks like a vector drawing was done!.Version: 3.0.7
Undo button?Can anybody find the undo button on the new version?.Version: 2.0
Loving it so farI just downloaded pocket and I am amazed at all the features it has. I have been using Procreate on my iPad for quite awhile so the transition has been effortless. My cheapo stylus even works.
I am hoping Symmetry will show up soon :).Version: 2.0
So far very impressed.I read some negative reviews but decided to try the app anyway. I got the sense that some of the users may not be as familiar with drawing apps or design software as some of us are, and I’ve seen them complain before due to lack of understanding.
When I first opened the app, it seemed the negative reviews were right in that it is very simple. Simple as in basic. After a little (very little) exploring and testing, I’ve discovered a fully functional illustration app! I am blown away by the concise design. I found most of what I would look for in desktop design apps just by doing some intuitive digging. I haven’t found masks yet, however, so that might be a point lost. I’ll keep playing around and update if I decide the review requires it.
Cancel???? Where is it???That’s a great app but I can’t « cancel ». Where is the button « cancel »? Why do you erase the button??? I want a button cancel!!! 😭😠.Version: 2.0
Good app! Unfortunate nameLmao I had to do a personal project and it KILLED ME to keep telling people what software I used because of the name,, yikess.Version: 1.6.3
Amazing!I just got it. And I seriously used it for like ten minutes... I loved it. I had used another app like this, it was free of course because I am cheap. But I absolutely love this! I’m planning on getting a pen for this app specifically. I do not have much experience with apps like these either. It was really easy to use and I had no problems with it so far. 😁 Strongly suggest you get this app. (If I run into any thing I might edit, but I doubt I will.).Version: 3.0.7
WHERE IS THE INSERT IMAGE BUTTON?I use to love this app until u guys removed the inert image button where it normally would be, under Modify. Where is it??.Version: 4.0.3
A problem occurredI just bought it and I was playing around with the brushes and I decided to make a wallpaper for my phone but when I tried to draw the background, it came out as squares and I was wondering why this was happening and how to fix it..Version: 3.0.6
DecentIt's good I can draw and write pretty good......But you need to add more brushes.Version: 1.6.3
Color glitchProcreate is an amazing app and I use it all the time! But recently all my colors are grey and I cannot make them not grey. Please fix this, Love the app!.Version: 4.0.4
Very niceIt’s like the best 10$ spent on an app… it been 1 year since my first use and I have nothing to say…..Version: 4.0.4
Pretty good port!Basically all the functions are there so that's nice and handy! Except I saw that procreate pocket should have the private layer option but I can't find it. Using it in the regular iPad procreate was great cause I use a lot of references and so posting the timelapse on social media is a lot clearer without seeing all the different reference pictures floating around in the background. Anyway, has anybody been able to use private layers on procreate pocket? How do I do it?.Version: 4.0.4
Neutral appI like the app but regret paying for it. I like the fact that you can put several layers but I think it has a lot of cons. It’s hard to undo your errors without erasing everything. Plus, when you draw, I hate the fact that you see all the pixels. I expected more..Version: 4.0.4
Great appIt’s a a great app but i downloaded it to see if i’m blindly talented, realized i can’t draw deleted it and regretted it and now i’m waiting for my purchase to proceed so i can get my money back 😄.Version: 4.0.4
Amazing!!!!Best drawing app out there :D.Version: 4.0.4
Why won’t my brushes workI’m trying to run a business, but with this new update I seriously cannot draw. None of the brushes work. The brushes I was accustomed to no longer exist. Really not happy here.
Update: brush problem was resolved. Thank you.Version: 4.0.4
Brushes won’t workI’ve used this since 2018 and it was always super simple to navigate. But now the brushes don’t even work for me. When I change the size on a brush like the studio pen it stays as a small line with random big lines like it’s exploding. Or if I just use something like the round brush it’s super opaque even tho it’s at 100% :(.Version: 4.0.4
Amazing!I’ve been looking for a nice drawing app to start drawing on my tablet; i started out with this version of procreate to see where i would land... and i’m so happy i did! i really started enjoying my tablet more just because of this app. i find myself picking it up more than before, just so i can draw. i have sooooo much time on my hands, since im pregnant and staying mostly home. while writing this, the «full» procreate app is installing on my ipad pro, and im eager to try this gem out!.Version: 4.0.4
Awesome 🤩It’s so good you should download it because it has so many cool features and brushes.Version: 4.0.4
It’s ok, but there are better alternatives with more capabilitiesThe ui for this app is genuinely not the greatest but better than it once was. When I first got this app you couldn’t even adjust the canvas but thankfully that issue is resolved. I’d assume that within the years there would be some better changes that make this app more viable but a lot of standard things are in most art programs aren’t in procreate.
One of this biggest issues is the paint bucket tool in this app, you can’t reference “all” layers or specific layers you need to merge everything or colour it manually by hand, and when you want to work fast this is a major drawback. Especially the dragging colours to fill something as well is not as fast as just quickly tapping areas you want filled. This app is not one thats really great for art that requires outlines unless you’re doing the outlining after. It’s definitely more suited toward a painting type of art work with brushes that feel good to paint with. But compared to a lot of apps, including FREE alternatives, it’s not the best. I’d suggest using artstudio (legacy is cheaper and still works well) clipstudio paint, medibang paint, or ibis paint. I’m honestly not sure why this app is used so often despite how limited it is in a lot of ways..Version: 3.0.7
Love it but...It’s the best thing ever but it takes a lot of storage on my iPad and I can’t make lots of TikToks.Version: 4.0.4
???How do you get other fonts? The new update kinda has me confused. 😅.Version: 4.0.4

QuestionThe app is just amazing !
I just have a question, how we can make the lines become rounder like to make shape.
I saw poeple doing it.Version: 4.0.4

Good app if you only have an iPhoneThis is a really good app and I’m happy that they did an iPhone version but the side of the screen is a little hard to work on if you are planning on doing detailed art..Version: 4.0.3
Good appIt’s a great app and easy to use. The only request I have is to change the size of the text easier because when I change the size of the text using the slider i have to guess what size it’s gonna be..Version: 4.0.3
It’s ok but has a problemIt’s a good app. Lots of cool stuff. BUT it has this weird habit of going all pixel-y sometimes it’s great but then it gets all weird and pixely. Idk how to fix this..Version: 4.0.3
AmazingI love this app with my entire being. While i haven’t used the iPad version, i think this illustration app is amazing! I recommend just splurging your money and buying it, because it’s so worth it. Also, please buy a stylus! It’s super helpful instead of using your fingers..Version: 4.0.3
Alpha lockHi! Each time I try to use alpha lock, it just outlines the whole canvas instead of my shape. Can you help?.Version: 4.0.3
