Procreate is arguably one of the most advanced artist apps in the App Store. With it, users can create incredibly detailed digital paintings using a vast array of tools and brushes, huge canvas sizes, and unlimited color options. The app has only been available for the iPad since its launch in 2011.
Procreate Pocket, which just launched in the App Store this week, is the iPhone version of its larger, more advanced counterpart. Now, you can create artwork on the go and easily transfer it to your iPad to add the finishing touches.
The app features 12 brushes that are specifically designed for sketching and illustration. You can also add additional custom brushes into the app that have been created by users online.
The app has been specially designed to make use of the speed of the iPhone, and more specifically the speed of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, using 64-bit color. The studio quality features include 4K Cinema Canvas for devices as old as the iPhone 5, an undo button that can withstand up to 250 backups in time. You’ll never worry about losing your work since the app continuously auto-saves your progress.
The layering system will maximize the abilities of your device to give you as many layers as you can handle. You can lock the layer transparency, create, merge, delete, and adjust the opacity of layers and even make use of the 18 layer Blend Modes.
Take advantage of the detail tools to move, distort, or shear an image. Lay down a filter to blur or sharpen the image. Adjust the hue, saturation or brightness of any project.
Just like its big brother, Procreate Pocket includes a video recording feature that records every single stroke you make on your canvas. This video can then be shared via social networking sites so you can show how your creation looked from start to finish.
The app includes robust sharing features so you can save projects in iCloud Drive, send to your iPad via AirDrop, or print directly from within the app using an AirPrint-enabled printer.
If you’ve only just started with your digital painting and want to take advantage of the full features available in Procreate for iPad, send it over using AirDrop and finish your work using the hundreds of brushes and tools available.
Procreate Pocket is available for $2.99. Download it in the App Store today.
