  • It’s a pretty good app overall but I do have a few questions... Oct 30, 2019

    By pastel_pancake
    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.❤️

  • Finally! A Robust Drawing App for Phones! Sep 18, 2020

    By not_found_shawn
    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.

  • Excellently executed Drawing App Sep 20, 2020

    By A Creadible Reveiwer
    I’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.

    This 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

    Update: 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!

  • Worst drawing app EVER Jun 4, 2016

    By Madiilyn
    Do not buy this app if you are looking to create precise images. In my free time I like to draw chibi and cartoon/manga art on paper and transfer the image digitally, however this app is absolutely ridiculous. Everything is based off a grid and you can not draw a singular straight line to safe your life, at least not all in the same color. It's basically impossible to outline ANYTHING and it's so so so frustrating. The stupid app also picks up original colors as well on new layers, like for instance say you are tracing an image that you made before and this time you'd like the character to have blonde hair instead of black well good freaking luck, the app picks up the original hair color and presto, your hair is now brown even when the color clearly says you are using yellow.. As for outlining, I spent three hours straight on this app just to realize that the black lining of my character was grey or even dark brown in some spots and almost impossible to outline anything tiny without getting at least three grid block colored in as well. You have to tap each individual square to get the color darker. All my eyes look like they have crazy amounts of eyeliner and it's just bs. I'm so sad. Please do not buy this app unless everything you do is by freehand. You are better off using the free paint program on a laptop.

    I’ve been using IbisPaint for quite a while. It’s reliable and free, but I’ve heard great things about procreate so I decided to get it a couple days ago. I have a very hard time drawing digitally so I import sketches I draw traditionally and go over it with whatever art program I’m using. When I decided to try out procreate I did just that. I uploaded a sketch from my phone. Everything was going fine while I outlined the sketch, but problems started arising when I started coloring and shading. On average I use about 20-30 layers in my drawings and I was shocked to find out that there was a 4 layer limit? Procreate shouldn’t have this problem especially if you have to pay for it. If free apps like IbisPaint can have infinite layers, then why in the world can’t procreate be the same? The second problem I ran into was: I use the section tool and fill tool very often and soon realized that they both only apply to the layer that you’re on. I could not use the fill tool at all. The opacity of layers is really wonky too. If these are just glitches please get them fixed. I want to like and use this app so much, but it’s not good. I expected more from the editors choice.

  • Disappointed Jan 4, 2020

    By Janice addams
    I recently got an IPad and Applepencil for Christmas, the first thing I wanted to do was download Procreate. I was upset to find that you need an iPad Pro to download the app. So I assumed I would go with the app I could get. Once opening the app I found that it was awful. First, the screen leaves black bars on the side and reduces the size of my drawing space. This is a big deal, considering I asked for the iPad in the first place because it provides a bigger drawing surface then my phone. Second of all, the app lacks a undo and re-do button. You have to tap the screen with two or three fingers, depending on which action you want to do. I personally use a Applepencil, so having to put it down, use my fingers, then pick it up every time I make a mistake is incredibly inconvenient. The last thing I would like to touch on is the fact that the quality is just awful, it is extremely pixilated, making your work look bad. Unless your zoomed in , it looks horrific. I could not be more upset with my purchase. I think I will be sticking with IbisPaint x, a free to use drawing program that I have never experienced these problems with. For now, I would have to say, this app is unusable.

  • Much Better Apps Put There May 27, 2020

    By love140
    The quality of the brushes are so terrible it’s confuses me. I don’t know if anyone has noticed but the brushes are horribly pixelated! They don’t come out smooth and refined as it should. I tried to draw an eye, like a professional drawer and it looked horrible. The quality of my drawings look worse than they should because I can’t put in detail I want. Compare this app to Sketchbook which is FREE, this app is like a doodle app, you know for non professionals, non artists and for those just wanting to color as in a coloring book. Procreate has no right to charge this much money for such a low grade app. I saw the sample drawings and quite frankly, it had to be done on the iPad version! Go ahead and make draw something intricate on this app! Try and put in detail and make it exquisite and you’ll see it does not have the capability. Now try the same on Sketchbook Autodesk and you’ll see the difference.

  • Could use some more/improved features. Oct 12, 2018

    By Marissa L Caswell
    The only thing I like about this app is the brushes as well as how you can download more. Other than that this app is super complicated to use. I’m constantly having to look things up “where is, how do I, etc.” It’s a hassle and takes up so much time. Also, when I use the selection tool it leaves a bunch of white space in between the selected area and the lines which makes it hard to fill in areas completely. Another thing is, I can’t even use this app to outline things because there is no pen stability and the end of the pen doesn’t point the same way as the beginning even though I’ll have both sides pointing at 100% (max) which is very odd. I hope you add more features and fix these things soon so I can’t start using what I paid for. :(

    When 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

  • Worth 5 stars Apr 14, 2018

    By JoshJB95
    Those 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.

  • Not that bad :) just some a minor inconvenience Nov 3, 2020

    By Could you help me?
    I’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.

  • Good app, could use some features Nov 6, 2020

    By Teutonix
    I’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.

  • Disappointed. Could have been better. Way below my expectation. Aug 20, 2016

    By Ani~~~
    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.

  • What happened? Sep 2, 2018

    By KDub0123456789
    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.

  • Not user friendly! Not what I expected. Jul 17, 2020

    By Blondy2004
    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.

  • Not updating?? Mar 7, 2019

    By 2cute4u_
    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.

    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.

  • Needs a little work Jun 16, 2016

    By Missyc77
    I enjoy this app but REALLY frustrated that I can't import more than one brush at a time! It's so tedious downloading brushes and having to import them one at a time. Also, why wouldn't Procreate allow .abr files when it's the most common? Makes 0 sense for Procreate to expect us to go through a millions steps to create a brush file we already have. Say there's 10 brushes in your .abr file, Procreate makes you download another app (ABR Viewer), save each individual brush to your camera roll, then create a different brush in the Procreate app one at a time. I find myself going crazy because of this!!! As far as the other features go, it has some good texture brushes but the interface is very elementary. It's missing several minor things that you get in many other drawing apps.

  • There is a problem that ruins the whole experience Aug 7, 2020

    By Biggiejuulia
    Layers....Why can I only make about 14 layers when on a free app (MediBang) I can make a thousand if I wanted to. I enjoy drawing with my fingers and wanted to try the app out because it seemed good but after that 14 layer limit it was a no for me. Everything else was so much better though. I was actually able to sketch, it had the same type of clipping method so it was easy for me to transition into using the app, and it let me save my colors easily (a god send) but then that limit hit. It hurt because it’s a good app but that limit just ruins it for me. I hope they take away the limit one day and then this app will become the most amazing and easy app to use for art. Until then It’s honestly unusable for me.

    Okay first off , the movement is very smooth , but causes the drawing to appear more pixelated . I read the reviews , but the dates said they were about 2-3 years ago , so I shrugged it off . Definitely a waste of $5 . I do not recommend . The screen was EXTREMELY small for an I-pad , and even when enlarging it , it caused to become PIXELATED . AGAIN . The palettes . There was not a large selection , causing me to have to take time to make my own of every color . Layers . Layers are extremely hard to work , and you end up just having to erase the base of you’re figure / drawing if using multiple layers . I did not expect the app to be bad , but turns out you do NOT get what you pay for I guess .

  • Worst drawing app EVER Jun 4, 2016

    By Madiilyn
    Do not buy this app if you are looking to create precise images. In my free time I like to draw chibi and cartoon/manga art on paper and transfer the image digitally, however this app is absolutely ridiculous. Everything is based off a grid and you can not draw a singular straight line to safe your life, at least not all in the same color. It's basically impossible to outline ANYTHING and it's so so so frustrating. The stupid app also picks up original colors as well on new layers, like for instance say you are tracing an image that you made before and this time you'd like the character to have blonde hair instead of black well good freaking luck, the app picks up the original hair color and presto, your hair is now brown even when the color clearly says you are using yellow.. As for outlining, I spent three hours straight on this app just to realize that the black lining of my character was grey or even dark brown in some spots and almost impossible to outline anything tiny without getting at least three grid block colored in as well. You have to tap each individual square to get the color darker. All my eyes look like they have crazy amounts of eyeliner and it's just bs. I'm so sad. Please do not buy this app unless everything you do is by freehand. You are better off using the free paint program on a laptop.

    I recently got an IPad and Applepencil for Christmas, the first thing I wanted to do was download Procreate. I was upset to find that you need an iPad Pro to download the app. So I assumed I would go with the app I could get. Once opening the app I found that it was awful. First, the screen leaves black bars on the side and reduces the size of my drawing space. This is a big deal, considering I asked for the iPad in the first place because it provides a bigger drawing surface then my phone. Second of all, the app lacks a undo and re-do button. You have to tap the screen with two or three fingers, depending on which action you want to do. I personally use a Applepencil, so having to put it down, use my fingers, then pick it up every time I make a mistake is incredibly inconvenient. The last thing I would like to touch on is the fact that the quality is just awful, it is extremely pixilated, making your work look bad. Unless your zoomed in , it looks horrific. I could not be more upset with my purchase. I think I will be sticking with IbisPaint x, a free to use drawing program that I have never experienced these problems with. For now, I would have to say, this app is unusable.

  • Much Better Apps Put There May 27, 2020

    The quality of the brushes are so terrible it’s confuses me. I don’t know if anyone has noticed but the brushes are horribly pixelated! They don’t come out smooth and refined as it should. I tried to draw an eye, like a professional drawer and it looked horrible. The quality of my drawings look worse than they should because I can’t put in detail I want. Compare this app to Sketchbook which is FREE, this app is like a doodle app, you know for non professionals, non artists and for those just wanting to color as in a coloring book. Procreate has no right to charge this much money for such a low grade app. I saw the sample drawings and quite frankly, it had to be done on the iPad version! Go ahead and make draw something intricate on this app! Try and put in detail and make it exquisite and you’ll see it does not have the capability. Now try the same on Sketchbook Autodesk and you’ll see the difference.

  • Ipad version is better Sep 20, 2018

    By Giagalcute
    Okay so I've tried the ipad version a few times because my friends have it and I thought "Oh this might be good to buy!" Then I realized there where two different versions and I was so confused like "Why? They just need to change the locations of certain things" I bought it anyway and I can say this app is DEFINITELY AWFUL. 1)There so little brushes?? I couldn't find a single brush to flatcolor my drawings because the inking brushes are too small and I don't want to use the paint brushes 2)Drop tabs hide things: One things for certain and it's that drop tabs aren't the answer to everything, they could be really annoying and it makes things harder 3)It's too simplistic, simple for art apps is and will always be the wrong idea. It's hard to find things if everything is simplistic. Well yeah that's why this app is bad.

    I’m starting off with my main problem cause no one seems to listen if you don’t give them a horrible rating. My biggest problem with this app is the fact that sometimes, and this is extremely frustrating, you’ll be working on something and the app will suddenly close out. No matter how many times you double click, shut down and restart, duplicate the drawing, no matter how long you wait, you will not be able to make a line on that drawing ever. I’m not sure if there’s a way to fix this but I am begging you to please t r y and fix it. This is the second time it’s happened to me and this time it was something I worked incredibly hard on. It’s extremely upsetting when all your hard work is put to waste all because of a bug. I am begging you. FIX THIS.
