  • 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

    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.

    To 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.)
  • 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.

    I'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.
  • 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.

    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!
  • Feeling ecstatic with this new update 4.0 Feb 14, 2021

    By JJeevan
    I 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. 🥰😄

    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
  • I LOVE THIS, but one feature makes this app worse… Oct 23, 2021

    By small gamer kid bratt
    Truth be told, I wanted to give this five stars, but one feature makes it harder to make good art. The layer limit! I hate it, because I don’t have the best phone, and therefore I can’t do as much. I DO understand why it’s there(for our own quality), but I think there is a better way to handle it. You could give a warning when you make a layer above the limit that tells you something like “if you choose to continue then the program might run poorly, would you like to cancel?” And you could choose whether you want to continue or cancel. This way, we can know what to do for the best quality, but we can also do what we need to for the best art we can make. I also think there are people who don’t use the app due to the layer limit. Procreate and procreate pocket are amazingly made and can be used as a professional medium, so why not take it one more step and make this a truly professional app. If you read this, thank you for listening and thank you for the app, I hope you consider what I said!

  • I don’t really know 😬 By: MOK Jan 11, 2020

    By HITORMISSPOOPALOOP
    Procreate pocket is worse than the regular one on the iPad Pro. It’s very hard to draw things and draw ONE straight line. It just doesn’t make sense. I used procreate pocket BEFORE I got my iPad Pro so that it would be more helpful if I wanted to draw. But that sure didn’t work out. If they had an apple pen for iPhones it would be easier. But I can’t even draw a circle!!!! And I know you made ‘more improvements’ but I’m not taking my time to keep this app. I feel that if you want a coloring or doodling app on your phone, this wouldn’t be it.. I’m sorry I’m not trying to be rude. But I’m trying to state my honest opinion😖 And that I base my drawings off of circles. Because I’m a beginner. But I’m so very confused with this app. Is it because I cant draw with a apple pen???? What makes this app so 🙅🏽‍♀️? And one of the biggest problems I’m having is not being able to use certain brushes they have on the original procreate. Like liquify, I’m not sure how I feel about it. And almost 3/5 of your reviews are 1’s I SWEAR I’m not trying to say it’s a bad app I just want everyone to know how I feel about it. To me it’s just very..Confusing and difficult to work with. So with that being said this is my review for Procreate Pocket. With truth, MOK
  • 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.
  • Layers Oct 16, 2020

    By Amanita.Soup
    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.

    To 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.)

    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.

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.
  • Love this App Mar 30, 2020

    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!
  • Feeling ecstatic with this new update 4.0 Feb 14, 2021

    By JJeevan
    I 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. 🥰😄
  • 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.
  • 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.

    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
  • I LOVE THIS, but one feature makes this app worse… Oct 23, 2021

    By small gamer kid bratt
    Truth be told, I wanted to give this five stars, but one feature makes it harder to make good art. The layer limit! I hate it, because I don’t have the best phone, and therefore I can’t do as much. I DO understand why it’s there(for our own quality), but I think there is a better way to handle it. You could give a warning when you make a layer above the limit that tells you something like “if you choose to continue then the program might run poorly, would you like to cancel?” And you could choose whether you want to continue or cancel. This way, we can know what to do for the best quality, but we can also do what we need to for the best art we can make. I also think there are people who don’t use the app due to the layer limit. Procreate and procreate pocket are amazingly made and can be used as a professional medium, so why not take it one more step and make this a truly professional app. If you read this, thank you for listening and thank you for the app, I hope you consider what I said!
  • 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.
  • Great, for the mostpart Jul 18, 2018

    By Ljs0206
    I 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.
  • great.. BUT Sep 28, 2020

    By ellethepumpkinsmasher
    PROS: 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
  • 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.
  • I don’t really know 😬 By: MOK Jan 11, 2020

    By HITORMISSPOOPALOOP
    Procreate pocket is worse than the regular one on the iPad Pro. It’s very hard to draw things and draw ONE straight line. It just doesn’t make sense. I used procreate pocket BEFORE I got my iPad Pro so that it would be more helpful if I wanted to draw. But that sure didn’t work out. If they had an apple pen for iPhones it would be easier. But I can’t even draw a circle!!!! And I know you made ‘more improvements’ but I’m not taking my time to keep this app. I feel that if you want a coloring or doodling app on your phone, this wouldn’t be it.. I’m sorry I’m not trying to be rude. But I’m trying to state my honest opinion😖 And that I base my drawings off of circles. Because I’m a beginner. But I’m so very confused with this app. Is it because I cant draw with a apple pen???? What makes this app so 🙅🏽‍♀️? And one of the biggest problems I’m having is not being able to use certain brushes they have on the original procreate. Like liquify, I’m not sure how I feel about it. And almost 3/5 of your reviews are 1’s I SWEAR I’m not trying to say it’s a bad app I just want everyone to know how I feel about it. To me it’s just very..Confusing and difficult to work with. So with that being said this is my review for Procreate Pocket. With truth, MOK
  • Layers Oct 16, 2020

    By Amanita.Soup
    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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
