Sw1ft3r - Conflicted feelings
I’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.
pastel_pancake - 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.❤️
not_found_shawn - 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.
A Creadible Reveiwer - Excellently executed Drawing App
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.
Alexplays1096 - Good
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
Aaa ddfkfk - Waste of 3.99
I love using digital art on my phone, computer, and laptop. The results are always clean. I’ve been interested in Procreate for a while, and when I heard it was on the phone I knew I had to get it. I bought this app, and still, I was excited (not about the fee however). This excitement left me very quickly within the first few minutes. I paid for this app and honestly feel like I should be allowed more than 2 layers for a drawing of 4000x4000 (which is the max!). The bigger and higher quality the drawing- the less layers you get. On other drawing programs I use, like Sketchbook Autodesk for example, the maximum that I could find was 5000x7000, with 21 layers! This very same program also has 201 different brushes- each one editable and different. And whats the kicker? Well, this app is completely free. The brushes in Procreate Pocket are simple, but there are only 135. Limited layers. Limited size. Not to mention there are brushes for things like hair and water- when a real artist should do these things on their own. Now, this app is good for beginners, but it’s far too expensive and honestly isn’t really worth it. If your app that you made cost 3.99 worse than that of an app that is free?? You should either improve it- or make it free so you don’t waste people’s money.
#1 MUSIC - Love this App
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!
HITORMISSPOOPALOOP - I don’t really know 😬 By: MOK
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.
Madiilyn - Worst drawing app EVER
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.
Ljs0206 - Great, for the mostpart
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.
Ani~~~ - 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.
ellethepumpkinsmasher - great.. BUT
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
Amanita.Soup - Layers
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.
Janice addams - Disappointed
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.
Dumb Noise Is Bad - 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!
Taytay06708425 - 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.
KDub0123456789 - 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.
YaHobGob - Update = Good but Not Perfect
To 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.
dnhdudhskns - Very Good
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
Blondy2004 - 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.
2cute4u_ - 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.
Foggy365 - 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.
Cain Burkett. - 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!
XxShadowWolfQueenxX - I like it but it needs work
Hi 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
The weirdo who has 14 subs - Great app with few exceptions
I’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.

Beauagrius45 - 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!😁
Oof Beans - Okay app
This 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.
JoshJB95 - Worth 5 stars
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.
Peter🥱🤍 - Former ibispaint user and wow!
Hi, I’m Parker. I’m 12 years old and an aspiring animation artist. I’m in love with drawing. Any type. And so when I discovered ibispaint I was like “Well this seems like a good sub in for procreate since I’m poor” so I used it for a while and got comfortable but when I finally got an iTunes gift card I immediately downloaded this. And oh my god!! This app is AMAZING!! It’s the perfect drawing app despite using tons of other ones. I’m in love with this app and I hope you will consider giving it a try! However I do have a small problem. I would appreciate a different type of color hue. I would like it to have a thicker line so you can better see the color you are choosing. But besides that this is an amazing app and I hope to continue loving it in the future!💕
Twzoner - What the pros use
I 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.
Sugarbug❤️❤️❤️🐶🐶🐶 - This is sad
So 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.
Mina on iPad2 - Night Mode for Pocket?
Love the iPhone version of Procreate. XS Max user and I’m constantly sketching ideas or doing mini studies on my phone. Also a night doodler, which brings me to my one issue. After the update I haven’t been able to endure the white back drop at night. I’ve looked for night mode options on the preferences and see none. Have also looked online for it, no success. It’s so painful staring at the white contrasting backdrop. Is there really no option for it? That’s my one major issue, I miss the dark interface. Would gladly recommend the app but please help in that regard. It’s an awful thing to be stuck with, ruins the experience. Thanks for everything else. It’s an incredible app in every other way, a mixed media artist’s dream come true. 💗
Jdndhdhhfhfhfhfh - Fitting to Screen
I 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.
Mistique FireMaiden - Finally found it!
This is the app I’ve been looking for! I’ve never bothered to actually buy or pay for an art type app because I felt they never live up to what I expect. My autistic daughter had been bugging me for days to get a “good one” so I gave in and got this one purely because it was the editor’s choice. I was blown away by it!!! Now not only eldest daughter but myself and youngest daughter use it. All of our art styles are drastically different and somehow the app fits us all! It feels like a match made in art heaven for all of us. Keep it up because I can’t wait to see what you bring to the table as the app develops further! And thank you from my eldest daughter because now she can express herself better. It really is a big help!
Lea Franco - Love It
I’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!
Ryaniscool4 - Please read
First things first, this app is absolutely amazing and I’ve never had an issue with it at all and I love improving my art along the way and trying out new things, But I’ve started to have issues with the app that is pretty concerning. Today I was making art like I normally would but as I drew my lines, they would glitch out when I undid them (this would happen a lot). I never saw this as a big issue as they would go back to normal after undoing them several times. Today the app crashed randomly and when I went back into the app I noticed that all my progress with the artwork I made was gone, I don’t know if this is a bug or an issue with my phone. Please fix this if this is a bug.
jennadrawsandgames - Pretty disappointed
As for a person who done digital art for the past 3 years, you would expect me to try this app out. I only got it yesterday and I don’t like it. There’s many things I did expect to be on the app just for to not be on it which it makes it even more difficult for people like me to use like add photos as a layer to an already existing drawing.
Lets say I’m drawing one of my ocs and I needed the color swatches. I can’t add in a picture as a layer and the only way to add a picture is to set it as the canvas which I don’t even know how to change the canvas size on this app maybe because there’s not a button to do that! I heard so many great things about the iPad version and in fact, I would try it out, but I don’t have an iPad to use. This maybe the worst money waste I’ve even done in my life. I’m pretty disappointed.
KoolCroco - This is the best drawing app ever. But... one suggestion/question.
It has everything—every option you could dream of—the UI is sleek and intuitive—and it’s just so amazing. It deserves a Wikipedia article. However, if the developers happen to read this, I have one question... I don’t see any configuration of this in settings, so I’d like to ask: how do you make it to, when you stop drawing a line, it stops right when your finger stops and DOESN’T taper off? It may be useful for many, but you added this in a recent update and I had gotten used to that not being a thing. I had started to hone my precision before you implemented that feature. Is there a way for me to toggle this? If not, please make it so. Thanks ❤️🖌
-W4FFL3/ - Great app love it.
Hello to everyone who is reading this and I hope you are having a good day. This app is great and many features have been added sense old reviews so don’t think to much of them. Some people say there aren’t a lot of things but you can find a whole bunch of things by clicking on the modify text at the top of the screen and find a ton of helpful tools there. There a also a good amount of helpful tutorials online. No ads and no glitches found! I have used this app for a while and think it is great. There is a large supply of plenty of brushes along with a wide range of customization options to fit the users needs and comfort perfectly. Highly suggest and have a good day 😄.
AlterSebasian - Great In General
People complain about no redo and undo buttons,etc. Please read the manual of the app first for Christ sake.
The only thing I am a bit of frustrated about is two finger pinch usually happened while I accidentally touch the area on the left where the brush controls lies, in which case would cause unable to pinch and draw a line that I don't want. Consider every one has different painting habbit, some one like to paint in landscape mode, some are not. I recommend in the future update, you guys can implement the DIY brush controls position, let the user put these brush controls where they would cause the least unexpected action for themselves. Or if you guys would solve it in some other ways, that's good too.
GrandMasterJ125 - Great, But Missing Sync
This is definitely one of the best iPhone drawing / painting apps out there, but, and (for me) this is a big but: it doesn’t sync with the files you create in Procreate for the iPad. Big bummer. I was hoping to be able to work on touch-ups when I have some free time, and only my iPhone with me. But alas, my dreams were dashed when I realized Procreate Pocket doesn’t sync with everything I already created on my iPad.
I may be an outlier here, but I find it very hard to create drawings with my finger on the iPhone screen. (At least, the kind of drawings I like.) So, for me, the main case for using this app was to work on art I had created previously on my iPad. No such luck.
I can only hope that the brilliant people behind Procreate understand this need and are planning to add iCloud syncing in a future update. Fingers crossed.
Shelton gamer - Please Help
So when I first opened the app I made a new canvas and tried to test out the brushes but when I moved my finger around, it wasn’t doing anything and I can’t even see most of the screen and there’s no setting to change that as far as I know. The app was just not working at all, I have a iPhone 6 so if that’s why then you might need to make it clear that it doesn’t work for older phones. If there is a way to fix this then please do because I was really looking forward to using this app.
Edit: okay sorry I figured out that it was this thing called Haptic Touch so it would only react when I press really hard so when I turned it off it started working so yeah, sorry dev of procreate your app is pretty good
mary_A1008 - Amazing app
I just bought the app and it’s awesome. I was looking for an app like this that wasn’t expensive but I went and got an iTunes card and bought it. Before I got the app I looked at the reviews lots of them were bad only because that didn’t have the patience to figure out how to use it. it’s totally worth the money. I now understand why people wanna buy it. It is an amazing game worth buying it’s the only game I’ve played all day. I love it. If your looking at the reviews don’t even read the bad reviews cause this app deserves five stars. I will say I don’t have procreate the real one this is the only version I have but it definitely can’t be any less great than the real version.
love140 - Much Better Apps Put There
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.
jman98 - Add more of procreate 5 features!🙏
I seriously love this app, and I appreciate the hard work the developers put into making this app for both iPhone and iPad but would it be too much to ask for them to make the app universal with many more of the same features as the iPad version?
I've used this app for my freelance work, and also just as a hobby to create something when I feel inspired. It's fantastic and I've been a long time user of the iPad version since I had the first gen iPad mini.
I've shared this with friends and family, they love it as well.
My freelance work requires me to be mobile though and sometimes I don't have my iPad Pro with me so it would be wonderful to have more of those features I love from the iPad version available on Procreate Pocket. Also it would be great if they could allow for the option to use iCloud sync for the artwork. If Adobe can do it I have no doubt it can be done here too.
🙌Thanks in advance.
👉For any people looking to get into creative work, I highly recommend going with this app, I think it might be the best one you can find especially for iPhone devices.
As soon as it gets those updates I'll be sure to add the 5 stars to it.
Lauren Friscia - Thoughts towards the app
When I used the app on my iPad Pro it was perfect and a good use of my time but when I purchased procreate pocket on my phone I couldn’t work the eraser and not everything would work like it would on my iPad. At least I was still able to draw on my phone, but it is a little difficult to draw on a tiny screen without an Apple Pencil. I use an Apple Pencil on my iPad, but I can’t use it on my phone and it is very difficult to use my finger. I still love the app, I just wish it would work like the procreate I have on my iPad. I just had to delete the app today because I couldn’t draw anything on it, I could click the tools but I couldn’t draw. I was disappointed on how it turned out but I am downloading it again and I hope that I can work it better.
Sassypants da cat - I'd say don't listen to those really bad reviews
The app is super fun and great to use and provides a lot of different textures, colors, opacity amounts, and size options. Drawing is super easy in this app and makes your works of art look so good! Its only five dollars, its worth a try if you love art or just looking for a super fun app! It's also really hard to mess up your whole drawing because undoing and redoing is super easy and works on everything! Its like fool proof and Im always super curious about options and controls so I accidentally press a bad button a lot but this app is like made for people like this! I would recommend this app to all my artistic friends and even non artists!
03302017 - my favourite sketching app
i’m a student youtuber & have been hearing about procreate (the ipad version) for a long time. the only problem was that i don’t actually have an ipad, but i do have a phone - so when i heard about procreate pocket, i was so excited! i freaking love the new update, there are so many amazing brushes to choose from and i also really love importing my own brushes into the app to use. i’ve tested out a LOT of drawing apps and this one is definitely my favourite. i also love doing calligraphy and this app has a wonderful interface that is easy to understand and use, and it has so many options like i said !! i’m going to stop here but i would 110% recommend this app!!
LittleMustardSeed - Professional grade app for very low price
This is a wonderful drawing app. You get high resolution drawings, with an easy-to-understand set of tools.
If you have an iPad, it's even better. Much more space to work with, and more tools.
This app is carefully maintained by a professional and responsible team.
A lot of hard work and dedication must've been put into creating this.
And the amazing thing is you have a professional grade drawing app for just dollars!
More than worth every penny, this is a deal not to be beat.
If you like to draw, whether for fun or professionally, this app is well worth buying.
It has been endorsed by Apple, and for very good reason.
If you're fortunate to also have an iPad, or an iPad Pro, give this app a try for those devices as well.
The extra real-estate you have to draw on makes it an even better experience.
But even if you only have an iPhone or iPod touch, it's a fabulous drawing app.
You can download free brushes from the Procreate community.
Lots of great brushes to try.
Hope you will have a chance to enjoy the Procreate app. I doubt it will disappoint.

Hi cool epic love it - Great but one problem
Hi I’m Bri I love procreate, it’s amazing but there is a little problem well 2 problems exactly, 1. There is only 7 layers aloud and I can’t get the iPad version because it requires iOS13 and on my iPad I have IOS10 (since it’s a old model and we can’t really afford a new iPad) but I need way more layers on the pocket version caz I use it to draw and animate. The second problem is that there is some brushes on the other version that aren’t on the pocket version, this really bugs me because when I call my friends we draw on procreate my friends use the other version but I use pocket since my iPad is a really old model, so I see so many cool brushes on the iPad version which are not on the pocket I am slowly moving to another drawing app because of this. So basically what I’m trying to say is that there is way better things on the iPad version and hardly any good stuff on pocket! Please fix this.
Blue Fairy Wren - App works great on iphone, but could be better
I have had this app on my phone for a while and it works great and all. But when I realised it was originally an ipad app, I decided to put it on my ipad. And it insisted on having the size of an iPhone on my ipad screen which was ridiculous. So I decided to just pay for the ipad app as well, and after finally finding it, discovering it will only download on an ipad of ios 13.2 or higher. As someone with an ipad that will only upgrade to ios 12, I’m not going to get the next ipad just for this app, but I would like it, if you can either fix the sizing issue for this app, or fix the other app so it works on only slightly older versions. Besides this, it is a great drawing app, though it’s sad that a paid app can’t be compatible with something other than the “latest version”.
Pinksamillion - Great app just one request
I wanted this app for soo long and when I finally convinced my parents to buy it for me I was really happy. I found it a great app with many great brushes. I would love you guys to create a option to make a table, I know there is a grid option but it doesn’t fit the ideas I want it for. So I would love this app even more if you could create a table option where you can decide how many columns and rows are in the table and how big the table is. Other wise it is a really great app and would highly recommend
Daengerous - This app really helps me deal with my overactive imagination with ease of use!
Hey guys I absolutely love this app. It makes it easy for a non artistic person to be able to enjoy the therapeutic calm of drawing and expressing yourself. One thing I’d like to see in the app is the ability to use one of my drawings and import it into the background setting. Like making mini animations and this would make it easier than importing it from my photos app.
Other than that this app definitely is a recommend to anyone who wants to express themselves :)
Tillz12359 - Worth It
For an app designed for iPhones it is definitely worth getting. Despite lacking a few features that Procreate has, Procreate Pocket is a wonderful app I use all the time.
The one downside is the fact that you can only have a certain amount of layers and animating is not very great but still, I rate it 4 out of 5 stars
Trio3account - Makes creating art fun
Highly recommend this app for on the go use, as well as casual use. You can create a range of different styles of artistic expression, only really limited by your imagination. Art making is simplified using the app, however I think it could be improved by what the guy said below. Adding more tools like a bucket fill tool would help a lot. Otherwise great app to create art with!
Also please optimise for iPhone X! :)
Pocketluci - Find the right stylus
This app is great especially on the go when you have an idea but you don’t want to forget. The downsides are you can’t use an Apple Pencil gen 1 or 2 so you have to find a good stylus which is harder than it looks. It is small but that can be good or bad but I highly recommend this app unless you already have an iPad which in that case you should download procreate on there.
Josh Bowman - Fantastic
Brilliantly simple but extremely powerful. It's so good on the 7 Plus that I bought it twice just to show my support.
A couple of minor niggles:
A) the placement of the resize and opacity sliders which I'm constantly accidentally activating while holding the app. I'm not sure how to get around this though in terms of a UI redesign. And B) not a big fan of the middle circle colour picker, I like the outer circle but much prefer an inner square (classic).
Summy64 - Could be greater
The undo-redo ux is a pain. I finally got a response from the dev about maybe placing a button if they can find a space for it?
Hope it will happen. I literally could not find out how to redo!
Importing brushes is a pain too. I wish we could just have unlimited options to do this like in the Brushes app.
Simplicity is key.
Fix those two things, and it’s perfect. As an artist, I just want to work fast. I don’t want to have to labor over adjusting a brush, etc. I wish to hell there was a sharp square-tip brush in the menu that I could just use immediately!
Fan of anime 😀😊☺️😉 - Take off the limit
I really like this app, I’ve used a lot but compared to the older version of it there wasn’t a limit on the layers but on this new version they is a limit and I don’t like it . This the is supposed to be a full version not a demo version so please take off the number limit feature on the layers because I can’t extend my artwork if there’s a number limit on how many layers you need. I want to continue using this app please take off the number limit .
ella.sch - Fill bucket problem
Hi, I was in procreate pocket and a cane across a problem with the colour fill bucket, it will not let me drag it into a certain area when the circle is closed it just tints the whole canvas with a light tint of the colour I’m using, i have tried watching videos to see what to do but none of them work, is there any way I can fix it, thanks
quashmz youtube - You don’t get everything iPad does
I’m on iPhone and I found that we don’t have some of the features and stuff and that’s completely ridiculous because we still payed like I want feathering but I can’t get it so if you could make them the same it would be greatly appreciated
Poor person millionare - It's ok, one big problem though.
How do you undo a stroke? It said at the start to just double tap to undo a stroke and triple tap to redo a stroke but it didn't work, when I tried double tapping it just made dots and didn't undo the stroke, I've been going well on a drawing and then I make a mistake that I can't get rid of without erasing other things on the same layer and basically just have to trash the drawing because I can't undo the brush stroke, please fix this as soon as possible.
돼지토끼.. - Best drawing app ever
Finally symmetry option is available here in pro create pocket. As i promised I’ll give u 5stars. This app is worth to buy, even if you are not good at drawing (like me) this app is really easy to use and fun to draw with. You can draw whatever you like and use different tools, i just love this app so much!! I recommend this app!!
san0527 - Import issue
App crashes every time just before a .psd image is imported through the app or sent to Pocket through the iPhone gallery app.
Otherwise much like the iPad Procreate that I’ve grown to love.
Update- this no longer seems to be an issue, takes a bit of time but imports .psd files fine. Thank you!
JBjace8 - Amazing
This app is one of the best. Never have I seen a digital art app of this quality for an iPhone. It’s SUPER easy to get the hang of and is super clean and smooth when drawing. I have had this app for months now and highly recommend it to anyone that needs a quality drawing app for their phone.
imasignora - Great app, minor improvements
This app is great for making quick, cheeky edits to photos on the go. It's a fun past time.
Some adjustments id make:
- First and foremost iCloud support. Not sure if it has it, but i suspect if i delete the app i lose all of the creations
- I often tap the procreate pocket header when trying to export images. With that said the about page should say "Done" instead of "cancel"
- reduce steps to export. Make use of force touch on images to quickly export them. Also reduce steps: share should be next to delete rather than under 'more'
Great app, please take my feedback on board!
ponger of pings - Great app. Weird bug though.
I use procreate on the iPad and it’s great so I decided to get it on the iPhone. The app seems to have a lot of potential, but for some reasons I can only use some select inking brushes and nothing else, not even the eraser. I’m on an iPhone 6s and my iOS is up to date. Please help if you can.
Cdfirygegihruyg - GREAT one question
I love this game it’s amazing I use it waaaayyyyyyyy to much but one quick question is procreate 15 dollars a month or just 15 dollars to buy it because my pop and I wanna try it out but we’re not sure if it’s just 15 or 15 a month it would really help if you told us thanks :)
Lazuma04 - Please add to new update for Procreate!!!
Okay so I’ve been having a few bugs pop into my app and they are making my app very laggy! Could you please fix this also could there be a dark mode as well? I would love to have the same experience as my iPad. Thank you! :)
AnonymousAnnoyingMe - Just one thing.
I love this app so much! It’s the best drawing app and I highly recommend it! But there’s just one thing, the clouds. When I turn my screen to the side, I expect the clouds to as well. But they don’t. If you could please add a feature that helps me with this, that would be lovely! Thank you for creating your lovely app though! 😁👍🏻
ICantUseMyOwnNameOOF - It wont let me draw ://
I draw with my finger and when I first got it it was fine I just didn’t know how to use it so I left it alone but I went back to it yesterday to draw on it to try it out properly and it wouldn’t work, I didn’t have the same colour as the BG or anything
The like brush ball thing isn’t even showing up
It wont let me draw wit my finger and I ya really fxxking annoying
Elle🐥🐼🐶 - Two things I’d like.
I would like to see a bucket tool to fill in big spaces, and I also want to see a eye dropper. It’s really annoying to try and find the same colour and you have to completely erase a section so you can make the part all the same.
Other than that it’s really smooth.
BTSareTHEbestOFme - Glitches?
I love using procreate, but lately I’ve been having trouble with my pens and erasers. The eraser isn’t working, it’s not erasing mistakes, and no matter what pen I use, it stays really small.
It would be great if you could fix this but other than that, this is a great app! Really easy and fun to use; definitely worth its price.
terrible artist😂 - Slime time with sadhbh! 😂 if you can’t tell this is my favourite emoji😂
I love how you can use colour drop because I have an Apple Pencil and procreate on my iPad Pro and I also love has you can do calligraphy (that’s the whole reason I have an Apple Pencil 😂) but with this you can’t use an Apple Pencil trust me(I would know)
A ROBLOX PLAY - Okay
Procreate is okay but not better than most apps. Wish you could make it into dark mode like procreate the classic one. But the app worlds greatest. No adds, can add as many canvases as u want, works just like procreate (classic) but you can’t animate but you paid less for it and this is what you get.
Nimi1041114 - Love it❤️❤️❤️
I am absolutely in love with procreate pocket, it is such an amazing app, whenever I’m bored I just go on procreate and colour for hours and keeps me entertained for a very long time!
And another good thing is that IT DOESN’T NEED WIFI so in the car I can use procreate with no problems❤️❤️
Haitham_Khader - Very disappointing
The procreate app on ipad is the best ever app I have on my entire life, it helps me to revealing my hidden talent. At the time I have uploaded the pocket version here on iPhone,I didn’t guess it will have all features of the ipad app, but at least most. Unfortunately, was not the case, the performance is very low and controlling tab are very hard to use.
it needs an attention team, same as ipad one.
Glennyrogers - Maybe
It is an awsome app that I use when I am bored! And today I was wondering why it’s not letting me shape up my bad circle I was thinking to reset the app and then when that would not work after 2 try’s I reset my phone. This did not help but I still recommend this app!!
me-eloise - Hi! Great app ✨✨✨
I love this app, would definitely recommend if you’re willing to pay the money. WORTH it so much! I would recommend buying this one instead of the full version as it does most of the same things <3 by the way hi 😌😌😌🦧🦧🦧🦧🦧🦧🦧🦧🦧
🌸XxbellaxX🌸 - Great app!!!!
This is such an amazing app and it is totally worth the money! The only thing is it’s a bit confusing when you start using it and it is a bit hard without a pencil. But overall it’s a great app 😊
manbehindthesl4ughter - Great App!
Hello, I bought this app recently and I don’t regret it! It’s a awesome app to use. Although it can be difficult to figure out how to use the colours, brushes and how to select one part of your drawing. Other than that it’s really fun to use and it’s an awesome app!
plloylolly - It finally would work!
When I first brought this app I was annoyed because It wouldn’t let me do anything, eventually it let me draw and change colour Ex.
I like the app now and it’s not a waste of money unless you don’t like to draw or hand make.
Good job with the app!😁👍🏽
n is for noot noot - Best art app
Absolutely love this app, revolutionised my art process. Wondering if there will ever be a more exact value system for the brush sizes. I find it hard to match up previous line work if I’ve accidentally changed the size.
livstayayobe - Just a suggestion
I have an iPad mini and when I got the app the normal procreate didn’t come up as an option so I got this one Instread but I doesn’t fit my screen I think it would be great if you made it fit iPad minis
udaysgill - Wrong app download
I am new to this App Store. I meant to download the full version of procreate for iPad but mistakenly downloaded the pocket version. I then proceeded to download the full version as well could you please delete this pocket version and issue a refund. Thanks
Ardeet - Wow, what an update
I was going to add to my previous 5 star review.
I read it. It still stands as is.
This is a beautifully amazing app. I remain genuinely impressed.
I have used the full version on iPad for years and appreciated how this pocket version gave me a basic canvas to roughly sketch some cartoon ideas on the go ...
... however this latest update gives and gives more with brushes and interface upgrades galore.
I’m genuinely impressed with what I can now put in my pocket.
billie eilishhhhhhhhh - i love itt
i love pocket! i have both procreate n pocket lol, i honestly have nothing negative to say about it but i do have a question! how do you see what opacity your pen is at ? im not sure if you can do that on pocket , but if that isnt there then id suggest adding it in ! like how you guys do it with the layers opacity , same with the pen size ! but again if you can see the numbers etc pls let me know how to turn it on ! also something else ; what stylus is good for the iphone 7 ? or ipad 6th generation
TheRandomPerson12345 - Amazing app.
5 stars would recommend. It is great for travelling and worth the money. No, you can’t get procreate pocket on an iPad, I tried but the screen size is the shape of a phone, but that is completely reasonable. 🙇♀️🙇♀️🙇♀️🙇♀️ amazing app
Dog🐶andfox🦊 - Terrible for iPad
This app is apparently good. I got it for my iPad and it’s terrible. The layout is horrible and I can not navigate. I got this app because pro create is only available with the update and my iPad for some reason wont update. I’m very disappointed and upset for wasting my money on this. It might be good on iPhone but it’s definitely not good on my iPad! 😖
태ʕ•ᴥ•ʔ - Really great for Designers
I own a small fashion company and it’s just a great little app to have on my phone if I think of an idea late at night, it makes it so easy to quickly sketch out an idea.
akffk9932 - Can i get a refund please.
Actually i tried to buy an ipad version app, but i made a mistake to buy this app. I want to use the app at ipad so i wanna get refund this app and want to buy an app for ipad version.
Foxie3366 - Hello a bit of a question
Hi I’m looking for the animation assist is it not on the iPhone version cos I can find it or only iPad? Anyway I get the limited pages too, but I just make a new canvas and that fixes it.
forever potatoes - It’s great but one problem!
I love this game it is really great, however I just have one request. If there could be an option to fill an area of your drawing! This would be dreamt for people who don’t have an Apple Pencil.
FlippinPenguins8 - This one problem.
Hi, I see people using procreate, making awesome art, and having fun. I really wish I could rate this app 5 stars, but when I draw a line, nothing shows up; it’s still a blank canvas. Is it just a bug, is it my phone? (iPhone 7) I’m really confused, and I would really like somebody to help out 😓
I do love the app though, the tools seem pretty cool and the art people make on here is amazing.
Thanks for reading 😊
This is an edit!! So I found out that so far, I can only use the inking pens 🤦 I don’t know what to do-
Hellyeahgirlfriend! - Hands down the best drawing app
As somebody who draws on their iPhone more than their iPad, it’s awesome the see it’s recent updates come across to the phone. Simply brilliant! : )
Keep up the great work!
AlisaAustralia - I Regret..
I regret not buying this earlier!
To be honest, I was kind of skeptical about this app at first, because most of the drawing apps that I've used so far were kind of rubbish, unlike Procreate. It's so simple and so easy to use, and it does it's job so well!
Some of the tools were a bit hard to find though, like the filling and redo. Maybe there's a tutorial that I skipped, I don't remember, but either way, this app is perfect.
wonvgsurnn - Bear with me
Hey I love procreate but there’s lots of things you can’t do on phones but you can do on iPads so can you please please do whatever you can do an iPad to phone
Zoidenberger - Poor interface ruins an otherwise great app.
I find the interface a horrible experience. It does not parallel the experience of the iPad app and is very difficult to navigate. Despite this, the app is powerful and functional once the interface is deciphered.
Drawing Needs - Problem
For some reason my procreate brushes aren’t working, this annoys me because I have just spend the money I worked hard for and it is very disappointing as heaps of my friends say procreate is amazing, well it’s not it’s very upsetting to see I have spent my money and do not get what I am hoping for
If I could I would rate this 0 stars
Please help me and my rating might go up

torontoskinnyman - Undo button?
Can anybody find the undo button on the new version?
sewandsewca - Loving it so far
I 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 :)
Brilliantboy - Lacking
Can't adjust my canvas size, and only 12 preset brushes?!
MissEElizabeth - 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.
user8531123 - i’m a little upset
i bought this the other day cause i know procreate is well liked, so i bought it i’m kinda disappointed i have hard times layering and not really happy about it. i downloaded another app it does almost the same things for cheaper. if there’s a way i can get some help with layering please help me cause i think it might just be me. i love all the tools and stuff i’m just having major troubles with using the app and kinda underwhelmed.
secret2123 - 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!!! 😭😠
Lukariobro - Not worth it
Okay so I can blend and edit with layers, but what about text? Am I suppose to buy the too? I can find better editor apps/programs for free.
Lilly 1109 - Good app! Unfortunate name
Lmao I had to do a personal project and it KILLED ME to keep telling people what software I used because of the name,, yikess
Lisa kitty cat - A problem occurred
I 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.
Maxgeorgia2baker - Update
Please make an update for it to be like the one on ipod for the iPhone 5c!
It would be awesome. As it's harder to find things. Also I can't make my own brushes! I use this app for fansigns, so it would be awesome to have the update. Or I have to quit!
Dakej - Wow !
This new update has levelled the playing field between Pocket for iPhone and it’s counter part Pro Create for iPad, just what I’ve wanted for some time now and worth the wait, and it’s A FREE UPDATE, that’s more like an upgrade, a huge thanks from me, Loving It.
Genny441166 - LIGHT THEME IS HORRIBLE
Completely illogical to have only a light themed user interface. It’s painful on the eyes during the night. At least give us a choice between light theme & dark theme because the light theme is horrid, not to mention looks terrible too. Everything else is great!
PLZ READ MEH - Terrible...
I bought this due to the fact that it was cheaper than the Original Procreate, however this lacks quality, detail, and many tools that I use frequently. Overall I completely regret making this purchase, I would get a refund if I could.
Kikkmjggnbnbbb - Decent
It's good I can draw and write pretty good......But you need to add more brushes
Videogameluv - Broken👎🏻
Crashes constantly, erases parts of layers by itself and in all not worth the money.
🥔📦🧦🔥 - It’s okay
I just got it and I think that in the time that I’ve started playing with it, I’ve found so many different textures and amazing brushes! I’m going to continue search for new things! One thing that would be great is dark mode!
Spintoolose - No stylus support?
I have a jot touch 4...I don't like to finger paint, have a iPhone 6 and I would like to have pressure sensitive to supported for my stylus... Most of all the other drawing apps for iPhone support jot touch or other stylus why not you???
miWa:( - Best app ever
my mom gifted this me this and let me just say, it is the one of the best apps I’ve ever gotten! It makes drawing so much easier. Would definitely recommend!! :D
kingawesome-,- - Amazing/worth the money
I would like to say that this app is best app you can find out there for all u artist. It’s great do to incredible art work and I urge u people to get this. I personally love this app, the only thing I would add is if you could move the brush slide/opacity setting thing from the left to the right (like the iPad version). Obviously I would get the iPad version if I could but I don’t have IPad lol.
go to my TikTok lip_gloss.0 - Dark mode
All I need is a dark mode plsss
Suzie Clement - Disappointing
I got this version since my iPad is old and can’t get the original procreate, and it’s about half the screen of my iPad and I can’t seem to be satisfied with it:/
whithehelltooklemonjuice - Won’t let me use certain paint brushes
When I try and use my paintbrushes I want it won’t work, I don’t know why, but they won’t show up. I’ll make sure the opacity is all the way up and I double check everything. no matter how hard I press or how lightly I press it won’t work!
Doodledog07 - Works wonderfully
I've noticed a few bad reviews here, but it seems like most are just because the people aren't familiar with the procreate interface and it has nothing to do with the app itself. I've been using procreate on my iPad for a while and although that's nice, I can't bring my iPad with me absolutely everywhere. So, I decided to buy this app to see if it's just as good and would be a better option for doodling on the go. Once you get used to it, it's very easy to use and you can make wonderful drawings with it. I love this app and it's my favourite way to draw when my other devices aren't available.
gamer_girl827 - Animation??
Keep seeing tons of people animating on procreate, so i looked up so tutorials. They said to click on the tools, then turn on animation assist. It does not show up.. is it only for ipad or something?? (Im using my phone)
Briana<3 - Little upset.
I had to buy this app because procreate needed ios 13 I only have ios 12 I was waiting for procreate I wanted it so badly, my iPad is an iPad mini :(
LailaT10 - About procreate pocket
When I went into the game it would not let me draw or do anything on it and when I shut my iPad off it still didn’t let me draw on it I want a refund plz
khloe iconic - doesn’t let me import video
it’s a great app but doesn’t let me import a video unless it’s 1 second long
Kittylover1010 - Dark mode
This would be a five star if you could set this to dark mode
PuppyReviewer24 - Add a ruler with proper measure labels
I love using this app but I’ve been having problems to make sure that I have proper measurements for me to print this out later. I tried using the grid tool to make the grids 8.5 in by 11 in but it’s not working in my favour.
Maybe you can add a ruler tool that has inches, centimetres, millimetres, etc. And/or add a feature when mere when you press in, cm, mm, etc on the 2D grid editor, it makes it automatically add the grid to match the measurement on the page properly.
Hope you consider my suggestion.
🦿💀🦿👅💀🦷💀🦷🦷 - I don’t like how the way to resize ur brushes
Sometimes it doesn’t work so change it
usueejeb - Love it
I like I but I wish if you could animate
yay45368 - Can’t use
I have an iPad mini 2 with the newest software update (as of August 2020) and yet still cannot download the app. Does Procreate pocket support the iPad mini 2?
sicko mode level 100 - it won’t draw
whenever I trey and draw with my finger it doesn’t show, and when I use my stylus, I have to use a lot of force for a very light line to show, how ca I fix this??
just call me jojo - Very good
I find the app very good, but I feel like it doesn’t deserve a 5 star rating. I’ve been using it for 6 months now and it works very well.
whhdjckxkwkkaksc - Why is thar a max limit
It’s just that I wus working on a drawing and I reached the 11 layer limit and you target big time artists and artists like to have more layers and even I can’t fix the 11 layer problem my self.
naomibrown03 - Pressure sensitivity
Does anyone know how to change the pressure sensitivity for the brushes? I can’t figure out how to do it on procreate pocket
157278:69?,799 - Amazing!
I love this app and use it all the time. The brushes are wonderful, and I’m really happy with it. I did notice that the iPad version has some features that Procreate Pocket doesn’t, like Color Dynamics. I’d also like to be able to animate on Procreate Pocket Could you please add things like that?
Thank you 😊 You’ve made a wonderful app.
lol im jo - Having trouble
I have been trying to make the brush smaller but I can’t seem to be able to can you please tell me how I can I’m loving the app otherwise
barnie the dinosaur - Garbage
I hate it how do I get a refund
Danica.G - omg
omg this app has so many brushes,canvases,etc TOTALLY recommend to all artists
Bobfjjfskfjbzusbeiddjd - Limited capabilities
I bought this thinking it was like the real one but it’s very different. You don’t get many options like the other one does. Half of the brush customization options aren’t there and I feel like I wasted my money
Ava (☞ ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)☞ - Can’t find it :(
I can’t find how to use animation assist I need someone to help me find it I want to make animations now but I can’t lol so I’d love it if someone could explain it to me 💕 thanks
Luca ✨✨ - Is already better.!! 👍
This app is amazing 😉 and you should buy it!! I am in love 😻 with everything 😜💕😔👍👍👍👍💕👍
fhdnc - LAYER LIMIT!!!
Can you ask lease get rid of the layer limit it’s hard to to make animations with it please please please get rid of it!!!
Roseatta22 - Super!
It’s an awesome drawing app! It’s really easy to use once you get the hang of it but, I wish that you can take a painting out of a group. But the rest is fine!
twizzeys - Mistake
Bought this by mistake and never used it and for some reason apple won’t refund me. 😬
Insta1318 - Best art art app for pocket
Great app I just need a way to have photos outside of the canvas for reference instead of on the canvas where I’m drawing
LOVE ROBLOX ITS AWSOME - Amazing
Its really easy to get used too and I love that for liquify theres modes
Save the tutles . com - Waste
Add more to this app it’s a waste of money
rat mans - Underwhelming
I bought this because I normally draw on my phone and the full procreate app had tons of support from artists, but there are functions missing.
It took me hours to figure out how it works, since the tutorial is not thorough. And there’s no possible way to import photos just for reference? Just because it’s on a phone doesn’t mean those features don’t work.
All in all, it’s a good app for doodling, but I’m disappointed. I expected a fuller app. I’d rather go back to a free program.

hosbaek - Love it!
I have been using this app for over a year now and its great! I only have one problem with it.. I wish it had a dark mode/interface. I have seen that the original Procreate app has the option for the dark interface; I sadly don’t have an iPad but I would still love to have the option of the dark interface. I have a problem with the bright light and have used Dark Mode on my iPhone ever since it came out and it helped with my migraines but the only thing is that Procreate Pocket doesn’t offer the same. I hope one day you can include this feature but regardless thanks for this lovely app!
Marissa L Caswell - Could use some more/improved features.
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. :(
TumblrEgg - New Update = God Tier
When I first bought Procreate Pocket, I was disappointed with the narrow selection of tools and brushes that I could use, especially when compared to the iPad version. It was very limited, so I eventually started using it less and less. However, today, when I noticed that my app icon suddenly changed color, I went to go check it out and was absolutely awe-struck when I saw the new brushes, tools, and redesigned interface. Now the iPhone version finally lives up to the iPad version and I now have more potential and creativity to unveil in my drawings. To the team at Procreate, thank you so much for this. It is a lifesaving update.
pppoopoolol - it’s ok
i figured once i bought this on my phone i would be able to somehow transfer to the iPad without having to buy it again on my iPad. it’s definitely more difficult to use depending on which iPhone you have. and you can’t really find anything without accidentally stumbling upon it. i would say my art is pretty good when i have more varieties of things i can use to make my art good, but really on this app you just have different brushes and erasers... there’s obviously more, but if there was a feature where you could make an account and link it to a different procreate app so you can use the iPad one without having to buy it again.. that’d be nice.. i love this app but is it really worth $20 just to have a different variety?
kalis0521 - Reviews are frustrating.
I’ve experimented with a ton of different drawing apps on mobile, and Procreate Pocket is still the best out of all the ones I have tried. It makes me really upset that this app only has a 3.9 star rating, especially considering people’s reasoning behind giving 1 star reviews. Almost every person giving a 1 star seems to be inexperienced with art programs, as they don’t know how to use the basic functions of the app. Procreate is so popular that even non-artists want to use the app, and they seem to get upset when they can’t figure out how to use the app. This is understandable but does not warrant a 1 star review!
Lightboxr - Awesome
Not sure why certain people are freaking out. This is a simple version of the ipad app. I can draw straight lines and outline fine. It automatically saves to your gallery and then you can export your image as usual. You can bring photos and sketches into it from your photos. It's not easy to sketch on a phone anyway, but this is working for basics.
Update: I’ve been using this app regularly and drawing with my finger. I’ve grown to really like it because I am making a lot of cute, painterly characters. I take back what I said about it not being that easy on a phone. It’s super easy, you just have to magnify your image. Soo fun!
P0tterluv - Love the new update, but I have one question
I love the newest update to Procreate! It’s great and I love the new brushes and tools you can use, I also love how easy it is to create palettes!
One question I have is I noticed that there’s no option to export a video anymore. That was something I loved to do in the previous version, I liked how you could download a video of the process of your artwork!
Is this option still in the latest version? If it is, please let me know. :)
Oh and on that note, I would love it if you were able to choose how fast the videos are! The ones in the previous version went a bit too fast for me.
_xParkourMasterx_ - AMAZING!! WOULD RECOMMEND!
This app is stupendously wonderful. I'm not sure why people are hating, but I'm sure that if I were them, I wouldn't hate for sure!
This app isn't a drawing app. A lot of people keep saying "I cannot even draw a straight line!!"
Seriously. This app is more of a painting app than a drawing app. There is a lot of different brushes SPECIFICALLY used for PAINTING.
I'm not even sure why people keep saying stuff that are related to drawing. The brushes are right in front of your face, and also, please look closely before you review! Because, I would definitely recommend this app to each person I know in this whole entire world.
jazmine🙃 - Pretty Great
I don't really have the iPad version of procreate but this app is pretty great! I do have some struggles but I just think it's because I'm not really that good at drawing. I recommend this app but don't take my word for it because once again, I don't have the iPad version to compare it with. This app has different paintbrushes, and... I love that! I've been searching for a great app like this on
the app store but I haven't found one until I saw procreate. I was afraid I was gonna waste money because procreate pocket cost money. But it was worth it! I do wish I had a bigger screen like an iPad but that's fine because I love this app!
Giagalcute - Ipad version is better
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.
Missyc77 - Needs a little work
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.
Jbqjbqjbqjb1$?1$?1'kneimc - This Is Best Drawing App on IOS, Even Better
I have been using this since the early days of iPad version, which eventually when it came out the mobility and easy-to-access grew on me. So there it was: the best iPhone painting tool money can buy. And as the new update came out, it really was a huge surprise to probably all of the long time users of Procreate Pocket. They really have excelled them once again with brand new iOS 11 design language and tons of tools which I saw last time on the IPad version. Thank you guys so much for making such a powerful tool that got me into a road of creating arts, keep it up!
UniLovesCola - Amazing :))
So for starters i love drawing! And i was looking for a good drawing app. So i was looking at procreate but sadly it was only on ipad pro and I don’t have an ipad pro or the money for an ipad pro so i just decided to leave it until a month later i found out about pocket procreate and decided to buy it today and i love the app! I just got it and I already know how it works i love how feature packed it is and i love how much its like procreate(from what I’ve seen from the people who have the actual procreate)! But i do hope we can get a animation assist like in the regular procreate i have no complaints!
tiredboidrawz - It needs improvement!
The app is fine, they have amazing tools with tons of things to choose, they even allow recordings of your drawings which I thought is pretty nice. They have tons of amazing brushes... but there is one problem... BRUSH PRESSURE! When I draw, it won’t pick up me drawing. I have to press REALLY HARD in order for it to show up the most..and when I press lightly sometimes the brush just turns big out of no where.
I went to pressure settings and I tried editing it and it still wouldn’t work...I went to my iPhone setting and turned 3D Touch on and off and it still wouldn’t fix the brush pressure issue and how the brushed react. And I’m just using my hands! Lol... please fix the pressure ;-;..
Emma Haase - Fantastic Drawing App
I have an iPad Pro now, but before then I had a first version iPad Mini (that couldn’t run any later than iOS 9) and a stylus. I was very satisfied with this app, and honestly it’s worth the $2.99 if you’re not a really serious artist. I would say that (obviously) the original Procreate is better, but if you don’t have access to it, I would certainly recommend it. There are features that I wish it could do, but for a not so serious artist like me, it’s a phenomenal app. I would use it everyday and if you have the money, I would definitely give it a try.
🐺FeatherWolf🐺 - Horrible
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.
Tsunamic Arts - Only the best
Procreate is the one of the best art apps out there. Pocket edition does have a few things cut out from the original iPad procreate, but nothing that you can’t over come. Loads of different brushes and options to do for your master piece. Don’t see the perfect brush? Well your in luck, their are downloadable brushes everywhere on the web with easy downloading! The blending tool isn’t perfect but you can choose a brush to blend with! Import photos for reference, save you artwork to different files, and time lapse replay! I couldn’t recommend this app enough, so try it out for yourself!
iZeldaFan - Awesome app!
You may see people reviewing this app with low star rating and a page of why they don’t like the app. Yes it is true that you may not be able to draw a straight line with the mobile app while you can on the iPad version. The mobile app does not have all the functions as the iPad version but it is still a very powerful app to be doing art on your phone. There’s a ton of creative ways to use this mobile app without being able to draw a perfect straight line.
I’ve done many art works on the mobile and iPad versions and I’m very satisfied with it.
yazzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz - Good
I love it except some things in this are not like the real one I think all the brushes should be the same also I don’t like how there is no animation and it really makes me sad can you please add that other than all that I love it 🙂🙂. Also it’s so annoying that it’s only for apple I mean I have an I phone but I not an I pad instead I have a Lenovo pc and of course I can’t get it and I was heartbroken because I’ve always wanted to create on the big screen not the small screen of my phone so if possible can you add procreate on any devise including other than Apple products thank you so much.
Biggiejuulia - There is a problem that ruins the whole experience
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.
lcmari95 - Amazing for Gaming Edits!
If you love to edit or retouch an Avatar/Sim, this app is perfect. You can easily add shadows and highlights onto your editorials. You can also export a time lapse of your process as well as an image.
I do recommend renaming each layer as you edit. And a third layer just for additional retouches. I also recommend locking the background and the avatar down so that you won’t be able to move them once you start editing.
This app is a great alternative to Photoshop. It has the same basic things that Photoshop has but you have to make it work for yourself.
mschultz - This is it. Nothing comes close.
This is it. Don’t waste your time with anything else.
I have one BIG request: I wish the distort tool was easier to use and manage at very small sizes. The controls are very small; using your finger fully obfuscates the controls and content as you manipulate it. Especially with adult male fingers. It makes it challenging to accurately manipulate items, for example, when trying to place text in a 3D context with perspective.
I’d also like to see alignment lines extending out from the distort bounding box to provide a perspective reference when trying to shape items for placement in a 3D context. That’d make it much easier to align the shape to the contextual perspective.
Maybe it’s a toggle-able feature, but some way to understand the perspective implications of distort while distorting would be AMAZING. (The guides are okay, but just not useable for placing small, context-specific items.)
Just a wish.
mherrera6 - LOVE
I started exploring graphic design & was trying to decide how I wanted to approach it.. do I use photoshop or a digital drawing application? Due to the price difference I decided to give Procreate a try & worst case I could move on to Photoshop. BUT I have not looked at other options since I downloaded Procreate, I’m obsessed!! There are so many amazing features and I keep learning more from the amazing support the company provides through their Q&A on instagram, they’re website & so much more. This was a perfect tool for me to start with digital drawing but also allows for more advanced drawing.
NoelJG - Savage Interactive, you guys are AMAZING!
I rarely write reviews, but I just started playing with the Pocket 2 update, and I’m kind of freaking out over how great it is. Thank you to each person who put in the effort to make this. You guys have seriously outdone yourselves! It’s like Christmas in May! Between the upgraded file sizes, Wacom stylus compatibility (which is working BEAUTIFULLY), full set of brushes, and the new color picker, this has just skyrocketed my iPhone’s ability to be a useful sketching tool and a place where I can start work to finish later on my iPad. Go team Savage Interactive!!! ♥️
The Lost REVIEWER - Good but a problem
I’ve been using procreate pocket for a while now and I love it, it’s really a creative and amazing app the 5 dollars was worth it, but I can’t export my images to my camera roll to post them on my social media, I can import images so I know they have access to my camera and photos the just won’t let me export, if the developers somehow see this please fix this problem it’s very annoying, another thing is you don’t have the paint bucket feature which is sort of annoying or maybe you do but I can’t find it, either way that’s pretty annoying. If you could fix these problems it would definitely be a 5 star app all the way.
aqua cantaloupe - It’s okay..
I like the diverse range of brushes available, and I’m able to draw relatively smooth line work with this app, but those are the only good features I can think of. The app crashes everyday, and sometimes I can’t even get to the canvas without closing the app out of frustration. It’s also rather difficult to work with, (I’m paying $4 for no layer modes and a confusing layout? :( Most free painting apps even have layer modes..) learning on it is really time consuming, and I feel like I’ve wasted money considering all of the negative aspects of the app. Overall, I think it’s just okay; it’s good for editing art from other programs and doodling, but not so great for drawing.
Ama2016 - Absolutely the best drawing app I’ve ever used
I’ve been working in digital art since August 2000 and in all that time, I’ve never found such a fantastic app as Procreate. Yes that includes Corel Draw, OpenCanvas, Paint Tool Sai, Krita etc. Procreate is remarkable in that it includes TONS of features but in an intuitive, easy to learn way. It caters to hobbyists and professionals alike. I’ve tried most of the other drawing apps, free and paid alike, in the App Store and by far procreate is the best. If you’re on the fence about purchasing it, let me tell you that you need to just do it. You won’t be disappointed.
Tyshay101 - Meh
It’s ok. I would like it a lot more if there was a help button or even a beginner’s tutorial so I would know how to use all the features. I was trying to save money with this, but it turns out I’m just wasting it because I’d rather just now buy regular procreate. I knew some things wouldn’t be the same, but this is a little ridiculous that you can’t even just add a help button. But, if you are just looking for an app to scribble on with a few fancy features, go ahead and waste some 5 bucks if you’d like. I would recommend the app Sketch if you want something a little easier to understand. Plus, it’s compatible for phone and tablet.
Amaya1937 - I LOVE this
Honestly I don’t get why this app has so many 1 or 2 star ratings. I haven’t had an issue with it at all. The controls are really easy to lean! and while it may take a day to get the hang of things, once you get down the controls everything is great! You can import your on photos which I think is amazing. I’ve tried a lot of different sketching apps but this one is my #1 favorite. If you want an easy way to color and relive stress I would recommend this app. It’s defiantly worth the money and I am very pleased with it 💕
Lunarfaerie22 - Good app with one problem
I've been using procreate on my iPad for years now, so when the pocket version came out I almost immediately downloaded it. It's a really good drawing app, and with the new additions it's only been getting better! The only thing is that I believe there may be a glitch; I've been trying to turn off the "background color" layer to save the canvas as transparent, yet it hasn't been working. Like I mentioned, I don't know if it's a glitch, but it's definitely been an issue for a few months now, which is disappointing when I'm drawing character profiles and portraits.
lonelygal - Different Experience
I mean, for the most part, this app is amazing. It's got cool features - like the iPad version - and you aren't that entirely limited as to what you can do as long as you've got an imagination. However, I'm deeply upset that the pocket version doesn't offer same techniques that could be used in the iPad version. For example, the color "drop" truck where you drag the color from the top right corner and place it where you want it. It's hard to color anything and if I want something to have a different color, I have to manually color it and spend even more time doing so. If this could be fixed, I'd like this app a lot more.
snowmanz - Good but weird
Everything in this app is great, but the opacity placement bothers me. Basically the opacity is in the adjustment settings which sounds ok but it is very interrupting because in most drawing programs the opacity is in the layers so it’s easier to turn opacity down on quickly. But in procreate pocket you have to select a layer then exit layers go to adjustments turn it down and go back to layers to go to your next layer. And it just bothers me that in this program it takes that long so i hope in future updates this problem gets fixed or a better work around is made.
K. Sheila - Need to add more...😁
Nice app 👍 I think this is the best app of all in app store. So if you put some tool more it would be great in future.. i would need more improve of looking good inside, fix some prob cuz sometimes it stuck I cant draw anything.. but it back to normal until i restarted the app again, need to put the numbers of resize brushes and opacity on the left side and especially dark mode! I want it on Pocket just like iPad version cuz I don't have it, it looks beautiful so I need some similar to iPad😊. Dark mode would be great«! Please add it soon..❤️️🙏
ArtAppsAf - Pocket
I have a issue with some things on this app, one issue is.. sometimes it lets me do more than one inserted image, but the other times i am only able to do less than one. Another massive issue I’m having right now, is a picture i made and it took 2 1/2 hours to complete.. I finished and showed my younger brother that i “Ruined” my art.. i went afk and my phone soon went off so I couldn’t undo the file i was working on-leaving me confused on how to erase the scribbles I made- also i’m still left with my favorite picture destroyed! And in the (help) section it told me no info! 😑😠 otherwise i think this is a good app to sketch and draw.
reeebelladjsnsbndsjrgf - great app
although it’s not free, it is by far the best drawing app i’ve used. it has so many features that make it so easy to use yet gives you so many options. it comes with a plethora of brushes as well, but you can even download some other free brushes if you’d like. i got the app completely new to digital art and over the past year this app has brought so much to the table. i’m actually thinking of getting an ipad so that i can enjoy even MORE features. i would hands down recommend this app.
THEPATTATOO - I wish I could enjoy it
When I first bought this app I had pretty good expectations. At first it was nice and I liked the brushes , but today when I got on the app, I started working on a drawing but whenever I drag my finger across the screen to create a mark it took about five seconds to appear, this went on for so long and whenever I tried adding layers, renaming , choosing different brushes, and using alpha lock it glitched so bad it signed out and erased my progress. It is so stressful and I don’t know what is wrong. I don’t know if it’s just my electronic or the app itself but for me it was a waste of money for something that does not work.
MR102918 - New Layer Limit
i’ve used it for month and it’s been great and i’ve never really had any issues, until today. i was working on a new drawing, just the base sketch but it had multiple characters in it, so a lot of layers because i like to separate as many elements as possible. and then i went to add a new layer for the next character, but it said the layer limit has already been reached at 12 layers, and i was very confused because i have artworks that have over 100 layers and i’ve never encountered the issue either. i opened a new, smaller canvas, and at 12 it capt out again, and it’s only happened after i update the app.
Jillian$$$$ - Good, BUT image quality BAD
I genuinely enjoy this app however two main things are bothering me.
1. Quality of drawing: when zooming in everything is severely pixelated and just awful. Adobedraw does not do this, I know it is possible for this to be fixed.
2. Line size: It would be lovely if the size of the drawing pens could go a bit smaller. It is difficult to do thin line art by constantly erasing half of the lines to achieve a thinner and less noticeable line art.
I do want to say this is a very fun app to use!! Thank you for making one of the only decent drawing apps available to iPhones.
Furzoia - There’s nothing wrong with this app for me! uwu
I have procreate on my iPad and I use that. I have used procreate for pretty much a while by now so I decided to get the pocket version of this app for my phone! I have a stylus for my phone so the app is just amazing. I can see that there are bad reviews for this app, but there’s nothing really wrong with this app for me. If you have ever experienced using procreate on your iPad before, this app may work for you as well because you will already know how to use this app!! Hopefully this review helps a lot!! uwu ✨
WingedDino - Waste..😬😕
Okay first of all, this looks nothing like real procreate.I understand its pocket edition but not 1% of it looks like the procreate that’s $9.99! I went into the app and found out how to use it. I couldn’t explain how mad I was that I wasted 4.99$ on this!! The tool that makes the size of ur brush, was all the way to the right and I couldn’t barely even touch it!! I started to draw and got to angry to continue. DO NOT BUY. DO NOT!! This app is terrible! If the owner see’s this. Please make this app free and give me my money back this isn’t worth it! 🙄🙄
leah 👍 - Review for ProCreate
This app is amazing I love everything about it. It is definitely worth the money for people who love to draw or paint. I like to make space scenes and there are lots of choices for colors and brushes but the only thing that bums me out is there aren’t any stars! If they made a star brush tool I would love it even more that I do now. I hope they keep adding more features to the app because it is an amazing drawing app for your phone or I pad and I use it on phone and it is still easy to use. Overall, incredible.
iiMhinne - Horrible
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 .
Madi Montgonery - It’s okay.
This app is VERY new to me and I have seen a good bit of people using this app to make absolutely, amazing art! I have no idea how to do that. I’ve tried and experimented with features and effects, and I still don’t know how to make the art other people make. I’m usually a good artist on paper. But on this app, I need to know how to use it! All of my things I make are basic, not that good, and I can do better! I just don’t know how. Lol 😂 these are my problems, not yours. But, it would help if there was a feature on the app to see how to use it! Thanks a lot:) ❤️❤️
game changer jayden - Keeps crashing (if that’s the right word), but still VERY good
First I wanna say this...This👏is👏the👏best👏drawing👏app👏ever👏and👏if👏you👏disagree👏you👏are👏just👏wrong👏
I also wanna say lately it’s been crashing, a lot... like A LOT... I’ll do something like change the RBG and/or Brightness and I won’t be able to do anything, I can back out into my drawing and still draw, but I can’t change things like the brush, color, layer, or anything else other than drawing with the same brush and color you had, so the only way to do anything is to back out and force close the page. After this it willl save your progress... mostly, it will get rid of the last thing you did (ex. Changing/ adding a layer, changing RBG, a line you made, image you add, an erase line, ect, ect)
Other than this glitch, 5⭐️ for u, but Rn ima gonna give it 4⭐️ cus of this glitch, if you fix it, first thing I’ll do is change my rating
-thank you for reading
Dud2008 - This App Is Amazing, One Thing Though
First: 4 1/2 stars. They just don’t have halves so just pretend.
And Second: This app is one of... no, not one of, THE BEST drawing app I’ve ever had. It allows me to draw and create art easily and share it with my friends and family. The only problem on Pocket is that there is not an auto shape yet. I sort of rely on auto shape because I don’t have a very steady hand, and it’s already difficult to draw on phones with my fingers. I hope that comes in an update soon. Either way it still probably will be the best drawing app I could find for a phone.
Cohl Alex - I feel this needs to be added
I love this app and the original one! But I feel after using the Procreate non pocket version for so long that in case something happens like your tablet lost, destroyed or stolen. There needs to be a way to save your art and progress to an account, like a login or something. I just lost my iPad due to it being destroyed and I lost 3 years of art. I just feel there needs to be a way to transfer your artwork and progress to the new iPad without iCloud or something maybe adding a login in or account process to the apps!
Jonathon Bee Baker - Excellent Excellent and More Excellent
This is an impressive update from the Procreate folks. I liked it before but now that it’s nearly the same as the IPad version I LOVE it. The color goes on smooth even when using my big sausage fingers. And the slight pressure sensitivity is beautiful. Makes me wish there was an IPhone 8++ to work it on. Love having all of the brushes and customization available to me and the addition of the selection and transform tool is a dream come true.
Thanks Savage. Like Metallica scratched into a high school desktop. You guys “RULZ”
Littlefoot gamer hd 3 - It’s great... but
I wanted procreate for the iPad and got 10$ and wanted to pay for it but it won’t let me... the app is 9.99$ and I got 10$... why won’t it give it to me... I’m sad coz I got the money and the app won’t download... so I got this just to write this and it’s a bit cheaper... I tried it and it has most of the features... but idk coz all the icons are bigger... soooo Idk WHY DID THE APP NOT DOWNLOAD when I had enough... now I’m here depressed... that I don’t have the app... procreate is what I want and this is a small step I guess...😞 it’s a good app tho.
game llllloooovvvveeeerrrrrr😍 - The best drawing app out there
One of my friends, was talking about how much she loved doing digital art on ibis paint, so I downloaded it, and it was ok, but there were so many features, that it didn’t feel natural. I downloaded Procreate Pocket, and I immediately fell in love. The simple features are nice and easy. The way you can turn a bad circle into a perfect one, is astonishing. The only thing I would like to see is an animation option, like on the original Procreate. But the game overall is great, and btw the blending tool is great
heonestly - Sensitivity is killing me!
I’ve heard a lot of great things about Procreate but I’m afraid I’m disappointed. My stylus is not reacting to the app accurately. It works fine with other drawing apps I have and in general, but for some strange reason it’s not responding as well to Procreate Pocket. I have tried cleaning my screen and drawing with my stylus with it directly pointing onto the screen, but it’s just not going as smoothly as I want it to be. I tried looking for a main menu for settings to adjust the sensitivity but there’s none! I would love to experience Procreate and hop onto the dreamboat, but I am sad to say that I cannot due to my limited experience. If you, staff, could help me, I would be delighted. Thank you!
