- 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.

- 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.❤️

- 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.

- 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.

- 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

- 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.

- 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!

- 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.

- Not that bad :) just some a minor inconvenience

I’ve been using procreate pocket for a couple of months now and I had no problems with the app! It runs very smoothly and it’s helped me improve throughout these months! At first I never understood how to use the app but after awhile I soon got very used to using it! Then once iPhone released a new software update (14.1) procreate pocket has some issues. Whenever I opened a canvas, it took at least a minute or 2 before it was fully loaded and then turned black but then I could work on the canvas. I did that to each of my pieces and I found it bizarre for it never has done that to me before. I have tried restarting my phone (multiple times) and checked if I had enough storage (and I did) but nothing seemed to worked. I deleted the app and reinstalled it back and everything worked smoothly until I added a few more canvas to be sure it was working. Overall, it’s a lovely app I just find it an inconvenient since I’m so used for my canvas to be all loaded (like a few seconds) and not take a few minutes. Thank you for your time.

- Good app, could use some features

I’ve been using ibisPaint X for a while now, and their tools and UI aren’t as good of quality as Procreate Pocket. However, there are some features this app could use, and some might just be something I’m not sure how to do yet. Anyway, while I was drawing my first piece, I got to the coloring and noticed that I couldn’t find a blending tool. I know there is a smudging tool, but it doesn’t have the same effect. Blending is a huge part of a lot of artwork, and not just of my own. I know there is a blur filter, but creating a new layer, drawing in one thing that needs to be blended, and using the filter isn’t as efficient as just having a blending tool on hand. Besides, sometimes I just need one side of a shape blended, not the entire thing. Another thing I noticed was that you can’t change the type of layer you’re using (multiply, add, etc.). These features are vital when shading and adding highlights. This may just be something I’m not sure how to do yet, though. Overall, I would recommend the app, but it is missing some things.

- Disappointed. Could have been better. Way below my expectation.

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.

- 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.

- 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.

- 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

- 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.

- 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!

- Awesome app but...

What I love: I’ve been drawing on my phone for a while and I decided that I needed an upgraded app. I had been using other free apps that you had to pay for the full version to get everything. I saw a lot of people saying to get procreate (not pocket), so I decided to get it! It has a lot of brushes, and YOU CAN MAKE YOUR OWN!!!! I love that aspect of it! To make it better: I love watching people draw and do tutorials, and I get so excited to do them. I go into the app and then I follow along until I get to a spot where it doesn’t have the same features of the iPad. Maybe you could make them the same and by doing that, make them the same price?? Overall: I’ve never drawn on an iPad or tablet, so this is a good experience. I highly recommend getting this if you ever want the best drawing app. 5 BUCKS FOR IT!! THAT IS AMAZING!! As I said before, I wish it had the same features of the iPad, but I would love to see what the creators can do next!!

- 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.

- 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.

- 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.

- 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

- 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.

- 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.


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.

- Great App, tends to lag behind iPhone updates.

I’d like to start off by saying that I’d recommend this to any beginning artist! I use this on my phone and have recommended it to MANY of my friends as I’ve been able to make some pretty cool stuff. It comes with loads of great brushes (studio pen being my favorite) and brush settings. On of my favorite features is that you can make your own brush. Overall, the mechanics of the app are convenient and easy to use after some practice. The one thing I’ve been having a hard time with is the fact that whenever there’s an iPhone update, the app tends to crash on me, and then I have to wait a bit for them to fix it. In fact, I’m having this issue right now (at a very inconvenient time as I have an artwork in progress). That’s the only complaint I have about the app. Otherwise, highly recommend!!

- 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!

- I love it, but would like to see what happens in the future!

I really love the app overall! Coming from someone who used PC softwares and ibisPaint, I really like using this. Everything is cool and I think the next updates will be cool and can make the app better. I have hard times making lines stable and I like how ibisPaint has a stabilizer tool. It goes for all brushes. You can increase or decrease the intensity. And you can always go back to drawing without the stabilizer which is “real time.” To use the stabilizer you go to “after.” I wish there was one like these in this app because when I hold for lines that I want they either give me arcs that are not how I wanted it to turn out or give me straight lines that I definitely didn’t need at the moment. Overall a great app and hope to see future updates! I will continue to use this.

- 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

- 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. ~Bean

- Pretty Good! Could use a Dark Mode, though!

I’ve been using this app ever since the beginning of this year and boy, I have to say this app is definitely worth the buck, and I’m very excited to try the IPad version in the near future. My only concern though is the lack of a dark mode for this app. Don’t get me wrong, this app is wonderful, but when I want to wind down at night and draw on my phone, the dark mode I have on every other app make it easier on my eyes, yet when I open this app— BOOM! I’m implored with the white interface and it creates quite a bother to my eyes. This is especially true when I want to create darker ambient drawings, and I find myself not really liking the white as it creates a high contrast to the dark drawings. If this app would have a dark mode interface, it would be the most wonderful thing! ^_^

- 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.

- Since it’s so AMAZING I will say what people have no idea of

I LOVE THIS I made a tons of books 📚 and there are so many things to choose from there are no in game purchases No adds the best thing a girl 👧🏾 could dream for!!!

- 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!😁

- 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.

- 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!💕

- 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.

- 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.

- 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. 💗

- 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.

- 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!

- 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.

- 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!

- 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.

- 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 ❤️🖌

- 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 😄.

- 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.

- 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.

- 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

- 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.

- 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.

- 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.

- 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”.

- 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

- 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 :)

- 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

- 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! :)

- 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).

- 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.

- 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!

- 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 .

- 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

- 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

- 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.

- 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!!

- 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!

- 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.

- 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!

- 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.

- 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 :)

- 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! :)

- 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! 😁👍🏻

- 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

- 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.

- 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.

- 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.

- 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)

- 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❤️❤️

- Amazing but not amazing

This is a incredible app and it’s very imaginative it lets you express you’re self and be free. The one problem is you are limited your self to only certain stuff you cans draw because you have a limited amount of brushes and brush sets. So I think you should combine procreate and procreate pocket together to have a even/equal opportunity

- 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.

- 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!!

- 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!

- 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 😌😌😌🦧🦧🦧🦧🦧🦧🦧🦧🦧

- 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 😊

- 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!😁👍🏽

- 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.

- 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

- Wrong app download

Hi 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

- 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. Previous review: 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.

- 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

- 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.

- 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

- 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! 😖

- 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.

- 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.

- 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.

- 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-

- 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!

- 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! Love it. 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.

- 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

- 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

- Undo button?

Can anybody find the undo button on the new version?

- 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 :)

- Lacking

Can't adjust my canvas size, and only 12 preset brushes?!

- 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. 😊

- 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.

- 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!!! 😭😠

- 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

- 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.

- 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.

- 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!

- 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.

- Decent

It's good I can draw and write pretty good......But you need to add more brushes


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!

- 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.

- Broken👎🏻

Crashes constantly, erases parts of layers by itself and in all not worth the money.

- Plz help

Help plz I don’t know how to get rid of a pic plz help me

- 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???

- 💜☺️

I love how smooth it feels to draw with it 👍 5 stars

- More brushes

I love this drawing app it’s the best one I’ve ever had but maybe having even more hair textures to pick from would be nice as well as having an easier way to colour fill something instead of having to drag the colour over to the spot I want filled


I love this app I’m currently trying to get the full version but it keeps saying I don’t have enough but I LOVE THIS APP PHENOMENAL :) HAVE A NICE DAY

- Great app but...

But it doesn’t have as many brushes I would like for how much I payed for this , also i see all over tik tok of a rainbow brush and i have been trying to get it. But other then that this app is amazing 🤩

- It’s good 😌

I gave this app a 4 because I love it and it works well but you should allow videos in there so we can Animate them I fell like it would make the app better then it is

- Just an idea

Hey i love the app its very useful but could you make it so if you’re on a different device you can still log into you account so that you’ll have all of your same work on every device? Its hard having to screenshot my art from my ipad to upload it to my phone and then back again once I've made changes. Thanks!! <3

- crashing

App crashes every time I use it. Waste of money, would love a refund

- I cant update to 5x

So my iphone is 14.2 but i still cant update plz help me

- How do o get the text???

I have been trying to write a text on my drawing and idk how to. Help me

- Bucket please

I really like it but please ad a bucket option thanks

- This app is bad

This app is making me mad every time i want to draw i can get is back i want a. Refund

- Continually Crashes

It used to only crash when I had 7 layers open and was trying to fill a layer with a solid colour, but now it’s crashing non stop for no reason. Try to make a brush stroke, crashes, try to change a colour, crashes, legit crashing so much. very frustrating as I paid for this app so it would work and I can create logos and pictures for my home business. Not sure what to do and how to make my deadlines when I can’t finish a project on this app. If it gets fixed, it’s an amazing app, easy to use and super professional. Just hope they fix this bug.

- how?

how do I draw it’s not letting me I’m new to this so I don’t know please tell me what to do.

- Pretty good.

I really impressed of what you have done with this app, but I’m a bit disappointed that there is no animation button. I know that there is a gif thing but it’s a bit hard.


Amazing, I saw a few bad reviews, but from many tik told it seems like a great app, I downloaded it, thank you for adding a tutorial, I hope more people realize how great this app is!

- 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! (Edit: is there a ruler!?)

- Dark mode

All I need is a dark mode plsss

- Bleh

I don’t really like the app much. I’ve had for almost a year now, I want my money back.

- From traditional to digital

The learning process of how to draw and use all the features is still on going but I love how easy it is to draw traditionally and then upload it on the app and color it all just perfectly blends both worlds.

- 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

- 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:/

- 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!

- 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.

- 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)

- 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 :(

- 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

- 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

- Dark mode

This would be a five star if you could set this to dark mode

- 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. -Katie M

- I don’t like how the way to resize ur brushes

Sometimes it doesn’t work so change it

- Love it

I like I but I wish if you could animate

- 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?

- 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??
