What?
by Huscbhourowbh on 2019/02/16 18:29
I like this app and all that, but I have had a problem a minute ago and I need help. I was just using the dropper tool and I needed a skin color I already used. I did and then I used the color at it was 50 percent lighter than it was before: then I used it again and it was black! Every color I use is darker than it is or lighter. I am not really liking this app and it makes me kinda wanna crush my phone because of how frustrated I am! I have looked up so many tutorials and nothing works. I’m giving this a 2 because it’s not the best at all... for one of the best apps for drawing it needs to improve a lot. I’d rather use sketchbook over this.
Disgusting
by shia2700413 on 2019/02/15 21:53
I zoom in it’s all pixels and I got soooooo mad and can you put the pro create for free please thank you
Import Feature
by AiVeelution on 2019/02/15 16:13
I LOVE the iPad app. That said... They really need to add a feature where I can import procreate works from my iPad. And if it exists, it needs to be easier to find and use.
Doesn’t work
by imverysalty on 2019/02/15 01:39
It does not work I can’t do anything I make a new doc then I can’t even draw not worth it
Quick shape is needed badly in this app! Soon
by UncoolRose on 2019/02/14 10:52
All I’m asking is that you put quick shape in the app like on iPad. Not sure why it’s not in the first place. Everything should be the same on the iPad and iPhone. At least quick shape. So please add it ASAP. It’s bot just me who wants it too.
Conflicted
by youchooseforme on 2019/02/14 07:09
The app is great I can't lie , I bought the app at least it should be given with all the features on the iPhone by that I mean not having to buy extra features . Like what's the point of you have to keep purchasing , I'm not a rich person to keep buying extra things. From Cindy
Mirror effect?!
by Aursiia on 2019/02/12 13:53
Where is the mirror effect it’s just weird how are we supposed to make designs
I love it!
by Visurant on 2019/02/11 17:52
I like it a lot! Especially where it lets me create my own brushes! I can make the ones it’s missing :)
Opinion
by Because I want to try it out on 2019/02/10 15:53
This is a good app but it is hard to use. I tried to use it for the first time today, but it’s hard. I know it’s my first time. I maybe need to get used to it. No hate, No offense. I like this app.
Very expensive for such a primitive app
by PerpetualSkeptic on 2019/02/10 00:14
It has good brushes and color choices, but lacks ability to draw lines and circles or other shapes - other than by doing it freehand yourself. I bought it based on a friend’s recommendation (she had used it on ipad) - but looks like the phone version is very different from the ipad one. I may try ipad sone day, but on the phone I sure wish I had read more reviews before plunking the 5 dollars.
need updates
by isonooby on 2019/02/09 23:51
its so hard to outline when fansigning because we pocket kingdom dont have autoshape. please update procreate
Pretty good
by this anonymous person 123 on 2019/02/09 21:23
This is the best drawing app I’ve used so far and it’s pretty good. The only thing I want is for them to add an undo and redo button because using two fingers to undo is impossible because it always picks it up as more drawing. Pleeeeaaassssseee fix this
Apple
by chychy_tiff on 2019/02/09 14:17
So may I pls get a refund I have a iPad and this app does not work...Thank you
Best drawing app ever!
by MHuseinov on 2019/02/08 06:11
Very useful and friendly interface. Amazing brushes. Once you get used to it, you can not draw on other apps. Thank you guys for creating that amazing app!
not worth the money
by Liam Christopher on 2019/02/07 23:19
there are WAY better free apps out there. dont pay for procreate. medibang has infinitely better features. such as a stabilizer, shape maker, custom canvas sizes, and more. also, maximum ten layers? are you serious? for a PAID app? i want my money back.
Best art app ever!
by Someone who loves roblox on 2019/02/07 00:02
Even thought it was 5.00 USD, it was totally worth it!
Getting buggy
by Runner5 + Pet on 2019/02/05 17:48
After about 30 minutes on and off into a drawing, the color wheel doesn’t come up anymore and I cant change the color I want to use.( unless i use the eyedropper tool where you touch a color on the canvas and it automatically switches to that color. When i need to add a new color I’m stuck.) Other than that i hope the symmetry tool gets added over to this version, and I still recommend it as a tool to help you understand and sharpen your digital art.
Ok🙄
by puppylover_coookies on 2019/02/03 22:51
I hate how u have so many advantages if u have a iPad
I’m confused
by TheRealBenBob on 2019/02/02 12:06
Does this cost a monthly fee or is it a one time purchase.
Buggy
by riley mola on 2019/02/01 05:09
very great features but sometimes hard to use because of bugs and glitching.
No A Happy Customer
by Valdito on 2019/02/01 03:49
A while back I emailed the developers. I had asked a question and my question was when were they going to bring some features to the Pocket App. They replied by saying that it would be before Christmas. They would do a major update... That was back in October 2018, now we are entering February 2019 and we are still wait for that major update... smh thanks for lying to your customer. where’s symmetry for this app?
I don't know
by Knoxipoo on 2019/01/27 03:20
I'm kinda disappointed because I've seen many tutorials on YouTube using procreate and it shows so many cool features And then the one on my phone doesn't have everything the one on the iPad does. Its cool but since my phones so tiny its hard to work with.😕
Hard to use...
by Shonemeister on 2019/01/25 13:19
I can still make good art with this app, but some of the brushes are always coming out bigger than the canvas, and it’s very confusing to fix in the setting because there is to much. I can’t make a circle, I don’t know how to blend colors with the brushes, and whenever I search up how to use it on phone the only things that come up are tablet tutorials because no one use the phone. I don’t think this app is worth $4.99, at least not for the phone. The tablet is much better, the iPhone version doesn’t seem like the way to go. It’s not bad, but not really all that great either.
Please fix the bugs and glitches
by 🎂🍩🍨🍼🍨🍣🎂🎈 on 2019/01/24 01:09
This app is amazing and totally worth the it crashes and glitches please fix it
Concerned about one thing.
by Dusk776 on 2019/01/23 22:33
This is gonna be short and i hope someone answers it, but why isn’t there any Quick Shape/Auto Shape option on the Pocket version?
Phenomenal drawing app for iPhone
by npath on 2019/01/22 04:00
This is now the best art app for mobile. Fantastic drawing tools!
Doesn’t fit screen!
by Jia Printz on 2019/01/21 15:30
Hello everyone! I have purchased this app on an iPad 6th generation and it has a big screen. Does not fit! When I installed it and opened the app it was the size of my phone screen . It was so small that I could not draw! Editor please respond.
help
by Swag60000 on 2019/01/21 05:18
help how do I change the opacity of a layer (it’s an ok app)
Not bad once you get use to it
by Self insert on 2019/01/20 23:58
At first it wasn't that great, but I don't think it's worth all the rage, I actually quite like it and there tools and all. The only thing I would complain about is the redo and undo things, just put it on the screen to make it easier for people, that's all.
uhhh

i know this sounds crazy but, aDD CLIPPING LAYERS ALREADYYYYYSHBSB
Please read......
by Tord_Red_Leader on 2019/01/19 17:48
This isnt fair... people on the ipads and such have more access with the Preference settings!! They get to change their screen color to either black or white but us iphone users are stuck with the stupid white screen and it hurts my eyes! Then they have a bar instead of circles for their size of the brush but we have the stupid circles! Then when you draw a circle and you wait for a bit and then it forms a perfect circle! but when i do it, it just turns into a straight line! Ive tried everything to make a perfect circle but it turns out at a stupid line! Please let us have more access! its so freaking annoying to see other artists have more power with the settings then us iphone users! the app is great and all but its just not fair...

by mherrera6 on 2019/01/18 19:24
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.
PleSe get a symmetry tool
by pan.pan.pan.panda on 2019/01/17 12:47
Please.
Yes
by Pancake_27484481$ on 2019/01/17 01:43
Ughh this app has so much potential pls do more! I love using it even though I am kinda a newbie. Just a quick comment pls to do a text tool it’s hard to import a text or even write it. Also include cool fonts and customizable features for text like sizing, italics, etc.
really good app but

👏 WHERE 👏 ARE 👏 THE 👏 CLIPPING 👏 MASKS👏
Fun, but complicated
by Rey_F. on 2019/01/12 02:22
I like Procreate! I’ve been looking for a high quality digital drawing app for a little while and this one seems to work for me! Though, there are multiple things wrong with it. 1) It seems that I can’t delete things like layers or colors in a color palette, which is really really frustrating. I’ve been trying to delete a layer for about 20 minutes and I still haven’t figured out how to. 2) The app doesn’t have any circle or square drawing features. This can make it really difficult 3) the undo and redo setting is kind of dumb. There should just be a button for that.
😭😭
by idk_12 on 2019/01/11 19:50
I don’t like it because I can’t Chang the overall size of the brush RIP OFF 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭
Why isn’t Procreate available on the IPad 4?
by Iiiiick-iiiick on 2019/01/10 04:10
I have an iPad 4 and I’m not able to download because of the version of IOS that my iPad is, how can I fix that?
not pleased
by Whinzelf on 2019/01/10 01:19
im sorry, but the controls are very confused. i cant even figure out how to undo and redo! ive tried double tapping and triple tapping but doesnt work. to me, this was a waste of five dollars and i shoukd go back to Medibang.
Meh
by domos809 on 2019/01/07 21:17
Honestly.. I only bought this because a lot of good artists I saw used it. I was really excited to use it and it’s an okay app. It didn’t exactly live up to my expectations. I wouldn’t really recommend buying it because there is a lot of free apps that are a lot better than this app (my opinion). Before you buy this app try as many free apps because you might end up regret buying it.
Help
by Jake018318 on 2019/01/07 01:27
Is there a way to refund my money? I accidentally bought this app..
Needs to be updated..
by Superawesome :D on 2019/01/06 23:06
Why is the iPhone version missing so many options from the iPad version. It needs to be updated so we can get the same features the iPad has.
Love it but.
by Iris ;-; on 2019/01/04 08:26
In my opinion I think this app is amazing for people do show there art work. Like this app has awsome brushes but it should have more limit to the size. Also I’m not trying to compare in a rude way but there’s another app called I ibis paint x and they have a lot more tools to help and maybe the app should add just a tiny bit more tools.
This is the best drawing app ever. But... one suggestion/question.
by KoolCroco on 2019/01/03 23:27
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 ❤️🖌
don’t buy no matter how much you love the first procreate.
by OMG LOVEEE THISSSS on 2019/01/03 04:49
don’t buy! i had a lot of confidence in the creators even though people were saying poor things about it. it’s AWFUL it’s not as updated and it’s impossible to draw anything decent. ~~~ i expected more from the creators considering the app on the IPad is amazing. this is just awful and extremely disappointing.
My procreate only goes up to version 2.02
by Thehappydude on 2018/12/31 04:29
I got this app to draw isometric drawings but my version is 2.02 how do I fix it
Eh
by Claragomez123 on 2018/12/31 01:59
It okay, but I cant find the push, pinch tools like on the ipad so im assuming there is none?
Where’s the undo button??
by Blitzwing on 2018/12/31 00:31
I recently bought this app and was really enjoying it until I realized there’s no button for me to erase my mistakes. I would love this game 100% more if it had the undo button.
Love it But One thing
by 808KVH on 2018/12/30 08:43
Here's the thing There is no undo or redo button Say you're drawing and you accidentally draw a line that wasn't supposed to be there and it's all over your drawing that you worked so hard on. There is no button to undo that line you accidentally drew, and so you have to erase that line and make sure it doesn't ruin your art. Since i draw a lot, it would be a lot more easier for me to draw because i don't have to worry about ruining my art because of that one line. If there IS an undo button, then i have no idea where it is. But other than that. Everything's great!
Not Awful
by Jhtdvycvbb on 2018/12/29 20:13
This app is, overall, okay. However, I don’t want to spend $100 on an apple pen, and the stylus I already have doesn’t work with the app. Using my finger works, but I would prefer by a mile to use my stylus. In the future, could you make more brands of pen available to function with the app? In terms of use with the app, it works very well. Thank you!
Video???

5 stars. It’s amazing! Great for beginner artists, or just any artist in general. Love the variety of media’s and brushes! Although I wish the auto select would actually work right :(
Awesome
by Fabian19Marquez62008 on 2018/12/27 05:33
I love this app it is so fun and awesome I love it so much.the only issue is that the outlinening is very hard. But everything else is amazing.thank you for inventing this app I love it . Procreate is much better but this is so awesome .
Not worth it.
by Emmaennea on 2018/12/25 21:20
Bought this hoping it would be just as good as a free art app I use. You can’t even flip the canvas(witch is a major deal breaker in my mind.).
Editors choice
by willshack on 2018/12/22 04:50
I get the random sense of the app . Would it be a bad idea to make it more real and unique from a stand point of choice . I mean, people engage in this beautiful structure for what is does . Sorry ! The editor choice is not writing with the reason this app is great . Poor reason can make it or break it !
Conflicted feelings
by Sw1ft3r on 2018/12/21 05:08
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.
iCloud sync would be much appreciated
by jman98 on 2018/12/20 22:27
I have an iPad Pro and iPhone X both with their respective versions of procreate but I’ve noticed they do not support iCloud sync. I find this to be very odd that they have not already implemented the feature, seeing as how many other export and import options they support. I do enjoy the app very much overall otherwise, but would enjoy it even more so if the developers would so kindly introduce an iCloud sync &/or other file back up option for other services we may use.
Loaf app
by Davoos for life on 2018/12/18 17:11
This app is amazing I loaf it. It bakes my bread. It is very easy to understand and better than free apps. It is worth buying it. I recommend very much it’s the best drawing app ever!1!1!1
Works well
by MrAbrman on 2018/12/16 11:59
@developer, can you put this app under productivity rather than entertainment category for screen time?
Not working
by Sounkawad on 2018/12/15 03:04
This was the best app i had ever used for drawing and painting until the last update. I would try to paint or draw and its not working. The canvas is there bt there is just no marks. I change brush size, color, everything else there is just nothing. I would easily give 5 stars if it starts working again.
beautiful app
by marc.w.cardwell on 2018/12/10 01:47
the app is intuitive to use, powerful AF, and the included brushes are awesome.
It’s good but not great
by Treenaus (jasmine) on 2018/12/09 21:25
It’s a good app but as someone who isn’t good with what to do for how big I want a canvas it’s confusing since there isn’t any pictures of how big the canvas is next to it so it’s confusing but the app is good if you want HD drawings you just have to make the numbers larger but that means you get to make less layers to draw on it good but could be better. The drawing tools are confusing nothing makes sense when I try to create a new pencil or just tool lol
not ipad compatible
by Interdigitate on 2018/12/06 22:27
doesnt work with the ipad, no idea why we can even download it on the ipad without a small pop up or something to let us know its not compatible
Great In General
by AlterSebasian on 2018/12/05 01:25
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.
You might like it
by pac-man-777 on 2018/12/02 01:24
You may or may not like this app the app cancel does not work with that I think they should let you know that right off the bat. And I don’t think it’s as powerful as they say it is I would dare to say that the pictures in this app we’re done on procreate on an iPad not on the phone. Not as great as I thought it would be I thought it would be like my iPad but a small version I was wrong so if you think this is going to be that don’t buy it.
Love it!
by Willow_fnaf on 2018/11/23 02:27
I’ve been using this app for years and it has progressed so much! It is definitely worth the buy. Compared to other free apps Procreate is definitely better. The brushes are nice, canvas creation is quick and easy, and overall everything works well. There are a few things that can be improved, but overall I’m very happy.
Amazing!
by Adogandcat on 2018/11/23 00:41
This app has all of the features you would need to make art. I create anime/chibi/realism and this app exceeds my expectations! I heard about it and this app is really cool!
Hhm
by VlAdI1324 on 2018/11/21 00:33
Only complains are that you cant save your creations onto your photos and there isn't and dark mode option. Apart from that great app.
Best drawing app I have seen EVER
by artsyfartsy2627 on 2018/11/17 06:01
Hiiii, I had just downloaded this app a few days ago and I really believe it’s worth the money. Now, I’m no expert here but, I just love how many tools there are and there is soooo many things you can do. Also, I love how easy and simple it is (in a good way) because most drawing apps I find are too confusing and complicated which I usually uninstall it after a few days. If you read this then keep on working hard you guys are doin great!!!! :)
Honest Review
by Fragie21 on 2018/11/13 03:33
I just bought the app, overall the app is okay, though some of the brushes feel “clunky” to work with when drawing with larger strokes. Also the user interface is not very friendly. For adjusting stokes and opacity the buttons are halfway tucked on the sides which makes it annoying to have to tap on and adjust the size/opacity. The arrow to go back to other canvasses on the upper left corner is small and it took me hours to figure out that was the arrow to return to the main view and not an arrow for “modify”. Also for a paid app, it should have more features and utilize onion layers (unless there is a way to do this, then it is not very clear).
Really disappointed with this app.
by :Sparky5: on 2018/11/12 16:29
I’m sorry to say that if you’re looking for a good drawing app, this is the wrong app. The way you draw lines is way too jarring and slow, while I was tracing an image, the lines do this weird thing where they automatically snap to something. Meaning you can’t do strokes and slowly have to draw every single line. The tool selection is missing some very important tools that would make drawing more easier and less time consuming than it is right now. There is no magic wand selection tool that allows you to automatically select blank areas that will not go through lines. And if you close the app to go back in, your selections will disappear, meaning you’ll have to select what you previously selected again. I had to trace carefully in the lines of my drawing just so I could start filling it with color, which brings me to the next problem: there is no paint bucket tool. If you wanted to quickly fill in large areas, too bad. You’ll have to go and modify a brush and make it huge, and then fill it in yourself. As for modifying brushes, it is a hassle to get the specific size you want by just using a slider alone. This would have benefitted if there was a feature that allowed you to type in the numbers so you can get the exact brush properties you want. As for the positives, the menus are very easy to navigate, and it is insanely easy to find what you need. Undoing and redoing is a snap, and being able to quickly change the size and opacity of the brush is nice. Otherwise I give this app only 2 stars. While it is very user friendly with its menus, it lacks some necessary tools in order to make drawing artwork faster, and easier. I suggest that you use this app for small artwork pieces, and loose drawings. It is not good for artwork on a larger scale.
Pocket deserves more
by luhsosababy on 2018/11/11 14:40
Procreate Pocket is always the last to receive any updates and cool new features, waited half of a year just to get the consistent crashing fixed.
There’s nothing wrong with this app for me! uwu
by Furzoia on 2018/11/10 21:02
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 ✨
Outstanding!
by TopHatLove on 2018/11/09 04:18
I love this app, it’s helped me create some of my finest work. The only problem is that I can’t go back after I make a mistake and have to completely erase and redo it. If you could make a button like that it would be less nerve wracking. Thank you! Love it!
Take your time when playing around with the app.
by MayaMatrix on 2018/11/05 19:17
At first I thought I wasted my money on the app because I didn’t know how to use but I continued to play around with the app. I found out that double tapping the screen with two fingers is used to undo things. I also found of the two circles on the side helps change the size of the bush and opacity.
Not pleased....😞
by Jesus4u on 2018/11/05 15:09
So I just purchased this app thinking it would be cross platform on the 8plus and the iPad Pro. My mistake....so now I’ve wasted $5 purchasing it on my iPad...program is half the size of the screen even when expanded...and I would have to purchase again for the phone...🙄🤦🏼‍♀️
Trash
by CoffeeSketch on 2018/11/04 01:20
You can’t even draw without connecting to the paint tool, which is way to huge
Don’t bother with this app at all!
by Maykay2006 on 2018/11/03 03:32
Ok one when I accidentally exit out bc I made a mistake I go back into it and then wa la I can’t undo my mistake. I’m not happy with the way this app turned out... like I spent 4.99 on this and it’s not even good! Like I want my money back plz... I want my 4.99 back, it’s not even funny. Like I can’t even edit with this horrible app. It’s boring and makes me mad. I know some ppl like it but I HATE it. 🥴 I’m sorry but this just made my night miserable 😕. Plz can I at least get meh money back?? It WOULD make my day if I could get my money back... if not that’s just not cool... 😐 plz... I would like to spend my money on my games instead of this... Thank you for your time...
Amazing for Gaming Edits!
by lcmari95 on 2018/11/02 23:38
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.
Great app for testing!

I honestly like the iPad version because I have a 6s and I used to have a 7 but it stopped working but it was extremely hard to draw on the phone even with my stylus. Luckily I’m going to add procreate to my new iPad and Apple Pencil when it gets here as a gift!
Amazing Drawing App
by CutiePatches on 2018/10/27 21:39
It’s a amazing drawing app that is better than adobe sketch.
Pro create pocket.
by lashaay23 on 2018/10/25 15:42
When I try to resize my ink pens and brushes it’s not changing. It still draws the same. The line is too small. Can you guys fix it please. How am I supposed to do my artwork if I can make my lines and things bigger. Plus my texture brushes are not even showing up when I draw on the screen
time lapse
by MessyUpFilms on 2018/10/20 21:17
dear procreate creators, please add the time lapse/save video option back! i want to post time lapses of my art but i can’t now. can you bring it back on phones??
Undo and redo ruined??
by Taytay06708425 on 2018/10/18 21:05
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.
Meh compared to iPad
by Act10ng1rl on 2018/10/17 15:20
Compared to the iPad app this is garbage. Usually you don’t have to purchase two separate apps either. I feel ripped off of my $5!
Good but I have some notes
by znb27 on 2018/10/15 18:24
I like the app but I just wish there will be a fill in tool instead of needing to color in by myself, it would be easy and neat. And the undo and redo is kind of difficult because when I try to undo or redo I accidentally draw a point.
Could use some more/improved features.
by Marissa L Caswell on 2018/10/12 05:22
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. :(
Inefficient
by 0HUMAN0 on 2018/10/09 13:34
Many projects have been ruined because of not being able to undo.
Removes my work.
by writter 30 on 2018/10/09 03:09
The program kept closing on its own and then would not open back up. The information was partially lost.
Didn’t mean to purchase 🙄
by gdgthfvy on 2018/10/08 15:38
My daughter accidentally bought this app while on my phone, so I figured i might as well use it since it’s paid for 🤦🏼‍♀️ Definitely a waste of 5 dollars.
Great app
by hfriaofjrejao on 2018/10/03 01:27
This is a great cheap and entertaining app. Just please add symmetry.
It’s good but.....
by shaylee1359 on 2018/09/27 01:30
Ok so I noticed that there isn’t a symmetrical tool on the procreate pocket like there is if you have an IPad and just have procreate I think that iPhones and iPods and such should be able to have the same things as an iPad should
Just join SketchClub
by endangered intellect on 2018/09/23 14:42
They have more tools and custom brushes. It’s one payment of 2.99 no subscription I hate paying monthly to use mediocre tools.
Ipad version is better
by Giagalcute on 2018/09/20 22:49
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.
New Tools
by SugarZomb on 2018/09/15 18:10
I really love this app, but could you possibly include more tools like symmetry, liquify and others? Thanks!
Great App
by markart2015 on 2018/09/13 17:47
Procreate is a great app. I’m a artist and use it to doodle on my photos. The developers keep improving on previous versions. I’m very happy with he app! Mark
I just need to be able to create more layers.
by froggy frog! 🐸 on 2018/09/13 14:40
I use five layers at least for the eyes. I love the app but I just wish I could draw more than four layers...
No Ipencil ?
by iscrybei on 2018/09/12 06:30
Why even make it for the iPhone X? I paid for the app for my iPad Pro and loved it then bought it again for my iPhone X and my I pencil doesn’t work? What a waste. Please fix
Conflicted feelings
by Sw1ft3r on 2018/12/21 05:08
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.
Great, for the mostpart
by Ljs0206 on 2018/07/18 00:23
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.
Worst drawing app EVER
by Madiilyn on 2016/06/04 23:18
Do not buy this app if you are looking to create precise images. In my free time I like to draw chibi and cartoon/manga art on paper and transfer the image digitally, however this app is absolutely ridiculous. Everything is based off a grid and you can not draw a singular straight line to safe your life, at least not all in the same color. It's basically impossible to outline ANYTHING and it's so so so frustrating. The stupid app also picks up original colors as well on new layers, like for instance say you are tracing an image that you made before and this time you'd like the character to have blonde hair instead of black well good freaking luck, the app picks up the original hair color and presto, your hair is now brown even when the color clearly says you are using yellow.. As for outlining, I spent three hours straight on this app just to realize that the black lining of my character was grey or even dark brown in some spots and almost impossible to outline anything tiny without getting at least three grid block colored in as well. You have to tap each individual square to get the color darker. All my eyes look like they have crazy amounts of eyeliner and it's just bs. I'm so sad. Please do not buy this app unless everything you do is by freehand. You are better off using the free paint program on a laptop.
Disappointed. Could have been better. Way below my expectation.
by Ani~~~ on 2016/08/20 01:05
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.
Undo and redo ruined??
by Taytay06708425 on 2018/10/18 21:05

What happened?
by KDub0123456789 on 2018/09/02 01:48
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.
The Best Update Yet, Thank You 😁
by Joshua D. on 2018/05/26 00:30
This newest update to Procreate Pocket is fantastic in my opinion. It has completely redesigned the app and made this iPhone version to be one hundred percent how I wished it was in the beginning. Finally the iPhone version of the app feels so much closer to the brilliant iPad app. I just want to thank Savage Interactive for all of the time and hard work no doubt put into making this version so much better and so much like the original version, I'm incredibly grateful for that. The new brushes are a joy to use, I can really tell that the painting engine has been updated, everything is so smooth, we actually have more canvas sizes, plus, you can create custom sizes finally and just everything about this massive update is absolutely awesome in my opinion. Plus, you can finally create custom brushes, which is so wonderful I think. And create custom brush groups and importing brushes is so much easier in my opinion. All of this is just like using the iPad version of Procreate but amazingly on my iPhone finally. Thank you so much Savage Interactive, I'm so grateful for all of this. I finally have a true and real painting app for my iPhone and, again, one that works properly on my iPhone 6 Plus. I just cannot tell you how excited I am about this new build. Thanks for giving this app the attention it needed and deserved and God bless.
Almost Perfect!
by kalis0521 on 2018/07/06 18:00
First off, let me say this: I LOVE Procreate Pocket. It packs so much into a smaller device, all while maintaining excellent quality of every feature. I do have a few suggestions to help make this app the best it can be though, which I hope may be taken into consideration! 1. Layer Clipping. I have to say, this was the one thing that really disappointed me about Procreate Pocket. If this program added clipping, I would never need to use another mobile drawing app again! 2. Stroke Stabilization. Not a huge issue for me, especially considering Procreate is mostly meant for painting, but this would be a great feature to have. 3. Gradation. (I think that’s how it’s spelled, anyways) Again, really not a necessary feature, but it’s one I’d love to have! And that’s all! I hope the team will continue to add more content to this wonderful program in the future :)
Update = Good but Not Perfect
by YaHobGob on 2018/06/14 09:27
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.
WHAT HAPPENED?!
by Foggy365 on 2018/06/25 15:23
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.
Please read......
by Tord_Red_Leader on 2019/01/19 17:48
This isnt fair... people on the ipads and such have more access with the Preference settings!! They get to change their screen color to either black or white but us iphone users are stuck with the stupid white screen and it hurts my eyes! Then they have a bar instead of circles for their size of the brush but we have the stupid circles! Then when you draw a circle and you wait for a bit and then it forms a perfect circle! but when i do it, it just turns into a straight line! Ive tried everything to make a perfect circle but it turns out at a stupid line! Please let us have more access! its so freaking annoying to see other artists have more power with the settings then us iphone users! the app is great and all but its just not fair...
Worth 5 stars
by JoshJB95 on 2018/04/14 15:53
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.
Okay app
by Oof Beans on 2018/06/23 16:28
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
What the pros use
by Twzoner on 2018/03/28 04:39
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.
This is the best drawing app ever. But... one suggestion/question.
by KoolCroco on 2019/01/03 23:27
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 ❤️🖌
Good app with one problem
by Lunarfaerie22 on 2018/08/20 21:43
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.
Great In General
by AlterSebasian on 2018/12/05 01:25
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.
my favourite sketching app
by 03302017 on 2018/05/31 12:04
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!!
Professional grade app for very low price
by LittleMustardSeed on 2016/05/06 15:35
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.
Could use some more/improved features.

New Update = God Tier
by TumblrEgg on 2018/05/22 20:02
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.
Awesome
by Lightboxr on 2017/10/06 14:03
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!
Love the new update, but I have one question
by P0tterluv on 2018/05/24 13:44
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.
Ipad version is better
by Giagalcute on 2018/09/20 22:49
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.
Needs a little work
by Missyc77 on 2016/06/16 11:59
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.
AMAZING!! WOULD RECOMMEND!
by _xParkourMasterx_ on 2018/06/18 02:19
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.
This Is Best Drawing App on IOS, Even Better
by Jbqjbqjbqjb1$?1$?1'kneimc on 2018/05/21 23:36
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!
Fantastic Drawing App
by Emma Haase on 2018/01/13 17:38
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.
Awesome app!
by iZeldaFan on 2018/03/06 00:14
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.
LOVE
by mherrera6 on 2019/01/18 19:24
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.
Amazing for Gaming Edits!
by lcmari95 on 2018/11/02 23:38
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.
Savage Interactive, you guys are AMAZING!
by NoelJG on 2018/05/21 17:45
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!!! ♥️
Good, BUT image quality BAD
by Jillian$$$$ on 2018/04/18 23:42
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.
There’s nothing wrong with this app for me! uwu
by Furzoia on 2018/11/10 21:02
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 ✨
iCloud sync would be much appreciated
by jman98 on 2018/12/20 22:27
I have an iPad Pro and iPhone X both with their respective versions of procreate but I’ve noticed they do not support iCloud sync. I find this to be very odd that they have not already implemented the feature, seeing as how many other export and import options they support. I do enjoy the app very much overall otherwise, but would enjoy it even more so if the developers would so kindly introduce an iCloud sync &/or other file back up option for other services we may use.
Excellent Excellent and More Excellent
by Jonathon Bee Baker on 2018/05/22 03:02
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”
Hard to use...
by Shonemeister on 2019/01/25 13:19
I can still make good art with this app, but some of the brushes are always coming out bigger than the canvas, and it’s very confusing to fix in the setting because there is to much. I can’t make a circle, I don’t know how to blend colors with the brushes, and whenever I search up how to use it on phone the only things that come up are tablet tutorials because no one use the phone. I don’t think this app is worth $4.99, at least not for the phone. The tablet is much better, the iPhone version doesn’t seem like the way to go. It’s not bad, but not really all that great either.
Honest Review
by Fragie21 on 2018/11/13 03:33
I just bought the app, overall the app is okay, though some of the brushes feel “clunky” to work with when drawing with larger strokes. Also the user interface is not very friendly. For adjusting stokes and opacity the buttons are halfway tucked on the sides which makes it annoying to have to tap on and adjust the size/opacity. The arrow to go back to other canvasses on the upper left corner is small and it took me hours to figure out that was the arrow to return to the main view and not an arrow for “modify”. Also for a paid app, it should have more features and utilize onion layers (unless there is a way to do this, then it is not very clear).
Can’t understand negative reviews
by Ekagrata on 2018/03/09 00:02
I started using Procreate on my iPad Pro... what an incredible app! I hesitated briefly to spend additional $$ for Procreate Pocket especially after reading the negative comments. Glad I decided to buy. So, it’s certainly not a comparable drawing, painting experience on my iPhone. But then, how could it be. This is a fun way to urban sketch, paint anywhere I find myself hanging out for a few minutes. It’s feature rich for an iPhone drawing app and well worth the few dollars.
Pretty freaking perfect!
by 20seventwenty7🐱 on 2017/04/19 22:51
This is the best drawing app I've ever downloaded for iPhone! I was a little skeptical forking over my money, but I was pleasantly surprised. I have the full version on my iPad mini and I love it to pieces. I love how smooth this app runs on my iPhone 5s. It's a very high quality app and has almost all the features of the iPad version. It's only missing Quickline and custom canvas sizes, which are even more minor features! Even so, those roadblocks can be fairly easily overcome—with a bit of practice it's easier to draw a straight line, and I can Airdrop custom canvas sizes to my phone from my iPad to import. Additionally, drawing on the 4K canvas is incredibly smooth, an enormous revolution from my iPad mini 1's (functioning) maximum of 2k x 2.5k. Overall, to anybody looking for a high-quality drawing app for iPhone, Pocket Procreate is at the top of my list!
What?
by Huscbhourowbh on 2019/02/16 18:29
I like this app and all that, but I have had a problem a minute ago and I need help. I was just using the dropper tool and I needed a skin color I already used. I did and then I used the color at it was 50 percent lighter than it was before: then I used it again and it was black! Every color I use is darker than it is or lighter. I am not really liking this app and it makes me kinda wanna crush my phone because of how frustrated I am! I have looked up so many tutorials and nothing works. I’m giving this a 2 because it’s not the best at all... for one of the best apps for drawing it needs to improve a lot. I’d rather use sketchbook over this.
Getting buggy
by Runner5 + Pet on 2019/02/05 17:48
After about 30 minutes on and off into a drawing, the color wheel doesn’t come up anymore and I cant change the color I want to use.( unless i use the eyedropper tool where you touch a color on the canvas and it automatically switches to that color. When i need to add a new color I’m stuck.) Other than that i hope the symmetry tool gets added over to this version, and I still recommend it as a tool to help you understand and sharpen your digital art.
Best drawing app I have seen EVER
by artsyfartsy2627 on 2018/11/17 06:01
Hiiii, I had just downloaded this app a few days ago and I really believe it’s worth the money. Now, I’m no expert here but, I just love how many tools there are and there is soooo many things you can do. Also, I love how easy and simple it is (in a good way) because most drawing apps I find are too confusing and complicated which I usually uninstall it after a few days. If you read this then keep on working hard you guys are doin great!!!! :)
Love the new update but...
by boxrib on 2018/05/22 03:55
I absolutely love all the features added in the new update! It’s so much more like the ipad now and I can finally use it for more than just doodling! However, I absolutely hate the light theme. It’s hard to look at. For an extended period of time and the light light tones make it a little hard working with colors because they make everything seem so much darker, I’d love to see a dark theme option like the original colors or at least a mid grey.
Drawings don't transfer over when re downloaded add artist profile with drawing cloud
by JorDANG! on 2017/01/02 20:51
I just got my iPhone 7 plus and I started new instead of bringing over my old apps pictures etc. so I re downloaded this app and had nothing of my old stuff which is okay..but I was wanting to see if it would keep the photos I just drew and it didn't maybe...it's time to add a "artist profile" where it keeps all the data and transfers from whatever platform you are on! Love the app but ADD A PROFILE OPTION TO SAVE ART! Thanks :)
A Great Addition to the Procreate Family!
by Lelouchzer0 on 2017/08/27 16:27
Procreate for iPad is already my favorite and quite likely most used app. While using the iPad is great, there are times when inspiration strikes and I don't have my iPad on hand. Procreate pocket has served as a wonderful pocket app used for coming up with quick compositions on the go! I love the easy to use UI and the seamless transition between the software from iPhone to iPad. The perfect tool to use for the creative mind! Keep up the great work Procreate!
Fun, but complicated
by Rey_F. on 2019/01/12 02:22
I like Procreate! I’ve been looking for a high quality digital drawing app for a little while and this one seems to work for me! Though, there are multiple things wrong with it. 1) It seems that I can’t delete things like layers or colors in a color palette, which is really really frustrating. I’ve been trying to delete a layer for about 20 minutes and I still haven’t figured out how to. 2) The app doesn’t have any circle or square drawing features. This can make it really difficult 3) the undo and redo setting is kind of dumb. There should just be a button for that.
Great app for a mobile phone
by Aquarys on 2016/10/11 13:08
Considering how limited phones are for performing precise movements, Procreate is a great drawing app! While it is hard to use for drawing very precise lines / outlines, it is easy to use for digital paintings and even digital manipulation! The zoom and layer features work great, and I appreciate all of the layer options that are provides. I think it's a lot of fun and makes my commute enjoyable! I would reserve your more serious drawings to a computer, though.
Don’t bother with this app at all!
by Maykay2006 on 2018/11/03 03:32
Ok one when I accidentally exit out bc I made a mistake I go back into it and then wa la I can’t undo my mistake. I’m not happy with the way this app turned out... like I spent 4.99 on this and it’s not even good! Like I want my money back plz... I want my 4.99 back, it’s not even funny. Like I can’t even edit with this horrible app. It’s boring and makes me mad. I know some ppl like it but I HATE it. 🥴 I’m sorry but this just made my night miserable 😕. Plz can I at least get meh money back?? It WOULD make my day if I could get my money back... if not that’s just not cool... 😐 plz... I would like to spend my money on my games instead of this... Thank you for your time...
