Apple made popular drawing and sketching app Procreate Pocket available for free for a limited time from the Apple Store app for iOS.
The sketching app is a “must-have” for artists and for ordinary enthusiasts, as it offers a wide range of painting, sketching, and drawing tools for making art on the iPhone.
“Procreate lets you generate high-caliber artwork at a blistering pace using robust layers system, stunning filters, and thousands of importable brushes. A must have for serious artists and enthusiasts alike.”
Users of the iPhone 6s can also enjoy the app’s 3D Touch pressure sensitivity. Procreate Pocket can also be used with an Apple Watch for selecting brushes and tools, picking from color swatches and executing general app commands. The app includes 12 brush types and allows users to download and import additional tools. Like the iPad app, Procreate Pocket records a clip of an artist’s creative process in 1080p. The results then can be shared via iCloud Drive, AirDrop and AirPrint in .procreate, PSD, JPG and 24-bit PNG formats.
If you want to doanload Procreate for free, make sure you have the Apple Store app on your device. Then, scroll to the bottom of the “Featured” tab and tap on the small banner that says “Download Procreate free.”
