Can’t understand negative reviews 5/5
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.
Great app but not for the iPhone 3/5
As much as I love this app I can only personally recommend this to be used with a supported iPad and stylus /Apple Pencil. Phones can’t do this program justice and it’s a shame
Abandoned for 2yrs 3/5
This app is alright but really starting to show it’s age. The iPad version has had all the developer’s attention and has gained so many improvements... Hopefully v2 isn’t far off.
Awesome app! 5/5
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.
Don’t believe the naysayers! 5/5
Great app- not sure why other users are having such a bad experience. When you rate Procreate pocket, you have to do so in context- this is a drawing application for the phone. Its limitations are tied directly to the limitations of the phone, so it’s unfair to compare to an iPad, or a drawing tablet etc.
I find this app perfect for what it seems to have been made for: drawing/painting on the go. Whether doing quick sketches or plain-air of something you see that insures you, or a thumbnail of a composition that you want to record for later exploration, this app is perfect. With phones that have force touch, the slight pressure sensitivity makes it even better!
My only complaint is how long it’s been sine an update, as having more canvas space for my iPhone X would make this app even better
best app i’ve ever bought 5/5
when procreate first came out in maybe 2013/2013, i bought it immediately on my ipad bc it looked like an awesome app to work with as an artist - and i was right. i don’t understand how anyone can dislike this app. the interface is amazing, it allows for so much adaptability, it has basically every feature that any competitors have but better. this is an essential for me and i’m so glad it exists!! thanks to procreate/savage interactive for allowing me so many years of creating amazing digital art!!!!
Omg I can’t wait 5/5
Literally just bought it and it’s amazing! It’s pretty different than the iPad version in terms of some minor functionality. Idk what people are expecting, it’s a POCKET VERSION. And for a huge majority of the drawing apps out there, this totally tops them all in terms of only being a “simplified version.” Also, if you know the short cuts from the pro version, it’s sooo nice to use and convenient. And yes, you NEED to look at the functionality of the app to know how to use it. It has many different opacity settings, brush thicknesses, and so much more. Honestly to the people who say that you can’t do anything with it, they haven’t used the iPad version. It’s purpose it for on the go art, on your phone...let that sink in
Couldn't be Better! 5/5
I don't know why people are putting this app down so much. It's great, easy to use, and in my opinion, professional quality. I've never drawn digitally but "Procreate" is helping me draw professional-looking art, and I couldn't be happier with it. Best birthday present I got by far!
A great scaled down version of perfection 5/5
Procreate in the iPad is epic.
Some people get frustrated thinking it’s a sketching or design app. But that’s not where it shines. Procreate is more of a painting app than design app. (ie, no text or shape tools, but infinite paint and texture tools)
Taking all of that and putting it on the iPhone is tough. But this pocket version is the best small screen painting app I’ve seen.
Bought it and can't even use it 1/5
There is literally nothing showing besides the create a new canvas option and the color wheel. No tools, no undo, no anything. Waste of money. If I wanted a garbage app I would've went for something that didn't cost me money.
Totally worth the money! 5/5
I’m not sure what others are complaining about- this app is amazing! I’m a beginner artist with a few years under my belt, and I use this app to outline and color my sketches. I LOVE Procreate! And I also love the fact that saving images(and speedpaints) is quick and easy!
One request I have is to allow more space for swatches. I would love to be able to create more, and organize groups of them by folders(I use all 3 pages of swatches, and each page is for a certain character of mine so I make sure to never accidentally vary on the colors!)
Not great on phone 1/5
Not sure what provoked me to buy this app for my phone but definitely regret the purchase. I prefer it on my iPad. 😕
Screen size 3/5
Can you please fix screen size for iPhone X . Will be perfect then
No options 2/5
By Wendy Darlin
I tried going to their site to import some brushes but the website doesn’t work, saying the page doesn’t exist. Very weird considering the link is offered through the app itself. Not many options for brushes so you’re stuck with basic lines.
Awful. You can’t draw clear anything and you can’t do a quarter of the things you are able to do on the iPad version.
No iPhone X update? 3/5
When is there going to be an update for the iPhone X?
Solid On-The-Go Sketchbook! 5/5
I don’t always have my iPad with me, but I do always have my phone! I use this to quickly scribble out ideas, then transfer the files to the iPad version for a full illustration. It’s a solid program and the creators do a great job at keeping both the iPhone and iPad versions updated.
Another ditched app? 1/5
As if Apple isn’t already in a breakneck trainwreck mode as it is,
allowing apps with subpar performance (per REAL, ACTUAL reviews!) — and apps that aren’t maintained (no update to this app in over one year) — is another added layer to a blatantly horrid company that is anything but the “Steve Jobs Perfection” we pay for, expect, and deserve.
I’ve had this app for about a year or so and I love it! But it hasn’t had an update in a year. I would love to have all the feature the iPad version of Procreate has on the pocket version. Or at least update it once in a while with new features. Other than that i love this app!
Please update for iPhone X 4/5
Love the app, use the full version every day on my iPad. PLEASE update this to be Fullscreen on iPhone x, its no fun seeing black bars
Fantastic Drawing App 5/5
By Emma Haase
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.
Nice app but one thing 4/5
Nice app but I need a straight line tool or a ruler to make straight lines. PLEASE ADD THIS.
Good app 5/5
No one in real life knows i’m a digital artist.
After using several art apps, Procreate is the best one: colors, tools, adjustment, etc is exactly what I’m looking for.
I’d recommend reading Procreate from iBook first (it’s free, woohoo). Otherwise, using this app alone would be frustrating.
Do not buy 1/5
This app is a waste of your time and money, first of all, you can't even get decent sketches at all, images for the product are imported and are even close to being able to be made, waste of $3, I am wanting my money back.
your app. 1/5
By Keonna L
this app does not work what so ever !! i want my money back.
I hate this 2/5
By Hazel winchester
It’s not as good as the one on the iPad and I just want a refund on this cause I This is just useless to me I’m sorry for the harsh things I’m saying I just don’t like it sorry
I have a few issues. 4/5
I love the app, it's really clean and easy to use. However, the fact that you only have two canvas sizes to work with is really frustrating, and I'd like to be able to edit brushes in the app.
This app has not been updated for over a year. Buggy on iOS 11, unsupported on iPhone X. iPad version is awesome tho. Shame the iPhone version was forgotten about.
Big Disappointment! 1/5
I have iPhone 8 Plus which is twice as fast as the iPad Pro. So why couldn't I get the all the professional grade features that iPad Pro have!? It not fair that I couldn't do many thing on my iPhone 8 Plus like my iPad Pro! 😡😡
I’ll give 5 stars for getting all the features from iPad to the iPhone!
Procreate: Great for iPad, Bad for iPhone 1/5
I purchased Procreate for iPhone after falling in love with the iPad app. Unfortunately the iPhone app falls way short of my expectations.
- no way to edit my Procreate documents from my iPad. I can’t even view them!
- no way to open pics and mark them up or draw. Have to open low res blank screen and import photo.
More Stuff 4/5
Procreate Pocket Is Great And All But I Feel Like You Should At least Add More Materials From The Original Procreate (Which Cost $10)It’s Great But You Need To Add More Brushes!If You Did I Would Rate It A 4.Anyways Thanks For Reading This And I Hope You At Least Consider Adding The Materials Some Day!
Crashes all the time with iPad Pro 1/5
I’ve been using this app on my old iPad and it was good, And when I decided to go pro and bought an iPad Pro I totally hated the app as it freezes and crashes every single minute.
I was working on a painting for several days and nights, and when I exported the the time lapse video I was disappointed, it only captured the last 2 minutes since last crashing.
Company said its apple hardware problem, apple said its not. So company is the responsible to fix this problem with apple.
If any updates came with a fix, I will change my review.
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!

Can’t draw on an image from your library
The ULTIMATE drawing app. 5/5
Procreate has every feature any digital artist could ever want. I purchased this app years ago when it first came out and have been using it consistently without any issues.
Need a apple pen to use 3/5
The app is okay but it can be super frustrating. You need a apple pen or any kind of pen to draw a straight line. It is super annoying on a iPhone but works better on a iPad.
best app to ever exist thank u jesus 5/5
By DADDYS PEACHY QUEEN
this app is amazing. literally perfect.
i don't draw i do some graphic design tho but i mostly edit pictures of lana del rey cause i have an edit acc (@babiedxll) and that app is the best and my fav out of the large number of apps i use.
FOUR STARS BECAUSE... 4/5
Why can't I create my own size canvas?! I don't like that I can only edit with the canvas provided even if it is 4K, but I like editing
/drawing in squares for instagram or just like having the option of making my own canvas size. The app works very well for what is for, this is the only thing that has bothered me of it... i even have the iPad version so I do like it... just Procreate pocket doesn't have these options.
A Great Addition to the Procreate Family! 5/5
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!
RIP OFF! 1/5
ABSOLUTE RIP OFF! I PAYED MONEY, HOPING TO GET A GOOD APP BUT I GOT AN APP WHICH HAS WORSE QUALITY THAN MY FREE DRAWING APP! THERE SHOULD BE A REFUND OPTION ON THIS THING!
Love this app, but why no updates 5/5
Please update this before it becomes obsolete. Give us in app upgrades, anything.
Absolutely Perfect 5/5
By Minecraft lover 2,000
This is the sole drawing app I use. I've tried so many other apps but none have been nearly as good as this one! So many of my wallpapers are made from this app!
It's so underrated! Don't listen to reviews calling the app bad and that the app doesn't work. This app works and is just as good as it's iPad counterpart!
I hope that whoever buys this app can enjoy this just as much as I do! It's totally worth the money unlike so many other apps! All the features come free unless you want to unlock things early, which will soon come out free with new updates!
It's so much better than most drawing apps! I hope that you really enjoy this app!
Needs Streamline Feature 3/5
I have the full version of Procreate on my iPad and it is awesome. But, this version is lacking several features that I find essential. This iPhone version doesn't give you any extra options on your brush like the iPad version does. The iPad version gives you the option to streamline your brush strokes which you need if you do hand lettering. This app doesn't have enough options to produce a nice result. If this app had the streamline option it would easily be 5 stars.
Best Drawing App 5/5
By M icloud
The only bad thing is that takes a lot of storage even if you are deleting your project, I don't know why. If the Procreate team can fix this would be helpful.
Best drawing app 5/5
Its nothing like the the ipad procreate 1/5
This app is very hard to use and not user friendly at all. Ipad version rocks, but dont buy iphone version.
This app was such a waste of money. If you want a good art app get medibang
First of all
Whenever I zoom in and out it tries to predict what I'm doing and it's super annoying. It zooms out when I don't want it to and zooms in when I don't want to
It's super confusing, the pens were nice but were so hard to control, I wish they were more steady.
I was really confused with the recording thing, I couldn't figure it out no matter how hard I tried to record what I was drawing.
The set up of the app is really odd, I feel like you went for of how the app looks instead of how it works..you need an app that has all of what artists need, something sturdy and easy to work with. And this app surely was not. I'm disappointed :( I wasted my money..
Keep up the good work! 5/5
I LOVE Procreate pocket so far!! It's been the BEST drawing app I've ever had and it's DEFINITELY worth the money!
However, there is a tiny problem. Whenever I try to make circles, the right side of it always cuts off. That's been my main issue but there have been many. Please fix this.
I love the iPad app for this one kind of brush that is has, but this app doesn't have that kind of brush and therefore my drawing style can't be used on this. It also annoys me that you can't create a canvas size, like on the iPad version.
Edge of screen detection problem 4/5
Using an iPhone 6s + and the bottom doesnt detect pressure, so I cant delete past artworks or import images from cam roll...
