Our App Of The Day – Procreate

Share

Savage Interactive today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of Procreate 1.01, their most advanced digital painting app exclusively for Apple’s revolutionary iPad device. Procreate might just be the most exciting digital painting app on a mobile device. We’ve taken desktop performance, added professional features and squeezed it all into an iPad.

Made for professional illustrators and amateur artists alike, Procreate uses the advanced Silica(TM) painting engine which has been custom engineered by Si (Savage Interactive) to deliver unparalleled performance and precision on a mobile device.

As our App of Day, all our regular readers know the trailer for this app will feature on every page of our site for a whole day. Just scroll to the bottom of this page to take a look.

Blend colours on the iPad like never before. Procreate uses 64-bit colour sampling to mix paint together effortlessly, in a way that’s familiar to traditional illustrators. The smudge tool has been finely tuned to react differently by adjusting the precision pressure slider-the more pressure you choose, the more colour will be pushed around.

Having 8 quality brushes built in is nice – importing and creating your own brushes is even better. That’s a first for a mobile painting app. Procreate has been designed so you can make a completely new brush in a few easy steps. The brushes possible in Procreate are limited only by your imagination!

Users will feel at home with a familiar (HSB) colour picker, eyedropper, and a smudge tool that goes beyond its desktop counterparts. On top of all this, you’ll find comfort in a layering system that allows up to 16 layers, the ability to merge down and up, transform, and show/hide. Another feature we’re proud to boast about is up to 100 undo or redo states. That’s right. 100. Let your imagination go, knowing there’s always a backup plan.

James Cuda, Founder of Savage Interactive Said "Procreate really is a first in so many ways for a mobile device-and in some ways, Procreate is actually further ahead than digital painting apps, on the desktop.

Procreate is easy to pick up, and yet has some of the most powerful tools, on any platform. Users will be able to make their own custom brushes from just about any type of image file-making creative exploration even deeper. And because a brush shape is treated independently from the brush grain, users have more control than ever before."
