Apple has announced the winners of the Apple Design Awards – there are eleven winners and they’re all great apps but perhaps the one that appeals most to us is ProCreate – it’s long been a favourite app with our mobile app columnists and wonderful contributors to our Flickr group – mobile photography & Imagery. Take a look below to see all the winners and read what Apple has to say about Procreate.
If you haven’t picked it up yet, we strongly suggest you do. It retails for $4.99/£2.99/download.
Procreate is a complete art studio at your fingertips, exclusive to iPad. It’s packed with features that artists love — from true-to-life sets of pencils, inks, and brushes, to advanced layer compositing, to unique digital tools. Procreate is a powerhouse of iOS technologies like ARC, Grand Central Dispatch, and OpenGL ES which deliver state-of-the-art performance and responsiveness, 64-bit precision, and smooth 60 fps rendering of canvas sizes up to 4K x 4K. Procreate shares easily with Photoshop, Twitter, Facebook, Weibo, iTunes, Mail, Photos, and Dropbox, lets people preview brushes and other drawing tools before purchasing them with In-App Purchase, and uses Core Bluetooth to connect to accessories. Procreate earns an Apple Design Award for its technical, aesthetic, and creative excellence.
