Procreate Pocket Coming Soon To Your iPhone

Procreate Pocket is a new app designed to give you the ability to sketch or paint your ideas, anywhere that you have your iPhone. Powered by Silica and with a focused feature set, Procreate Pocket is ideal for capturing inspiration anytime, anywhere.

Procreate Pocket will work beautifully on any iOS 8 supported iPhone or iPod Touch, but will truly shine on the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. What’s more, Procreate will be available in your pocket by the end of the year.

Currently Procreate is only available for iPad at $5.99/£3.99/click here to download.

History of Procreate, by the Developers Themselves


“Back in 2010 Procreate was originally conceived and developed as a universal iPad and iPhone app. The problem was that designing an interface that provided fluid painting on an iPhone screen, without getting in your way, was an immense challenge. Designing a product that felt intuitive on both devices meant we were making sacrifices in the iPad design in favour of the iPhone. We had to make a choice. Eventually we dropped the iPhone and developed Procreate solely for iPad.

Recently we found ourselves facing a problem similar to the one that inspired us to begin work on Procreate. We were using iPhone apps for concept sketching, but we felt that all of them missed the mark.

At the start of this year, we resurrected the idea of Procreate for the iPhone. Shortly after work began, we realised that we didn’t want Procreate on our phones – we wanted a new tool. We didn’t want to replace our iPads with a smaller device – we wanted something to augment them. We wanted the ability to quickly capture ideas when inspiration struck; to rapidly produce concepts, complemented by the tools we needed. Rumours of a larger iPhone began to surface, and we knew it was the perfect time.

In the third quarter of 2014, Procreate for iPhone moved into aggressive development and gained a new name – Procreate Pocket”.

    Procreate on the iPad rocks. The developers always impress me with their thoughtful, careful approach, in the app, and in their engagement with the users. From what I have been reading, they have taken a realistic look at the advantages and limitations of the different form factors. iColorama has taken this route, too, acknowledging that the iPad is not just a bigger iPhone, and vice versa. Bravo to Savage Interactive, the makers of Procreate, for re-thinking and creating Procreate Pocket. I don’t see myself using it, but I will buy it, if only to support the designers. I can’ thank them enough for the excellent painting/art tool they have made for the iPad.
