App DescriptionProfessional artists love Procreate. With its gorgeous interface and incredible Silica painting engine, itโs easy to see why Procreate is one of the hottest iPad apps available today.
Packed with 48 beautiful brushes, from true-to-life sets of pencils, inks and paint brushes, to unique digital tools, Procreate is a full digital studio at your finger tips.
Procreate paints fast. Really fast. The secret sauce to Procreateโs insane performance comes from the proprietary Silica engine. Silica renders strokes in 64 bit precision with a speed and accuracy that makes other software blush. You'll see your stroke blend, decay, and even smudge in realtime. After using Procreate for a short while, youโll see just how natural and fluid painting on iPad can be.
Procreate is the weapon of choice for creatives on the move. Whether storyboarding the next Hollywood blockbuster, illustrating a children's book, or just having fun, Procreate will put you into a league of your own.
