Over the past couple of months, we have begun to dive into the full capability of our iPad pro. After trying a couple of free drawing apps and not being satisfied, we decided to pull out our wallet and pay for Procreate. It only costs $9.99, so it’s not breaking the bank by any means. We are super happy with all the things you can do with it. It has a lot of brushes, an easy to use interface, and customization creators dream of. The app pairs perfectly with the Apple Pencil and as soon as you open the app and connect the pencil you are good to go. (And if you’re wondering by now by all the positive comments, we are not affiliated with Procreate in any way, this is simply just an honest review based on our experience with it).
As people who have definitely had to work towards becoming decent at drawing and lettering, the best feature of the app over using pencil and paper is that the erasing process is way easier. The trail of crumpled up papers that lined our living room floor as we practiced our drawing skills is now gone, and a clean artboard can be created in seconds. While we do understand the feel of a paper and a pencil is lost, the apple pencil, Procreate app, and iPad form a convenient combination to letter a few words and illustrate on the go.
