Get Procreate Free, the Amazing Painting App for iPhone
Procreate is easily one of the best painting, drawing, and illustration apps available for iOS, with an amazing array of brushes, features, layers support, and so much more. If you’re even slightly artistically minded or just like to sketch a bit, it blows the iOS Notes drawing tools out of the water by a bazillion orders of magnitude. It’s well worth buying, but right now it’s available free from Apple for a limited time, so iPhone users can grab Procreate Pocket right now.
Rather than downloading Procreate free from the usual App Store where you typically get apps, instead Apple has tucked the download into the Apple Store app (as in, the store for the Apple Store physical retail locations and making purchases online). This makes it a little bit trickier to get, but if you’re artistically inclined or just vaguely interested, it’s well worth jumping through a few hoops to get your hands on (a video showing how to download the app is at the bottom of this post as well).
Downloading Procreate Free from Apple Store App on iPhone
This should work in most regions where you can download the Apple Store application onto an iPhone. The download is available until July 28 via the Apple Store application but is “subject to availability” with some terms that surely everyone will carefully read before downloading.
- Get Apple Store app free from the App store here
- Open Apple Store app and tap on “Stores” tab at the bottom of the screen, scroll all the way down to the bottom of the app until you see “iPhone Upgrade Program” banner, then swipe over on that image carousel until you see “Sketch. Paint. Create – Download the App Store Essential Procreate free”
- Tap the green “Download for free” button at the bottom of the screen
- Tap on “Redeem” to download and install Procreate on the iPhone
When finished, you’ll have Procreate on your iPhone.
Artistical skill not included, but who says anyone can’t have fun with an amazing sketching and painting app? Get the app and try it out, it’s fun, maybe you’ll create a digital Picasso? Enjoy!
Video Walkthrough Showing How to Download Procreate from Apple Store App
A fair amount of users have found it to be a bit tricky to download Procreate from the app as described above, the video below walks through the process.
Update: the free version available is Procreate for iPhone only. This is likely what has caused some degree of confusion with iPad owners, since there are two different versions of the Procreate app and, unlike most iOS apps, the Procreate app is not universal for both iPhone and iPad.
