    Popular drawing and sketching app Procreate Pocket for the iPhone can be downloaded for free this week through Apple's Apple Store app. Procreate Pocket has a wide range of painting, sketching, and drawing tools for making art on the iPhone.

    On the iPhone 6s, it features 3D Touch pressure sensitivity, and it can be used with an Apple Watch for quick color selection. There's a full layering system, 18 layer blend modes, tools for adjusting hue, saturation, brightness, and curves, and more.

    To get the app, make sure to follow these instructions:

    1. Open the Apple Store app.
    2. Tap "Stores" on the tab bar at the bottom of the app.
    3. Scroll down to "iPhone Upgrade Program."
    4. Swipe left three times until you see the Procreate icon.
    5. Tap the icon.
    6. Choose "Download now for free."
    7. When taken to the App Store, enter your password and then click "Redeem." The app will start downloading automatically.
    Alternatively, the app can also be accessed by scrolling to the bottom of the "Featured" tab and tapping on the small banner that says "Download Procreate free."

    Apple has offered several free apps through its own Apple Store app in the past, including Day One 2. The deal only pertains to the iPhone version of Procreate, normally priced at $2.99. [Direct Link]

    Great, thanks for the 'heads up'.

    Also what's extra nice is that due to Apple being able to deal with the complexities of international laws regarding giveaways, U.S. residents who are 18 years of age or older are NOT the only people in the world eligible to benefit from this. ;):D

    Thank you for those detailed instructions, which confirmed for me that I am unable to follow detailed instructions.

    I got stuck at
    1. Tap "Stores" on the tab bar at the bottom of the app.
    Yeah, nah.

    Then I switched to an iPhone.

    I got stuck at

    3. Scroll down to "iPhone Upgrade Program."

    Yeah, nah.

    At this rate I probably couldn't use ProCreate anyway.

    But thanks again. Those really were good instructions.

    I'm pleased to say it worked here in the UK at least, yes. :)

    For me, I got to the Stores tab in the iPhone app, scrolled the bottom of the page, and then just had to swipe to the left for the page with the free app offer on. I tapped on that, then I got the big green download for free link as described. Perhaps the precise layout differs between countries.

    So I'm redownloading the Apple Store app again then delete once I downloaded the app. The last time I did the same thing is with the Day One 2 app. :D

    The App Store app for iPad seems to indicate the iPad version of procreate is also free, but once you redeem the code you apparently only get the iPhone version for free. Is that a glitch or am I missing something?

    I have downloaded about 8 or maybe more free apps in the app, before they used to a lot more apps, now it takes a while.
    I thought the last one might have been the last, but its good to know they are still doing the free app!
    I do the same thing w the starbucks app, w that one its almost weekly a free app.

    You have to swipe from right to left on that picture of the 'iphone upgrade program picture" until you see the free app picture, should be the fourth pic.

    I'm wondering that as well. I really wish the iPad version was free as well, but looks like it will only redeem the iPhone version. Oh well. I've been thinking of buying Procreate, might as well just do it, $6 is fair enough for great iPad software.

    For the UK change store to US then scroll down on Featured tab. You may also have to search for New York on the store tab. You'll see the Procreate link eventually! Worked for me and downloading now.

    Worked fine for me in the UK without having to change location (link was about 3/4 the way down the page on the featured tab)

    Same issue for me. Perhaps it is 6S exclusive? I don't have a "Stores" tab nor is there an "iPhone Upgrade Program" showing in my app store at all.
