    The Procreate app for iOS was today updated to version 4.1, introducing several major new features that will enhance the drawing and art creation experience on the iPad.

    A new Metal 2-powered Liquify feature lets artists push, pull, expand, pinch, and twirl their art using either touch-based gestures or Apple Pencil pressure for more control.


    The Symmetry Drawing Guide in Procreate 4.1 lets users mirror strokes as they paint, with customizations that include half, quadrant, or radial devision with both mirror and rotational modes. Symmetry can be used with any brush or paint tool, along with Liquify and ColorDrop for unique works of art.

    A new Warp Transform mode offers 16 adjustable nodes and depth layering, and it can be used alongside the existing Freeform and Distort Transform modes, while a new Layer Select gesture option lets users select a layer by touching the layer's content.

    The built-in Perspective tools in Procreate have been improved with 2D and Isometric Guides, offering more control over grid measurements. Drawing Assist also snaps lines to guides for faster, more precise sketches.

    Other notable improvements include Brush Set import and export, a 30-second time-lapse export option, and a color invert option for layers.

    Procreate 4.1 is a free update for existing users. New users can download Procreate from the App Store for $9.99. [Direct Link]

    If they could just add a straight edge ruler like Sketchbook I can switch back occasionally. Really like the ability to rename layers, which Sketchbook doesn’t have.

    Love this app, but honestly, it needs smart objects and canvas resize before I can use it seriously.

    If I was the CEO I would probably change the name of the app. ;)

    All new features are great, but what makes this update awesome for me is the new advanced gestures. Layer select is great, for example - it really helps the workflow.

    I just make a bigger canvas and copy/paste over to that, for now.

    This is so great. Procreate is amazing.

    The iPad just got a huge shot in it's arm for creatives.. Between Affinity Designer and this update. Wow. :D

    HAHA! Yes, I always thought the name was very odd. BUT it is still a great tool.

    ProCreate is one of the best apps I ever bought. even before this I felt like it was worth more than $10. If they were to go a vector app and/or a basic animation app (sort of like Rough Animator), I'd buy them in a heart beat. especially if they were similar pricing.
