Available exclusively on the App Store, meticulously designed to be beautifully powerful, and painstakingly engineered for iPad — Inspire Pro delivers an incredibly fast and realistic painting, drawing, and sketching experience that you can take with you wherever you go and use whenever inspiration strikes.

Our proprietary painting engine Sorcery™ takes full advantage of the GPU to render brush strokes with brilliant 64-bit colour, laser-sharp sub-pixel precision, and insanely fast speed. While the strokes of a wet oil paint brush look beautiful on their own, the breathtaking blending effects of a dry brush will absolutely stun you. Graze the canvas with just a bit of pressure to add a subtle blur to your artwork or use stronger pressure to actually mix existing colours on the canvas together to create new ones.

Whether you are a budding artist, seasoned professional, or somewhere in-between, you will enjoy the simplicity and power of the most intuitive and compelling illustration app for iPad, Inspire Pro.

Just purchased

After many years of using Brushes I decided to try a new painting app. My hope wasthat I’d find one with a better variety of brush textures that could simulate real oil saint in all of it’s messy viscosity. That’s why I chose Inspire Pro, largely based on the reviews.

The paint handling simulation is very impressive from what I can see (I’m only a day in at this point) and the app is super fast and responsive. I was a bit taken aback to find out that there were no layers. But I’m adjusting.

One of the reasons I abandoned Brushes was that it was failing to evolve as an app. In fact, I believe it’s been abandoned by it’s creators. The very fact that you are asking for feedback shows that you are in business. I have no problem paying for an app or extra features.

Keep up the good work.

Hi Dave,

Our apologies for getting a reply to this so late, thank you for the excellent review! We love your Inspire Pro artwork on Insta and are so glad that you gave the app a chance. Rest assured we are hard at work on improving Inspire Pro with new features, based on excellent customer feedback such as yours.

Great program! I like that it’s easy to learn, so you can concentrate on your artwork instead of figuring out how to use it.

Hi Rrainbunny,

Thank you for the excellent review, we have worked hard on designing Inspire Pro so that it is easy to learn, so it's awesome to hear that you were able to pick it up pretty quick!

Thanks again,

Pretty Good

Could be better if you could reset individual settings. A selector/cut tool would be extremely useful as well to cut and move pieces within the canvas.

Developer Response ,

Hi Rapid_Kick,

Thanks for the great review and excellent feedback, much appreciated! I have added individual brush setting reset to our list of customer requested features that we look at for each update and I also added a vote on the selector/cut tool feature for you as well since we already had it on our list.

Thanks again,
