Best app for drawing/painting on the iPad

This is absolutely one of my favorite apps on the iPad. I have tried many, including the recent Adobe Fresco, and Procreate still wins hands down as *the* go to painting apps for iPad. If you are artist, and you don’t already have it, drop everything and do yourself a favor and get it. If you are not an artist but want to stimulate your creativity, I cannot recommend picking this up anyway, especially if you have the Apple Pencil. And thankfully it is a once off payment, no subscriptions!

As well with V5 around the corner, the best may very well be getting better with the free update. Love the app and can not recommend it highly enough.

Great App but Missing RULER Tool!

I love Procreate and use it daily as an Illustrator and Designer - it is definitely one of the mist versatile and powerful drawing apps for iPad Pro with Apple Pencil. The one that really annoys me though: Why is there no RULER Tool or ability to drag custom guides e.g. like in Photoshop? It’s really difficult to accurately measure actual artwork size and allocate bleed for print purposes. A Ruler is such a BASIC Design and Drawing Tool - I cannot understand why Procreate does not have one? Most free drawing or note apps like Apple Notes, Adobe Sketch, Autodesk Sketchbook Pro, Concepts and others all have Ruler Tools - Why does Procreate as an industry professional Paid App not have this basic functionality? PLEASE LISTEN to your users!! If you had a Ruler and adjustable guides I would have given the App 5 stars.
