Savage Interactive has released a significant update to its iPad illustration app Procreate, bringing a new visual design and additional drawing, layering, and transformation tools. The app also now includes support for the 64-bit A7 processors found on the iPad Air and iPad Mini with Retina Display, as well as a new ultra-high definition 4K canvas size.
Procreate is the most powerful and intuitive digital illustration App available for iPad. It’s packed with features artists love, from true-to-life sets of pencils, inks and brushes, through to advanced layer compositing, 64-bit performance and unique digital tools.
Procreate now includes game-changing GPU accelerated filters and adjustments, offering a whole new dimension of expression. Artists can now apply colour adjustments, gaussian blur, sharpen – and more – all in real time.
The app saw its last major update in August, bringing 1080p HD canvas recording, and was also notable for winning an Apple Design Award at WWDC 2013. Procreate is $5.99 and can be downloaded from the App Store. [Direct Link]

I've been using ProCreate for a couple of years now. I work in advertising and it's great tool for storyboarding ideas for TV commercials. It's great to have preset canvas sizes for 16X9 and 4K for this very reason. I'm looking forward to getting stuck into ProCreate 2. The blurring and sharpening alone will be a great help. This app is on the way to becoming a great all-round image editor.
Best app on the iPad.
Might have been a better idea to choose a resolution that's a multiple of the iPad's screen resolution in order to maintain fidelity when you're looking at your illustration in full-screen.
No, seriously, what an odd name.
Agreed, though the stylization of it is always something like Procreate.
Something to think about. However I love the Cintiq portable device and think its handy for "on the go" conceptual work and flesh it out at the studio. I mean would you be doing secret projects on an NDA at a coffeeshop with the tablet? But MBA with a standard tablet hooked to it is an idea and even though I've an iMac already. My PowerBook g4 titanium is way outdated for this work now :/.
But if I take my Wacom tablet for the MBA then that's not a bad idea. I would have to copy and install apps on it and both machines would have the same files.
One reason I use Dropbox with my 1g iPad to store my conceptual art via sketchbook pro or procreate.
