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.

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

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?

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

I got stuck at

* Tap "Stores" on the tab bar at the bottom of the app.

Yeah, nah.

Then I switched to an iPhone.

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.

Attention: there are seperate iPhone and iPad versions and the redeem code only works once. So you have to choose for which device you want a free version.

Correction: the redeem code is only valid for the iPhone version.
