Drawing App 'Procreate Pocket' Available for Free Through Apple Store App

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.

To get the app, make sure to follow these instructions:


  1. Open the Apple Store app.

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

  3. Scroll down to "iPhone Upgrade Program."

  4. Swipe left three times until you see the Procreate icon.

  5. Tap the icon.

  6. Choose "Download now for free."

  7. When taken to the App Store, enter your password and then click "Redeem." The app will start downloading automatically.
Alternatively, the app can also be accessed by scrolling to the bottom of the "Featured" tab and tapping on the small banner that says "Download Procreate free."

Apple has offered several free apps through its own Apple Store app in the past, including Day One 2. The deal only pertains to the iPhone version of Procreate, normally priced at $2.99. [Direct Link]

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?

Same issue for me. Perhaps it is 6S exclusive? I don't have a "Stores" tab nor is there an "iPhone Upgrade Program" showing in my app store at all.


It isn't in the App Store. It's in the Apple Store app: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/apple-store/id375380948?mt=8

Well guess what? The Apple Store no longer works for anyone running iOS 8 or less. How am I supposed to shop for products on my iPhone 4?
Now they are forcing users to buy a new phone else they can't shop for a new computer. Insane

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.

Are you kidding me? This is crazy. I have no use for the app on my iPhone.

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

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

I got stuck at
[LIST=1]
* Tap "Stores" on the tab bar at the bottom of the app.

Yeah, nah.

Then I switched to an iPhone.

I got stuck at

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.
