Procreate, one of the best art apps for the iPad, has been updated to version 1.7, which adds a ton of new features, including support for 4K Cinema canvas sizes, a new, full screen mode, and a bunch of new blend modes including: color, saturation, hue, luminosity, overlay, hard light, soft light, linear burn, color dodge, color burn, difference, and subtract.
However, developers Savage Interactive didn't stop there, they've also redesigned the way layers work:
Added a fantastic new transform system:
There's a lot more too, including support for the Pogo Connect stylus, multiple swatch panels, a new eyedropper tool, and still more.
Procreate also still gives all the good, old fashioned, granular controls for things like brush size, opacity, and digital color mixing that many pixel artists grew up on, and in a way that just feels right for a multitouch device like the iPad.
If you're into painting, sketching, drawing, or otherwise art-ing it up, check out Procreate 1.7.
