What is it about?

Inspire Pro is a little bit different from the previous apps … this app is an oil painting app. The app includes five different brushes each of which you can load up with different amounts of paint. The app features an impressive 1,000 layers of undo/redo support. The app can send photos to Flickr and directly to your photos app. There is a Mac and Windows app available to do some of the larger exports. The app can be used to create some pretty fantastic looking paintings. Inspire Pro is in a class on its own and worth a look.

For those who...

  • It’s for artists who need a canvas with them wherever they go.

Not for those who...

  • Additional brush sets are available via in-app purchase. So if you’re looking for some patterns, complex shapes, and charcoal brushes to work with, you’re going to have to spend some money.

Why we love it

Whether you dabble in painting or are a full-fledged artist, Inspire will truly inspire. Even though it’s loaded with features, its customizable interface allows you to simply jump right in and start creating without having to go through a massive tutorial.

App Store Description

Available exclusively on the App Store, meticulously designed to be beautifully powerful, and painstakingly engineered for iPad — Inspire Pro delivers an incredibly fast and realistic painting, drawing, and sketching experience that you can take with you wherever you go and use whenever inspiration strikes.

Our proprietary painting engine Sorcery™ takes full advantage of the GPU to render brush strokes with brilliant 64-bit color, laser-sharp sub-pixel precision, and insanely fast speed. While the strokes of a wet oil paint brush look beautiful on their own, the breathtaking blending effects of a dry brush will absolutely stun you. Graze the canvas with just a bit of pressure to add a subtle blur to your artwork or use stronger pressure to actually mix existing colors on the canvas together to create new ones.

Whether you are a budding artist, seasoned professional, or somewhere in-between, you will enjoy the simplicity and power of the most intuitive and compelling illustration app for iPad, Inspire Pro.
