Following the announcement back in April that the Text tool was finally coming to Procreate, Procreate Pocket, the drawing app for the iPhone, has also had a makeover. And spoiler alert: it's a good one.

Procreate Pocket 3.0 now comes with that all-important Text tool, allowing you to add type to your creations, and while this is big enough news by itself, that's not all. Other highlights in this update include the QuickShape tool, which means you can draw a rough shape, a wonky triangle, say, and then have it snap to create smooth lines and a flawless shape. We reckon this update could be what Procreate Pocket needs to propel itself onto our list of the best iPhone apps.
