The Procreate tool we've all been waiting for is coming

Thanks to its cutting-edge tools and easy-to-use layout, Procreate has won over a legion of dedicated users (if you're one of them and need some brushes, then check out our list of the best Procreate brushes). Nothing's perfect though, and if there's one thing that's caused digital artists a bit of a headache when it comes to using the multi-award winning iPad app, it's the lack of a Text tool. Judging by a recent tweet from the official Procreate account though, all this looks set to change.

This morning Procreate whipped Twitter up into a frenzy with a simple status and a GIF of a blinking text cursor. There's no mention of a launch date, no accompanying link to a blog post telling users what to expect, and yet artists knew it was time to get  excited.
