Inspire Pro is Free for a Limited Time

Inspire Pro

Inspire Pro is free for a limited time as it celebrates 1 million downloads. It’s a cool iPad app that lets you paint on a virtual canvas. It’s capable of creating awesome art in the right hands.

We played around with it a bit. Our work looks nothing like the pictures, but that’s our fault for not taking some art classes in high school.

Here’s some info:

What’s New in Version 2.3

Canvas Playback Video Recording
● Brush strokes are now automatically recorded as you paint without any loss of speed
● You can play the video of your artwork being created stroke-by-stroke directly in the gallery with a new Play button
● A Canvas Playback video can be exported to your Photos, Email or iTunes Documents
● Exported videos are always 1080p, regardless of the chosen canvas size or orientation
● A 3 second intro is added to the beginning of an exported video so that you can preview the final artwork before watching it unfold in the video
● Recorded videos do take up more space, so if you’re low, you can always turn off Canvas Playback from the New Canvas menu

Improved New Canvas Menu
