About this app

Think, plan & create – Concepts is a flexible vector-based creative workspace/sketchpad where you can take your ideas from concept to reality.

Concepts reimagines the ideation stage – offering a safe and dynamic workspace to explore your ideas, organize your thoughts, experiment with and iterate designs before sharing them with friends, clients and other apps.

With our infinite canvas, you can:
• sketch out plans and whiteboard ideas
• make notes, doodles, and mindmaps

Concepts is vector-based, making every stroke editable and scalable. With our Nudge, Slice and Select tools, you can easily change any element of your sketch without redrawing it. Concepts is optimized for the latest pen-enabled devices and Chrome OS™, making it fast, smooth and responsive.

With Concepts, you can:
• draw with precision using shape guides, live snap and measurement for clean and accurate sketches
• personalize your canvas, tools, gestures, everything
• duplicate your work for easy iterations in the gallery and on canvas

As someone extremely picky about all of my apps, this one has been one of the best I have paid for. Searching for a combination note-taking/artboard application to use for mind mapping, I came across Concepts. It is feature-rich with practical tools, user-friendly and intuitive. If you have latency issues, just check your apps settings. I have been using it for about a month and have had none. A $25 lifetime subscription and users give 1 ⭐ 🤯. Understand what the app is for first.

I've only used the app for 30 minutes or so and I can already say that it has some quality of life features that I wish other apps had. I feel like it perfectly accomplishes what I've been wanting! I can create clean enough sketches that I feel like I can have fun designing things. However it's not too technical that it becomes difficult to accomplish on a phone! Being able to set smoothing to 100% for perfectly straight lines and canvas rotation lock is awesome. Also great backgrounds!

The app is alright. I initially really liked it, but for its price it's not everything I hoped. There is no fill tool, which is very unfortunate. It also lost my subscription (one time purchase) with the new update. I'm signed into a personal and a work google account. Even though I was signed into the correct account in the concepts app, it wants me to re-buy for the other google account with no in app way to switch it back.

Hi Nathan, sorry you hit an issue with your subscription. Please contact our support team and we will help get that fixed. It's a long standing bug with google play when you use a device with multiple google accounts. In Concepts, go to the Help page, tap Ask Us Anything and send a message, thanks!
