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
• draw storyboards, product sketches and designs

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.

Talented creators at Disney, Playstation, Philips, HP, Apple, Google, Unity and Illumination Entertainment use Concepts to develop and realize extraordinary ideas. Join us!

• a tool wheel or bar you can customize with your favorite tools and presets
• an infinite layering system with automatic sorting & adjustable opacity
• HSL, RGB and COPIC color wheels to help you choose colors that look great together
• flexible vector-based sketching – move and adjust what you’ve drawn anytime by tool, color, size, smoothing and scale

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

Really like the app. I use it both on my phone and computer with graphics tablet. It's a great combination of being both simple and easy to use, but also having enough features to produce quality content. I do find that sometimes when I open it the app has 'forgotten' that I have access to the pro features which is really frustrating. Also would be good to access files between my phone/laptop Would be great to combine shape guides for more complex precision drawing.

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.

Free version is not vector. You can only draw freestyle. There's no line, circle, rectangle, or other shapes to use. If it had shapes and the ability to manipulate it, I would have at least bought the vector pdf export version for $5.00. $29.99 is too much money, especially since a reviewer said it's possible to loose your one time payment. I hate knowing I could loose my lifetime payment and nothing can be done about it. I will not recommend this product to anyone!

Hi, sorry our pricing does not work for you. I'd note that the issue with someone losing a lifetime payment was an issue that was resolved. Our support team is there to help if anyone hits an issue with purchases.
