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:

This is my favorite drawing app. The infinite canvas is ideal for situations where you don't know exactly how much space you'll need, but it wouldn't make sense to split it on to multiple pages (e.g. a mind map). I use it quite a lot for playing table top role playing games. Recent improvement of being able to save to internal storage is huge for me. Using an app called OneSync, I am able to sync the folder on my Android to OneDrive so everything is available on Windows also.

The art is amazing. ONE of the very few free or reasonably priced art apps. BUT.. There is one main issue. Where is the smudge tool or a tool similar. I love smudging my art.. So learning to have to deal without it is a struggle and a half along with the blur tool. If you can place these in I just need them direly. Things I love about this app : Functionality, it's easy to get adjusted to Infinite landscape Reasonable prices + Free Smooth connection, draws where placed Saves automatically

Hi Erin, it's great to hear you are enjoying Concepts. To set expectation, a smudge or blur tool is unlikely in Concepts as it is a vector based app. Performance would be unacceptably slow for most users. Hopefully, the other features we have make it worth your while to continue to use Concepts.

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.
