"I use Concepts more than any other tool. I absolutely love it. The natural, fluid, vector-based workflow is so easy to use, but incredibly powerful. The technology never gets in the way of creativity. The fast and clean user experience makes it a joy to use.” - Yarrow Cheney, film director

"The Concepts app has not changed what I do, just transformed how I do it. It offers me the power, flexibility and adaptability of technology with all the sensitivity and immediacy of traditional hand drawing. In short, it is an app that I now cannot imagine being without, and the only time I’ve experienced something that betters pen and paper.” - Ewen Miller, Calderpeel Architects

“I use it just for everything. Drawing, making notes, brainstorming, PDF markup, wireframing, design — EVERYTHING. And it delivers.” - natanaeldekross

Everything I have been waiting for

I have MANY apps for drawing, diagramming, note taking, and they all lack a feature or two which means shuffling from one to the next. This is the first app I have come across which neatly combines my entire feature wish list along with an infinite canvas!

Amazing just a few small things

I love the app! But there are just some things that really annoy me. Tabs don’t automatically close and pop ups need you to swipe them away. In almost every other app, tapping out a window will close it automatically, but not this one. It’s the same with the pop ups. You only need two seconds to read it but it doesn’t go automatically go away. It sounds like a small thing but it’s really annoying when things just get in your way rather than recede in the way they should. Please reconsider this. It would be far more intuitive if pop ups went away automatically (like a notification or pop up on a phone) and tabs closed once you resume drawing. Thanks.

Simply the best.

This has become my go to app, for note taking, planning, sketching, drawing, inking... worth every penny and always improving!
