Make quick sketches, beautiful illustrations, and precise drawings with ease and style.

Concepts is optimized for the iPad Pro with Apple Pencil, and works brilliantly on iPad and iPhone so your sketchbook is always with you. With our unique approach to precision sketching, amazing Architects, Illustrators, Professional Designers and Makers like you have designed hospitals and boats, landscapes, illustrations and game art, outlined major film storyboards, even crafted award-winning quilts, greeting cards, furniture, robots and drones.

Full Specifications

What's new in version 4.6.1

We're so happy you're happy with the new Hard & Soft Pencils, the Soft Eraser, Gallery Sorting, and Apple Pencil updates in 4.6. In this version - 4.6.1 - we've fixed a number of bugs and improved stability.

Generally speaking though, that makes for a pretty unexciting update status. So here are a few more things:

- Updated the Wacom, Adonit, and Pencil by FiftyThree SDKs with better support for the iPad Pro.

- Added a preference to disable canvas rotation.

- Objects you create and use are now inserted at their original scale (independent of zoom).

Since you've read this far, here's a secret: We're working on something big, and it's so big, you might call it Concepts 5.0. It'll be landing sometime this Fall, and if you're paying attention on Instagram and Medium (@ConceptsApp) you might see something more.

As always, we love your feedback and five-star reviews. Thanks and keep 'em coming!

The Concepts Team @ TopHatch
