Feature List

Like any good idea, Concepts is a work-in-progress. We started with Concepts on iOS, and we’re now working on bringing the much-loved experience to Windows, Android and ChromeOS. Our goal is to bring these platforms to the same level with regular releases, and for the time being some differences exist between the two versions. Here’s where we are so far:

1 Feature is available for purchase.
2 Concepts for iOS continues to evolve at a rapid pace. We're currently working on iCloud Sync and improved Keyboard support.
4 The file format used on iOS is not compatible with the Windows/Android file format. You can share drawings across Windows, Android and Chrome OS. Once the two formats catch up, you will be able to share drawings across all platforms.
5 Dark Mode is available fully on Windows, and Canvas Only on Android / Chrome OS.
6 Cloud Syncing refers to drawing-level, automatic syncing between multiple devices. Concepts for iOS will soon support iCloud Sync. Concepts for Windows can be configured to use installed cloud syncing solutions.
7 Cross-platform Subscriptions unlock everything and require a free Concepts account. Available now on iOS, Windows and Android.
