Concepts 2021.3 for Windows - Subscription Sync + Waterful Brushes

March 2021 Update

Concepts 2021.3 for Windows adds subscription sync between Windows + iOS platforms and wet Waterful brushes by artist Matthew Baldwin.

Windows + iOS Subscription Sync

One of our biggest goals this year is to create a cross platform sketching experience, where one subscription will enable you to work seamlessly across iOS, Windows and Android platforms. Our Concepts 2021.3 for Windows release is a big step in that direction, and your support has been invaluable.

If you have a subscription on iOS or Windows, you can now use the same subscription for both platforms! Create a free Concepts account and sign in on both to use your subscription across Windows and iOS. Android support is coming in the next few months.

To sync your subscription:

1. Open Concepts on both platforms and tap the profile icon in the status bar.

2. Tap the Accounts tab.

3. Enter your email address or Sign In with Google. It needs to be the same account. Sign In with Apple is coming soon.

4. Your subscription will automatically sync across platforms.

Note: One-time purchases will continue to be platform specific.

If you have any questions about syncing, please contact us. Tap Help > Ask Us Anything in app and we'll be happy to help.

The Waterful Brush Library

Artist Matthew Baldwin's delightful, splashy Waterful brushes are now available in-app. Add wet textures and spatter to your sketches with this 36 brush set - just tap your active tool to head to the Brush Market. Learn more about Matthew Baldwin here.

A note for artists looking for the iOS watercolor brush - this is not the same as the Waterful brush library. That said, the Waterful brushes are a fantastic set with a ton of wet variety, we hope you love them.


In addition, we're making a ton of progress for our Windows version under the hood which will allow us to bring you all the great features of iOS and beyond. We are now working on Precision tools, we'll keep you posted on progress over the next few months!

We love to hear from you. Please send us your feedback via Ask Us Anything in the Help menu in-app, and leave us a five star review so we can continue bringing you these updates. Your support makes a difference, thank you!
