I started using this app 1 day before the release of version 5. I made this sprawling and complex drawing of a customer journey map to map out the design of a brand new feature we’re working on for our app. I found the version 4 UI highly functional but felt it was really complicated and busy. I was only using the free version, since that was fulfilling my needs.

That all changed with version 5. Version 5 introduces an all-new UI (and payment structure) which massively simplifies the controls while drawing, and lets you hide and show different panels if they’re in the way (the Layers button for example). I’m still confused about how the color palates work, so I’m using the “Recent” color palate and that’s doing the job. This tool feels indispensable to me now. That infinite canvas is amazing, and the sketch tools and features feel like a super expensive piece of drawing software at a fraction of the price.

My favorite feature, and why it’s awesome for drawing journey maps and wireframes for designing apps, is Concepts’ infinitely-sized canvas. It’s like the biggest whiteboard ever and you can just keep going and going. Making super long journey map type of work is nearly impossible on fixed page size drawing apps, so this is truly revolutionary for me.

The Best App for Apple Pencil Optimization I've Used.

This is a great app, with the purchased Pro Pack I found it to be very useful. The quality of the pencil shading and line making is first class. The app also has an easy to follow, and creativity based user interface, with a good mix of Photoshop like settings, and artist based ones too. I really enjoy drawing technical diagrams, and maps and this app was perfectly suited for it. I don't know what a name for it is, but a great tool is the auto line straightener. The only reason I've given this a 4 star rating is personal, I would really like to see a tool for drawing parallels/perpendiculars. I would also like more zoom capability, and photo import improvements. This app is consistently updated which is really nice, and each app update typically brings more and more functionality. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a more "precision" based artists suite, however it is still a good option for casual usage. Cheers to the developers, and I can't wait to see what they have in the pipes.
