Take Your Work to Extremes

The Concepts app allows you to really take your creative endeavors to the extremes given you even more possibilities than a paper and pen can. The app believes it's all in the details and with that it means you can control just about every aspect of the creative process. You will be able to use real-scale paper size guides, sharp zoom, layout guides, a variety of pens and brushes, graph paper, and so much more. If you're working with straight lines you can use the Precision Mode which makes it possible to create the perfect angles, arcs, lines, ellipses, and rectangles. Where you might traditionally use a ruler if you were working on paper this mode will step in and help.
