TopHatch, Concepts App Developer, is Finally bringing their app to Android

I have used Concepts on iOS for years, and I covered the 1.0 release on this blog for the Windows version, and finally, I’m happy to see that there is an Android version coming very soon.

Pseudo announced on stage at the MadeByGoogle event, and a tweet accompanying the news on the 9th as well with a sign up form. TopHatch officially sent confirmation emails out to their email followers this afternoon US time. 

Concepts on Android would be a wonderful addition to a somewhat lacking amount of high-quality drawing apps. 
There are a few decent apps, like Autodesk Sketchbook, Adobe Illustrator draw, and Sketch to name a few, however, there are few that have the audience and the feature set the Concepts has. You can see on the Windows version alone, what TopHatch can bring to porting their apps to other platforms, which gives me hope as to the quality and features that should be available in a 1.0 Release.
Further to a previous post, I made on the quality of Chrome OS and the Pixel Slate, I believe Chrome OS is the definite future of Google’s Mobile productivity machine. 
Having a compelling drawing app on the platform I would hope to entice other users from iOS and Windows slates to consider using Chrome OS and  all the abilities it possesses, from Linux console use, right through to more advanced Android apps.

As the ecosystem grows, companies like TopHat are showing that the platform is still a product and capable platform to develop on and bring higher quality apps too. Serif bringing their apps (Affinity Photo & Designer) to iOS is a key example of that companies recognition of the power of portable computing. If they added their apps to Android for use on Tablets and Chrome OS, then this would definitely help open up more desktop based developers to bring high-quality ports to mobile OS’s (hopefully ChromeOS/Android, but more than likely iOS first, then Android).

I have signed up for a beta test, so as soon as I can get my hands on this I will give it a full breakdown and test of what the features are like in a pre 1.0 version.
