About Adobe Ideas You can pick up the free app in the iTunes Store and use it to create vector illustrations on the go on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch. Because Ideas is vector based, any artwork created will scale, so unlike other drawing applications, Ideas is great for taking real life projects like t-shirt designs from start to finish.

With an Adobe Creative Cloud membership, you can easily sync your Ideas projects and open them for refinement in Illustrator CC.

Adobe Ideas provides a virtual canvas with up to 10 drawing layers, support for the Pogo Connect pressure-sensitive stylus, a photo layer for each sketch, and multiple drawing tools that you can customize and save. Easily move, rotate, and scale individual layers for precise positioning, and zoom in and out without pixilation. You can refine your sketch with the eraser tool, and you get 50 undo/redo actions so that you can edit in a snap. You can also duplicate, merge, and flip layers horizontally and vertically with a simple tap on the screen. Check out the full list of Adobe Ideas features here.
