Following much clamor on the part of Android users — and keeping its promise — Adobe has launched four Creative Cloud apps on the Google Play store.
Whether on iOS or Android, these apps are part of Adobe’s mobile strategy to offer discrete functions rather than a single all encompassing Photoshop-type app. This keeps operations focused and simple, tailored to people who need to zero in on a particular function.
Mix combines images, changes colors and otherwise enhances photos, letting you share composites with friends through social networks and send photos to the desktop Photoshop CC for further work.
Shape CC lets you capture and convert images into vector graphics for use in Adobe Illustrator CC or Adobe Photoshop CC.
You can use Brush CC to convert photos or graphics into unique brushes for use in Adobe Photoshop CC or Illustrator CC. Color CC lets you sample colors in a scene to create themes for use in Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop.
In addition, Adobe is releasing Hue CC to its stable of iOS apps, letting you create custom filters and looks for Adobe’s video apps, Premiere Pro, Premiere Clip and After Effects CC.
Preview CC, also available now, lets you preview your designs on multiple iOS devices.
All the apps are free and available to anyone, whether or not they are members of the Creative Cloud subscription service.
