In a blog post entitled, What About Android?, Adobe sought to reassure what is likely a restless creative community that watches in dismay as high-profile apps are released one after the other for the iPhone and iPad.

The inevitable question — what about us? — no doubt has long echoed through the corridors of  Adobe’s San Jose and San Francisco HQs.

Today, the company flat out told its Android constituency to relax. “…we didn’t forget you Android,” said the post by Will Eisley, principal product manager. “We’re working hard to develop Android phone support for some of our most popular apps. But we want to do it right, in a way that complements the strengths of the Android user experience and design.”

Eisley told the Android faithful that they should keep an eye peeled for new products appearing this summer though naturally, there were no specific dates cited.

The well is not entirely dry for the platform, of course. Android phone apps are available for Behance and Behance Creative Portfolio, Creative Cloud, Photoshop, Photoshop Touch, Photoshop Express and Lightroom.

But more in the way of targeted creative apps like those recently released for iOS, like Adobe Comp CC and Slate and Voice and Mix and others are much desired, especially for tablets.
