Adobe releases a slew of Android apps for Creative Cloud subscribers



Adobe has launched a slew of new Android apps today. In the past they have supported iOS with great apps like Photoshop, Lightroom, and more, but Android has taken a back seat. Now Creative Cloud members can use Photoshop Mix, Brush CC, Shape CC, and Color CC on Android.

It took so long for these apps to come to Android because Adobe had to port over the Creative SDK. They also noted that it’s simply harder to develop for Android based on the wide array of devices. But they’re here now, so none of that matters. What do the apps actually do?

  • Photoshop Mix is basically a slimmed down version of Photoshop for mobile devices.
  • Brush CC allows you to create brushes for Photoshop and Illustrator.
  • Shape CC lets you create vector drawings from the photos stored on your phone.
  • Color CC is a color picker app that allows you to get colors from photos and sync them back to the Creative Cloud.

Ever since I flipped open my first phone I've been obsessed with the devices. I've dabbled in other platforms, but Android is where I feel most at home.

  1. I just installed mix on my Note 4 and promptly uninstalled it. What a buggy, slow, garbage app! It’s a shame that they retired Photoshop Touch for this crap.

  2. and according to Adobe… none of them are tablet compatible yet. SMH.

  3. … they expect Photoshop mix to replace Photoshop touch?
    I already found 2 significant failures.

    you can’t open images with Photoshop mix like you can in Photoshop touch.
    instead you have to import images from within Photoshop mix, using Photoshop mix’s own file browser.
    why can’t I just use my own file manager?

    there’s no numerical cropping.
    for wallpapers i need not only specific aspect ratios(including non-standard ones like 9:8 for my phone) but also exact resolutions so wallpapers can be set without any crappy resizing from the OS.

    and that’s from about 10 seconds of use(not counting the time I had to spend logging in, which is now mandatory)

  4. What’s going on with phandroid? “Continue reading…” is being displayed at the bottom of the articles, and this one just ends abruptly. Is there a missing page 2? You don’t even mention what the monthly price is.

    Is anyone there paying attention?
