Adobe Touch Android apps now available

Adobe has released its Android Photoshop apps into the Android Market on Tuesday letting tablet users edit images and brainstorm ideas.

“We’re very excited to announce that the Adobe Touch Apps are now available worldwide from the Android Marketplace! The Adobe Touch Apps, first debuted at Adobe MAX last month, are a family of six intuitive touch-screen applications, inspired by Adobe Creative Suite software, to bring professional-level creativity to tablet users. Capture ideas wherever creativity strikes – even sync and store them to the Adobe Creative Cloud.”

The six new apps are: Photoshop Touch, Adobe Collage, Adobe Debut, Adobe Ideas, Adobe Kuler, and Adobe Proto.

Photoshop Touch is a imaging editing app akin to Adobe’s main desktop software Photoshop allowing you to manage and manipulate your images on the go.

Adobe Collage is for mood board fans and allows you to “capture ideas and concepts by combining images, drawings, and text into conceptual mood boards.

Adobe Debut is basically a presenting tool for photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator files, while Adobe Ideas is a virtual drawing board app for getting your ideas on screen.

Web designer will most likely go giddy over Kuler that lets you mess around with colour palletes and themes, while Proto is all about wireframe creation for web designers.

Files created via Adobe Touch Apps can also be shared, viewed across devices or transferred into Adobe Creative Suite software for further refinement via the Adobe Creative Cloud allowing creative types to work on the train on the way home or from the sofa in the evening.

The apps all cost $9.99, and £6.99 in the UK. They are only available for Android tablets running Android 3.1 or higher with a minimum 8.9-inch screen size and resolution of 1280 x 800.

Currently, Adobe Ideas is already available for iOS on the Apple App Store. Adobe says the apps will be coming to the iPad in early 2012.
