Adobe has announced a new collection of mobile applications that will allow users to do graphical work on tablet devices. In addition, the company is also launching a new Web service to sync and share content between devices, called “Adobe Creative Cloud”.
Unlike Adobe Creative Suite, which is mostly intended for a professional audience, the Adobe Touch suite is designed to be more accessible to mainstream users. The six applications include a photo editor, a collage tool, a vector drawing program, a social color palette manager, software for designing wireframes and a Creative Suite file presenter.
While Adobe’s website only shows the Android application built for Honeycomb and running on the Motorola Xoom, the software is available on iOS devices as well. The Android version of Photoshop Touch will be released next month and retail for $9.99 at launch, though Adobe hasn’t announced a price for Apple products yet and will announce a release date for the iOS version early next year.
Adobe’s Creative Cloud will be a hosted storage, synchronization and sharing service for users of Adobe Touch applications or Adobe Creative Suite. Initially offering users 20GB of storage capacity in the cloud, the program will feature integration with Adobe’s digital publishing technologies and will allow users to easily move their work between desktops and mobile devices. The company hasn’t announced pricing for the service as of yet, but promised more details will come next month.
