Adobe Creative Cloud and Apps Available for Public Beta Testing

Last month, Adobe launched their Creative Cloud intelligent drop-box service along with 6 pro-targeted tablet apps. Creative Cloud (CC) is now available for public beta. The tablet apps have been updated to support Android tablets based on the Honeycomb 3.1 operating system.

The latest apps include "Photoshop Touch," a smaller version of Photoshop software; "Ideas," a tool for vector drawings; "Proto," a tool for creating web wireframe; "Collage," a mood-boards creating tool; "Kuler," a tablet version of the Internet-based palette-inspiration tool and "Debut," a presentation as well as mark up elements assembling tool.

At present, the cost is $9.99 per app, considered the "introductory price." However, the company has not shared any other details regarding recurrent costs, or when the introductory price will expire.

In early 2012, iOS versions of these apps will be launched. The apps form an ecosystem when used with Creative Cloud, as reported by CNET.

In their present form, the apps have a few issues which are annoying and require adjustments by Adobe.
