Adobe releases six applications for Android

Popular makers of Photoshop Adobe has announced a range of touch apps designed for Android run tablet devices, which are all based around their Adobe Creative Suite of products.

Adobe announced the Google mobile OS applications at their own MAX conference in October this year, where they are all geared up to be used either by a finger or stylus - on Android ‘Honeycomb’ 3.1 or higher.

These items of software are Adobe Photoshop Touch for image editing; Adobe Collage for moodboards; Adobe Debut for presenting and reviewing creative work; Adobe Ideas for sketching; Adobe Kuler for exploring colour themes; and Adobe Proto for website and mobile app prototyping.

They are all designed to be run on devices that have 8.9-inch screens or higher, with a resolution of 1280x800.

Adobe touch apps are for creative professionals and are now available on the Android Market in most areas in English, at an introductory price of $9.99 whilst being integrated with creative file viewing, sharing and transfer features of the Adobe creative cloud.

The company is also aimed for versions of these applications to be made available for Apple iOS devices, in early 2012.
