Adobe has announced the upcoming release of six new apps designed for tablets, along with a new cloud sharing platform. The new apps go by the name of Adobe Touch Apps, and are aimed at creative tablet users who don’t have the need for an expensive creative suite. The new apps will sell for $9.99 each on the Android Market, and there isn’t a price tag yet nor even a proper announcement for the iOS versions.
The head of the new bunch is Adobe Photoshop Touch, which is a downgraded Photoshop version for tablets that includes some unique tablet optimized features. The rest of the new apps are:
- Adobe Debut – A presentation app for Adobe-created designs.
- Adobe Proto – An interactive wireframing and a prototype app.
- Adobe Collage – A creative app for combining images, drawing and text to whole concepts.
- Adobe Kuler – A color theme creator and explorer.
- Adobe Ideas – A vector drawing app.
Aside from Adobe Ideas, which has been available in the iOS AppStore for quite a while, all of these new apps will be available soon for Android, with no release date for iOS in sight. An interesting decision which might have something do with Apple’s attitude toward Flash.
Aside from the new apps, Adobe has also announced a new sharing platform by the name of Adobe Creative Cloud, which will allow users to share their creations across tablets and desktops.
What do you think of Adobe’s decision to go with Android? Is it just a coincidence or did Adobe deliberately “forget” that the world’s most popular tablet is the iPad?
