New Kuler iPhone app and website redesign

Earlier this month, at Adobe MAX, we showed you a preview of Kuler for the iPhone and the new Kuler website. Today, we’re launching the new Kuler site and making the app available on the App Store.


The new Kuler iPhone app allows you to capture inspiring color themes anytime, using the iPhone camera. You can then sync those color themes to the Kuler website, which allows you to create and edit color themes and browse thousands of themes created by other users.

For Creative Cloud users, all the themes you create with Kuler will be accessible in Adobe Illustrator CC and Ideas. In addition, the color themes that Creative Cloud automatically generates for your assets can be opened quickly and easily in Kuler for editing.

If you have any feedback or questions, we want to hear from you. Please join the conversation on the Kuler forum.

Refocusing our Touch App Development

Over the past year, we’ve been exploring how the creative process can be augmented and enhanced on touch devices. While some of our efforts have been successful, others have been less so. Therefore, starting today, we will no longer be updating Adobe Debut, Adobe Collage, Adobe Proto, or the Android versions of Adobe Ideas and Adobe Kuler.

If you have these apps installed on your iPad or Android tablet you can continue using them, but we will not be providing bug fixes or updates. We will continue to provide support in our forums, so if you have questions you can reach us there or contact Adobe Customer Care.

We will keep supporting and developing our other Adobe Touch Apps and exploring other ways to enhance creative workflows on tablets.


UPDATE – 1/3/13 - Sorry everyone — all comments were unintentionally posting to a spam folder. Thanks for all the feedback. We’re going through and making sure all the comments get posted and will respond as soon as possible.


UPDATE – 1/4/13 - We recognize that many of you are unhappy about our recent decision to stop supporting some of the Adobe Touch Apps. We apologize for any inconvenience and frustration caused by this decision. We’re listening, have considered the issues, and really do appreciate all of your feedback.

As a company, we strive to make great products and truly value customer input along the way. We’ve learned a lot in the process of releasing these apps and, frankly, we believe we can do better. But, the only way to do this is to focus. So, we made the difficult decision to stop supporting some apps in order to create better ones. We have in no way stopped our investment in mobile and tablets. How-to support for the discontinued apps will continue to be available through our forums. And, in addition to supporting the remaining apps, we’re actively working on new and better products to help the creative process – so we hope you’ll stay tuned for future announcements.

Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts.
