What about Android?

An update on mobile support.

Our vision for our mobile apps is to push the boundaries of where and how you can create. Whether you’re capturing inspiration on the go, sketching your ideas on the fly or compositing photos, these mobile apps are fundamentally connected by your Creative Profile and help make your graphics, colors, brushes available to you as you move from app to app and from your phone to desktop.

While we initially launched these apps on iOS, we didn’t forget you Android. We’re working hard to develop Android phone support for some of our most popular apps. But we want to do it right, in a way that complements the strengths of the Android user experience and design. While we can’t offer specific release dates, you should expect to see the first of these apps starting in Summer 2015.

We’re also eagerly developing an Android version of the Creative SDK, which powers both Adobe and third-party apps. This SDK will allow the creation of more Android apps that connect you to your Creative Profile wherever you are.

As of now, there are Android phone apps available for the creative social network Behance, Behance Creative Portfolio, Creative Cloud file management, and Lightroom.

Design, Development & the Elections?

The run up to the U.S. Presidential Elections on November 6 is causing quite the conversation, and whichever candidate you’re behind (or passionately not behind), there are a couple of outlets to channel your energy.

Smash Vote

Pit your favorite (or least favorite) politicos against one another in this arcade-style action fighting game. Currently on Android (coming soon to iOS) this new app by Mighty Bits gives you a chance to debate the old-fashioned way – much like Tuesday night’s Town Hall debate. Curious about the making of the app? Check out our Gaming team’s post, “From Rock the Vote to Smash Vote!

Election Protection


For those who talk about leaving the country when their candidate of choice loses, JetBlue will be there to make that a reality for a lucky winner of its new campaign, Election Protection, as covered by Design Envy. Some great creative design and web development work went into the making that’s worth a peek.
