Photoshop CS5 apps for iPad now available

I’m happy to report that the three recently announced Photoshop companion apps are now available for download:

Please note that to use them together with Photoshop, you’ll need to apply the Photoshop 12.0.4 update. We encourage developers to make their own Photoshop-savvy apps by downloading the Photoshop Touch SDK and optionally ActionScript source code.

    I like the Nav app. I kept expecting clicking the color wells would bring up a color picker though.

    John,

    I have downloaded all the new Ipad2 apps on my Ipad2. WOW, please tell the developers I love them.

    Thanks Adobe,

    Ken from KY

    Any chance of the Nav app being made universal? I know the screen’s a lot smaller, but I still think I’d get a lot of use out of this if it was on the iPhone 4.

    So far, Nav is pretty good. The most useful of the three. But, as the “buttons” are so large on the iPad, I’d prefer to see, or have the option for, a bigger array. Five by five would be much better. And perhaps, more differentiation between them would be good, say, with using color.

    Are these apps going to be released for the Android market? With all the Android 3 tablets being released right now, I would think I’m not the only one feeling left out. :(

      We can’t comment of future releases, but Android is supported by the Touch SDK. I’d expect to see apps from the community that support Android and RIM Playbook. http://phtshp.us/jBAuGW

    I have downloaded Eazel.

    Tell the developers that they have my full respect, because committing this half-baked POS to the App Store takes some serious guts.

    The convoluted tool selection manages to get in the way of the painting workflow –unless you have the hand coordination of a jazz pianist. But I can excuse it as an “UI experiment” to be refined in a future version.

    No storing of the images I’ve worked on?

    Not being able to work a previous image on a later day?

    Just one natural media brush (and a crappy one at that)?

    No layers? (I guess we are expected to cough up for them as an in-app purchase on a later update, a la Adobe Ideas).

    No color picker?

    And did I mentioned the UI sucks?

    Deke McClelland: “Between you and me, this five-finger thing is for the birds. It looks fine for the demo, but gets old really fast when you are using the app” (on his Lynda.com Eazel video).

    Glad I’m not the only one…

    Oh, and how I’m supposed to work on multiple images in Eazel when I’m on the road with no PS to sync large versions to?

    Rather than complain on the first generation of tools, I encourage to post constructive criticism on: http://phtshp.us/PSFeedback

    I use Photoshop all day long at work and Lightroom all night long for my second job and can’t for the life of me see how these apps help my productivity. They are at first glance kinda cool apps, but after trying them for a couple of days, do not do anything to enhance or speed workflow. In fact they slow you down. They are simply not needed and do not solve any problems or provide a solution. It is far faster to stay in one environment that does everything than sync two work spaces together.
