New Update for Photoshop Touch Available! Pressure-Sensitive Stylus Support, 7-Inch Device Support, and More!
I’m very pleased to announce that a new update to Photoshop Touch is now available! Photoshop Touch 1.4 can be downloaded from the iTunes App Store, Google Play, and Amazon Appstore. In this update, we have some great new features and improvements:
Pressure-sensitive stylus support for iPad
We added support for three of the most popular pressure-sensitive styli in this version of Photoshop Touch: the Pogo Connect*, Jot Touch and JaJa Stylus. Using the special capabilities of these devices, users can draw, paint and retouch their work in Photoshop Touch with a more natural look and feel. At this time, these styli support iOS only. We’ve also improved our brushing engine to make smoother strokes with or without a special stylus.
Expanded device support
Photoshop Touch 1.4 is now optimized to work on smaller devices, including the iPad mini, Google Nexus 7, and Amazon Kindle Fire 7-inch and 8.9-inch devices. In fact, Photoshop Touch 1.4 will work on any Android 3.1 or later device with at least a 7-inch screen and a resolution of 1024×600.
We recently began selling Photoshop Touch through the Amazon Appstore. Please note that a purchase in one store cannot be transferred to another store. Unfortunately there is no way for Adobe to allow this, and we encourage users to make their purchase in the most applicable app store for the devices they own.
