On behalf of the Photoshop.com Mobile team I’m pleased to share that we’ve released Photoshop.com Mobile for Android.
It’s an exciting time to be a mobile application developer and even more exciting to release Adobe’s first direct-to-consumer Android application.
We’re very proud of our Windows Mobile and iPhone releases, but Android has allowed us room to add some great new features. Android can handle multi and background processing, so our Android app can simultaneously upload your photos while browsing or editing images. The app offers many of the same editing and sharing features available in Photoshop.com Mobile for iPhone. In addition Android gives us direct access to your photos, allowing us to provide a richer, more integrated browsing and editing experience.
Now is the time to release an app for Android. Lately there’s been an
explosion in the number of Android devices hitting the market from HTC,
Motorola, Samsung, and Sony Ericsson, to name a few. Android has really matured and now offers a dynamic and accessible range of features to developers. Throw in an excellent marketplace, top notch development tools, with an open source foundation, and if developers aren’t excited now, they will be soon.
We’ve only just begun. We’re already working on adding more editing
features, improving performance, and supporting the latest Android OS enhancements. I can’t wait to hear what you think about it.
