Adobe Mobile Apps Demonstrate That Less Really Is More

Adobe Color CC, Shape CC, Brush CC and Hue CC were milestones in our evolution of capture apps—designed to quickly perform a single task, they were created to enable creativity and then get out of the way.

Starting today, we will no longer update Color CC, Shape CC and Brush CC on iOS or Android. We will also stop development for Adobe Hue CC on iPad and iPhone. Instead we have consolidated the four apps into a single, comprehensive mobile app called Adobe Capture CC.

Adobe Capture CC is available as a free download in iTunes and Google Play and is compatible on iPhone, iPad and Android phones.

Users can now create color themes, custom brushes, vector graphics and unique Looks from a single photo, in a simple workflow and within the same app. And because Capture CC is powered by CreativeSync, creative professionals can sync and save the assets they create to their Creative Cloud Libraries and use them in other Adobe desktop and mobile apps.

We’ve also updated our drawing apps; Adobe Illustrator Draw and Adobe Photoshop Sketch with the same spirit in mind. Both apps incorporate features previously unique to Adobe Illustrator Line—such as support for drawing in two-point perspective, and graph grids for better drawing accuracy—and have also been updated with new features like access to Adobe Stock and new watercolor brushes for Sketch.

Moving forward, all innovation and new features for our drawing apps will be delivered in Draw and Sketch. Users who created and saved artwork in Line can access those assets when they log into Sketch. No further development will be made to Line as it will be removed from the app store for sale following this release.

Creative Cloud members who have already downloaded Adobe Illustrator Line, Color CC, Shape CC, Brush CC and Hue CC will continue to have access to these apps until iOS and Android ship updates. At which time, service may be discontinued. For more information and support, please visit our forums pages for Line, Color, Shape Brush and Hue.

To take advantage of the latest, most innovative features in Adobe’s drawing and capture apps download them from the app stores today.
