Discover New Creative Cloud Connected Apps, Powered by the Creative SDK

Mobile has added new, powerful dimensions to the creative process and, with mobile as a core part of the Creative Cloud offering, Adobe is committed to empowering its users to do their best work anywhere. With our suite of mobile capture and creation apps, you are no longer tethered to the desktop to capture your initial burst of creativity or inspiration. Now, to further extend the capabilities of the Creative Cloud ecosystem, we’ve opened up the Creative Cloud platform and built the Adobe Creative SDK (the same technology that’s used in our own mobile apps) to enable developers to build amazing new creative experiences of their own. Read on to discover some of the apps in the Creative Cloud ecosystem. We’re working with these companies to enable seamless creative workflows with our desktop products and give you access to the best creative tools as well as all of your Creative Cloud content, anywhere you go.


Bazaart simplifies the complexity of professional photo-editing by completely re-imagining the user experience on mobile. Their recent integration with the Creative SDK allows users to seamlessly switch between editing photos with the Bazaart app on mobile and Photoshop on the desktop, as well as to import Creative Cloud Assets and access Creative Cloud Market design resources. Bazaar
t users can now easily import a Photoshop PSD file from their Creative Cloud account, preserve the individual layers, continue editing it within the app and then export new Bazaart collages as Adobe Photoshop .PSD files.

    I love Adobe Comp. It’s perfect for laying out book covers. But I do have one constant frustration. Cover text has to be typed by hand. There’s no way to create a set of possible text snippets, review them, select the best, and then paste it into the appropriate frame without risking a typo. Contrast that with how easily graphics and stock photos can be stored, chosen and inserted.

    It’d be great to have a cloud-synched iOS app that would manage text snippets as smooth as graphics.
