Adobe developing a ‘full version’ of Photoshop for iPad as part of major platform rewrite, reportedly launching next year
Bloomberg reports that Adobe is currently developing a cross-platform Photoshop app for iOS, described as a ‘full version’ of the popular desktop image editing suite. Adobe’s Creative Cloud product officer confirmed the plans and wants to get them ‘on the market as soon as possible. Bloomberg’s sources indicate the new app will be demoed in October, targeting a 2019 debut.
Adobe currently has several mobile ‘Photoshop’ apps on the App Store, but they constitute small slices of the full desktop app feature-set. The new app will compete against upcoming platform rich photo-editor apps like Affinity Photo. Photoshop for iPad would be included as part of the Adobe Creative Cloud subscription, which starts at $9.99 per month.
