Can you verify that for Eazel, Photoshop is not required for creating an image and saving it on the iPad or emailing it? I understand it's required for editing but I can't see why I would need PS just to create on the iPad and leave it there or email it.

@ICT Tower - That's a good point, digging deeper it seems the 'requirement' for Photoshop is only if you want to send the artwork from Eazel to your computer, but artwork can be saved locally on the iPad as a JPEG. We are still trying to find the resolution for local saves though.

I can see a use for the Colour Lava app but the Nav is more gimmicky in my eyes. The Eazel would be worth exploring however it appears to lack the main functions for creating finished art, it looks like a poor attempt at making an entrance into the mobile scene.

@iPad Creative
Thanks guys, that would be a useful piece of information.

@Shaun Mullen
I agree with you about the Nav app, I thought about getting a similar app for Adobe Lightroom but then realised that the value of an external conrol surface is in knowing instinctively where the keys are so you can tap them quickly. This isn't possible on an iPad because there is no tactile feedback, you have to look at the screen to know where the keys are. Kind of like playing a video game, you don't see gamers looking at their controls at all. So, nice idea but I don't think I'd find this one useful either.

I was really looking forward to these app, but with all the bad reviews and the prices for each i'm going to pass.

Also, they should have combined all of these into one app and call it something like hmm maybe...Photoshop ?
