Adobe Photoshop iPad Apps Released

We briefly covered the upcoming companion apps for Adobe's Photoshop recently and they are now available for download in the App Store.

You will need Photoshop 5.5 (Version 12.0.4) for them to work with your iPad.

The final prices, App Store links and Promo videos are below, be sure to let us know what you think of them in the comments:

Adobe Color Lava $2.99 (£1.79)

Adobe Nav $1.99 (£1.19)

Adobe Eazel $4.99 (£2.99)

iPad Integration with Photoshop - What do you think?

When we saw the videos following Adobe's iPad app announcement last week we were excited. It is obviously not just about the iPad, but what other tablet is currently out there in the hands of millions of users?

Three New Apps

Adobe Eazel looks nice with some innovative multi-touch UI design, including using all 5 digits at once, but what got us most excited is the use of the iPad as an extension to your Desktop working space with Adobe's Color Lava and Nav apps. None of these apps are released yet but pre-release copies have been reviewed already and you can see them in action in the video above.


The new apps use the Adobe Photoshop Touch SDK to enable direct interaction with Photoshop CS5 (newest update required). This SDK is already available to Developers so we can hope to see a whole little industry open up around tablet integration with Photoshop and we will be keeping an eye on this area in future.

What Do You Think?

We will no doubt have more to say about each of these apps as they are released, but for now we want to know what you think? Are you a Photoshop user? Can you see these apps fitting into your creative workflow? Or is it all a fuss about nothing? Let us know in the comments.
