With Adobe MAX now complete, it is time to take stock in the new announcements made last week. In case you missed any of the awesome Keynotes, click the image below to see Day 1 (Design) or Day 2 (Developer).
One of the big announcements made during the Day 1 Keynote was the new Adobe Touch apps. These apps will expand your creativity using tablet devices. Many of these apps will utilize the new Adobe Creative Cloud also announced during the keynote. I will focus on each of these apps as more information becomes available. The apps will be available on Android devices first, followed soon after on iOS.
Adobe Debut allows you to view and present your Creative Suite files from the cloud on your mobile device. Users will be able to access native Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign files including comps and layers!
Adobe Collage allows you to combine images from the web (Google Images), cloud files and other sources to create a “Moodboard” (collage). You can also add type, scale and edit your images using built in tools.
Adobe Kuler finally comes to mobile devices, allowing you to create and share a color theme with other users both through the app and the existing Kuler website.
Adobe Proto allows users to develop interactive wireframes and prototypes including multitouch features directly on their tablet device. With simple tools and a “Gesture Guide” you can easily design a user experience in real-time as the client explains their idea to you.
Finally, is my favorite – Adobe Photoshop Touch. Yes that’s right, Photoshop on your tablet. Levels, Curves, even Layers will now be available on your tablet via this awesome app. Not only will you have many more tools and options at your fingertips, but you will also be table to roundtrip files directly to your Photoshop application on your computer.
So very exciting times are coming from Adobe and I can’t wait to share insights and overviews with you. Stay tuned!
