We’re live at Adobe Max in Los Angeles this week and today was a really big day. Adobe Max officially started with some developer sessions over the weekend but kicked into high gear this morning with a keynote address and the unveiling of Adobe Touch Apps for tablets. The best part, the Adobe Touch Apps were shown off on Android tablets running Honeycomb.
The Adobe Touch Apps will debut in November with a $10 pricetag which is a far cry from the hundreds (and sometimes thousands) of dollars you pay for similar apps (with way more features) on a PC or Mac.
More after the break
The six apps in debuted today are: Photoshop Touch, Collage, Debut, Ideas, Kuler and Proto.
While these apps arent the blazing full suites we are used to from Adobe, this is a breath of fresh air and seeing Adobe take on a new market is quite refreshing. The Ideas app is available for iOS but the other 5 apps, including Photoshop Touch are available only for Honeycomb at this time. The video above shows us demonstrating the Photoshop Touch on a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. Samsung was in full force today even showing off a new reference model tablet that they said wasn’t coming to market anytime soon.
Although it’s unclear exactly what type of user these new Adobe apps will attract, one thing is certain, mobile bloggers are welcoming something to make editing, and creating content on the go easier.
