Photoshop is a name that carries a lot of weight in the design community and for good reason: it’s one of the most
bloated feature-rich image editing applications out there. Now imagine having a touch version of the vaunted Adobe staple in the palm of your hands.
All you have to do is buy a tablet that no one else is.
That’s right, creative professionals: until “early 2012″, the only place you can get your hands on Photoshop Touch is on an Android tablet running Honeycomb 3.1 or later. Nevermind that’s there’s about 1,000 apps on the iPad that are at least as capable as whatever Adobe is offering: from a business perspective, what the fuck could Adobe possibly be thinking? When they boned Mac users in the 80s, 90s and…well… now by shitting all over their Creative Suite release schedule, at least they could say they were chasing market share. The iPad has 3/4s of the tablet market. Is this some kind of pathetic tantrum they’re trying to throw?
There’s a saying that resentment is like taking poison and waiting for the other person to die. If you want to hang around in the long term, you’d do well to remember who needs who, Adobe.
