“Flash was created during the PC era – for PCs and mice. Flash is a successful business for Adobe, and we can understand why they want to push it beyond PCs. But the mobile era is about low power devices, touch interfaces and open web standards – all areas where Flash falls short.“
Steve Jobs in a letter on Apple.com…
That’s the way, and Adobe must follow Steve’s advice…
Adobe Systems today introduced a new Photoshop app for iPhone that gives users the possibility to edit photos from both their phone and their online library on Photoshop.com.
The app is free and offers some simple tools such as cropping, image rotation, color controls, and very easy one-touch filter effects that can change the look and feel of shots with just one finger. It also features undo and redo controls so that if users make a mistake, or want to revert back to the original, it takes just a few taps.
What makes the app notable (well.. besides coming fromAdobe) is that the entire editing control set works off gestures. Instead of using dials or sliders, users just need to swipe their finger across the screen to change things such as brightness or color values.
