Need advanced photo editing while on the go? Then Adobe’s Photoshop “for Phone” might just be what you’re looking for. It’s based on “Photoshop Touch”, which has been available for iPads and Android tablets for some time, but is customized to better suit smaller screens. It also happens to cost half as much, at $4.99.
Like the tablet version, the phone version offers “core” Photoshop tools found on the desktop, like advanced selection tools, filters, layers and so forth. There are a number of fun filters that are also included, like Color Drops, Ripple and Acrylic Paint.
The app makes good use of Adobe Creative Cloud, so you’d be free to make some edits on your phone and then finish the photo at home (using CS 6, of course), or vice versa. The nice thing about this service is that the files are left in tact, so the full PSD will operate just the same on either the phone or desktop.
As mentioned above, Photoshop Touch for Phone is priced at $4.99, and it’s available for both iOS and Android devices.
