[dropcaps]Adobe has fallen behind in bringing many of their mobile apps to Android in recent years, as they opted instead to focus on other platforms instead. While it can be seen as a good thing, since they can work out kinks and issues on other platforms before they hit Android, it does put us behind in getting to test their latest apps and services. It appears that others have noticed as well, as Adobe today released a press statement sharing what their plans are for their mobile apps and their integration with Android.[/dropcaps]
In it, Adobe admits to having given developmental preference iOS but that they plan on changing that here in the near future. Adobe plans on making sure that their first apps are released during the Summer of 2015, but unfortunately they did not offer a more specific deadline. So you can expect the apps to start hitting the Play Store sometime between June and September.
What apps may you ask? Unfortunately, the tech giant didn’t provide too much information as to what apps those might be, other than stating that they are working hard to make sure they work well with Android. One can only assume that they plan on making their Creative Suite available on Android, once they get everything ironed out, development wise.
Adobe is also planning on releasing an Android version of their Creative SDK. This would give developers better tools to integrate their apps with Adobe services, such as the Creative Profile. Adobe is going to be very busy these next couple of months, attempting to bring the same experience to Android that they have already given to iOS users. Hopefully, the wait will be worth it.
