The new way to use Photoshop on your iPad

You may remember one particular day in June this year, there was quite a lot of Adobe coverage on Creative Bloq. That's because the software giant had just released its new CC 2014 suite, including Photoshop CC 2014 (opens in new tab), Illustrator CC 2014 (opens in new tab) and InDesign CC 2014 (opens in new tab) as well as its first ever hardware (opens in new tab). So you'd be forgiven for missing the news that Adobe had also launched five free new apps (opens in new tab), including one that brings the power of Adobe Photoshop software to the iPad.
