Let's be honest: a smartphone isn't really the ideal tool for editing images or tweaking layouts. But there comes a time in every designer's life when you're on the move, you haven't brought your iPad, and you need to do some last-minute fiddling with an image or design.
The app costs $4.99. It's essentially the same as the iPad/Android tablet app (which costs $9.99) but downsized for the smaller screen.
No universal option
If you want the option of working on both your phone and tablet, you'll have to download both apps: there's no universal app or two-for-one deal. Still, in the grand scheme of things it's not a huge amount compared to the several hundreds you'll pay for the full versions of Photoshop.
Like its tablet cousin, the app offers you the same core Photoshop (opens in new tab) features, including layers, selection tools, adjustments, and filters, plus you can use your smartphone's camera to fill an area on a layer with the 'Camera Fill' feature.
Sync between devices
When you buy the new app, you get access to Adobe Creative Cloud and 2GB of free storage. That mean you can start a project on your smartphone and finish it on your tablet, or back in Photoshop on your Mac or PC (as long as you've bought all three pieces of software of course).
You can download the new app today for iPhone (opens in new tab) and Android (opens in new tab). If you want to learn more about it, check out this official post by Adobe's Stephen Nielson (opens in new tab).
