Last year, Adobe teased Illustrator on the iPad at its annual creative conference. Expectation was that Adobe Max 2020 would see a fully fledged app, ready for release, and Adobe did not disappoint. Illustrator on the iPad is available to download nowas a standalone app or as part of the full Creative Cloud suite. And the best bit? You can get it for free for the first seven days. See our guide to how to download Adobe Illustrator for more details.

The app promises to bring users the core design capabilities of Illustrator on the desktop, with a reimagined experience for the iPad and Apple Pencil. It adds new features including radial, grid and mirror repeat, which, from the demos, look like they'll be very welcome additions for artists and designers.
