Adobe intros three iPad apps, brings photoshop functionality to tablets [video]

Adobe on Monday unveiled the latest version of its Creative Suite software, version 5.5, which includes a new SDK for building smartphone and tablet applications that can interact with its famous Photoshop desktop software. To showcase some of the possibilities brought about by its new SDK, Adobe also introduced three new apps for Apple’s iPad. Adobe Eazel is a finger painting app with enhanced controls and nifty multitouch support, and creations can be stored locally or beamed over Wi-Fi to Photoshop CS5. Adobe Nav allows users to move menus and other controls off of their PC displays and over to the iPad. The app also allows users to view Photoshop documents on their tablet displays. Finally, Adobe Color Lava turns the iPad into a modern color mixing palette that pushes color creations directly to Photoshop CS5. Eazel, Nav and Color Lava will become available some time next month for between $1.99 and $4.99 pending Apple’s approval, of course. In the meantime, hit the break for a video of Adobe’s new apps in action. More →

Further collaboration with Adobe and BlackBerry Academic Program announced at Dev Con

Further collaboration with Adobe and BlackBerry Academic Program announced at Dev Con

With the 2009 BlackBerry Developer Conference kicking off today in San Francisco, RIM has doled out two press releases to get the ball rolling. As many of you may recall, it was back in August that we first broke the news that RIM was going to implement support for Adobe Flash in its browser for 2010. Two months later, this and more was confirmed by Adobe. Now RIM has come forward and announced a furthering of their partnership. Developers will be able to take advantage of Flash and Creative Suite 5 by directly exporting elements created within into various BlackBerry development tools. The goal of this is to quickly and efficiently create applications and widgets that are more multimedia rich and offer a far greater user experience than is currently possible. The same family of Adobe products will also be able to work in tandem with the new BlackBerry Theme Studio. Another thing announced today was the BlackBerry Academic Program. Having already been piloted by some 500 students over the past year, the Academic Program gives colleges and universities the knowledge, tools and curriculum it needs to offer students BlackBerry-specific courses in development, administration and support, a field which has been and still is experiencing tremendous growth. More details for both Adobe’s further collaboration with RIM and the BlackBerry Academic Program are available in the read links after the jump. More →
