This is a Universal App for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch and allows you to not only view the files you have stored on Creative Cloud, but also share them and upload new files from the the built-in camera or Camera Roll. Unlike most other cloud storage apps, the Creative Cloud App also allows you to see your native files such as .PSD, .AI, INDD, etc.

In April 2014 Adobe introduced Lightroom Mobile for iPad and Web. While it’s great having my favorite collections and portfolios with me on my iPad and having them sync and update automatically, I was really waiting for Lightroom for iPhone. I use my iPhone to capture NEW pictures and now that Lightroom for iPhone is here those shots will be sync’d to the cloud and then down to my desktop so that when I get back to my computer those shots will be there. Rather than continuing to talk about it, why don’t I just show it to you here:

Imagine if there was an iPad App that allowed you to tell your story complete with pictures, icons and music and all you had to do was narrate it. That’s exactly what Adobe Voice for iPad allows you to do. This FREE App is beautifully designed and very very easy to get started. I woke up this morning seeing that it had been released on the App Store and after downloading it I was creating my “How I Got Started Story” in a matter of minutes. Adobe Voice lets you grab images from your iPad, iPad camera, Creative Cloud, Facebook, Dropbox or by doing a search for royalty free images. It has a large variety of background music and themes to choose from.
How can I tell my story?
You start off by simply narrating the first slide/image/icon. Then you can choose one of the built-in icons, an image or type text. Then you repeat the process for the next slide and the next slide. At any time you can play back a single slide or the whole story. At any time you can change the music or theme and of course swap out images. Once you’ve told your story, you can share it via email, iMessage, Facebook, or Twitter. Your video story is hosted by Adobe for free. I sent myself the link and once I viewed it in the browser I was able to easily grab the embed code so that I could include it in this post below:
I’m ecstatic to see such a cool product that takes advantage of the mobile nature of the iPad and is so easy to use that I expect to see more people telling their story than ever before.

Actually Adobe Ideas started out as a free App but then it went paid. The price was $9.99, but as of today it’s free again. With Adobe Ideas you can draw, sketch and even trace over a photo. The new version will even pull your color swatches in from your account on kuler.adobe.com. With your free or paid Creative Cloud account you can sync your creations to be able to access them in Illustrator on your desktop. Universal App for iPhone and iPad
Adobe Photoshop Express
While Photoshop Touch is the king when it comes to all the editing power you could expect on a mobile device, the Free Adobe Photoshop Express is great for doing basic things like adjusting the exposure of an image, cropping, framing, special effects and the best noise reduction I’ve seen in a mobile app.
Adobe Kuler for iPhone has to be the most “fun” Adobe App for iOS. It allows you not only the ability to mix color themes with the color wheel, but you can also use your device camera to interactively capture the colors around you for inspiration in your creative projects. Once you capture or mix colors you can sync them to your free account on kuler.adobe.com and into Adobe Illustrator CC.
