Adobe brings Photoshop Sketch, Fix, and Comp CC to Android

You now have more sophisticated tools for drawing, wireframing projects, and editing photos on an Android phone or tablet.

Adobe is dropping in three new mobile apps to bolster its creative offerings on Android.

The company announced Wednesday that Adobe Photoshop Sketch, Fix, and Comp CC are joining the substantial portfolio of what the company produces for Android.

Comp CC is a full-blown wireframe and design tool that’s targeted for both digital and print products. It includes numerous design templates for mobile and desktop devices. The icons and tools have been thought out well for use on the smaller screen of a phone if you want to do some work there.

Comp CC is a full-blown wireframing tool for your Android device.

Photoshop Fix is designed for image retouching and restoration. You’re able to heal, smooth, liquify, and make other edits and tweaks on the go.

Adobe’s Photoshop Fix gives you more editing options for your images.

Sketch, as the name implies, is more focused on illustration. You have a number of different drawing tools to annotate existing images or start from scratch.

Along with the new apps, Adobe also bumped up Illustrator Draw to version 3.0. It includes enhanced brush stroke tools, and more settings to tweak the pressure and velocity of your sketches.

Why this matters: Adobe is still the king of creative tools, and the company is putting more effort into its Android portfolio given the size of Google’s platform. Another potential target is the Chromebook, which now has a select number of models that can run Android apps.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
