Must have app

First off the bat, it says very very clearly in the supporting copy you must have CS5. To complain because you are too lazy to read is rather foolish.
This app is absolutely the best. If you have CS5 you must own this app it is that good.
I use a Cintiq and this app allows me even more short cuts without having to go anywhere near my keyboard. Also I can have the majority of my tool bars hidden to give me more real estate on my Cintiq screen.
The app boasts a very slick intuitive UI that works brilliantly. The app also holds your current project in its cache. Need to show work in progress to a client or other department? Just wander over with your iPad and flip through your work in the palm of your hand.
Additionally you can open and select your current images via the app. If your cutting and pasting from a source image it's so much smoother now to flip between images.
I love this app so much. It really is the first app I've bought that feels like a true functioning tool that I'll actually use on a daily basis.
Wanna streamline you're workflow at a steal of a price, this is a real no brainer. Can't wait to see what future updates bring.
Well done Adobe!


This app is probably the most useful Adobe have made, provides two hand operation of photoshop with my pen tablet in right and ipad in left with quick access to tools and colour picker etc. very quick transfer of images between computer and ipad and vise versa, this will be my main method for image transfer to pc now. My customers can view work I'm creating from the ipad too. cant believe how well it works, wish id bought it ages ago.
Thanks Adobe. Can you make it compatible with illustrator as well please ;)

Fantastic app!

Really speeds up work, especially when working with multiple files. also doubles as a great, quick way to send photos from iPad to PC.
No input lag and it does what says on the tin. One thing that would've made it even better would be the integration of layers and layer styles. But definitely worth buying!
