adobe touch apps adobe creative cloud 300x199 Adobe Unveils Apps with Creative CloudThis week Adobe unveiled six applications designed with a touch interface that will run first only on tablets using Google’s Android operating system.

The Touch Apps for the Android market, which include the first touch version of Photoshop, are bound together by a service called Creative Cloud that synchronizes creative work across a broad range of devices.

The apps address multiple areas of the creative process including image editing, ideation, sketching, mood boards, wireframing, and presenting all of that work to clients.

With this release, Adobe is trying to move customers away from a one-time purchase of its Creative Suite into monthly subscriptions. The company expects that by 2015 half its revenue will come from subscriptions – representing 800,000 users and over time, the company expects 100% of revenues from its digital media division to come from subscriptions.

David Wadhwani, senior VP and GM, Digital Media Business Unit, Adobe said “Adobe Touch Apps will transform how people use tablets – from mere consumption devices to vehicles for expression and creativity. Our touch apps will be a key component in Adobe’s full Creative Cloud offering, coming in 2012.”

Here a quick look at the new apps:
