Adobe’s iPad apps have certainly come a long way. Around two years ago, Photoshop for iPad was launched—albeit without a couple of desktop features—while iPad versions of Fresco and Illustrator were released soon(ish) after. And if you’re looking at having Adobe’s entire suite of design apps on your iPad, the company has announced a new bundle that will, according to them, save you up to 50 percent compared to buying each app individually.
The Adobe Design Mobile Bundle comes with Photoshop on the iPad, Illustrator on the iPad, Fresco on the iPad (and iPhone), and other apps. You’ll also have access to Adobe Fonts, Behance, and Portfolio—along with 100GB of cloud storage. There are two subscription options: USD 14.99 (~RM62) per month or USD 149.99 (~RM623) per year. Do note that this bundle only covers iPad apps, and you won’t be able to use the subscription to access Adobe’s desktop apps.
“The Adobe Design Mobile Bundle includes our best design apps for the iPad at 50% off when purchased together. They all work with touch and Apple Pencil, so it’s easy to create great designs.”
Meanwhile, the company has also introduced a number of new features on its tablet-friendly design apps. Fresco now comes with animation capabilities on Fresco—which is also available on the iPhone—while support for desktop Photoshop’s brushes will also be available on iPad “soon”. Adobe also says that the ability to rotate the canvas on both Illustrator and Photoshop has been included on iPad versions, a direct response to feedback from current users.
At the moment, the Design Bundle does not appear to be available from the Adobe SEA website, so it’s a little difficult to verify if the bundle will really save you 50 percent. However, in the U.S., a subscription to all of Adobe’s iPad apps will set you back USD 52.99 (~RM220) per month, while there are options with cloud storage as well. In any case, we’ll be sure to update this article once we receive word on local pricing and availability.
