There's no shortage of PDF apps on the App Store. PDF converters, readers, editors, the list goes on and on. Many of these are not necessary since Apple has included a powerful PDF converter directly into iOS 10 and later. This means the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch can convert almost any web page, email or document into a PDF file for saving or sharing.
Lightroom users can enjoy several enhancements and new features in the latest version of the mobile app. Adobe Photoshop Lightroom for iPhone version 2.1 is now available on the App Store. The update brings iOS 9 and iPad Pro compatibility to the table, as well as several new ways to capture and adjust images on the go. Photographers can also use Lightroom for mobile to share pictures, and with a Creative Cloud membership even more features can be unlocked.
Adobe has added to its list of iOS apps with yesterday's release of Photoshop Fix and Capture CC. Both are available on the App Store free of charge, giving iPhone and iPad photographers more options for creating the perfect image. When it comes to Capture CC, features found in several Adobe apps have been consolidated and the older apps will no longer be updated.
Adobe is known for making complex software like Photoshop, not releasing free apps for Apple products, but that's exactly what the company did this week. Adobe's new iOS App called Voice is geared towards professionals and students, but it is also accessible to your basic consumer. Adobe describes its new video creation tool as a new way to breathe "new life into static presentation formats".
The app allows users to create animated video presentations to be used on social media or shared on mobile devices. Adobe Voice promises to be easier than shooting a video and better way to get your message across than using a slide-show presentation.
It may be experimental and reference an animal you've never seen, but Adobe has released Wallaby to help developers convert Flash content into HTML5. In theory this allows the Flash content to be viewed on iOS devices including the iPhone and iPad. Apple has been clear about it's dislike for Flash technology, and will not allow plug-ins to view Flash content on its devices.
Steve Jobs claimed the technology was outdated and inefficient, and Apple has much to gain from its own App Store content. Adobe has been battling the Flash restrictions from the beginning. The company has been working on Flash app development tools, which were stalled temporarily when Apple changed the terms of its developer agreement to ban the tools.
