Adobe is going to make available its highly popular apps for chromebooks. A list of Chromebooks that will support Android apps can be found here.
“In a world where creativity is more important than ever to both students and teachers, making sure that students have the tools they need to be creative is important to Adobe. The popularity of Chromebooks in the classroom has exploded, and we’re thrilled to offer students access to Adobe tools on these devices, allowing them to learn the way they do best – by doing and creating. That’s why we’re so happy to announce that in the coming weeks, six updated Android applications will be optimized for Chromebooks.
Users with Chromebooks that support Play Store apps will be able to download these apps from the Google Play Store as part of the beta that Google announced today. These Creative Cloud apps are free to download and use.
I’m really pleased to share that the applications available in the coming weeks are:
- Photoshop Mix
- Lightroom Mobile
- Illustrator Draw
- Photoshop Sketch
- Adobe Comp CC
- Creative Cloud Mobile
We’ve made some optimisations to these apps to take advantage of Chromebooks’ unique benefits, including: faster load time, optimizing the apps for Chromebook screen size, enabling the Escape key and the Back button, Chromebook camera support, and adding selected keyboard shortcuts.”
