Passionate about improving services and experiences for the people that use them.

Already a popular app on tablets, Adobe is now making their Photoshop Touch app available on mobile phones, with a near identical feature set.

Familiar Photoshop elements such as layers, filters, selection tools and all the usual adjustments are included, and the user is able to edit high-resolution images up to 12 megapixels with three layers.

Images can be edited in either landscape or portrait mode and saved as jpeg, PNG, PSD and PSDX file types, along with the now obligatory ability to immediately share via Facebook, Twitter or Email.

From a user experience perspective, those already familiar with Photoshop and the Adobe creative suite will feel immediately at home within the environment, although the smaller screen size and touch features do make it tricky to be as artistic as you might want.

The interface can feel a little fiddly because of this, and whilst solid as a design and photo manipulation tool, brush strokes and other creative flourishes can be rather awkward.

The app is available for the iPhone 4s and later models and requires 4.0 Ice Cream sandwich.
