    Almost exactly one year ago, Adobe launched Adobe Photoshop touch for the iPad. The application included just enough core features to get by on a mobile device; however, it certainly was not a serious replacement for the full-blown desktop version of Adobe Photoshop.

    Adobe has Wednesday morning released Adobe Photoshop Touch for mobile phones. It takes after the iPad version in looks and features, however it works on the iPhone and iPod touch both the 3.5-inch and 4-inch display versions. Due to the power-hungry application, it will require an iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, or iPod touch 5G. It won't support the slower single-core A4 devices.

    The mobile phone version of Adobe Photoshop Touch will support layers, selection tools, adjustments, and filters. Users can also add graphical text, strokes, drop shadows, fades, and much more. Many of these features are not available in most of the Photoshop wannabes for iOS out there.

    So what will Adobe Photoshop Touch cost you? If you remember correctly, the iPad version of the app is $9.99. Luckily, the iPhone and iPod touch version is only $4.99 and you can download it from this link.

    Note: Adobe Photoshop Touch is not a universal app. You will need to buy the iPad and iPhone/iPod touch versions separately.

    Dude, it's photoshop it would be unnatural if it wasn't power hungry.

    However, you would think that because it's been designed for a mobile device, a phone especially, that they would have found a way to make it Significantly less power-hungry.

    So, adobe vales the core features of photoshop at 10 dollars, and the "extra" features make up the other $590 the program costs on computers?

    By power hungry they don't mean it will drain your battery as much as you need efficient tech. Sure it will use your battery considerably more but at Max probably as much as infinity blade otherwise it's not going to be much of a drain.

    Also they wouldn't discontinue apps or older things because they are worried it will drain your battery. No companies do that and consumers don't really want that considering some would rather be able to use its capabilities with small battery life rather than limited and more battery. They are only allowing it on 4s-5 because of the A5+ chips

    Magically? That's like expecting them to make it significantly less CPU and memory heavy on Windows 98 machines. If it were a simple matter of programming more efficiently, then they'd be wasting a lot of potential on faster machines. If I make it take forever to finish something just so that it doesn't run my battery down as quickly, it is actually worse because my phone used more power over that same time to complete the work than it would have. The faster I finish the faster I can get back to a low power lock/standby state.
