Adobe launches another desktop-class imaging and graphics app on the iPad: Illustrator, designed to launch Win 2020, announced today at its annual MAX conference. Last year, Adobe announced a similar plan for providing Photoshop for the iPad. This app was released on the App Store on early Monday.
Illustrator for iPad is according to the company still in the “early” development. Therefore, we do not know exactly what it will look like compared to the desktop version. However, the focus is on making the most of Apple Pencil-based touch and input available only on the iPad.
As in Photoshop, documents created on one platform are available in full fidelity and can be edited on other platforms through Creative Cloud storage.
The app will now be available in a limited private beta version, but the group of users will remain very close until Adobe has succeeded in driving the development process forward. You can sign up now to register interest.
You may receive pre-launch access to support the beta release and build process.
Adobe has already contacted “thousands of designers” to find out how best to create a version of Illustrator that is best suited for using tablets in their work.
If the Photoshop for iPad release process is a measure, Illustrator will not offer any feature parity at launch next year, but it’s a starting point for making the iPad a true one-stop shop for creative professionals prefer an Adobe working environment.
