Adobe now available to Android developers

Adobe has announced that third-party application developers can have access to the Mobile for the Android 1.1 editor. Mobile was introduced for Apple iPhone and iPod touch users last year, with a worldwide roll-out extending availability in December. The free application enables users to edit and share photos via what's billed as a simple intuitive interface.

However, Google Android developers have greater scope for using Mobile as the basis for new applications.

"Unlike iPhone, the Android platform allows us to make the editor broadly available to developers so they can provide it within any application they are working on," said Doug Mack, vice president and general manager of Digital Imaging and Rich Media Solutions at Adobe.

"Photoshop functionality can then easily be accessed from an online auction, real estate or social media application so users can quickly fix photos and make them look their best, before being showcased." Mobile for Android 1.1 offers a range of photographic effects such as Vibrant, to boost photo colours, and Pop, which promises to add a 'pop art' style to images.

Soft Black and White, and Warm Vintage tools can be used to add a classic and aged effect to photos, while users have access to Vignette Blur, White Glow and Rainbow tools are also available to users.
