Adobe releases Mobile editor for Android developers

Adobe this morning announced that third-party developers now have access to the Mobile for Android 1.1 editor, allowing them to make it a part of their applications.

The news comes four months after the company released Mobile for Android, enabling users to easily edit and share their photos. That app got an upgrade, too.

Amusingly, Adobe also takes a bit of a swing at Apple for not being able to provide such tools to iPhone app developers. Said Doug Mack, vice president and general manager of Digital Imaging and Rich Media Solutions at Adobe:

“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. 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.”

The updated version of Mobile for Android 1.1 brings effects like Vibrant (to boost photo colors) and Pop, which brings a ‘pop art’ style to images. The Soft Black and White, and Warm Vintage tools can be used to add a classic and aged effect to photos. Other new effects include Vignette Blur, White Glow and Rainbow.

Adobe Mobile for Android 1.1 is available as a free download in all countries with Android Market in English only. Search the Android Market for “” to find it.
