Mobile for Android handsets released

Adobe Mobile Android

iPhone users got to lay their hands on the Adobe Mobile and now it’s the turn of Android owners to explore this innovative software. The Android application offers users quick and easy image-editing tools, color adjustments and instant photo-sharing capabilities.

The photo editing application enhances the camera-phone experience by enabling users to browse for their photos online and on their Android device, right from the handset. Some of the functionalities that the Mobile app offers include crop, rotate and flip.

“Adobe is excited to extend its digital imaging capabilities to Android phone users so they can take control of their growing collections of mobile photos. Mobile is a great resource to edit, upload and share photos in a few short moments. It’s the perfect complement to the mobile phone cameras found on Android devices,” stated Doug Mack, vice president and general manager of Consumer and Hosted Solutions at Adobe.

With the Soft Focus filter, users can create a subtle blur effect and also carry out color adjustments such as exposure, saturation, tint changes and classic black-and-white. Further, users can also upload their edited photos from their mobile phone to their account via an Internet-connected computer.

Owing to the Android API, new tab-based user interface allows users to view local and online content. Android users can also automatically upload pictures to albums in the background, even when the Mobile application is not running.

The Adobe Mobile for Android application can be downloaded for free from the Android Market.
