The plural of iPad is ‘iPad devices’ says Apple (You’re using other brands wrong, too)

The plural of iPad is ‘iPad devices’ says Apple (You’re using other brands wrong, too)

Yesterday I Photoshopped a picture of a stand that I built for my two iPads out of LEGOs. Do you know what's wrong with the previous sentence (except for the fact that I did no such thing yesterday)? I used all three of those brand names incorrectly, according to the companies that make them.

The changes will affect users in certain countries, including Australia and New Zealand, and are being made to offset currency fluctuations. The price increases will start on May 1, and is unfortunately the opposite of Adobe’s recent December changes, which saw a price decrease in Liechtenstein and Switzerland.

Adobe Acrobat and Dropbox integration finally lands on Android

Adobe Acrobat and Dropbox integration finally lands on Android

It is perhaps already a matter of fact for Android users that very rarely do they get new treats first before their iOS counterparts. It is great news when apps for games launch at the same time for both platforms but, more often than not, iOS gets to call dibs. When Adobe and Dropbox inked a partnership last October, the integration between Adobe Acrobat and Dropbox was initially limited to iOS and then later on to Windows. Now the fated day has arrived for Android users as the two roll out the same features to the more than 300 million Acrobat Reader users on Android.

Adobe Lightroom 2.0 for Android adds an in-app camera

Adobe Lightroom 2.0 for Android adds an in-app camera

Last spring, Adobe rolled out an update to the company's Lightroom app for Android phones. Among other things, the update brought about the ability to edit images in RAW. Unfortunately, the ability to edit raw photos doesn't help you much, if you're not actually shooting them that way. But the latest update to the app will help with that.

Adobe patches Creative Cloud bug that was deleting Mac data

Adobe patches Creative Cloud bug that was deleting Mac data

Over the weekend, a very nasty bug hit the Mac version of the Adobe Creative Cloud suite. Bugs that cause constant app crashes are annoying, and can drive a person mad after a while. However, when your software starts deleting files that you've spent minutes or even hours crafting, it's a serious issue. And that's exactly what started happening to users.

Adobe Creative Cloud users on Mac beware, bug deletes user data

Adobe Creative Cloud users on Mac beware, bug deletes user data

A recent update for the Mac version of Adobe's Creative Cloud software suite has been discovered to contain a bug that results in user files being deleted without permission or warning. The problem is that after users install the 3.5.0.206 update and then log into Creative Cloud, the contents from the first alphabetically listed folder in the root directory are deleted. Users that haven't yet downloaded this update from Adobe can breathe a sigh of relief, as the company has acknowledged the issue and stopped releasing the update.

Adobe Photoshop Sketch Review with iPad Pro and Apple Pencil

Adobe Photoshop Sketch Review with iPad Pro and Apple Pencil

Over the past week and a half I've been using the app Adobe Photoshop Sketch for iOS with the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil. It's not what I expected. I expected it to be an experience in which the stylus (the Apple Pencil) would be speedy and the app would have simple basics. As it turned out, the Apple Pencil is speedy, yes, but latency is so extremely small it's as if the hardware were made for this app specifically. This goes for the app interacting with the Pencil as well - tapping between brushes and backing up and drawing - all of this felt entirely natural.

Google’s ads will be Flash-free in 2017

Google’s ads will be Flash-free in 2017

We've known for quite some time that Flash's days are numbered. When Apple first announced that they wouldn't support it on their crazy new phone back in 2007, people went crazy. But they were onto something, and the rest of the web seems to be following suit. The latest domino to fall is from Google, and it's a very welcome one.

Flash (Professional) is dead! Long live Adobe Animate CC

Flash (Professional) is dead! Long live Adobe Animate CC

Adobe has just announced the release of its Animate CC software, which is significant for more than just the users of its previous Flash Professional software. It isn't a simple of case of adding new features and then renaming an old tool. Given the significance of both the tool and the name, it more formally marks the end of an era. With Animate CC, Adobe moves away from the now derided Flash technology, putting its eggs into the new HTML5 basket, a trend that will hopefully be picked up by more content creators on the Web.

Adobe Portfolio lets anyone create a simple website

Adobe has expanded Creative Cloud with a new service called "Portfolio." Using Adobe Portfolio, anyone can create a simple website, though the purpose is to showcase and otherwise present creative and professional work, such as photographs or paintings. Adobe points toward the Internet's increased use as a resume platform and the need for personal websites sans the skills needed to start from scratch.
