Adobe Answers Your 'What About Android?' Question

Sometimes, people forget. Even Developers. Once, people forgot about Dre, and it was a disaster. Lately, its Android that has fallen victim to being forgotten, and it sucks. Twitter has made several changes (and released new apps) that bypass Android altogether, and Meerkat is just now making its way to Android. Adobe, who make a series of apps for creative minds who like to use mobile devices and platforms, have also been accused of forgetting about Android. In a blog post, they assure us all they have not.

Aptly named "What about Android?", Adobe makes an attempt at reassuring the Android faithful they've not been forgotten:

While we initially launched these apps on iOS, we didn't forget you Android. We're working hard to develop Android phone support for some of our most popular apps. But we want to do it right, in a way that complements the strengths of the Android user experience and design. While we can't offer specific release dates, you should expect to see the first of these apps starting in Summer 2015.

Until we get Adobe Android apps, the company says we should give Behance, Behance Creative Portfolio, Creative Cloud, and Lightroom a shot.

Adobe didn't specifically say when the Android version of their apps would come, but did note they were creating an Android version of the Creative SDK. That could be the reason Adobe has left Android hanging so far; the SDK "will allow the creation of more Android apps that connect you to your Creative Profile", suggesting Adobe is trying to be more platform for Android than just a series of apps.
