After months of testing, Adobe is finally ready to send Photoshop for iPad live for all users.

Mario Kart Tour multiplayer beta arrives in December, but only if you pay up

Back in September, Mario Kart Tour launched for iOS and Android without a component many consider critical to the Mario Kart experience: multiplayer.
