With the new Creative Cloud October 2017 releases, the Adobe Preview App was removed from the stores and is no longer supported in the new Photoshop update.
I love this app, and use it as part of my framework. Why it was removed?
Will be any kind of substitute?

I thought I saw that i integrated within XD yesterday on Adobe Max 2017 live streaming. It now previews on your device. I think they call it different name.

Adobe XD does connect natively to mobile devices, but all my work until now was made in Photoshop. Adobe Preview was the only app that mirrored Photoshop screens.

I would like to know why this decision was made. Preview was a great software and no other was put in place. I presume it was removed to promote XD and his mirror feature.

Well, I don't use XD massively. All my work is in Photoshop. I'm very disappointed with this decision :(

Is XD intended to be some sort of Photoshop replacement?
Is it a photo manipulation and design tool?

Just FYI - I don't design websites... I DO design emails and I update update websites. I need to design graphics for them that also look good on the phone.

Should I stop designing these types of graphics in Photoshop?
Is that where this is going?

Why would they do this?!?! - I'm really upset right now.
Or -  Is there something even better in the works? I sure hope so!

For now... I need to revert to the previous version of Photoshop and won't be able to update it again until I discover a stable work-around.

I used Adobe Preview all day, every day. I even purchased an extra iPhone and have it mounted right next to my monitor so I can see it more easily.

Again... Why on earth would they do this?!?!?!

If I can't update Photoshop without losing the Devise Preview...
What is the benefit of maintaining a monthly subscription?
Why not buy the last version and call it a day?

Just try another similar tool: PsMirror, works just like Device Preview do.
