Now that Apple has a tablet with a stylus it would be great to see a FULL version of Photoshop CS that works on iOS. Please not an express program. Something that professionals can use. If anyone knows if this is in the works, please post. Thank you. Here's the link: http://www.apple.com/ipad-pro/

Apple can create a tablet under osx, just like Microsoft has done with Surface. Who likes microsoft that uses surface, who likes apple that uses ipad pro osx. Adobe do not waste your time reinventing the wheel. Spend more time on new features.

Yes, good point, but Adobe is currently wasting a lot of time to maintain these many single Apps like PS Express, PS Mix, PS Fix and LR CC.

With Affinity Photo, Pixelmator,  and now with Clip Studio Paint having a perfect translation of their desktop app onto the iPad Pro (I think it actually runs better on the iPad Pro) any excuses as to why Photoshop isn't on the iPad Pro are just that,  excuses.  There's no reason why they can't make a version for the iPad Pro,  and I mean a full version,  not these little apps that you have for it, like Sketch where its so limited,  its not usable for me for pro use.   Its disappointing to see Adobe fall behind in the game and letting their competition let them look bad.

I think Apple made it pretty clear when they came out with the iPad Pro that they're not planning anytime soon to undercut sales of either their laptops (very popular) or their iPads (also very popular) by coming out with a hybrid that is neither. Unless Adobe has Apple insider information that a tablet is due out any day now, I don't think Adobe should wait on them. They need to start competing with the other image editing apps on mobile devices now if they want to take the market.

They were among the leaders for the mobile apps when all those devices were underpowered, finding ways to get around device limitations and giving us something we could take to the desktop easily. Now that we have a high-powered iPad Pro available to us, I sincerely hope they are hard at work on how to translate it  to the iPad Pro without dumbing it down to "mobile device" level.  The iPad Pro has some serious processing power that changes our expectations of mobile devices. We'd pay for a good image editing app from Adobe. They don't have to offer it in the App Store for free. It's a costly enterprise, but the longer they leave us without something, the stronger their competition obviously becomes.

Hi everyone,  I originally posted this question 3 years ago.  Thank you for all your replies!  You may or may not have seen the news this week that the newest iPad Pro, to be released sometime in early 2019, will indeed support a full version, albeit an iOS app, of Photoshop CC!!  With that in mind, I notice that the iOS printer user experience is still less than satisfactory.  I encourage each and everyone of you to send feedback to Apple requesting they improve this.  I for one am excited about the new iPad Pro, but won't be buying one unless they include the advanced printer features that are available on the Mac software.  If you have tried printing using AirPrint, you know what I am talking about.  If they keep the printing the same, that means I will still need a MacBook Pro just to print.  Ugh.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Photoshop could run like desktop on 2nd Ipad Pro.

Hello there!
Have an ipad pro 2nd and i love drawing apps. But t im feeling strange. Something still missing. That something that i can do only with PS on desktop.
I dont want to say the same thing "Please do Photoshop APP for Ios Ipad Pro", but what i would like to say is Why Adobe still refuse to doing ,it?
We are in 2017, Clip Studio paint jas been released just now on the Ipad and its sublime! Someone will say that 9€ month is too much, or that the app is not working so well, but for me, its sublime!
They have put effort and they have done it!
Why a big Company lile Adobe still thinking about this?
You will destroy the entire Market with the app and make all Ipad Pro owners finally happy to draw on this amazing device with an amazing app!
Is there something wrong with Apple??
This could mean finally Professional finished product on mobile devices!
Think about this adobe.
Was you that said " Photoshop is a worldwide app used from professional...." Yeah professionals love and use this app 24h, so this is a hint. New ipad got really powerfull features! Listen to the audience adobe... Photoshop is us

I am the original poster of this question.  Most of you may know that Adobe will be releasing 'Photoshop on the iPad' later this fall:  Sign up here to 'stay in the loop" as they put it:  https://www.adobe.com/creativecloud/photoshop-ecosystem.html?promoid=8WLD54LQ&mv=other

Also, keep your eyes on Fresco.  The paint engine looks amazing, if you see the promo videos of it:  https://www.adobe.com/products/fresco.html

The down side to all of this is the still lame printing experience on the iPad, if you have a printer.  No advanced controls, even with Epson's iPrint, so we will still need our Macs just to print.  Grrr.
