I've been a photoshop user for a long time, and it'll stay like that for a while. But i just recently bought an ipad and tried out Procreate, and it made me really frustrated with how primitive a lot of photoshops menus and features are, especially when using something like a Wacom tablet that has touch capabilities.
Just adding stuff like 
  • Gesture menus (tapping with finger to open multiple choice menus)
  • two finger tapping to undo/three to redo
  • Having a Touch Friendly UI mode that's easy to turn on and off so artists and designers can have a better time, and enjoy using the program without so much of a need for a mouse and keyboard 

    Needs much better UI scaling, allows user to turn off certain tools in touch mode, etc.

  • Smoother touch interaction (The few touch options that are in photoshop are clunky and barely ever work)
It just really sucks being a user of this program for at least 8 years+ yet it doesn't seem like Adobe or the team working on Photoshop has made any greater effort to improve quality of life stuff for people that use the software. Then jumping over to procreate, and almost every feature is extremely polished and well refined, as well as the fact that they are constantly adding new features at a much faster rate than Adobe is to Photoshop despite being an arguably much smaller company in comparison.

This will probably go unseen by anyone that can make a difference, and most likely ignored by Adobe but oh well...
