Breath new life into PS Touch, don't let it disappear with this next iOS update. I have been using PS Touch for several years, I had an old iPad 2 and the app has been on it since I bought it, I believe it was the first app I got from the App Store. So, I was unaware that Adobe had dropped support for the App, but once I upgraded to a much, much newer model I started getting a warning to contact the developer because the app was no longer in the App Store, and it needed to be upgraded or it won't work with iOS 11 when released later this year.

Since I was on such an old model of the iPad it started not being able tho run many apps, not PS Touch, so I moved my primary mobile usage to my new iPhone 6 and there I had the chance to experiment with almost all the Adobe mobile apps, the ones with Photoshop related capabilities, or at least that's what the descriptions promised.

Now I have to get a little harsh. I have been a Creative Cloud member since 2013, and continually give Adobe products and support rave reviews. But this suite of mobile apps that Adobe is currently presenting in the App Store are terrible. PS Express, PS mix, PS Fix, and so on. It's as if someone said let's break up the capabilities of Photoshop into multiple apps, and lets make it really confusing for the consumer to know which app they should use for their project, oh, and let's leave out some of the functions all together. Then comes the UIs, really not good. It's a huge step backwards in the forward thinking of Adobe ingenuity. The apps are as if Adobe wanted something like everything else out there, and they succeeded, they look like the other apps in the same category but are as bad as or worse than the competitors.

One exception is the newer updated versions of Creative Cloud. I'm so happy Adobe finally worked out the issues and now have a 5 star app on their hands.

I just don't understand what happened, there was a great app that already existed, it just needed an update, well overhaul, to keep up with the technology Adobe puts into their other products.

So I close with a plea... PLEASE bring back an updated version of PS Touch (Should just be PS Mobile) or take the current Apps back to the drawing room and come up with something that fosters creativity and powers it with technology, and make the so they have a clear purpose and place in a functioning workflow. I have faith that Adobe can do it, I see the great ideas in the features you keep adding to the mobile apps you have, but they just are fatally flawed from inception.
