What is this? For a year they have told us this would be equivalent to a desktop version of Photoshop. Not at all. Where is the shape tool??? I’m so sad :(

I suspect the choice was: roll out an in-progress version, or delay it another 3-4 years until every feature was crammed in.

Did you honestly think that Adobe could built an iPad app in one year, that has the same functionality as the desktop has accumulated in over 25 years?

I expected them to do a lot better. How do you not include the shape tool???

There are lots of tools in Photoshop, and what you use most is very personal. To me the shape tool would not have a high priority, because most of the work I do is compositing of photos. So for me Select & Mask would have a much higher priority, for example. Adobe simply can’t satisfy us all so quickly.

I understand, but what they've put out is not a stand alone app. One must still have a computer if they want to use photoshop. They should have been upfront about it being a companion app.

I don't care one iota about the shape tool. I see a post complaining about importing custom brushes and I don't care about that either. I have other needs, and I suspect that everyone will have their own priorities. You'll either have to be patient or buy something else.

Shape tools (and vector paths) and Scripts are important to me, too. I don't see them on the roadmap, either. https://theblog.adobe.com/photoshop-reimagined-for-ipad-the-journey/

Why no shapes on iOS version?
