I'm enjoying Photoshop Mobile on my iPad pro, but as many others mention, it is missing so many important tools, so my workflow is a quite a bit slower.  Does Adobe have an approximate calendar of when we can expect app updates through the year?

Hi Brett,

As Jeff said we have many projects in store for iPad. Which tools are you missing the most?

Hi Hannah!  Thanks for your request of the tools I'm missing most.  As an Industrial Designer, with concept ideation sketching and post CAD rendering clean-up, here are those tools, in order of preference:  
  • Brush Presets
  • Rotate Canvas
  • Shift select and control/command select to select and manipulate multiple items or layers
  • Brush size/shape icon on screen showing brush size as I use it (+ ability to toggle on and off) 
  • Customizable Radial Menu (like available on a Wacom) or other customizable menus, and ability to create my own hot keys.  My Photoshop workflow is significantly better on an iPad when I use an external keyboard.  Cut-n-paste and copy-n-paste are a couple of the main items missing in this workflow.
  • Smudge
  • Polygonal lasso in addition to the ones you've implemented
  • Preset and customizable color pallets
For new concept sketch work, I'm almost solely on my iPad now, though I'm kind of desperate for "Brush Presets" and "Rotate Canvas" there the most.  For my post rendering clean-up, where I need a stylus, I'm using regular Photoshop with Sidecar, but that's quite a glitchy workflow.

Thanks for all your work on this!  Cheers to you and your team!
