Adobe never gives specific dates for release in advance. I don't think most companies will announce unless they're within days of release. We must simply have patience.  '-} 

It's a good thing, too, that they don't promise a date. We don't need software that's been released far before it was stable and at least free of any critical bugs they found along the way.

Well, Affinity didn't port the whole desktop over and they changed a lot of the features and interface. They've also got over a year head start on Adobe.

From the sneak peek, Adobe is promising to eventually (probably gradually) produce the same features with as close to the same look and feel as is possible on the desktop. Just to figure out how to do that is going to take time and a big effort on their part. It would be a bit disappointing to most of us to get there and discover it's as radically different from PS as Affinity or Procreate is.

So my vote goes to having a sound start on an interface that both accommodates Apple's iPad oddities and limitations, AND still is easier to learn quickly compared to a completely different program. I'd also like to see a couple of PS-distinguishing features there—something that helps us see a difference between using one of these other apps and their version, and a taste of more to come.

I'm sure they could come out with something quickly that followed previous iPad apps conventions (and they've already got a lot of those mobile apps), but I'd rather they took longer and followed Adobe PS conventions as much as is possible.

Then again, it IS easy enough for me to say that because I have both Procreate (bought in to that with the old iPad 2, and it's come a long way—great for painting, btw), and Affinity iPad (bought recently on one of their good sales), and while I miss PS a whole lot when using them, I can use my iPad and get a good start on documents using either or both of these. My Affinity edits on the iPad easily go to Affinity desktop, and from there into PS for finishing, so I'm not twiddling my thumbs while waiting.  '-}
