If you're entrenched in Adobe's creative ecosystem, or just want to try a new photo editing and storage solution for your mobile devices, you may be interested to learn that the company has brought an official Revel app to the Play Store.

Before discussing the app, it would be prudent to remind readers that Adobe Revel works on a plan system with free and paid options - for free, you get unlimited photo and video imports for 30 days. After that you're limited to 50 total imports per month. For $5.99 per month, you unlock unlimited imports. Those interested in finding out more can check out Adobe's official Revel site.

Adobe pitches the Revel app as the latest extension of the service, which is reaching Android for the first time (excluding of course Adobe's Revel Importer app). The service, for those unaware, is essentially a cloud photo backup and storage platform. The app adds minor photo edits to this (think filters, cropping, and red-eye removal), and touts Revel's collaborative prowess, inviting users to share with family members, encourage relatives to share their own photos, or automatically sharing daily moments with simple settings. All of this, of course, is done securely.

The app also plays nice with Photoshop Elements 12 and Premiere Elements 12, allowing for expanded editing in those programs and easier importing of results into your Revel library. Revel might be worth a look from anyone who hasn't already landed on a photo storage solution, but the limit on free accounts doesn't really foster the kind of free-flowing photo collaboration Adobe touts, so it may not be an appealing solution for everyone.

      Hmm... it isn't showing that way for me. Try refreshing?

    The app looks nice and appears to offer functionality that I thought iOS Photostreams should have offered from the beginning (shared albums that anyone can contribute to). However, the paid model is going to discourage people from using it. Also, in my testing, it does not send any sort of push notifications to collaborators when images or comments are added. Lots of room for improvement.

    The first screenshot looks like the bast@ard child of iOS and Android. Grrr!

    So, how about some redesign of Photoshop Touch, especially for phones, Adobe? I like its functionality but I barely use it because it looks so ugly.

    Why the hell do I need to make an account if I'm going to be using this offline.

      How the hell else are they going to lose your credentials / credit cards / secret answers if you don't create an account? You're not creating an account for them, your doing it for the [script] kiddies.

    I'd rather have adobe-flavored video streaming. Just sayin'...
