Adobe's Photoshop Touch apps for Android received a modest update today, adding a couple of new features and fixing a handful of bugs. Both the phone and tablet versions were updated, the former to v1.2 and the latter to v1.6. Here's the full changelog:

What's New

• Fixed two crashers: when syncing and when storage is low
• Added more brush types for fine-tuned corrections and painting
• Added the Quick Selection tool, similar to Photoshop
• Implemented auto-recovery of unsaved documents
• Added ability to use Android fonts with the Type tool
• Keep the original EXIF metadata when editing a JPEG
• New customized Gallery for selecting images
• Lots of other bugs fixes!

The addition of new brush types is certainly welcome, as is the handy quick selection tool. Auto-recovery of saved images in the event of a crash will hopefully prevent your projects from force closing into oblivion. Android font support seems a rather odd omission to have at this point for such an established app, but at least it's there now. Head over to the Play Store to grab the updates.

    I tried this early on and uninstalled it. I believe because it had terrible file system integration.
    Basically I'd import a photo from my phone and Adobe couldn't see it. Also couldn't see Dropbox, Box, Google Drive or anything else useful. Has this changed?

      Yes, the new import interface is so bad that I'll downgrade to the older version.

    Aviary and PicsArt are good enough for me

    This app is such garbage and its hardly been updated since its debut. Would be so much better if it were a native app and not adobe air
