CrossOver Preview runs Windows apps on Android and Chromebooks, even Photoshop

Last week, CodeWeavers announced that after three years of development, a preview version of CrossOver for Android would be released. Why was I so excited? Because CrossOver allows you to run Windows programs on Mac and Linux, and they brought their expertise over to Android. After trying out the Preview version for a week (which you can sign up for here), I'm extremely impressed by its capabilities, despite some major limitations.

[App Roundup] Our Top Seven Picks For The Best New Apps Of June 2015

June didn't see any huge releases in terms of Android apps, though we did finally get a publicly-available version of the Kodi Media Center, and Photoshop for Android (yes, yet another version of Photoshop). There are also some new tools for cloud storage fans, and probably the best cooking app on the Play Store. We've got some notable extras (especially if you're a Stephen Colbert fan). Here in no particular order are the best seven new apps from June, along with some honorable mentions.

Adobe Releases Photoshop Mix, Brush CC, Color CC, And Shape CC On The Play Store

Adobe, would you just pick a version of Photoshop for Android and stick with it? After unceremoniously dumping the conventional image editor Photoshop Touch last month and leaving us with the more Instagram-style Photoshop Express, Adobe has now released Photoshop Mix on the Play Store after a period of iOS exclusivity. This app is more powerful than Express, but less powerful than Touch, and attempts to bring a more manageable interface to phones.

In particular the new app has selection tools and basic layer functionality, meaning it's suitable for at least some advanced image editing functions beyond mere touch-ups and filters.

Adobe Announces It's Discontinuing Photoshop Touch And Releasing Three New 'Capture' Apps [Update: Photoshop Mix Coming To Android Too]

Adobe brought the stripped down Photoshop experience to Android tablets back in 2011, and added a version for phones in 2013. In a blog post today, the company says the all-in-one approach doesn't make as much sense. Therefore, Adobe will be releasing three new "capture" apps called Color CC, Brush CC, and Shape CC. The classic Photoshop Touch apps are being discontinued and will be pulled from the Play Store on May 28th.

Adobe, Google Announce 'Streaming' Photoshop For Chrome OS, Open Application Process For Testers

In a bit of non Android-related news that we just couldn't pass up, Adobe and Google have announced "Project Photoshop Streaming" for Chrome OS, which is exactly what it sounds like.

Adobe is looking to bring access to its Creative Suite Creative Cloud suite of products to Chromebook users, and the journey begins with Photoshop.

Before you get too excited, there are a few caveats. First, you've got to apply to be a tester. Those eligible to apply are North American Creative Cloud education member, and a member of the Adobe Education Exchange with a paid Creative Cloud membership. You must also be at least 13 years old, and it will take Adobe 3-4 weeks to process your application.

Adobe Photoshop Express v2.3 Brings Filter Intensity Control, Blemish Removal, RAW Photo Import, And More

Adobe has multiple Photoshop apps on the Play Store, and the simplest of the bunch has received an update to version 2.3 bringing in a number of new features. Adobe Photoshop Express now expands on the basic editing options it provides. For starters, the latest release lets users vary the intensity of filters.

Blemish removal is another standard photo editing feature introduced in version 2.3. Using the tool is as simple as poking on the spot you want to remove and tapping it again if the first time didn't do a good enough job. Here's a quick before and after shot I made with only a little tinkering around (watch the mole).

[App Roundup] Our Top Six Picks For The Best New Apps Of March 2014

Another month has come and gone, which means a ton of app posts on Android Police to sift through. In point of fact, there were fewer notable apps released in March than in the last few months - that's why our primary picks are down to just six. But most of these should be useful to most users, with Per-App Modes and Pixl Preview applying only to root users and Photoshop owners, respectively.

[New App] Pixl Preview Allows Real-Time Previews Of Photoshop Designs And Pushes Images Directly To Photoshop

Adobe has crammed more features into Photoshop on the desktop than most people will ever use, but you can make use of at least one of the features you're (probably) overlooking with Pixl Preview. This app plugs into Photoshop's remote connection system to act as a second-screen preview of your designs.

Pixl Preview doesn't require any additional software on the desktop side – just open the remote connection menu in Photoshop CS5 or higher and set it up. The app guides you through the process fairly well. Once you're connected, you get a live preview of the image you have up in Photoshop.

Adobe Photoshop Express v2.1 Introduces The App's First IAPs - $3 For 'Premium Looks' Filters And $5 For Noise Reduction

Adobe's Photoshop Express app has rocked Android for longer than many of us have, so earlier this year it underwent a makeover for the big 2.0. The new app is zippy, attractive, and designed from the ground up for KitKat. Now Adobe is rolling out 2.1, and the most notable changes are two new in-app purchases. These two packs, already available in the iOS and Windows 8 versions of the app, are the Premium Looks pack for $3 and the Noise Reduction pack for $5.

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.
