After watching the demo video, we can't help but be amazed. Gone will be the days of using the color picker to try and find the perfect shade of orange. Instead we will just whip out our tablet and start using our fingers to find the perfect combination of colors - like grade school minus the mess. And if these three initial Adobe apps get you excited, just wait until the talented developer communities get their hands on this. Who knows what type of creative and useful apps this technology will yield!
Are tomorrow's promises a little too far off and you're looking more in the realm of "now"? Here are three touch-gesture based apps you can download now for your iPad:Brushes: a painting application designed from scratch for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Featuring an advanced color picker, several realistic brushes, multiple layers, extreme zooming, and a simple yet deep interface, it is a powerful tool for creating original artwork on your mobile device. SketchBook Pro: MacWorld's 2010 "Drawing App of the Year" is designed for sketching for all levels. Layers, brushes, and virtual tools like airbrush and markers gives this app a professional feel to it, even though anyone can just get started playing around and creating. Layers for iPad: like Photoshop, as the app's name implies, this painting program supports up to 5 layers and 30 steps of undo for painting and image manipulation. Using many of the same recognizable tools as Photoshop makes this app a solid on-the-go tool for touch illustration (partner it up with your own DIY iPad stylus for better utility).
