This app has been really one of the most popular apps in the iOS market. In my opinion, I think android needs to get a supply of good art apps, . To be honest, with my experience in Adobe Illustrator draw and adobe photoshop sketch have been quite decent, but to me, it just seemed like a beta app than a full-fledged professional application.
Of course, this is the company's choice, but in my eyes, I think adding fresco, photoshop, and illustrator for android would be a good idea.
criticism is also allowed in this post.
Thank you for reading!
Fresco is a relatively new app, and Adobe seems to be building it based on what users request. Which could lead to the lack of professional application you mention. For me, I can already see it becoming too much like all the other apps with everyone asking for thing which exist in other apps to be added to Fresco.
I like it as a drawing app, I don't want to see it developed beyond that to include text and many other features I'm sure others want to see.
Seeing that Fresco is now available on Windows, I'll be surprised if we see it go to Android, but I don't know Adobe's plans, so that's just my opinion.
I'm sure that it's coming. Fresco is an amazing app and it's only getting better.
They announce the end of Adobe Draw and Adobe Sketch, two of my favorite mobile apps for creative work. And in the same pop-up text they recommend to switch to Fresco, WHICH IS NOT AVAILABLE ON ANDROID!
RIGHT?! I have a subscription so why can't I have the the damn app. It doesn't make sense.
I get tired of feeling like a second class creator because I don't use apple products. When I see things like teathered photography and app development like this only for apple products it feels like a slight to the rest of us that prefer PC and a huge majority of the world on android products. It one thing to do an initial release with a follow-up on android, but when a fully built app has been out for a year or more and we still haven't seen it cross platform, it's very frustrating. This goes for more than just Fresco. This seems to be a suite wide issue effecting many adobe products.
I agree. I will never buy an Apple product, and really get sick of being treated like Uncle Barney living in the condemned trailer park on the other side of the tracks. I love my Samsung phone and tablet, and I use PC.
Get used to it. Too many Apple fanboys and companies like adobe cater to the stream of money, and it isn't with Android. Conform or get left behind. That's the way of the world.
No. You're wrong. That's the way of the weak willed, unimaginative, and uninspired. It is easy however, and so it is the way of many. Refusing to accept conformity is far from a guranteed fate of being left behind though. As a matter of fact, it has often been those that resist conformity that have had original ideas propel them to success. In the case of these Adobe apps, I don't need them. None of us actually do. All the refusal to include an Android version has accomplished with me is to send my money elsewhere. I've already found three alternatives that work fine. Better than fine actually.
What are the alternatives?
I agree, and it doesn't make sense given Android has a far larger market share of mobile devices.
I did get told once it is because Android is too easy to 'steal' apps or reverse engineer the code or something.
I've been saying for a while now that Adobe should charge Windows and Android users less because we clearly get less. Adobe clearly has all their focus on Apple and it shows. Now they are removing Sketch and Draw from Android and still no Fresco.
I'd sooner find alternative software, than switch to Apple. Keep pushing Adobe, I'm almost out the door.
It really would be nice if I could get my money's worth from Adobe and they put their pro apps on Android like they do for iPad users. It would nice if they at least confirm if it going to happen or not.
I'm getting really frustrated with Adobe now. They announce the end of Adobe Draw and Adobe Sketch, two of my favorite mobile apps for creative work. And in the same pop-up text they recommend to switch to Fresco, WHICH IS NOT AVAILABLE ON ANDROID!
That's bonkers. Really makes me doubt if I should keep investing in the Adobe CC.
It's just not fair business practice to charge the same price, then cut the offering and limit the recommended alternative offer to only a certain group of users.
At least they could have been so honest as to alter the text for Android users and tell them to f off right away.
I was using Adobe draw app for a long time... I made somany sketches and drawings in Adobe draw app... By withdrawing this app adobe showed very Unprofessional way towards the users... By doing withdrawal you guys are disappointing loyal users... Because you guys released fresco only for apple devices.. What about Android users? You guys are only focusing on ios users only... Why you guys are rationalizing in this matters... If we could afford Apple product why should we go for fresco instead a far more better app is there pro create... In Android there are so many apps but we trust Adobe for the better quality... In returns you guyz did this to us... Really disappointed...
Man.. I'm disappointed 😞 too.. what then would happen to android users when illustrator comes to an end?
I can't believe Adobe would phase out Draw and Sketch without even launching Fresco on Android. I literally just bought the Samsung Galxy Z Fold 3 with the pen so I could draw on my phone more often. What a bummer.
I've switched to infinite Painter. It's the best app on play store actually. The 7th version will be just 😍. Consider that the team of dev is formed of 3 persons! It's available on Android, iOS, iPadOS , Chromebooks, Macbooks, Window 10 and 11.
I contacted Adobe about this and the chat conversation was painful, to put it nicely:
