Hello,

 

Is Adobe Fresco coming to Android? If it is, are there any release dates yet or perhaps even a beta tester program?

Hi prubini87, Thanks for your interest in Fresco. As of now Fresco is only available for iPad but we're working on developing the app for other platforms and devices. I'll definitely pass on your feedback to the product team.  Stay tuned for more updates! Regards, Sheena

2 years and counting... still nothing on Android.
Seriously no respect and interest for Android's community of creators and artists? That's a shame.

I'm more than sure that Adobe respects the Android community. Just as I am pretty sure that they're eventually going to have a version for Android. Its not something they can just flip a switch and release.  I mean, there was a full year before Adobe announced what was going to be Fresco, under the name of Project Gemini before we saw the full release for the iPad and we still had another year before we saw a Windows release. Android, along with Windows are a bit more difficult to develop for than iOS because there are an insane amount of variations of Android and Windows devices in terms of devices and processors and everything.  And I can imagine Android being even more difficult because there are so many versions of Android that are optimized totally differently than each other based on the device manufacturer.  And not to mention that not all Android devices are on the same version of the OS, unlike iOS/iPadOS, where the vast majority of devices are usually on the most recent version of the OS.  Its not a slam on Windows or Android devices. they're great devices,  but all the variations only serve to slow things down in the development.

Dave, I'm sure and aware about those extra challenges and troubles while developing for Android. Having said that, Adobe already has a multitude of apps working on Android ecosystem both for tablets and smartphones, including being the first environment were they've launched Premiere Rush (in partnership with Samsung), months before iOS version. Also, this is a primary need for Android tablets (virtually nobody needs it on smartphones) and I can't see why they can't do something similar to what was done on Rush's launch by focusing on most used devices (market share). I'd bet few would cover more than 90% of the market and Adobe already knows which are those devices, since we all have Adobe apps installed on them.

 

Besides this, and maybe even more important, I've know lots of artists who would not change Procreate (iOS exclusive) for any other app. And there's a big big void on Android on those areas, basically all the apps try to be the "Procreate for Android", making even more sense for Fresco being available for Android first, not later/never.

Plenty of companies with less resources than Adobe release apps on Android (many in sync with iOS versions) on a regular basis with no problem. Clearly, there is no respect for Android users from Adobe otherwise we would have heard something from them by now on development. Instead, it is pure silence and no action. Instead, Adobe has prioritized whatever one-sided deal Apple has baked up for them.

Where's this Android release that you were pretty sure of, Dave? You still think Adobe has respect for Android users? No effort whatsoever to address calls for an Android release is a pretty clear sign that Adobe is letting Apple make their business decisions.

I don't think its about if they care about Android users or not,  it's all about the fragmented user base. It came out for iPad first, because all the iPads all have the same version of iOS. It came out slightly later for Windows, because though Windows is more customizable and slightly more fragmented than iOS, its still pretty similar no matter what device it was.  The problem with Android is that there's completely different versions of Android based on what device you're using with completely different UIs and all over the place about which version,  it could be 7.0 or 9 or whatever.  It makes it very hard for them to develop and make it work.  If and when it comes out for Android,  its highly likely, its only going to be for a select few models

Yeah, but that is what they did with the Windoows version, it was only available on the Surface (I think it was only Surface Book lineup and only a select few of those with the right specs. They could easily do the same for (let's just make it easy for myself keeping it U.S. based) Samsung tablets and pen supported, recently released flagship phones. Which at the time could have been the Note lineup; now think the Z Fold. 

Has anyone else has noticed the update to all the apps saying "Adobe (App Name) for SAMSUNG"? I just find it mindboggling that they do that after they remove Sketch and Draw. Still nothing on Aero, and even Rush seems like it's headed for the trash heap too. They nixed Spark and rehashed it as CC Express, so what about PS Express, Mix, & Fix? Nothing there for ages for Android users either, but PS & AI is basically fully loaded on the iPad. Fresco isn't the only app they kill us on.

I don't think we're asking for a miracle in saying EVERY Andriod should be able to use it. Just let those who likely wanted to get that fancy new tech, but now have no app* to draw on that makes sense to their other Adobe workflow. Obviously speaking from experience lol 😂 😭😭
* within Adobe and able to sync/use things Adobe has promised from CC (working anywhere); not saying there are no alternatives, just that we pay the same money, for what seems like a lot fewer features; like we're paying for development that doesn't even come, and we constantly justify it by staying...because industry standard. My thought is they are trying to stay ahead of/keep up with Affinity before they pull all the freelancers and upcoming creatives. 😂

This is incorrect. I'm an Android developer. I've created multiple complex apps working for companies for past 8 years. Yes, Android's versions are fragmented but the developers who build Android APIs make it super simple to support previous versions out of the box. It used to be more difficult back in the Java days about 5 years ago but since then the fragmentation is not an issue. Also, Android has become more and more popular, good devices have become cheaper resulting in most people using the latest Android versions. So fragmentation of Android versions is NOT an issue for any company wanting to build apps.

I agree. This is very unfair for us designers who use Android. You dump the illustrator sketch app and don't even give us an alternative

On Androïd Not anymore Sketch, Fresco, Draw all these 3 applications  are for several months only available on Apple. Adobe is becoming a subsidary of Apple ?

 

We pay Abode Premium each month, it is a shame we can not anymore draw orsketch on our Android tablet.

I'm hoping it comes out soon as I haven't had as much fun drawing with other apps after losing access to Photoshop Sketch.

 

PS was a great app and while I couldn't draw images with an alpha layer, it let me draw smoother lines than the apps I've had to fall back on like Infinite Painter and its tools were easier to use.  I think it was a ridiculous choice to shut it and the accompanying apps in that suite down across all platforms ("Execute Order 66" comes to mind) and not consider the fact that maybe half of the user base will feel abandoned and go elsewhere for quite a while / not return.

 

The intelligent thing to do would have been to let Android users use them still, at least until Fresco was developed.  Then you could abandon those apps on Android, either leaving them in the app store but say you no longer offer support for them, or do the removal maneuver you've already done.

While I doubt it is likely to happen, I still have Photoshop Sketch installed, just incase who ever it was that made the decision realises this simple correction, and how it could help Adobe save some face.
