I understand that Fresco is available for Windows desktops but not for Mac. Yes, it makes sense that Fresco was designed with Windows hybrid touch devices and non-touch devices in mind, considering the versatility of the Windows platform. At the same time, the lack of touch-enabled Macs also played a role in limiting the availability of Fresco on the Mac platform.

Best thing any of us can suggest is to keep an eye on the System Requirements. Other than that we can't give you any insight into Adobe's plans for their software and which OS they plan to have it released on or when.

I've asked that a lot, especially with M Series Macs that can use iPad/iPhone apps. They are aware of the requests though, so it's something that we might hopefully see soon.

Hi @siliconmana @Cleo92,

 

Thanks for reaching out. Fresco on iPad generally uses a touch interface, which is why Fresco is not available for Mac desktops. Many functions on Mac are not possible using the trackpad or keyboard in Fresco.

No doubt, Mac desktops are more powerful than iPad. The only limitation is touch displays on Mac.

 

As of now, there is no plan for Fresco on macOS. Therefore, I would Would you mind upvoting this request here (https://adobefresco.uservoice.com/forums/919786-adobe-fresco/suggestions/43358298-support-fresco-on-...) & stay tuned for updates.

 

Regards,

Anshul Saini

It sounds like you are not aware that there's a Windows version of Fresco, on desktop. I use it on my Windows desktop. That's why it's particularly illogical that there isn't a Mac version, other than it's designed to drive iPad sales.
