Will there ever be a good Photoshop for android as it is available for iOS? Or did adobe decide only rich people need good apps?

No, your Galaxy cannot run Photoshop, only Photoshop Express which is NOT full feature Photohop.

Here's a quote: "The answer is both yes and no, depending on your tablet. A cutdown version of Photoshop, known as Photoshop Express, can be run on most tablets, and even some smartphones. To run a full-blown version of Photoshop, known as Photoshop CC, you would need a powerful tablet that runs Windows 10."

Currently on android there is a few different apps but non of them compare to the photoshop avalible on the ios devices. The iPad has a somewhat full version of Photoshop and this would be great for andoirds as well. Especially for the tablets and editing on the go. Is there any plans to bring this out. Thank you.

@warren_heaton Hi Warren, Thanks for your reply. Interesting figures. It makes sense for Adobe to be focussed solely on the Apple side of things judging by the market share they have. Although I have used both latest versions of the iPad pro and the Samsung Tab, the android offering looks competitive enough to win the benefit of the doubt. I guess Samsung needs to work hand in hand with Adobe on the development side of things rather than just offer complimentary prices on Adobe products.

*ANAND KUMAR Samsung makes a great device, but Apple dominates the tablet market with the iPad.  If you look at just 2019, Apple did more than double that of Samsung. https://wallstreetexaminer.com/2020/10/apple-dominates-stagnant-tablet-market/

Please could you let me know when I stated that I would use Photoshop for iPad on my Samsung device? I didn't. Here's a picture of my iPad displaying Photoshop for iPad, taken on my Samsung device. I even turned the camera's watermark on, just for you

It will be interesting if an App written to work on Apple's iOS actually works on Android, a different OS...

There are so many variations now (Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Photoshop Camera, Photoshop Fix, Photoshop Mix, Photoshop Express -- did I even get them all?) and so many devices that I kind of miss the days of Photoshop 2.5 where all you needed to worry about is if your Mac had enough scratch disk space.

Dave@EDS: I'm not sure if you are aware, however people are allowed to own both Samsung phones and iPad devices. I therefore have downloaded Photoshop on my Apple iPad device.

Dave@EDS I understand this, and the reason I came to this forum, as instructed to by the Adobe agent, was to try and find out the reasoning why it isn't compatible

Like Photoshop Mix, Photoshop Camera is an app that's in the family of mobile apps that share the Photoshop name, but it's not Photoshop for iPad which is... more or less... a start of the desktop version of Photoshop re-imagined for touch devices.

It is already available on the play store, and the a71 is running the same version as Android as the latest S line, so doesn't make much sense as to why it isn't available

@ Kieran Andrews: Not going to happen because there are so many versions of Android on market and it would require a different version of Photoshop for each version.

Adobe Rush was code written for iPad, macOS, Windows and AndroidOS (not necessarily in that order).  It's not a port of Premeiere Pro.  Photoshop for iPad is a port of the Photoshop code base.  For that reason alone, we may never see an Android version.

If image editing with Photoshop on your mobile device is important, you'll have to switch to iPad for the time being.  From the brief conversations that I've had with the Adobe teams, there are way too many variations in Android devices and the Android OS.

My thought is that the cost that would have to be invested in doing a complete  rewrite to accommodate Android users would be a non starter for the company. You don't simply paint the barn doors to be able to do such a massive effort!  Cannot just port over to Android anymore than you could decide to start teaching US kids in public schools in Mandarin next semester. We are talking millions of bucks required for a minimal incremental return!
