As the title suggests, bring Actions to the iPad Version as soon as possible.

Adobe released Photoshop for iPad in a completely unfinished state.   They advertised that they would "aggressively update" photoshop and add the missing features.   Nearly 2 years later and it is still missing important features that we need.    Missing Actions is one of the biggest losses and renders the software unusable for most people.    As someone who teaches workshops and image editing, I have been directing students towards Affinity Photo for iPad as it is a near perfect clone of Photoshop for desktops and is not missing any features.    Adobe flat out lied to us; It has been years and this software is still unfinished.

Hi @tracyc7852669 

 

Currently Photoshop for iPad does not support Actions. You can add your comments here for the product developers at Adobe:

https://feedback.photoshop.com/conversations/photoshop-mobile/photoshop-mobile-support-for-actions-i...

 

Since your question is about Photoshop for iPad, I have moved this from the Photoshop forum where you posted to PS for Mobile.

I'll chime in and say that adding Actions to PS on the iPad would be a huge workflow advantage.

Damn! After reading that the full version of PS is available for iPad I went ahead and ordered a 2021 Pro. Only to find out that this was only a marketing hoax. Please, release the fuller full version of PS for iPad - ideally the full full version if possible. And please to note: it's mostly convenience that keeps people in the Adobe ecosystem.

So in March they said "almost there" but no update since then? I need to replace my iMac and like the portability of the iPad Pro, but if I can't use actions then photoshop is useless. Really disappointing.
