Feature set a huge disappointment

Sorry guys, I love photoshop... but this whole endevour seems like a bad joke. 
I get it that it is version 1. I really do. But honestly - with such a poor feature set - why bother with a public release?

Why not wait a couple more months and deliver a full bodied product?

 

I really had high hopes for a sensible mobile workflow for photography, but with all the iPadOS bugs and serious issues, and now this "demo" of an PS app, I think we're still years from that. 


No curves, no advanced color balance tools, no advanced selection tools, hardly any features at all, quite frankly. 
Right now, the only tool that is usable for me is the healing brush. Yet I can only see myself using this instead of a desktop app + wacom tablet if I'm doing some light work and need to lie down on a couch or sth... It took lightroom mobile about 3 years to get to a more or less useable state, and one of the most important features, batch adjustment, was added just recently for iOS. If Ps will be developed at a similar pace, I'm not optimistic, to put it lightly. 

When can we expect a tool that is actually usable as a standalone app?

If that's the case—you really do get it—then you should understand why this enormously complex software does not have a full feature set on day one. If you can't wait, and you aren't a professional user, you might consider trying one of the amateur apps such as Affinity Photo. I, too, am anxious fore more features, but I have nonetheless already managed to edit a few photos.

I am a pro.
Photoshop for iPad was more than a year in development.

Adobe and Apple advertised it as full fledged photoshop back then.

So come on... no curves? no raw support? This is basic stuff... fully featured seems years away if all they could reliably deliver within one year from announcement is an app, which basically mimics the functionality already present in for a long time in adobe mobile apps alone, not to mention a ton of ther apps which do some tasks much better. So no, I do not get that. 

Right now, Affinity Photo IS the most professional retouching/photo editing app for iOS - and that is, sadly, the point here. PS is not even ahead in terms of speed and perceived brush latency (30 mpix files with a few layers, healing vs inpainting brush, Apple Pencil on iPad Pro 11) even though it seems a much less complex app at the moment. Yep, I edited a few images as well. I could do it much faster on desktop. I could do the same tasks faster in Affinity photo for iPad (even though I'm not a fan of their UI) 

On top of that, the pricing is absurd for the offered functionality. The in app purchase feels like a shady kickstarter for software. "Gimme money" and we'll work on some features someday, maybe. The only remotely redeeming decision on Adobe's part was to include it in the photography plan, but than again, it seems more like an extended public beta, rather than anything else...

You are aware that CLIP STUDIO on iPad Pro was released as a version 1 with a 1:1 feature set of the Desktop version and it too is an enormously complex piece of software? It's not really a positive move pushing something half baked to your *paying* user base especially if it's targeting Pro users.

 

IMO Adobe got slightly cold feet with things like CSP and Affinity going strong on iPad Pro and ProCreate preparing a major new release.

I don't think most people are expecting full desktop Photoshop on iPad the first day it was out. They most likely thought they were caught up to the 90s though.
