Adobe on Friday rolled out an update to its Photoshop.com Mobile app for Android and opened the doors to third party developers.

The move, complete with an Apple dig, means that Photoshop.com Mobile can be built into other applications. Photoshop.com Mobile for Android comes with new photo editing effects.

Photoshop.com Mobile is available on the iPhone, but can't be built into third party apps. In a statement, Doug Mack, general manager of digital imaging and rich media solutions at Adobe said:

Unlike iPhone, the Android platform allows us to make the Photoshop.com editor broadly available to developers so they can provide it within any application they are working on. Photoshop functionality can then easily be accessed from an online auction, real estate or social media application so users can quickly fix photos and make them look their best, before being showcased.

The relationship between Apple and Adobe has become strained to say the least over Flash support for the iPhone and iPad. Also see:

Adobe has a developer site for Photoshop.com Mobile for folks looking for more detail.

  • "Photoshop.com Mobile" is a very clunky name

    Can't they come up with something catchier? Like uh "Photoshop Mobile?"

    What does it do anyway? It's obviously not fully featured.

  • Developers are on hold until the law suit shakes out.

    No one knows if HTC will even be allowed to import their Android based phones.

    • Could have fooled me...

      ...because I've seen a number of launches after the lawsuit came about. Nobody is on hold for Apple and HTC especially when there are phones from Sony, Motorola, Samsung, LG and others...

    Crazy. The screens are too small to even see photo detail, let alone retouch it.
