Adobe has announced that their Creative Cloud suite of apps is now available for Chromebooks. What they did was modify their existing Android apps, so they are now compatible with selected Chromebooks. Considering these devices are mainly used in schools, this could be a step forward in education, and the best thing is – these apps will be available free of charge for students and teachers.
Adobe has announced six apps for Chromebook users in their first round of Creative Cloud Apps, and these are:
- Photoshop Mix,
- Lightroom Mobile,
- Illustrator Draw,
- Photoshop Sketch,
- Adobe Comp CC,
- Creative Cloud Mobile
This is only the first part of the apps to be released, and Chromebook users can expect a new set of apps later this year. Adobe Company has made this announcement shortly before Bett, which will be held in London from January 25 to January 28, 2017. So, if you’re visiting, maybe you can drop by at their stand and see what they have prepared.
As the apps are free for teachers and students, and therefore more available, I believe this could raise the quality of classes in schools. And this is not only useful for future photographers, videographers, designers and other creatives. I think that kids from all sorts of schools could benefit from creativity, both while they’re in school and after they graduate. And based on this study by Adobe, it seems many students and teachers would agree with me.
