Although the tablet version of Adobe Photoshop Touch remains one of the most handy apps on Google Play, it hasn't offered you the opportunity to work on your Android smartphone.

Now, the development team has finally granted that option in a second app with Photoshop Touch for phone.

At long last, that means no more having to send images and photos from your Android phone to your tablet via Dropbox, just for the convenience of editing.

Per Adobe's team, here's what you can do with their suite's new release:

  • Enhance images using popular Photoshop features such as layers, selection tools, filters, tonal and color adjustments
  • Apply effects and add graphical text for endless creative possibilities
  • Edit images as large as 12 megapixels with layers
  • Combine images together quickly using the Scribble Selection feature, and easily refine your selection with the Refine Edge tool
  • Automatically sync images to Adobe Creative Cloud™ with free 2GB of storage

Since it's a smaller version of the tablet app, it's also being offered for half the price at $4.99 on Google Play, with downloads and installs currently going through the roof.

(Plus, it's way cheaper than the desktop subscription.)

It's a pretty clear indicator that shows people have been waiting for this smartphone version, but unlike the tablet app, you'll need to be running Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) or better to use the software.
