Adobe Comp CC
by: Adobe • 440
For those looking to branch out in graphic design, or if you’re just away from your desk for far too long, Adobe Comp CC allows you to use your iOS or Android smartphone or tablet to create designs right on the go. Right after signing in with your Adobe account (or signing up for a free one), you can pick and choose the preset size of your canvas, depending on your screen size. Then, you can free draw, with Comp CC supporting several drawing gestures. The layouts are saved in your CC account for later viewing and editing.
Adobe Comp CC is built from the ground-up for mobile, bringing with it a clean design and very intuitive user interface, feeling like InDesign for mobile. There are also rich text editing options, and syncs quickly and easily to your Adobe CC account.
I would strongly recommend being on a tablet, or at least a smartphone with a large screen, as most smartphones won’t have the size nor the flexibility to actually use this well. As this is a mobile app, don’t expect all the full features of desktop counterparts.

Lay out an idea with real assets like photos, text, shapes and fonts. Send the wireframe to Photoshop CC, Illustrator CC, InDesign CC to refine and finish.
Graphic designers and artists can explore a concept using:
• Prebuilt mobile, print and web sizes. Create your own custom size.
• Gestures that drop in placeholder text, basic shapes, graphics and editable text boxes.
• Guides and grids to align and work with spacing controls.
• Professional fonts powered by Typekit.
• Send the idea to the desktop where it will automatically open in InDesign, Illustrator or Photoshop.

BUZZ FROM USERS AND PRESS
“This is one of the best apps on my phone.” – George Butler
“Overall I love the progress this app has made. I’ve used it for professional layouts for web design ideas and it’s a great mobile design tool to get things going in a project for rapid iterations in the starting stages.” – Ben MacKay
“Firstly, I think Comp is a great application, so many times those sketches on paper are so much easier for expressing ideas and pop! This app turns that into a reality. I love having the app in my pocket so I can trial something if I have an idea while walking or commuting.” – Andrew Paul Hayward
