In-Stock alert: Photoshop for iPad (with 30-day free trial)

UPDATE: thanks to one of our readers for the alert ~ there’s a limited time Creative Cloud promotion that includes the Photoshop for iPad. Link coming later as I don’t have the email account on this device.

A lot of the iTunes reviewers don’t appear to be very happy with the current version.

Note that only select iPads are supported, namely various PRO models, the Air 2, 5th generation iPad and the Mini 4. Also supported are the first two versions of the Apple Pencil. Looking at the compatibility list, the iPad line-up has become spaghetti without sauce 😉
