Adobe introduces the Creative Cloud Express mobile app, adding a new tool to its various cloud-based solutions for designing and publishing shareable content. The tool should enable creatives to develop content on the fly.
Specifically, the now released mobile app helps content creators create and distribute multimedia content via a simple drag-and-drop interface. This includes creating social media posts and stories, invitations or marketing materials such as logos, flyers and banners.
The mobile app combines various Adobe technology into a single solution. These include Adobe Sensei AI and the large Adobe asset libraries, giving mobile app users access to thousands of high-quality templates, 20,000 premium Adobe fonts and 175 million Adobe stock images.
The various assets and templates can be customized with the Adobe Sensei AI machine learning platform. For example, Quick Actions can be used to remove backgrounds, resize and merge videos, and convert existing video files into animated GIF files. Other current Photoshop tools are available as well.
For content sharing, the mobile app has many sharing options via the built-in social media and content scheduling tool derived from ContentCal, a company recently acquired by Adobe.
