You can now use Adobe Capture CC on Android tablets as the app has just been updated to add the support for the device type. Previously only available to Android users who were on smartphones, Adobe Capture CC is just one of many different tools on the platform which help creative designers and artistic individuals get the most out of the Adobe Creative Cloud accounts. Specifically, Adobe Capture CC is a tool that allows users to grab design assets from various places. You can use the app to extract colors from pictures and use those as color palletes for use in other Adobe applications like Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Illustrator and more.

The app also lets you do things like create brushes from photos, or create vector graphics from things you’ve drawn in another Adobe app. While not completely useful if the app is entirely on its own, when paired together with a collective of the other Adobe CC applications that can be found on Android Adobe Capture CC can be a powerful app to have in your pocket. The app initially launched on Android for smartphones over a year ago, so it’s a wonder why Adobe waited so long to bring the functionality and support to tablet users, as it would seem right at home on a larger display.

Nevertheless, reasons for the wait aside those with an Android tablet should be able to download the app for free from the Play Store as of now and install it onto their device. Having said that, you’ll still need an Adobe Creative Cloud account to make use of the services and the app’s various features, as you will with any otherĀ Adobe CC app that’s available on Android. This latest version update of Adobe Capture CC should bring you up to version 2.4, and whether you attempt the install from Google Play on a desktop or go straight the tablet’s Play Store icon, the app should show up and show compatibility for the tablet. In addition to adding tablet support, Adobe notes that there have also been some bug fixes and improvements added in this update, although they don’t mention any specifics in regards to what those fixes are.
