We’re excited to share the first public release of Creative SDK for Android. It’s now possible to connect your users and Android apps through the Creative Cloud. Not simply a port from iOS, the Creative SDK Android is built from the ground up and embraces Android design and development standards.

This early release of the Creative SDK Android is optimized for phones — tablet support coming soon — and offers the following components and APIs:

  • Creative Cloud Assets & Lightroom Photos — Browse and import design assets directly from the Creative Cloud or use the API to save new content. Additionally, access all photos sync’d to the cloud from Adobe Lightroom on the desktop.
  • Send to Desktop — Integrate your apps into the Creative Cloud workflow. Instantly open files created by your mobile apps in Photoshop and Illustrator on the desktop.
  • Publish to Behance — Allow your users to showcase their projects on the premiere social community for artists. Users may also share works-in-progress to get real-time feedback from their peers.
  • Image EditingAviary, the most popular image editor on mobile, is now part of the Creative SDK.  The Image Editing component of the Creative SDK functions just like the Aviary SDK and we’ve included a collection of new features:
    • Overlays – Users can now make unique and creative images with our stencils, perfect for sharing on social media.
    • Vignettes – Aviary’s vignette tool makes it super simple to place a dark or light vignette over your photo, with support for custom size, shape, and intensity.
    • Highlights, Shadows, Tint, and Fade – These new adjustments allow your users to have more creative freedom when it comes to manipulating their photos.
    • Draw Brush – On iOS, our user-favorite Draw tool now comes with re-built brush technology that makes drawing on photos feel more natural and lifelike.

This is just the start of Creative SDK Android. In the next few months we’ll be releasing a new component for Creative Cloud Market and as well as adding the ability to extract layers from a PSD. We’ll also be including new APIs that allow your apps to creative Adobe file formats like PSD, AI and INDD.

Of course, we want to hear what you’d like to see in the Creative SDK. Lets us know in the comments and don’t hesitate to reach out if you need help with your integration. You can get Creative SDK Android v.0.2.20 along with a sample project from the downloads section.
