Google opened up its Play app store to select Chromebook users last year, and now Adobe is offering versions of its Android Creative Cloud apps for the company's browser-based notebook computers. The following apps will be available 'in the coming weeks' for certain Chromebook users:

  • Photoshop Mix
  • Lightroom Mobile
  • Illustrator Draw
  • Photoshop Sketch
  • Adobe Comp CC
  • Creative Cloud Mobile

The apps have been optimized for use on Chromebooks. They're free to download and use without a Creative Cloud account, but certain features (such as exporting Raw files from Lightroom Mobile) are available only to CC subscribers. The apps can be downloaded to any Chromebook with access to the Google Play store (here's a list of compatible devices,) including a group of Chromebooks being offered specifically for students as part of a beta program.
