    Did you sign up for the beta program as was mentioned back in May '19 on The Verge? I see there was also a post about Photoshop CC for iPad on Apple.com (NL) in October '18.

    Yes I did sign up for beta.
    Don’t think it is a scam, I simply had to answer a survey about my workflow

    Yes, I had the same email from Adobe about a week ago also asking to fill in a survey. I dont think that it is a scam.

    Exciting to see a major professional industry standard app coming to IOS which is virtually the same give or take as the desktop version. Hopefully others will follow suit in the next few years. if it is like Microsoft’s implementation of office for Ipad then there will be alot of disappointed people though.

    The million dollar question - will it be a one time purchase or will it require a subscription plan? I'm betting on a subscription.

    Software development is actually a tough business. Subscription model is the only sustainable business decision at this point. One time purchase doesn’t bring in enough income for the development companies to keep adding / improving features.

    Also if they really put a price that can compare with how much they really want to charge people for lifetime update and support then most people won’t pay because of sticker shock.

    I have the Photography Plan subscription and am not opposed to subscriptions for software I rely on. But people have such strong reactions to them, especially Adobe. The number of people complaining about it and then switching to Capture One which actually costs more money if you regularly update it always strikes me as really odd.

    If there was a mobile plan that had Lightroom and the new Photoshop I could see doing all of my photo work on my iPad - the hardware is certainly powerful enough. I may end up trying to just live in Lightroom anyway.
