Adobe Eazel, Color Lava and Nav for iPad get new updates, price drop

Despite their differences, Adobe never stopped making software for Apple’s platforms. First it was the Mac and now it’s iOS. And why would they? After all, they too are making money off them. In fact Apple products are often used for creative work, the kind of stuff that would require the use of Adobe’s products.

This year they launched three applications for the iPad, Eazel, Color Lava and Nav. All three apps have just been updated and offer more features, that too at a lower price.

Adobe Eazel is a companion app to Photoshop CS5 and lets you create paintings on your iPad and access them in Photoshop CS5. The app was originally priced at $4.99 but is now for $2.99. Among the list of updates is:

• Eazel image gallery
• Ability to save and open Eazel images
• Performance improvements
• Bug fixes

Adobe Color Lava is also a companion app to Photoshop CS5 and you can use it to mix colors and create custom swatches and five-swatch color themes on your iPad. Here too the price has dropped from $4.99 to $2.99. The list of updates include:

• Ability to capture an image from within Adobe Color Lava to create a new color theme (with iPad 2)
• Bug fixes

Adobe Nav for Photoshop lets you transfer images from your iPad to Photoshop CS5, browser, reorder, view and zoom in to images on Photoshop CS5 on your iPad and also access Photoshop tools from your iPad. The price has dropped from $2.99 to $1.99 and the list of updates include:

• Send an image from your iPad photo library to Photoshop CS5 from within Nav
• Bug fixes
