Adobe Nav Lets You Control Photoshop from Your iPad

Adobe announced new tools today that lets developers create tablet apps — called Photoshop Touch Apps — that interact directly with Photoshop CS5.

It’ll be available for $2 starting in early May, but we can’t wait to see what other apps developers will unveil before then!
