Adobe today released a new iPad app dubbed Comp CC that offers “rapid creation of layout concepts for mobile, Web and print projects” that can later be used in Photoshop CC, Illustrator CC and InDesign CC. Adobe first previewed the new app last year when it was still an early prototype, but today the app is arriving on the App Store for all.

The best 4K & 5K displays for Mac

The Adobe Comp CC app is available as a free download on the App Store and requires at least a free Create Cloud membership.

Features include a gesture-based UI, an infinite timeline, Typekit fonts, integration for importing images and direct export of layouts to InDesign CC, Photoshop CC, or Illustrator CC, and, of course, Creative Cloud support to keep everything saved in the cloud and access assets:

Comp CC extends the mobile and desktop workflows enabled by Creative Profile and Creative Cloud Libraries. Creative Cloud Libraries consist of design assets — such as images, colors, text styles, brushes and more — that members have created with Creative Cloud tools. And a member’s Creative Profile surfaces their libraries, as they move from app-to-app and desktop-to-device, in the right context — enabling members to effortlessly work across devices and apps. Thanks to their Creative Profile and associated Creative Cloud Libraries, Comp CC lets designers quickly combine the Typekit fonts, relevant images, color swatches and shapes they need to jump-start layout-design projects on iPad and later continue their work in CC desktop tools.
