Photoshop Fix is finally here for you Androids out there

android operating system domination androidn header
Android users are finally being rewarded for their patience in the form of Adobe Photoshop’s newest app — Photoshop Fix. No less than a year after initially debuting the app for iOS, the powerful tool has now jumped the fence and made itself available to the operating system the rest of the world (or rather, most of the world) uses. So rejoice, Android friends. Photoshop Fix is finally here for you.

Put away your Instagram or whatever other photo editing tool you may be using to touch up your images. This is real thing. Tools included in the new app include the the face-aware Liquify tool, which allows you to toy with facial expressions; as well as Heal, Smooth, red eye reduction, spot heal, and even a clone stamp.

And because Instagram is so popular, you can use Photoshop Fix to add a vignette effect or defocus your image. General characteristics can also be edited by way of color and paint tools, as well as various options for exposure, saturation, contrast, and more. And if you want to switch from your Android device to your desktop and continue working on the same image, Adobe’s CreativeSync will package your edits into a layered PSD file so you can keep going where you left off. That said, in order to access that particular feature, you’ll have to have a Creative Cloud subscription.

If you don’t want to pay for Adobe, however, you can still use Photoshop Fix on Android. But only on Android. And hey, maybe that’s enough for some of us amateurs out there.

So if you’ve been waiting for Photoshop to come to your Android device, your day of reckoning is finally here. Go ahead, make all those images you’ve been hoarding look all the more attractive with a little liquifying, smoothing, and healing.

A new Android 14 update is here — but you still shouldn’t download it
The Android 14 logo.

Google has released the second developer preview of Android 14, as the next major version of the operating system takes another step toward a full release. Like the first Android 14 developer preview, the clue as to who it’s for is in the name.

This early version is designed for developers to test new features and designs in their apps, and to explore how new tools in the software could help improve them. It’s not designed for everyday use by consumers -- that version will come later.

The Android 14 logo.

Google has released the first Developer Preview version of Android 14 for Pixel devices, ahead of officially revealing the operating system to the public later this year. Before you go rushing off to download and install the software, Google makes it very clear that this is for developers and app testing only, and isn’t suitable for everyday use.

If you decide to install it anyway, some features may not be operational, and you may encounter various bugs. Still, it's an important and exciting next step into this year's big Android update.

OnePlus wants to tempt you back to Android tablets with the OnePlus Pad
The back of the OnePlus Pad tablet.

OnePlus has made an iPad Pro-bothering tablet called the OnePlus Pad, an 11.6-inch monster that expands the brand’s product line beyond its core phones and earbuds, joining other peripheral devices like the OnePlus Watch and OnePlus TV. It’s OnePlus’s first foray into the world of Android tablets, and it’s not taking the commitment lightly — providing plenty of tech to tempt you away from the Apple iPad Pro or Samsung Galaxy Tab S8.

The 11.6-inch screen has an unusual 7:5 aspect ratio (most iPad tablets have a 4:3 aspect ratio, for example), and an impressive 144Hz refresh rate, plus Dolby Vision certification. It’s compatible with OnePlus’s Stylo stylus (which comes in the box) and attaches to a keyboard or protective case accessory using magnets. The early press details state the keyboard comes with the OnePlus Pad, meaning you won’t have to buy anything extra to enjoy all its abilities.
