Adobe Comp CC is a new app for the iPad which Adobe Creative Cloud subscribers can download and use. Comp lets you create layouts on your iPad quickly and easily, allowing you to pull in assetts from your CC libraries, such as images, vector artwork and colour swatches. These layouts can then be pushed out to InDesign, Photoshop or Illustrator for completion on the more comprehensive desktop packages.
