I’m honestly surprised at how limited PS on a iPad Pro is. No point in even using. I’m canceling my subscription. Procreate sketchbook or and I hate to say it Affinity photo are better options.

Adding a smudge tool would be great, or maybe even a mixer brush or blur tool. I feel that especially as someone who uses photoshop to paint, the mobile version has most of the things I need except for the smudge tool and filters like brightness/contrast, so I feel like a smudge tool (and also importing brushes) would make significant improvements for the current app.

Yeah I need the smudge tool for digital painting. Hope this is coming soon.

I completely agree. The smudge tool in PS is key for digital painting. Very disappointing after buying an iPad Pro and the Adobe creative package to find so little in the clunky PS toolkit, with meager options in the other mobile apps that don’t make up the difference. The whole point was to get away from the desktop and take my painting and design with me, not leave all the good tools behind. I’ve been using Adobe products since the 1990s and I feel I got data-minded and dumped with a bunch of stiff, formulaic, milktoast video game tools more than anything else. Pretty heartbreaking. I have better freeware. Hope this improves quickly, feels very rushed to market.

I agree with Brian’s disappointment. The lack of some “basic” tools like smudge and options like import brushes is startling. I am hopeful some of these will come soon. I use Photoshop for painting and creating collages.

I bought an iPad Pro, a pen and a keyboard, then subscribed to adobe, based on the promise that this was photoshop on the iPad, not photoshop for the iPad. 

Over a thousand pounds I spent, instead of getting an old iMac, and I had to look my coworkers in the eye and explain why I couldn’t produce images. It’s been the most awful year for many reasons but this has not helped.

Download the app “Affinity Pro” (costs $10) for the iPad. It takes a little getting used to, however it has all the tools photoshop has AND more. I’ve used it for many projects this last year and am impressed. It accepts ALL *.psd files as well. Just allow yourself time to learn it, once you do you will be much happier with it than the very poorly designed photoshop for iPad.

Adding a smudge tool would be a great way for artists to blend colors together and allow them to digitally paint.

Yes yes yes! I am just getting into digital painting ad was super excited to download Photoshop for IPad... only to see that smudge tool is not there. Hopefully adding this does not require a lot and will be in an update very soon!

Blur/Smudge tool would be handy for my photo editing as well.

Please raise the priority of adding smudge tool to Photoshop mobile on ipad! Artists really miss it.

Photoshop for ipad is unusable for many of us digital artists without a smudge tool. I'd happily switch to PS from Procreate, but not without a smudge tool.

It's been a year since I've posted, and this same tool has been at the top of many people's list.  Welcome to the waiting club.  

If the palm rejection feature wasn't so absolutely perfect compared to so many other programs, I don't think I'd be using this program any more.

Literally just bought a brand new iPad Pro and pencil to use strictly for smudge painting. Lol. Wtf. I knew the iPad version would be “slimmer”, but the smudge tool is such a basic editing tool, I was 99% sure the iPad version would have it. Now I’ve found this board with posts about this that are two years old. I’m so frustrated right now.
