Adobe Removing Photoshop Sketch and Illustrator Draw From App Store in July
Adobe this week reminded customers that its Photoshop Sketch and Illustrator Draw apps will no longer be available for download on iOS and Android starting July 19. Adobe plans to stop supporting the apps for existing users on January 10, 2022.
In a support document, Adobe said users can easily migrate to its Fresco app, which combines many Photoshop Sketch and Illustrator Draw drawing and painting tools. All projects created in Illustrator Draw and Photoshop Sketch will be automatically migrated to Fresco after a user signs into the app with their Adobe ID email address.
Existing users can continue to use Photoshop Sketch and Illustrator Draw after July 19, with all artwork and projects remaining available, but Adobe said it will not add any new features or updates to the apps once they are discontinued.
Adobe Fresco first launched on the iPad in 2019 and expanded to the iPhone last year. The app is free on the App Store, with premium features available for $9.99.

Autodesk stands head and shoulders above them all though in terms of rorting their customer.
I am trying to escape MS, Adobe and Autodesk, and can see the way, but it is very difficult in a professional world where these companies dominate.
Now if only I could find a good grid-based vector drawing app for iPad so I can build laser cutting plans….
The all time best one is Autodesk Revit.
no older version can open a new version model. EG a person using Revit 2020 cannot open a model completed in 2021. They have been doing this for years, hence my previous comment of Autodesk being the biggest rort of all software. To use full Revit it is about $4k a year, and you have to keep paying this, as you cannot run the app without the subscription.
Add on top the super minor incremental changes they make per release, but force you into the upgrade pattern.
I also know for a fact they used to give away the licences to get users hooked.
Sounds like a drug and now we are all hooked and slaves to the Autodesk dealers.
