It’s no secret that Photoshop for iPad is unfinished. A lot of fans have accepted that and are enjoying it for what it is. But others are not, and they’ve forced one Adobe chief to defend its current state.

There are some great graphics apps available for iPad. One which has been largely absent up until now? The proper full version of Adobe Photoshop.
