WTF?

Why?

I just don't get this. Why on earth would I want to use their cloud service in the first place and if I did why on earth would I want to do it on a mobile device?

Some things are ideal to chuck on a tablet, others are just plain stupid... and I'll stop there for fear of igniting the ever vociferous slab fondlers who would have us believe the world can be run from these things.

Apples to oranges, qwertyuiop.

Aviary is good* for simple photo editing - a crop or rotate of a snap you've taken with your phone. It is not in the same league as taking photos with a SLR and editing them with Photoshop and Lightroom.

* Or at least was until Adobe gets their mits on it.

If I had my way

I'd stuff Creative Cloud in a sack and toss the sack in a river and hurl the river into space. Along with all other software as a service such as Office 365. The last thing I want to do is pay a fee the rest of my life to use a product.
