Yesterday, Adobe prematurely launched its new Photoshop Touch app for the iPad 2, quickly pulling it amid claims that the official launch was scheduled for Monday, February 27.
The app has now returned to the App Store [direct link], where it is available for $9.99. As previously noted, the app is currently compatible only with the iPad 2 running iOS 5.

Combine images, apply professional effects, share results with friends and family through sites like Facebook, and more – all from the convenience of your iPad.
Adobe Photoshop Touch is the flagship app from a group of six tablet apps that Adobe announced last October. The company has been taking steps onto the iPad and other tablets with a series of applications, although they have obviously yet to match the capabilities of the desktop versions of the Adobe’s key software products.
Adobe’s initial goal for the iPad was to explore how the device might be used as an auxiliary input for the desktop version, but the company has broadened its scope to now include at least some of the dedicated image editing features from Photoshop in its latest apps.
Update: MacStories has a nice early review of the app.
