Great App. Just one issue! It works great and I love using it for my work. The only thing is that the android notification bar on top of my Galaxy Note 4 doesn't vanish when using the app and therefore partially blocks some of the image. I'll gladly give 5 stars once this issue is resolved. (Also it'd be SUPER awesome if you could 'fit to width' and have the option to scroll down for images that have a very large height compared to their width!).

Ian Hallworth

Just the ticket Displays the active Photoshop document on your android phone with ease. Updates to your design are refreshed quickly. I don't need any more functions than that.

Olga Mikhailenko

Could be a good tool, but it doesn't work. Nothing happens after establishing a connection

Kevin D'Mello

A really handy tool for UI design, but.. The app has missed out on one feature though - scrollview. It displays a tall image as a fit-to-width overview, that cannot be zoomed into.

Guilherme Andrade Dourado

Great! My daily use app at work. Can I make a request? Would be perfect to me if it could make like a scrollview on an image, like putting a 1080p x 3000p image and scroll it vertically.

Pramodh Atipamula

Awesome app Really awesome app. Designing team must have this app. Only this is image quality is low when previewing

Chloe Lee

Doesn't work anymore It used to work perfectly now after established connection nothing showed up!!! Pls fix this problem soon life depends on it

Pete Sutupov

Works perfectly, but I have noticed weird color and gradient behavior on my phone. After making a screenshot and opening it in PS, I found that the image Pixl Preview actually displays is a heavily compressed JPEG copy of what is on my desktop screen. And there seems to be no setting over the PS > phone picture quality. Could you give me any info / updates on this? It would be really cool to transmit the actual non-compressed data from Photoshop to my phone, JPEG has serious issues in some particular cases.

Ásgeir Vísir

I'm excited about the product But unfortunately it does not work. I only see a "Connection established". But hopefully that will be fixed. Skala Preview is driving me crazy

Dave at Novoda

Fast and solid Finally a worthy contender to Skala Preview on iOS. The Android version of Skala Preview really falls short of the iOS one and this is brilliant. I love the fact that you can have a full image below the software buttons that shows up for designing immersive mode screens.

arul prabakaran

Finally got what I need I was just looking alternative for skala preview in windows, but answer I got in google is no.. does this mean no designer uses windows? Finally you guys gave opportunity for windows user to make better ui testing before the launch.. I was happy with it.. but I was limited to give only 5 stars, vary sad..

Øivind Rosvold

Very helpful app A couple of things i would like in future updates is. (and you most likely have these in mind anyway ;) Zoom. Be able to slide to other tabs/images open in Photoshop. Show/hide and edit notes (even if the info cannot be sent back to Photoshop). On/off for each layer, only shown as boxes on the side, if possible. This will hide/show a layer in Photoshop and then resend the image to the device. Ablitiy to save image on screen to the device as original, jpg, png. This app will save a lot of forests! Great job, keep up the good work!

ET Galim

Works great Had some problems with Skala (my network at home is weirdly configured) and gave Pixl a try. Works great! And fast!

Fanpics App

Nice app but hangs up Can't get past 'connection established' I'd happily pay good money for one of these preview apps to work more smoothly on android.

Daniel Barnard

Great! I had no idea something like this would be so useful. Awesome idea. I can see myself using this app every time I use photoshop from now on.

Nei Blancas

Awesome app! ?? This app is great perhaps for graphic designers or artists to let their clients view how they work. Good for freelancer designers/artists too! Must have app. Please promise that there's more to come! ?

Teodor Anthony

Thank you, but... I want to zoom in/out but can't. Can you add a feature to zoom in/out. But everything works perfect here thank you! ?

Danilo Blum

Need some features Great idea and work! Only need some features like 1:1 resolution, scroll to layout and hide the notification and nav bars.

James Jun

Stable, but the quality could be better. The app itself is beautiful and works well, with an easy setup process. The only thing is, the images sent to the device are compressed (probably due to either the speed benefit or the limitations of Photoshop Remote Connections). When previewing mockups, the loss of sharpness and fidelity is unacceptable. In terms of that, Skala Preview is still king, with pixel-perfect uncompressed previews.

al redpath

Awesome, does what is says on the box Simple to set up, clean easy to use interface and works perfectly as described. The send image to Photoshop option is incredibly useful.

shreyas dm

Perfect I love this app! This is the kind of app that I was looking for! :) Now I can design my personal stuff even in Windows machine :) Perfect 5 stars! :D

Bryan Rieger

Connection established, and nothing more… Nothing actually displays on my device after completing the remote connection with Photoshop CC.

tim paul

This looks awesome..... but doesnt work. Am running kitkat / nexus5 and this app detects the photoshop remote session just fine, but hangs on the white "connection established" screen. Very disappointing. Will give this 5 stars just as soon as the developer makes this app work once again!

Martin Boerma

Not working Tried different networks and different devices. All latest Android/ latest PS (cc2014).

Walmyr Carvalho

Just works. If you're an Android designers, install it now! Awesome work, it works great and it's really easy to use, actually. Kudos for the developers!

Philip Langley

Nice that you don't have to run an app on the desktop... ...but it lacks zoom. Zoom to width would be perfect (something Skala also lacks) because I design long, narrow mobile sites.

Shahzad Riaz

Nice but needs improvements should not display the top status bar for any resolution. should be able to slide right left for multiple files opened in Photoshop. preview speed needs to be improve.

Jr. O.

Great app - Except for one issue. Images re size on the screen. Give an option on settings to truncate width so page can be scrollable. This is very crucial!!!!. Good work

Michel Georges

it's just awesome !! it's amazing this app really does it ... but i have a request of my own and i believe others will want it too .. make the app connect to illustrator too .. it would be amazing !

Jamie Elliott

Great app Only thing that I can think it really could use is an ability to zoom in.

tzvika migael

Great!!! Now can you make one for illustrator

Hazem AbuMostafa

Where was this long time ago?!

Bryan Maniotakis

Daily use I've been using similar apps for iOS for years, but the simplicity and ease of use of this blows them all out of the water.

Øyvind Nordbø

Used to work really great. Sadly, a frozen "Connection established" screen is all I see nowadays. Nexus 4, Android v4.4.2

Rob Hayes

Whoops, my Firewall is, uh, blocking this. Would use if I could but I can't.

Ajinkya Bhagwat

Every designer should try. For photoshop purpose.

Alexander Vinogradov

Need to hide system Statusbar Please hide top system statusbar, it overlays image.

Ricardo Amaral

Incredibly useful for app layout previews. Strongly recommend.

Kirill Egorov

Good app! Good app, but the quality of preview image on mobile device is not high (checked the option in settings, but seems that it doesn't work)

João Ferreira

"Connection established" looks amazing… and that's all folks. Nothing shows on the screen.

Jo Conlon

Reliable and fast I initially couldn't get past the 'Established connection' window. I emailed the developer who got back to me straight away: "Photoshop fails to send the image if there's any kind of dialog open" - Remote connection, settings window, color picker, text tool active etc after that no problems at all. This app is far more reliable than Skala Preview which works about 5% of the time. Again, if the sys bar could be hidden and scrolling enabled it would be perfect. Thank you.

Alexander Protikhin

Take a look ps play for ios Please fit width not height. So designer could create long screens and scroll them as real application. Ps play for IOS do so.

Tony O'Donohoe

Nice app but bit of an oversight not allowing scrollview. It would be much better if designs could fit to width rather than height and thus allow scrolling. Check out Ps Play's functionality on iOS.

Nikolay Kuchkarov

It crash my photoshop when connected to my watch.

Prashant Tyagi

I am using this app in office...there it works well and connect easily. But at home it is not connected with my laptop. After doing all the shows "Could not connect and please check connectivity settings."

Rahul Chakraborty

Minor tweaks needed This app is really great. But I would rate it 5 stars if few minor features were added. Firstly, a width-fit support with Scrollable view is needed. Its of immense use for all Interface designers out there. Secondly, when using artboards, the app displays all the artboards together,.. Instead of doing this, the app could display only those artboards which are active in Photoshop. This is another thing that will help people working in the latest PS CC versions alot.

Samir Patnaik

I love it. This app is brilliant. Photoshop for WIndows mirrors fabulously on my Xiaomi Redmi 2 Prime. It super responsive and too easy to set up. Great! Great! Great work WaffleWare. Feels like future is here.

Khalid Hasan Zibon

Really Great App, but I'd be happier if could show preview images in HIGH QUALITY. I am not sure if it just happens to me, but I'd really appreciate if you guys fixed this issue :) Also scrollable view would be good. Thanks for such a great app!

mishan randika

Great tool for designers Fit screen option should have two options for width and height separately. So then long images can be scrollable like a real app. Hope this feature will include in later versions.

Dheeraj Shetty

Great app, but App works very well, but doesn't support multiple artboards, hope that is implemented in the future.

Christian Emilsson

Clean, fast, works Would love scroll support, as in make the width 100% of the screen and make the hight go outside the screen. 5 stars when that works. It doesn't hide notification bar anymore with marshmallow :(

Iosif Simon

Amazing! I sooooo needed this! BRILLIANT! Images not full quality but can t complain.

Anurag Chawade

Connection Established??? I add a connection as per the steps, after it says connection established but I don't see anything happening after that. Need a solution.

Jon Guerra Fernandez

Ok app, when it works its amazing,, however a lot of the time, it doesn't. It just shows: blank screen with "connection established". Takes a lot of close photoshop.. re open again... close app on device... re open... and when you're just about to delete it and never use it again... it begins to work again....

Sam Nalty

App is great, would be fantastic if it supported artboards in CC 2015 the way Adobe's new preview app for iOS does.

Nitish Upadhyay

Adding zoom functionality wd b great..The app some time doesn't connect..wonder why..I tried clearing cache memory ..even data..still not working..I ve rechecked the remote option in Photoshop..even changing the password..doesn't seem to is not working..please fix this issue...

Luca Francesco Rossi

impossible to use airboard and scrolling functionalities: it will just show the entire artwork leaving you without the option to zoom in.

Tim Torres

Can't zoom in and doesn't fill the width of the screen with long documents... I don't understand why you would even release an app that can't do this.

Surendra Joshi

Time saver This is awesome as it saves a lot of time and make things hassle free.

adeel raza

Amazing app Please make the iOS version of this app also

Giedrius Butkus

no support for new adobe artboards need support for new artboards funcionality in adobe cc

Dan Smallman

Works well Simple to set up and no need for extra software on your Mac. One little bug, moving between history states doesn't seem to update the image in the app

Vinayak Bongarge

Faster way to design apps loved it.. Not working with Photoshop CC 2015 with proxy server

Kunal Shukla

It should have the option to show the image by scaling to width and scrollable vertically. Otherwise of no use.

Vishal Hari

Thumps up! This app is soo cool! It helps me see my designs live on my mobile and make the right changes and it works like a charm !!

Brent Matthews

Goog good good Works just like you want it to...

Khalid Hasan Zibon

✋ Updated: Please READ!!! ✋ I can't thank you enough for how it's helping me to design mobile apps, just one more feature request: Please add scroll view! When I am designing mobile version of websites I need to see the actual preview size. So width should fit the screen but height should be scrollable! Please add this feature in next update. Thanks. ?

Andrei Avram

I have use this app before and works ok. Now doesn't, I just installed again and rich the point when tell me that Connection is establish and then nothing :( Can you tell me what can be the problem?

suresh kumar

Sketch support? It would be great if I can use this app with sketch. Because there is no tool that support android mirror for sketch application. Can I expect it?

Natash Aston

Not able to hide the default green status bar of the app. Rectify this, n the rest KUDOS

Algirdas Armonavičius

Everything would be great but... I am designing app/m.version and I need the width to fit not the height.. So at this moment this app is Just OK. Waiting for update :)

Heinrich Bezuidenhout

Loved it. But it doesn't connect anymore, just hangs on 'Connection established'

Amit Saxena

Must have app Its a great app for all the ui designers out there but it lacks the main thing, scrollable view of the designs especially mobile layouts. Please add this feature also try to add zoom feature. Thanks a ton for this lovely app. Would rate 5 of 5 after you update these two minor changes.

Cari Cheng

I've used it a lot, and it's simple and easy to set up and use. However I changed my phone and now I'm stuck in the "Connection Established" screen. I don't know what to do. Please help!

Roman Belyaev

Have installed application. Connection established and nothing :(

Adi Hayun

its no fit to screen!!! :( Although i checked "v" in the settings

Khalid Hasan Zibon

Muhammad Ihsan

It just connect for the first time. The next attempt is nothing and stuck in connection error page. Love the working one. Hopefully it can be normal again.

David C

Dave c Brilliant app! Complete game changer for me. I'm a photographer and it let's me see how every editing step in photoshop looks - instantly live on my android phone! Wish I found it sooner! A must have.

Ahmed Youssif

I love this app too match, I were going to buy an iPhone to preview my designs on phone but its help me to use my android.

Ahsan Idrisi

I have latest Google android OS and when i try to type IP address, the keyboard its shows have some disabled keys like for the "."

Haithem Abdul Mohdi

Will give 5 stars if there an option for the new "Artboard" feature. Also it would be great to add a "Share button". Thank you
