The newly available Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 allows the user to create content on mobile devices including of course, the iPad. As the iPad amongst others does not support Flash, a whole bunch of HTML5 tools allow for content creation.

Also of note is the subscription-based pricing which is offered in 12-month plans or a month-to-month plan.
The new Creative Suite product lineup is headlined by Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 Master Collection, which includes, in a single package, all of Adobe’s industry-defining creative tools, such as Photoshop®, Illustrator®, InDesign, Acrobat®, Flash Builder Premium, Flash Catalyst®, Flash Professional, Dreamweaver®, Adobe Premiere® Pro and After Effects®. These products are available separately or as components of one or more of the five Creative Suite editions.
