The app is currently in beta and users can sign up for Adobe’s beta program to be involved with the project. While the app isn’t built for Chromebooks specifically in mind, an Adobe representative has confirmed that Chromebooks that are capable of handling Android apps should be able to handle Adobe’s offering.

Project Rush will also have social features embedded into the app to allow users to share their creations on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube. The app looks quite promising for Chrome OS, more than any other platform it will launch on. People often criticize the capabilities of Chromebooks when it comes to productivity apps, and Project Rush might give it the edge it needs for people to consider Google’s laptops over tablets or Windows/Mac OS laptops.
