I have decided to purchase the photoshop touch for my phone. I'm aware that I need to buy it on the play store by paying through the Google wallet. It is all good with me until this point. Now my doubt is if I need an additional membership to anything, such as the creative cloud? Is it mandatory? Or can I simply work on the photoshop touch app after buying it without having to pay for any charges or buying a membership?
access to the creative cloud is included with the app, no additional fees are required beyond the purchasing price listed on the Google play and Apple app stores.
the creative cloud is also not mandatory, you only need it if you want to access an editable version(with layers) on a different device because local export options "flatten" the image.
