Preview CC is no longer available for download or actively maintained as of October 2017.

Adobe Preview CC is a Photoshop companion iOS app that lets you preview designs in real-time as you edit them in Photoshop. Using Preview CC, you can make sure designs appear on actual devices exactly how you want them to appear. Preview CC speeds up the design process and reduces the time required to test on multiple screen sizes.
If you have a document with artboards, Device Preview attempts to show you the correct artboard by matching the size and position of the artboard with the size of the connected device.

Yes, you can swipe to navigate and preview different artboards. Preview CC lets you swipe through artboards based on the width. For example, if you have a PSD that has artboards for different iOS sizes, and you connect an iPhone 5, Preview CC will automatically display the first iPhone 5 artboard. You can also select a specific artboard from the app's Nav menu and navigate through the artboards that match the width of the selected one.
