Adobe has launched their new Creative Cloud service. Not only does Adobe allow you to get your newest software from the Creative Cloud, it also allows you to rent your software. Reducing replacement costs and allowing you to upsize the number of licenses in case of temporary peaks in your workload.
Adobe’s Creative Cloud is formed around the new Creative Suite 6 (CS6) tools that Adobe has launched with the Creative Cloud. Next to new versions of existing CS5 software, Adobe also introduced Adobe Muse and Adobe Edge. Two tools for creating and maintaining HTML5 projects. This brings the total number of tools one has available in the Creative Cloud to 14. Adobe also provides users with 20GB of cloud storage.
Another interesting bit for mobile developers is the possibility to deliver Android and iOS apps directly to their respective markets without Apple’s of Google’s own interfaces interfering in your workflow.
Members of the creative cloud will also gain access to the newest CS suite functions as they arrive while ‘normal’ software buyers would have to wait for major upgrades on their products.
Creative Cloud memberships cost €49,99 a month based on a 12-month subscription. Monhtly subscriptions go for €79,99. If you already own any CS product from 3 onward, you get a discount on the Creative Cloud. Access will then set you back €29,99 a month.
