This week MAX attendees will be getting an email from the MAX team on how to claim their first free MAX 2011 gift that will allow you to create an iPad app using Adobe Digital Publishing Suite, Single Edition. So be sure to check your in box!
We also want to update you on the complimentary Adobe Creative Cloud membership each attendee has coming their way in the first half of 2012. This membership provides you with a comprehensive set of tools including the full offering of Adobe Creative Suite desktop applications, the six Adobe Touch Apps announced at MAX, and additional applications, services, and inspiring community features.
There has been a lot of buzz about the very recently released Adobe Touch Apps that were announced at MAX. While these Touch Apps will be part of your Adobe Creative Cloud membership, they are also being sold separately. So, if you can't wait for your complimentary Adobe Creative Cloud membership and want to access any of the six Adobe Touch Apps for creativity now, they are available for download via the Android Market (each priced at $9.99USD). The availability of Touch Apps for the iPad will be announced at a later date.
Check out this FAQ for more information on what will be in your complimentary Adobe Creative Cloud membership--CS desktop apps, the Adobe Touch Apps, and more.
As a MAX attendee, you will receive a complimentary year of an Adobe Creative Cloud membership.* The membership will start in early 2012 as soon as the Adobe Creative Cloud offering is available.
Your Adobe Creative Cloud membership will provide you with a wide array of creative applications, services, and community features, plus access to the latest versions of these components as soon as they are released, so your creative tools will always be up-to-date.
Applications: Access to the latest versions of Adobe Creative Suite desktop applications—including industry-leading desktop tools such as Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, Premiere Pro, After Effects and more. The applications are downloaded onto your desktop and do not require ongoing Internet access to use.
You’ll also get new tools such as Adobe Edge, Adobe Muse (code name), and the Adobe Touch apps.
Services: Access to key Adobe Digital Publishing Suite technologies, a tier of Business Catalyst and new design services like cloud-based fonts for website design.
Community: Access to capabilities that encourage creative professionals to present and share their work and ideas with peers around the world and a forum for feedback and inspiration that will foster connections between creative people.
We will provide more details about your Adobe Creative Cloud membership in the months to come. Until then, learn more about the Adobe Creative Cloud >
This is what I got :
Ques: Are Touch Apps included in the annual Creative Cloud Membership?
Ans: Our intention is to have Touch Apps included in the annual membership. However we use iOS App Store and Google Play to deliver this software and unfortunately the infrastructures of the app marketplaces were not built to deliver subscription-based software suites that work across desktop, tablet and mobile devices. This is not that surprising, given that Adobe is doing something unique with Creative Cloud.
The Touch Apps integrate seamlessly with all aspects of Creative Cloud but for now they must be purchased separately through app marketplaces. Our goal is to work with the app marketplaces to enable Touch Apps to be purchased separately, or as part of Creative Cloud Membership, over time. Until that time, Adobe Creative Cloud members on the annual plan will receive a free month of membership, a $49.99 value, with the purchase of three qualifying Adobe Touch Apps -- about a $30 value.
Actually, its probably way more than $600. But honestly, that's not the point I am trying to make. I am not disappointed in the "deal" I was given. I'm actually real excited about it and have been thankful for it for months now. But, I am disappointed in Adobe for saying one thing and then delivering another with no mention of it. Thats not what I am use to from Adobe. That is why I spend thousands of dollars on software and conferences each year ... because they always deliver something special and more than you expect.
And in my specific case ... I would have gotten CS6 from work anyways and have been using the tablet much more in my workflow. I was holding off on PS Touch and the other apps until this offer came through.
Hi there and apologies for the confusion. We did not mean to leave you hanging with no explanation. At the time of the conference in October and in subsequent months, the MAX team thought the Touch Apps would be a part of the Creative Cloud that's why the blog posts you reference (written by me, above) include it. We apologize for any confusion, but we hope you enjoy your complimentary access to Adobe Creative Cloud and the latest Adobe Creative Suite 6 software.
Hi Sergio - apologies for the delay in getting back to you. I will look into this today! You should have received an email sent to the address that you used to register for MAX. Check that account and your spam filter and in the meantime, I'll look into what happened on our end. Thanks...
