I understand I can buy more than 1 SE license.
Which license do I need?
I'm looking to create publications for no more than 5 clients, each would have a quartly publication. Making that a total of 20 publcations.
I'll also have clients that may want a one off publication.
In total all publications will not have more than 6,000 downloads.
They would need to be available for either free or paid perhaps even a subscription in Apple's News Stand.
Would I need a Apple dev paid membership for this?
Am I correct in thinking that if there were 6,000 downloads in total, the cost would be $0.30 X 6,000 = $1,800?
If the same account holder downloads the same publication multiple times is there a charge everytime?
Newsstand requires a subscription which eliminates Single Edition.
Single Edition apps will appear in the app store only.
AFAIK, if you want to act as an agency you’re going to need to contact Adobe and I do not believe they’re going to say yes without a compelling reason.
Each of those clients will need their own Apple account and Adobe account if they want to do subscriptions.
The other thought is to simply produce single editions and pull the old versions quarterly.
In that case am I correct in thinking that there is no licensing model for design agencies who design and print for other companies?
We currently design, print and distribute magazines for local and national companies that are too small or don't have the budget to buy the current licensing that Adobe has to offer.
I'm a little confused about my clients needing their own Apple account, currently if we produce an app for a client it would be uploaded under our Apple Dev account, but would still have the clients branding on the app its self.
So could I not just upload multiple magazine subscriptions under my companies account?
With regards to Single Editions that could work. Is there a download limit to SE licensing if there is no charge i.e. ($0.30)?
I would never allow anyone to publish my work with their own developer account nor would I publish someone else’s work with mine.. What if you stop paying Apple?
The Apple Developer account is $99/year.
There is no limit to Single Edition apps.
You make a fair point about the apple dev licensing.
Going back to licensing.
How would Conde Nast Digital's licensing work then? They make Wired Magazine, GQ Magazine and The World of Interiors to name a few, does that mean they have a seperate license for each magazine? Say the Professional Edition?
Keeping in Mind your requirements, I would suggest you go in for DPS Professional Edition. While using DPS Pro, you may create 5 Multi issue apps for your 5 clients and then publish their content (All Issues) to the app using separate application id's. You may also enable newsstand using DPS Professional Edition. Also there is a certain amount of free folio downloads that you get with Professional edition for the first year.
Yes, so 5 different Apps with 4 issues each. Application id is a term that you'll get to know as you use DPS, it is the adobe id from which you publish your content using Folio Producer. When using Professional or Enterprise accounts, you create separate Application id's for separate apps and then upload your content/publish your content to and from this id.
