How do the touch applications count in regards to my activations.

Jul 5, 2012 3:49 PM

We currently run 2 Imacs using Creative Suite 5.5 at the same time. (1 licence on 2 macs) and have done so with CS4 and CS5 and now CS5.5.

 

We want to keep that licence going as is and are contemplating subscribing to another licence for Creative Cloud. So with this new licence agreement will it allow me to run on the 1 licence:  2 x macbookpros and 1 x Ipad only at the same time?? or can I use 2 x Ipads??

regards

Rod

    If you are upgrading your 5.5 to creative cloud and take the discount, then the answer would be no, as the license is being transferred to creative cloud. on the other hand, if you purchase creative cloud outright, at $50 per month, then you can keep your current installs.

    It is my understanding that you still get two seats for each creative cloud subscription.  You can install on as many computeres as you like. However only two activations at once. If you want to use on a third machine, you have to first deactive one of the previous machines.

    It is my understanding that per seat  means two machines, so you should be able to run to ipads as well on the second subscription. However when you say 5.5 subscription, do you mean 5.5 license? I'm not aware of any cloud subscription for the older versions.

    cool, enjoy the pad.

     

    oh, so your 5.5 is creative cloud? then you're best bet is to download cs6 on that account, then get another adobe id and another creative cloud license for the ipad's, that way you have 4 seats

    just to be clear, it's 2 seats or activations now as they call it, per subscription. an ipad would be considered a machine. so two ipads = two activations.

     

    virtually no difference between 5.5 v 6 in terms of workflow. just some new features that you could start integrating once you know of them.

    I believe I was able to branch this discussion away from the larger discussion regarding how many activations you receive with your Creative Cloud membership.  Soundvisionguy has been mostly correct but I did want to provide an update on the touch applications for use with the iPad.  The touch applications are included as part of the Creative Cloud.  Please see the following:

     

    Customers who sign up for an annual membership to Creative Cloud or who buy a 12-month prepaid card at a retailer or online store will be eligible for a free month of Creative Cloud when they purchase and sign in from three qualifying Adobe Touch Apps from Google Play or the Apple App Store. This includes Adobe Collage, Adobe Debut, Adobe Ideas, Adobe Kuler, Photoshop Touch, and Adobe Proto.

     

     

    Customers who purchase an annual membership directly from Adobe and qualify for this offer will not be charged for the month of service following sign-in from their third Adobe Touch App. 

     

     

    Customers who purchase a 12-month prepaid card from a retailer or online store and qualify for this offer will have one month added to the duration of their membership.

     

     

    Creative Cloud members will be notified about their free month within 60 days of signing in to their third qualifying Adobe Touch App

     

    This information can be found in http://www.adobe.com/products/touchapps/faq.html.

     

    Also the Touch Applications do not count towards your licenses for using Creative Cloud.  You are still able to use the Creative Cloud on any two computers whether it be Mac or Windows.

    Will Apple puts a limit by Apple ID.  I believe their current limit on the amount of devices which can have an app installed per Apple ID is 5.

    I just read through this thread. Licensing for upgrades in relation to Creative Cloud is similiar as upgrades for other products. You still own the prior version and can still use it, however, you must it on the same two computers the the product you are upgrading from and you can't sell the previous version (version you are upgrading from).

     

    Also, you can't run standard desktop products on an iPad, only apps that were designed to run on the tablet like the touch apps. The number of apps that can run the touch apps is different than desktop apps, like Jeff describes, this is a limit set by Apple.
