A full monthly membership costing $49.99 provides you with Creative Suite tools, Adobe Touch Apps and services, device syncing capabilities, plus new features, products and services as soon as they are released, as well as Lightroom 4 (once it exits beta) and new Muse and Edge web authoring tools. Kevin Lynch, chief technology officer at Adobe. explains:
“Adobe Creative Cloud reinvents creative expression by enabling a new generation of services for creativity and publishing, that embrace touch interaction to re-imagine how individuals interact with creative tools and build deeper social connections between creatives around the world,” – “The move to the Creative Cloud is a major component in the transformation of Adobe.”
The Creative Cloud monthly fee includes a license allowing you to download and install individual Creative Suite 6 apps on up to two different machines, when they’re released later this year.
For businesses a new volume based service is available for $70 a month per user. Other application included in the service are web-hosting service Business Catalyst, Typekit and Digital Publishing Suite that lets you create native iPad programs.
