Hello, I'm evaluating the purchasing of the licence for Cloud. But I saw that it contains plenty of APP and I'm not sure if I could install instead some separate few app that I will use more frequently.
The sense of the cloud is because it will work online? Only online? There will be some limitation working locally as some usual app installation? Can you give me some quick description of the added value of cloud versus some other partial installations? I see that too much info exist and they are very dispersive to take a quick decision on the right purchasing. Thanks a lot
cc subscription apps are installed on your computer.
you need to be connected to the internet (specifically adobe.com) to install adobe apps, and periodically to confirm your subscription (occurs in the background).
specifically, you need to connect to adobe.com once every 30 (montly paid subscription) or 99 (prepaid annual subscriptions) days (and again, this occurs in the background). ie, you do not always need to be connected to adobe.com to use your subscription apps.
because the all apps plan is less expensive than a few single app plans, i believe, most of us with all apps plans only install and use 4 to 10 apps.
it's important to note that the free trial automatically becomes a paid subscription unless you explicitly cancel*.
it's important to note that cancelling an annual plan (whether paid monthly or prepaid) before the end of the contract results in a financial penalty (=1/2 the cost of the remaining contract months)**.
Don't be tricked by the "Cloud" name. It's just a name chosen for marketing, because Adobe thought it was exciting. The apps are installed locally, and used just like other apps. But you need to be online regularly so the subscription can be checked. There is no "partial installation" that is different.
Before you buy a 12 month subscription, get a 7 day free trial. It's not enough time to evaluate all the apps & services, but it will give you some idea of what you're getting. Black Friday deals end Nov 25th.
