Hi

 

i just got LRM mobile on my iPhone and iPad and I wonder about a few things :

- if I subscribe premium feature on iPhone will I also get them on iPad ? Or should I pay twice ? 
- will I get LR on my Mac ? Web ?

- why does premium feature cost more on iPad (5,49/month) vs iPhone (4,99/month) (French market)

 

thanks

Hello @eStorm626 

If you subscribe on iPhone, or iPad, or Android, your susbcription works on any mobile phone or tablet device, and also Lightroom Web (lightroom.adobe.com). 

 

However, this mobile-only subcription does not include Lightroom for Windows or Mac.  If you need Lightroom on Windows or Mac, or you need more than 100 GB of storage from the Mobile plan, then you can subscribe from inside the LR desktop app or from www.adobe.com.  The desktop subscription includes mobile premium service, and comes with 10X the storage (1 TB) for only 2X the price of the mobile-only plan.  

 

Regarding price differences...   Are you seeing the different prices in the Appstore listing, or actually on the purchase screen in the app?  While I wait for your reply, I will look into why this may be happening.  Adobe does sometimes test different prices, and users in the same region might see different plans and prices offered in the app.  I'd simply subscribe on the cheaper option available.

Hi

Thanks for the precise answer.

Actually, I see on the purchasing screen within the LRM app on iPhone 4,99€ monthly plan with 7 days of free test period, whereas on iPad I see 2 options : 5,49€ Monthly and no free test period or 59,99€ Annual plan with 7 days free usage. The annual plan is equivalent in price to the iPhone monthly fee calculated annually.

To be honest, I don’t know yet what I will need in terms of cloud storage. I was a Lightroom classic user back in time when it was sold as a perpetual license and no cloud storage at all… now, the choice is quite tricky with all those subscriptions possibilities, devices and even LR iterations.

To be honest 11,99€ Monthly for one hobby tool is quite a lot even if I would use all the possibilities of the plan.

Secondary question : Does Adobe usually offer discounts on plans or is it something that never happens ?

Hopefully one of these options is good for you.  

Regarding occassional discounts, I don't recall seeing this happen.  Occasionally, Lightroom Mobile will price-test a cheaper 40 GB mobile-only plan, but this isn't available all the time, and is not available in all regions.
