Adobe Creative Cloud rolls out today: CS6 applications, storage and syncing from $50 per month
If you haven’t already upgraded to CS6, then maybe Adobe can entice you to take the “radical” next step of signing up to its cloud service, which starts today in 36 countries priced at $50 per month on an annual contract, or $75 per month for the non-committal. Will it be worth the potatoes? That depends on whether you’re the type of person who prefers to pay $2,600 upfront for a perpetual license, or alternatively make use of subscription-based access to online install files, HTML5 apps like Adobe Muse 1.0 (for code-free HTML design) and Adobe Edge preview (for animations and interactive content), plus integration with Adobe’s Touch Apps for iOS and Android tablets. You’d also get that other big cloudy offering: 20GB of online storage for easy sharing, viewing and syncing of all your hard work. Finally, if you’re using an older version of Creative Suite, then Adobe’s offering you a pretty hefty introductory discount to entice you onto the slippery upgrade slope. Check out the press release for further price info, or just look up in the sky.
