Availability and pricing
These new tools and services are available as part of Adobe's Creative Cloud free introductory membership and its paid memberships.
After an introductory period (for which an end date has yet to be set), Edge Animate will be priced at $499 for a perpetual license, $15 per month for a standalone subscription, or included in a paid membership to Creative Cloud.
While Creative Cloud always had and still offers a free 30-day trial membership, the Edge Animate Tools & Services do not expire after 30 days. Edge Animate users will have their free membership extended into what is called a Starter Creative Cloud plan, and thus get a free perpetual license to Edge Animate (a $499 value) and ongoing basic licenses to the other tools and services as part of this free membership. They also get the service's regular file syncing, file sharing, storage, and CS6 free tryout features.
Additional capacity for Edge Inspect and PhoneGap Build is available via standalone subscriptions priced at $10 per month each. Typekit paid plans include additional websites, fonts, and page views that are available for between $25 and $99 per year. A $50 per year Portfolio Plan is included in the paid membership to Creative Cloud.
Paying members can also download and install all Creative Suite 6 desktop applications, and applications such as Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and Adobe Muse. Paid membership to Creative Cloud for individuals is $50 per month based on an annual membership and $75 per month for a month-to-month membership. Pricing for education customers and customers who upgrade from Creative Suite 3 and later is $30 per month.
