Our App Business section is brought to you by MacPaw, maker of proven Mac apps.
When you’re developing Mac apps, success can sometimes seem self-defeating. The better job you do, the less your customers need to buy subsequent versions of your app. Your job then shifts to marketing and an endless quest to acquire new customers in order to keep cash flowing in. Meanwhile, those who use a subscription business model for their software can easily enjoy that sweet, sweet recurring revenue.
We’re breaking off a brand new week, and as usual we’ve got a bunch of brand new deals. This round, we’ve got a portable VPN portal, a year of Adobe Creative Cloud with comprehensive lessons, an uber-classy iPhone wallet, and more. Take a look:
Content creators of all types and stripes use Adobe products, whether they know it or not. From Photoshop, Premiere and Indesign to Flash and Acrobat, Adobe underpins everything from photography and video to web design and digital documents. All of the above is wrapped up in Adobe’s Creative Cloud, and now’s your chance to get access to the whole shebang for a full five years, at no cost.
If you use a computer to make content, you’re going to be working with Adobe. The company’s software is key to everything from photography and video editing to website design and digital document drafting. And all these powerful programs are contained within Adobe’s Creative Cloud suite.
The way we use technology to communicate is transforming, and design is changing right along with it. Being caught up with the tools and techniques of web, visual and interactive design is key to being effective in the field of technology, which makes these deals especially exciting and useful.
Knowledge of Photoshop is one of the most commonly sought skills in digital media, but let’s face it — Adobe’s powerful industry standard image editing software can be a bit intimidating. That is, until you get a grip on the basics of how it works, which is exactly what the ‘Train Simple’ Adobe Photoshop Bundle offers. Over the course of 8 lessons, you’ll get a stem-to-stern tour of the concepts, functions and tools of Photoshop. It’s a deal that’s back by popular demand for a limited time and for just $55 at Cult of Mac Deals.
Remember Picturelife? It was one of our top picks for online photo storage when Everpix bit it, and now it has been upgraded to version 3.0. The highlights are a new $15 per month unlimited plan, which is really truly unlimited and can be shared with up to three other family members, plus an all-new, redesigned iOS app.
