Adobe’s Creative Cloud Desktop App Is Now More Than Just an App Updater

Posted on October 11, 2019 by Mehedi Hassan in Cloud with 2 Comments

Adobe’s Creative Cloud desktop app has long been known as something that just sits on your taskbar and updates your apps. That is changing today, with a brand new Creative Cloud app the company has started to rollout to users on Windows and Mac.

The new Creative Cloud app is all about bringing all the different features of Creative Cloud together to one app. Instead of just focusing on updating your apps, the new Creative Cloud app works much like its web companion, showing you details about your subscription, your apps, etc.

Adobe’s new Creative Cloud app will let you browse all the different apps by platform or category. You will be able to see what apps are part of your subscription, and even download older versions of certain apps if you need. The app listings are also more detailed now, with tutorials that help you get started and get tips on how to use the apps.

The new app also brings Creative Cloud’s other features, like resources from Stock, Fonts, and Behance into the app — letting you browse and use a ton of creative content without the need to open up your browser. Adobe has also included built-in integration for Creative Cloud libraries, which means you can create new libraries, browse your existing ones, or get public libraries all from the new app. It’s a really major update for an app that was mostly used for updating apps like Photoshop for a very long time.
