To focus our efforts on capabilities that are most valuable to our customers, we sometimes discontinue active development of a product. Often, the core functionalities of these products are available in other Adobe tools.

As a Creative Cloud member, you can still download and install Creative Cloud apps that are no longer being developed. We’ll continue to provide security updates and bug fixes as necessary.


Only Creative Cloud subscribers with a paid All Apps membership are entitled to download and install apps no longer in development. Such apps aren't available to users with a trial membership.
