Helper apps and services
What are helper apps and services?
Helper apps and services are the ones that are included with desktop apps that you purchase for your organization. These can’t be purchased stand-alone and their deployment is as a utility. Most Creative Cloud applications include helper apps and services to support and enhance creative workflows. These include apps such as Adobe Media Encoder and Adobe Bridge & services like Fonts and Acrobat online tools.
Users gain access to helper apps when assigned to the associated purchased applications (sometimes referred to as Top-Level applications).
This document aims to provide guidance on which helper apps and services come with which plan (for example, Creative Cloud All Apps). Access to helper apps and services is ultimately governed by Adobe’s Terms of Service and additionally for ETLA customers by Product Specific Licensing Terms.
What are the plans that include helper apps and services?
Adobe’s inclusion of helper apps aims to be ample and inclusive across paid Adobe products. Since the inclusion of helper apps can be dynamic and dependent on negotiated agreements, there is no definitive mapping for which helper apps come with which Adobe apps, but the following guidance applies in most cases:
- Each installation of Adobe Media Encoder and Adobe Bridge consumes a license. The number of installations of AME or Adobe Bridge must not exceed the number of licenses purchased for the On-premise Software.
- All helper apps and services are available with any Creative Cloud All Apps license, except for K-12 EDU. No-services versions of Creative Cloud are limited to helper apps that don’t depend on cloud services (For example, Adobe Bridge and Adobe Media Encoder).
- All helper apps and services are available with any top-level Creative Cloud Single Apps license.
