A manager utility for Adobe applications

adobe application managerAdobe Application Manager is a helper app designed by Adobe to manage the installation and support of its products.

Those who have been using Adobe products for some time know that occasionally the latest updates or the apps themselves won’t download on a Mac. The Adobe Help Forums are full of queries regarding the issue. To eliminate the problem, it is recommended to use Adobe Application Manager.

The manager helps to download official Adobe apps directly from the developer’s server. Taking into consideration the fact that installation files for the majority of Adobe products weigh multiple gigabytes, it is necessary to ensure that unreliable Internet connection doesn’t disrupt the downloading process. Adobe Application Manager helps to fix errors that occur during app downloads.

The developers of Adobe Application Manager came out of their way to ensure that the utility can be used even by novice Mac owners. Therefore, it doesn’t boast advanced features and special functions. Instead, the manager has a slick interface, which can be intuitively understood by less experienced users who are looking for trial versions of Adobe software. For this reason, it is not possible to customize Adobe Application Manager in any way.

It can be frustrating to manually check for app updates. The task becomes especially bothersome if a Mac owner has multiple Adobe apps on their machine. Adobe Application Manager eliminates the necessity to perform manual updates by automatizing the process. Additionally, the utility can be used as a license manager for all Adobe apps. An installation file for the manager weighs 70.9MB.
