App Studio Pricing

What’s Included with QuarkXPress?

QuarkXPress 9.1 and later include features for creating App Studio issues as well as a Mac OS X application, App Studio Factory. You can download a 30-day Test Drive of QuarkXPress 9 and create and test iPad® apps and create and preview issues for free.

You only pay when you’re ready to publish your apps and issues. Just as importantly, there are no on-going financial commitments to Quark once your app and issue have been published.

What are the Costs?

There are 4 costs you should plan for when using App Studio to design and publish to the iPad (assuming you already own QuarkXPress 9.1 or later).

  • App Studio Factory App Template License
    A license to use a particular App Studio Factory app template. You can purchase app template licenses from the Quark Store or through a Quark Authorised Reseller.

    Note that if you use the App Studio Reader Framework to create your app, you do not need this license, because your purchase of the Reader Framework includes a license to create an unlimited number of App Studio apps.

  • App Studio Issue License Pack
    As noted above, you can create App Studio issue files for free using QuarkXPress. When you are ready to publish an issue file to an App Studio app, you must purchase an App Studio Issue license pack. These are available to purchase as single issue licenses or in a variety of pack quantities. You can purchase app template licenses and issue license packs from the Quark Store or through a Quark Authorised Reseller.

    Note for larger pack sizes that are not available on the Quark Store, you should contact Quark’s customer service team or Authorised Reseller for pricing.

  • Apple iOS Developer Account
    Starting at $99, you will need an iOS developer account in order to fully test your apps on your iPad as well as submit and sell your apps in the iTunes Store.

  • Web Hosting
    App Studio gives you the flexibility to choose your own hosting provider for your issue files. Be sure to look carefully for the best deal and calculate your bandwidth requirements based on your issue file sizes and projected sales/downloads.

    Note that for App Studio Factory Single Embedded Issue Apps the issue file is embedded in the app and submitted along with the app to Apple. These apps will not incur any hosting costs because Apple hosts everything within the iTunes store.
