        Be sure you find out what the difference is between QuarkXpress Pro and the Apple Store version which is not the Pro version.

            Hi DYP,

            both versions, the Mac App Store version and the version sold outside the App Store, are very similar. There's an FAQ page by Quark to list differences:
            http://content.quark.com/MAS-FAQ-EN.html

            Most notable, currently the Mac App Store version (called QX2018 Pro) does not feature JavaScript possibilities, that's due to come soon.

            Other than that, functionally the only differences are due to the sandboxing concept of the Mac App Store, e.g. that the Kindle tool cannot be started by QuarkXPress but needs to be started by you (the user). So they are the same, just you need to operate them differently.

            The license also differs:
            - QuarkXPress 2018 can be installed and activated on two machines, MacOS and Windows. QX2018 Pro (the Mac App Store version) only on MacOS, however on more machines (same Apple ID).
            - Upgrades are not available for QX2018 Pro, again due to the lack of paid upgrades in the Mac App Store (updates of course are).
            - And promos cannot be valued for QX2018 Pro (currently a font bundle with fonts worth around $1500).

            So once the JavaScript possibilities are added, it is more a question of which license you prefer.

            Thanks
            Matthias

              Apple would love that ;-) Or Google?

              Anyhow, seems to be a typo.

              What QuarkXPress 2018 can do:
              - Create Single iOS Apps
              - Create Single Android Apps
              - Create Progressive Web Apps (HTML5)
              All without additional charge from Quark (App Store fees may apply from Apple and Google). As many as you want/need. No log-in or account needed.

                I was curious about the App store and the limitations for how many devices you could install it on. I guess if you are a company using Quark and have a bunch of people using the software it would be cheaper to buy once through the App store and install on all the computers needed with the same Apple ID. No upgrade pricing but it still must be cheaper buying one full version that you can use with multiple computers. Not sure if Apple even has a limit.

                  @wonderings,

                  the license agreement allows you to install on two computers, given that the same user is using it and that the same Apple ID is used.

                  Whether Apple controls whether you can install on more computers, I don't know, never tried.

                  Here's what Apple says about their own app:
                  https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202413

                  On how many computers can I install Final Cut Pro X?
                  The Final Cut Pro X license agreement states:

                  “…you have the right to use the Apple Software as permitted by the Mac App Store Product Usage Rules set forth in the App Store Terms and Conditions (http://www.apple.com/legal/itunes/ww/) (“Usage Rules”), and are granted a limited, non-transferable, non-exclusive license:

                  “(i) to download, install, use and run for personal, non-commercial use, one (1) copy of the Apple Software directly on each Apple-branded computer running OS X (“Mac Computer”) that you own or control…

                  “(ii) if you are a commercial enterprise or educational institution, to download, install, use and run one (1) copy of the Apple Software for use either: (a) by a single individual on each of the Mac Computer(s) that you own or control, or (b) by multiple individuals on a single shared Mac Computer that you own or control. For example, a single employee may use the Apple Software on both the employee’s desktop Mac Computer and laptop Mac Computer, or multiple students may serially use the Apple Software on a single Mac Computer located at a resource center or library.”

                  For complete details, view the Final Cut Pro X License Agreement.

                    I know that you can authorize only 5 computers total to be able to download Apps purchased by your AppleID.

                      That makes sense, forgot about that DRM for the iTunes music purchases. Still if you were able to run Quark on 5 devices at once with the same Apple ID it would be cheaper buying it that way albeit not exactly legal per their fine print.

                          Technically, yes. By license, no.
