Shadow is now Adobe Edge Inspect

The Shadow free preview period is ending

We’d like to thank you for using Adobe Shadow during its free preview period on Adobe Labs. On September 24, 2012, we will announce and ship Adobe Edge Inspect, which will replace Adobe Shadow. Here’s what you can expect during this transition:

  1. On September 24, 2012, your Shadow Chrome Extension will be replaced by the Edge Inspect Chrome Extension. It will have an “In” badge icon in place of the Shadow “Sd” badge. The Edge Inspect Chrome Extension will continue to work with your version of Shadow until Shadow expires on October 31, 2012.
  2. Your Shadow iOS and Android apps will be updated to Edge Inspect when you update your device’s apps. The Edge Inspect iOS and Android apps will continue to work with your version of Shadow until Shadow expires on October 31. After that, your Shadow software will no longer accept device connections.
  3. You’ll need to upgrade your Shadow software on your computer to Edge Inspect. You can do this immediately, or continue to use Shadow until it expires.

Edge Tools and Services

Edge Inspect is part of the new Adobe Edge Tools and Services. You can can get started with all the Edge Tools and Services by signing up for a free or paid Creative Cloud membership.

If you’re already a Creative Cloud member, you can download and begin using the full version of Edge Inspect and the other Edge Tools and Services today, at no additional charge – they’re now included with your Creative Cloud membership.

If you are not yet a Creative Cloud member, you can join for free, and begin using the benefits of the free Creative Cloud membership, which includes the free version of Edge Inspect.

Edge Inspect free vs. Edge Inspect full version

The Edge Inspect full version does not limit the number of concurrent device connections you can have. The free version has access to all of the full version features including Synchronous Browsing, Remote Inspection, Screenshots, cache clearing, localhost support, HTTP authentication, and HTTPS support – but is limited to one concurrent device connection. We hope this will allow you to use all of the features of Edge Inspect, and determine whether an upgrade is right for you.

To use the full version of Edge Inspect and connect an unlimited number of devices, a paid Creative Cloud membership or an upgrade to the full version of Edge Inspect at USD $9.99/month is required.
