Creately Desktop is available as a standalone edition of Creately for $75 a year which includes 1 year of desktop app upgrades including bug fixes and new features, 1 year of Creately Online premium access and 1 year of email support.
Sometimes we get asked what happens after the first year. Once you reach your first year anniversary after purchasing Creately Desktop the app and license will continue to work and you can load and use Creately Desktop locally on the machine you installed it on. You'll also be able to re-install Creately Desktop with any version up to the anniversary date of your original purchase - this allows for re-installs in the case of failed hard drives etc.
What stops working is your ability to install any upgrades and you access to email support. In addition your included Creately Online plan will be downgraded to a free plan which will mean Creately Desktop will no longer synchronize with Creately Online.
To get the upgrades, support and online synchronization access back you'll need to purchase a Creately Online premium account. For individuals the best option is a Creately Personal plan and for Teams you'll need to choose a team plan the right size, see http://creately.com/plans for the details and prices.
