Development and testing with the APIs and SDKs is free.
To deploy an app you build with the ArcGIS APIs or SDKs, you will need a trial or subscription for ArcGIS Online.* ArcGIS Online is the platform from which you get services such as basemaps, place finding, searching, and all the other geoservices demonstrated in the sample applications and discussed in the Use Cases.
Pricing for ArcGIS Online subscriptions is based on the number of service credits you use.
