Digital Publishing Suite to add subscriptions soon

Adobe's Digital Publishing Suite, a future product for allowing publishers to easily create content that scales to a wide variety of desktop, mobile and tablet devices, will add support for subscriptions from Apple and Google. The suite, currently only available via a pre-release testing program, will handle various forms of payment methods, from partially-free content and single-issue purchases to existing e-commerce mechanisms for print and digital bundling. The latest pre-release version already supports Apple App Store subscriptions, and Google's One Pass model will be added in the very near future.

The Digital Publishing Suite allows content creators to either re-purpose print-oriented files or originally create content for digital editions that can be customized for various popular e-reading devices, using a combination of viewer technologies, tools and hosted services -- leveraging the features of the Creative Suite software.

The suite is being extensively tested by over 3,000 publishers and content authors such as Conde Nast, Wired magazine, Reader's Digest, The New Yorker and others, and is already used to create over 130 titles currently available, such as the iPad version of Wired. A Content Viewer for Android was also recently incorporated.

The suite is aimed at magazine, book, catalog and newspaper publishers, and includes tools for analytics, distribution and e-commerce as well as authoring features. It can create standalone iPad apps, ePub, HTML5 and PDF formats, among others. The software is expected to emerge from testing sometime in the second quarter of the year.

    Digital publishing for iPad and tablet with Adobe

    We have explored the theme of digital publishing for IPAD and tablets,
    we were beta testers from the Adobe solution for digital publishing (Adobe DPS).

    In six months we have learned a lot and we decided to share our experience and practice. We have collected all into a project that is not just an app, but a set of tools that we needed to move towards a digital magazine.

    We'd love to know what you think and if you think our tools useful.

    Here all the information about it:
