Mobile Parent offers access to ParentLink
DTP Tools has released a new mobile InDesign editing utility for the iPad, while ParentLink has launched a new mobile client for accessing its school communication system
iDML is a new iPad application that allows users to edit stories from InDesign documents directly on their mobile device. The software shows all stories within an InDesign document and prevents layouts and third party data from being modified during the editing process. It also displays a list of all fonts and styles used throughout the document, allowing users to quickly assign matching formats to different text selections. iDML is being offered in the App Store for $20 and is compatible with all iPad devices running iOS 3.2 or higher.
