The Adobe Digital Publishing Suite made the initial ascent into digital magazine publishing easier for digital publishers. Now, updates have been made to Adobe DPS, which may make the software even sweeter.
From its inception, Adobe was focusing on helping digital magazine publishing work easier on tablet devices. Their reach, however, has changed a bit as they are going beyond the tablets and thinking smaller…smartphone smaller.
One thing from the new update is the ability to create digital magazine content for the iPhone and iPod Touch. A switch to the smaller screen will of course mean that publishers and designers will have to rethink their layout, but if this trend catches on, not only will digital publishers have more options, their audiences will too.
