Adobe Intros iPad App Creator for InDesign
Adobe has debuted a new tool designed to allow InDesign users to build apps for iOS devices from their interactive books, brochures, and other publications created with InDesign CS5.5.
Announced Monday at Adobe's MAX 2011 technology conference in Los Angeles, the tool, Single Edition, enables designers to create single-issue iPad applications--with no coding required--for a flat fee of $395 per application.
Adobe is looking to Single Edition to be an affordable way for freelance designers and organizations of any size to expand their digital publishing efforts, said Todd Teresi, vice president and general manager of Media Solutions at Adobe, in a prepared statement. "Adding Single Edition to the Digital Publishing Suite family shows Adobe's commitment to making digital publishing available to businesses of all sizes--from freelance designers to small design firms to large global publishers."
Combined with Adobe CS5.5, Single Edition enables designers to maintain creative control and work within a familiar environment as they create and publish their iPad applications.
Single Edition for iPad is expected to launch in November. Support for additional tablet platforms is expected in late 2012. For more information or to purchase Single Edition, please visit adobe.com.
