Adobe says the Adobe Digital Publishing Suite will support both Apple App Store subscriptions and Google One Pass for magazine and newspaper publishers. It’s currently available as pre-release technology.
With 130 Adobe produced titles available for purchase and download today, the addition of subscription capabilities increases the business opportunity for publishers — including more than 3,000 publishers and content authors currently participating in the pre-release program for Adobe Digital Publishing Suite, says David Wadhwani, senior vice president, Creative and Interactive Solutions, Adobe.
Adobe Digital Publishing Suite supports a variety of payment methods: free content; single issue purchases; and the ability for publishers to tie into their existing e-commerce and fulfillment mechanisms for print and digital bundling and other offers. In the latest pre-release of Adobe Digital Publishing Suite, there’s new support for Apple App Store subscriptions when used with a publisher entitlement server. Broad support for Apple App Store subscriptions and Google One Pass will be available in the very near future.
Adobe Digital Publishing Suite provides professional publishers a set of turnkey hosted services, tools and viewer technologies to create, publish and sell digital content directly through mobile marketplaces and content aggregator partners. Built on the foundation of Adobe Creative Suite and Adobe InDesign CS5 software, Digital Publishing Suite enables the design and delivery of innovative publisher-branded reading experiences.
