On May 2nd, Adobe pushed a new update of the DPS, now in version 20. Here are the important infos and updates (all details here):
You can now build apps for the iPhone as well (create folios in 480x320 or 960x640), they appear in the content viewer for iPhone and in your app. You can only create multi folio apps for the iPhone for now. Therefore, Single Edition does not yet work with the iPhone.
The iPhone viewer does look and work a bit different. While you scrub with the slider at the bottom, the iPhone is going into the browsing mode automatically.
The app you build is an universal app that works both on the iPad and iPhone. Or you can build them individually.
Folios that are enabled for social sharing via facebook or twitter (new!) or email (new!) or copy link (new!) can now be viewed in the browser, maintaining interactivity. You can protect articles that are not accessible in the browser. View a Demo here.
InDesign CS6 compatibility
When InDesign CS6 is available, the v20 tools will be compatible and you wil be able to use CS6 with these tools.
Improved Folio Producer
The design and workflow of the Folio Producer at digitalpublishing.acrobat.com is improved. Publishing a folio to the distribution service now runs in the background. An article has now the “Hide from TOC” setting, making it disappear from the Table of Contents without setting it as an Ad.
Improved Folio Builder Panel
The folio builder panel now shows the size of the folio. Small improvements when creating articles and folios, but still now out-of-date indicators, update-all or something else that would improve the usability.
Resizeable Content Viewer (if your screen is smaller than the folio you are watching), Preview on Device does no longer require you to use Phonedisk and smooth scrolling articles in PDF will be kept as PDF when they are no longer than two pages (smooth scrolling articles longer than that will automatically be converted to static PNG/JPG).
Can I update Adobe DPS?
If you are a pro or enterprise customer, you can build your own content viewer for iPad or iPhone and test your v20 folios.
Everybody else should wait for the generic Adobe Content Viewer to be approved by Apple. Neil Enns from Adobe shares the status of the approval here.
