We are DPS professional subscriber. My question is can we sideload the folio where the customer have not Adobe ID and internet. This is the major problem our sales team is facing while contacting to customer. Is there any workaround for this? Please help.
Thanks in adavance.
Currenlty 'preview on Device' (formerly known as sideloading) is only supported on Android devices with the Adobe Content Viewer. The Adobe Content Viewer for iOS has to be approved by apple before this workflow is possible on iPad as well. For iOS, third party software is required (PhoneDisk) when the viewer is available.
With kind regards,
I have downloaded the latest Viewer Builder to the 2.2.0 on my iPad but I'm not able to use the sideload yet with it. Have Apple already approved it to use it and what Adobe Viewer version should have this feature enabled?
You may need to license another piece of software: PhoneDisk, which allows direct access to iOS devices. I have the program but have yet to test. But seeing as the viewer update has been approved by apple it'll be my first job tomorrow! I may be wrong but I get the impression that once the device is disconnected the folio will be lost.
My guess is mid-January for the new sideloading feature, but I don't have all the information about how it will work and whether only DPS subscribers can use it.
If you're creating or editing folios for an existing Newsstand app, don't update the Folio Producer tools until either you've finished working on your folios or you've submitted a v17 version of your viewer app to Apple and it's available. For this release, the v17 folios are not compatible with previous viewers. Your customers will get a "Please update your app" error if you create a v17 folio with a v15x custom viewer.
Yes, that's why there are two separate installers. We don't want everyone to have to resubmit custom viewers whenever we post new tools. However, the Folio Builder panel sometimes forces an update to stay in sync with the web client, but that doesn't affect the version.
