Is there a way to save or export a final folio as a file people can view on their ipad?
Id like to circulate the file (folio) or host it on my website as a way for people
to view my work.
Im aware of of the "share" tool, but would prefer having a file to circulate or host.
Is this an option?
You need to purchase a DPS Licence or a Contract to publish your App to App Store for distribution. To purchase a DPS licence or a contract refer to this link: http://www.adobe.com/products/digital-publishing-suite-family.html?pro moid=JOLIU
Even doing what was suggested -- it would still probably not work in your desired manner. You can export the file from the Folio Producer dashboard once a folio is published.
This would give you a zip/folio file you could distribute. However, the folio file would only (currently) be viewable in the desktop viewer. There is not a standardized way (you could probably hack a script together if you really desired it) to get the folio file onto a user's device (iPad) within the Adobe viewer.
