The 'URL Scheme' option in the Viewer Builder did let me to specify a url that made other apps open my viewer. But this option has disappeared from the newer version of Viewer Builder. So. How do I do now to let other apps open my viewer?
Aha! Yes, now I see that. Thanks a lot!
No, we are a design agency, making apps for our clients containing free content - corporate information etc. Due to this, we haven't bothered learning about or testing subscriptions; retail content etc, yet. But it seems it is possible to publish this as a free subscription. I just hope the user do not have to 'subscribe' but can pick and choose what to download. (It would be a bit bizarre to treat a mix of brochures, reports etc as a subscription) :-)
Is there a spacial reason that the URL scheme option was taken away from ordinary Multi-issue viewers? It was there in earlier version. I'll explain our situation:
Our client want to publish corporate information; annual reports etc, with DPS. Not really magazines or newspapers you subscribe to.
We are making another app where they publish news articles, videos etc. In that app, we want to have a link which opens the viewer with their publications.
Any chance that this option will come back in v19?
Bummer. In earlier versions of Viewer builder, the box for entering a URL scheme appeared also for 'ordinary' multi-issue apps. But I suppose it didn't work, then. I discussed this with Klaasjan Tucker in the following thread: http://forums.adobe.com/message/4057891#4057891
Unfortunately, I never had the time to try it out.
Double bummer, it seems free subscriptions have to go into Newsstand, and we want to keep out of it. I'll post a separate question.
