Hmm... so we should call it "cable tethered previewing on device assisted by funny utility". And I guess InDesign and that PhoneDisk app directly put the Folio into the right folder for the Viewer to look in, thus cloaking the folio file and requiring a cable. Nice ? Well, it helps. And it sure takes a lot of load from the LANs, WiFi's and Adobe's bashed and beaten distribution server. And I did have my ice-cream already, so I'm good.
ha ha, is it true that Adobe killed side loading also because people used
tools to get into the file system of the iPad and could grab the content
from downloaded folios there ... now Adobe requires us to use exactly this
tool to enable side loading.
I really like the thing mag+ is doing. You keep their mag+ Reviewer open in
the same WiFi network and can just push your folio onto the device. Bad for
But I heard within the next releases, the folios will keep staying on your
device even after disconnect. Maybe then we get delta updates too.
