I'm glad Adobe has this forum (thanks). Even after reading through PDFs, product pages and watching Adobe TV presentations, there are so many variables that it makes my brain hurt.
I mean that in terms of what you can and can't accomplish with certain tools and subscriptions; it makes things tougher to understand than it should be for people who use InDesign occasionally rather than every day. Here are some points of confusion. I checked FAQ and 3 pages of threads and didn't see any titles that addressed these. Sorry if Dups.
1) If I prepare my content documents, then join DPS Pro Monthly... does that mean I can pay $495 one time, and distribute my app (it's a converted long-form doc not a magazine or periodical) with a folio for each of: iPad 1/2, iPad 3, Andiod 10", Fire, as long as they are submitted within that 30 days?
2) Multi-folio Apps are often described in terms of "recurring content" or "issues"... but it seems its broader than that. Seems like every time you want an individual document (whether you update it frequently or not) to be available for a given tablet, that is one folio. IOW, devices dictate folio count too, not just the number of times you update something with new content. I was saying this in another thread but, basically DPS Single Edition is really "one app on one device" (counting iPad 1/2 as one device and assuming content devs will want to optimize a folio for ipad 3).
3) Do DPS Apps, once they are accepted by Apple and Amazon, stand completely alone from any other type of player? IOW isnt' the Adobe Content Viewer strictly for testing? There is no other "container app" buyers must use to see DPS generate content, is there? To the end user it's just like any other app?
4) Does this tree accurately reflect the content hierarchy?
