Adobe DPS supports Amazon’s Kindle Fire tabletPosted: November 23, 2011
Adobe Systems Inc. last week said its Digital Publishing Suite can now be used by publishers distributing content via Amazon’s Kindle Fire tablet.
The $199 Fire, which hit the market last week, uses a version of the Android OS. Adobe also said DPS can be used for creating content for other Android devices, including Motorola’s Xoom and Samsung’s Galaxy Tab.
For Fire users, publishers can use DPS to create a branded content viewer that supports full-screen viewing without a standard navigation bar, a feature that is always visible on most other Android devices, said Lynly Schambers-Lenox, an Adobe DPS group product marketing manager.
“I think this will be tremendous in terms of how publishers accelerate their reach,” she told News & Tech.
Publishers that have used DPS to create content for the Fire include Reader’s Digest and Condé Nast titlesAllure, Traveler, The New Yorker, Wired, Glamour, Golf Digest, Vanity Fair, Self and GQ.
“The opportunity to offer Condé Nast titles on the Amazon Kindle Fire supports our goal to reach readers wherever they are with our distinct, award-winning content,” said Monica Ray, executive vice president of consumer marketing, Condé Nast, in a statement.
