iPhone, Android apps from PDFs?
July 9, 2013 8:28 AM   Subscribe

Looking to create standalone apps for iPhone, Android phones, and Android tablets that will present a digital replica of a booklet based on PDFs from the printed version.

I have access to Adobe DPS but I understand it only produces standalone (aka "single folio") apps for the iPad -- so I'm covered there, but need to do the same thing for those other platforms. I prefer a Mac tool but could use a PC one if necessary; this looks like it would work (for Android at least) but it doesn't cover iPhone. Thank you!

Looks like DPS does iPhone now.

Response by poster: Thanks flabdablet, but as noted on that page, no single-edition versions are available for the iPhone. This means there must be a "reader" app into which users must download issues, as I understand it. I'm trying to avoid this -- would prefer that the app open directly into the booklet content, not a "library" of issues that the user must then tap to get to (more steps than are necessary with a single-issue app). Thanks again, though!
