The Adobe Digital Publishing Suite has been a fairly viable solution for authors and companies to construct their ebooks. One of the big hyping factors is being able to create apps out of books, with little to no coding. The service provides deep analytical reports, see how many people are reading the book and how many people are opening the app. Today the company has announced support for the Kindle Fire HD 8.9, iPad Mini and Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 8.
One of the main new options for support for Adobe DPS is for the Amazon Kindle 8.9-inch edition by allowing DPS apps to be compatible with the device as long as developers create a 1900 x 1200 folio. The second is for solid support for Internet Explorer 10 on Windows 8 web browsers. The iPad mini is poised to see massive success during the holiday season and with the smaller screen and resolution of 1024×768. Existing apps will have to be re-configured in order to provide the most robust experience.
There is also updates for Site Catalyst, which gives new analytical capabilities to provide insight into reader data such as type, model, OS, manufacturer and screen size of reading device, as well as the type and carrier of the device connection used.
