Adobe's Digital Publishing Suite to Support Newsstand for iOS 5

Adobe today announced that its Digital Publishing Suite will incorporate support for Apple's forthcoming Newsstand feature for iOS 5. Newsstand is intended to serve as the organization hub for digital subscriptions in iOS 5, offering users easy access to the latest content downloaded in the background.

ios 5 newsstand
Adobe's software will allow publishers to create digital editions of their magazine and newspaper applications that automatically deliver content to the Newsstand application on iOS devices. The compatibility will launch "soon after" Apple debuts iOS 5, which is expected sometime this fall.

Publishers will be able to use Digital Publishing Suite to create files that are detected by Newsstand and automatically downloaded to the Newsstand shelf, eliminating long download times which can present a barrier to reading content on iPad devices. Applications built with Adobe Digital Publishing Suite and enabled for Newsstand will allow publishers to better merchandise their content with support for Newsstand push notifications and icon covers displayed on the Newsstand shelf, reflecting the latest issue of the magazine or newspaper.

A number of publishers including Condé Nast and Reader's Digest have utilized Adobe's publishing tools to bring their content to the iPad, making Newsstand compatibility for Adobe's Digital Publishing Suite an important step toward making Newsstand the one-stop place for users to manage their digital subscription content on their iOS devices.

The last time I jailbroke my iPhone was back in 2008 with my Original iPhone. I think I might have to once again revert back just so that I can hide Newsstand, along with other useless apps Apple insist on adding without the ability to remove them (Yes Contacts app, I'm talking to you).
Just create a folder and place there all the Apple useless apps you want.

You can not put Newsstand inside of a folder since it acts like a folder already.

I'm just confused why Newsstand has to be part of the OS and not be an optional download like iBooks.

Adobe's DPS is a *bug factory*

I am a New Yorker subscriber (one of those DPS using Conde Nast publications) and the thing is PATHETIC. Huge file sizes (~150 MB) for issues that are 90% text, crashes constantly, stalls while loading new issues and you can't change the font size(!!!) because all the text is actually a bunch of JPEGs of text...

Dear magazine publishers -- please avoid Adobe's tools like the plague and hire some highly competent Cocoa Touch programmers to make a native iPad app. for you.

As much fun as playing around with the iOS 5 betas is, it's features like these which take advantage of the iOS 5 SDK that get me truly excited for the platform.

Now if only Apple would update the Maps app. It's getting a bit worse for wear.
