Here, we’re going to show you how simple it is to use InDesign CS5.5 and the beta of Adobe’s Digital Publishing Suite (DPS 1.0) to create a range of digital publications. As an example we’re going to use Points West magazine, which began life as a printed publication and then Thinkology adapted the design of the print version to suit the iPad’s relatively low resolution.

The greatest advantage of having an iPad magazine app over a traditional print publication is that you can add lots more interactivity such as videos, slideshows, interviews and music to make the experience far more engaging and exciting for the reader. Download the digital magazine for free from the iTunes App Store, go to
