Adobe announced that its Digital Publishing Suite now supports both Apple App Store Subscriptions and Google One Pass. The program is available only to large scale publishers right now but expect many other magazines and newspapers to jump on board in short order.
“The publishing industry has been eager to deliver subscription editions of their magazines and newspapers – and our Digital Publishing Suite will support both Apple subscriptions and the Google One Pass service,” said David Wadhwani, senior vice president, Creative and Interactive Solutions, Adobe. “We think Google One Pass will open up the market for publishers and that healthy competition between technology providers will ensure a vibrant future for digital publications. Whatever device readers choose, they can now expect a lot of great digital editions heading their way.”
Adobe Digital Publishing Suite supports a wide variety of payment methods: free content; single issue purchases; and the ability for publishers to tie into their existing e-commerce and fulfillment mechanisms for print and digital bundling and other offers.
