Adobe's Digital Publishing Suite will support iOS 5 Newsstand feature

Support will come 'soon after' the launch of iOS 5, Adobe said

Adobe has announced that its Digital Publishing Suite will support the Newsstand feature in iOS.

Digital Publishing Suite is a set of hosted software services and viewer technology to allow large publishers to create, distribute, monetise and analyse digital magazines, newspapers and publications and was launched early in 2011.

"Publishers will be able to use Adobe Digital Publishing Suite to create magazine and newspaper applications that appear in the Apple Newsstand section of the iTunes App Store and the Newsstand folder on the iPad," Adobe said in a statement.

Significantly, it will conform with Apple's subscription policies that require subscription-based app publishers to turn over 30 percent of revenue generated by subs bought from within apps or digital publications on iOS devices.

The Newsstand will be a major new feature of iOS 5, though rumours that Apple was working on a digital newsstand system for the iPad first surfaced around a year ago.

In May, Adobe re-jigged the pricing structure for Digital Publishing Suite based on market feedback.
