Australian Personal Computer Launches Using Digital Publishing Suite

Australian Personal Computer (APC) Magazine is one of the world’s longest published personal computing titles. “Launched in May 1980, we were there when Apple’s Macintosh and IBM’s PC were born; then got to ride in Bill Gates’ limousine when he launched Windows 95, and were in San Francisco’s main Apple store to buy Apple’s iPad when it arrived in 2010.”

And now… APC is on the iPad, and will soon be on Android devices. Created with Adobe Digital Publishing Suite, it is sure to please the geek in all of us. Zoom into gadget pics, watch videos of product reviews, and (my favorite) follow step-by-step instructions on installing an SSD drive into your PC.

According to editor Tony Sarno, “We chose Digital Publishing Suite because it’s a full solution allowing publication, monetisation and analysis of content on tablet devices – we can use our existing investment in Adobe InDesign® CS5.5 and the included digital publishing tools to create an interactive magazine.  InDesign used in combination with Digital Publishing Suite provides the publishing infrastructure to get the app to a point where all we need to do is then submit it to the app stores. Best of all, we can do all this in-house, using existing magazine staff without any additional resources.”
