Adobe iPad-izer software

Fresh from the problems with the Flash-to-iPad conversion, Adobe has now announced a software viewer that let publishers create digital versions of their documents created in Adobe Indesign.

For those that haven't been following, Apple has already banned an Adobe technology that converted Flash movies into an iPhone/iPad runtime on the basis of it using links to Documented APIs through an intermediary translation or compatibility layer or tool, a process that Apple now prohibits.

It appears that Adobe's latest technology binds content with a viewer application (the application, since it's written using the Apple toolkit, wouldn't be covered by Apple's prohibition on the Flash conversion tool.)

It will be interesting to see what the viewer app will support; maybe it'll play back Flash movies!

No pricing or release information.
