Adobe has updated its Digital Publishing Suite to make it easier for publishers and brand managers to distribute their content on Apple's iPhone and iPod Touch devices.

Adobe's Creative Suite. Previously, designers could not easily take

At Adobe's annual Digital Publishing Summit today, the software maker
also introduced social sharing features that permit readers and
customers to easily share articles on Facebook, Twitter, and via email.
The tool gives publishers or brand content managers the ability to
configure articles available for sharing, choose social media channels
in which they can be shared, and set a limit on the amount of content
that can be shared free of charge.
