After you create a multi-folio app and submit it to a store such as iTunes App Store, follow these steps to publish your second folio—and each additional folio.

Note:

Use a different Product ID for each folio you publish. If it's a retail folio, make sure that you set up an in-app purchase for the retail folio.

  1. Create your folio using the same Application account used to publish the first folio.

    The Application account determines which folios are tied to a specific app. When you use DPS App Builder to create the app, you specify this Application account in the Title ID field. The app you create displays only the folios published from the Application account.

  2. If you're charging money for a retail folio, set up an in-app purchase for iTunes App Store or Google Play Store.

    The in-app purchase you set up in the store ties the purchase to the folio. When you set up an in-app purchase, you specify a product ID, such as com.mycompany.myapp.issuename. Use this same Product ID when you publish your folio in the next step.

    For more information on setting up in-app purchases, see the appropriate publishing guide:

    Adobe Publishing Guide for Android Devices

    Adobe Publishing Guide for Windows Store

  3. Use the Application account to sign in to DPS Dashboard > Folio Producer. Publish the folio.

    When you publish the folio, do the following:

    • Publish the folio as Public. Private folios do not appear in the custom app.
    • Use a different Product ID for each folio you publish. For example, one Product ID might be com.sportspub.kayaks.2014spring and a second Product ID might be com.sportspub.kayaks.2014summer.
    • If you're publishing a retail folio, make sure that you use the same Product ID specified when setting up the in-app purchase for App Store or Google Play. Make sure that the in-app purchase has been approved.

How long does it take for the published folio to appear?

If you publish your folio as Free and Public using the same Application ID used to build the app, the folio will appear immediately in the app library.

If you publish your folio as Retail and Public using the same Application ID used to build the app, the folio might take some time to appear in the app library if the in-app purchase was only recently approved.

Troubleshooting: Only one folio appears in library

If you publish a second folio but only one folio appears in the library, check the following issues:

  • You may have published the first folio and the second folio using different accounts. Use the Application account to create and publish the folio.
  • You may have published the folio as Private instead of Public. Only Public folios appear in a custom app.
  • You may have used the same Product ID to publish multiple folios. Use different Product ID values for each folio.
  • For the iPad, you published a folio that is not 1024x768. For example, if you publish a 2048x1536 folio, it appears only on HD iPads.
  • If it's a retail folio, you might not have created an in-app purchase, the in-app purchase might not have been approved, or the in-app purchase is still being finalized. For best results, submit your in-app purchases well in advance of when you need to publish the folio. For iOS, in-app purchases do not need to be tied to completed content. Only a screen shot is required.
