Using DPS and Experience Manager Mobile with InDesign

Anyone with InDesign or later can use Adobe Digital Publishing Suite (DPS) to create and preview content on mobile devices. However, in order to create apps, you need a DPS or Adobe Experience Manager Mobile (AEM Mobile) license.

With a license, you are entitled to build apps using both Adobe Digital Publishing Suite and Experience Manager Mobile (previously referred to as Adobe Digital Publishing Solution).
