What Exactly Is Adobe DPS?
One thing I think a lot of people are unclear on is exactly what DPS is. Is it a program? Is it a service? When you subscribe to Adobe Creative Cloud, you create an Adobe ID (if you didn’t already have one). Tied to that ID is the ability to create apps from InDesign. Really, it’s as simple as that.
You can create apps from Adobe InDesign CS5 and later (CS5, CS5.5, CS6, and CC). Unfortunately, for earlier versions of InDesign (CS5/CS5.5), you need to download the tools for InDesign necessary to create the apps.
