Tablet And Phone Apps With Twixl And InDesign

Course Overview

Twixl Publisher combined with Adobe InDesign allows you to create apps for tablets and smartphones fully independently, and publish them in one or more of the app stores (Apple’s App Store, Google Play or the Amazon Appstore), or distribute content in-house (“Enterprise”). Twixl provides an intuitive and affordable way to create and deliver apps without writing any code or relying on developers. Use familiar Adobe InDesign skills to explore your creativity and develop content that inspires and engages.

    2 Day Course Who should attend? This course is for delegates with an existing understanding of Adobe InDesign (an InDesign 2-day Essentials course as a minimum) and Creative Suite image/graphic creation. Some HTML/Web/Animation experience would also help. We encourage delegates to bring along their own tablets and smartphones to the training to preview and test their output. The devices will require the latest version of the Twixl Viewer which is a free download from the App Stores. WHAT WILL I LEARN?

You can then: Preview on your tablet or phone with the free Twixl Viewer app. Create single-issue test builds for iOS & Android. Create in-house “ad hoc” builds for iOS. Publications exported with the trial version will display a short ‘Created with Twixl Publisher’ message when opening the publication. You preview the result of your interactive InDesign content either in the iOS simulator (on OS X only), or in the Twixl Viewer running on an iOS or Android device on your Wifi network - a good strong WiFi connection is essential for this!
