"Accordingly, one particular embodiment of the present disclosure is directed to a computer program product that includes one or more computer readable media having instructions stored thereon for supporting operations such as receiving an identification of the destination device for which content is to be presented, modifying operation of the content authoring process based on the identification of the destination device, and enabling authoring of content in the content authoring process in accordance with the modified operation.
"Another particular embodiment of the present disclosure is directed to a computer program product that includes a computer readable medium having instructions stored thereon for supporting operations such as authoring content to be presented on destination devices. Such instructions, and thus method as described herein, when carried out by a processor of a respective computer device, cause the processor to: (1) present a selection of destination device types for which content is to be presented; (2) receive a selection of at least one destination device type; (3) identify a device profile that corresponds to the selected destination device type, device profile defining characteristics of the destination device that correspond to the destination device type; (4) modify operation of a content authoring process based on the identification of the destination device; and (5) enable authoring of content in the content authoring process in accordance with the modified operation.
"Of course, the numbering of the above steps has been added for clarity sake and is not intended to be limiting and these steps may not need to be performed in any particular order.
"Also, it is to be understood that each of the systems, methods, and apparatuses herein can be embodied strictly as a software program, as a hybrid of software and hardware, or as hardware alone such as within a processor, or within an operating system or within a software application, or via a non-software application such as a person performing all or part of the operations. Example embodiments of the invention may be implemented in products and/or software applications such as those manufactured by
"As discussed above, techniques herein are well suited for use in software applications supporting authoring content for mobile electronic devices. It should be noted, however, that embodiments herein are not limited to use in such applications and that the techniques discussed herein are well suited for other content authoring systems such as those used to create content for presentation over the Internet, on full-size computer displays, on television, or in movies shown in movie theaters.
"Additionally, although each of the different features, techniques, configurations, etc. herein may be discussed in different places of this disclosure, it is intended that each of the concepts can be executed independently of each other or in combination with each other. Accordingly, the present invention can be embodied and viewed in many different ways.
"Note that this summary section herein does not specify every embodiment and/or incrementally novel aspect of the present disclosure or claimed invention. Instead, this summary only provides a preliminary discussion of different embodiments and corresponding points of novelty over conventional techniques. For additional details and/or possible perspectives of the invention and embodiments, the reader is directed to the Detailed Description section and corresponding figures of the present disclosure as further discussed below."
