Device Central Integration

It's a mobile world, and Fireworks is right there to help you design for it, with new integration with Adobe Device Central. This integration is so key to Fireworks CS5 that Adobe Device Central is even bundled with the standalone version of Fireworks.

In Device Central, you can preview your existing Fireworks design by using Emulator mode, or you can create a custom profile from within Device Central and use that profile as the starting point for a mobile application design (see Figure 12).

Figure 12 Your mobile designs can be previewed in a variety of wireless devices, thanks to the new Device Central integration.
