An inside look at content creation, innovative solutions and interactive development for the iPad and touch devices.".
Magazine and newspaper publishers have been facing great challenges in the past few years as advertising dollars for their print publications became harder to come by and news become a commodity available immediately and for free online. The introduction of tablet devices last year has created a lot of energy in the publishing arena as publishers saw a way to combine the visually intricate designs available on paper, with the compelling interactivity available on devices. Let’s look at how easy it is for you to get publications of all types (magazines, newspapers, annual reports, catalogs and other corporate documents) to an application that can be distributed not only on the iPad, but also on a growing range of Android tablet devices.
