    The Classic Digital Edition is a web application that helps you publish your online magazine in turn-page style (flipbook) format. It is ideal for publishing your online magazine when:

    • You need to keep content formatted into pages
    • You want to provide readers with a real magazine-like experience
    • You want to sell ads by page area coverage and position within the magazine
    • You want to focus readers on the issue and isolate them

    How does it work?

    Layout

    • Intuitive turn-page layout: Since the Classic Digital Edition is just like a real magazine, your visitors will have no problem navigating your online magazine.
    • Content formatted into pages: Create stunning, free-flowing designs that impress your readers. You’ll also be able to sell ads by page coverage.
    • Clear issue isolation: Give your online magazine the full attention it deserves. By isolating each issue, you won’t overwhelm your readers and will let them enjoy the new issue they were looking for from the first to the last page.

    Navigation

    • Intuitive and easy to use: Readers move linearly, from left to right using arrows on their screen or keyboard. It’s all about making the technology work for your readers. Let’s keep it simple and fun!
    • Expandable table of contents panel: Navigation through the magazine made with an interactive table of contents is easy to access. Every page from the table of contents is preloaded so you’ll see the page in a blink.
    • Dynamic links inside content: Make your magazine more interactive by linking your content to open other related content within the magazine.

    What are the features?

    • Social sharing: Readers will have the ability to share any page of your magazine to the most popular social networks with just a few clicks. This will expand your network and help your digital magazine grow.
    • Social following: Make it easy for your readers to connect with you and watch your social following increase at a rapid pace.
    • Subscribe form: Conversions are key. The Class Digital Edition includes a conversion-focused form that encourages readers to subscribe in just one click.
    • Dynamic content: With a digital magazine, you’re able to bring more value and interactivity to your content with videos, popups, and more. Even your loyal print readers will be curious to check your digital version./li>
    • Fully responsive on every device: Readers are using other screens like their mobile device and tablet, to consume content more and more, and utilizing their desktop less. Your magazine has to look good on every device and screen.
    • App-like experience: Provide your readers with a seamless experience on tablets and smartphones. Works just like an app, but your readers don’t need to download anything.

    • Quick loading: We have created an intelligent loading technique to cut down user-visible loading time to the minimum. We load the first page quickly, then the next pages the user might access with one click, then the further ones, and so on. This gives your users a frustrate-free reading experience.
    • Offline use
      • Print – You’ll get a professionally designed print version that complements your digital version.
      • Download – allow readers to download the whole magazine PDF or by article for online use.
    • Highly monetizable: The Classic Flipbook we built is a power player when it comes to advertising. Check out the ads portfolio to see what it can do. We can customize this portfolio for you, so you can have a powerful sales tool.
    • Highly customizable:
      • Add archive: Add an archive panel to your magazine, so readers can see your past issues quickly.
      • Open links in a popup: Choose to either open all magazine links in a popup or in a new tab.
      • Buttons: Add functional buttons to your magazine layout with a strong call to actions or directives such as text-only version or voice reading.
      • Zoom levels: Customize zoom levels of the magazine to allow users to zoom in on detailed images or specific pages.
      • Embed forms: Add live, fillable forms to your magazine pages, like contact us, get a quote, and more.
      • Subscriptions: Perhaps you’ll want to lock specific content so only subscribed users can see it. Choose to make the whole magazine free, members-only, or vary based on the article or page.
      • Deep-linking: Link directly to any page in the magazine, which is great for the user’s experience and SEO.

    Choosing the right application

    When choosing a web app to publish your digital magazine, it is very important to choose the HTML5 app that publishes your magazine in a real text with embedded web fonts and images. Also, you’ll want to look for an app that gives you the ability to add dynamic content to your pages such as text, videos, sounds, and animations. Keep in mind that you’ll want to consider the loading speed, as it is very important for your app to load quickly.

    Finally, it’s important to make sure if the publishing software will work with your publishing strategy and advertising models.
