Integrate your PageSuite app with Apple Newsstand8/8/2011
Want to appear alongside the most popular publications in the world?
Newsstand is a new feature of iOS5 that allows users to access their favourite digital magazines and newspapers from one central place on their home screen. Newsstand displays the covers of all your newspaper and magazine subscriptions in one place. There will also be a dedicated Newsstand area in the app store just for newspapers and magazine subscriptions allowing users to quickly find the most popular newspapers and magazines in the world.
Discover a New Way to Integrate your Content
When a new edition becomes available, our servers will send a push notification to your reader's device. This message will notify the device that a new issue is available and instruct the application to download the specified content immediately. The publication image on your subscriber's Newsstand shelf, on the home screen of their device, will update to display the latest cover. A counter and update message will make the user aware that there is a new issue to read.
What are the benefits?
Newsstand will bring increased exposure to apps that integrate with PageSuite's page-turning technology, making it easier to find newspaper and magazine apps in a growing marketplace. Alerting readers of new editions will be made even easier by updating the publication cover on their home screen and automatic downloading will also ensure subscribers always have the latest issue delivered to their device to read offline at their convenience.

Extending your reach
With an increasingly crowded tablet market, publishers can find it confusing to decide which devices to deliver their content through. PageSuite have the ideal solution, by allowing cross platform publishing with their new HTML5 reader. PageSuite first launched this solution this week with many clients using it to complement their iPhone and iPad applications, to reach readers through multiple devices and multiple platforms.
Benefits and Bonuses!
With PageSuite’s HTML5 solution, publishers can avoid the extra costs involved with having custom applications developed. Clients also escape paying Apple 30% of their subscription or application cost. The HTML5 solution does not involve long development and approval times, allowing content to be available cross device almost instantly. With this solution, publishers can distribute what they want, when they want, with the added bonus of not having to abide by any app store requirements. The HTML5 solution can integrate with publisher’s own subscription and data collection model.
Distributed via a link to the publication, readers can choose to read the edition online or download and save PDFs to their device, which can later be read through iBooks, without the need for internet connection. The HTML5 solution also allows for readers to search both current and old editions of the magazine or newspaper. Users can even save the publication to their homepage for quick and easy access to their favourite publications. For more information on PageSuite’s HTML5 solution, contact your account manager or email firstname.lastname@example.org
