Is it easy to publish to my iPad or mobile platform?

it is as easy as 1,2,3. We provide you with EasyPublish, a Web-based screen that enables you with the click of a button to publish to your iPad or mobile, send the story with attached images or video to your editorial desk, or post it to Twitter or FaceBook.

Will I need to register my iPhone or iPad apps on the App Store myself?

With most packages we will register it in your name for a small additional fee in your own account. For the entry-level 'Be There' package we will register it with your own name and branding under the KnowledgeView umbrella account.

Do I need my own server to publish my content to mobile or iPad?

We provide you as part of the package with a totally hosted environment for publishing your content to your mobile devices. We can even pull content from your own Web site if you have full text RSS feeds published on it, to make it easy for you to update your mobile or iPad. Our aim is to make it easy for you to expand to the new vast world of mobile and iPad publishing at the minimum effort and cost.

What are channels?

These are very much like sections of your traditional Web site. You can organize your iPad or mobile content into channels such as: Latest News, My products, Events, Economy News, My Photo Gallery, My Video Gallery, etc. The number of channels available to you varies from 4 for the startup 'Be There' package to 20 or more for the Publish package.

I am intrigued by the support for Twitter, please elaborate?

The EasyPublish tool allows you to publish Twitter hashtags, by deliberately including hashtags as part of the published material so that users tweet those hashtags to discuss your content. This has several advantages:

  1. Makes use of an existing (and very popular) social media platform for adding comments to apps and engaging users
  2. Users can use their existing accounts and tools for commenting on your content (twitter, tweetdeck, etc)
  3. Followers of users who tweet about your content can be invited to engage with your content too – ie., the aim is to draw in new users to engage with your content based on trusted recommendation (on the assumption that to follow someone is to trust or value their opinion)
  4. The social media buzz around your content can be brought back to you and displayed alongside your content, even if that conversation and commentary was not provided via your app
  5. The people who engage with your content still “own” their own comments because they are not held captive in your application or website, they are “mine” as part of my twitter timeline.
  6. The publisher (app owner) uses EasyPublish to create content. As a routine part of that content creation they create some hashtags to associate with each piece of content.

Magazine iPad application case study

With Sayidaty Magazine for iPad you have not only weekly or monthly editions but multi-media views of developing stories day by day

The store front allows the user to download editions and to browse them entirely on the iPad.

Using the date picker, the user can browse previous months' magazines, making the store front an archive for all the Sayidati editions.

Since Sayidati Magazine is considered a large magazine, having many pages, we decided to work on a progressive download, loading pages one after the other without keeping the user waiting.

Users can jump between the magazine's sections and the pages using the picker which can be shown/hidden when you tap anywhere on the screen.

The media gallery is composed of photo albums and video galleries.

Photos are viewed in full view, while the photo picker and the navigation bar can be hidden/shown when you tap on the screen.

The picker concept is always there in the application to browse a set of items that belong to one entity. This applies to the edition's pages, photos, albums, articles.
