Thursday, August 12, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

Zaandam, The Netherlands – WoodWing Software, one of the innovation leaders in cross-media publishing solutions, today announced the release of Version 1.4 of its Digital Magazine Tools for iPad, supporting both Adobe CS4 and CS5.

WoodWing's Digital Magazine Tools for iPad are used by many renowned newspaper and magazine publishers around the globe to create iPad issues of famous publications, including Time, Sports Illustrated, Life and Fortune; the Asian newspapers South China Morning Post and Kompas; Veronica Magazine in the Netherlands and many more.

Expanding the creative scope
The new release provides publishers with a number of new and enhanced features, enabling them to create iPad Apps that are even more attractive to the reader. Scrollable elements dramatically increase the creative leeway. Assigning audio files to pages provides for automatic sound when pages are opened. Two-finger swipes to switch to the next story and more.

New features are available for the design of a table of contents – a vertical list that pops up in a separate window. A new scrubber in the page navigator similar to the navigation used in iBooks.

Furthermore, the Digital Magazine Tools 1.4 allow for new extension possibilities. Custom Page Objects allows third parties to add their own functionality to the digital magazine code. Web elements can be shown embedded in the page, as a pop-up in the application or in the Web browser outside the app.

High Acceptance by Publishers around the Globe
"We are very pleased with the high acceptance of our tools by publishers around the world," said Erik Schut, President of WoodWing Software. "In addition to the creative features, they appreciate the fact that they can create their iPad Apps using existing teams. Based on the very positive customer feedback and the great iPad Apps already done with our tools, we can say with confidence that WoodWing is a driving force in the iPad Publishing segment. And we keep our promise to provide enriched versions of our Digital Magazine Tools for iPad each month."

The WoodWing Digital Magazine Tools are integrated with WoodWing's cross-media publishing system Enterprise and WoodWing's content management application Content Station, enabling publishers to create their iPad Apps in a very efficient and secure way.

CCI, a provider of leading newsroom solutions especially for newspapers, offers WoodWing's iPad Reader App under an OEM agreement as part of their solutions.
