MagazineCloner.com, the largest magazine app developer in the UK, today announced the launch of their Pocketmags Magazine Newsstand application for Android, the tablet version of their online newsstand Pocketmags.com.
Pocketmags is a FREE digital newsstand App which allows consumers to purchase single magazine issues and subscriptions from a wide range of magazines from across the globe. As part of the launch a number of publishers are offering full, complimentary editions of their titles, increasing the appeal of the App’s initial offering whilst introducing consumers to their brands.
The Android App is available for all major Android devices (2.2 or later), is free to download and has been optimised for Honeycomb tablets, in addition to phones, to ensure an enjoyable customer experience. All the magazines can be enjoyed in full colour and high resolution, with a number of publishers producing interactive digital editions enhanced with videos, image galleries and other rich media.
Patrick Knight, Strategic Development Director said, “The launch of our Android newsstand application further extends the reach of our clients’ titles in the digital arena. With just one upload their titles are now distributed through 8 shopfronts on all of the major digital platforms: ‘Branded apps’ on the Apple App Store, Android Market and HP Touchpad, online page-turning versions on Pocketmags.com and its affiliate sites and now the Pocketmags Magazine Newsstand app for Android. The iPad version of the newsstand will also be launched shortly.
We see this as complimentary distribution to that which is already being achieved through our publishers’ branded/stand-alone apps. It also allows us to increase our consumer-facing promotional activity, introducing the Pocketmags brand and all the titles therein, as opposed to trying to individually market each of our nearly 500 branded apps – something which our publishers are each successfully doing and we encourage them to continue to do so.
We are always looking for ways to introduce our clients’ titles to new audiences and we see this as another fantastic opportunity to do so.”
The Pocketmags Android App also offers MagazineCloner.com’s unique Subscriptions Credit system. Readers can purchase a subscription and receive it in the traditional way, issue by issue, but can also choose to spend their ‘credits’ on back issues. This has consistently led to increased back issue sales and faster subscription renewals.
Additional features include:
- Offline Reading: Editions are downloaded to a user’s device and can be read whenever and wherever, regardless of whether a connection is present.
- Multi-Platform Reading: Every purchase a user makes can be accessed on any of the numerous platforms and devices simply by logging into their Pocketmags account
- Background Downloading: Users can make their purchases and then continue to shop, or read existing downloads, whilst new editions are downloaded to their library.
- Library and Multimedia Manager: Users can easily manage any memory issues; with the ability to delete whole issues or just the rich media to save space on the device.
- Global Newsstand: Our magazines are from publishers worldwide, including UK, USA, Canada, Australia and Europe.
- Google In-App Billing: All purchases benefit from the convenience of Google Checkout.
