LONDON 26 February 2013
Exact Editions, the leading supplier of digital magazines as Apps and Digital editions has just released new versions of its iOS App to include social media integration and bookmarking. The 6.6 upgrade will appear across all Apps using the Exact Editions platform including Gramophone, Grand Designs and Dazed & Confused. However, this is not just bookmarking. This is Exact Editions bookmarking.
With an Exact Editions subscription readers have access to all the available back issues of their chosen magazine, with Gramophone currently holding the record as the largest digital magazine archive in iTunes dating back to 1923. These issues are searchable, and can now be bookmarked and shared. The Exact Editions Apps are the first to offer this rich combination of sharing features taking full advantage of the specialist interest communities that many magazines appeal to. Individuals receiving a link as a tweet, for example, will be able to go straight to that page. Subscribers will see the page immediately, non subscribers will be invited to subscribe or the publisher may choose to release the page/s for open access.
Want to be able to quickly and easily bring up all the pasta recipes from Sainsburys Magazine. Simply search, save and sync and have the recipes all there whenever you need. The bookmarking feature means that App subscribers can create folders and list within folders of their favourite articles. These folders and lists can be synced for offline reference. The bookmarking feature is especially useful to those subscribing to magazines with rich archives.
Daryl Rayner, Managing Director of Exact Editions said of this development: "It is great to see Exact Editions continuing to enhance the Apps in this way. I think our publishing partners will be pleased to be able to offer their subscribers a way of communicating their content to millions of Twitter followers and Facebook users. At Exact Editions we believe that archives and back issues make the magazine app experience much deeper. Many of the magazines we work with have amazing archives and providing tools such as these for the subscribers is a way of unlocking value and enjoyment that comes with such depth of back issues."
