Version 2 iPad Magazines

Today, we've just released our V2.0 offering for iPad magazines.

This version works much better with the iPad than V1.0 released at the end of March.

New features include:

  • a fixed menu bar at the bottom of the screen.
  • Content List can now be view
  • Easier left/right swiping between pages
  • Pictures can now be full screen
  • It is now possible to sell the magazines to the public using PayPal.
The final payment option is in closed beta with a limited number of publishers. But we see this as a significant step forward into incentivising publishers onto the eyemags platform and make money from their content.

At the same time iPhone EyeMags 2.0 is also released with the same new features.

For both the iPhone and iPad EyeMags use the HTML5 features which allow offline webapps to be created. EyeMags makes it easy for publishers of great content to make it available as apps on thousands of different mobile devices.

A Mutualised Media Offering - describing

Great video of Alan Rusbridger (editor of the UK's Guardian newspaper) talking about the revolution of Mutualised offering of media content.

In the video, he is talking about the Guardian doing these offerings, but here at we see his words as fitting perfectly with what we are doing with eyemags

Eyemags enables anyone to create content application in a perect open environment and here at eyemags we collaborate with the new breed of publishers to enable them to distribute and sell their content to users throughout the world.

Selling of content is new from us and there will be more information on this in the coming weeks
