With Father’s Day this Sunday and the school year coming to a close, today we’re going to highlight some ways to use MagCloud to do some last minute shopping for Dad, and also how recent graduates can use MagCloud as they commemorate the past and look toward their future.
With the launch of the MagCloud iPad App 4.0 we’ve added support for iTunes In-App Purchase. This means digital publications can be purchased directly within the MagCloud iPad app, automatically charged to the user’s iTunes account and instantly downloaded with a single tap. Readers will have the option to purchase new publications as a guest or sign-in with their MagCloud account for additional access to their existing on-line digital library.
In honor of this weekend’s Indianapolis 500, we’re highlighting a few of the publications on MagCloud dedicated to cars of all shapes, sizes and speeds. Whether your interest is electric vehicles or race cars, vintage collectibles or kit cars, you’re sure to find a publication in the Autos and Cycles category that fits your interest. And if you don’t, you can always create one yourself!
Twitter, and Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube etc. are no longer a new-borns. You’ve been talking about them the same way you talk about your 16-year-old nephew – you hold your palm to your knee and say, “I remember when you were this big.” Similarly, the same incentives that worked for your nephew when he was “yay tall” no longer work on the teenage version. It’s the same with social media.
We made a few updates to the MagCloud iPad application in 2012, including support for hyperlinks and the ability to share publications with friends via Facebook, Twitter or Email from inside the app. Check out our new video to see the features of the updated app in action.
Today we are excited to announce a new web-based viewer that enables publishers to bring stunning versions of their publications to life in any modern web browser on both desktop and mobile computers.
Now publishers can upload a single PDF file and immediately distribute as a free or paid digital publication, in print, in a web browser, via the MagCloud iPad app or as a PDF download.
The HP MagCloud iPad application has been completely redesigned to offer improved functionality, including support for hyperlinks in downloaded publications, ability to access and download content purchased through the MagCloud website, and support for the Retina display of the new iPad.
In addition to using MagCloud to market their real estate business, a number of real estate agents have been using MagCloud as a sales tool. MagCloud’s print on demand capabilities allow real estate agents to order informational flyers for their open houses in smaller quantities, only as they need them, reducing waste and storage costs. Agents have taken advantage of MagCloud’s Ship to Group feature to easily mail copies of their listing catalog to an address list of potential buyers with a single order.
