Our Favorite Features of 2010


As we are kicking off a new year here at MagCloud Central we thought we would look back at our favorite new features of 2010.

Ship to Group lets you mail magazines to multiple recipients with a single order.

Improved Sales Stats gives publishers more insight into how their magazines are performing—page views, sales per day, number of followers, locations to where issues are shipped, and of course, your profit!

Upload from Flickr lets you easily turn your Flickr photo sets into a magazine without the need to use a design program or upload a PDF file.

MagCloud Messages is a way for members to ask publishers questions, give props to their favorite magazines and get updates on new issues.

Profile Pictures lets you give your MagCloud profile some personality. Simply click on “Account” at the top of the page (you must be logged in) and edit your profile to upload or change your profile picture.

Perfect Binding, one of our most requested features: gives magazines a more professional look with a square spine and uses glue to hold the pages, like a paperback book.  They can also accommodate a much higher page count – up to 384 pages.

The Follow Feature is a way to give a publisher a little bit of encouragement. If you follow a magazine, the publisher will be able to send you messages about submissions, new issues, and other magazine news.

Promote Page makes it easier for publishers to get the word out about their magazine.  From MagCloud widgets for showcasing your magazine on your blog or website, to MagCloud badges which help attract new followers, to email and Facebook and Twitter share functions, the Promote Page helps you tell the world how great your magazine is.

Expanded International Shipping opens up MagCloud to the rest of the world, with worldwide shipping for multiple issues up to 300 pages.

These are some of our favorites; feel free to tell us which are yours.

And next week come back and find out what we have in store for you in 2011!

    These new features are great, but what I’d love to see is the ability to publish wall calendars – and in both horizontal and vertical formats.

    I have A LOT of vertical images and if you had a vertical format, I would have published a few calendars already. So I’d love that format the most, but I would utilize both options.

    I hope you will add this feature by summer, so we can publish calendars for 2012. I would love to put out a line of wall calendars!

    Thank you!
