The MagCloud team is really excited about 2011 and has lots of great features we are considering. We believe this should be the year of choice…more ways to publish and sell, and more ways to discover and enjoy great content.
Some of the things we are considering at MagCloud Central are:
–Expanded digital distribution, offering publishers more ways to sell and distribute their magazines, and readers more ways to buy and read them.
–An easier and smarter publishing process; including faster and more forgiving PDF uploading, auto-fixing to catch and help resolve the most common PDF upload problems, as well as a simpler overall publishing process. All of this to give publishers more time to spend creating, and less time fiddling with PDFs and uploading to the site.
–Additional print formats to offer publishers new ways to have their content stand out.
–Reader ratings and reviews, and making it easier to share magazine favorites and recommendations with the rest of the MagCloud community.
–Enhancements to the MagCloud platform to make it easier for third party developers to build their own websites and applications on top of MagCloud, and that can link directly to MagCloud’s publishing and distribution capabilities. So no need to recreate all the heavy lifting we’ve already spent the last 2 years building.
These are just a few of the things we have in mind (some of them already work in progress!), but would love to hear which features top your 2011 MagCloud wish list. Please let us know.
