MagCloud iPad App

We’ve refreshed the MagCloud iPad app with support for iOS9 and iPad Pro devices. More great features will be coming soon!

2013_04_hyperlinks-ipad2The MagCloud iPad app is a great way to sell your magazines and other content on mobile using iTunes In-App Purchase. Readers 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.

2013-04-multipledevicesPublications purchased while signed-in to the app will also be saved to a user’s Digital Library on the MagCloud website, allowing them to be read on all their other devices as well, either via the MagCloud Web Viewer or as a PDF download.

The new version of the the MagCloud iPad app also boasts faster performance when browsing, reading, downloading and switching orientations; on-device account management and sign-up; and various user interface improvements to make the app more intuitive.


For publishers this means another way to monetize and build awareness for your content.  If you have already opted-in to digital distribution as a paid digital publication, your publications will automatically be available for sale in the new version of the iPad app.  To accommodate Apple’s iPad-pricing model we will automatically adjust pricing on the iPad to match the nearest pricing tier (most often the nearest $X.99 increment).

Publishers can use our digital pricing calculator to see in real-time how your pricing and earnings will compare for publications you distribute on the MagCloud website and via the iPad app. Free digital publications remain the same. To learn more about MagCloud digital distribution see our FAQ.

    I love that COLORED PENCIL Magazine is now available for purchase on the new upgraded app and, we already noticed sales, but I’m having a hard time figuring out how to link to my magazine and my tags are not showing up on a search. Thanks you to your team for this fab update!! Any suggestions?

      Hi Sally,

      We are glad that you like the new iPad app features. Regarding your questions…search in the iPad currently only searches on publication title and description but we are looking at extending it to include tags and collections in the future. There is a way to create a link directly to your publication in the iPad app, however the link will only work if it is selected by a user who is on an iPad that already has the app installed. If they don’t have the app installed, or press the link on a different device, they will get an error message. The other option is to have a link to the Web Viewer edition of your publication. This will allow anyone on an iOS device to read your publication in Safari.
