There are many different ways to read digitally nowadays, and some are more difficult than others. Though we may be in the technology age, it seems that tech companies and publishers alike are still trying to find the perfect way to read something on a device, especially smartphones that go everywhere with most people.
eMagazines is making a big stride in this area of technology with their new reflowed digital magazines in an effort to make the process as easy as possible so that your time can be spent actually reading and not figuring out how to read.
The reflowed digital magazines eMagazines offers are simple—in both make and usage. For make, eMagazines uses software that takes a high resolution PDF of the original magazine, which then converts the text and reflows it so that it can be read more easily on a mobile device.
Regarding usage, there is nothing fancy about the way the reflowed digital magazines operate on your device, which is a good thing. Gone are the days of downloading an app or switching to “text” view. Just open and read!
The digital reflowed magazines show up in subscribers’ email inboxes with just a link, so that all readers have to do is click the link and they are brought directly to the magazine in their primary browser. No logging in and no tutorial needed.
The rest is intuitive. Full pages that fit portrait-style on your mobile device show up in perfect proportion to your screen, while landscape-style pages show up half and half, as they would in a print version. Looking to turn the page? Just swipe, it’s that easy. Looking to jump to a section? Click on the menu button in the top right corner and choose the section. Every action takes no more than 2 steps, making operation and enjoyment of these digital magazines the easiest by far.
