Combining the cutting edge Baker Framework with a plugin for Adobe InDesign called In5, Zaxyn has been able to migrate their existing digital publication to a fully interactive iPad app. By using the same assets as the full digital PDF version, the Zaxyn creative team will be able to launch each issue of TCT Magazine through all distribution channels simultaneously.
Beyond a simple re-formatted PDF file, the interactive iPad app includes slideshows, active links for more information about articles and advertisers in each issue, and even embedded videos. All content is accessible when the device is connected to the Internet, and all magazine articles can be read in off-line mode.
A one-year subscription to the enhanced version of TCT Magazine includes five full issues of content along with all previous issues for only $9.99. Single issues can be purchased individually for $2.99, and the app includes a preview of the January 2014 issue, which can be downloaded free of charge.
Shane Williams, Owner & CEO of Zaxyn Media says this is just the beginning. By leveraging open source frameworks such as Baker and the Baker Cloud, Zaxyn will be able to help any small publication make the move to a fully interactive digital app.
