For content creation, Twixl Publisher offers two approaches; The pixel-perfect approach using InDesign content and the responsive approach using HTML content. We offer a plug-in for Adobe InDesign (all versions since CS6) that allows you to create interactive content for mobile devices. A multitude of interactive content types are supported, such as photo slide shows, audio, video, scrollable content and more. You can even integrate HTML-based content within your InDesign layout.
You can also decide to create your articles with the HTML tool of your choice and make your content responsive. But in most cases HTML content will be published in an automated fashion pushed from your CMS workflow. PDF content is also supported and the different content types can be combined within the same app.
To present your content, Twixl Publisher lets you define the interface of your app, based on a grid layout. “Browse pages” let you introduce your content to your readers in a very flexible way. This interface can be a classic kiosk approach, a continuous channel approach or a combination of both. You are in control and you can define how you want to guide your readers through your content.
For building apps, Twixl Publisher’s stand-alone Mac OS X application lets you create tablet apps, phone apps or universal apps for iOS, Android and Kindle Fire. Both single- and multi-issue applications can be published "ad hoc" (for testing), in the app stores or deployed in-house (also called "enterprise distribution").
The Twixl Distribution Platform takes care of the storage of your content and connects to your automated content sources or your CMS workflow. It manages the distribution of your publications in the different app stores or in-house, supports in-app purchases and subscriptions, manages who gets access to which of your publications, provides detailed analytics information and lets you communicate with your subscribers by means of push notifications.
Twixl Publisher allows you to:
– Create apps for tablets and phones fully independently
– Go from designing to publishing in the app stores or in-house
– Start from different types of content
– Create automated production workflows
