Announcing MediaWire Mobile: Affordable Way For Print Publishers To Create And Distribute iOS/Android Editions
MONTREAL, QUEBEC – (April 8, 2013) – MediaWire, an interactive media applications company, today announced the availability of MediaWire Mobile, a powerful new service for print publishers who wish to circumvent third-party newsstand listing fees and take their publications directly to today’s mobile readers. Affordable enough for any publisher, MediaWire Mobile, a cross-platform solution supporting iOS and Android devices (Windows and Blackberry under development), also offers a range of analytic tools that help publishers and advertisers to better understand subscribers and create exciting new marketing opportunities.
MediaWire Mobile allows print publishers to not only easily produce mobile editions for iPads, iPhones and a host of Android tablets and smartphones, but also list those editions directly to the Apple Store and Google Play online stores as well as the Apple Newsstand. Editions are posted using the publication’s name and masthead, giving them immediate brand recognition while eliminating the costly listing fees that are a part of most online newsstand services.
“MediaWire Mobile is a seamless method for bringing print magazine titles to today’s mobile device user. In one fast and affordable solution, publishers can maintain and develop their brand, their unique look, and their readership,” said Clifford Hoffer, CEO of MediaWire. “We believe our customers, rather than their service provider, should develop and cultivate a relationship with their subscriber base—which is why we not only provide access to all available statistical information, but also pass the lion’s share of the subscription revenue on to the publisher.”
Single Point of Access
Ideal for any kind of paid or free periodical, MediaWire Mobile can support single or multi-titles within one online app. Publishers simply upload one file; any hyperlinks existing in the file for affiliate marketing purposes are automatically posted in the online edition. Moreover, the service supports integration of YouTube videos and bookmarks, as well as social sharing on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and many more social media sites.
