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.
Commercial products exist that allow publishers to post Apple iOS versions of their print editions. However, cross-publishing to the Android OS is extremely difficult; furthermore, publishers are unable to use PDF files or support social sharing in Android. MediaWire Mobile solves these problems while offering the features readers and publishers want most.
Of special interest to publishers and advertisers are MediaWire Mobile’s analytics capabilities. The platform automatically processes reader registration data to provide a host of useful statistics. For readers who register using their Facebook account, an additional level of information can be gleaned regarding subscriber interests, reading habits, geography, demographics and more.
“MediaWire Mobile offers a host of features at present. But this is only the beginning,” noted Hoffer. “There are truly groundbreaking capabilities in MediaWire Mobile’s development pipeline that will deliver a whole new level of value and competitive advantage.”
Multiple Pricing Options
MediaWire Mobile is available in three affordable plans to meet the needs of weekly, monthly and quarterly publications. Daily and custom publishing schedules are also supported. For more information, go to www.mediawiremobile.com.
