As you may have heard by now….3D Issue Version 5.0 is out and is the first to market true HTML5 based digital publishing conversion tool allowing for content to be read on a multitude of devices, along with this is the ability to add a homescreen icon to your iPad or iPhone giving a full App experience.
The recent announcement by Adobe that they are to abandon their support for Flash
mobile makes the inclusion of HTML5 in 3D Issue both timely and entirely warranted as the new standard is soon to become the defacto format for publishing in this space.
HTML 5 is already in use and provides the look and feel of Apps in an on-line capacity without any need for downloading or 3rd party App stores, on iOS devices in particular any publication may be presented using 3D Issue as an App by adding an icon to the home screen providing a new and effective way to present content.
HTML5 has the benefit of the look and feel of an App at this early stage of its development and the demise of the Flash format seems certain initially for the Mobile segment and undoubtedly later on the desktop.
To add a homescreen App icon there is an indicator on the reading pane when a publication is displayed which indicated to readers how to add their shortcut – for more information on this check out the video below. There is also the option of specifying the file image which will be displayed on the iPad homescreen from within 3D Issue – video for this is coming soon!
