Launched today, Version 5 introduces many new features that add significant value to both creators and end readers alike. This solution is the only tool on the market that offers the same rich digital magazine experience in HTML5 that readers have come to expect in their flash editions. 3D Issue version 5 also incorporates easy eBook conversion for Kindle, Nook and other eReaders, as well as the software tool PressJack, a 3D Issue-branded program that converts RSS feeds, web pages and videos into sleek digital magazines.
“3D Issue has been on the forefront of digital publishing since its inception, and we are pleased to bring our technology to our widest audience yet, allowing iPad and iPhone owners to access the dynamic, interactive content that HTLM5 digital magazines can offer,” says Paul McNulty, Managing Director, 3D Issue. “We want to go beyond translating static print magazines into static electronic magazines. By using HTML5, we can provide all readers with a richer experience that truly realizes the promise of digital technology—with live links, embedded videos, and many more features. ”
3D Issue version 5 is built to be completely intuitive and is targeted at the average marketer and publisher without any design training. With a simple interface, users can covert PDFs and blogs into readable and engaging digital magazines. Users can add hyperlinks, videos and sound to create interactive publications that go far beyond what print can deliver. Publishers and marketers can easily convert a graphic-dense magazine into an eBook format, or turn an eBook into a magazine, all within minutes.
