AnyReader generates digital publications with dynamic layout based on a publisher’s content feeds managed in Anygraaf’s NEO by Anygraaf content management system. The dynamic layout adjusts content on-the-fly to accommodate the different shapes and sizes of mobile and tablet screens. The result is a universal look and feel for newspapers, magazines and books optimized across all mobile and tablet devices.
Consisting of an app for tablets and smart phones plus a fully integrated content and rights management system, Anyreader gives publishers a complete solution for developing and managing the distribution of digital content.
Smart and dynamic layout
Utilizing its custom dynamic layout logic, AnyReader’s smart layout always delivers the optimal presentation of text and images on a page giving readers an easy reading and browsing experience. Content indexes, image galleries and story presentations adjust on the fly based on how the device is being used. Support for multiple publications lets publishers “rethink” how content is planned and packaged for digital devices. The ability to create and deliver many different publications within one app coupled with its integrated subscription and rights management gives newspapers and magazines the opportunity to repackage content in a variety of new ways. Digitally, content can be assembled into topic-specific publications, combined with content from multiple print publications or contain content uniquely prepared for digital delivery.
Integrated and automatic
AnyReader can be delivered with a publisher’s unique brand and look and feel and can also be coupled with Anygraaf’s NeoSales system to manage subscriptions and rights. AnyReader is available for Apple iOS, Android and Symbian OS tablets and mobile devices. A preview is available on the AppleStore and Google Play. “From the beginning of this project we wanted to offer our customers a solution that lets them seamlessly deliver content to mobile devices while at the same time have the flexibility and ability to creatively package and repackage content in to uniquely digital publications,” said Hannu Inberg, Anygraaf managing director.
Same package of content for different devices
The same xml content is sent to all supported devices; AnyReader produces a suitable layout for each specific device. Thanks to intelligent and flexible templates, the publishers don’t need to create an individual layout for each different device. An ePublication can be a book, a magazine, a newspaper or a feed of varying content. For black and white eInk devices, a simpler ePub file is produced from the same content.
Article based publishing
The content of an electronic publication is not necessarily the same than in the printed publication. Anygraaf’s article-based publishing concept allows publishers to create different versions of articles for print, web and mobile, or to use the same exact data. Content packages are assembled in Anygraaf’s Neo by Anygraaf system as automatically as possible, based on the metadata and the status information that determines if an article is ready to be published.
AnyReader uses dynamnic layout to automatically design the optimal presentation of content for the device, display size and user preferences. As such, no manual layout or design work needs to be done based on a specific mobile OS or device type. A publisher can maintain its own digital newsstand, complete with an ePaper layer, with AnyReader providing a wide-range of options for selling and packaging content.
