Anorak launches in-app purchase support
Kindmags has released it’s latest iOS app with the publication of Minerva Magazine, the leading international publication focusing on archaeology, the antiquities markets, and exhibitions.
Minerva magazine uses the Kindmags PDF replication platform which takes print ready files and converts them into interactive digital formats. Once published each edition is available in the Minerva Magazine branded app and allows readers to easily browse the contents, bookmark their favourite pages, access external web and email links and share content via their favourite social media channels.
Minerva Magazine turned to Kindmags when they wanted to broaden the distribution of their print editions and open up a new revenue stream. The Kindmags platform has full support for in app purchasing, allowing for flexible pricing options. Minerva Magazine is available as a single edition for £2.99 and will be shortly launching an annual subscription option.
Because Kindmags has integrated with Apple’s in app purchasing the process is quick, simple and seamless. Before purchasing an edition a reader can view the contents of the current edition and preview sample pages. When they want to purchase the edition all they need to do is click to buy, enter their iTunes password and once processed their digital edition will be ready to download. If a reader purchases a subscription then future editions will be available when published and if iOS5 is installed automatically downloaded to Newsstand.
