I'm wondering if there are any fairly automatic solutions to make app versions of magazines I design in InDesign?
Some larger magazines have their own apps, and you can browse magazines and collect issues in said apps.
I'm asking if there are any "turnkey solutions" that create such apps, or if they are all built and coded from scratch. And if such apps exist, could you use existing indesign work as a starting point, or would it be as unique a design structure as say a website?
This is an idea to create a bit of extra income for a small publication, this is why I'm looking for simple, ready solutions, if they exist.
Haven't found anything recent on google, at least yet.
There are many different magazine apps.
There are a number of third-party suppliers for this kind of thing.
The one I like is Paperturn, https://www.paperturn.com/uk/ it's easy-to-use and has helpful support. I produced a promotional brochure recently where I linked parts of a Paperturn document to feature call-outs in InDesign's Publish Online documents (plus an embeded YouTube video). All seemed to work well together!
I apologize for jumping in with nothing to offer, but I wanted to save this for myself for future reference.
Thank y'all for the great information. This is one of the reasons I like coming here.
