Q: Why do I need an app?A: In today's multi-platform world, consumers want their content when, where, and how they choose. magMaker Editions is the perfect digital platform for providing choice, convenience of use and experience that complement your print offering and enhance your brand.
Q: I have my magazine in one of the digital magazine app store apps so why do I need magMaker Editions?A: We believe that in order to thrive in the digital age, it is imperative that magazine brands stand on their own in the app space. Being available only in someone else’s branded app, acknowledges that their brand is always primary to yours – Kind of like a little fish in someone else's pond.
Current digital publishing platforms have one or more of these shortcomings:
- They are expensive
- They disrupt your workflow
- As we stated, they minimize your brand to promote their own
- They "mash up" your content with others which, further reduces your brand equity..
Q: Can any changes be made to my issues after they’ve been published?A: Content can be updated at any time. Push notifications can be sent informing the reader that new content exists. Readers tap the refresh button to download updated content. A dynamic content panel indicates to the reader updated content is available.
Q: Do you have any analytical information?A: Yes. Flurry analytics is integrated into magMaker Editions apps as a standard feature. We provide:
- Time spent in app

Q: Can I have links for my advertisers and for promotion of my own product?A: Yes. As part of the standard feature set, magMaker Editions allows you to configure the links panel with as many advertiser or product links as you like.
