iPad Publication by Designers, for Designers
New Scribbler offers a platform for publishing, and to take tablet publishing where it needs to go. We were tired of publishing applications that are more or less a slide-show of bloated, static pages and images.
To bring a top-quality print publication to the tablet, we started over with just the features we wanted. Real, fully interactive 3D UI and graphics that leverage the device GPU. The ability to lower the data footprint, yet provide enhanced image and video quality (thanks to our decades of combined experience in file optimization and image-handling). A flexible HTML-5 platform that brings pages to life, allowing text search and a choice between the type of flexibility you get with a web page and the option for precise layout from InDesign or Quark. Individual issues that can be small in addition to being large, and that recognize the tablet as a connected device.
We built the app we would want to use to publish and sell interactive publications, and we hope you will, too.
How We Brought a high-quality print journal to iPad
Cinefex Magazine is the quarterly journal of Hollywood visual effects and has for over 30 years been the most highly-respected and sought-after publication in the business. We saw that Cinefex had an amazing back-catalog, 30 years of issues full of unique images from feature films and articles with timeless value to practitioners of the craft of visual effects.
Cinefex saw that the future was to bring their new issues to subscribers and Newsstand purchasers via the tablet, and they demanded a very specific look and feel. We all insisted that the issues and articles to be searchable, easily moved on and off the device as the collection grew, and accessible from anywhere in the world.
