HTML5 provides publishers with higher content visibility and readers with the same stellar experience as a tablet; including a dynamic user interface and 100% web compatibility with all browsersMONTPELLIER, France, September 29, 2014 — (PRNewswire) —
Aquafadas, developer of digital publishing solutions, now offers publishers the ability to create HTML5 WebReader content by adopting the groundbreaking alternative to Flash that is quickly taking over the digital publishing scene. A WebReader gives publishers the potential to increase content visibility while readers benefit from the same great user experience as a tablet. The newest version complements the previous Flash WebReader. Therefore with both Flash and HTML5 versions, users have 100% web compatibility with all browsers, including mobile.
An HTML5 WebReader brings more people into the loop. It targets users on other platforms such as Windows PCs and mobile devices, Mac desktop systems and any other device with a web browser, promoting conversation among a wider array of outlets. HTML5 makes the content SEO-friendly and easy to optimize for search engines like Google and Bing. Publishers can easily export their publication as a WebReader using the InDesign plugin and embed it on a website for greater traffic, benefiting from complete content distribution from one tool. Publications can be exported to every platform in multiple formats, including ePUB files for eReaders, AVE files for creating native tablet and smartphone apps and now, HTML5 WebReader for browsers.
In 2013, mobile traffic rose 81%. Many mobile browsers no longer support the outdated Flash format. HTML5 is filling the void where users need it most, by supporting the transition from Flash with an optimal service every step of the way. HTML5 was created in anticipation of a more innovative future with the flexibility to expand with the market. It is the most efficient way to embed animations, video clips, multimedia tools and other interactive content. It also offers superior performance on platforms such as Linux and Mac OS X for a sleek, lightning-fast interface.
"By providing an HTML5 WebReader to publishers, we are not only giving access to the most powerful and highly compatible web technology," explains Claudia Zimmer, Aquafadas CEO. "We provide a complete digital system that lets you distribute to each platform in the best format: native apps for iOS, Android and Amazon; HTML5 WebReader for browsers and new challenging platforms such as Windows Mobile, Linux; and Flash for former WebReader versions. Because publishers just have to create once to publish everywhere, they are saving time and money, while providing the best reading experience."
Integrating an HTML5 WebReader into a publication's distribution strategy is not just the next step - it is the best step. The Aquafadas Digital Publishing System now offers the largest scale of export format: iOS, Android, Amazon, ePUB, and Flash and HTML5 WebReaders.
