Canada’s Mygazines launches Mobile 3.0 Beta for tablets and smartphones

Canadian Digital publishing leader Mygazines has launched Mobile 3.0 Beta, an app-like software that works on any mobile device. The HTML5-based system “mimics an in-app experience by supporting video, links, high quality zooming, pinching, swiping, text-only mode, fast content loading and spreads” – all without the need to access from an app store.

Available as part of Mygazines’ digital publishing software package, Mobile 3.0 lets publishers, professionals and corporations “produce optimized mobile editions via the same URL they would use for the desktop solution.” Users access a link, and the platform detects the device and shows a modified interface.

“With so many different gadgets entering the market, we wanted a solution that was geared to meet our customers’ needs today and in the future. Mobile 3.0 provides the ability to adapt to mobile browsers across different devices,” said Yoav Schwartz, CEO of Mygazines. “Now more content creators will be able to render digital, app-like experiences in minutes rather than months.”

Mobile 3.0 works on almost any touch-screen device, including the iPhone, iPad, Android phones, and Blackberry Torch.

“Mygazines Mobile 3.0 simplifies the process for adapting to the mobile market for the content creator. For an end-user, with no need to ‘download an app’ or alter engagement by device, adoption is natural,” said chief marketing officer Randy Frisch. “Mygazines is offering our customers one of the industry’s most comprehensive professional digital publishing solutions.”

And pair your Mobile 3.0 device with a free e-reader, computer, or other free tech toy for a truly plugged-in Christmas.
