Twixl Distribution Platform: managing content in multi-issue App Store apps

Luk Dhondt 12-03-2013 How-To

While we are preparing the public release of our Twixl Distribution Platform later this month, we wanted to give you a quick update about what this new platform will offer. Screenshot_28_02_13_13_38 What exactly is the Twixl Distribution Platform ?

The Twixl Distribution Platform is offered as a service to users of Twixl Publisher Gold or Platinum edition. It is a cloud-based system to manage and store content for multi-issue App Store apps created with Twixl Publisher.

The content management system allows you to set up multiple apps, and manage the issues in those apps. When publishing new issues, you can optionally send a push notification message to existing users of the app. Apps can contain free content, in-app purchase content (per issue), or subscription content.

The Twixl Distribution Platform also allows publishers to connect to the setup they have in iTunes Connect (for iPad apps) or Google Play (for Android apps). This makes sure that for every purchase via the App Store or Google Play, the Twixl Distribution Platform will let the user download the correct publication.

Platform downloads are automatically optimized for the device, so that an iPad retina will only get the retina content, and a 'standard' iPad only the normal resolution version.

Access to the platform will be available for a yearly subscription fee of €1.750 ($2,250). Subscribers to the platform get 20.000 downloads that are valid for one year. Optional download packages are available for only € 0,0385 or $ 0.05 per download (in quantities of 1.000).
