Twixl Publisher - 5 components

Smart content publishing

1. Twixl Publisher plug-in for InDesign on Windows & OS X

You'll create your complete interactive publication in the same familiar environment..The design, the content and the enriched elements are all brought together in Adobe InDesign.

Supports any version of InDesign since CS6

2. Twixl Publisher app for OS X

The Twixl Publisher application allows you to build your apps, and converts the InDesign export into a ready-to-go iOS and/or Android app, either tablet only, phone only or universal.

Use the exported InDesign content to preview or to create an "Ad Hoc” or test build to install on your iOS or Android device outside of the App Store.

3. Twixl Viewer Classic

The free Twixl Viewer Classic app for iOS and Android allows a designer to send a preview of an InDesign-based publication or article from within InDesign to a tablet or phone on the local Wifi network.

Using Twixl Publisher's sharing feature, a designer can also share a publication with a client or a colleague, ideal for proofing purposes.
