Which plan do I need?

We offer three types of yearly subscription plans and four extra options. The subscription that is right for you will depend on the number of app(s) you want to create and publish.
Please note that you can always upgrade to a subscription with more features along the way.
All subscriptions allow you to create "ad hoc" or "test flight" test builds, app store builds as well as iOS enterprise builds.

 

Twixl Publisher One / Four / Unlimited Apps

With these subscriptions you can publish one, up to four or an unlimited number of article-based apps in the different app stores, and manage and store your content on the Twixl Distribution Platform.
You can publish InDesign-based, HTML or PDF content. You can also combine these different types of content in the same app.
Article-based apps provide very flexible configuration options to fully customize the look and feel of your app according to your needs.
All apps on the Twixl Distribution Platform support the use of in-app purchases and subscriptions, and allow you to send push notifications. Analytics reports are readily available. In addition to the built-in analytics on the Twixl Distribution Platform, Google Analytics is supported as well.
All article-based apps can also be published to the web via the 'browser client'. 
All subscription plans also let you publish an unlimited number of legacy single-issue apps and Web Reader content from InDesign.

 

Entitlement Pack

This extra option allows you to use restricted access (entitlement) in your apps, both for app store or in-house apps. A typical use case for ‘Entitlement’ is to provide subscribers of a print magazine with a login option to get free access to in-app purchase content. Another use case is where access to the content in an app is based on users and groups privileges, typically for an in-house ("enterprise") app.
The Entitlement pack also provides the option to integrate with an external entitlement server, in case you have very specific Entitlement requirements.

 

Integration API

This option is required when you want to integrate with automated production flows starting from Canvasflow, TruEdit, Vjoon K4 and WoodWing Enterprise & Inception. The API also provides the option for custom integration with any other CMS.

 

Automated content sources

This option is required when you want to integrate with automated production flows starting from Canvasflow, TruEdit, Vjoon K4 and WoodWing Enterprise & Inception, or basically for custom integration with any other CMS.

 

Custom domain

This extra option lets you choose your own domain for hosting the browser client version of your app, e.g. myapp.mydomain.com.
