When they are reading?
Quite often editors of magazines ask themselves whether it would be more beneficial to publish their work via print publishing or quit it and focus on digital publishing only. While they are thinking of their options, they are often met with the dilemma as to which one is better.
Both options have their pros and their cons, but quite honestly, both of them can be quite beneficial for your magazine. It all pretty much depends on your company’s preference or your personal preference in how you would like to connect with your targeted audience.
Is the digital publishing a must?
It’s time to say what’s up with us. And there’s a lot going on. We’re evolving and we’re doing it for you.
Ten years ago no one even knew that we would all be turning to e-readers and tablets in order to keep up to date with worldwide news, reading books and browsing the internet.
But along came the digital publishing revolution. This involved the creation of the Apple iPad and Kindle, with other companies following suit not long after. This has enabled the online publishing sector to thrive with the introduction of the electronic newspaper and magazines. When Apple first launched the iPad it recorded a whopping 7 million sales in just 6 months.

When it comes to mobile development nowadays you should consider these platforms: iOS, Android, Windows Phone 7/8. With iOS long enough on the market development cost is well known, and it is said to be quite high.
