When Apple introduced a new mobile operating system iOS7, our team had just finished working on a new version of the mobile magazine application. This PressPad application allows subscribers to download and read digital magazines published by our editors. In this article we disclose the appearance of our new mobile application optimized for iOS7.
Apple has released its new, innovative operating system iOS7, introducing many interesting features such as the Control Center, AirDrop for iOS and smarter multitasking. But what catches the eye the most is a brand new, beautiful user interface with icons designed in the style of flat design, and referring to the current color trends. Apple’s new mobile system provides a completely new user’s experience, better than ever.
In accordance with the direction set by Apple, we are testing a new version of our mobile application in the PressPad, which is compatible with the iOS7 interface. We can boast about its appearance just now, which fits well with the new system from Apple. This makes reading the publication on iPad even more pleasant.
The new PressPad application is also a brand new promotional opportunity for our customers. Now, with the ability to share magazine covers in Social Media, the subscribers themselves promote available titles from the Publisher by sharing the beautiful graphics within the circle of friends.
