The Editor UI let you create and design your magazines using basic blocks which you drag and drop in the page. Blocks can be moved around, resized and duplicated. Blocks snap to a grid system. Pages can be duplicated. Reordered. Sections from other magazines or books can be inserted and used as templates. You can tweak behaviour at book level, page level or block level.
Standard blocks include: text, image, audio, video, gallery, drawing, links, iframe, maps, editable text, html and zip files. Any HTML or CSS game or bookwidget found on the web can be added to the magazine. Custom scripts are available from us on request: puzzle, invisible ink, pop-up, video synchronized with text, connectors to Bluetooth devices.
In the Editor it is possible to modify the Reader behaviour. You can decide, or not, that the Motto Reader will let users share pages, or the whole book. Or that it will show them a scrollable Table of contents with miniatures. That the Reader will allow user multimedia notes or that the Table of Contents will use filters for certain types of content.
Contents can be hidden and shown only under some condition: the profile of the user, the location of the magazine, a pressed button or answers to a survey. Multimedia elements such as videos, audio or some CSS animation can start on a click or when the page becomes visible. Some pages can be accessed at all time but only from the menu.
The Reader may be rebranded to suit your needs. Custom modifications to standard interactions are also possible, such as changes to the menu bar, personalized touch events, or filters on table of contents views.
The Reader comes with its own library and database for
user-generated contents associated to specific magazines. This library can also be customized.
Using either event-triggered hidden pages or dynamically loaded information from a server the magazines can show context based contents and advertisements. Context can be time of the day, age of the user, language, location, beacon proximity, answer to a question...pretty much anything you can think of.
Magazines or books can be included in the download from the App Store of your custom branded Reader. Or the library can access, either manually or automatically, a content server to download available magazines.
Motto Reader activities can be compiled using the Apple App Store and Google Analytics. Data such as page views, numbers of downloads, clicks to web sites, usage by country...are therefore available to publishers and their partners.
