In short, any document that you can send to someone, can (and should) be converted to a Mobimag. To get your creative
juices flowing, here are just some of the ways Mobimag is being used...
Sure, just head over to our Examples page.
As for how it works, just tap an example, scroll to read and swipe to go to the next story. That's it.
And try it on phone, tablet and desktop. This way you'll see the magic of Mobimag - one beautiful designed document that looks great on every device.
If you look on our home or pricing page you'll see a side by side comparison between Mobimag and the incumbent online
magazine provider, Issuu.
As you will see for yourself, there are over a dozen features that make Mobimag the better choice for publishers.
However, the biggest reason is Issuu was made for desktop and Mobimag is made for mobile.
Knowing the fact that over 80% (soon to be 90%) of non-work time is spent on mobiles, we know where we would rather be.
Mobimag doesn't design your publication but it does publish it. For the design, you can work with any graphic designer,
anywhere in the world.
All you need to do is ask them to design your pages 400 pixels wide with a single column layout. Once completed, request your pages in PDF.
From there, simply upload your pages to Mobimag and our software will do the rest. Once it's finished processing, you can reorder pages, add branding and SEO keywords.
The whole process takes around 5 minutes.
Then all you need to do is share!
Ask your designer to design each page to be 400 pixels wide by however long your page needs to be.
For ease, we suggest they design every section or article as a separate page. This way, after uploading to Mobimag, you can re-order your pages yourself.
For articles, we recommend designers stick to single column layout and add graphic elements every few swipes down to break up the text.
For covers, we again recommend a width of 400 pixels, with a height of 715 pixels. We also recommend a fade to black at the bottom of your cover page.
Once the design is complete, ensure that the text has NOT been converted to outline. Export each page as a separate page at 150 DPI resolution.
Following these steps should ensure that all pages are less than 10MB, which is our maximum file size for pages. If the files are still larger than 10MB, please instruct your designer to compress the PDF further.
Finally, if you wish to add videos to your pages, please visit our support page.
Absolutely! When you create an account, you begin a free trial. This trial will give you the ability to publish and host
one Mobimag without cost.
If you like it and want to publish more, you can upgrade to Basic or Premium within the App.
And if you sign up for an annual plan, you'll get a 20% discount.
