Create once, publish everywhere

One reason Aquafadas is unique in the digital publishing world is that we offer both cloud and InDesign-based tools. Which tool you need depends on your organization’s individual needs.

Cloud Authoring

Cloud Authoring is a user-friendly system for converting documents into interactive publications for the web and mobile devices. This is an excellent choice for publishers who already have a layout designed, but want to add interactive elements and convert it to display beautifully on mobile devices or within a branded web app. Start with a PDF, JPG, PNG or TIFF file—finish with an ePUB file or mobile app for iOS or Android.

InDesign Authoring

Our InDesign Authoring system allows you to build feature-rich content in Adobe InDesign to be published within an app that you create using our AppFactory tool. InDesign Authoring is ideal for building born-digital apps and publications with an advanced degree of complexity, without the need for any coding or development. Start from scratch or import your layout, finish with an ePUB file or mobile app for iOS or Android.

The best of both worlds—automatic creation with the look and feel of a custom app

The Aquafadas Digital Publishing System offers scaleable solutions for publishers who need to automatically convert a large number of publications from a print or web layout to a mobile app optimised for smartphones and tablets. Send your PDF files to a dedicated server, and once they’ve been processed, retrieve them in your app.

Make Your Content Interactive

Aquafadas allows publishers to import their complete print layout and add over 40 different types of interactive elements like video, sound, animation and more. Adapt your layout automatically, giving you the perfect fit and polished look of a native mobile app on tablets and smartphones. Or, build feature-rich content in Adobe InDesign—using our plugin to add interactivity. When your publication is complete, publish from InDesign in one click.

Create an Intuitive Reading Experience

One of our newest and most exciting features is called Guided Reading. With this tool, publishers can automatically convert all of their content to be viewed sequentially with single finger taps, eliminating the need for panning and zooming.

Guided Reading allows you to create a much better user experience than a PDF replica can offer, without any additional editing or disruption of your workflow.

A Cross-Platform App With No Extra Coding

Our cloud and InDesign-based authoring systems allow you to export your content into a ZAVE file, which is our format for finished issues of a publication. Then, use our AppFactory software to easily create a container app which can be published to both iOS and Android operating systems with no additional steps. Distribute your app internally, or market it on the Apple, Google or Amazon app stores. We also offer the ability to publish to ePUB3 or a branded HTML5 web reader, making ADPS the only truly cross-platform digital publishing system.

Post-Production Content Enrichment

Add interactivity to your content in post-production by first converting your existing PDF files and extracting only the pages you wish to make interactive. Then, edit those pages in Adobe InDesign using our palette of interactive enrichments. If your main edition is converted from PDF, but you wish to create a special interactive issue, simply create a new issue in InDesign and place the file into your existing workflow. Our system can manage both interactive and non-interactive content.

Advanced Workflow Integration

Integrate our publishing tools with your workflow and content management system, eliminating the need to manually add content to your app. Using a template created in InDesign, our system can automatically populate content directly from your CMS. Aquafadas supports all content sources, and can be adapted to the workflow of publishers at any scale. Building a digital publication has never been easier!

Manage your readership

In addition to our standard publishing toolkit, we offer a range of tools built specifically for large-volume publishers.

Connect to Your Existing Database

With database connection, publishers can integrate their app with an existing database of users or print subscribers. Readers can create a personal login to the app, which allows publishers to monitor and control access to their content, and creates a valuable opportunity to engage with your readership.

Communicate With Your Readers

Using in-app messages and push notifications, it’s easy to communicate with your readers regularly. In-app messaging offers the ability to send messages to users inside your app, and is unobtrusive to the reading experience, while push notifications are perfect for alerting users of new issues, features or to re-engage with readers who haven’t opened your app recently. We offer a high level of control and targeting, including demographics, location and more.
