Create a better reading experience.

One of our newest and most exciting features is called Guided Reading. With this tool, publishers can 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 offer a much better user experience than a PDF replica, without any additional editing or disruption of your workflow. Our system can detect your layouts and add Guided Reading automatically.

Build 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 editions 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 app, making Aquafadas the only truly cross-platform digital publishing system.

Enhance your content in post-production.

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.

Build your readership.

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 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.

Choose your workflow.

We have tools for publishers of every size, in every market.
