Texterity Plans Launch of New Digital Reader
President: ‘This creates first real program for concrete revenue generation.'
Digital publishing vendor Texterity has announced plans to launch a new version of its Coverleaf Reader.
The revamped Coverleaf will include an updated design, new revenue generation tools and additional functionality, as well as introduce IAB ad display, one-click social networking and “i-frame” technology that imports a digital edition into a Web site or e-mail. It will be introduced in May.
"This Web reader increases reader engagement, broadens social networking systems and creates the first real program for concrete revenue generation,” said Texterity founder and president Martin Hensel. “We expect to bring all our publishers on board during the months ahead and work closely with them to maximize these new capabilities."
Texterity produces digital editions for Hearst, TechTarget, Meredith and O’Reilly Media, among others. The transition to the upgraded interface will be at no cost for publishers already using the service.
The new reader will also include discussion groups for threaded conversations and hosted forums. “Hot Zones” will enable smoother page turning, as well as expandable or collapsible tabbed drawers for navigation.
