About ezAppStudio Solutions

About Digital Publishing
Digital Publishing defines the distribution of print-based content in its original form via a native mobile app. All ezAppStudio products are rich media Integrated Digital Publishing Solutions.
Unlike other providers, all ezAppStudio solutions integrate our customers’ full online and media presence inside their app. Readers are able to access, and use all rich media integrations directly within the app. (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Google+, YouTube, Websites, Webshops, Maps, embedded Videos, Picture Galleries, Email etc.)
One single QR Code scan or a download via the app Stores acts as the essential point of entry to view the entire media and online presence of our customers.
Whilst accessing the integrated rich media content inside each publication, readers stay inside the publications of our content providers instead of being forced outside our customers’ corporate environment and app.
This prevents the loss of readers to external service providers, such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, YouTube etc, who usually are designed to lead customers away from their original point of entry (i.e. through access via websites, eCommerce stores or any other URL link).
