Magazine Publishers Are The Real Winners Of The New Apple Privacy Policy

Apple is a company that needs no introduction. Together with Facebook and Google, it dominates the technological world and sets the tone for different kinds of businesses. Each, even the smallest change these big three introduce can have a huge impact on the whole world. This is what has happened recently due to announce the new privacy policy by Apple. It’s time to say it loud and clear: magazine publishers are real winners of this situation.

Who would have thought that such a little change would make so much noise?

Guided by the belief that privacy is a fundamental human right and one of their core values, Apple decided to facilitate people’s access to privacy policy settings. They don’t ban tracking but will require app creators to obtain consent from their users to track them.

This little step can make big changes in the advertising market, what many entrepreneurs worry about. However, all the signs indicate that the magazine publishers can sleep peacefully because they can become secure business partners for advertisers.

What changes will Apple introduce? How will it influence magazine publishers? If you want to know answers to these questions, read on.

10 Years of PressPad – a Story of How to Change the Magazine World Thanks to Digital Publishing Platforms

PressPad celebrates its 10th birthday this year. It is an opportunity to take a trip down memory lane: summarize achievements we got, mention key moments we experienced, talk about challenges we faced. Therefore, we’d like to invite you to read this article, which will allow you to get to know our story better, find out what motivates us, and maybe make you want to create a digital publishing future with us.

Have you ever experienced a moment of suspension when someone asks you what you were doing yesterday and you don’t remember it? It is a strange phenomenon in which we can’t recall what happened literally moments ago. What’s more interesting, sometimes we keep in mind what happened a few years ago better than a day before.

Let’s go back in time… 10 years.

It’s 2011. What does the world talk about?

After 25 years, The Oprah Winfrey Show ends. Many people will miss its sense of humor and wisdom or tens of millions of dollars worth of “Oprah’s Favorite Things” giveaways. The whole world sings “Rolling in the Deep” together with a singer who is a revelation of the music scene – Adele. The word “blockchain” is used in print for the first time. The same year Steve Jobs dies, and Apple Inc. becomes the most valuable company in the world.

This year our story begins. It is the starting point of a series of events that we hadn’t even dreamed of then.

We’d like to invite you to accompany us on our sentimental journey. Hop in!

Mobile App Development Continues — Introducing a Brand New Magazine App for IOS

The mobile app development took us a while but it was worth waiting.

PressPad, a mobile app development company, has entered the new year with a bang, by announcing a new mobile magazine app for iOS. This is another step forward in the company’s evolution which is a follow-up to the redefinition process of PDF-based apps. Their new product is not only a nod to publishers who want to reach readers using iPhones and iPads, but also a stress on the role Apple plays in PressPad apps’ development, since their beginnings.

If someone asked you what you associate with Apple, what would you say? The world’s famous bitten logo that is a masterpiece of design? Charismatic founder Steve Jobs, whose image we all remember as a man in a black turtleneck and jeans? Or maybe devices such as iPhones or iPads?

For magazine publishers, Apple is much more than the above few associations. It is an opportunity to charm over a billion App Store visitors with content in the mobile version. One of the paths leading to this goal is through PressPad’s new magazine app designed to more effectively reach iPhones and iPads users, and to offer readers facilities that go far beyond the print sphere.

If you want to reach readers using iOS devices with your PDF content, be sure to check what new things we’ve prepared for you.

What Does Apple App Store Tax Reduction Mean for Publishers?

The App Store Tax reduction becomes a reality. “Apple announces App Store Small Business Program” – this headline appeared on Apple’s website yesterday bringing many small and medium-sized company owners a lot of excitement and hope. The released news means that publishers will receive a 15% reduction on the App Store tax from in-app purchases. All this to ensure higher profits for the vast majority of publishers selling applications and services on the App Store.

The program will launch on January 1, 2021, and Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO, said that it has been created to “help developers fund their small businesses, take risks on new ideas, expand their teams, and continue to make apps that enrich people’s lives.”

That’s one small step for Apple, one giant leap for publishers.

Come and see what you need to know about the new App Store tax.

From the Desk of the CEO: What Do Free Pages from Apple Mean for Magazine Publishers?

Building a business for “free” is a very big challenge, probably the biggest challenge that a firm and its management can face. It is, therefore, especially pleasing that Apple has joined the group of companies offering some of their products for free.

Of course, “free” is almost never really free. Several decades ago, “free lunch” was free only because the food was so heavily salted that diner visitors had to order a (paid, how else?) drink.
