WoodWing has released version 2.0 of its native iPad Reader App, as well as of upgrades to the Reader Apps for Android and RIM’s Playbook running Blackberry OS.
With version 2.0 of its iPad Reader app, WoodWing adds new sharing functionality that enables publishers to provide their readers with more options for sharing content with the global community.
In addition to the URL-based sharing features offered by the previous version of the Reader App, the new sharing options allow users to share parts of the tablet page or the entire page via Twitter, Facebook and email. When sharing a portion of the page, users are presented with a crop box they can resize or move with conveniently placed handles.
The new Android Reader App 1.2 enables publishers to use the Google in-App Billing framework for offering tablet publications for single purchase. In addition, WoodWing´s new Android Reader App offers a number of usability improvements such as new viewing and toolbar features as well as an option to display pages in text view.
WoodWing´s native Reader App 1.1 for RIM’s Blackberry OS now brings subscription support to RIM´s Playbook tablet device. From the library, users can log in with an existing subscription account and download and access the issues of the publications they subscribed to. The new Playbook Reader App contains a host of usability enhancements, including the option to lock the page orientation, several new viewing options and a modified navigation bar.
