YUDU Media is to launch AppFactory on 1 October – an extension to its Easi-App product that allows publishers to create apps for iOS and Android. the company has today showcased the new technology at FIPP’s World Congress in Rome.
AppFactory empowers service providers to publishers around the world to automatically create apps for their clients, overcoming the need for local language support or the assistance of YUDU’s technical team.
Richard Stephenson, CEO, YUDU, said: “Previously, developing a magazine app was a more bespoke process. Publishers had to provide us with brand assets and then a team of technicians had to manually construct the app. Language barriers made it challenging to provide this service to publishers in distant countries. AppFactory surmounts these obstacles by giving Global YUDU Partners anywhere the ability to quickly produce apps for local clients without our intervention.”
A cloud-based, white-labeling web application, AppFactory provides a user-friendly development experience for anyone servicing the print industry. AppFactory publishers gain access to a standard template of code that can be customised with their client’s brand assets and then tailored to the client’s exact specifications through a wide array of configuration options. The final result is an Easi-App container app.
