Tool redesigned for more simplicity
Quark has released a new version of App Studio, a tool for converting InDesign and QuarkXPress layouts into web and mobile apps, including digital newspapers and magazines. The latest release has been redesigned with iOS 7 in mind, for instance incorporating a theming feature that controls colors throughout an app. It also integrates with iOS 7's native sharing functions for Facebook, Twitter, and email.
Other additions include one-tap issue previews, sliding "hamburger" menus for things like tables of contents, and previews before switching a reader into fullscreen mode. App users can also be given simplified bookmarking and notetaking functions. Developers have access to a new Store Page design, with customizable banners and more space for promoted content, as well as configuration of subscriber login options and location.
