The Twixl Platform

Create > Present > Build > Distribute

    5 Components:

    • Twixl Publisher InDesign plug-in
    • Twixl Viewer Classic (iOS / Android)
    • Twixl App Reviewer (iOS / Android)
    • Twixl Publisher macOS application
    • Twixl Distribution Platform

    For content creation, Twixl Publisher offers two approaches:

    • the pixel-perfect designapproach using adobe InDesign content and
    • the responsive approach using HTML content.

    Twixl offers a plug-in for Adobe InDesign CC
    that allows you to create interactive content for mobile devices.
    A multitude of interactive content types are supported,
    such as photo slide shows, audio, video, scrollable content and more.
    Also HTML-based content can be integrated within the Adobe InDesign layout.

    You can also decide to create your articles with the HTML
    tool of your choice and make your content responsive.
    But in most cases HTML content will be published in an
    automated fashion pushed from your CMS workflow.

    PDF content is also supported and the different content types
    can be combined within the same app.

    To present your content, Twixl Publisher lets you define the interface
    of your app, based on a grid layout and define your own navigation.
    “Browse pages” let you introduce your content to your readers in a
    very flexible way. This interface can be a classic kiosk approach,
    a continuous channel approach or a combination of both.
    You are in control and you can define how you want to guide
    your readers through your content.

    For building apps, Twixl Publisher's stand-alone macOS application
    lets you create tablet apps, phone apps or universal apps for iOS and Android.
    Apps can be published "ad hoc" (for testing), in the app stores or
    deployed in-house (also called "enterprise distribution").
    For an article-based app, you can also activate the browser client
    that lets you publish your content to your web site.

    For distribution of your content, the Twixl Distribution Platform
    takes care of the storage of your content and connects to your automated
    content sources or your CMS workflow.
    It manages the distribution of your publications in the different
    app stores or in-house, supports in-app purchases and subscriptions,
    manages who gets access to which of your publications,
    provides detailed analytics information and lets you communicate
    with your subscribers by means of push notifications.

The Twixl Workflow

Twixl Publisher Workflow - 1. Define structure of content - Icon

    Define the structure of your content

    Before building a house you draw a floor plan.
    Before you create your app or even your content you define the structure!

    Your content is the heart of your app but how will readers
    find the way to the heart of your app?
    How are you going to structure your content?
    Are you going to organize it as issues,
    divide it into different sections or chapters,
    or is it just going to be a stream of articles?

    What kind of content will you be using?
    Adobe InDesign-based, HTML-based, PDF ?
    Will you be integrating with a CMS, RSS feeds, …?
    Which links do you want between which parts of your content?
    Even before starting to create your content,
    you need to define the content architecture of your app!

Twixl Publisher Workflow - 2. Define layout and enrich articles in InDesign and HTML - Icon

    Layout and enrich your articles in Adobe InDesign / HTML

    Start creating and enriching your content with your trusted creation and layout tools.

    Twixl's plug-in for Adobe InDesign allows you to create enriched interactive content.
    The complete creation process takes place in the same environment
    which is key to a fluent workflow.

    Twixl Publisher offers a complete pallet of interactive features, action buttons,
    slide shows, video and audio, scrollable content, image sequences, panorama VR,
    web viewers for integrating web content, HTML5 animations, etc.

    When using HTML content, you can use your trusted HTML tools to create
    the content article by article, but in most cases HTML content will be pushed
    from your CMS workflow in an automated fashion.

Twixl Publisher Workflow - 3. Setup Automation - Icon

    Setup Automation

    Setup automation with your CMS and integrate RSS feeds

    You can push content to the Twixl Distribution Platform
    from several CMS workflow systems and editorial systems.
    You can also pull content from an RSS feed,
    that can then easily be integrated in your app,
    by selecting from one of the integrated display templates
    to determine the look and feel of the RSS feed.

Twixl Publisher Workflow - 4. Determine the interface of your app - Icon

    Determine the interface of your app

    How are you going to guide the reader through your content?

    Once you have decided which types of content you’ll integrate in your app,
    you can start designing the interface of your app.
    Define how you are going to introduce your new publication,
    which article(s) you are going to emphasize,
    some specific chapters or sections you want to put in the spotlight,
    provide an overview for readers to access all your legacy content, …

    Twixl Publisher lets you setup and manage this interface in a responsive way,
    and all configuration options are server-driven,
    so that any updates will immediately be reflected in the app.

Twixl Publisher Workflow - 5. Preview and share your content - Icon

    Preview and share your content

    How does it look on a mobile device?
    Does it work the way you were expecting it?

    For previewing content, whether it’s Adobe InDesign-based, HTML or PDF-based,
    you can use the Twixl App Reviewer.
    This app lets you check the complete setup of the app you are creating,
    including the browse pages, the navigation and possibly the entitlement setup.
    You can also use this app to share your creations with colleagues or customers.

Twixl Publisher Workflow - 6. Build your app - Icon

    Build that app

    Lets create that app!
    Single, Multi, for the app stores, for in-house distribution.

    The content is ready, the app interface is ready, so the next step is to create the app.
    The Build wizard will guide you step by step through the app building process.
    So you can submit it to the app stores or publish it in-house.

Twixl Publisher Workflow - 7. Distribute your content - Icon

    Distribute your content

    This is what publishing is about.
    Getting the message out there in the fastest and most flexible way.

    Now your app is deployed you will feed it with content and distribute
    the content to your readers.
    This is done through your account on the Twixl Distribution Platform.
    The platform will provide analytics reports nohow readers are
    interacting with your content.
    You can also send push notifications to communicate with your audience.

Twixl Publishing Tools Overview - Picture

Twixl Publisher and Twixl Distribution Platform

    Twixl Publisher and Twixl Distribution Platform are two separate products:
    • To create your publications you need Twixl Publisher.

    • To distribute multi-issue apps public via App Store kiosks or
      in-house/private/enterprise you need Twixl Distribution Platform.

    If you do not want to create your publications in-house you would only need
    the Twixl Distribution Platform, and your agency could use Twixl Publisher
    to create your enriched in-house publications for you.
    But if you want to to be able to both create and publish you need both.
