lightbulb

We’ve been hard at work since launching in March to make Pressly an even more powerful way for you to create and publish the world’s most immersive mobile reading experiences. With an updated interface, an incredible analytics widget, improved social sharing and even a seamless desktop reading mode, Pressly is proud to unveil our latest upgrades.

 

Cleaner, more beautiful dashboard design, making Pressly more intuitive than ever

We have re-organized and refined the look and feel of our dashboard to make it easier to navigate and build your apps as intuitively as possible. From a cleaner, flatter look, right down to unifying the settings pane to give you one spot to control everything.

 

An all new analytics section

Pressly now pulls together your user behaviour into a beautiful, visual analytics section to give you quick and customizable reports on how your users are interacting with your content. Subscribe to check it out!

 

Enhanced social sharing, with Pinterest, Google+ and LinkedIn

We’ve added a new social sharing box on all Pressly properties, so your readers can now share your content to their Pinterest, G+ and LinkedIn accounts, as well as Twitter and Facebook, all in one tap.

 

Desktop reading mode!

This is especially useful if you’re using Pressly to create a stand-alone, brand new property. Now when your readers visit a Pressly URL from a desktop computer, they will still be given a beautiful, elegant reading experience. No more sending them to an error page.

 

Cover Pages

You can now add a cover page to your Pressly properties. This is the first page your visitors will see; think of it as the front page of a magazine. It’s an awesome way to highlight your brand and it also gives you an exciting new sponsorship opportunity.

 

Easy new way to place your ads, just cut-and-paste ad tags

In addition to specifying a URL pointing to your ad unit, you now have the ability to copy and paste your ad tags right into the Pressly dashboard.

 

New Ad formats for smartphone and tablet

We’ve also enabled new, larger ad formats for smartphone, including a full-screen interstitial.

 

Soundcloud and Brightcove content support

We’ve also added more content formats to our supported list, including audio streams from Soundcloud and the enterprise video service Brightcove. (For custom Brightcove integrations or help, please get in touch.)

 

And much more, including:

Windows Phone 8 and Surface support, ability to customize a Bookmark icon for homescreen, and the ability to put 3 external links in navigation bar.
