How to create my own mobile app?

One of Publuu’s most impressive features is the flipbook app which converts your collection of Flipbook PDFs into a mobile app for mobile devices like tablets and smartphones.

Thanks to this functionality, you can effortlessly create a mobile app for your online catalogs, digital magazines, eBooks, or other documents, which can be published in Google Play. If you’re our Premium customer, we can create the app for you, while all you have to do is to customize it to match your brand design and offer specific issues you choose.

It’s important to note that once your app is released, you will gain access to another remarkable feature – push notifications. It allows you to send push messages to your audience, without any extra charges. Readers will receive your notifications as pop-up alerts on their devices, even if they have closed the app.

By clicking on the cover of the uploaded PDF, you can swap the issues that are uploaded to your Publuu account. If you publish catalogs or digital magazines you can present the current edition and the last month’s one, for example. It’s easy to switch the issues if you want to update your app regularly.

Many of our users want to use the advertising banner – you can use it to redirect traffic from the app to your website or one of your advertising partners. You can upload your own graphics or set the target website to which your banner should redirect traffic.
