    Twixl Publisher - The Creation Tool
    Twixl Publisher is a publishing solution that takes projects from Adobe® InDesign® to mobile devices.
    Twixl tools greatly simplifies the job to create and publish interactive and enriched publications/apps
    designed in Adobe® InDesign® on Apple iOS/iPad and Android tablets.

Twixl Flow Sketch 0 - Twixl Workflow - Process Overview - Picture

    Twixl Publisher translates print designs into digital designs by integrating interactive content
    such as photo slide shows, audio, video, scrollable content, panoramas, 360° viewers,
    HTML5 animations and more into a seamless publishing experience.

To manage articles Twixl Publisher supports two workflow concepts:
"InDesign book" and "separate articles".

Workflow based on InDesign Book concept:
Twixl Flow Sketch 0.3 - Twixl Workflow - Based on InDesign Book - Picture


Workflow based on separate articles:
Twixl Flow Sketch 0.2 - Twixl Workflow - Based on Twixl Article - Picture
Just export separate articles, then assemble them with
the 'Publication Composer' in the Twixl Publisher Builder app.
This makes working with multiple designers on the same publication a lot easier.

    Twixl Publisher is used for publishing to iOS and Android devices
    and to web (HTML) in modern browsers via the Twixl Web Reader feature.
    Twixl Web Reader provides convenient reading for everyone:
    • Consumers of publications can read the same content on different devices during the day.
    • Real content can be read on tablets, desktops and laptops by the same subscriber.

    Twixl Publisher is the preferred tool to develop interactive and enriched
    content apps for both internal and external use.
    Apps where the design and the enrichment of the content are most important.

    Anyone knowing Adobe InDesign can do mobile publishing with Twixl Publisher:
    • creatives
    • publishers
    • communication & PR agencies
    • independent designers
    • web agencies
    • printers
    • enterprises
    • and others…
    …can all reuse content already available in Adobe InDesign format.
    The only thing needed is to learn the medium and enrich the content for a better interactive experience.

    Just about any type of content that can be printed can also be published
    as an interactive and enriched media app with Twixl Publisher:

    • branding apps,
    • product sales/presentations,
    • manuals,
    • catalogues,
    • brochures,
    • enriched books,
    • annual reports,
    • leaflets,
    • newsletters,
    • brand magazines,
    • research reports

    Twixl Publisher fits every budget.
    A large part of the app is created in Adobe InDesign, but HTML web viewers
    can be embedded to provide additional dynamic features to a solution.
    The largest part of the creation process will be very budget friendly and
    the dynamic parts of the app can still be developed in HTML5.
    In the end the app will be ready in a much shorter time frame.

    System Requirements
    Twixl Publisher installs as a plug-in in:
    • Adobe InDesign CC 2015, CC 2014, CC, CS6 on OS X or on Windows
