The Twixl Platform

Create > Present > Build > Distribute

    4 Components:

    • Twixl Publisher InDesign Plug-in

    • Twixl iOS & Android App (Review & Share)

    • Twixl Publisher macOS Builder App

    • Twixl Distribution Platform + API's

    (plus Twixl Viewer Classic (iOS / Android) to view
    classic Adobe InDesign-based single-issue-apps only;
    not multi-issue apps)

Twixl Publisher - Overview - 4 Components - Picture

    For content creation, Twixl Publisher offers two approaches:

    • the pixel-perfect design approach 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 InDesign layout.

    You can also decide to create your articles with the HTML tool of
    your choice (such as Canvasflow) 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;
    this interface is called 'browse pages'.

    Browse pages let you introduce your content to your end-users 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 end-users through your content.

    Review your complete app with Twixl App;
    i.e. the browse pages interface and all content pages,
    plus Adobe InDesign, HTML and PDF content all together.

    While Twixl Viewer Classic lets you preview Adobe InDesign content only,
    the Twixl App provides the ability to review the complete interface of
    your app and the different browse pages, in addition to the InDesign,
    HTML or PDF based articles in the app.

    Extra app reviewer users can be added to the account on
    the Twixl Distribution Platform account, so you can allow clients and
    colleagues to provide feedback.

    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 as HTML on mobile devices
    with modern web browsers.

    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 apps and app content in the different
    app stores or in-house, supports in-app purchases and subscriptions,
    manages who gets access to which of your apps and content,
    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
    end-users 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 end-user 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 app,
    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.

    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 end-users.

    This is done through your account on the Twixl Distribution Platform.

    The Twixl Distribution Platform will provide analytics reports
    on how 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 apps 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 apps in-house you would only need
    the Twixl Distribution Platform, and your agency could use Twixl Publisher
    to create your enriched in-house apps for you.
    But if you want to to be able to both create and publish you need both.

    That’s what the Twixl Distribution Platform is all about.

    for managing users, content and multi-issue apps created with
    Twixl Publisher in App Store Kiosks.
