One of the challenges inherent in presenting large quantities of content is the great disparity in how users like to consume it-not to the mention the expanding list of content types. While you may not be able to please all of your users all of the time, there are some rules and trends that can help you create navigable, engaging, and beautiful apps that help spread your content to the mobile masses.

If you work in the digital content industry, you probably rely on dozens of tools to get your job done. As the list of available tools of the trade grows, it becomes more important to differentiate between the products that get the job done and the products that are identifying the trends impacting the industry and making sure that—to paraphrase hockey player Wayne Gretzky—they skate not to where the puck is, but to where it is going.
Here at EContent, we turned to our inboxes, to our coverage, and to our contributors to find out what those trendsetting products are in 2014. We looked across the spectrum, but we were especially heartened to see the number of tools aiming to help publishers deal with data, manage the total web experience, and find new ways to monetize content.
We hope that you find these tools as interesting and as potentially helpful as we do!
