Digital publishing vendor YUDU Media announced that it has launched a cross-platform self-publishing solution that enables users to create their own digital publications that are viewable on the web, iPad, and iPhone via custom-built branded apps. The company also announced that the availability of self-publishing applications for all other major ereaders and mobile devices will follow in the coming months.
YUDU's cross-platform solution utilizes fixed-page layouts as well as "rich view" capability, allowing content to be automatically reflowed and adapted to fit the size of each device.
YUDU Pro supports the Apple iPhone and iPad formats today with the purchase of custom-built apps. Support for the Barnes & Noble nook, Sony eReader, Android, Amazon Kindle, and others will follow shortly. YUDU will demonstrate its cross platform solution at the Periodical Publishers Association's (PPA) Annual Conference, taking place in London April 29.
