Over the past few months, we've received several inquiries from our customers asking for crisper images and texts. Well, you spoke and we listened. Our mad scientists gave their best shot to enhance the readability of your publications, and we think you're going to like the difference.
We’ve been working hard to give you more control over the viewer in which your publications are displayed. Last month we made it possible for you to brand your publications, and with this update you can enable or disable specific features such as sharing or print. We've also released a search feature (beta) so people can search through the text in your publications.
On March 14th, 2014, our first customer in China went live with their new digital catalogs. Seeing our product used on the other side of the world was a moment of great joy and pride for us, even more so considering the technical hurdles we needed to overcome to make this happen. But what were these issues and how did our mad scientists solve them? If you're dealing with Chinese translations for your app or you're just curious to see how we made Publitas compatible for Chinese use, you should check out this post.

Are they used more by men or women? Do digital catalogs perform differently on different device categories? Read on to find out.
Back in December, we introduced hotspots with adjustable areas and icons. Speaking to our customers, it's become clear to us that many of them either don't know that it's possible to turn on hotspot icons, or they don't understand why they should turn icons on. If either of these is true for you, you should read this post.
We’ve been working hard on bringing you a ton of new improvements, notably adding the option to change the default mouse-over and call-to-action texts. Read on to find out what other stuff is new.
You'd be surprised to find out how many people are using their smartphones in-store, and even more so what they use them for. According to the latest eCustomerServiceIndex (eCSI) results from IMRG and eDigitalResearch, the number of people using their smartphones in-store is increasing. More than two thirds of consumers (70%) are walking into stores and bringing their mobile devices with them. To help you serve these customers better, we've described four ways you can optimize the in-store experience for mobile users.
We've been working hard to improve the hotspot editor and make it feel much more responsive. The latest changes make the editor easier to use and will help you produce your catalogs more efficiently. As usual, we’ve added some new features too. You can now reorder products within a product hotspot, and you can customize the hotspot mouse-over text. It's now also much easier to add products to your hotspots using the product feed.
