Reader’s Digest has continued to innovate in digital publishing, staying on top of changes in the device industry. Since the beginning, the Reader’s Digest team has endeavored to be on as many tablets as possible. The Kindle Fire HD was released on September 14th, and it comes as no surprise that Reader’s Digest was available for the device on day one.
The print version of Reader’s Digest is the size of a paperback, so the content easily translates to the 7-inch screen size. The advantage of the tablet publication is that the reader can still lean back and consume content, but also take quizzes and get immediate feedback on their answers, share photos on Pinterest, and watch videos that enhance the story.
Hardware manufacturers continue to release tablets of varying sizes and expanding capabilities, creating better opportunities for readers and publishers. The Adaptive Design Tools in InDesign have been developed to allow publishers to publish to multiple screen sizes, reaching more readers on their preferred mobile devices. Reader’s Digest is proof that the ability to publish high definition photos and video with Dolby Digital sound is an opportunity for publishers to create enhanced experiences for readers.
