What does The Magazine App package include?

App Creation + Custom Branding
Your app will come to life after a one­-on-­one planning session with us. We’ll cover off on exactly what your app will include and what it will look like. Your app will be designed to match your magazine’s branding – you provide us with the colours, fonts, images and logo, and we’ll make sure your app looks amazing. (Need graphic design help? We recommend ​Raspberry Stripes.​)

Fact Sheets
You will receive a suite of fact sheets covering off on all you need to know about having an app. The fact sheets will step you through things like how to set up an Apple Developer account, what graphics to provide, how to send us your back catalog of issues for inclusion, plus how to access your app analytics and send push notifications.

The Tech Stuff
We’ll be taking care of all the technical aspects of setting up your app in the App Store ­ and best of all we’ll continue this support for the duration of your app license. Once your app is live we will still be taking care of any iOS updates required and adding each new magazine edition. You’ll be totally supported!

  • "I knew I wanted to get Raspberry Magazine into the app store and out to more wonderful readers, but I had no idea how. I enquired with a few people and companies and the verdict was clear: it was WAY out of my price range. I'd pretty much conceded it would never happen, when I was lucky enough to meet Jess from The Tree of Apps, and through our conversation I told her my predicament. She was kind enough to take me on - and the rest was history!

    Jess and Joel have created my dream app, and I couldn't be more delighted. They're fun to work with, supportive, responsive, knowledgeable and happy to hold your hand through all the technical bits. There's no way I could have done this without them, and it truly has felt like friends working together rather than a developer - client situation.

    If you want to get your magazine or digital publication into the app store, don't hesitate - these are the guys for the job."

FAQs

I’ve heard apps are great for business, is that right?
You’re totally right, apps are great for business. With more and more people spending more and more of their times on their phones or tablets, having an app is the best way to stay visible. A magazine app in particular is an awesome way to make the subscription and reading process as easy as possible for your readers ­ the easier the process, the more readers you’ll get on board!

An app is a seriously great way to get your magazine into new hands (because you’ll be appearing on the Newsstand) and to ensure your business is staying on the edge of technology.

What’s not to love?!

How long will it take for my magazine app to be built and ready to rock and roll?
Once you click that Buy Now button you can expect to see your app in the App Store within just a month!

To make things as speedy as possible you will need to apply up for an Apple Developer account as soon as possible (for an individual this can be instant, but a business application can take up to two weeks) and organise your branding elements (fonts, images, logo etc) to be sent to us. Don’t worry, we’ve got fact sheets to take you through these steps!

The actual design and development of the app will take one to two weeks, followed by the app approval process, which takes about a week.

Are there any other costs associated with publishing a magazine app?
As mentioned previously, you will need to sign up for an Apple Developer account. This is $99 USD per membership year. We’ve got a fact sheet dedicated to this process, so you’ll feel totally supported.

Do I need to know code or any other tech stuff?
No way! We’ve got your back for all that. All you have to do is supply your magazine in PDF or HTML formats.

Do you offer ongoing support?
Absolutely. The Tree of Apps will support you and your app from development to implementation to maintenance.

Who owns my app? You, me or Apple?
You own the rights to your app on the App Store and we own the source code. Put simply we are licensing the app to you.

What percentage of my sales will Apple take?
Apple will take 30%, as it does with any other app in the App Store.

How do I get paid for my magazines?
Apple will pay directly into your bank account each month once you’ve reached the minimum payout threshold (the minimum amount differs for each country). Apple will also take care of any tax requirements.

Will my magazine also be showcased on Android devices?
Unfortunately your magazine won’t be available on Android devices but we are working on creating an add-on to your license so you can have your magazine app on both platforms.

Do you support French/Spanish/Japanese/any other language?
Look out for multi­-language functionality, it’s coming soon!

I want my magazine app to stand out from the masses ­ will it look unique?
It sure will. We use your magazine’s branding to totally customise your app.

Can I add a feature that is not currently in the Magazine App package?
We are constantly adding new features and functionality to the package and make these updates for free as they roll out. However, if there is a particular feature you would like included immediately, let us know and we can sort it out for an additional cost.

I have a super specific idea for a custom app, is The Magazine App package right for me?
Hmmm, sounds like you know exactly what you want for your app, and this package might be a bit too limiting for you. Hop on over to our A​pp Creation ​page for more info on custom app development.
