Similarly, Issuu includes a Smart Recommendation engine that learns your reading patterns to offer you a personalized and regular stream of new content without needing to browse specifically for it. This way, the more you read, the more customized things you will receive. Moreover, if you just want to try new things, you can choose any publications from the wide variety of categories available, such as Design, Crafts, Art, Fashion, Business, and more.
How does it work?
Once you download and install Issuu on your mobile or tablet you will soon notice its interface is not so different from the online version. So if your first Issuu experience started on the web, you'll hardly notice the shift. There is no need to worry if you are a newbie, as Issuu is really easy to use. Its interface mainly consists of three modules: Feed, Explore and Stacks. Feed works in a similar way to Facebook’s wall. In Explore you can browse for magazines and catalogs by categories (Learning, Business, etc.) or just navigate through the options given based on the Smart Content Recommendations. Stacks allows you to group your favorite reads.
Issuu has a scrollable ribbon which displays your most recent reads; something that's really useful if you are immersed in several stories or articles at a time. This app has gestured-based controls, so starting to read a publication is as simple as tapping on it, and swiping left/right to turn the pages. Once you have selected the magazine or catalog in question, you will be able to Follow it, see how many likes it has and when it was last updated, or share it on social networks like Twitter.
Nevertheless, Issuu can be utilized in another, more active way, as a platform for publishing magazines online and a tool to exhibit your publications’ digital editions for free. The only thing you need to do is upload your content and the app will make it look and work perfectly online. If you own a blog or website you can even integrate your Issuu publications by embedding them with a short coding process.
