LONDON 4th December 2013
Digital publishing pioneers Exact Editions re-affirmed their position at the forefront of technological innovation in Newsstand apps today. In the latest of a series of firsts, Exact Editions have become the first and only company to utilise iBeacon technology in conjunction with Newsstand apps.
Announced as part of Apple’s iOS 7 release, iBeacon technology allows for iOS devices to receive signals based on their location. Whether this be used to offer location based access, or to market goods in a store, Exact Editions are leading the way in showing the massive potential for location targeted selling on an iOS device. As part of this, each Exact Editions Newsstand app can now be accessed based on proximity to a pre-programmed iBeacon, a small device the size of a coin.
What the iBeacon lacks in size, they more than make up for in effectiveness. Just one iBeacon can enable premium access to an app within a 15 meter radius. Using venue WiFi, or 3G/ 4G networks, an iOS user can gain instant full access to a magazine app usually only available to subscribers. Once the user exits the range of the beacon, they will revert to being a normal user and be invited to subscribe to the app, to read further.
This latest step in the ByPlace™ revolution brings together the promotional tools of Geo-location based access as previously announced, with revolutionary iBeacons technology. Allowing publishers to sell magazine access to specific locations and venues. From coffee shop to concert hall, Starbucks to stadiums, any venue is now a promotional tool, or a customer for a publisher.
This unique promotional and sales tool, allows the publisher of the magazine to sell subscriptions two-fold, once to a venue offering the magazine, and once to the end user once they leave the iBeacon zone. With ByPlace™, Exact Editions have revolutionised the way that magazines can promote and sell their digital products.
Daryl Rayner, Managing Director of Exact Editions said: “ iBeacons have tremendous potential for publishers. They offer a discrete, low cost way for publishers to do something they’ve never before been able to, market their product digitally based on location. At Exact Editions we are delighted to once again be at the forefront of innovation with Newsstand apps.”
LONDON 5th November 2013
Digital magazine experts, Exact Editions, have introduced a revolutionary new technology for magazine apps. The latest ByPlace™ technology from Exact Editions means Newsstand apps are now accessible based on the location of the device user; for the first time Newsstand apps know where they are. Harnessing geo-location technology, publishers, venues or promoters can give full access to a magazine app, based on a location or venue, whether it be a stadium, conference hall, coffee shop, plane or train.
From full access to the Literary Review in the British Library to browsing international politics in Le Monde Diplomatique on an iPad in the Eurostar waiting room at Gare Du Nord, app access can now be fully utilised by publishers. ByPlace™ lets venues offer exciting new products for their customers, as well as giving publishers precise promotional opportunities. The ability to target, by location, promotional app access to a magazine, is a tool that publishers have never before been able to wield. Not only can publishers give ByPlace™ access which includes full unfettered access to the magazine app, but once downloaded the app will remain on the device with limited access, presenting the user with the opportunity to become a full subscriber once they have left the ByPlace™ venue. Whether it be the Emirates Stadium for The Gooner, or the Royal Opera House for Opera Magazine, with ByPlace™ any earthly location is transformed in to a potential promotional opportunity.
For a three week period a number of high profile magazines, will be available via their app, based on location targeted access for the first time. If you are sipping an espresso in the Vatican you can read The Tablet on your tablet, or why not try reading the 21 year Dazed & Confused archive during a break at the Victoria & Albert Museum. For the next three weeks, Exact Editions and their publishing partners will be running a series of ByPlace™ promotional trials.
The following magazine apps will be available at the venues noted from 5th - 26th November.

Literary Review was founded in Edinburgh in 1979 by Dr Anne Smith, head of the English Department at Edinburgh University. She created a lively, intelligent literary magazine for people who love reading, but hate academic and intellectual jargon.
From the start, Literary Review plugged in to the best and most exciting current writing. The reviewers are usually authors themselves, not just critics. In the 1980s, the new owner, Naim Attallah, secured award-winning journalist Auberon Waugh as editor. For fourteen years Auberon Waugh led the magazine and gave it the high profile it has today.
Nancy Sladek, who has been at Literary Review for ten years, is the current Editor. The monthly magazine is recognised as being intelligent, informative, and witty. It attracts the best writers in the country, many of them experts in their fields.

Just My Type is a book of stories about fonts. It examines how Helvetica and Comic Sans took over the world. It explains why we are still influenced by type choices made more than 500 years ago, and why the T in the Beatles logo is longer than the other letters. It profiles the great originators of type, from Baskerville to Zapf, as well as people like Neville Brody who threw out the rulebook. The book is about that pivotal moment when fonts left the world of Letraset and were loaded onto computers, and typefaces became something we realized we all have an opinion about. And beyond all this, the book reveals what may be the very best and worst fonts in the world — and what your choice of font says about you.
Profile was founded in 1996 to publish stimulating non-fiction in a wide range of fields, including history and current affairs, business and economics, science and biography, with a sprinkling of humour. We also publish all The Economist Books and have done so since we started.
