Tizra's Mobile Publishing Software Helps You Tap the Fast-Growing Mobile Audience with Responsive Templates

We are happy to report that Tizra’s mobile publishing software now offers responsive design templates for publishers who want to get started quickly with a standardized site design, yet also want to support the wide variety of devices their audience is using to search for, purchase, and consume content.

Combined with the mobile reading interfaces which Tizra has had in place for more than a year, the new templates enable publishers to create a fully mobile optimized user experience with no design customization.


Why Is This Important?


In the three short years since tablets first came on the market in 2010 with the introduction of the first-generation iPad, their popularity has grown to the point that now one third of American adults now own a tablet computer (Pew Research.) During the same time, we have seen the introduction of scores of smartphones, with smartphone penetration surpassing 59 percent, with 141 million U.S. owned smartphones (comScore.)

According to research presented by Goodreads at O’Reilly’s Tools of Change conference earlier this year, 37 percent of those smartphone owners surveyed read on their device, while 86 percent of tablet owners read on their device. With all this content being consumed over so many devices, how is a publisher to keep up with all the devices, operating systems, and screen sizes?

The answer is mobile responsive design.  With responsive websites, the layout and content adapts automatically based on the size of the screen it is being viewed on, including desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones. By adapting both the layout and what content is shown, depending on the device, publishers are able to provide their audience with a better user experience.

Tizra’s Mobile Responsive Design Templates

Tizra Publisher now offers website templates that utilize mobile responsive design to deliver a great user experience across a wide range of devices.  These templates have been extensively cross-platform tested to ensure a superb user experience.  Each template contains all the components necessary to create a complete publication website.  Using Tizra’s mobile responsive design templates essentially future-proofs your site against the continuously changing technology landscape of new devices, operating systems, and formats -- allowing you to focus on your core competency, your content.

At Tizra, we are committed to helping publishers go digital faster, and with greater control over your brand, audience and content.  Mobile responsive design is one critical checkbox on the list of features that make the Tizra platform the choice of leading publishers.

2018 Tizra User Summit: What We Learned by Meeting Our Customers Where We Are

They say you should "meet your customers where they are." Well, for Tizra's 4th annual user conference we decided to take a chance and do the opposite. Instead of going to Chicago or DC, where Tizra customers are concentrated, we bet on hosting in our home town of Providence, RI. It's not that we don't love Chicago and DC, but we really felt we could do something special with the home field advantage. As it turns out, we were right.

The Tizra user community is a silo-busting mix of creatives, technologists, content strategists and executives, who share the goal of building, engaging and generating value from audiences with digital content. For this crowd, we didn't want a sterile conference facility. We felt that by giving them a place they could really connect with, we'd help them connect with each other. Providence, with its vibrant tech and design scene, walkable downtown, and non-traditional venues, provided just the funky catalyst we were looking fo…

New Mobile-Optimized Template Simplifies Site Design

Pre-designed templates are increasingly popular as a quick way to get new Tizra sites launched, or to refresh the design of an existing site.  A key driver in both cases is keeping up with increasingly high user expectations for ease of use and visual appeal, particularly on mobile devices. To address these needs, we’ve released a major upgrade to our Bootstrap-based responsive design template. The new version makes it much easier to customize with your own colors and logo, improves mobile interaction with the latest version of the Bootstrap framework, and adds numerous other visual and usability refinements.

Existing Tizra customers can try it out now by selecting the “Bootstrap Responsive Template” in the PRESENTATION area. Or if you’d like to see a quick preview, take a look at this demo site… https://abedemo.tizrapublisher.com
