The increase in mobile devices like Tablets and Smartphones made most of our technical and social things to become digitized. One of the most important things in that category is the news readers. Even after personal computers and laptops become popular, many technical people and very few common people used these digital news apps but most of them preferred only the newspapers. As soon as this Smartphone era was started, everyone switched to digital magazines and news readers. Also, most of the companies have their own digital magazine nowadays. So, today I’ve come with a new web application called “Beacon”, which lets you easily create a digital magazine of your own within few minutes. Here’s how to do it.
To start with Beacon, you need to give your magazine a name and sign up with your email id. Once you complete the registration process, it will show you the options in the app. Here I’ve created a magazine named “BlogsDNA” and the initial step is to create the first issue. To do that click “Create New Issue” button near to your magazine name. By default, the app will create your first issue and you can start editing by using the options over there.
The first option “Manage Pages” will let you edit and manage all the pages in your magazine. From cover page to all the pages you have created will be available in the left panel. Also, you can add more pages using the option over there. For cover page, there will be a default image, you can also upload your own image in that window. To start with other pages, first choose the layout and choose the main image. That’s all give a title and add your content.
The options and the interface of the app is very simple and easy to understand. As soon as you make a change or finish a page, click the save button and preview the changes immediately. The text editor lets you choose different fonts, colors, images and much more. So, you can create a beautiful magazine without any fuss. There will be a black menu bar at the top which has the support, account settings and logout options.
In the account settings, apart from editing your profile, you can connect your Twitter and Facebook accounts to share the magazine with your friends. It is a premium application. The app comes with 30 days trial period. If you like the app, you can select a premium plan for $20/month for unlimited access. If you are looking for a simple web app to create a digital magazine, Beacon is worth giving a shot. Don’t forget to share your experience with us in the comments.
