Pugpig does PDF! (And no it’s not what you think)


From the very beginning, we’ve always believed that using structured content and responsive design is the only efficient way to power really great mobile apps. And while that will never change, we are always looking for ways to make your lives easier.

So today we’re really excited to announce a whole new way to get your content into Pugpig Express – using your PDFs!

Yes, you heard right – and no, we haven’t gone and done a massive u-turn. We still believe PDFs make a terrible reading experience for mobile, but they are a great source of content. And now we’ve found a partner who has deep expertise in extracting that content from your PDFs. Using this service you’ll be able to reduce the effort in creating a fully responsive Pugpig edition down to just minutes.

All you have to do is send us your PDFs and we’ll take them, rip them, pull out all the content and use it to pre-populate your editions in Pugpig. Then you just log in, have a quick look and make any adjustments or additions you’d like to make before publishing. It’s that simple!

If you’re using Pugpig Express this service is totally plug and play – nothing else about your workflow or your apps will change, only the way in which your content feeds into Pugpig.

If you’d like to try out this new service just give us a shout and we’ll set you up.

And the cost is a snip at only £50 per edition* on top of your standard Pugpig license fee.

Come and give it a go!

*extra fees may apply for editions greater than 100 pages
