How we helped Phaidon consolidate 80 apps into a single custom app

The team at MagLoft has been amazing to work with. Due to their ability to create custom solutions, they were able to come up with a very clever way to convert and synchronize all of our content from 80+ apps into a single master app. I would highly recommend MagLoft for any custom development job that involves mobile apps!

Benefits of Working with MagLoft for your Custom App Development

We love custom development projects and look forward to speaking with you soon.

Project Management Done For You

For each custom development project you engage with us we will provide you with extensive descriptions, timelines and progress reports. We will usually always have a few rounds of early feedback to make sure the solution is exactly as you described.

We take a lot of pride in being able to deliver custom solutions at competitive prices delivered above expectations and on time.

Small and Agile Startup Team

We understand that for clients a custom development project is a very important undertaking. We will always make sure that the goals are clear and that you are kept up to date every step of the way.

We are very passionate about delivering custom solutions as we know they can deliver solutions to critical and unique challenges that you face.

We are always very available and you will never feel like you have to go through a chain of command to get things done.

Rapid Development and Prototyping

Your custom development project will never be based on a project starting from scratch. This is great for your budget and your timeline. We have a lot of existing codebases, modules and features ready to be designed and tweaked for your custom solution.

We are also able to quote extremely competitive pricing for your custom development if it can be re-used for existing MagLoft publishers. This can lower the costs even more.

7 Years of Digital Publishing Experience

We have helped hundreds of clients take advantage of digital and mobile publishing with our solutions. We have seen and worked with brands and clients from many different industries and with different needs. We know how to first understand your situation and then propose a solution.

Full Development & Support Team

We understand that publishers today don’t usually have in-house specialists for mobile app development, App Store management and QA team for continuous app testing and updates. This is why you will have a massive benefit from leveraging our existing team of experts to manage all of the tech and support for your mobile publishing efforts.

Customer Support

We are proud to have our customers and partners rate our customer support as high as they do. We believe in mutually beneficially partnerships and it’s in our best interest that you receive the best support you can get.

Examples of Custom Development Modules Created for Clients

No custom development project is too advanced or difficult for us. Below are a few examples of what we have developed for clients.

Event Based Photo-Sharing Module

We love to see clients think outside the box and look at Mobile publishing apps as more than “just” content. One of our large insurance clients needed to expand their internal communication apps built with MagLoft, to include features that support small events.

Our client would frequently host small events for teams and they wanted a way for event participants to interact with each other. So we built a photo-sharing module for their apps.

This allowed event participants to take photos during events and share them in the app with other participants. Event administrators would review each photo submitted through a custom section built into their MagLoft portal.

Convert Interactive Adobe Content to HTML

One of our largest clients came to us with a new challenge. They had been creating content in InDesign for years, using Adobes folio format. This was a great content choice at the time as it allowed them to create a lot of interactive content types.

However, since they now wanted to migrate away from Adobes expensive and rigid app solution, they needed help converting all their content as they had invested a lot of time and energy and needed to re-use this content.

So we looked at several options and finally decided to create a unique content converter for our client. We were able to create a prototype within a week which did a great job and soon after we were able to convert all their folio content to HTML content which they could use anywhere.

We took particular care in making sure that all existing interactive additions to their content was converted 100% to HTML.

Structured Data Converted to HTML Page Design

One of our clients came to us with a very unique challenge. They had 80+ city guide apps live in App Stores and they needed these converted into a single app. The challenge was taking their existing content, and converting it to a responsive HTML format.

Luckily the client had all their content in a structured format (think spreadsheet with columns and types of data) which enabled MagLoft to create a special converter that would feed all the structured data into pre-designed content templates based on the type of data.

This allows the client to seamlessly convert all their existing content (and there was a lot) into HTML and a single app.

WordPress + WooCommerce Integration

WordPress is the most popular CMS in the world, so no wonder a lot of publishers rely on WordPress to power their websites. One of the custom development requests we received was to create a smooth integration between MagLoft and WooCommerce for orders online.

We decided that a custom WordPress Plugin was the best approach for this, and would also allow the client to remain in a lot more control. Today they can create subscriptions and products to sell via WordPress and WooCommerce and then also integrate with MagLoft so purchased items are available in Mobile Apps in addition to online.

Augmented Reality Module

One of our clients needed integration to an AR (Augmented Reality) feature to complement their print magazine. The MagLoft team was able to create an integration with the client’s preferred choice of AR provider within a few days.

MagLoft added an additional button to the Mobile Apps menu bar which would allow the readers to trigger the AR module and use their app to scan a QR code that would trigger an animation etc.

The integration was completed with a special section in the client’s MagLoft publishing portal, from where they could manage the different AR content pieces and URL’s.

Pricing

Please get in touch with us if you have a custom development project you would like us to quote. We do not have listing pricing for custom development projects as they vary a great deal. One requirement for custom development is our Business plan. We don’t currently accept custom development projects for any of our other plans.

Frequently Asked Questions

We love questions! If you don’t find an answer to yours below please contact us here.

This depends largely on the scope of the project and is hard to give an example of. However, we prioritise custom development projects and are usually able to get started within one to three weeks depending on how quickly we can come to agreement of features and expectations.

It is very hard for us to give examples as each project is calculated on a per project basis. There are a number of factors that go into the quotation such as available existing code, complexity, timeline, integration with external systems, reusability for existing MagLoft customers and more. Please book a 15 minute exploration call with our team to allow us to give you a better quotation for your project.

We will make sure that any custom integration or development is kept up to date and functioning as long as it’s in our our circle of influence. Your Business subscription will also help cover some of the maintenance and support for your custom development.

If an integration to a third party stops working because the third party no longer supports this then there is not much we can do. 

We can certainly help with adding more integrations to your existing app. We also have a MagLoft SDK which can be added to your existing app to extend capabilities and cater for content distribution. Please contact us for more details on this.

Once all parties are in consensus on the project details such as scope, deliverables, timeline and price, then we can get started and payment will commence. We will ask for a 50% payment at project start and a 50% payment at project completion once everything has been tested and approved from your side.
