Examples Of Custom Development 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, allowing them to create many interactive content types.
However, since they now wanted to migrate away from Adobe's expensive and rigid app solution, they needed help converting all their content as they had invested a lot of time and energy to re-use it.
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 ensuring that all existing interactive additions to their content were converted 100% to HTML.
Structured Data Converted to HTML Page Design
One of our clients came to us with a 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.

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 an exploration call with our team to allow us to give you a better estimate for your project.
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.
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.
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 MagLoft 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 we can help remove or replace that functionality.
