#1 Digital-first output

Layout your project digital-first. Get your assets on the page with the great tools of PubCoder. If you have a well-formed, level based and styled InDesign file don't worry, PubCoder has the perfect tool for you.

#2 Interactivity like no other

PubCoder lets you bring your ebooks to life. Create animations, image galleries, videos with ease. Our development team has created a unique set of tools that allows you to exploit the typical gestures of a mobile device: touch, swipe, pinch, shake, tilt: for each of these events you can trigger an animation, a sound, a video and all sorts of animated effects.

#3 Editing read-aloud made easy

Stressed out with SMIL file and  Audacity tagging? Use built-in Read-aloud editor to synchronize your audio with text. You simply have to a) decide how to split your text into blocks; b) listen to the audio and press on the space bar when the audio file has reached the block...pretty much like karaoke!

#4 EPUB3 fixed-layout compliant

When you are ready to publish a checker will tell you if your file is a well-formed EPUB3 and compliant to device-driven rules.

#5 Do once publish to many, in one single project file

No need to duplicate your project file - with data loss, large files, and confusion. All you need to do is to add a new Workspace within your project, based on the new format or language, and then press Publish. That's it!

#6 Export your project as ebook AND app 

Get your content on (almost) any store, both as an ebook and as a native App for mobile devices. You can publish your project as:

  • EPUB and then deliver it on iBookstore, Kobo, Google Play Books
  • MOBI/KF8 for Amazon
  • iOS App for the App Store
  • Android App for Google Play Store

#7 Exploit the infinite web

Looking for fonts? No problem: PubCoder lets you consult and choose among the thousands of free-rights managed fonts. Same thing with images and icons: PubCoder lets you search and download the great The Noun Project archive.

#8 Continuous R&D

New digital formats, releases and features from the standards, new devices: PubCoder is firmly compliant to its commitment of having a tool always up-to-date of what is out there.

#9 Stable and community-validated software

PubCoder was first released as a beta-free software in novembre 2013. After receiving feedbacks from more than 1500 users, in June 2014 the beta program was closed and the 1.0 stable version was launched.

#10 Licensing model tailored for digital publishing

License is based on period of time and number of users you want to use PubCoder. Once you have a license you can create as many outputs as you like, no limitations are applied.
