SEATTLE, July 21, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Bluefire Productions, the leading developer of ebook reading apps for mobile devices, is bringing the elegance and sophistication of its mobile apps to Windows desktop and laptop users. With the newly released Bluefire Reader for Windows PCs, Windows desktop and laptop users can now enjoy Adobe Content Server (ACS) protected EPUB and PDF books in an application that’s designed for immersive onscreen reading—with the all of the powerful active reading features and display customization options they’ve come to expect from Bluefire apps.
Over 40 leading retailers, publishers, and enterprises worldwide deploy custom branded versions of Bluefire’s iOS and Android mobile apps. Like the company’s mobile apps, Bluefire Reader for Windows supports flexible branding options and up to two integrated web views. Customers can use the web views to integrate their store, user bookshelves, and marketing pages for a seamless content discovery and download experience that eliminates the need to manually manage Adobe Content Server .ascm files.
The new Windows app includes support for Bluefire’s recently released Page Sync Cloud Service. Users can now easily move between reading on their Windows PCs, Apple iOS devices, and Android devices—all without ever losing track of their current page.
The ability to track and analyze customer behavior is an essential tool in today’s ultra competitive business environment. Bluefire Reader for Windows extends the company’s Analytics Service to the desktop environment, giving customers everything they need to collect and analyze key app metrics across mobile and desktop use.
Micah Bowers, Bluefire’s CEO and Readium Foundation Board Member, noted that “The open standard EPUB format is beginning to evolve beyond the trade ebook market and is now being used in professional, education, and enterprise scenarios where desktop computers continue to play an important role. At the same time, the importance of mobile devices in these domains is growing rapidly. Our desktop app and mobile apps are tightly integrated through our cloud-based services. They enable our customers to distribute a wide spectrum of high value content types with the convenience and ease of use of the leading retail platforms, but they are doing so under their own brand, with a direct connection with their users, and the valuable feedback that comes from our Analytics Cloud Service.”
