Easily Create Your Own Full-Featured Magazine App

If You Can Imagine it, You Can Do it with MagCast.

Easy to Use

To help you get the look from your magazine you want, the platform supports both PDFs and Word Documents. Create them with any tool you'd like and import them into your MagCast dashboard. Then sit back as the platform brings your files to life as magazine pages.

Feature Rich

From YouTube to Vimeo to Facebook to other platforms and services, with MagCast you can incorporate all kinds of rich media and other web-based content right into your magazine. Or, if you want to take readers to content outside your magazine, you can do that, too.

Well Documented

Whatever you're trying to do with your magazine, MagCast has the documentation to help you do it. You'll find step-by-step How-to Tutorials plus an active Member's Forum where you can learn insider secrets from the thriving community of publishers.

Premium support

Whatever the reason—even if you just want to know best practices for a certain task, our support team is ready to help. You can reach us through email, live chat, or through a private screenshare session. And, there's also a searchable help / knowledgebase, too.

Marketing Tools

With 22 tools built into the platform from Facebook integration and email opt-in forms, to proprietary One-Tap-App-Installer™ links, MagCast has the features to engage and expand your readership. And, you can even grow it with the new Instant Audience Program.

Ongoing Development

MagCast is developed and maintained by U.S.-based developers. You can count on us to keep the platform and your app current with the latest updates from Apple and Google. And, because it's web-based SaaS, publishing your magazine only requires a web browser.

The Digital Magazine Publishing Platform

With support for you every step of the way, MagCast makes it possible to go from a blank slate to a fully published issue fast.

Your Magazine.

Your Profit.

Unlike other platforms that charge a percentage of sales or keep all your profit, with MagCast you set your prices and keep 100% of your money earned in iTunes and Play.

They're your subscribers, so you get to keep all of the profit ... as it should be.

How MagCast Works

Create article layouts as PDFs or Word Documents. Then, import them.

1. Create Your Content

Using either your favorite PDF creation tool or Microsoft Word, you create and layout your content.

2. Import

Upload your finished PDFs or Word Docs into MagCast.

The platform automatically places them as individual pages and numbers the pages for you as you go.

3. Insert Multimedia

Next, add any YouTube, Vimeo, other video links, embedded audio, or other content you're including with your articles.

4. Preview & Publish

Test your issue with the MagCast Publisher's Preview App. Then click "Publish" when you're ready for the world to see it.

The MagCast platform packages your content into a finished App and notifies the iTunes and Play stores that your content is available.

    It's up to you.

    As many as you want. There are no page number limits.

  • Can I publish secret/hidden/bonus content?

    Yes. You can easily restrict content or make it subscriber-only, whatever you choose.

    Yes. It's your magazine. If you want advertisers, get advertisers. If you want an ad-free magazine, have an ad-free magazine.

  • Are there separate fees depending on how many pages I publish?
