NEW YORK, Oct. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- For most magazine readers, the physical experience of flipping through glossy pages and tearing out the things you want to share - be it a photo of a room with that great couch you've been eyeing or a celebrity hairstyle or nail color that you want to try – is the part they love the most. Now, readers can experience the joy of clipping and sharing content in the digital world as well, with a new innovative feature from the MAZ (mazdigital.com) platform called "Clippings."
MAZ is a digital publishing platform that allows publishers to create and manage their own dynamic iPad apps, without the need for coding. The MAZ "Clippings" feature gives readers the tools (a set of "digital scissors") to directly clip any piece of content on the screen - using the touch of two fingers - and share it via email, Twitter, Facebook, and now Pinterest. The patent-pending "Clippings" feature doesn't exist anywhere else on the iPad, and apps created with MAZ are the only apps able to integrate directly with Pinterest in this way.
Current publications on the MAZ platform, including top name titles like Inc. Magazine and European publishing giant Hubert Burda Media, will have Clippings seamlessly updated to all their apps, with an instruction screen to raise awareness to new users.
Clippings will continue to evolve, with future versions featuring integration with additional social networks and other popular sharing methods.
