LONDON, October 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Powered by KnowledgeView's Publish live technology

KnowledgeView is proud to release Apple Newsstand support for a list of leading newspapers including the well-known Palestinian daily Al Quds of Jerusalem and many prominent publications for Saudi Research & Publishing (SRPC) such as Asharq Al-Awsat, Al-Riyadiah, Arab News and Al-Eqtissadiah.

Al Quds and SRPC have thus joined globally leading digital publications on the Apple's Newsstand. Subscribers will enjoy being automatically updated with the latest issues on their virtual shelves. Push notifications are included to alert on new content.

Furthermore, a lot of features embedded in digital issues, which normally take time to load, will be loaded in the background and help ease the waiting factor. Publishers can choose the frequency of subscription (from weekly to annual) or purchase individual issues. These features are expected to immediately increase subscriptions and purchases, and allow publishers to have better information on readers' usage of their digital editions.

"We are glad to make Al Quds available on Apple Newsstand, part of our drive to substantially improve digital services to our clients globally. We have been working with KnowledgeView on our digital editorial for years and we are glad to extend this to advanced publishing services on the Apple, Android and other mobile platforms," - Ziad Abu Zalaf, Publisher Al Quds.

"Supporting Newsstand required our Publish live technology to manage tens of thousands of automatic downloads every day for our clients without fail, not a small undertaking, of which we are proud, and is part of our commitment to provide the most advanced publishing services to our valued clients," - Ali Al Assam, CEO, KnowledgeView
