"We’ve been publishing Street Photography Magazine for 5 years on the iOS (former Apple Newsstand) and through our WordPress site using a membership site plugin (not ideal for the magazine business). These were two separate platforms that required two different workflows to publish each month. The WordPress version was always easier to create than the iOS platform.

I always dreamed of creating a WordPress based platform that would push the content out automatically to both iOS and Android apps, but didn’t have the time or expertise to do it right.

Then I found the Zeen101 suite consisting of Leaky Paywall, UniPress and IssueM that does everything I wanted…all from one company. We worked together with the team to create new mobile apps and to tweak our existing WordPress content to look good on the mobile apps.

And we were able to continue using our existing theme.

Today we are able to publish monthly issues in a fraction of the time and we generate additional web traffic from our premium content with the metered paywall system similar to the big publishers like the New York Times and others."

In addition to the tech, these guys know and understand publishing."
