Creating an Electronic Catalog

Who doesn’t love to shop? Shopping with today’s technology is fun, fast and easy. If you have a product line that you want to market, what better way to do it than through an interactive mobile app? With so many tablet and smartphone users in the world today, mobile catalogs are a great way to reach your market. Mag+ can help you create a beautiful, interactive catalog that will truly showcase products to your customers. Our electronic catalog software begins with our InDesign plug-in.

Start your mobile catalog in InDesign. With the Mag+ plug-in you can beautifully display product images with A-Layer description text that scrolls over the image, or pop-up hot spots that reveal additional product information. Check out this instructional video on how to get started with layers.


Consumers love beautiful product images, true, but they really love to see a product in action! With the Mag+ tools you can easily integrate video into any catalog design. Here is a quick tutorial on how to integrate video.


Finally, the last crucial element you will need in your mobile catalog is a way for consumers to purchase your product. You can add simple links that drive consumers to your website for purchase with the Mag+ InDesign plug-in. It’s as easy as the click of a button. Watch below to see how it’s done.

Want to step it up a notch and include an eCommerce feature within your catalog app? We’ve got you covered there too! The Mag+ SDK allows you to take the shopping experience to a whole new level. You can build in custom shopping functionality like a shopping cart, favorites list and purchasing. You do the design and we will handle the distribution.  Click here for more information on the Mag+ SDK.
