Briefly: Aquafadas and Kobo magazine collaboration, new Sonos app
Digital e-magazing software publisher <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/309760==http://http://www.aquafadas.com/" rel='nofollow'>Aquafadas</a> and e-reader maker <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/309761==http://store.kobobooks.com/en-us/" rel='nofollow'>Kobo</a> have begun collaborating, in light of Aquafadas' cloud-based eZine publishing offering. The Aquafadas Cloud Authoring platform allows Kobo to digitize magazines on a mass-focused level, and has done so for more than 200 titles and a total of over 7,000 issues. <br><br />

<br />
Cloud Authoring automates the complexities associated with digitizing printed magazines for distribution to smartphones, e-readers and tablets. By converting a PDF into a digital format, coding and development by publishers is not required. Additionally, elements such as interactive tables of contents and guided reading features -- which allows readers to move more fluidly through content via tapping to navigate from one column to the next -- can also be included. More information about the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/309762==http://www.aquafadas.com/en/digital-publishing/cloud-authoring/" rel='nofollow'>Cloud Authoring</a> publishing platform can be found on Aquafadas' website. <br />

Sonos has <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/309766==http://blog.sonos.com/news/new-sonos-app/" rel='nofollow'>announced</a> the release of its latest app update intended for its speaker system, featuring the ability to control music content accessible through other services. Now available for both iOS and Android, Sonos is a music player and aggregator that currently offers exploration of 38 music streaming services worldwide, such as Songza, Hype Machine, and more.<br />
<br />
One window provides a quick search function, which can find content by artist, song title, radio station and more, with results displaying various versions of a song amongst the results. Playlists can blend tracks from music services with one's iTunes library, and the new Now Playing screen features one-touch control. Multi-room playing is now enabled, and an alarm function is also available. Sonos v 5.0 is compatible with iOS 6.0 and later, and Android 2.1 and later, and can be downloaded from <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/309767==https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/id293523031?mt=8" rel='nofollow'>iTunes</a> and <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/309768==https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sonos.acr&hl=us" rel='nofollow'>Google Play</a>. <br />
