Graphicly has announced it will be retiring their range of comic book reading applications this week, with the aim of helping publishers and creators get their story seen. Concentrating on their new Digital Distribution Platform, which enables content creators and publishers to easily upload and convert their publications digitally.
Enabling publishers and content creators to market their goods across multiple platforms, such as Kindle, NOOK, and iBooks stores to name few. Moving Graphicly away from owning their own store based applications to providing tools for creators to publish their work.
If you’ve already bought applications or comics for Graphicly, you will still be able to read all the comics you’ve purchased, and they are also accessible from the Graphicly website or using the Graphicly Facebook app.
“In challenging ourselves to think broader and wider, we stumbled on a very simple idea: the best place to sell books is in a bookstore. It’s an idea that’s worked for hundreds of years in the real world, so why not extend that to the digital world. Additionally, with close to a hundred million installs of Kindle, iBooks, Nook and others (and not to mention the close to a billion Facebook users) it makes complete sense to provide a platform for publishers and creators to take advantage of those native marketplaces”
