This month, Professional Roofing is pleased to announce the launch of its digital edition, which is available in the Apple App Store and Android Market. Our goal is to continue to provide you with quality content while enhancing your overall experience.
The app is free to anyone in the roofing industry and allows you to view the entire magazine on your tablet. After you download the app, the current edition will appear in your Newsstand or Bookshelf, and future issues will automatically be sent to your device. When you subscribe to the digital edition, past issues also will be archived to your device.
The digital edition will feature exclusive content (such as additional photos and video), include animation and sound, be interactive and allow you to access advertisers' information instantaneously. In addition, all links within articles will be live, and readers can share content (pages or entire articles) via Facebook, Twitter or email.
To subscribe to the online edition, current subscribers to the print edition only will need to provide some basic information. New subscribers will be asked to complete a brief subscription form. Print editions of the magazine will continue to be mailed to current subscribers.
The debut of Professional Roofing's digital edition marks the first phase of NRCA's plan to offer its many publications in digital form. NRCA will launch its standalone app later this year. Through NRCA's app, members will be able to access technical documents, such as The NRCA Roofing Manual, electronically share details and watch training videosall on the tablet of their choice.
We encourage you to try the digital edition and let us know what you think.
Ambika Puniani Bailey is editor of Professional Roofing and NRCA's associate executive director of communications and production.
