Publishing your own rich-media magazine app on the iOS App Store & Google Play has never been easier or more cost-effective.Is this for Me? Pricing How it Works Platform Tour
Even if you're an app / magazine publishing novice, we make getting your magazine app approved and listed in the App & Play Stores fast and easy.
With MagCast, you'll find it's possible to go from blank slate to fully published issue fast.
You'll also get access to MagCast Academy, our one-of-a-kind training that goes beyond basic magazine publishing software and "how to". Instead, it focuses on the business of magazine publishing to help you learn how to start and grow a successful magazine.
Starting a magazine can seem like a big step, especially if you're new to the publishing business. Luckily, with MagCast you won't have to figure it out all on your own.
Unlike other platforms that expect you to figure it out on your own, MagCast gives you hands-on training in the magazine publishing business.
Through the MagCast Academy you'll get the know-how you need. Combine that with the platform itself AND our proprietary software and technology, you'll have everything you need to go from novice to publisher... fast.
Here's a (small) sample of the many publications that rely on the MagCast. Believe it or not, your magazine can look this good, too! (It's easy to see why so many publishers call us the best magazine publishing platform anywhere.)
Self-publishing success starts with connecting with your readers, and you can't get more connected than by having your app on their mobile device.
Unlike a blog, website, or email list, your app icon lives on their device home screen.
With a self-healing network of nearly 300 nodes on six continents, your magazine content is always online for readers no matter where they are in the world.
Unlimited readers, downloads, and bandwidth included with every membership.
Unlike other platforms that take a (hefty) cut of your subscription and issue sales on the Apple App Store and Google Play, with MagCast the net revenue goes straight to you.
You pay only the store fees every app pays, nothing more. The rest is yours to keep.
To help you get the look from your magazine you want, the platform supports both PDFs and Word Documents.
Create them with any tool you'd like and import them into your MagCast dashboard.
Then sit back as the platform brings your files to life as magazine pages.
Whatever the reason—even if you just want to know best practices for a certain task, our support team is ready to help.
You can reach us through email, live chat, or through a private screenshare session.
And, there's also a searchable help / knowledgebase, too.
MagCast is developed and maintained by U.S.-based developers.
You can count on us to keep the platform and your app current with the latest updates from Apple and Google.
And, because it's a web-based SaaS, your online publishing tools are always at your fingertips.
Whatever you're trying to do with your magazine, MagCast has the documentation to help you do it.
You'll find the step-by-step How-to Tutorials easy to follow and the knowledge and insight gleaned from the MagCast Academy worth its weight in gold.
With all kinds of tools built into the platform like our proprietary One-Tap-App-Installer™ links, MagCast has the features to engage and expand your readership.
Combine these tools with the outreach strategies from the Academy for real alchemy
From YouTube to Vimeo to opt-in forms and surveys with MagCast you can incorporate all kinds of modern, rich media and other web-based content right into your magazine.
Or, if you want to take readers to content outside your magazine, you can do that, too.

While most of our publishers' readers are in North America, Europe, and Australia, our publishers call the entire world their playground.
Choosing a digital magazine app platform can seem like a daunting task full of choices, but really there's no contest: there's only one MagCast.
Real Readers. Not Bots.
