Land & Sea Software

Modern Consumers Want Digital Products

Publishers of Guidebooks, Cookbooks, Magazines and Newspapers want to establish a digital presence so they can:
  • Provide an excellent user experience.

  • Lower printing and distribution costs.

  • Maintain content easily/regularly.

  • Display graphically intensive content.

  • Make content available without an internet connection.

  • Distribute proprietary content without worrying about piracy.

However, there is no clear path to establish a digital footprint that meets the requirements without a significant investment of time and money.

Challenges with Traditional Methods

Creating a body of digital content is not difficult, but selling  and distributing digital content in an easy to manage, scalable manner is a challenge that successful digital publishers invest significant sums to overcome with proprietary solutions:
  • Costs are uncertain and may require specialized staff.

  • Not mobile friendly and may require special hardware.

  • User experience suffers.

  • Content is difficult to copy protect.

  • Updating content or making corrections requires a new edition.

  • Version control becomes an issue.

The Land & Sea Method to Go Digital

We offer a revolutionary new system that enables publishers with minimal technical expertise to build a digital footprint quickly, with known costs and without incurring Digital Rights Management expenses. One price buys everything you need to distribute your content in your own app on the Apple App store and Google Play Store.

Native high performance & highly configurable mobile apps

Scalable real-time cloud database – minimal overhead

Content/configuration portal deployable through any browser

  • How long does your system take to implement?
    Set up is very simple. You can be loading content into you own app within 24 hours.
  • How long does it take to load content into our platform?
    The time will vary depending on the size of a body of work. As an example a 9-chapter, 300-page guidebook with 200 illustrations can be prepared in 2-3 days provided all of the content is readily available and organized for easy access. We will help with the first body of work.
  • Do I have to create content for each app separately?
    No, the central portal will format content for both apps. Similarly, changes in App layout will be propagated to both apps simultaneously.
  • How long does it take before a user can access purchased content?
    Speed will depend on the quality of the internet connection, but typically content will be available in less than 60 seconds from the completion of a purchase.
  • I have a large book, can I sell it by chapters?
    Yes you can sell it by individual chapters.
  • Do you support subscriptions?
    Yes our paywall permits you to sell content as a one-time purchase or as a renewing subscription. You can also sell the same content as a one-time purchase for one price and as a subscription at a different price.
  • Do you charge a commission on sales of products?
    The only commissions are paid to the app stores. All of the proceeds from the app stores are yours.
  • Are analytics available?
    Yes Google analytics are natively available through the apps. Analytics services are available for a fee.
  • Are forms supported?
    Yes, persons with the appropriate permission can create forms that can be embedded anywhere within the applications.
  • Why are mapping features important?
    We make it easy to portray data on a map, and permit scenarios such as a restaurant review could be linked to the restaurant location on the map which could then link to a recipe for their signature dish in a cookbook.
  • Is commenting available within the app?
    Yes the ability to add comments can be added by an administrator.
  • How do you prevent my content from being pirated?
    We do not use DRM or encryption to protect your content. Instead we use proprietary file structures that render data virtually useless outside of the apps which reconstruct the data into usable content.
