The connection of ad servers or links with your social media activities are also important core functions of Eversify.

With Eversify you can automatically transfer data to your layout and editorial systems and you can publish them on all available tablets, smartphones or web browser as a newspaper or magazine based on HTML5 without making any compromises.
