CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA (November 2011) – Ivy Publications, publishers of AlbemarleFamily, the Charlottesville Welcome Book, and Locally Charlottesville, is proud to announce the launch of an enhanced digital edition for smart phones, tablets, desktop and laptop computers. The digital edition, made available by local digital publisher CatStone Press, has engaging, interactive media for users to explore, including live links that click-through to websites, the integration of social media tools and the ability to easily share stories electronically with friends. Digital editions have the added benefit of being the greenest option to experience your favorite Ivy Publications products. Not to mention that the digital edition is available before the print publication hits newsstands.

Users of the digital edition can easily flip through the electronic pages of the publication or scan through thumbnail-sized images in a slideshow.

Readers can even crop just a portion of a page and print it or save an image of it for later. Adjacent to the high-quality images of the electronic edition, is the new social media dashboard, where users can click Like to become part of the Ivy Publications Facebook communities, view recent postings on Facebook walls, and sign-up for helpful Ivy Publications newsletters that highlight the area’s best events. The digital edition also lets readers shop right from the pages of the electronic edition with the help of live links in product spotlights and advertising. In addition, readers have access to the Ivy Publications digital archive, where readers can explore back issues for particular topics using the search bar within any digital issue.
