On Thursday, February 21st, I was privileged to attend the Next Wave Tour event in Johannesburg, South Africa, organized by WoodWing partner APS.

Since the iPad was launched in April 2010, we at WoodWing have been at the forefront of the digital publishing revolution. We helped publishers from around the globe publish their content successfully to the various tablet platforms; first the iPad, then Android tablets (and phones) and to the iPhone as well. Hundreds of apps went live. In November 2011 we announced our digital publishing partnership with Adobe and by now the vast bulk of apps have been moved onto the Adobe DPS platform. But a major challenge remains: making money through advertising.
