Not only is there a need to construct suitable apps and interfaces for each end-user device format, but the physical re-versioning for each format for every issue is non-trivial too, and relies heavily on a very flexible content management system.
So the first stage we've had to go through was renewing our CMS and putting all the procedures in place, while at the same time designing and bug-fixing the interfaces, and then start generating and fine-tuning the content.
All of this swallows up huge amounts of cash, time and staff effort, all of which are inherently in short supply to such a small company as SOS. I think few people realise quite how compact this company really is because our magazine compares so strongly to the competition from the likes of, say, the huge Future empire.
So yes, it's frustrating for all of us that it takes a while to progress these kinds of projects. But we are getting there and the final results will be very good. Hang in there!
