We've got your back

Writing Newsstand apps is a complex undertaking that requires juggling push notifications, content delivery, subscriptions, and in-app purchases before you can begin implementing the core functionality of your app.

Including all of that required functionality can overwhelm even the advanced developers. That is why Backstand exists.

Backstand simplifies Newsstand app development and publishing like no other solution on the market.

When you purchase Backstand you get a set of training materials that explain the process of Newsstand application development from A to Z. You also get read to compile Xcode projects, sample content and resource files.

But that's just the beginning. Our project files are pre-configured to work with our backend solution that collects device data required to publish push-notifications. We collect them, sort them, and package them for you. You can use that data to send push notifications using your own solution or using our own system.

We give you the tools to compose and send push notifications when new content is ready or when you feel it is beneficial for the user (you can send all types of push notifications using our system, not just Newsstand push notifications). If you need content hosting and delivery, we also have solutions pre-configured for Newsstand apps.

But rich functionality is just the beginning. You also get predictable prices. What you pay for is all you will pay. We make sure that you get enough storage and bandwidth to handle your apps demands, so you can focus on your app and content. You always know how much you will pay. All of our prices are per app.
