SAP Press Reader
Custom Book App

SAP Press Reader

SAP Press is a subsidiary of Rheinwerk Verlag that publishes publications on SAP solutions. For this company, we have developed an iOS and Android app for tablets and smartphones: subscribers can download books in EPUB format and read them offline.

From the first feasibility study to continuous optimization through integration of customer feedback, we supported the agile development process.

Simple. Everywhere. Reading.

User-friendliness and ease of use were the focus from the outset of the conception and consulting: after a feasibility study, we therefore started with a preliminary project in order to clarify fundamental questions: How can the content be protected with reasonable effort? How can e-books be transferred and stored in encrypted form? Which (Open Source) Reader do we use? How do we realise stream reading, i.e. the bit by bit downloading of texts?

Our activity in the open source community also helped us to answer these questions. With it, we designed a system of tailor-made components.

The Features

The app should offer the user easy handling and reading comfort. Therefore we paid attention to the following functions.

  • Downloading subscribed titles
  • Easy download of purchased e-books
  • Search function in library by keywords and topics
  • Reading in EPUB format
  • Font size adjustment
  • Navigation via table of contents
  • Mark text and bookmark function

The most important question: What do the users want?

During the implementation, it was important to us to quickly deliver an operational product (Minimum Viable Product).

Safe downloading, book selection and reading, that’s it. On this basis we worked with a customer-oriented development process and cocreation. This allowed us to quickly find out how users were really using the app and which features were still missing. Options such as “set favorites” or the “full text search” were not planned from the beginning, but resulted directly from customer wishes.
