// HORIZONTAL ORIENTATION
First of all, Automotiv is a horizontal oriented magazine for both tablets and smartphones.
So when you open the app, the first thing you see on top is the GRID.
This is where we place our daily features.
You can choose which feature you want to open, our you can easily swipe between features when a feature is open. You can swipe both right and left, depending on how many features are available in the grid at that time.
Every feature gets downloaded instant, what means that it will take just a few seconds (depending on your internet connection) to be able to open a feature.
Features remain in the grid until a new issue gets published.
// ISSUES / FEATURES IN A ISSUE / FEATURE DOWNLOAD
Home of every Automotiv issue.*
Here you can find our back issues, and when you open a feature, you’ll see a gallery of features.
You can start with the cover and swipe from feature to feature like a normal magazine, or you can choose to open a random feature from the magazine.
Every issue will stay available in the future
* Keep in mind that issue 1-6 is not available for smartphones!
// HOW TO & INFO
At the very bottom you can find our HOW TO and INFO features.
We strongly recommend to read the HOW TO section in order to be able to enjoy the interactivity experience at the fullest. We kept it short and to the point, so that everybody is able to work his way to the magazines and their content.
In case you have problems or questions, you can use the information that can be found in the INFO feature to get a hold of us.
You can also join us us on social media by using the direct links in our INFO feature.
// OFFLINE READING
Yes, you need an internet connection to download and watch the features. However, you can also download each issue on your device by clicking on the little cloud in the right upper corner. That way you can perfectly enjoy the magazines when you are offline, for example when you have an airplane trip planned.
// SEARCH ENGINE
Our search engine is loaded with metadata in order to find easily access to cars, products, events by using keywords.
Keep in mind that you need to typ minimum 3 signs to get result.
For example, you won’t find two letter words like KW, you will need to type kwsuspension, kwautomotive, or words that are related such as coilover, shock, etc.
// INTERACTIVITY IN PASSED ISSUES
Keep in mind that the interactivity that we use keeps evolving, and so you might discover that some elements of the interactivity aren’t available for older issues. That’s for example the case for ‘Double Click’ on images, something that was introduced in issue 11.
