    I am interested in purchasing a standard license In5 to produce digital magazines. I would like to clarify some doubts.

    With In5 and Baker can create the same app(digital magazine) for Ipads, Iphone and Android Tablets and Smartphones?

    Is there any course that covers the topics addressed in In5?

    Is possible to test the digital magazines (view in Ipad) in trial version?

    I would appreciate if you could answer me.

    I await a return

    Thank you

      I’m not sure about the status of the Android Baker project, but it’s worth a try.

      You might want to also look into some other options like PhoneGap Build.

      And yes, you can use the trial version of in5 to run tests. That’s what it’s there for. 😉

    Is there a way to make the images in the presentation slide in instead of just appear?

    1. Justin says:

      Yes, same type of CSS for the transitions and hooking into the class, e.g.:

      transition: all 1s ease-out .5s;
      -moz-transition: all 1s ease-out .5s;
      -webkit-transition: all 1s ease-out .5s;
      -o-transition: all 1s ease-out .5s;
      } img{

      1. Jonathan Hoeft says:

        That works for Safari, but when I test in Firefox, it the images show up with the slide.

      2. Justin says:

        It may require some tweaks, but it works when I test it in Firefox v34.0 on the Mac.
