How in5 works

in5 translates your InDesign layout to an interactive HTML experience.

The HTML5 files that are produced are yours to keep and modify as you please.

Total flexibility because you own your content

The files are exported to your hard drive just like a PDF.

You can then post your files to the web, or package them into a mobile app.

Unlike a PDF or a SWF, you can easily open and make changes to the HTML5 files without re-exporting them.

Create as many apps or sites as you like!
