New app from Brisbane dev promises to change publishing

A BRISBANE-based print publisher has developed an app that has the potential to transform an industry already revolutionised by Apple, Google, Amazon and Microsoft.

Liquid State is a design application that converts print-ready content to mobile and tablet layouts with just five clicks, avoiding lengthy production processes that can be costly to multi-platform publishers.

And the app, built by a start-up of the same name, has just won a major federal government grant and funding from a group of local angel investors worth nearly $800,000.

Co-creator and company CEO Philip Andrews said the backing would enable his team to develop the second stage of their radical idea - a cloud-based layout program.

But it would take some time for people to grasp the full potential of his company's idea, Mr Andrews said.
