10 sites for creating digital newspapers

I came across an interesting list on one of the blogs I follow. They found 10 sites that will help you create and or distribute a digital newspaper.  (It's worth noting that I'm using a pretty broad definition of newspaper here.)

  1. Issuu - One of the most popular and successful online digital magazine creators/publishers around, with a very nice user interface.
  2. Yudu - Upload a document or PDF to create an online magazine that can be emailed our or embedded into a site.
  3. Openzine - Very user friendly site with an abundance of templates and layouts to create a professional-looking magazine and share online.
  4. NewsCred - Create a terrific looking online newspaper in 5 minutes, similar to Openzine.
  5. Scribd - A very popular Web 2.0 site for creating online content and publishing.
  6. Fodey - A fun site to create a newspaper and then download to print out or put on a blog or site.
  7. Zinepal - A great way to bring the news to students by "clipping" online articles. This is a wonderful site for those making the move to ebook readers.
  8. Paper.li - A fantastic site to turn Twitter into an online readable magazine.
  9. Crayon - Create a professional-looking newspaper with this nice online creator. There are several options to choose from, so it has a bit of a higher learning curve.
  10. Mygazines

P.S. Can anyone add to the list? I'd like to see how long it can get.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  5. I want to make http://www.ejugantor.com/ this type of enews paper. How can I do this?
    Like: When I click a news, it’s show popup and bigger. And again click then close. Have any tools or tips for this type of news paper?

  6. I have used http://www.newspaperclub.co.uk You can make a newspaper really easily with their online tool and then print it as a proper newspaper really cheaply.

  7. Nice post and I have often used Newscred. The best part of it is its so simple to use. Your news not only have to be rich but also very presentable with proper breaks.

    I have also used http://www.bulletlink.com and found that it too was good. I wish they come up with a free version as well. Allthesame, good one.


  8. The site glogster.com is also a great site if one just needs to make a poster. With a little creativity and effort, one can make a front page of a newspaper with it. Can add on animations, pictures, and text. Also can look at other people’s creations and “borrow” their ideas.

  10. Just came across this website while looking for a new online Newspaper/Magazine WordPress Theme: http://xtthemes.com/xt-xtra-wp-theme/
    Looks good and it does appear easy to use.

  11. let’s take http://zealpulse.com/, as it hasn’t been listed

  12. I am looking for a template that includes a mobile version and an app in addition to the website – I can pay some, just not $100 plus per month until we launch. Suggestions?

  13. http://www.pugpig.com is worth a look. Its run by the former CTO of News International.

  14. You might want to remove or put up a warning about: http://guzzle.it/. I showed your list to my high school kids to make a news paper. It is a fetish site now. So not good.

  15. Hey guys you should give bulletlink.com a try. I’ve been using it for 3 years now and they just came out with free mobile apps for my newspaper. Just loved it!!
