General Information

You can edit the properties of a publication at any time. If you have mutiple publications or newsfeeds in your app, you can also change the order in which they are displayed. 


In order to edit the properties of a publication, please go to the content tab of your app in the Purple DS Manager. 

There you will find the publications in the newsstand section and the newsfeeds.

To get started, click the little blue arrow displayed on the right next to the publcation/newsfeed name to open the dropdown menu.

The dropdown menu offers you the following options:

This allows you to revise an existing publication. It is the same menu as create  New Publication. Please save all changes you made. These will be visible after restarting the app. You do not have to rebuild the app for this adjustment!

Edit subscription
Here you will find an overview of subscriptions and you can also create new App Store subscriptions. Learn more about subscriptions.  

Edit properties
This area is used for technical settings. If you wish to make settings here, please contact sprylab first

Import issues
With this option, you can automatically create issues (without a PKAR file) via CSV. This is especially useful if you are looking to import old issues (back issues) to Purple DS app

Shift to beginning / Shift right and Shift left / Shift to end
You can specify the order of newsfeeds or publications for the app, meaning you can move a newsfeed or publication right and left. The order here is the same as the order you will see in the app. The further left the publication is displayed in the manager, the further up the list it appears in the app. While Shift to beginning moves the publication to the top, or position number one here, Shift to end will move a publication to the bottom or the last position in the list here.

Remove from app
This setting removes the publication from the app. However, the publication isn't lost completely. It remains with all the issues in the Manager. It can still be found under Publication in the Manager menu.
