Developing a Self-Publishing Platform for Regional Literature

Client Background

Matrubharti is one of the fastest growing regional publishing platforms that connects readers and writers interested in regional literature. The platform supports 20+ Indian languages and has more than 1 Lakh readers and 3675+ authors and gives writers the opportunity to self-publish their work that anyone can read online or via a mobile app.

Business Needs

Developing an interactive mobile app for a regional language self-publishing platform was quite a challenge. The mobile application had to support 20+ regional languages such as Gujarati, Hindi, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu, Punjabi, Malayalam, Kannada, Urdu, Sindhi, Bengali, & English. Also, it was required that the app platform has excellent features for content management, compiling and publishing for authors.

At the same time, it was required to be user friendly that should motivate the readers to check out regional literature and interact with authors, freely.

Solutions

Nichetech developed a holistic mobile app that connects readers with authors and at the same time give authors the opportunity to reach wider audience. Using the app, an author can understand his/her work’s popularity through dedicated author dashboard. The mobile app was designed to offer exploratory convenience to the readers.
