Cygnet Infotech

This latest iteration of Magnolia CMS has been released to support today’s mobile age and hence features out of the box mobile ready features which makes it the first mobile enabled CMS on the market.

Pascal Mangold, CEO and Cofounder of Magnolia International Ltd said “We designed Magnolia to be as simple and as flexible as a Smartphone. The result is a CMS that looks beautiful, feels natural and is fast and intuitive to use.”

With Magnolia 5, a number of groundbreaking features have been also released that promises to revolutionize the content management like never before. Let’s dive into Magnolia 5 and check out whether it will stand out from the rest.

Touch Inspired Interface

Magnolia 5 has introduced an intuitive touch inspired interface that lets you manage your tasks in Magnolia with swipe actions on both PCs and touch screen devices like Smartphones, tablets, iPads, laptops. This enables users to navigate between applications easily and complete the task quickly.

Application Launcher

Magnolia 5 features App Launcher, a feature that allows users to navigate between applications using a spring boat just like you do on a smartphone. Another advantage of this feature is that it allows developers to create their own customized applications that looks and feels just like inbuilt Magnolia apps with the same ease of use.

Intuitive Collapse Action Bar

Magnolia 5 leaves behind the bulky and cumbersome toolbars and drop downs and replaces them with intuitive Collapse Action Bars that appear on single side of the screens of devices like iPads. These Action Bars collapses and highlights the icons as touch-targeted squares depending on the task you are currently working providing a better usability and interactivity.
