Flip, a digital library for local books and comics, has launched with the aim of making digital distribution and monetization easier for local authors and publishers.
Claimed to be the first digital library in Africa with airtime billing enabled, Flip houses a large and expanding collection of Nigerian ebooks and comics for users’ reading pleasure.
The platform is accessible via web browsers and has a browser-based reader, optimised for mobile, making it easy to read and navigate irregardless of the mobile device used.
Users can bookmark their comics, save books for reading at a later time, manage their subscriptions, and even publish their own content on the platform.
Asides making local books easily accessible, Flip also provides local publishers a platform to effectively distribute and monetize their content whilst combating piracy. Users pay for subscriptions with their mobile airtime.
The service is currently active on the Etisalat Nigeria network and will be available across other mobile operators in the coming months. Try the service today; visit Flip.
