Abstract: Mobile devices are significant part of our daily life, we use them to reach and consume digital data. According to different surveys the role of the tablet devices is already quite relevant and they are going to determine the close future of the mobile devices. A reasonable part of online documents have a fixed layout, like Adobe’s Portable Document Format (PDF). This inflexibility leads to a poor online reading experience, since the size and resolution of monitors and mobile devices require readers to scroll around in order to read a page. The diversity of mobile platforms and the device capabilities requires providing automatic layout solutions for online newspapers and magazines. The challenge is to automatically adapt the whole digital magazine content, text and graphics, in order to articles look as good on tablet displays of any size as they do in printed media. To improve the limitations of current online reading experience, we need adaptive layout solutions that support automatic layout preparation for a wide range of displays.
