Great Software Great Support

5 2 years ago

Comments: Excellent.... just easy to use, effective software. [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] at Support is a great help also. Very helpful and responsive.

Pros:

The speed at which it take your PDF file... and in a few mins your publication could be live online looking glorious and interactive... literally 5mins from start to finish.

Cons:

Has occasional bug errors... but has never stopped me making a successful publication. Hopefully will be fixed in future software updates.

A solid option for budget-conscious marketers

5 2 years ago

Comments: Flip PDF is allowing us to transform large PDFs into professional, web-friendly eBooks while staying within our allotted marketing budget.

Pros:

I like that the software is not subscription-based. We don't do a ton of eBooks, so this is a great option for limited-budget marketing team.

Cons:

It took quite a bit of trial and error before I figured out how to format the book. Once I did, it worked fine, but future versions would benefit from a more user-friendly interface.

Continuing Audio Challenges with this User-Friendly Multi-MediaSoftware

3 2 years ago

Comments: Technical support from Hong Kong has been frustrating - very small window of awake time for sending and receiving messages immediately because of the time zone difference. The person assigned to my account has not been able to solve my audio challenges on her own and we have been held up on publishing our very first Flip PDF for [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] because of this. She should have had ready answers to my questions AND they should also be FAQ, e.g., should be stated that the audio format must be mp3 -- it took me a good week to get this vital information when I was using another extension. Then I did not get a clear answer to how to assign audio variably to single and double pages -- another FAQ should state that sound must be attached to single or double pages for the whole Flip book and user cannot mix single and double pages. I had to figure this out myself. Also no clear answer as to when Flip PDF will get updated to include a download function. I'm still waiting for a response to my query about the alternative for Flipbook sales when there is no download function. Access to a link is not a viable option for unique access to a publication. I am dissatisfied that no way to contact the supervisor or administrator for Flip PDF either by email or phone when the person assigned to me is clearly out of her depth. The last message she sent me was a screenshot for setting the playback function to zero, which is not even available in my version.

Pros:

Flip PDF meets the needs of our multi-media niche publishing company dedicated to the healing arts because it allows integration of text, audio, video, and hyperlinks into a flipbook. Also, user-friendly in that a moderately computer-savvy person can create a Flipbook without hiring technical help.

Cons:

The integration of the sound files has been unreliable. The playback function (number of rotations set to 0) worked on a trial file but when I published the final for publication under the [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] primatur, it repeated after every page.

Good End Results, Ok User Experience

4 2 years ago

Comments: The end product is nice and easy to integrate into our website. The experience has positives and negatives.

Pros:

Customization of the interface, ease of export in different formats

Cons:

The user experience feels antiquated - the mac version I hav of Flip PDF Pro looks like it's from 15 years ago and is difficult to navigate. The user manual doesn't include all of the answers that I needed upon trying to make my first few books and I had to figure it out myself which took a lot of time.
