FlippingBook Publisher product overview

What is FlippingBook Publisher?

FlippingBook is a software and cloud service for creating professional online documents with a smooth page flip effect. Users can convert static PDFs into interactive e-books, catalogs, and brochures that look engaging on any device. This solution offers a family of products that help marketing, sales, and HR teams to improve their communication process.

Key benefits of using FlippingBook Publisher

- Make online documents look smart on any device with FlippingBook's mobile-friendly format, beautiful skins, branding options, and a smooth page-turn effect.

- Share flipbooks as links. Links are much easier to text, email, or post to social networks than bulky PDFs.

- Make content more engaging by adding YouTube, Vimeo, or Wistia videos, GIFs, pop-ups, and web links.

- See what happens to flipbooks after you hit Send. Track views, visitors, or integrate Google Analytics to get more data.

- Keep your flipbooks up-to-date. Users can change the content, but the link will remain unchanged.

- Send reports and client proposals privately - restrict sharing options for flipbooks or even set a password for better content protection

Pros
I love how easy it is to create a nice looking online flipbook with just a few clicks.

FlippingBook provided all the information to decide on the best option for our school. Very friendly and easy to work with.

Great way to go digital, save trees and one of the best indexes I've ever seen.

David S.

Cons
Without analytics I can see the data in Google analytics but it's a mess. And to pay 499 extra just to see those analytics is to much.

David S.

Sometime links are missing from InDesign and a part is created on a layer so we have double text.

Once in awhile I get stuck trying to tweak something and can't find the tool to do it.

Great tool for online catalogues

Reviewed 3 months ago

Great way to go digital, save trees and one of the best indexes I've ever seen!

Pros

Index and look-and-feel. Great corporate personalisation

Cons

Without analytics I can see the data in Google analytics but it's a mess!! and to pay 499 extra just to see those analytics is to much. Also the editable layer with links can be improved eg by a alignment tool for index pages. Sometime links are missing from InDesign and a part is created on a layer so we have double text.

Vendor response

Hi David! Thank you for your review and suggestions! We're glad you're enjoying going digital with FlippingBook.

Great bit of software

Reviewed 2 years ago

It has allowed us to move away from print material and have catalogues, guides, brochures etc available as an online file which our customers can share or print should they wish.

Pros

I love how easy it is to create a nice looking online flipbook with just a few clicks. After spending hours if not days creating print-ready publications and having the individual PDFs ready to go its just a case of uploading the file and bang it's there ready to add links etc. The software is very simple to use and has given our company an extra wow factor that our competitors don't have.

Cons

It would be great to be able to overlay videos on to the flipbook or have some form of lightbox to show additional advertising of a product or service.

Vendor response

Hi Stephen! Thank you for your nice review and for choosing FlippingBook! Actually, you can add videos to your flipbooks as well as highlighted links that you can use for additional advertising. If it's not what you're looking for, please, don't hesitate to ask our support team - they're always here to help!

Top Notch Customer Service

Reviewed 6 months ago
Pros

[SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] was available via chat IMMEDIATELY and she helped me figure out my issue quickly and explained it simply THANK YOU!

Cons

Flash is outdated so not sure how it will work in the future

Vendor response

Hi Ford! We're sorry you had a negative experience with our product and glad that our support was able to help with whatever problem you encountered. However, we must notice that FlippingBook doesn't run on Flash - all the flipbooks you create with our software are HTML5 publications.

Changing the way you present!

Reviewed 2 years ago

Flippingbook has become a main stay for our materials recently and has helped with making sure that our materials are up to date and everyone involved has a link that is constantly being updated versus not having access to the current and most up to date material!

Pros

Presentations and sharing our marketing materials now has an extra cherry on top. By providing users our materials in Flippingbook format, they are more engaged, are able to share these links with others and in turn have saved us printing costs.

Cons

We do like the ability to turn off things like printing, sharing, etc, however a lot of these things are easy to crack (i.e. if you disable saving, you can still print and save as pdf to retain the information on the screen).

Vendor response

Hi Christopher! Thank you for such a great review and for choosing FlippingBook! We'll continue making our product even better for you :)

Great. Love the product!

Pros

Fast and easy to upload files. Great customer service

Cons

We would like to see the option for a two page spread that does not flip (ex. a two page menu.) Also, would love to have more skins or background options.

Vendor response

Hi Ashley! Thank you for your review and for choosing FlippingBook! We'll pass your requests on to our developers.
