Pros

We loved the ease of use and the great customer service on the platform as well as how easy and secure the payment portal was.
Overall, I am very happy with Flipsnack. I use it to easily create magazines so that we can have something fun for our audience and also have more places to advertise.
We've had a wonderful experience with Flipsnack. The one time that we had to contact support, we were responded to quickly and the issue was researched, escalated, and resolved well.

Pros

Powerful Software that Produces Stunning End-Products With Lots of Room for Improvement.
It's because I love the software as much as I do that I even harp on them, in the hopes that the devs will see these critiques and keep working at refining and improving the UI.
If the user has a brain and can push a few buttons, congratulations, this is the perfect solution to reach out and build any business from self-publishing to multi-million-pound production profit.

Cons

The lack of inclusion in the app is the reason I will be removing my magazine from flipsnack. We needed the app platform for our readers to subscribe and view us consistently.
Nothing I can think of that causes me any problem whether for 3 page leaflets or 60 page magazines.
Very confusing to use to many customers. Customers never received initial emails and could not access their accounts.

Cons

Contacting support was a disappointment due to the lack of options to do so; the only way is to open a ticket through their website and wait for a response via email.
The Point System is confusing when uploading the books over each other online. If replaced I do not think a point should be deducted, only when another book is uploaded.
Last but not least, it was very disappointing to find out that after purchasing the product you must spend $1 per Flipbook published even if you are simply revising an existing Flipbook.

Horrible platform lacking fuction and customer support

Reviewed 7 months ago
Pros

We were initially attracted to Flipsnack for the PDF flip feature and the ability to add in image carousels, videos and use our domain.

Cons

The platform doesn't hold your font formatting - meaning after you finish your project and preview, and you return to your edit screen all the copy returns to a small black font - a nightmare. No data features - your reports and decks have graphs and pie charts. They can't build them nor can they be animated in any way. The builder is beyond terrible to use. You expect a Canva type experience, however, this platform is lightyears behind. Incredibly overpriced to get all the functions they advertise. Once Canva adds these capabilities this platform will be obsolete. Customer service is only available a few hours a day. Every time we tried to contact support it said they were closed. We tried in the evening, morning the next day and afternoon - nothing.

Vendor response

Hello, We're very sorry to hear that you've had such a negative experience with our platform. It's disheartening to hear that you've tried to contact our support team but couldn't receive assistance due to our working hours. We will definitely consider your feedback and use it to further advance our platform, but we would love to hear more about what we could improve to make your experience better. If you are willing to share some more details about this with us then please send us an email at contact@flipsnack.com or you can reach our Live Chat which is available from Monday - Friday, 6 am - 11 pm GMT

Takes some getting used to, but the end product is awesome...

Reviewed 5 years ago

I have been able to make the next-best-thing to a printed product menu and save a ton on printing and mailing. To me, my flip is far prettier than any PDF would be. Though I still have printed product menus, my flip book is always available on my website!

Pros

The final product- it's the best version of a "virtual" magazine/catalog that I could imagine. Very pretty and professional. You can customize nearly everything- the background, a "flip" sound, how the pages turn. It's very nice.

Cons

It is tricky to use at first, and doesn't feel intuitive. I had to search around for how to add/change/edit something, because it seems like buttons are in different places depending on where you're at in your editing. It took me several tries to figure out how to add pages and where to do so.

Vendor response

Such an awesome review! Thank you so much, Sarah!

Reviewed 9 months ago

We having been using the product for 3 years now. We have used it internally for previewing files to our team. Mostly used to share publications on our website. Great presentation of our publications. Full screen option makes publication easy to read online.

Pros

Easy to convert from multi-page pdf to publishable flip book. The software is well maintained and fully functional when updates are released. Easy to learn, easy to use.

Cons

I have no negative comments about this product.

Thank you so much for the review and feedback, Mike. We're so happy you like Flipsnack this much!

Online Learning

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

With the switch to online education during the global pandemic, my students loved and appreciated the authenticity of reading a digital flip book as opposed to a Word or PDF document.

Cons

The only limitations that I experienced is due to the features of the free version. I’ve previously only used the software once a year for a single assignment, but with the current prospect of returning to online learning, I will speak to my school about a paid subscription so that I can fully utilize this amazing software.

Hello Michael, We are so happy that you and your students enjoy Flipsnack. Offering free classroom for teachers it was our solution to help in this time when we need to be more united.

Flipsnack as a sponsorship deck tool

Reviewed 5 years ago

I can develop very creative and interactive sponsorship decks that customers can enjoy and flip through with ease - while also creating a printable PDF deck for them if they choose to share a printable version with their colleagues.

Pros

I like the ability to customize including images and video for each of the sponsorship decks I produce for clients. To easily change out or add pdfs to the decks is a huge time saver for me, and allows me to be as creative as I would like, without reinventing a deck every time.

Cons

There really isn't too much I don't like.

Hey there, Thank you for your kind words!

Great Viewing Experience

We have been able to better version-control our ordering tools and catalogs using Flipsnack, which has helped our sales team immensely.

Our digital catalogs look like physical booklets, with shadowed pages that flip & turn like real life!

Houston Community College Central's review of Flipsnack

Reviewed 2 years ago

It's been a true asset to my department's work. It elevates my work and is always well received. Internal constituents want to make sure their items are in it. That tells me they like the product and want to be a part of it.

Pros

It is pretty easy to use. Uploading a finished pdf. is simple and the end results are impressive. People have enjoyed looking at flip books I create at the start of the month to promote college events. It elevates basic fliers to a nice, newer level and makes viewing more fun.

Cons

What needs to be improved: 1). Basic background choices (not enough color options or textures), 2). The ability to add video clips. 3). Greater detail on how long a person views a page, etc. 4). It should also work like Constant Contact (CC) and allow for distribution lists so I can send a flip book directly without CC.

Vendor response

Thank you so much for the review. It helps us a lot! All your suggestions will be discussed with the team.

Flipsnack Review

Reviewed 6 years ago

At WILDFIRE, we've been using Flipsnack for 18 months. It has definitely helped us feel much more legit in the magazine publishing world. I love that I can meet my readers where they want to read, whether it is digitally or in print, and Flipsnack keeps my digital readers very happy.

Pros

As the publisher of a magazine that is both digital and in print, Flipsnack has been great for giving my online readers a true-magazine feel without having to fork over the cash for the print version. I love how classy Flipsnack keeps my magazine. Prior to using Flipsnack, readers were scrolling vertically and it felt much more blog-like. The horizontal feel is much more like a traditional magazine.

Cons

Literally the only thing I would change if I could about the software is enable folks to continue to flip through the magazine after zooming in. It is a little cumbersome to zoom in, read, then have to zoom back out to flip the page.

Vendor response

Thank you so much for the review. We'll keep your suggestion in mind!

I've been creating our monthly brochures in powerpoint and it was a struggle to get the look I wanted - Flip snack makes me look good

Pros

its easy to drag and drop and create a layout pretty quickly

Cons

I wish it was easier to reorganize the pages - seeing a grid of thumbnails you can drag and move would be awesome

Ease of creation

Reviewed 4 years ago

I like Flipsnacks features and software is basically easy to use, Clients like that fact that they can flip through my brochures today and not have to wait for me to mail them to them

Pros

Even with some issues with updating pages, the software is basically easy to use. I also like that you can organize your pages by uploading them one at a time and the flip/turning feature.

Cons

I like difficult changing/updating pages of existing brochures pages. Software would not let me add new PDF image to group had to convert it to a JPG before it would upload and then would not let me place in order that needed to be. I wish it was more affordable for a small company like myself

We've had a great experience with Flipsnack and really appreciate the non-profit discount.

Pros

Flipsnack allows us to promote our materials on-line so that readers can easily "Flip" through pages like they would a magazine and not lose continuity while they are reading a multi-page document.

Cons

It would be helpful to be able to have additional documents included within our subscription tier. Otherwise, it is great!

Flipsnack is wonderful! I have been using this service for months now and have not experienced one problem. It’s easy to create all your flipbooks, embed and share, no extra drama.

Flip stack is easy to use, just a few clicks and you're ready to share your flipbook. I love the fact that there is no extra drama. No drama and reasonably priced, thats the ticket for me.

Perfect for annual reports & e-booklets!

Pros

Flipsnack is incredibly user-friendly -- for those creating with it and those consuming content. It's the perfect tool for our nonprofit for making flip-able e-books of things like annual reports and meeting booklets.

Cons

The only downside is the limit on catalogues we can make -- but that just means we are using the software more than we expected and probably need to upgrade our subscription!

Really easy to use, and gives your business a more professional asthetic when designing.

Reviewed 4 years ago

It is a great time saving tool and also gives someone with little experience the opportunity to be able to design content with a lot of assistance and the searchable templates give great guidance on creating professional looking designs.

Pros

I like the searchable templates as they are a great source of inspiration when you haven't got all day to be able to start from scratch on each design task!

Cons

I think that the arrangement, adjustment and editing of individual images would be great if more functionality was added. Mirror flip and degree rotation would be a great addition.

Simple to use with professional output

Reviewed 3 years ago

My overall experience using Flipsnack is great! Plenty of good features without bugs, flaws or glitches. A catalogue easy to create if you have a company but also easy for the customers to flip (the catalogue)

Pros

I have liked that you can have the basic features for free and you do not need to pay to have an excellent output. Of course the free version is enough only if you have a home business as I have had, while if you need a more professional output for a proper company you should purchase the paid version! Customers can flip the catalogue very easily and also from my side it was very easy and intuitive to create the catalogue. And I have seen no flaws, bugs or glitches

Cons

Actually there is nothing in particular that I have not liked about this software. It offers the basic features I needed for free while you could pay for premium features. No flaws!

Hello, We are so happy that you are enjoying our features and that Flipsnack is the right platform for you. Thank you for your review!

Easy to Use + Professional Look

Reviewed 4 years ago

Overall my experience is very good. I like the final product, it looks professional and aesthetically pleasing, the fact that its an online "book" is novel and makes my offerings stand out. I use my flip books mostly as lead magnets, thank you gifts and bonus content for my online programs. I think they present as high quality and special, better than just a regular PDF to download, and the ability to link and add video really help me integrate other content and give the user a rich experience.

Pros

Very easy to upload a PDF and have it quickly turned into a flip book. Background colors and patterns, the ability to insert live links and video, allows for coordinating with my brand and sending viewers to my website or video channel easily. The option to turn off page turn sounds, create gifs, and have multiple formats are great extras. I especially like the ability to have a link to the full screen version without Flipsnack branding or similar publications featured BUT keeping the social share options. This creates a very personalized and professional experience for my clients and importantly prospective clients.

Cons

I find the editor clunky and less than intuitive. Simply trying to add a line of text and a link is confusing. You can not simply drop in a text box and type, and then highlight the text and add a link. Honestly, I still haven't figured it out. For example today I tried to add something to an existing page and clicked on the thumbnail of the page in the right hand column of the editor and for whatever...

Vendor response

Hi Jan! Thank you for taking the time to review our platform. We're very sorry that you're having a difficult time with the editor. Our goal is and will always be to make work easier. That being said, we've made note of the thumbnail issue, and will look into it. If you have absolutely any other issues moving forward, please contact our live chat experts. They will be able to assist you in a matter of minutes. We very much appreciate your honest opinion!

A clever way to present digital content

Reviewed 2 years ago

We use Flipsnack for all of our internal and external presentations. It's our go-to program.

Pros

Users are always so impressed that we can create a digital book with pages that flip like a traditional book. This feature makes the content interactive & engaging. We can easily embed the presentations onto our website and other digital platforms.

Cons

The free version has limitations when it comes to features but there is always the opportunity to upgrade for a small cost.

Vendor response

Thank you for the 5-stars review! We are so happy that you and your team like Flipsnack this much!

We print three catalogs every year and needed a solution to quickly convert to an online version of the catalog. We have tried others in the past, but Flipsnack is the best solution we have found.

Pros

Ease of use and converts from PDF quickly.

Cons

No cons for us, this has been a great software.

Great for Sending Qualifications and Proposals

Reviewed 9 months ago

Flipsnack has provided a visually appealing way to present our firm's qualifications. Sharing it is simple. Our project executives love having the option to send a PDF as well as an interactive link to prospects outside of our four walls.

Pros

I love that I can send a interactive and engaging presentation of qualifications document in an easy link. Creating the flip book is quick and easy. I like that I can keep links private so I can share it only with those I wish to access it.

Cons

The ability to edit pages or add pages after publication is a little clunky. Usually I simply delete and start over if there are substantial changes to pages within each document.

Vendor response

Thanks for the review, Jill! We are constantly trying to improve our platform based on the suggestions of our users and your feedback helps us a lot!

Decent designing and marketing tool for me

Reviewed a year ago

Flipsnack is an excellent solution for quickly and easily bringing your PDFs to life. It’s easy to use, fast, and offers powerful features like shopping buttons, videos, and GIFs. However, its pricing plans may be too expensive for some users and the Design Studio feature isn’t as powerful as other solutions. As such, it may be best suited for those who need fast PDF-to-flipbook conversion and don’t require the more advanced features.

Pros

Flipsnack's quick PDF-to-flipbook conversion sets it apart. Its basic, intuitive UI makes it easy to use. Flipsnack's buying buttons, videos, and GIFs help bring catalogs to life.

Cons

Flipsnack’s pricing plans may be too expensive for some users, and the Design Studio feature isn’t as powerful as some other publishing solutions. Additionally, some users have reported issues with the 3D flip-page effect not working properly in certain browsers.

Vendor response

Thank you so much for the review, Arun! We're glad that our quick PDF-to-flipbook conversion and interactive features have helped bring your catalogs to life. We understand that our pricing plans may not be suitable for everyone, but we try to offer various options to fit different budgets and needs. We're constantly working to improve our platform and add new features to help our users create even more engaging content. Your feedback helps us a lot, and the team will investigate the issues you mentioned.

Flipsnack Allows Your PDF Publications to Shine

Reviewed 5 years ago

It would be great if it had the ability to create subscriptions, with automatic sharing via email. While ours is free, we use it as a tool to share our internal initiatives.

Pros

Flipsnack makes it easy to convert your PDFs to interactive and engaging Flip Books. For us, we needed a platform to display a digital version our monthly program guide, and this did the job well! The editing tools also make it easy to add links, and publication navigation as well!

Cons

When creating new Flip Books, I have to recreate the widget each time. It would be nice if the previously selected preferences such as this should be able to carry over automatically. Table of contents is never detected on my documents.

Vendor response

Hi Mikel, Thank you for your useful review! In regards of the table of contents, please contact our Live Chat Support. Our experts will be more than happy to help you.

Great program!

Reviewed 5 years ago

Pretty good so far.

Pros

I like that I can take a simple PDF and make it more interactive. The tools are easy to use and it's quick to publish.

Cons

When I upload my PDF and add captions it looks great. BUT say I want to update the PDF. It erases all of my captions and I need to start over. I don't like that.

Vendor response

Hey there, Paige! Thank you for your kind words! We're sorry to hear about the captions. Please contact our live chat experts to see how we can help.
