I had used a subscription service before, and this software seemed like a good value.
Much more positive than I was expecting for a reasonable and realistic price.

Very Expensive Product

Reviewed 4 years ago

I wish I would have saved my overall investment and purchased another software package. I can no longer use this software so it was a total waste of money.

Pros

I like that I was able to put together some cool flipbooks with this software. I was looking for something that was easy to use for online brochures and itineraries for group travel.

Cons

The software was pretty hard to figure how to use in the beginning. Once I got the hang of it, it seems that I was charged to create each book although the software itself was very expensive. I’m a small business owner and cannot afford to pay each time I create a book and use the link. In addition, why does the link expire months after you have purchased? I also wish there were better tutorials to show how to use the software and make professional looking books. I couldn’t figure out how to put more than one picture on per page.

Presenting with ease.

Reviewed 3 years ago

I always look forward to the Flip executional part as it adds value to your project.

Pros

Simplicity and ability to customise the content to your requirement. Option to carry the weight online so that presenting is fast and on point.

Cons

No Comment. I have not yet found a flaw now that flash issue has been resolved.

Excellent programme and great technical support.

Reviewed 4 years ago

The technical support has been excellent with someone getting back to me with detailed advice quickly on every occasion. An impressive programme and service for the price. I highly recommend.

Pros

Inexpensive in comparison to competitors yet better quality and easier to use.

Cons

It takes a little bit of time to get used to - though easy after a couple of books.

Best option for us among all the products out there

Reviewed 4 years ago

I'm satisfied with our purchase and we'll continue to use the product for years to come.

Pros

We compared several competing products out there and we found Flip PDF to be the most economical solution for what we were trying to achieve. Flip PDF had the all the features we need at the best price.

Cons

The software does crash once in a while not sure why.

Powerful Software that Produces Stunning End-Products With Lots of Room for Improvement

Reviewed 3 years ago

The pros far outweigh the cons, and the cons that I detail are minor gripes in contrast to how pleased I am with the finished products I can crank out with this software. 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. As of now, I'd say it's very good... and though expensive... is worth the money. It could be amazing though... so here's hoping that they keep at it.

Pros

-The monetization potential is through the roof. The ability to brand and customize your Flipbooks, while turning somewhat passe PDF's and Epubs into animated, interactive digital products that really feel like something you SHOULD be paying half to 2/3 the price of an actual book for makes this software worth its weight in gold. -The ability to make your ebooks into stunning presentations that can...

Cons

-The software is glitchy at times, and aspects of the UI seem very dated in some areas. -Can be frustrating to use at times. While the UI is overall pretty solid, things are unresponsive on occasion, and when that happens it can be difficult to figure out how to correct the problem. -Navigating the software is occasionally confusing, and how to properly utilize some features is not explained very well.

Overall Decent Product for the Cost

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

The features I appreciate most are the ability to upload PDF's quickly, the ability to add links throughout the Flipbook quickly and easily.

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. This makes it difficult to resolve and/or learn anything in a timely manner. Furthermore, after a short time corresponding about a particular issue, the support team failed to respond. I was able to find the solution only by "clicking...

Much better than Joomag!

Reviewed 7 years ago

I was a longtime user of Joomag and had a horrible experience with them, forcing me to look elsewhere to publish my magazine. Flip Builder was a one-time purchase...I own the software and am no longer held hostage by Joomag's horrible customer service and monthly fees. I am finally FREE! I am thrilled by not having the huge financial commitment and BETTER features. It is virtually identical to Joomag in appearance, except the software is dependable. I also can forgo the negative, frustrating interactions with Joomag management when their lower level reps can't troubleshoot software problems. No more hold-ups while waiting for inexperienced customer service reps to screw up my account either. I am now master of my own domain and I am breathing easier now due to the switch-over.

Pros

Easy to use -- actually offers more features than Joomag. Very cost effective. Does not hold you hostage like Joomag does. I was a longtime user of Joomag and found them to be a racket and to have unreliable software and snooty tech support. They also don't keep their agreements for the program you subscribe to. With Flip Builder you own the software outright so you are not beholden to expensive monthly subscriptions and can drive the traffic to your website. As the owner of a magazine, I am thrilled to get out from under "Big Brother" Joomag.

Cons

Slow tech support and you are dealing overseas. There is more formatting to do and it does take a bit to get the hang of the software.

Magnificent

Reviewed 4 years ago

With user experience, its actually quite friendly, i was skeptical because of where the software was coming from.... And i made a mistake in downloading the free version first. And when i made my purchase, I tried to put in the product registration key, and it didn't work....So i had anxiety, but once I uninstalled the free version, and downloaded the one in the link provided with the registration key, it worked....And our company sales has skyrocketed.

Pros

Originally, we was looking for better marketing materials. And digital marketing is the wave of the future, and for a small business, we was bootstrapping for cash flow.... Flip Pdf had no monthly subscription services, and the price was to good to be true....but we decided to give it a shot...and it was well over the value of the price we paid....

Cons

The only cons, is that i had to create a FTP server to get it to working....so if you are not tech savvy, its a learning curve.... On the other hand, if your customers are willing to accept executable files, and allow you to download the presentation onto thier computer....then there is other option for clients to view the digital pdf.

Flip PDF is your easy way to batch convert ordinary PDF files into booklets

Pros

Once you finish creating your flip book, it´s easy to publish it. Publications can be made either by importing PDF documents and images or from scratch using the built-in word processor. PDF files and images can be imported one by one or all at once.

Cons

A bit pricy for my taste, maybe I am used to pay for aps on Google that are like affordable. However if you need this and you will use all the features, go for it.

Loving It!

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

Overall a great program that I have moved over from 3dIssue to. Like the one time cost instead of monthly recurring billings, the features are all there, and I'm sure I'll be finding more functionality as I grow with the software.

Cons

Having a couple issues with some specific pdf files from the past, that we haven't solved yet but I'm confident that we will get the last issues to convert to their format.

Flip PDF is exactly what we needed for our company brochures

Reviewed 4 years ago

We researched several online catalog options and Flip PDF was the best value for the number of features it offers. Our executive team was very impressed with the results and said it really elevates the presentation of our brochures.

Pros

This software is very robust with a lot of available templates to choose from and the ability to modify nearly every feature within them.

Cons

There was a little bit of a learning curve at the beginning to figure out all the features and how to edit them, and how to upload online.

Good Choice

I was using another software and with the update to the new Mac OS, it failed and customer service was a joke. I found FLIP PDF as an alternative. I was literally up and running in 15 minutes. Easy to install, easy to use, perfect on the web, price is amazing for what you get.

Pros
