Review Source: Capterra

We have made some digital magazines with this solution like Couleurs JAZZ, integrating videos, music, pictures, texts, etc... We have created a really personalized reading experience working with Rakuten Aquafadas, using our usual PAO software, InDesign.

Pros
Fully integrated with InDesign workflow Re-use all assets of my print process Easy to create enrichments Advanced features like sub layout, anchors or conditional states The flexibility of the NextGen Kiosk (updating content easily) New HTML integration with InDesign Multi-platform

Cons
Need some training before using advanced features Often, too many clic to finalize a function Need more personalization with the integrated summary & menubar

Review Source: Capterra

Pros
We are delighted with Rakuten Aquafadas which has been able to accompany us during the digitalization process of our training materials. We like most : simplicity of use ; expanded possibilities ; the accompaniment of the commercial and technical team.

Cons
We were one of the first customers for the "training" solution; therefore we weren't able to benefit from prior experiences.

New InDesign plugin

Used weekly for 2+ years
Reviewed 2018-09-03
Review Source: Capterra

I'm a big fan of Aquafadas InDesign plugin since the origin... I'm an Aquafadas trainer, and certified expert. I'm waiting for the free single-doc publication solution !! And a "bugless" new InDesign plugin.

Pros
The features are very advanced and unique (multi drag&drop, multi-trigger, animations, sublayouts...) The Viewer allows us to show prototypes to our clients. And it's in... InDesign !

Cons
I'm testing the Beta version of the new plugin, and we have many bugs, problems, and lacking features for the moment... The UI is often complicated, not really user-friendly...

Pros
The front-office is easy to use through the Cloud Connect. All the changes are update in real time. We have the possibility to have some restrictions by using some conditions.

Cons
If you want to have this application available for different profiles, you should have a good coordination between your IT services and Rakuten Aquafadas.
