«A great way to share Creative Compilations»

Usability

Support

Features

5

Overall rating

Benefits:

Flipsnack gives me a way to share digital versions of artists' books I create. Combining text with imagery in tactile books is a limited edition - with Flipsnack I can upload word docs in sections of a complete book (covers, chapters, colophon) and Flipsnack software merges them Into a whole. I do not have paid versions of Adobe products so part of Flipsnack's value is in providing me a pdf version of each book I upload.

Drawbacks:

Flipsnack's basIc version is good enough for me, although I do sometimes wish for the up-graded features, but I appreciate the flexability that lets me take down and put up different books to juggle my basic plan limits.

In sum:

Flipsnack allows me to share creations without giving up control of my work. I originally used Flipsnack to turn in creative works to professors and college administrators .

«A Good Solution for Creating PDF Booklets »

Usability

Support

Features

5

Overall rating

Benefits:

It's simple to upload and converts quickly. I like that it has an editor in the app and that you can have interactive links in the booklet. I also like that it gives viewers the option to download a pdf version.

Drawbacks:

I wish you could customize the URL. This is only available with the highest paid plan.

In sum:

Flipsnack has been a good beginning solution for us. We needed to be able to provide potential and existing customers with an easier to read option for our catalogs and ebooks. Flipsnack was easy to use and implement and we never had any problems with our customers being able to view the products. It gives it that final professional touch!

«Good value for money»

Usability

Overall rating

Benefits:

The user interface is simple and easy to use. Hot boxing images to provide cliackable links to videos and websites is great. Providing readers with the option of downloading or viewing simplified versions is also useful. Having clear statisitcs is also handy so that you can better understand your audience.

Drawbacks:

Whilst you can build a publication from scratch with only this software, uploading a pdf designed in external programmes (such as InDesign) is better due to the limited design features in comparison. The app for mobiles/tablets is a little limited and could be expanded with more features.

In sum:

The overall value for money of this software is good and the help/support has been excellent. Queries are dealt with quickly and with clear results.

Overall rating

Benefits:

It gives us an opportunity to move away from traditional print for items like programmes, saving us on costs while also providing a sleek, modern platform to showcase our events.

Drawbacks:

The security function should be available at all price points, but understandable that is tiered.

In sum:

It has been superb so far, easy to use and to send out to clients. Looks good and showcases our work perfectly.

Overall rating

Benefits:

I like the ease of use and the fact that you can edit/replace individual pages with out having to re-load the entire file. Use of links, embed features are big pluses as well.

Drawbacks:

Limitations on file size and amount of catalogs with certain packages.

In sum:

Over all I am very satisfied with the product and its functionality. I have never had to deal directly with the customer service staff, but I think that speaks to the ease of use that I have never had to.

«Flipsnack added value to my teaching!»

Overall rating

Benefits:

My lessons have become interesting as I am able to add pics, text, gifs, to the pdf files. My students have shown a lot of interest in the flipbooks that I create. I am deeply indebted to the team to help me whenever I was stuck. Overall a great tool that has enhanced my teaching.

Drawbacks:

I am not able to write or highlight the text while I use the full screen option. If this tool is added, it would be of great help.

In sum:

My students, colleagues have all liked it and I have received positive response about it.

«Professional upgrade»

Overall rating

Benefits:

This gives our small organization a way to upgrade our digital availability for our stakeholders. Options like downloading and printing allows for those who need a physical copy without us incurring the printing cost- so although there is a cost for the upgraded option on Flipsnack, its far less than printing costs.

Drawbacks:

I would have preferred to know about not being able to change the URL without an additional fee.

In sum:

Love the stats to verify how effective Flipsnack is for us!

«Terrible Customer Service»

Usability

Support

Features

3

Overall rating

Benefits:

I like the ease of setting up and formatting my magazine. Flipsnack has a great interface for creating. It is easy to embed and can be customized to fit any width website.

Drawbacks:

They do nothing on their end to help drive viewers. There is an app now but you evidently have to be part of a secret service to have your magazine included on the app. 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. When I talked to customer service about the issue, they did nothing and told me it just wasn't an option for me after not even understanding they had an app. I should have been offered a resolution, and I wasn't. The company itself isn't interested in supporting their customer's growth or giving us the option to create a sustainable product for our customers. Therefore, I'm out.

In sum:

Not pleasant. Again, my magazine is beautiful but the tools that are available to some for growth, aren't available to everyone and there is no rhyme or reason behind their secret decision.

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

Overall rating

Benefits:

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!

Drawbacks:

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.

In sum:

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.
