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.

Overall: 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: Flip PDF is an easy-to-use file editor that allows me to convert my documents into interactive books, which makes the presentation of my projects more striking, this has templates to present animated books with different characteristics and also has the possibility that I can customize my book or brochure and now I can also integrate existing audios in the pages of the book

Cons: It is an editor that I consider does not present any disadvantage that is significant to highlight

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.

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