Pros: 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.

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

Overall: 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!

Pros: I use flipsnack to make a online catalog for work. It is perfect for doing so and makes the catalog very easy to share. The interface is very user friendly and easy to use. Definitely was a great decision to go with flipsnack and i would recommend anyone to do the same!

Cons: Missing some features such as being able to change the size after the catalog is already made however when looking for a feature you can easily message their support team. They are so responsive and great!

Overall: Happy that I decided to go with flip snack. As previously mentioned their interface is very user friendly and its a great program to create online catalogs!!

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.

Overall: 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: It is very user-friendly. The UX makes navigating the creation process simple. The ability to embed and share is also easy. I can spend more time on what we create than how it appears.

Cons: Not quite sure yet. I wouldn't say that I am a power user, so there maybe more features that I haven't explored enough to run into an issue.

Overall: Easy to implement catalog hosting. Drag and drop functioning. Quick cataloging capabilities. Great product!

Pros: The software is easy to use - upload a document and it does all the work on the backend. When completed, you're left with a professional, interactive, and easily shareable document which is great for internal and external audiences alike.

Cons: I wouldn't say it was a con, but I would love it if I could customize the url and white label it to my company without any mention of Flipsnack - even if it came as part of a premium package. Though to be honest, I don't know that it is not possible now, my review is based only on what I have seen from the system as is. That would be my only suggestion, but currently, the only mention of FlipSnack is very discreet.

Thank you so much for the nice review!
Just wanted to let you know that it is possible to customize the URL (move your profile and your flipbooks to a subdomain on your site), with the Elite plan.
Please contact us to get more information and pricing.

Pros: The finished product looks nice and is easy for our customers to look through our eBooks.

Cons: We use InDesign to create our eBooks so we create the interactivity in the main document and, after applying it to Flipsnack, need to re-do the interactivity again for it to be applied to the Flipsnack version of the eBook. We also experience some issues when publishing it to our learning management system.

Overall: We have problems with customer support getting back to us in a timely fashion and can't seem to solve our issues.

Thank you for the review! It is very important for us to hear about the issues that you've experienced with our tool and with our customer support.
The links that you've added in InDesign should automatically work in Flipsnack, if they are added correctly as hyperlinks. Please contact us again.
We promise we will investigate this problem in a timely manner.

Pros: Been using flipsnack for over a year. I'm a developer but sometimes things get overly complicated. This literally takes mins to do what could take me 3-4 times longer or more manually.

Cons: I wish there was a more automated/quicker way to add links in the catalog. Takes a long time for catalogs that need 100+ links

Pros: I like the ability to take a flipsnack and turn it into a pdf I can download as well as upload a pdf to turn it into a flipsnack. This back and both is very convenient.

Cons: Sometimes the layout can be touch when I am designing my flipsnacks. There are also not as many creative options as say InDesign or even Word

Overall: It is a good experience. Again it has allowed me to turn existing pdf's into more engaging marketing tools by uploading them to flipsnack

Pros: Ease of use and converts from PDF quickly.

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

Overall: 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: I liked that this tool gave a forum upon which to highlight my work.

Cons: I think the cost is too high and that a teacher discount should be an option.

Overall: This is a great option if you have it in your budget to afford sleek tools for showcasing work. However, there are some less expensive options for those on a tighter budget.
