Most of you already know that I’m fond of cheap software but good tools!!!
Today, I’m back to you with a new software from flipbuilder.com that I tested and let me an enthusiast, even I don’t like to use an iPad or other apple devices. In fact, what I appreciate at first is that the software runs on windows PC too.
After testing FlipPDF, Flip PDF Pro, Flip PowerPoint Pro and other, this is the time of a new born called Flip PDF for iPad .
Yes, you understand correctly! How you guessed in 5 minutes can have your PDF flipping in your iPad. Follow me and see!
First time you start the program you get this screen and as you can see it is divided in two sections.
Left side you can manage all settings and right part shows an iPad frame with your flipbook.
Step 2 – Select Template
Before importing your PDF, I suggest you to click the template button and choose a theme from the selection list provided.
It can be used how basic theme to be modified at will using the background and page settings.
Step 3 – Import PDF
Import now your PDF and in the prompt panel can choose among different quality as well other options, then click OK.
Step 4 – Customization – Background – Title Book – Title Bar
After importing your PDF you can use the left panel to adjust the parameter and make your personal settings which can be saved and recall for a later use. In the details you can set the book title, the book logo, a book description and choose an URL to link the logo at your preferred external website. You can also decide to hide the fast scrolling arrows on the screen so, to get your book wider. We let them in place.
