You don't have to buy anything at all unless you like the end result and there's a 60-day money back guarantee either way. Offers a unique way to present a "boring" document type. Could save you a lot of time if you were to do this yourself in Adobe Flash.Cons
People, especially in business, may be put off by this at first. There are similar products available.Verdict
I like this product and since you don't have to pay unless you like the end result, you can't lose.
REVIEW of "Instant Flip Book" (InstantFlipBook.com) - PDF to Flash Converter
If you've ever had to work with Acrobat or any other .PDF creator, you know that the end result can be pretty bland. You get a long document and you basically scroll down page after page reading it. If you're lucky, there's at least a few interesting images but that's not the case most of the time. The basic .PDF is also the standard format for most e-books you can read on the PC. Compare that to a cooler e-book format or online magazine site that allows you to flip pages and the latter is definitely more fun to read and more engaging.
Who Would Have A Use For Instant Flipbook?
Writers - Whether writing is your job or just a hobby, Instant Flipbook can give you a much nicer end product. To see exactly what I mean, search for any kind of free e-book right now on your PC. What you'll probably get is a giant document that you can move up and down only. Page 1 is under page 2, etc.. Of course you can change it to two pages on screen but then the text size gets too small to read.
Business Managers - The business implications for this product are pretty great. .PDF files are easy to work with, they just don't look fancy. You can easily whip up a catalog that showcases your newest products and/or services, run it through Instant Flipbook and send it to people on your mailing list or have it available to view right on your website.
Are There Any Limitations To Instant Flipbook?
There are a few limitations to this product and they are well explained on the official site. The most notable one is they don't save your finished product forever. You have 28 days to download it as much as you want so it's a good idea to make some backups on a SD card, disc, or online storage system. I threw in a very old .PDF and it worked, I created a brand new one and it also worked so I don't think there are any compatibility problems. I even tried it out using Windows 8 and it was fine.
Unfortunately, we were unable to find any user testimonials on this product or any other reviews. Really though, I'm not sure they'd help because you can use the product in its entirety right on the official website. Give it a whirl, there's no obligation to buy unless you choose to do so.
The Bottom Line
Instant Flipbook has a free flipbook creator right on the website and by plugging in any .PDF you can see what you'll end up with. I tinkered with it for a while and seemed to have pretty good results. Things were easy to read, the images I threw in were clear and crisp and it worked better than I thought. They have a 60-day money back guarantee and you don't actually have to buy anything until you make the flipbook and like it.
When I first saw this product I immediately thought it would be something amazing for people of all ages and in any profession. Teachers could have their students write short stories, writers could have a better sample product to pitch to a publisher or a business could show off their newest stuff. I only gave it an 8 because some businesses would freak out if you changed their normal style .PDF layout and that could cause problems and you could always do it yourself if you had enough time and knowledge.
