Flip PDF makes e-book production an easy and rewarding task. Not only it allows you to transform your PDF files into attractive e-books and e-magazines, but it also adds a stunning page-flip effect to them that enhances your reading experience and adds value to your electronic publications. The resulting e-book can be saved as a ZIP archive, a self-executing EXE file, an HTML webpage, or an Apple APP file for easy and convenient distribution.

The program comes with a wide choice of templates, scenes, and other background images to help you add a stylish touch to your Flash animation. The Flash player itself comes with all the controls you need to navigate the book or magazine in a simple and intuitive way. This level of intuitiveness is not so easy to find in the application itself though, with a mixture of tabs, buttons, and menus that may not be easy to master for the less experienced users.

Probably one of the main assets of this utility is the variety of formats in which you can save your electronic publication once produced – as a self-executable EXE file, as a small ZIP archive, as an Apple APP, an HTML webpage with the e-book conveniently embedded in it, or as an FBR file, a proprietary format for which you will need to download the program’s own e-book reading tool.

Finally, it is important to note that Flip PDF allows for batch conversion – this feature will allow you to produce any number of electronic documents using your favorite templates and settings, thus adding a uniform look and feel to all your e-publications. I recommend you to download the trial version and play around with it for a while first as soon as you get used to the program interface and its multiple features, then you will start producing pro-looking e-publications in no time.
