It's great for presentations. It makes even the most drab presentation more interesting, and gives you the ability to add animated elements to your presentation. Everybody uses Microsoft PowerPoint, but for Mac it's a little slow and unresponsive. Flip PDF Pro for Mac kind of solves that issue – you can build your project in InDesign, export it out, then import it into Flip PDF Pro. It sounds like a bit of a process but it's actually very easy. Any designer can pick it up and run with it.

For Linux users it is without a doubt the best option and the most developed so far.

Pros
FlipBuilder
  • You can customize or add certain things like your title, logo, toolbar icon appearance, background, fonts, etc. It feels a lot like a design program – which is nice, as a designer.
  • The program allows you to embed almost any sort of media into your flip book – GIFs are easy to add in and work with, they add a dynamic element to your presentation (which wasn't possible before).
  • You can create these things called “hot spots” – basically certain trigger areas in your document that can activate something when clicked – like take you to a e-commerce site, for example.

Cons
FlipBuilder
  • My documents sometimes had a problem with import and output – sometimes it would take a substansial amount of time to export something.
  • In their mulit-lingual version, our freelance linguist caught some mistakes, some words were not translated or translated into other languages – which can make us look pretty bad.
  • There's a limit on audio you can output for each page in your document – it had to be "one audio for two pages".

  • I would like to be able to generate indexes of the documents that I am adding to a file.
  • To be able to scan a file and convert it from a PDF simply having the scan parameters.

As I answered before, the graphical interface is the best developed of the options that exist for Linux.

There are several PDF conversion programs out there, but really Flip PDF Pro for Mac is probably the best one that I've encountered. The amount of versatility in the program really sells it to me. It works just like a design program, but as a customizable PDF, and it's easy-to-use interface really helps speed things up with our workflow and process. There's a lot of competitors out there, but none of them really stack up.

PDF Studio doesn't involve an expensive subscription, plus has all the features without the cluttered UI. It is intuitive to use and I prefer it to Adobe Acrobat, Foxit, PDF XChange, AcePDF, and others. Minimal design with refined tools. Frankly, I am just relieved to have a perpetual license for a product that just works.
