In this article we’re going to discuss what sets Kvisoft FlipBook Maker Pro apart from its younger brother Kvisoft FlipBook Maker – in essence outlining the major features and benefits Kvisoft FlipBook Maker Pro has. This should help you to decide whether the Pro version is for you or if the standard version will suffice. So without further ado, check out the below for the major things Kvisoft FlipBook Maker Pro has that the standard version lacks.
KVISoft FlipBook Maker Pro – Full Breakdown
- Dynamic and bubble text.
First up, Kvisoft FlipBook Maker Pro enables you to insert dynamic and bubble text on any page of your digital publication. This feature enables you to create more dynamic and feature rich pages and is something that is lacking in the standard version of the software. Admittedly, this may not be a big deal to some though.
- Photo gallery support.
Kvisoft FlipBook Maker Pro allows you to easily add and embed native as well as Flickr photo galleries into your digital publications pages. This is something that is lacking in Kvisoft FlipBook Maker. Of course you can have images in your publication with the standard version but they will have to be included in the source file when you import it into the software and cannot be embedded later as they can be when using Kvisoft FlipBook Maker Pro.
- Embed local and online video.
Kvisoft FlipBook Maker Pro allows you to easily embed video from your laptop/computer and crucially online video from hugely popular sites like Youtube and Vimeo. As of 2016, a large percentage of online consumption is in video form and many research companies estimate that by 2018 as much 70% of everything consumed online will be video.
So bearing this in mind, the fact that Kvisoft FlipBook Maker doesn’t let you embed video is a big issue – but on the flipside the Pro version of the software lets you embed video effortless with the click of a button.
- Insert Dynamic Flash (SWF) into pages.
Inserting dynamic and highly engaging flash animations into your pages is a painless experience with Kvisoft FlipBook Maker Pro, unfortunately the same cannot be said for the standard version of the software. The standard version, Kvisoft FlipBook Maker, does not allow you to embed flash which in our opinion severely limits your ability to make your digital publication as engaging, dynamic and interesting as it possibly could be.
- Add shapes.
Kvisoft FlipBook Maker Pro lets you easily add shapes to your digital publication which really aids you in illustrating things as well as making pages more dynamic and interesting. No such luck with the standard version I’m afraid. The standard version doesn’t let you add shapes from within the software however you can still add shapes with whichever software you used to create the original input source file.
- Set actions for buttons and images.
This is quite a big one. With the Pro version of the software you can easily set actions for inserted buttons and images. So for example, you can make it so that when you click a specific image or button on the digital publication it takes you to a specific page, or opens an external link, or a pop up window, or plays a media file – the options are endless. Nothing of the sort is available for the standard version of the software however. This is quite a large drawback and we believe it really limits how engaging your digital publication can be.
So as you can see, there are quite a number of things you can do with Kvisoft FlipBook Maker Pro that you can’t do with Kvisoft FlipBook Maker. With the Pro version you can; create dynamic and bubble text, embed native and Flickr photo galleries, embed native and online video (e.g. Youtube and Vimeo), embed dynamic flash (SWF) files, add dynamic shapes. Oh and last but not least the Pro version allows you to set actions for buttons and shapes which can lead to opening a specific page within the publication, an external link, a media file, a pop window and so on.
So it’s quite evident when looking at all of the above that there are some severe limitations with Kvisoft FlipBook Maker, and that overall Kvisoft FlipBook Maker Pro enables you to create more interesting, dynamic, media and feature rich digital publications.
