Check the report.

PDF to FlashBook Professional is a comprehensive conversion tool that transforms your static PDF files into attractive and animated page-flipping e-books. The program covers the whole conversion process, and produces high-quality electronic books and magazines, complete with a Flash player for the user to move around the document in a convenient and comfortable way.

Its stylish tabbed interface has been designed to serve all potential users. Each tab covers one of the three main steps required to produce the book – add a PDF file, apply a layout to it, and publish your book. The first step is to load your source document and start designing how the future Flash book will behave. The list of settings available may look a bit overwhelming at first for some users, but do not panic – even if you decide to leave the default values unchanged, you can be sure that the resulting Flash book will be of a high standard. However, if you have the time to browse around the various groups of settings available, you will be able to define the language of the text, to set auto and loop play capabilities, set time lapses for automatic playback, add metadata to the book, add thumbnails, customize which buttons will be included in the player and how they will behave, add a background sound, and many, many more. You can save all these settings as a profile for reuse with another file or a new set of files (batch conversion).

The next step deals with the layout of the Flash player itself. You are offered a wide range of templates, which you can always customize. Here you can also set as many bookmarks as needed and build a convenient table of contents to ease the navigation process. When publishing the book, you are offered various options – you can create a webpage in HTML format, a ZIP archive for easy distribution, a self-executing EXE file, or an APP. As a bonus, the program can also add to the format selected a “mobile version” compatible with your iPad, iPhone, and any Android mobile device.

Regardless of the output format you choose, the resulting book or magazine will surely meet your expectations. Some may say that PDF to FlashBook Professional is a bit pricey, and they are probably right. However, the product it delivers is of the highest standard.
