Review by OnTheEast

Super useful utility. Best in a small but critical class of apps - Putting together a booklet by cutting, pasting, re-copying, and such is a huge pain and wastes time and paper. The task of organizing and laying out printing pages so that they are in the right order and orientation is called imposition. They are not many imposition apps in the world, and most of they are made for professional printers (and therefore are expensive and complicated) or too simple to be useful (like the built-in Layout section of the standard print dialog). Create Booklet is perfect for someone who makes booklets for small manuals, church bulletins, or user guides. Also a great way to save paper archives (a booklet takes 1/4 the amount of paper as a single-sided doc). Create Booklet has almost all features an app like this needs for non-professional use: landscape and portrait layouts, signatures (sub-booklets for longer docs), compensation for “creep” (when multiple sheets are folded together), printing 2-up. Also lets you add page numbers when printing, and print books that open on the left (as with Hebrew).

Review by Sunshine1700

Regret this Purchase - —Not intuitive —No online help —Odd installation. I first had to install the app, then had to download and install something else to update my menus to reflect the Create Booklet app. —Very cumbersome to use - too many steps and required to get the booklet the way I want it. —Documents with a total page count that is not a multiple of four seem to confuse it. E.g., I was able to get it to correctly set up a booklet that had 16 pages, but it did not correctly set up a document with 17 pages. For the 17-page booklet, it added 3 blank pages within the booklet (not at the end) to give it a total of 20 pages. —Additionally, this app simply shrunk my pages for me so that each fit on half of an 8-1/2 by 11 (which made my text far too tiny to read), and reordered the pages so that they would print as a booklet (again, with the caveat that the total number of pages had to be a multiple of 4). —I regret this purchase and have uninstalled the app. From now on, I will wait until there are a significant number of positive reviews about a given app in the App store before I buy. —For booklets only, I am going back to MS Publisher until I can find an equivalent app for my Mac.

Review by Amateur Marcus

Only does simplest printing/imposition - I tried to figure out before I bought this app, whether it would print 4-up per side and it does not. It is only smart enough to split whatever page size you give it, into two (2-up). If you need to create a booklet (signature or folio) with say, 4 leaves out of a single 8.5x11” paper, you cannot do it via this app. I suppose I should have messaged the devs before buying it since their webpage and other collaterals do not contain anything about this.

Review by mtaylorj89

Amazing product for zines, comics, and more - If you own a Mac and want to print at home without purchasing something like Adobe Acrobat or Publisher, you’re going to struggle a bit. Personally I’m on a 2014 MBP and a Canon ImageClass MF632Cdw and was having trouble printing my latest comic. I tried Adobe Reader (awful and crashed all the time), Preview (tolerable but not great), and refused to touch Pages. Finally I googled “software for making zines” and stumbled across this little gem. Best $10 I ever spent on my art work, and now I am able to print amazing copies of my comics. I am thrilled. Works beautifully with my printer, no issues so far. Very highly recommended. - a very happy indie comic artist and zinester

Review by Surf182

Create Booklet is Awesome! - I have a small business and we do a lot of printing on a very expensive copier, but with all the bells and whistles on the machine, I still could not get it to print booklets correctly…, until I installed and used Create Booklet! Overall, this app has provided me an opportunity to provide quality booklets to my clients during training and presentations, greatly enhaning the experience and in return, sales. It is saving me time and money not having to mess with settings, rotations and eliminating waste. Easy to use and intuitive Create Booklet gets it done! Highly recommended!
