More Reviews for Current Version
Getting better, still needs work - This version now has text option in Landscape mode and doesn't seem to crash as often. You really do need to take the developers serious when they advise pre planning. This is not a creative program, it is much more for implementing once you have all your creative ideas set. It has worked much better for me to create EVERYTHING on each of the pages (except text) in Keynote then export pages as JPEGs. I still have problems with slide shows crashing in the reader app when playing back. A couple of annoying bugs still include; no matter what I title my book in preference panel it saves it as "Book_name.edeezy" but when uploaded to my iPad the correct name magically appears, sometimes I can't open a saved book to modify or edit, and finally in the reader app, the circular icons that show a hyperlink to video or slide show, only appears AFTER it has played once (could be confusing to someone reading the pages for the first time.) The developers could really benefit from some heavy duty beta testing, especially considering the the initial price of this app. (I appreciate it when developers who, with new version 1 apps, offer them free first to get people working with it, then start charging once everything works.) One wish list item: a player/reader option in the publisher so you can test your book before exporting, right now you must send it to the iPad to discover you forgot to place a link, or it a link no longer works because you inserted a page somewhere after setting the link. Past review for version 001: I really want this program to work, and I really want to create interactive multimedia presentations for the iPad (something Keynote should do but won't without hyperlinks!) First there are several problems with the publisher program, it is clunky, crashes easily, the text option is missing in landscape mode and there is no layout capabilities (resize, position, crop etc.) Then once published the reader also has problems. The pages play back in reverse of how they are labeled during creation, the links don't always seem to work and worst of all any attempt to play a slide show on a page crashes the whole app. Support at the EDeezy site is limited to one page and outdated with a promise that some bugs for the reader will be fixed in version 2.1, but the appstore is already offering version 2.2. Very disappointing since, did I mention I REALLY want this program to work? Please fix and update soon!
