Version 4.0.3
Review by SVmark

A hell of a lot better than the current Apple Pages - The title says it all. A hell of a lot bettet than Apple’s Pages. Watch the excellent videos then play around a little, soon you will see how good this program really is. And tech support is top notch. If you ask them a question you will get an answer, the next morning at the latest. If you do booklets this program really shines, when you do the export to booklet it really nails it, the best I have seen in this price range. This is more of a page layout program than a word processor. For a few dollars more you can get a decent array of clip art. If you buy their other programs the clip art is shared with most of those programs as well. You can get a free trial on their web site. Try it, you’ll like it.

Version 4.0.3
Review by MrSteveee

Poor Customer Support - I was forced to upgrade to this version because the company refused to provide any support for version 3, which stopped working. I had too many documents to just quit it. The app works well enough, but I do not recommend anyone purchase this due to the lack of support.

Best publisher on Mac - I have tried many publishers on Mac and this is the best one I have found. This is the easiest to use and has the most features especially for the price. I use this constantly even in place of a office document writer.

Review by Bongiob66

Amazing power for low price - I have used this program intensely for the past 6 months, for some art projects and a church newsletter. It’s not perfect, but it is very impressive for such a low cost.
