Version 1.2.3
Review by CalvinMartin

Brilliant! Absolutely brilliant (from a book publisher & author) - Let’s establish context, here. I don’t know about the other reviewers, except to say that if they are not giving his app full marks — well, let’s leave it at that. I’ve published prize-winning books with major university presses. Won heavyweight book awards. Sold tens of thousands of my books. My friends are university press directors and managing editors. Blah blah blah. You get the picture. Secondly, I’m a retired professor from an Ivy League university. Third, I run a tiny book imprint, with considerable success. One of our books sold worldwide, in the thousands, translated into 8 different languages. Discussed in leading, international media (newspapers, magazines, TV, radio). Etc. Okay. Vellum. Fabulous! This is my first foray into eBooks. I checked out other apps, other programs. Vellum beats the pants off them. To call this program elegant is an understatement. It’s intuitive. Brilliantly designed. Makes producing an eBook a pleasure. (Note: Producing books is not a pleasure, under normal circumstances.) The people who designed this: Take it from me, they’re brilliant. They know book writing and publishing. That is, they know the business. Their eBooks look and perform gorgeously on Kindle, iBooks, BookReader, etc. As for customer support: It’s outstanding. I have had occasion to ask several questions of the Vellum team — and they get back to me, often literally, in minutes. They have walked me through spots I was unfamiliar with. Even when I write to them in the evening, they respond. A final note. Their website. Visit it. (I make websites.) This is about the classiest website I’ve ever seen. Just like Vellum itself: the epitome of elegance. Calvin Luther Martin, PhD

Version 1.2.4
Review by Vorgan Haze

29.99 for just a book!!! Are you insane? - I won’t even comment on whether the app is god or not, it is irrelevant, because at that price, I will never consider using it. What about Sigil? You can get an infinite amount of ebooks for free. Or Scrivener, where you pay once (an a very cheap price) and then you get all the benefits forever. Those prices are ridiculous. Sorry guys!
