FlipViewer Xpress Creator enables publishers and corporations to create and publish page-flipping digital publications. It conveys the FlipBook in a 3-D page flipping interface, where pages are displayed like those in a real book. The created FlipBook can then be hosted on any web server for online viewing or distributed through any media for offline viewing.
Once the FlipBook is created, it can be easily viewed by the FlipViewer Xpress viewer. This is a viewer which can run on many different operating system platforms including Mac and Windows, as well as mobile gadgets such as iOS devices. The displayed thickness of the FlipBook in FlipViewer Xpress is indicative of the number of pages inside, allowing readers to “thumb” through it with the mouse. Readers can also perform keyword searches, bookmark pages, highlight passages and add comments using a virtual notepad while reading the FlipBook.
