Spring comes with exciting changes for our users. Our team has worked hard to deliver a new look and functionality for our flipbook player in order to improve user experience. When we’re talking about flipbook player, we understand the entire flipbook, with its background and toolbar options.
The Enhanced flipbook player is still in beta version, your opinion is important to us so in the meantime you can try it out and leave us improvement suggestions regarding it.
After you’re done creating your flipbook or want to edit an old one, the next steps you have to take is to customize and publish it.
At Customize, besides Classic and Modern, you will see that we have a new option: Enhanced. This means that you will now have three different ways to display toolbar options in your flipbook player.
The new flipbook player, Enhanced, is free and available for all users.
A better reading experience for your readers
The new flipbook player is more than just a new skin or a new look. The technology behind it is new as well, with the code for the page flip effect and all of the options having been written from scratch.
Enhanced is a more advanced flipbook player, with the technology developed in-house by our development team. Faster and more user-friendly, with a new and simple design, fully responsive and optimized across different devices, even for mobile, for a better all-around reading experience.
Another reason was to improve our website UI (user interface) to make Accessibility more adjustable for people with disabilities. When you’re using Enhanced, the Accessibility feature will open automatically if you have a screen-reader and if the option is selected to be shown in the flipbook player.
Your readers will now experience a more real reading experience because of the improved readability that provides the best display solution, based on the reader screen size device. The flip effect is more natural, to maximize the sensation of browsing through a real book when readers are dragging the page.
Also, when you want to embed a flipbook on your website, the new look of our flipbook player will fit perfectly into your website design, having a more
polished and up-to-date look.
The main differences between Classic, Modern and Enhanced
Besides technical differences, the new flipbook player look comes with a new and fresh design.
When you’re using Enhanced, the controls you’ve selected for your flipbooks will be displayed below your flipbook, even when you’re not in fullscreen mode and the logo will appear now in the upper left corner of the flipbook player.
Control buttons (share options, allow fullscreen, enable PDF download, enable PDF print, search, table of contents) have a new and simple design.
The navigation bar got a complete overhaul with a focus on usability. We added a blue color slider to show flipbook progress while reading.
Zoom in/ Zoom out work smoother and now you can use double click to zoom content from your flipbook.
The flip effect is a more natural and realistic one, users can easily grab the page corner with the mouse and the page curls and turn as you drag it.
Lead forms were previously in Design Studio and now have been moved to Customize. From here it is much easier to add a lead-form to your flipbook and you can view it in real-time.
What should I do if I want to use Enhanced for my flipbooks?
If you want to use Enhanced for your flipbooks you need to go to My flipbooks, edit the flipbook you want, from Customize select Enhanced and then Publish it. You have to do this for every flipbook separately.
Important limitations of the Enhanced flipbooks player
For the moment, Sell and Bookshelf options will work only with Classic and Modern.
Options as Shadows on-page, Hard cover effect, Right to left orientation, Auto-flip pages and Flip sounds are coming soon.
We hope you like our flipbook player’s new look and functionality and that you'll start using it to the fullest, to make your brand and flipbooks stand out. If you have questions or improvement suggestions regarding it, we’d be delighted to hear from you. Please contact us via live chat.
