Reviews

A great way to create an ebook fast

I tried it to create a fast ebook with some of my content and I was very happy with the result.

When I tried it, it still has some bugs to fix but even with this, the result was amazing. I couldn’t have done it in such a small period of time with other tools.

So I recommend it.

A great way to leverage content

Just tried the plugin and tool today and it works great. It was easy to import just the posts I wanted (based on WordPress tags) then format them with the intuitive layout tool provided.

Cool stuff 🙂

I watched the video at Beacon and just liked the idea of creating pdfs from my blogposts so easily and quickly. It was the WP plugin that convinced me to sign up and I really like it.
