Perfect Publishing Programme for a Novice With A Mac I have never, ever used a publishing programme before and found this one very easy to learn, with loads of tutorials and videos. It’s also such a great price for what it is. The help and support I received from the technical team was second to none and the time they took to help me get what I needed, probably far outweighed the cost of the product. (Special thanks to Andy). I have just started volunteering for a cat charity as the newsletter editor and need to produce a 24 page quarterly newsletter in booklet form, in both print and email versions, for distribution to our supporters. The result of my very first newsletter was very positive, considering I had never done anything like this before. I love it and am so pleased that I opted for this one!

This MacUpdate page is out of date. iStudio is now at version 4.1. Version four apparently was a major release as in, it has added features. It's a very good app to have. I have not used it nearly to it's capacity but, I am glad to have a fully competent page layout and design program when I need it. I also use Swift for quick and dirty stuff like, Facebook banners and announcement flyers. That is because Swift has a very nice built in image library. But when it comes to the heavy lifting of formal page layout - with good templates to start from, I still go to iStudio. As such, given that this is a comment block and not a rating, I would give iStudio five stars.

This is the absolute best program using a Mac for preparing books to publish on CreateSpace (the Amazon book publishing subsidiary)! Easy to learn and works like a charm when other apps such as MicroSoft Word, Libre and Open Office, fail to pass all the CreateSpace requirements. Love it! Love it!

I own this software and appreciate its performance but unfortunately it has a flaw that makes it difficult for me to use it in my everyday computing. I know that many users might not need such feature and therefore never bother about it but it is essential to me. iStudio Publisher doesn’t simply support right-to-left scripts like Persian, Arabic or Hebrew. If you are one of those who have to deal with texts of this kind then you’d better look for other alternatives like “Swift Publisher” or “PrintWorks”. As for the rest, it’s an extremely reliable software and I do recommend it. Fariborz AMIRSHAHI - Verona (Italy)

Everyone talks about customer care - or the lack of it. Well, if things don't go according to plan, just contact iStudio Publisher. Apart from doing "exactly what it says on tin", the software is superb, but the BIGGEST PLUS is the customer support which, quite simply, is superb I just hope that none of the support staff decide to migrate to BT or any other company !

Love this program. So easy to use. I do wish you could edit actual images a bit more in there but other than that it does everything I could hope for and more. Fantastic and really good value for money. Have put it on all my business computers.

I am a "self-teaching" desktop publisher. Several years ago, I downloaded iStudio Publisher and have been extremely pleased with it ever since. The software is very user friendly and intuitive, and it allows me to do everything I need to do with a very small learning curve. Although it is not a drawing program, I am still able to create small icons and graphics easily with professional looking results. The preparation of multipage instructional lessons consisting of photographs, graphic representations of equipment in industry, and text can be a challenge. However, iStudio Publisher has allowed me to learn as I go and still prepare very professional layouts on various sizes of pages. In addition, the recently added option of "Export Document as a Booklet" is a fabulous feature for publishing booklets for viewing on iPads and computer screens without numerous added steps. The clients have been very impressed with the end products. Any review would be lacking without reference to the customer support provided by the developer. Again, as a novice to desktop publishing, I have had numerous questions, especially at the beginning of my learning. The customer support at iStudio is beyond great! They are prompt, thorough, and go the extra mile to offer solutions for any question asked, they respond within hours, (not days!), and are so patient, informative, and friendly. They also listen to suggestions and requests for future updates and consider those ideas for development as possible. All in all, I could not be happier with a software/app or the people behind the scenes!!!

It is a "great" program. I used it already for 4 years on my iMac and now on my MacBook Pro too... Easy to use, much possibilities for Desktop Publishing: making cards, brochures etc. Important: Tutorials, templates and excellent and quick service by a.o. Andy! A recommended program for the Mac.

Great software!!! It's super intuitive and easy to use. I recently had problems opening an iStudio project I was working on due to it's large file size, and Andy in support addressed my issues immediately, in fact, he went above and beyond. I sent him the file and he organized it into smaller sections for me, enabling me to finish my project hassle free. Excellent customer service!!!

iStudio doesn't important the native Pages file format, and Pages doesn't save as RFT. There is no satisfactory way I can see to important pre-formatted text into iStudio from the main word processor used on Macs.

My husband and I are working on our third book using I studio for all of our layout. We are not publishers. I am a retired nurse and my husband is an artist. We knew nothing about layout when we started this process. Our first book has been won a finalist award in the two contests that we entered!!!! We are in our 60's and not whizzes on the computer. I used my very first computer when I was 45 years old ! Consequently, we have relied heavily on i Studio Support, which is THE BEST .. The responses are timely, accurate, and almost always solve our problem. If the problem continues, they stay with us until we get a resolution. I can't recommend this application highly enough.

I have used iStudio for over a year now, and find it a very easy program to use. Its ability to write text on a curve and use opacity grade to images helps tremendously when printing many copies of flyers, announcements, etc. - ink savings being a plus for any shop. Not clear to me is the nature of callout and quote balloons, since they do not easily place in documents for me (I don't use them much, so it is not a drawback that is of real concern). My only disappointment is in the tardy posting of updates to the Mac App Store (where I first saw it and purchased the app), which makes me want to ditch that venue for this one. Would I be able to "transfer", as any update here would treat me as a trial user and ask me to pay again? Will contact them to see.

We are some parents and teachers who are creating a schoolmagazin for our small elementary school with iStudio Publisher in Germany. After review of a few DTP apps we found iStudio as the very best app for our need. Now we launched our first 52 pages schoolmagazin and feedback from everybody is awsome. Thanks to iStudio and its team.

I left my original review in the 3 Licence Pack location but decided to publish it here as well for general info Urbanmeister Member Icon COMMENT +0 UrbanmeisterNov 17, 2014+0I've been playing with this program for a couple of weeks now and must admit to being impressed. Currently I use InDesign CS6 and have found it fit for purpose but with a steep learning curve. However, the deal breaker for me was their move to CC and the rental thing. Ain't going to happen, hence my search for another DTP. Came across iStudio Publisher and have been very pleased. Initially there were some issues but the speed and friendliness of the responses from the team separates this company from its competition. Keep in mind this program is still in development and those involved will be adding stuff as they complete the testing. Finally, the pricing is extremely fair. In sum, fast response from the company to queries; great customer relations attitude; continuous development; great price and a 30 day trial period of the full program. Not bad in my book. It's definitely worth a look.

I LOVE iStudioPublisher! It is so “friendly” to use and yet can do so much. It is EXACTLY what I've been looking for. And I love the detailed support they provide on site. Their customer support is quick to respond, warm, friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful. I had been a Quark fan for years but I couldn't afford to buy it again when I upgraded my computer. Now I'm so glad because I like this program much better. It is much more flexible and has many more creative options. I love it that I have so much control over objects and text. I can put them exactly where I want them on a page. The program is set up so intuitively, it's as if they've anticipated all my needs. I'm very excited to have discovered it. My mind smiles every time I use it. Awesome program! ~ Kai, http://www.wellbeingalignment.com

This has been the best app. I purchased this quite a while ago. This price is fantastic. I paid a lot more for the same version as this earlier. I have used Pages as well as other applications and this has been great for putting together a quarterly 16 page condominium newsletter. The newsletter looks professional as if I had an outside company create it. Even adding graphics has been easy. If you are not sure of how to use a feature you can go back and watch the videos. They are short enough and get right to the point. I highly recommend this application. I recommend if you purchase this watch the help videos. You will get a lot more out of this application.
