If you click on the developers link at the top of this page, you get the message

Sorry, the page /fontcase could not be found.

and it redirects you to another app of theirs (Sketch?)
[Version 2.1.8]

In principle this looks a nice app.
On testing it, I can see that bookmarks have been transferred from the pdf, but links in the flip book do not seem to do anything.

This rather defeats the object for me.

As of now (April) this on sale elsewhere for $35, so it is tempting.

Seems I'm not the only one disappointed with the latest version of Pages.

Just loading my first document of the day, which relies on facing pages, only to find it can't do facing pages anymore. What a nightmare, and such a basic feature too. Grrr.

Thank goodness I hadn't deleted the '09 version.
[Version 5.0]

Interesting to see that version 3 is now available in the App store.

Bought a copy of Heredis Mac X.2 in 2006 for $69
Version 2 arrived June 2012, special price $59
Version 2.2 arrived in the AppStore July 2013 $10 (iirc)
Now Heredis 2014 (version 3) for $30 (50% off they say).

Mmm. Shall I upgrade or not? I'm rather fed up with having to keep paying for it:-(

I noted that MacUpdate desktop shows that the current version is 2.4, but when I emailed the company this morning to check, they said that 1.9 was the current version.

2 April 2011 and the NovaMind 5 first beta release is now available.

There have been quite a few comments before about the interface, but I found v4 a nice app. However, the version 5 app is very late arriving and now it has (almost) I'm finding it very frustrating to use.

If you want to move a topic cell around, you have to wait for a little popup to appear, which you then grab with the mouse to move the cell. Ugghhh:-(

Interesting to note that Readiris Pro 12 is available on MacZot today (31 Mar 2011) at $59.
Notwithstanding my other comments I might have been interested in upgrading but I just don't trust the company.

Tried to download and use this and you just get a message that "this version has expired"

It appears from their web site that the alpha version expired on 1st Dec 2010. (It now being 18 Jan 2011)

In general I like this app with its uncluttered approach, however, when importing excel data to produce some simple line charts (like the inverse sine curve) it produces some strange kinks in the curve which looks really odd especially as a sine curve is supposed to be nice and smooth. Increasing the number of data points doesn't necessarily help either.

Datagraph does a nice job but is pricy.
