First let’s tally up those so-called mobile devices. They include iPad, iPhone and Android. Many people know our software support mobile output but do not know about how the mobile version of flipbook runs on their devices. This article helps you figure it out. We start from FlipBook Creator.

If you have FlipBook Creator installed, please double click its desk icon to launch. The program interface looks user-friendly most likely for the intuitive settings listed left and the real-time preview window. Any changes of structure of flipping book can be reflected on the preview window. Even though you are a non-expert of computer, you know how to import a PDF, how to configure and output. As you see, all the options are so frankly that you can easily find them out.

Generally we publish them online. One thing to note,  this directory contains a folder of mobile for iPad, iPhone and Android devices only can be viewed on your chrome browser of computer both non- networking or well-networking. To view on mobile devices, we have to upload them online and visit it on the mobile with well networking by entering its URL (online address) on the address area of mobile browsers. That is to say, we can’t transmit the output files in the SD card and check it without networking and we can’t view any file separately without other files in the same directory support.

If you still have not a website, you would be interested in the 3rd part of host service such as DropBox to publish your flipping files. More info, please read this FAQ: Publish flipbook online without your own website?
