    "Cool piece of software"

    October 02, 2013   |   By cssensei

    Version: 3D Issue 6.1

    Pros

    - Can create digital magazines for tablets and smartphone from almost any kind of files (rss, pdf, pictures).
    - Free trial for 30 days in which I can test with my potential customers
    - The magazine has some awesome flipping effects :)

    Cons

    Don't use it when you have a very slow internet connection! The import of big pdf files takes forever.

    Summary

    I'm in my last days of the free trial version. So far the app works neat and it's very easy to create a responsive digital magazine.

    "Great investment"

    October 01, 2013   |   By Dodee75

    Version: 3D Issue 6.1

    Pros

    Multi-device compatibility for publications. Really like the pinch zoom functionality on iPad. Easy to use interface and found the customer service excellent, great support!

    Cons

    None so far!

    Summary

    3D issue is the whole package - great software. Staff are just brilliant to deal with, quick to respond. They have a great working knowledge and nothing is ever too difficult for them to deal with. It has totally advanced the way we distribute magazines. We can now reach a larger audience thanks to the 6.1 update - it was my best investment.

    "Great when it works...which is rare."

    September 13, 2013   |   By DizzySoft

    Version: 3D Issue 6.1

    Pros

    Simple interface and very easy to use...when it works.

    Cons

    I have had TONS of problems with this software. I've experienced one glitch after another, and have had to restart projects on multiple occasions, which I had already spent hours working on. Each time I put together a publication with 3D issue, my fingers are tightly crossed that nothing will go wrong. On the rare occasion that it works well, it's great software, but unfortunately in my experience (about a year of usage), those instances are few and far between. I've been dealing with the software because of the money we spent on it, but I'm just about ready to take the loss and move onto something else.

    "Brilliant interface and top rate customer service too."

    November 26, 2012   |   By galaxydesign

    Version: 3D Issue 5.2

    Pros

    I've been using 3D Issue now since Version 3 and the software works as described across the board it is easy to work with for designer and non-designer alike. The customer service levels are top notch and the publications are great my first choice for publishing for web every time!

    Cons

    If I had one it is that their RSS feed reader is a standalone application and is still in beta www.pressjack.com

    "Great magazines easy to use looks good fast to learn."

    November 26, 2012   |   By macahead72

    Version: 3D Issue 5.2

    Pros

    I downloaded and then purchased for our computer user group so we can create e-newsletters that are a 'bit' better than our current e-mail format and this worked a treat we get more and more people now on our mailing list because of this because it can be shared. One link for each publication too so they be shared on any screen.

    Cons

    You have to have a server as they do not provide any hosting.

    Summary

    Really recommend and the Lite is a good deal with many of the Professional software features we bought Lite then moved to Professional afterwards.

    "Cannot be customized as promised :("

    August 24, 2012   |   By MWMAPrague

    Version: 3D Issue 5.2

    Pros

    There are far better solutions for far less money if you want a more customized Flash version of a flip book.

    I guess if you do not mind sacrificing any and all customization than at least it will work on i-devices...

    Cons

    The advertise customization and give you a trial version that works in Flash (despite the fact the program is for HTML5) and even their customer service rep by phone and email confirmed they would work the same... To our surprise and considerable investment of time and money we find out they do not work the same and that there are MORE limitations in the paid versions.

    Summary

    -No real level of customization available
    -You pay to advertise them on your website
    -Customer service works with canned answers
    -trial version and paid version are FAR from the same
    -Paid HTML5 has less customization than the trial Flash version
    Be VERY careful about using this software and make sure you do not have grand ideas of customization.

    Updated on Aug 27, 2012

    I would like to update this review as there have been changes since posting:
    1. It was finally explained correctly that we SHOULD be using the Flash version which if accessed by a mobile device gets directed to the HTML5.
    2. That we CAN use invisible logos
    These two explanations have solved 80% of the problems mentioned above.

    These are not obvious features and were not explained adequately when purchasing, in phone calls or in emails. I guess at least it was explained and problems solved.

    Additionally, I can add they did also offer a complete refund if I was ultimately not satisfied.

    Still not a 5 star product, but maybe a 3.5 ;)

    "Goog product but a little pricey,"

    September 23, 2010   |   By Net-Software

    Version: 3D Issue Professional 3.4

    Pros

    Works great. Professional looking pdf's.

    Cons

    Costs $399 for standard version.

    Summary

    Addition of google analytics to track each click makes it worth a try.

    "Gets the job done. Good affordable software"

    July 23, 2009   |   By George_Ingle

    Version: 3D Issue Manager 3.1

    Pros

    Has plenty of features, add-ons etc. Simple to use. Best solution I could find to let me turn my newsletter into an electronic one, and I do it all myself.

    Cons

    They have a loat of extras that I don't need or want, I just want to add url links and email links. but the extras come along in the professional model i purchased.

    Summary

    all round great investment. Has already paid for itself (I used to outsource the process). get to cut back on this cost altogether now that I can do it in-house. Lads were a great help in the 3dissue office in helping me get it set up. from purchase the newsletter was online the same day with full bells and whistles working.

    "Saving a packet by doing it myself. Fantastic service!"

    June 09, 2009   |   By Jim_Speers

    Version: 3D Issue Manager 3.1

    Pros

    Bought 3 months ago, 2 days after I found 3D Issue online. Spoke with the sales team wh really helped me in the start up as..not that it was too hard. Software is so easy to use even for a non technical person like myself.

    Cons

    i suppose a criticism if any is that there is no upgrade protection...i think i am only upset at this as I know the product is heading in the right direction.

    Summary

    really worth the investment. definitely get out and buy it especially if you are like me and were out-sourcing. I am saving an absolute fortune...i won't go into figures because I'm embarassed to admit what I was spending per issue...but as i only pay 3d issue once for the software, I made the investment back after my second publication...scary!!!

    "Great investment for digital side"

    May 25, 2009   |   By Old_Brook_Publishing

    Version: 3D Issue Manager 3.1

    Pros

    needed to reduce costs due to the times. given the task of looking for a solution to put my company's 4 publications online. After 2 full months research we went with these guys because we can do the digital process in-house. very simple software.

    Cons

    ??? seemed pricet at the start and nearly put me off, that wasa until i found it was a once-off purchase price and everyone else I was researching were service providers...there were was only one horse in the race after that.

    Summary

    i'm in marketing so not a techie at all, software is so easy to use i handle the whole digital process myself. CEO loved the fact it was a onetime purchase as well. would have no hassle recommending the software. the guys were great in getting us set up and getting our template branded for us, the support team haven't been needed so far..
