FlipSnack is an amazing way to put all the
information you’re trying to say in a creative, fun way! Once you click on “Make a Flipbook,” you have to add a .pdf file. After that, it converts it to a flipping book! It’s super easy. According to www.flipsnack.com/:
“FlipSnack is an online flipping book software that allows you to
convert PDF documents into Flash page flip digital publications. It's the ideal solution for those who wish to embed a book, magazine, catalog, newspaper, portfolio or any other kind of document into a website or blog. Once created, you can embed your flipping book collection, download them or share them on social networking websites such as Facebook. P.S. With FlipSnack you can upload several documents at once, allowing you to embed not only one, but multiple page flip publications in the same Flash widget.”
Finances: FlipSnack is free, and you have access the most of its features. That said, 10 points can be paid to get the watermark off of your flipping book. You can also buy the VIP membership. For the most part, there won’t be a disadvantage to not paying to use FlipSnack.
Technology: One piece of technology you have to have in order to use FlipSnack is obviously a computer. Without it, you cannot use this program. You also have to be able to download .pdf files to your computer. This is what makes up your flipping book.
Reception: Most people love using FlipSnacks! Teachers think it’s really great, because they can use it to easily teach. People in business also find it really helpful. It’s a great way to showcase your information or projects.
“I am always looking for new ways to publish student work on teacher
websites and on my blog. I was excited to learn about Flipsnack from one of my favorite blogs, http://ilearntechnology.com/. Flipsnack is a new application that will make an online flipping book (with turning pages) from your student work in minutes! Just create a .PDF document from your student work and upload it. Flipsnack creates an embeddable code that you can then place in your website or blog or share online via Facebook or Twitter.” – real review from Koren Ogen
