"Great way to get basic graphic design done quickly"

What do you like best?

It is much less expensive than Adobe InDesign, and is easier to start navigating quickly within the program. For people needing a easy-to-use program to manipulate simple to somewhat complex projects, it is a great tool!

What do you dislike?

I do not like how it can not export transparent file formats, such as .png. This makes some projects impossible, such as certain logo designs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are needing something cheap and easy to start designing, this is a great option. If you are wanting something for long-term commercial use, this may not be it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am an online course creator, and have thus far designed all of my course materials within iStudio Publisher. Long term, I would like to either learn InDesign or hire out my graphic design work, but for now, this has helped my business get off the ground.

"It covers the basics!"

What do you like best?

It has beautiful templates. The guidelines are easy to adjust and control. As a designer, it’s simple to create beautiful professional layouts if you can’t afford InDesign.

What do you dislike?

There’s a few downfalls. First being it’s overall simple nature. Sure it’s great to do a mock up, but I could never do even a third of the design components that myblsyputs require. Second, for some reason the vector files save funny and you can’t open them on a PC. Third, not compatible with PC.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Spring for Adobe InDesign and Adobe Illustrator. Significantly better investment and overall performance.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It makes doing on the spot mock ups with clients easy. Plus it’s wallet friendly. I can create base designs and concepts to merge them into one big idea via InDesign.

"Professional Publisher for the rest of us!"

What do you like best?

Ease if use and professional formats compatible

What do you dislike?

I wish more format exports as Quarks and others and imports

Recommendations to others considering the product

Before buying make sure your past work can be edited with the app.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used to work on Quark and after working as a freelancer I wasn’t sure if buying Quark for me was going to be a good move so I tried to find something similar but inexpensive and that how I ended up adding to my pro apps this app!

"My goto layout and publishing software"

What do you like best?

Ease of use and user interface. Full-featured and very cost effective

What do you dislike?

I have not found anything to complain about with this software. That said, I don't fancy myself a power user

Recommendations to others considering the product

For my purposes, and as I said previously I'm not a power user, this is all the program you'll ever need for publishing and layout. If you're like a lot of people I know and they work with proprietary files and share a lot, check to make sure you have the compatibility you'll need to accommodate your workflow.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use this for laying out brochure information and proposals for prospective projects. I have established a format and work with that, as you do with such efforts. I like that it is a Mac-based program that works much like all my other graphic programs

"Fantastic and easy to use"

What do you like best?

Without great computer knowledge this program is so easy to use and has been a great asset to our business.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I would like is many more recent files to be available.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Please don't over complicate the program, we don't require the best graphic design program just the most user friendly at a reasonable price.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The program is so versatile, whilst we only use the basic functions it is much more user friendly than other programs we have tried.
