It’s OK but needs work

I’ve been using this extension for a couple of months and have some pro and con observations. On the positve side, Mimeo offers more customization than the old built-in Apple process. And, published books seem to be equal to what had been available through Apple. On the negative, and this is a big negative, you can suddenly lose the ability to open existing projects. This has happened to me twice. Each time has been the same - I’ve clicked ‘open’ and, instead of the project opening, I’ve received an error message. Repeated clicks lead to the same error message. The first time I notified Mimeo and entered into a two-day email exchange - they were as baffled as I was. The second time I decided to write this review. I think the take away is this - when using the Mimeo extension, don’t work on projects over an extended period of time. I like to add pictures over time, review and revise, and eventually print a book. I think its safer to build a book at once … building one slowly leaves you at the extension’s mercy. Eventually, the platform’s instability will kill your project and you’ve got to start over.

Its a shame Apple is discontinuing its service. I have yet to find an extension as reliable and intuitive. Mimeo, I think, comes closest. But they still have a way to go.

Keep Updating

I like everyone else was not happy to have to change to something new and different to make my photo books. I think the best thing for me so far, is the developers from mimeo seem to be listening to us the users and, are working to make this everything we have been used to. I have had several exchanges with the customer support and emails. There have been many updates recently but we still need to improve the product. The biggest thing for me is the inability to save my project as a PDF when complete. This to me is the biggest no brainer and as of now still unable to. I find the mistakes I made or the things I need to change just jump out at me when I think I am done when I am able to review my project in that form. I hope this is high on the priority of updates to come. Also the fact we can’t move one page at a time to reorganize the book. This to me is a problem as often times you just want to rearrage a single page. Also please add the ability to add page numbers. Overall my experience is ok but it just needs to go a little farther. I’m glad they are listening to us the users, and look forward to more improvements. Thank you to the developers for listening to us.

Too many crashes

I was hopeful this would work well as it is so much easier to load straight from Photos. I do several photo books a year and have uses various companies so i am familiar with what i need and what is available elsewhere. It was doing OK until the last update (3.0.1). Now it will not load many pages with full page photos and I am losing a project I have spent 20+ hours on already. Other things that need improvements 1. Thumbnails from photos to chose from need to be larger. 2. You need to be able to hide the photos already used in a project so you are not forced to scroll through the hundreds to find the one you want. 3. There should be a way to remove a photo from a project entirely if you decide it will not be used at all. 4. You shoulld be able to save it in a format you can easily spell/grammer check yourself. 5. There needs to be a more informative help/instruction section 6. When support is contacted they need to read the entire question/problem before they give a solution to which you have already explained you have attempted to implement and it did not work.
