Bug fixes and performance improvements
Ratings and Reviews
Good design, still some bugs/missing features
I appreciate some of the new versions that have reduced crashing and other bugs, but still experiencing strange occurrences, like imported things showing up twice, buggy when moving items around.
The biggest drawback, though, is presenting videos. If for some reason you have to stop the video mid presentation, you have to start from the beginning again — no Pause, no FF or Rewind. It can make for some awkward presentations Dan I’d love to see at least minimal video playback control.
Keep working it at — it’s they still the best presentation format for the iPad out there!
Great for Architects
I have been using this for about 4 years. It is the most elegant, straightforward means of presenting my work. I have a separate column for each project, starts with a self made title sheet, on to photos of the completed work, then PDF’s of floor plans. Each project is its own very complete presentation. Then I have a separate portfolio of magazine publications, if an interview with a potential client warrants it. Had a couple of glitches transitioning into iOS 11, but all worked out, and smooth again.
I love this app...but
Minimal Folio has been a godsend when it comes to showing my video work to clients.
My wife is an agent and uses it as well.
A couple of issues:
Organizing video is a bit of a pain as there are no titles on the videos.
Not clear if you can link more than one iPad to a Minimal folio in Dropbox??? Would be great for an agent with multiple iPads for presentation.
No idea if anyone is continuing to refine the app? Would be nice to see some fine tuning.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
