Ratings and Reviews
Their templates could be 1000% better. If you are writing a book, they could have 20 templates for books that all you needed to do was add text. It is obvious the people doing this don’t read hard cover books, and there isn’t enough thought that goes into them. The fonts are horrendous, childlike, and you would never use them in a book. Maybe for your cupcake party, but not for a crime/myster/thriller, or dystopian fiction, or narrative literary fiction. They have no clue what genre is, and their templates prove it. To go into them and change all the things they’ve set up is a nightmare. And still when you do, they have hidden formatting that just hangs around and you never quite get rid of it. This goes for books, magazines, flyers and others. For business cards, they are great, sort of. For other things they are functional. Come on guys, don’t you know about converting files to Vellum, Kindle, Mobi, and the others? Make your templates compatible so the conversion is easy and looks good.
Clunky start -but worth the effort!
I downloaded this Publish Lab for Pages, because I’m able to do a tremendous amount of creative design hacking through things in pages and importing .psd’s etc. Still I needed to create a special souvenir bulletin for my church in a small amount of time. I didn’t have the time to start from scratch so I downloaded this with 2 days to work on the project. The download process made me a little anxious. It’s a heavy load and takes time, sometimes it seemed it aborted, but it didn’t. In the end (after emailing the developers twice) It was fully downloaded and once I got into it - NIRVANA! I chose the template for my bulletin, which I chose to make look like a magazine… THEN I opened other ‘lab’ templates and borrowed elements I liked to truly customize my look. LOVE love what they’re doing and I hope you’re encouraged to keep creating MORE!
Appstore approach a big mistake
I would normally rate this set 5 stars for the quality of the layouts. Jumsoft has always been great at providing layouts that are well above average in their design quality and thus quite useful even for sophisticated designers. Sometimes when you're on a tight timeline or budget, these can serve as a great starting point for a design.
Unfortunately, having it as an app instead of as a traditional Pages template gallery is a huge setback, making it cumbersome to use. Instead of just launching Pages and having this appear in the template gallery, you now have to launch a separate MacApp just for the set (including having to figure out where the App is), look through it for the template you want, then open it as a template in Pages. Real pain, and creates an unnecessary gap between the traditional template set and this one for those template designs that already existed before in a different format. For that reason, I dropped two stars off the rating.
But as I said, the quality of the layouts is exceptionally high, so it doesn't deserve a single star rating at all.
Given the hassle of accessing these templates, I think Jumsoft is doing itself a disservice with this release, because it will make me hesitate in the future before buying other Jumsoft products. I own quite a few of their items and have liked them a lot. But now I'll be resistant to adding more and that's a shame.
