Great Combo of Features + Ease of Use

Very glad I bought Swift Publisher; it is well worth the price. This app makes it incredibly easy to create marketing materials like brochures, newsletters, etc. I pulled together a tri-fold brochure in no time, completely from scratch. The hard part is writing the content (a blank page is a scary thing), but the examples provided in Swift Publisher’s template gallery make even that task less daunting. I picked out a template, then used the pre-defined text areas to fill in the content. The text areas are small, requiring only a few sentences (but there are options for longer items, too). Coming up with a few brief, to-the-point phrases is a lot easier for me than writing long paragraphs. The image tools are decent, though not enough to completely rework one of your photos. If you need serious cropping/cleaning or other mods to your images you may still want to pre-tweak them using something else. This is great software that can probably do just about anything you need for printed marketing products. Definitely recommend; a real bargain.

Much Easier that MS Publisher

I’ve never had much experience with desktop publishers, but I understand that they’re supposed to be easier and better than a word processor when page formatting is a top priority. Our church office PC has MS Publisher, and I’ve been able to fumble my way through it (you really need to take a class for it, it’s got so many functions). Well, I had to get a funeral bulletin ready in a short amount of time, so I tried Swift Publisher. So intuitive (it behaves just like an Apple-produced app) and straightforward! And the automatic booklet print function really takes the stress our of making sure you have your pages in the right order. This has really helped me be more productive with church publications. It would be nice if Swift documents could be imported into MS Publisher and vice-versa, but I understand such compatibility isn’t always possible. But thanks for such a powerful and easy-to-use desktop publisher that even novices can master in no time. Well done!

Too much troubles with using

The app is nice, the idea is great! But! A huge number of the problems in app work!!!! More than half a year I have expected from developers of correction of the current bugs, but nothing chanched... Everything stays the same. The application is very very slow, and I have a top iMac. After the application is deployed to the full screen, when resized, most of the features of the application disappear. Very often crashes without saving. Hangs, freezing... and much more… For today, this app is not worth $20. Dear developers, take action and fix the application. At least it should not freezing, and after adding 5 layers on the picture, it is impossible to work!!!

Приложение приятное, задумка отличная! Но! Проблем в работе немерено!!!! Более полугода ждал от разработчиков исправления текущих багов, но нет.. Все остается прежним. Приложение очень очень сильно тормозит, а у меня топовый iMac. После развертывания приложения на полный экран, при изменении размера, пропадает большинство функций приложения. Очень часто вылетает, без сохранения. Зависает… И многое многое другое… На сегодняшний день эта программа не стоит $20. Уважаемые разработчики, примите меры и исправьте приложение. Как минимум оно не должно тормозить, а после добавления 5 слоя на картинку, работать невозможно!!!
