Toolwiz FlipBook 1.5
Easily turn any text file into a stand-alone 3D ebook

Toolwiz FlipBook is an interesting tool which will quickly turn any text file into a 3D ebook.

In its most basic form, the program is very simple to use. At a minimum, all you have to is point it at your TXT file, click "Read Now", and in a few seconds Toolwiz FlipBook will convert your "file.txt" into a "file.exe" executable.

Launch this EXE file on any Windows PC and you'll see the original text displayed in a 3D book. You can then navigate through the book using the keyboard or mouse (just double-click to watch the page flip over). And when you've finished, just press Esc and the book will close.

If this doesn't quite work for you, then the book can be customised in various ways. You're able to set the book's title and author, for instance, as well as setting its height and width. There's an option to set the book's font. And it's possible to embed an "advertisement", perhaps a link to your website.

This all works well enough, too, but there are problems, mainly caused by the total absence of any documentation.

The Builder has an option to "Find the chapter automatically", for instance, but what does that do? We've no idea.

Hold the left mouse button down on the book's page and you can scribble on it, but does this serve any useful purpose? We've not sure.

And the books themselves have a menu option called "Comment Mode", which also sounds worth knowing about. Sadly, you won't find any details on it here.

Still, even now Toolwiz FlipBook does provide an easy way to turn text files into ebooks, so if that sounds appealing then it's definitely worth a look. Hopefully some documentation will arrive in a future update to help us get even more from the program.

Verdict:

Toolwiz FlipBook is an easy-to-use tool for turning text files into ebooks. The program's presentation is a little sloppy right now, though, and it desperately needs some documentation.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
