This gives users the advantage of accessing information in their choice of language.
Suitable for the present information age
In this present information age, speed, accuracy and global connectivity have become the most required criteria for people. Hence, we can confidently say that flipbooks, more than the conventional PDF documents, can suit the requirements of baby boomers.
Unlike PDFs, flipbooks can allow addition of email addresses and website links to the pages and can be used for sharing information on different social media sites such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and others.
Possibility of customization as per requirements
As per requirements, flipbooks can be also customized for adding, changing or modifying themes, templates, background colors and navigation buttons. For example, flash themes can be applied to a PowerPoint presentation to make it more attractive.
