Increase number of images that can be added.
Great program, however, it would be extremely useful if the number of images that can be added be increased. Currently the limit is 250 images.

We'll look into the option of doing this for the next major version of the app.
Fix The Slide Chicklets
You are suppose to be able to swipe to bring up a row of slides that allows you to quickly navigate to a particular image. This has largely stopped working. Sometimes swiping closes the app, other times it returns you to the hone screen, and often nothing happens. I suspect the problem is due to Apple’s increased use of swiping in the base interface. There seems to be a conflict. I would suggest finding a new motion or tap to invoke this functionality.

I've just re-tested this to make absolutely certain (as I tested before release) and I cannot replicate this problem and it has not been reported by anybody else. Can you post a support ticket at support dot rocketgardenlabs.com so we can look into this a what may be specific to your situation? A single vertical swipe should work as normal. In addition there is also a button on the sidebar (three squares) which will also display and hide the thumbnails (chiclets)
Difficult setup. Too many technical barriers to get up and running. I gave up.
I spent a good bit of time trying to get this going. I gave it more time than I should have and even watched the tutorial videos hoping to get passed the technical barriers. There are certain things, like adding a logo, that appear to be easy but just never worked for me. I regret the time I put into the app but I since I spent the money I figure I better try.
Eventually I just gave up.

I'm very sorry to hear this. We'll always try to help quickly if we receive a support message when people hit a problem, but I understand if you decided not to take up the option of our direct assistance. Thousands of people use the app every day but we recognise that the app doesn't mesh with some workflows. Our new version of the app Foliobook 4 has made it easier to add and modify the Logo image and the drag and drop import of files makes it intuitive to add still and video content from a variety of sources and continues to be improved in terms of intuitive usability.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
