Foliobook 4, the preferred app for creative agencies to show off their artists best work on the iPad.
Foliobook 4 retains the core features of Foliobook while providing a major makeover in ease of use and appearance. It's never been easier to organise your work on the fly retaining your personal branding and to present it to your potential customers on the finest hardware devices available to humanity.
With this major new version the foundations of the app have been largely rewritten and we trust that with a new subscription business model our customers will be able to continue to experience the best features of the app for years to come as the app moves to this new sustainable business model.
Existing users of Foliobook can use the free trial period to copy an existing Foliobook portfolio into the new app to future proof their work after the existing app is retired and use it as a read-only work if they do not want to subscribe and support our future development.
Foliobook 4 incorporates the Drag and Drop capabilities of iPadOS as well as adding the ability to consume images exported from other applications via file sharing such as Adobe Lightroom™ and many more.
An easy automated migration procedure is available for existing users of Foliobook to transfer their existing portfolios to the new app.
Images of PNG, JPG, TIFF, GIF and BMP types can be directly dragged or shared into the app, making it fast and simple to build up a portfolio wherever you choose to store your starting images. An entire album from the Photos app can be shared into a Foliobook gallery in a single step. Dropbox™, Box™, iCloud Drive, Photos, Microsoft One Drive™, pCloud™ can be used to Drag and Drop images and other apps such as Amazon Drive™ and Transmit™ can share images from the sidebar into Foliobook 4. (Facilities vary depending on the cloud vendor).
These improvements make Foliobook 4 the cleanest minimal way for a photographer or artist to showcase their work and provides all the images in an offline mode so that a portfolio can be shown whether an internet connection is available or not.
Foliobook 4 is the clean and minimal ipad portfolio app for photographers, agents, designers, models, architects, and anyone who wants a simple and beautiful way to present a portfolio of photos and visual artwork. Art galleries, museums and photographic agents and salesforces use Foliobook because of the ability to share a portfolio with multiple iPads.
Foliobook 4 features a customisable home portfolio page that works in portrait or landscape orientation and provides a wealth of customisation options, its your virtual portfolio binder capable of putting a professional touch on the presentation of your images. This allows you to create and modify your branding on the fly.
Your clients will marvel at the cool way they can interact with the portfolio of images. Dissolve and wipe transitions provide alternative slideshow transitions for your portfolio.
You can use Airplay to show the portfolio through an Apple TV, or HDMI. You can see your portfolio, backed by music on a widescreen TV.
Video presentation is included in the new version of Foliobook 4 and is enhanced, more stable and ready for future enhancement.
This is a fix release for a couple of bugs in importing content
- Fixed a problem when using sharing between apps (Files app into Foliobook) with larger videos
- Fixed a problem with drag and drop from the Photos app into Foliobook
Ratings and Reviews
So many bugs for $20 a year
So for the last 20 minutes I’ve been trying to enter titles and descriptions along with my photos but of course that’s not working and they’re not sticking have to redo them every time and they’re just not sticking.
Also it’s a bad thing where you have placeholder texted you have to actually delete individually before you actually type some thing and then also it would be nice if the gallery as you can move around and have more galleries on the front page just by moving them around but instead you only get one line and you can’t actually move them around to customize the position of the galleries and where those are even though there just text links.
For a $20 a year app I really expected much more options and fluidness and the ability to show text and title and have it look very nice. Unfortunately I don’t see that in fact some of the things like you have to delete all the no copyright information if you don’t wanna show that in a portfolio sometimes it’s hard to show that in a portfolio also I’m not sure about the syncing, backup or security or anything like that of this app. There’s no information on any of that, so maybe I’m syncing or backing up to an unsecured location.
Developer Response ,
I'm sorry you've had problems with the metadata editing, it was originally added as a way to correct metadata imported from images rather than as a data entry capability. I'm working on updates that will improve this. As for the other questions, please contact me via our support website or Facebook group or twitter account @Foliobook and I can help you with some of the questions you have. You can move gallery buttons far more flexibly by using the other menu types.
Another subscription model...
For me, I don’t need any new features. I need the app to work as it did in Foliobook 3. And I need bug fixes / compatibility updates to ensure it works with future iOS releases.
I am a working international news photographer and I don’t like being tied down by subscriptions. I would have gladly paid $75 - $100 for Foliobook 4.
In app purchase
Not too sure if I understand the differences between all the 4 options in the “in app purchases” section. I installed the app and it shows me a pro version to subscribe to and the price shown is a $2 something per month (charges annually) which is ok, but I don’t get what are the other options as listed in the “in app purchase”
Any ideas? 3 star for now without using the app, will change it when I can figure out my answer...
Developer Response ,
There is really only one subscription level, 'pro' and 'pro' with a discount for those who already have Foliobook 3 installed as a loyalty benefit. This level will enable all main features of the app.
The other subscription levels are due to be removed from sale and are meant for enterprise users or sponsors of the app. The only benefit of those levels is an enterprise branding feature.
