Designrr allows to launch professionally looking ebooks in super short time. They look nice, can be customized easily and then exported into PDF or flipbooks. Perfect for anyone looking to launch ebooks without breaking the bank and without the need to employ a designer. Price is super affordable considering it's a lifetime license!

Pros

Very easy to use. Create your content in Word, then directly import it into Designrr. Then use one of their nice templates and customize if you want. Very easy! No design skills needed and it takes so little time so set up an ebook. Haven't done extremely fancy ebooks but still they look good and neat, totally professional. Also the price is super low and it's for a lifetime license. Can't ask for more really.

Cons

Everything is great! Maybe a bigger choice of templates would be even better, even though there is a good choice even now.

Great service that addresses a need for content creators and designers, with well-done functionality and ease of use.

Pros

I've only been using this service for a short while but am really enjoying it. In my work it's always a challenge to make our content more engaging, and the easy ebook and flipbook creation is really increasing our page reads. Importing and designing content is also easy and intuitive, so I get my work done a lot quicker.

Cons

So far haven't had any problems using it. Having an quick way to have multiple blocks of text become one big text block is on my wish list, but it's not that big of a deal for me.

Trying to import from Word. Keep getting an error that it cannot import Word Docx. But that is the format Designrr is supposed to be able to import. So I switched to Google docs import. I was ecstatic that importing into Designrr via Google Doc actually worked! Although I followed the help docs when I prepared my document for importing. It still imported with a lot of formatting issues. It seems, functions that "should be" simple aren't. I upgraded to the PRO version thinking the issues I had with the basic version would not be an issue with an upgraded account. Unfortunately, for me that has not been the case. I did contact support but to be fair it's only been a couple of hours. The low support score I gave was due to the fact that they lack documentation for troubleshooting. The help center consists of tutorial videos. But there aren't' any articles to help figure out issues before contacting support. There are alternatives on the market and I've decided to give them a try. This may be a great option for many and if that's the case awesome! It's just hasn't been a great option for me. To be fair, I have managed to complete a few pdfs using Designrr but not without some of the same issues I've already mentioned.

Pros

I like the features offered by Designrr. The ability to import from Word, Google Docs is what made me want to upgrade my subscription.

Cons

(Sigh) I really, really , really want to love Designrr but I have yet to have a "bug free" session. Every single time I use it which is less and less these days. I end up trying to use a feature that for whatever reason either just doesn't work or I have to "figure out" how to get something to work the way it does in their tutorials. Perhaps it's growing pains. Who knows.

Designrr has changed my way of doing things online by enabling me to create content fast and publish it. This software is underpriced and it over delivers. All software creators need to take a page from [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] book and learn how to provide this kind of customer support and product.

Pros

I have said it many times and I will say it again. This is the best software that I have ever bought. I have been a subscriber since the beginning in2015/16 and this software only gets better with time. I am just amazed at the upgrades that [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] and the crew have done to Designrr over the years. This is the software that changed the world. I even wrote a blog about Designrr. [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN]
I wrote that from my own experience and stand behind it 100%

Cons

No problems. I love everything about Designrr.
Anyone that has problems is provided free training by the Designrr.

I can not live without this software. I publish a lot of lead magnets and books and this cuts my work down to hours instead of days or weeks. Their customer service team is awesome too and they are very responsive.

Pros

It has a brand new Ai tool that can research a topic, create an outline for a book and then write the book for you. Even better, the table of contents that it creates can be edited. After it does all of this, you choose the template and it automatically formats the book for you.

Cons

There is a slight learning curve when you are trying to tweak elements and although I love that it experts in pdf, epub, flipbook and other formats, I would love it if they included an export to word.

As with everything learn a little about the software and how it works. Learn what it supposed to do and let it do it. When I realised this I have made it do wonderful things.

Pros

I like everything about this. There are many tutorials in the help section. You can join the Facebook group. If you are having problems someone else has had they direct to where you can find answers. If you still have questions or have unique problem support is there to help, Just Ask.
Learn how the software works and you will have a wonderful experience.

Cons

When I started I thought there were to many templates. I started to learn how they worked and figured which I liked it opened a world of options. There should be a "What this can do for you" as an introduction for those that are starting out. Maybe a "What this won't do" somewhere.

Providing pricing catalogs with this is quite nice. E-books, and white papers, such a blast.

Pros

This is a no brainer after you get to taste the impact of that flipbook in your customers. The ease of implementation on a website, just remarkable.

They gave a lot of thought on the editor design and luckily, in case they failed about thinking of some solution, you still have access to the html editor which it will most likely accept any piece of problem solver there.

Pretty accessible, even in these times.

Cons

Although very effective, the editor could improved a lil bit more. Sometimes I find myself struggling why some changes are not taking in place, specially when working with the tables.

You could also allow having more than 2 background colors for each column of the table. Let's say you want to make a pricing list formatted as a column matrix and you are offering different plans to your customers. It would be nice to being able of selecting a color per each column.

The flipbook is amazing, but I don't see to find myself quite pleased with the size of the book when rendered. It does have a zoom button, yet I would prefer the flipbook to occupy the whole screen (width and height as well) in that way it would really give a feeling that you are reading a book. Like, regardless of the paper size, the flipbook is rendered in such a way that the page takes the whole screen.

Great E-book software but don't like paying monthly for the pleasure and don't like the way the affiliate system works.

Pros

I thought the lifetime license for creating E-Books was fantastic value at $27 and makes creating E-books very simple and easy.

Cons

I disliked that the lifetime license only allows you to create Free Ebooks to giveaway and you needed to upgrade to a monthly or annual payment to sell them, I also thought some of the pricing for the video transition was a tad expensive at $300 per month considering it is being done by software. I bought an AI software that costs me $29 per month and it allows me to create as many transcriptions from videos as I want for up to 30-minute videos.

The overall experience is the real issue. I am disappointed. I wanted it to work. But my first and only designrr ebook will be the last.

I expect things to go wrong but the real color shows when things go wrong.

If all works well go for it. But be warned. It's not going to be pleasant when things go wrong.

Pros

The ebook looks great. It's nice to import from Google docs.

Cons

Bugs, bugs, and more bugs. I imported from Google docs. Support said I copied bad code and that's why my book breaks.
Fonts change, paragraphs break in many short sentences.

Support said I must clear cache. Or get training. Formating stuff needs training but I have written very many blogs and articles.

I then went to support. They stop supporting. I went to their Facebook group but [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] the boss deleted my post. And said he will not talk to me any longer. I was trying to get support from him.

Fabulous ... I was struggling watching videos of best ways to produce my books but once I found designrr I was at least up and running ... now to afford the pro-bundle

Pros

designrr is an easy to use slick piece of software. I have written a few "how to" and "children's" books, book's that I intent to sell on line and convert to other mediums such as audio books training courses and video's. I am at the very start of this journey and I didn't really know where to start. Thank goodness for designrr. I tentatively bought it at an extremely low price hoping that it would help me in the production process. IT DOES THAT AND FAR MORE... it is very easy to use with a very good help section and plenty of back up from the company. As with everything you have to familiarise yourself with the interface but you will soon be making beautiful and pleasing articles ...

Cons

I think that a little more explanations could be included for picture use and using templates and a guide on how to create your own ( from scratch) cover would be good... It is all there but when learning to use this software it is trial and error to find it

Frustrating at first and then switching to absolute delight and desire to keep on using it.

Pros

What works for me is that I can prepare my document in WORD and then upload it to Designrr to give it a very polished and professional look.

Cons

I struggled at first with doing basic things such as moving paragraphs up and down a page or I ended up with a double set of Table of Contents. I got very frustrated as I'm not a techie and mature in years. Customer Service helped me a lot and when they suggested a 30 minute session with one of the trainers, I jumped at the chance. That set me on the road and a few simple tweaks helped to fine tune my e-book. The secret - get it right in WORD first.

Overall I do believe it is a phenomenal program or platform that I can use for my other books that has been sitting because I didn't like the experience of a self publishing company. With designrr I can eliminate that process for good.

Pros

I like the fact that I can write a book and turn it into an ebook and flipbook without a cost of a publisher. I can also sell the download. Make a mini book from the first few chapters to promote the full novel.

I had written a book a few years ago and self published it with a company. Yet I don't receive much on the royalties from it. Plus they are selling it at a price that I believe it too high. With designrr I can sell it at a more reasonable price.

Cons

There are a few draw backs in the design faze. It separates the text into different elements when I imported my raw data. When I tried to make changes I have to rewrite certain sections to get it where I want it.

I like the ease of getting started and having a product in a very short time. But what is even better is that you have a super large variety of options and if you can put in a little more time you can produce extraordinary content even if you are not a designer at heart.
