Just to be clear from the beginning, I’m talking about the navigation effect – how the page turns on digital books and magazines (not about FlipSnack and SlideSnack, both great Snacktools products).
The flip effect is great because it makes the magazine or book look and feel like a real printed one and you can add to that a page flip sound to make it seem even more real. From our users perspective, flip is the winner effect, especially for desktops and laptops.
People consume media today on different devices: desktops, tablets and smartphones. Ebooks and magazines that have a slide effect on mobile devices (tablets and smartphones) provide a better user experience, so when you publish a magazine, you should acknowledge the range of devices people are using.
The good news is that you can have the best of the both worlds! With FlipSnack you will use the flip effect on desktops and then choose your desired effect for mobiles (in landscape mode): flip or slide. We recommend using the slide effect for mobile devices.
Do you prefer the flip effect or the slide?
