Thanks to jQuery, anyone can knock up a flipbook in 20 minutes. jQuery Flipbook technology can be used for non-savvy website owners that just about know their way around a PDF file.

The development of HTML5 technology has made it possible for developers to build and improve flipbooks. And with jQuery bringing animation and interactions to life, publishers can create stunning flipbooks and have an impact on the way readers engage with content.

Animations and interactive features which allow readers to turn the digital page in a similar way they turn the pages of a print magazine brings the real world into the digital space. The online arena and handheld devices are influencing the way we read. 

Responsive technology for your flipbook

Flipbooks are responsive so that content is compatible with smaller screens on smartphones. Since the emergence of jQuery and HTML5, designers and publishers are finding new ways to create engaging content.

The software is also compatible with pre-existing PDF file formats. Content creators can still use the creative tools they are familiar with – Photoshop or even PowerPoint/Word – and convert the document into a PDF to upload into the flippingbook platform.

jQuery paved the way for developers to quickly create sophisticated user-interfaces that enable publishers to create content that looks like a real book or magazine. By taking advantages of HTML5 flipbooks, digital marketers can create visually stunning content.

The development of jQuery flipbook technology has seen the introduction of UI plugins that are compatible with JavaScript that turn your PDF documents into realistic digital magazines. These plugins are becoming more sophisticated and streamlined all the time, meaning flipbooks are going to look, feel and read better with every year that passes.
