Create and Publish Professional-Looking Manuals (Web + PDF) Easily with Manula

Create and Publish Professional-Looking Manuals (Web + PDF) Easily with Manula | Web Publishing Tools | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



Manula is a web-based service which allows you to create professional-looking manuals and PDF guides with maximum ease and simplicity.


Manula provides an online editor, that integrates all of the basic functionalities you may want to have during the preparation of an instructions manual including:

  • text formatting, 
  • images, 
  • video, 
  • versioning
  • language versions


In addition, you can share and re-use individual topics / chapters across multiple manuals, and decide whether a manual is available publicly or not. Manula is also a collaborative tool allowing for multiple editors.


The final version of your manual can be instantly published to the web, with your own logo and organization name, or saved to a standard PDF file for distribution. Web version is perfectly viewable across devices and screens of all sizes and integrates a full search engine.


My comment: Manula delivers what it promises. Reliable and easy editing and maintenance of multimedia manuals that need to be published to the web or via PDF and that can be seen across any device. If I had to mention a better alternative for non-tech users, that had no download, and that was as easy to learn or adopt, I would be in difficulty in suggesting one. 


Free version available.

Create Pro-Looking Web Magazines from Scratch or from Any PDF with Simplebooklet

Create Pro-Looking Web Magazines from Scratch or from Any PDF with Simplebooklet | Web Publishing Tools | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



Simplebooklet is a free web-based app which allows you to convert your existing PDFs into a flippable browser-based format, or to create brand new ones from scratch by leveraging a nice set of professional ready-made templates.


Simplebooklet makes it easy to integrate text, images, video clips, audio tracks, geometric shapes, clipart and a number of call-to-action modules for selling, subscribing, and other lead generation actions.


The final publication looks like a web magazine with flippable pages and with useful buttons to see all pages thumbnails, to share on social media or to download bonus files.

Your finalized multimedia booklet can be published on Simplebooklet, shared on social media and embedded on any site.


A PRO version costing $36/year allows for creating up to 50 booklets, for uploading PDFs as large as 100MB and for integrating downloadable files as well as call-to-action modules such as email me, buy this or subscription forms.


My comment: Quite useful to convert PDFs into flipboard style web-magazines which are and will increasingly be the new of reading on the web. Excellent integrated-design features make it possible also to create flippable multimedia booklets from scratch that will have a professional-look no matter your level of design expertise. Worth trying. Still in beta and buggy.
