Create Booklet 2 – More Powerful, Yet Easier

TheKeptPromise today is proud to announce Create Booklet 2 (v2.0.1), their new Mac application. Create Booklet 2 has some big shoes to fill following its 5-star predecessor “Create Booklet.” Create Booklet 2 goes beyond what the pro market offered so far, while putting even more emphasis on user-friendliness. The idea behind this software solution is simple: Bringing professional booklet printing to everybody’s homes, even grandma’s and grandpa’s.

 

Create Booklet 2 - More Powerful, Yet Easier

 

“We are very pleased to provide our clients with a tool which fulfills all the needs concerning booklet creation and printing and is yet very simple to use,” said Christoph Vogelbusch, CEO of TheKeptPromise. “We have extremely loyal customers, as Create Booklet goes far beyond what competitors offer. Yet we still had feature-requests and customers being overwhelmed with the complex topic of booklet creation. Create Booklet 2 is the answer to all those emails, it satisfies your every booklet need.”

 

To satisfy the pro users, Create Booklet 2 makes use of PDF boxes, allowing custom impositions and much much more. The Team is proud to open Booklet printing to everybody with these 3 key features:

 

1. Onboarding:
Creating the booklet comes with a few surprises: Pages should be a multiple of 4, the page size should be half of the paper you use and best of all you can write your favorite booklet in any app you love. Create Booklet 2’s onboarding gets customers up to speed before they run into any surprises. It gives all the information they need to feel comfortable and gives them their first booklet: The help of Create Booklet 2 itself as a booklet. During this onboarding, the app is also testing the printer to make sure that it’s smooth sailing from here on out and even the first booklet is instantly printed perfectly.

 

2. Presets:
On the quest of making the app as user-friendly as possible, TheKeptPromise introduced presets to Create Booklet 2. It makes even complicated booklets as easy as 1-2-3

1 Load PDf
2 Select a preset
3 Print

 

“Select a preset by us or create your own. We are sure presets will be loved by all: beginners and pros.” said CEO Christoph Vogelbusch. “Since presets make everything easy, Create Booklet 2 even includes a preset for a real book. Print, glue – done!”

 

3. Automatic warning system:
Create Booklet 2 has an automatic warning system. When you allow this many settings, things can go wrong. As soon as the program senses that something could be off with printing the booklet, it draws the user’s attention to the problem – before printing of course. Furthermore, Create Booklet 2 is not just drawing the user’s attention to the problem but also suggests ways of solving the problem.

 

The user-friendly approach is well received by the customers:
