Welcome once again to our Easter Day App Giveaway section of theappwhisperer and Happy Easter to all our readers.  We value you all so much we want to share our love of apps with you. That’s why we have created this section as each day we will be giving away free apps.

Today we have Foliobook apps to giveaway, each currently worth $9.99/£5.99 but from Tuesday, $12.99/£9.99. Foliobook is the clean and minimal ipad portfolio app for photographers, agents, designers, models, architects, and anyone who wants a simple and beautiful way to present photos and visual artwork.

Foliobook features a customisable home page that works in portrait or landscape orientation and provides a wealth of customisation options, its your virtual ‘bookbinder’ capable of putting a professional touch on the presentation of your images. This allows you to create and modify your branding on the fly.

Your home page can have a background image, or a movie as wallpaper and allows overlaid logo graphics and text to create an iPad portfolio that looks as rich and personalised as a web site.

Managing your pictures is a snap, unlike with most other portfolio apps you can go ahead and add up to 200 pictures in a single go, saving loads of time.

Would you like to try this app for free?

Organise Your Work

When Foliobook’s read-only lock is off you can use gestures to easily add, remove and manage your image, organise them into galleries or create and modify your branding. Foliobook’s image management allows you to add your pictures rapidly. Foliobook allows you to load many images with a single operation, now you can load your iPad pictures quickly with no more ‘pecking’ at each image and waiting. Or load a whole folder in a go (currently limited to 25 images at a single time).

Show Your Work

Once you’ve added pictures, use Foliobook’s custom transition engine to show your work off gracefully. Foliobook has a dissolve transition suitable for very large images, a wipe transition for normal images and a unique ‘Foliobook’ transition which emulates moving images in a portfolio box. You can adjust the timing of transitions and the fit of images so that even if your pictures are not sized precisely for the iPad they are automatically fitted into the view. Use pinch gestures to zoom into the detail in a large image, slide your finger to find details and just tap to return to the slideshow.

A swipe down reveals an elegant thumbnail view which you can use to speedily navigate to a particular image. Everything is achieved with graceful gestures and help on which gestures to use is just a double tap away on the context sensitve help. And when you are done with viewing a gallery of images, just pinch to leave the gallery.

Be Productive

Foliobook has great usability and support. Context sensitive help means that you are never more than a couple of taps away from a handy guide to the gestures used in part of an app. The rich use of gestures means that navigating around the app is fluid and like the best apps on the iPad.
