I've purchased the Smart Book extension after a good experience with the previous Flip Book module. Had some small issues with the RTL support which was solved in less then an hour. This guys are FAST. The component is easy to setup and does what it suppose to do, clean and smart. JED should add a 5+ rating option for this guys.

Highly recommended.

I have used Ari products in the past and this new component is excellent. While our team was happy with the Ari Flip Book component, this new component allows our company to show our catalogs on one single page without having to creating the layout as the component allows you to have categories of books that can be displayed with their thumbnails on one page.

The greatest feature for us though is that the extension allows for granular zooming in and out of the high-res books and has a full screen mode. No other Joomla component without using flash does any of this.

Easy to use and only just released, but an excellent extension that the Joomla community needed as this functionality existed in some other CMS, but nothing for Joomla like this.

Great support with Ari when I had presale questions. I then asked about the PDF source request that is now already been added in the latest version of the component, very fast!
