Even though it's still a work in progress I'd say that this plugin is perfect for my needs. Works even better than a paid module that I tried to use earlier. I even have other plugins working within this one with no problem at all! Support from the forum admin is swift and prompt, solved both my queries within a day of posting.

This is the extension for a nice and smooth Magazine-effect. Without third parties and Flash(!).

I had some troubles to make it work the way I wanted, but I think that's because of my experience level :-). With the very good support I made it.

Excellent plugin to make flipping pages, works on all devices I have tested so far also iPhone and iPad.

I use the plugin for a "Drink Menu" of a catering service, looks fantastic, works fantastic and gives you the feeling of a real drink list while flicking through the pages.

The support is very good and fast responding. Well done, guys!

I've been looking for something like this for ages. I have a number of long articles and had been looking for a way to split them up into pages rather than having to scroll through them.
This plugin does everything I want and the page turning feature is an added bonus.
Thank you for this wonderful piece of work.
