How long have you been using Triobo?

I have been using Triobo for several years, practically since the first time it had emerged – and it immediately caught my attention. Right away I felt that this was it – a new publishing direction towards tablets and smartphones (and now also to the web). 

 What do you think are pros of Triobo?

The greatest advantage I see that it is very easy to use. As a graphic designer and desk top publisher I was able to work with it immediately, after opening the editor I could unleash my creativity. The basic idea is simple – I draw frames on page and insert texts, images, videos, audio files, or even your own HTML code, if I wanted to program anything in my publication. In this universality I see the greatest advantage – it is quite simple to do anything I want. Triobo also offers alternatives to animate embedded objects, multistate objects that may be switched with buttons or automatically, photo galleries … I can upload any fonts to Triobo Editor, so I am not restricted in any way. Very trivial is also definition of colors and storing them in color palettes with later application to selected text / object. I can also define styles of paragraph and characters, which is certainly valued by magazine designers.  In summary, quite simply I create whatever comes to my mind and publish it with a single click on appropriate button. Well, now I also realize that it is possible to preview a fully functional publication any time I want, where everything is clickable and animated as in the final publication.

What do you think are cons of Triobo?

It is hard to say what may be called disadvantage, it depends on your point of view. I can say that Triobo does not offer to work with vectors (bézier curves). It is Triobo Editor in which you must upload all sources, I cannot draw anything there or edit audio / video. The question is whether it is good or bad. I could welcome béziers in case the work with them would be on reasonable level, including the combination of shapes. But I’m not missing this much and would take it as a bonus. I recognize Triobo as “another” graphic application that I keep running while working. When I create anything, I have running at least Photoshop and Illustrator, sometimes even InDesign and switch between them when I need. 

Do you have something to add?

What should I add in conclusion,  perhaps what strikes me immediately is the encouragement, people should not be afraid to start working with Triobo, because there is really nothing to be afraid of. In my life I’ve learned to work with lots of different systems and Triobo falls among the simplest ones, at least from the perspective of graphic designer / desk top publisher, who has routinized principles that are used in Triobo as well as in Adobe.

How long have you been using Triobo?

We have began publishing the he first magazine of our portfolio in 2013.

What do you think are pros of Triobo?

Multiplatformity of the Reader app as well as universal use from production aspect. Ability to prepare high-quality interactive output for different types and sizes of mobile devices. Extremely rapid learning curve, experienced designer can prepare the first publication within few days from registration to Triobo Editor. May use different channels for payment, advanced statistics are already integrated.

What do you think are cons of Triobo?

The only risk lies in noticeable changes on the side of various operating systems where the reader app is running. The development is so fast that it sometimes confuses the user. We need just simple work with finished issues and only the “clean export” to sales channels.

Do you have something to add?

Triobo wins big over the similar systems for production of multimedia publications especially because of much greater production efficiency. This applies not only to production time (including special animation effects), but also the option to inspect your work on real device before the actual publishing.

How long have you been using Triobo?

 I have been using Triobo on several projects since last year.

What do you think are pros of Triobo?

There is no need to install anything, unlike most software it does not take up any of your disk space. The application is not limited to hardware performance so the quality of internet connection plays important role. Your work is done online, so the result of your work can be observed real time through clients web browser. The application is universal across all platforms and works on most available modern web browsers. The use of all work tools in Triobo is absolutely free. The client pays only after he decides to publish his content. All interactive objects are made by automat that that is using programming languages, therefore everything works well even on devices that do not support flash.

What do you think are cons of Triobo?

In case of bad internet connection your work is too slow. There is no option to export your data to a disk without using Triobo Editor for reading. Only average appearance of tool panel and the entire environment of Triobo Editor in comparison with other software that have more sophisticated UI/UX design.

Do you have something to add?

Triobo is amazing tool in digital publishing world, where graphic designer without any knowledge of HTML and JAVA may concentrate on work without knowing these programming languages. The limitation of your work is only your imagination and not possibilities that are offered by Triobo.
