iStudio Publisher received a couple of very complimentary reviews recently and we'd like to share them with you.
The first review is from the guys at MACHOW2. It's an article reviewing several apps and solutions that provide similar functionality to Microsoft Publisher, but on the Mac. iStudio Publisher fares very well, and here's a quote from the review:
“iStudio Publisher is an extremely user friendly and powerful alternative to Publisher on Mac. It produces very professional results and yet is very easy to get started with thanks to the well thought out video tutorials and Quick Start Guide.”
Check out the full article here: Microsoft Publisher for Mac: Best Alternatives Publisher. It's worth checking out their website for other excellent reviews too. Thanks guys!
The second review is a YouTube video made by one of our users, Richie Vitale. Richie is a very prominent jazz trumpeter based in the US, and also a computer enthusiast. We're really pleased that he's taken the time to show off some of iStudio Publisher's features in his video. You can watch it here: iStudio Publisher Review by Richie Vitale. Thanks Richie, great job.

To run iStudio Publisher on OS X 10.11 El Capitan, you must install the latest iStudio Publisher 1.2.1, which is available as a free update. Everyone should update, irrespective of the version of OS X you are running.
iStudio Publisher is available as an App Store Edition (available from the Mac App Store) and a Website Download Edition (includes all licensing options we sell from our website store). You will need to update whichever edition you're using.
You can update the App Store Edition via the App Store, or update the Website Download Edition by checking for updates via the Help menu. Users occasionally report having installation problems, which is discussed here.
Fresh installs are available from here:

We’re pleased to announce the release of the Website Download Edition of iStudio Publisher 1.2.1, which is available as a free update to all existing users. To update simply launch your existing copy of iStudio Publisher and accept the update option, which should appear automatically, or else check for updates via the Help menu.
iStudio Publisher 1.2.1 is a maintenance release, which includes critical fixes for running on Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan, along with some other minor fixes and improvements.
For users of the App Store Edition, we have submitted this to Apple. Once Apple have completed their review process you will be able to get it for free via the App Store update mechanism. Note that your App Store purchase won't enable you to license the Website Download Edition, so please wait for the App Store Edition to become available.

Yesterday, we released the Website Download Edition of iStudio Publisher 1.1.10, intended for users with older computers running Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or 10.5 Leopard, who can't update to the latest iStudio Publisher 1.2.1 (which requires OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard or later). Existing users of iStudio Publisher on OS X 10.4 or 10.5 can get the iStudio Publisher 1.1.10 update by launching iStudio Publisher and accepting the update option, which should appear automatically.
iStudio Publisher 1.1.10 is a maintenance release comprised of housekeeping items and stability improvements. It includes many of the same bug fixes added to iStudio Publisher 1.2 and 1.2.1.
We are very happy to continue supporting iStudio Publisher users on older Macs. Although these users can no longer install the latest versions of iStudio Publisher, we will continue to support legacy versions of iStudio Publisher, and provide email support.

We have recently discovered that some maintenance apps (such as MacKeeper) may damage iStudio Publisher’s application bundle when used to ‘clean’ a Mac. This occurs if the cleaning process removes the 32-bit binary from the bundle, with the result that iStudio Publisher will no longer launch.
To fix the problem configure your maintenance app to exclude iStudio Publisher from its cleaning process (or stop using the maintenance app), and install a new copy of the iStudio Publisher application software.
More information here.
Note that from iStudio Publisher 1.3 onwards we'll be removing support for 32-bit binaries, so this will no longer be an issue.
Just letting you know I'm really enjoying using your product! I've been working on a publishing project since purchasing iStudio a week or so ago and it's been a pretty smooth experience.
Thanks again for the nice software at such a great price! Looking forward to the next updates and future versions! Keep up the good work!
I LOVE iStudioPublisher! It is so “friendly” to use and yet can do so much. It is EXACTLY what I've been looking for. And I love the detailed support you provide on your site. Your customer support is quick to respond, warm, friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful. I had been a Quark fan for years but I couldn't afford to buy it again when I upgraded my computer. Now I'm so glad because I like this program much better. It is much more flexible and has many more creative options. I love it that I have so much control over objects and text. I can put them exactly where I want them on a page. The program is set up so intuitively, it's as if you've anticipated all my needs. I'm very excited to have discovered it. My mind smiles every time I use it. Thank you!
I really like the program. It was fast to pick up… and the videos you have are very helpful. I have finished the presentation I got it for… and it was not much of an interruption for the learning curve. Much of it was very intuitive per my past experience with MS Publisher. I actually like this better than MS Publisher. You have done a terrific job.
