4 Minute Pholium Overview and Tutorial
Pholium is an iPad app allowing users to create high quality digital multimedia photo books for their iPad device and seamlessly give those books to others – iPad to iPad via Wifi transfer through our cloud AND, beautiful photo quality multimedia enabled printed books ordered straight from their iPad and in the app. A Pholium book goes beyond the conventional book experience and utilizes the high quality graphics, multimedia experience, and the tactile experience available on the iPad.
However you get your images into your iPad Photo app, whether it be syncing with iPhoto, iCloud, iTunes, or wirelessly, once there those that you select are easily imported into your Pholium Gallery to be included in the books you create — and your Gallery photos can be organized and remain there for inclusion in your books at any time. Alternatively, you can import images directly from Facebook and Instagram into your Pholium Gallery.
Pholium’s cloud handles publishing for you, seamlessly. After setting up your account within the app, you will have the opportunity to distribute e-books you’ve created. After completing a book, you “publish” it to your Library. To give it to recipients you choose, simply click Send, and Pholium will walk you through the process. With each new book you create you may give copies of it to unlimited recipients. After your book is uploaded from Pholium to your iCloud or Dropbox, your recipients are notified via push notification on their iPad and via email. Your recipients with Pholium have the option of automatically downloading your e-book inside the app and enjoy the full Pholium experience or seeing a web version via a link; the latter allows your recipients who do not have an iPad to see your completed e-book.
Pholium does include the ability to add text and of course you may create any type of book you want. However, Pholium is designed for creating multimedia print and photo e-books and provides a rich photo print and e-book experience.
