I’m not competent enough in Flash to use a component, so this kind of product is ideal. All I ask is that, once I’ve paid for it (and price isn’t a problem, within reason) I can create what I want. Extensive Google searching has drawn a blank, but maybe I’m using the wrong terms.In addition, both aXmag.com and Issuu.com are good choice.
